Hello Crafty Friends,
I have been able to sit and create a few projects during the past two days and what a great feeling it has been. At first I was worried that I would get the new desk dirty and I was afraid to touch anything, but that feeling quickly faded once I started. Shortly later my hubby asked me if I liked my room and I said, "YES!"
I found some wall decor at Hobby Lobby, purchased the last four kraft photo boxes for my cube, hubby put that valance up, and I created a couple blue bouquets of flowers. Just waiting for UPS to deliver my Michaels storage cart and marker cubes.
I chatted with Carri of DoubleClick this afternoon and we decided to make a birthday project to enter some challenges. I miss those days when we would have so much more time to craft together.
I found this die at the Orlando Scrapbook Expo. It is by Elizabeth Craft Designs. I had never heard of the company before, but I was quickly impressed with the variety of dies, the demonstrations, and the kindness of the staff at the booth. I used Milled Lavendar Distress Ink to color the macaron. I didn't have any micro glitter (on the list now), so I used glitter glue which worked fine. The itty bitty stamp is an oldie by My Pink Stamper.
I used some purple glitter skittles by DoubleClick Skittles.
I had fun crafting and I am looking forward to the rest of the summer. Lots of ideas brewing! If you like what you see, please become a follower. Leave me your blog name and I will stop by to see what you have been making!
