I know I have been away from my blog for a while and I apologize for that, but I have been enjoying freedom crafting! I am a slow crafter and sometimes I work for an hour or two just on a background and then find a way to make a card or project with it a couple of days later. That's why I like challenges as they make me pull up my socks and speed it up a bit. LoL!!!
I am SUPER EXCITED to share that I was chosen as an Honourable Gnome over on the Lawnscaping Challenge Watercolouring.
My daughter and I had made a card and we had lots of lovely comments about them. She was elated with excitement as this is the first time someone commented on one of her cards. Which I am VERY proud of her.
You can see the post here for that challenge.
As for me, I was away on vacation to the US and I was tickled with all the Tim Holts products that JoAnn's had (well compared to what I have here. Our Michaels does have a lot of product but it takes a long time for them to get in the new stuff). Mind you I was a bit disappointed with the lack of stamps but hey, something is better than nothing! Here is a picture of what I picked up. It helped that there was already 30% off (I missed the 50% by a day) and that I had a coupon for an extra 25%.
I am also participating in the latest Online Card Class - Stretch Your Stamps 2!
I am waiting for some stamps to arrive for that class so I haven't started posting my projects yet.
And yes, that would be the stamp that starts off the class! Hehehe! Oh well, it should be here tomorrow.
I have also been playing with new products from the Simon Says Stamp latest release "This is the life" so I am having lots of fun with those and will posting some of those soon.
This is the last week for Camp Scrap 2014 and I have to say, I am truly grateful to May for showing me that it all doesn't have to be planned or perfect and that has helped me in my creative process. I don't worry as much when I do work on a background for two hours and nothing comes out of it. I also enjoyed watching May go through her process when she would just "create". She cracks me up and I love the messy freedom that she goes through. Thanks May!
Well that is it for me. Sorry for the ton of updates and info, I promise to spread it out a bit more next time!
Thanks for stopping by!
See you soon.
