Finally Some Creativity

Thursday, February 14, 2013

Hope everyone has had a fabulous Valentines Day. I had to work so no crafting today, which brings me to a question. Do you ever feel like you just don't have time to do anything creative? I do. Often.

Weekends generally look something like this;  start with a trip to Home Depot for a window for our bathroom, some conduit stuff,  electrical miscellany, a single roll of insulation and for me darn near every Behr paint inspiration sheet at the paint chip wall  any sort of home improvement project the husband needs my feedback on. Then random other things, errand, groceries etc. But I'm finally getting some time or rather making it a prioity.

While DH is upstairs listening to music working on some task to get us closer to to getting our sheet rock up. I on the other hand am working on cleaning up my craft space (never happens, things just get moved around) so I can get my sewing project finished. Currently my table looks like this.
Its slightly cleaner now but not much.  I moved on to getting a card made for my MIL's birthday last week and got a couple of pictures taken.  I got myself the new Anna Griffin Cuttlebug package from HSN for my birthday. It came a little over a week ago and  I'm tickled with all the folders. I haven't figured out how to get a good photo of the  folders so I cant show you what I was working with.  I'll be working on my picture taking skills, and I'm taking suggestions too.
I am a big fan of the white on white cards. So using four of my Anna Griffin embossing folders I made small panels and adhered them with my tape runner.
I used basic white card stock, misted it all with glimmer mist and then added my final (smaller) square set on a diagonal. Bear with me while I lean some photography skills. I swear my pictures will get better. This was the best picture I got of the card but practice makes perfect.

Tomorrow I'll be posting the adorable treat boxes I made for my mother to take to her reading room kids. Also be on the look out for some changes on my blog. I'm doing a bit more with Close to My Heart and while I don't want to be a full blown non stop advertisement for it, I do want it to have a bit of a bigger presence, but more on that later.
