The last couple weeks have found me playing with my crochet hook and playing a few games on FaceBook ..... though I did delete a couple of those time consuming games that I found I was spending far too much time on and never getting anywhere on ! I am so much happier and productive since I got rid of them too !!! The past few weeks have also found me down to the count on more then one occasion with a migraine ( darn weather systems coming through always do that too me ! BLECK !!!! ) so NOTHING gets done !!!
Well the weather is more Springlike then winter this year and we have had a lot more sunny days this year then last ! YEAH !!! I don't think I have SAD but I do know that I feel a LOT more productive when the sun shines ! I don't even mind the colder days as long as we see the sun !!! LOL ! I still will be really happy when we can get the RV going again .... but that will be a few months away yet !!!!
The past few days has found me wandering down the hall on more then one occasion to my desk . I have got 4 images colored and today I even got to put together a card as the inspiration hit me ! I had just received the Magnolia paper yesterday and knew exactly what I wanted to do with it ..... and a good friend had sent me the image ( you know who you are and I thank you so much as it was a lot of fun to color and create with ! ) . All the white paper used on this card is from an envelope that we received a Christmas card in . It was so beautiful that I knew I had to reuse it for something ! It is very shiny IRL ! I used Copics to color my image with though I have no idea which ones ! I think this one will be my DH's Valentine's card ( even though he will be away on business ! ) . The image and the background are from the latest Magnolia release . All embellishments came from MICHAEL'S at some point and some I have had sitting for a long time ! The crystal butterfly came from the bridal isle and was on clearance ! Got to love that !
I am not entering my card in any challenges as I just enjoyed creating freely with no pressure and just for the joy of playing !
These are a few of the projects I worked on over the last week ....... 99% of the designs came from my head ( as I said before , I don't follow directions very well ! LOL ! ) All the crocheting is FOR SALE except for the last red bird at the bottom . That is for my GRANDSON who is an ANGRY BIRD lover ! The owl cap will fit a newborn or younger baby ( depending on their head size of course ) , the blue poorboy cap is the same size and the first RED BIRD hat will fit a large toddler or youth as the yarn has a lot of give . All are washable . The little headband is made with stretchable sock yarn and will fit a newborn to small baby .
Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org . I will be away from Feb 18th-29th ( yes , it is a leap year ! ) and will not have my laptop with me so if I don't contact you immediately that is why ! I am off to see my parents and siblings ( and there families ) but pln on having some yarn and a hook or two with me ! The Copics will have to stay home though !
Have a great week everybody and happy creating !!!

- I have been married to the same guy for a LONG time ! We have 3 grown children and the 5 loves of our lives that they have given us ... 4 girls and one boy ! I have been crafting all my life and found my true addiction when I taught myself to use Copic Markers and introduced them into my card making ! I am NOT certified in the use of Copics but that doesn't stop me from creating with them ! I always been a bit of a crafting rebel and don't follow directions well !I love crafting with my hands and seldom will you find them idle as they usually have a crochet hook , knitting needles or a book in them . Exercise is not my strong suit ! LOL ! My husband and I also love camping in our RV ( weather permitting ... as in NO snow !) so most weekends from Spring to Fall you find us camped somewhere with our 3 Yorkies .... though don't tell them they aren't BIG dogs ! Hope you enjoy my little touch of my life .... the creative and the real life !
