New Wedding Cake Card Flavors

I was fortunate enough this weekend to attend a crop at the local scrapbook store Eclectica, and one of the items I worked on was a new wedding cake card - I wanted to do one in chocolate and I was very pleased with the way it turned out. After finishing that card I worked on two more at home and they are now available for order. I actually timed myself on these cards because I had no idea how long they took to make, I thought maybe 30 - 45 minutes; I was way off - almost an hour and a half for one card - they are so pretty, worth all the time put into them. I can't wait for someone I know to either get married or have an anniversary so I can create one for them.

Getting Ready for Valentine's Day - Already

I say already like I'm working on these items and it's December or something, well at least Valentine's Day is still over a month away, so there is still time to buy your loved one's something unique and handmade from me. I've added a mini frame and a couple owl card/magnet combo's to my etsy shop, please feel free to go check them out; I've also been getting stuff done for my space here in town at Creativity in Bartlett; so I've been busy and enjoying working on something other than snowflakes.

Here are some of my new items (that can be found in Creativity) or you can contact me and I can create something just as original for you - in addition to the matchstick notepads I have mini frames and a double photo holder - I've gotten back into making roses and I miss them; these turned out so pretty I want to keep them or least make a set for me.

Happy 2010!

Wow, it's almost the fifth day of the new year and I'm just now wishing everyone a Happy New Year; I can see things haven't completely changed; I'm still a smidge late on things. Perhaps that should be one of my new year's resolutions, try to be on time; I hate watching time so I just don't see it happening.

I started out the year on a creative high you could say. I attended a crop at the locally owned scrapbook shop in my area and was very productive. I finished 20 cute little valentine matchbooks, each with 12 sheets of paper, cut by me. The front of each matchbook has a tiny scalloped edge with a little bit of glitter ( I love glitter! ) and a quilled heart. These are samples that will be part of the January 2010 Valentine Themed Boxes at Sampler Village, go check them out and see what it's all about.

After finishing these up I started on Valentine cards with owl magnets attached; they're a card and a gift all in one; perfect to give to your favorite Valentine this year. The owl magnet fits perfectly in a hole on the front of the layered card, once the owl is removed there's a little secret behind there, too cute! I hope everyone is having a fabulous 2010 so far, I think this is going to be a good year.
