Happy New Year! Welcome 2011!

Just wanted to wish everyone a very happy and prosperous new year. I had somewhat of a rough 2010 with getting laid off in February, picking up a temp, contract position in late June (which was only supposed to be 5 weeks and turned into 6 months) but then not getting the contract renewed into the new year. Back to looking for full-time employment for me after the weekend. Here's to hoping that 2011 is a better year.

I hope to get some projects done next week to post. With the holidays, I just haven't gotten alot of crafting done. I did get a new green Expression (from me) for Christmas. I also got some mats, one new cartridge (Quarter Note) and some gift cards for Michaels so will be shopping for more supplies and/or cartridges.

Happy New Year to all! Be safe and see you in 2011!

Just a little post of a project

Hi All,

Hope everyone is getting ready for Christmas. I still have to do most of my shopping but have gotten the ones that needed to be shipped, shipped out yesterday. One less worry.

Anyway, here is a little set of blocks that I made last weekend. They are 1"x1" blocks that I glued paper to and used letter stickers from Creative Memories.

Enjoy! Merry Christmas!

Christmas Card 2010

Here is my Christmas card that I sent out to family and friends. I had a great time making them, all 63 of them! Took me a few days to finish them all, but I got them done and out in the mail the day after Thanksgiving. I think that is the first time I have ever gotten my cards mailed out that early. I used Very Merry Tags for the tree. Hope you like it.

Thanks for looking. Have a Very Merry Christmas and a happy and prosperous new year!

Design Team submission for Craft Junkie Too!

Here is my submission for Craft Junkie Too for this week. We were tasked with submitting a project/hint/whatever idea for organization during the holidays. This is a box that I had gotten at Target off the clearance rack. I always lay out the Christmas cards that I receive for display on my hearth. This year I wanted something different. I used vinyl on this project and used Celebrate with a Flourish for the Merry Christmas and Jasmine for the Cards 2010. I will keep my cards in this box sitting on my hearth. And next year, all I have to change is the year. How is that for recycling!!
Hope you like it. Let me know what you think. Merry Christmas to all!!
