Never start cleaning in the Craft Room

Or you will never get anything done.  Yesterday I was suppose to be cleaning.. And if you saw my craft room  you would realize why I wanted to start there.  So I get into the room and was trying to figure out where to start when my mind starts wandering.  "Hmmm, I need a gift box for Saturday"  "OK I will quick whip that up and at least be done with that"  Then I will get right back to cleaning.  Well, 6 hours later there has been nothing done in the cleaning department but I had a beautiful gift box.  One thing off the list and there is always tomorrow.  Company wont be here until Sat so that leaves me three more days to get everything cleaned, right? The Church pattern is from  It comes with the church, gift bag, a card, and a small gift box.  And it all was cut with my Silhouette.  Gotta love that machine!!

Walk alone

Wow, i made cards two days in a row.  I am on a roll now.  This cute little image is from Sassy Cheryl's Digi's.  Again I colored it with my Copic's.  I just used the digi images and added nothing but a few Zapdots under the stars.  They are clear pop dots that I got at the Queens Ink.  They aren't real thick so they don't raise the images too high.  I like that.  Again the papers are from Graphic 45.  The pad is called French Country.  The inside has the stars across the top colored on white paper and a little strip of the red paper at the bottom.  Lots of space for a message sense this card is an A6----4 1/2" x 6 1/4".

My goodness how long has it been sense I posted a card.  I have been so busy with all my other hobbies that it seems like forever.  This little image I bought from Sassy Cheryl's Digi's.  I thought it was so cute. There is the same image that is a little boy.    And I really needed a few just "hello" cards..  They are so good to use to drop a line to someone that you haven't spoken too in a while.  I colored it with my Copic markers and used Graphic 45 papers for the background. I was pretty pleased to see how it came out. The red flower is one punched out of coffee filters and colored with Copic's.  The paper that she is printed on is a little sparkly.  I am not sure who makes it.  I almost think it is from Stampin Up. I am going to do some checking because it worked with the markers really well.  I dug out my decorative scissors to cut the mat behind the main image.  Boys, it had been a while sense those were used.  (or dusted)

Hat model

I have found a model that does justice to my hats I have been making.  I finally added the flower to this one.  The doll I made back in 1989 I think.  I have had it setting up over my dresser all this time.  I use to do craft fairs back then.  Mostly I did folk art paintings.  My neighbor, Margaret Allen who also did the fairs, made these dolls and she showed me how to do them.  She was a definite artist when it came to sewing things.  So the doll has now been promoted to hat model.  She definitely looks better in it than my last model----me.
