"When you recover or discover something that nourishes your soul or brings joy,
care enough about yourself to make room for it in your life."

What I've Been Up To!

I know it has been a very long while since I've posted anything - I've been busy with 27 mini albums for the church girls (all Laura Denison's Lacy Flaps pattern and lots of punching!), making stuff for fun, and just playing in my studio!

This is a sample of my 2012 Christmas Ornaments (this one is mine!).  Below the wreath is a link to the YouTube video tutorial on how to create these fun wreaths!

I've made two different sized wreaths, all made with simple colored copy paper, and this particular wreath is made with 18 pieces of 3" x 3" paper. I also used silver stickles, a bead, crochet thread for the hanger, and I colored the sheer ribbon with some spray from Lindy's Stamp Gang line of products and used a different shade for the wreath.

Besides lots of wreaths, I've completed lots and lots of cards for birthdays, anniversaries and holidays.  Gary is still busy with his college classes and has finals next week.  He's doing very well and I am proud of all his effort! 

Spring has finally arrived in Montana (I think!), so the week after Gary's finals means the start of yard work, and dogs to groom and something tells me not near as much time in my studio!
