I will make this post short and sweet! 
When creating this card my vision was a lonely wildflower growing at the corner of an old building. Using my wood patterned papers I tried to create the look of wood panels, I topped off my bee with some Glitter on the wings, and used a dot of glossy accents on his feeet. Believe it or not the birthday girl sentiment I have had in my stash since 2009 I think! :) I used my first Cricut Bug machine, and very first pens. If I had one craft room goal, it would be to use up these items I have had stashed for years. It’s time to get crafting! 
Come on over and show us your card creations! We look forward to seeing you at Outlawz!

Yesterday, my hubby twisted my arm into buying the the Bright Pad by Cricut. It didn’t take much twisting as I was the one who brought up wanting one for my birthday next month. He insisted we get it that minute so I could play with it in my craft room. My first project was tracing this rose image from my mothers stained glass art photocopies. Once I had it traced I decided to paint it up with watercolors. I haven’t taken any classes on watercolor painting, so this was going to be a fun new project to attempt. 

I started this project yesterday, and worked on it throughout the day off and on, only finishing a few moments ago, just in time to get to bed at a descent hour.

DoTerra Essential Oil Labels

Yesterday, a friend of mine came over to do some crafting. We had a fun 11 1/2 hours of shopping at Hobby Lobby and doing crafts. We were making a wedding gift for a friend of hers. While we were at it we whipped up these labels on my Silhouette Cameo for her bottles of Essential Oils. Once the wedding gift has been received I can post photos of their beautiful gift.

Puffly Bumply C2C CAL

There is a little bit of a back story for this particular project. As a crocheter, or any crafter really, you find yourself searching the Internet quite often for ideas, and inspiration. One of the sites I would frequent for Crochet ideas, Craftsy.com. Who knew that one of the members of my crochet group on Facebook, Beginner’s Crochet Group to be exact, would have one of the instructors as a member. Just knowing that, let me tell you, I was ecstatic. I know, it wasn’t really much of a big deal. It still made me happy. 

So you can imagine how overjoyed I was when he asked me if he could offer a Crochet-A-Long for my group, with videos, and he would offer crochet instruction to any of the members who joined in the event. I know! I was so thrilled! The C2C CAL which is short for Corner to Corner Crochet A Long, with Charles Voth was a hit! The videos and instruction were more than I could have imagined. Quite a few members joined in the fun, making afghans, dishcloths, you name it, using the pattern by Charles that he so generously offered to the members for free! You see here in the photos above my finished dish cloth.
