It's Monday!!!!

You'all know what that means don't you? It is time for another Love to Create Challenge sponsored by QKR Stampede  and Dreariedolls.

I used an image from QKR and the title is Bundled Up..I just thought how I had bundled my kids up so many times when they were younger as we spent the largest portion of their childhood in Nebraska and often even Halloween costumes had to be bought to fit over the coats and mittens. Hope you enjoy and a very Happy Monday Morning to you :)

Craft Club December 2012

This is the final of a years worth of craft club meetings.  What happens is that we have 12 or 6 members each taking a month to sponsor/host making a meal for all and bringing an idea and base supplies for your craft that you are teaching. And BAM! It's chick night with food frolic /crafting ..can it get any better???? This December was at "Diane the Awesome" house/ compound and we had open pit BBQ and Dump cake in cherry and apple and smores and ...did i say cowboy soup ? Good grief! Thank you again Diane and Eddie. Diane supplied us with various cigar boxes and we went to crafting. This is my result as I had to take mine home half finished because I talked more than crafted..and ate..and then talked and laughed")

I have been given the Go-A-Head..the show off! It's the big Kahuna! I am so excited /honored and all around proud . This was a while in the making and I am truly so blessed and honored to have had one of my pieces chosen. I love Somerset Studio ..all of their publication are truly the best of every medium that can and could be found and full of inspiration. The talent displayed with every issue makes this world a smaller place for me and it is a art family that I have yearned to  be a part of. So with that being said.

Scor Pal & DCWV Autumn Melody

 Good day my friends! Today along with my fellow design team members I  am giving a shout out to Scor Pal and my beloved DCWV . We have all made you a project using both items to both inspire and awe.....Are you awed??? :) My little book is made using the accordian fold technique on my Scor Pal. I know you have all mostly seen this before but still love the results! Go over to my fellow design team list and click away to see all of these fantastic ideas from us ...Your DCWV design team inspiration guru's :)
(UPDATE) I am sorry I didn't put the details on here further ya all. The mini is 3 X 3 inches. It is the accordian fold technique some call it meander  and I have to admit than when searching,  out of all the tutorials I found,  I prefer Beate Johns best. So here is her link and do have fun. This pattern has been around since the ..well since Oragami was used to tie toga's...or sarongs..or kimono's You get the picture. Have fun!

Random Blog Blatherings

Today whilst getting ready to pack my studio....I looked around to realize WHolly CRAP! That is a lot of crap! You are all aware that I am hands down a 100% product ho..I can't help if a bag of newly recieved or bought embellies,  paper or a random tube of something in a bazillion variables makes me feel complete. I have hocked merchandise for so long now that I feel almost dirty....I do ..HONEST! Right up until that next random box comes to the all know the sound. Vroom vroom vroom the truck gears down , then you hear the small squeal of the impatient driver opening the slide door whilst plugging the emergency brake.....By this point your heart is in your throat and the body pause has commenced....(inner) voice asking, is it my house or next doors?? BZZZZZZZ inner squeal as you shoot into action towards the front door ..always a small bit o fear that he will leave with out leaving the goods. Ahhh satisfaction. Yes this is a feeling I have long been addicted to and have come to the very brave conclusion that it isn't the stuff in the boxes.....BUT THE HIGH OF THAT KIND OF EXPECTATION.  Instantly I feel the kind of excitement that makes my entire body pee shiver ") I wish you all a pee shivering great day!
