Hardly! The temperatures have been in the mid 60's - 70's and that rain we were dying to have this summer has made its way to Houston. Well, at least indoors we are surrounded by the sights and sounds of a toasty, family Christmas!
I cannot begin to express how I have enjoyed my time away from school so far. I have finished a couple of secret gifts that I can safely post here because I know my sweet daughters do not read my blog.
I found this precious poem that managed to express my thoughts exactly over on Pinterest. I simply retyped it in a font I liked and embellished with the most amazing flowers that the Close To My Heart Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge makes. The shadow boxes came from Michael's. I found them on sale so this was a pretty inexpensive project. I would consider making them to sale as a special order item. The pictures just do not do the flowers justice though. They are gorgeous!
I have also finished a sampling of the Constant Campaign Rock the Block (Check out the Constant Campaign tab for details!). I am going to LOVE putting these on my mantle!
This would make an awesome gift for yourself or to give to a friend. Pick your words and use your scraps! Each block is 2x2. If you purchase it before January 31st, you will also get an E size set of stamps that work beautifully with the blocks to add fun sentiments.
Today's mission is to start making so fun projects and cards that I can MASS produce for an upcoming craft fair. It will be my first one so I am really looking forward to it. I am also prepping for 30ish kits for a precious two page layout that I will be teaching at the Pasadena Expo January 21 and 22, 2012. COME SEE ME for a fun freebie!
Better get the coffee and B12 going! Happy Crafting!
