Whatta Mess!!!

When my sister, Janice, her son and his wife and baby, arrived on Thursday to spend the night and hopefully some beach time on Friday morning before leaving for the airport to return home, I shut the door to my workroom with good reason: I cannot even see my work table nor my desk where I normally work on my cards. I know my sister was horrified at the mess; even I get the willies whenever I go in there. I have to search for supplies and take them to the dining room table to have space (and sanity)to work on anything.

The Fashion Diva

Today is Morgan's third birthday which we celebrated last Friday. I had made her a few outfits which she agreed to model for us. The first two outfits were made using Simpicity pattern 2684; the last one is made from See & Sew 5405 (this was an old pattern dated 1985!)

Christmas 2009 Scrapbook

Yes, it's a little early but time IS running out. These are the pages we made at Donna's and Emily's Christmas scrapbook pages workshop. Again, they did a wonderful job with the pages. I usually do 12x12 and have never done a 6x6 but these look like keepsake album pages to me! I'm doing two, one for each of my sons as part of the family's gift this year (I may do it again next year if they are well received).

Send a Sick Child A Love Letter

A couple days ago I happened onto this web site: This 501(c)(3) organization in nearby Altamonte Springs, FL, has a wonderful project to send uplifting "Love Letters" to sick children (up to the age of 18). Visit this site to find out more about how you can contribute some of those cards in your stash, plan a "Love Letter" card making session with your crafting friends, or send the organization a book of "Forever" stamps to use on the cards.

From the Stash Drawer

This is one of several cards I've made using a trading card from Donna when she gleaned her stash (before moving to her new house) of Stampin' Up trading cards from their conventions. The card is Brocade Blue cardstock from Stampin' Up, the ribbon is a scrap from the last Card Gallery, the flower centers have Silver Ice, Starry Night, or Candy Cane Stickles, and three shiny silver 'dots'. The blue dot background paper is from my stash. You could use different color ink pads and various sizes of pencil erasers to create your own.
