Still Got Nothing...

Hey Blog Friends!  I have been having a hard time creating lately.  School (aka work) has been eating up a lot of time.  Its soccer season here too.  Most importantly though, I just haven't felt like it.  I go sit down, I putter a little bit and then get up and walk away.  I made four Christmas cards the other day and then haven't felt the need to photograph them.  It's kind of weird.  However, I create and blog because I like too- not because I have an obligation or anything- so I decided I will just take a break.  When I finally feel the "mood" come back then I guess I will be back to posting.   I don't tell you this to sound self important, and no one has sent me emails wondering where I have gone, I just tell you because I feel bad letting my blog sit without updating.  As a blog reader, I always wonder whats up when there are no updates for a long time.  So anyway that is whats up here.  Nothing staggering or earth shattering, just me not "feeling it".  Take care blog friends and as always, thanks for stopping in!

WMS- a PaperCrafts Reject

P1060527 I submitted this to the latest PC magazine call. It was for masking (and also a spring theme). It didn't get picked up but I still like it. That little chick is one of my favorite WM stamps. I love it.  So anyways, lots of masking.  Then I colored with my copics and then I added some fun stickles and some cute paper trim.  Thanks for stopping in!  I know I have been real sporadic lately- just life going a bit crazy on me.  Hopefully I will settle in soon.

P1060531 Hello friends!  I actually have a card for you today!  I made this with some new patterned paper I picked up at my LSS last weekend.  The fruit paper is from doodlebug and the polka dot from cottage press.   They were both in 6x6 collections.  The stamped fruits are from hero arts.  A cute little small set that I do not know the name of.  I think the sentiment was in the same set.  Its based on a sketch from Papercrafts mag.  Thats all I got.  Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Mail!

Good Morning Friends!  Sorry its been so long since I have had crafty things up.   Mostly I just haven't been feeling in a crafty mood.  I did make two big projects (a book for my husband and present for someone else) but neither will be blog fodder.  Hoping to get back into the swing of things soon.  So for today's card I used a new stamp I got at my LSS.  Its from My Favorite Things- Pure Innocence.  Can't remember the stamp set name and I am too tired to go look.   Anyway I pieced the dress, shoes, and socks and also the little bird.  Everything else got colored with copics.  The grass was drawn in with my copic multiliner.  The paper is from Echo Park (Its new, I think its called Happy something or other- sorry I am not good with details).  Thanks for stopping by!

Rosemary for Rememberance

As always on this day, I remember September 11, 2001.  I spend some time thinking of those who sacrificed everything, of those who were taken too soon, and of those who are still sacrificing today.  I hope you will join me in reflection as we take some time from our busy lives to remember.

Back to School Cookies

P1060502 Hello Friends! Can you believe its September? That summer just flew by!  I am going back to work tomorrow.  We had some work days last week and on the first one I brought in these cookies, complete with little cutie tags.  I used the PTI tag die and apple die.  The apple stamp is from Fruit Fusion, the scallop border is from Beyond Borders, the scallop circle is from one of the Tag Its and the Just for You is from a Fillable Frame set.  All stamps from PTI.  I got the bakers twine from Crate and Barrel last year.  There is so much I will never be able to use it all! LOL
