Graphic 45 Design Team 2012 Audition

Well, my goodness- what a mess! Here are some of my projects that I love! Some kind people have purchased my recipe and address books, but here are some of my favorites. I do love parties, and you MUST have a hat that is made just for you! "It's my birthday don't ya know" just makes me laugh! It has a crown style verses the cone like the others that are fun. I made this sweet card for my sister's new baby. Bucket? you ask....her big sister wanted to call her that, so for nine months little Beatrice was referred to as "Bucket"! (and still called that by Josie) Did you notice the hand stitched felt heart-love it. I have to start gifting some of my banners, one CAN have to many. Here is my Halloween and Alice banner. I know you can't read the details which is to bad, they are my favorite lines from the movie. My latest project was my little Christmas houses---LOVE THEM! Again, the shimmer, the colors, the detail in side- OH MY! Well I did have fun and always love to create!

now I told you I would try....

and I did! I have uploaded my photos to the computer today and am going to give it a go! I am getting ready for my crop. The crop that Kristie has called "Let's Scrap". You have to know that Kristie has become one of my closest friends, we met 5 years ago when she joined a family I helped nuture. I do not get to see the small remainder of these friends from this family but that is the reason I hope to maintain the crops. Without getting to sentimental about what it really means to join these people with me, and taking to long to decide, Kristie, with hands in the air, blurted "Let's Scrap". So there is our creative title. I have been working on a goodie for the girls that attend. I didn't tell them this of course, where would be the surprise. And no one know about my blog so though they won't check for it but I will post the photo of this later with the story of the goodie. I am also crocheting some wash cloths for my mom-n-law Pam. But that didn't get download these. Apparently I need to learn to place the photos better but it's a start!

Oh what fun it is .....

I am pleased to say that I have been visiting my studio, and creating up there. "My Studio" is the room upstairs, where I have gathered ALL my crafting goodies. Though it is quite a mess, it is MINE! My husband is quite convinced that I really don't know what is up there, but I have so many ideas, you know, where your brain NEVER rests, so I am always working on serveral projects at one time! Maybe one day it will be presentable to show you!

It has been a year and a half that my greatest fan, my teacher, my safe haven has been gone. I am still missing my Nani, but have reached the point where I don't just sit in my studio and stare. The good news is the creativeness is returning, and what is missing now is my friends. I am not real good about getting on the computer, so I miss out on the conversations and pictures my friends are sharing! I am planning to host my first crop in March, so we shall see...... fun, fun, FUN!

I am going to post some photos of some of my work from the last year. I have been homebound and as you can see my product is not new but how lovely it still is!
