Valentine's Day Card #4 - 2016

The fourth card for the Valentine's Day card workshop focuses on embossing with a Close To My Heart folder. I also used the inside of the arrow/heart from card #2. The glitter glue looks so much more vibrant in person.

Valentine's Day Card #3 - 2016

Valentine's Day Card Workshop

Continuing to work out of my creativity wagon in hopes of completing the samples for Thursday's workshop. My craft room is typically my sanctuary of life, but lately it has not given me any inspiration, mostly due to the piles of years I need to scrapbook. I have been inflicting guilt on myself about how I have neglected that important part of my life... preserving my boys lives.

Well, I am standing up, shaking off the guilty feelings and stamping my heart out, pun intended, especially with card #2 (yesterday's post). Here is card #3.


Enjoy!

About Me, January 10, 2016 - Long Time, Need to Catch Up!

New Year, New Me... Isn't that what we all like to start out a new year saying?! Well, I am not going to make a promise to myself or any of you for that matter to be better about consistency. Consistency with my "About Me" posts is something I have not proven on my blog so far, so I don't think it is something I will promise now. We just ride it out and see what happens in 2016.

For now, About me as of January 10. Since the holidays and the first week back to teaching after a two week break are behind me, I plan to get back on the creativity wagon. The first task at hand is the Valentine's Day themed card workshop on January 14, 6-9 pm 5/cards $10. Here are the first two cards I have finished up today.



Stay tuned as I have three more cards to create before Thursday night. Did I mention I just got back on the creativity wagon :-) It is a fun, but slow process after slacking off for two weeks.

Enjoy!
