Papertrey Ink Blog Hop

New Year's Resolution

With the new year comes a clean slate along with many resolutions. This month's blog hop challenge

involves you challenging yourself to use a Papertrey stamp set that has yet to see ink or even one that

might be collecting a little dust! Go through your stash and see what little used treasure it might hold. If

you are in need of inspiration for your chosen set, feel free to utilize the gallery posted in the side bar of

each set's sale page on our website, or go to the Previous Countdown page on Nichole's blog where

each set is organized by month of release. 2011 is the year where what's old is new again!

I decided to use my Autumn Abundance Stamp Set to make a Think of You card for a friend who is ill.  The paper is the beautiful Webster's Pages Spring Market.

You can play along with today's blog hop challenge by posting your card on Nicole's Blog by 11pm tonight. 

Thanks so much for hopping by and see you next time!

My newest addition....

to my scraproom. 
My daughters friend fixed it up for me and painted it.  It's actually crackled painted but it's hard to see that in the photo. The knobs are original although he had to use new screws to attach them.  I love how you can seee the dove tailing f the drawers.  Thanks Justin, I love it!

Hello and a knitting roll.

Hello everyone and Happy New Year!

It feels like so long since I've posted, but everyone needs a vacation.  Actually I think I need a vacation from my vacation.  We ventured to Florida to Universal Studios and Adventure Islands to visit the new Harry Potter park.  It was the perfect time of year to go to miss all the crowds and we never had to wait longer then a few minutes at any ride.  Which made it a spectacular trip.  Unfortunately the weather didn't cooperate very much and we were in winter clothes all week.  No winter tan to be found here.  But at least it wasn't snowing. 

Today I finished a project.  I've been so into teaching myself how to sew lately.  I love finding cute little projects to make for my friends.  This one is for a special friend to just randomly is very kind and generous so I thought I would surprise her with a little gift.  It's not perfect, but it is made with love and I know she will see that.  I made her a knitting needle holder.  The first picture is of it flat.  There are 3 layers of different size pockets to hold several needles.  The the top fold down and you role it up to store or carry your projects without loosing the needles.  I'll ask her for some feed back before I make the next one and see if I can perfect the pockets before the next one.  Isn't the fabric so pretty.  Most of it is Moda and made from a few fat quarters and scraps from other projects. 

I found another use for my Clip it Up Jumbo.  Here I draped it with fabric and it's the perfect higth to take photos of small projects. 

CHA sneak peaks are in full swing.  If you haven't stopped by the Webster's site and blog your missing out on some of the best new lines of the year.  Spring Market is already released and there are giveaways for their CHA releases going on now in the forum. 

Thanks for stopping by!

Brave Girls Club Soul Restoration Projects

Today I started gathering supplies to make my kit for the Brave Girls Club Soul Restorations Class.  My first project is the bag.  I made 2 bags, the green one is for my friend Ellen who I also made a pin cushion to match.  And the other one is mine.  If you should need one for your class shoot me an email and I would be happy to make one for you if you pay for the materials ($5.) and shipping to you. 

One more for today, this one is for my friend Andrea. 

I'm so excited for this class.  I can't wait for it to start even though I'll be on vacation for a few days at the beginning.  I'll jump right back in as soon as I get home.

Happy New Year!

We are in just recoup mode here.  Everyone is just relaxing so I took the opportunity to play with some pretty paper and the new Unity/Webster's stamps.  I made these cards in honor of the original Webster's DT. 

and this one is a digi version with Webster's Sweet Season. 

Thanks for stopping by and Happy New Year!
