I Changed My Picture

There's just so much I could take of seeing me looking all sassy. It was even getting on my OWN nerves. So, I changed my photo. The new one was taken of me at our transition party in November.

I'm starting to "feel" the return to work. Moving back to getting up SUPER early for work again is making feel tired by 8 pm. Ugh. I was liking my vacation.

I just "had" to get a swap in the mail this morning. I'm in so many, I'm starting to feel a bit overwhelmed. I'm thinking I better chill out a little after I finish these up. One thing nice about the swaps...it MAKES me create...and forces me to think in terms of a particular theme. Which is good. I tried a few of the challenges, but that doesn't work for me, because if someone is not expecting to receive the finished product, I may not do it at all. I'll think about it, but not get it done. So, swaps are good to make me DO and COMPLETE something.

I want to get back to my jewelry creations. I have a few projects in mind.

I sent the hostess for the swap I mailed a little treat with her package:

I liked the sassy picture!! I think that might be why I joined your swap! I was like, "I like her!".
I still like you with your new picture:) We can still be friends.

I have been joining more and more swaps as of late. They encourage me to be creative. I have a hard time getting motivated to be crafty if I don't have a task at hand.

I love the hostess treat. I am going to start doing that.

My Rising Sign

Your Rising Sign is Taurus


You are the ultimate rock - stable and centered.
People turn to you in crisis and count on you for calm.
Stubborn and strong minded, you can't be pushed around.
You are also tenacious, and you always will stick with something difficult.
A bit fan of nature, you're attracted to the beauty of the outdoors.
And sometimes, you find it easier to relate to animals than people.

What's Your Rising Sign?

Well, okay, I don't know about stable.
And surely, my husband, at least, would argue about coming to me for "calm".

But the rest, yeah.

Inspirational Unity Blog Hop

I have three huge passions related to art: photography, jewelry making, and paper crafts.

Above combines two of those passions: jewelry making and paper crafts. The necklace featured is a gift for a friend.

I used Unity Stamp Company stamps in all the projects shown in the picture above. If you look closely, you'll even see that I used the Hawaiian Border and the swirls in the lambs fleece of Love Ewe to make the bronze charms in the jewelry above!




Besides the stamps used, other materials included Bronz Clay, antiqued bronze findings, and various beads.

Of course, what gift isn't complete without packaging?



You can find the tutorial for the bag Here.
Paper and cardstock, punches, and ribbon used are from Stampin Up! while the stamp used is from Unity's March Kit of the Month.

People who know me know how I strive to use humor everyday...and especially to make light of otherwise stressful situations. So, my quote for the day has absolutely nothing to do with my project. It's …

Unity Blog Hop

My project today is a little mini album I put together to give to my daughter, who is exploring the possibility of traveling across America from Washington State to Delaware in July. I wanted to give her something to log and journal her adventures!

I used stamps from Unity Stamp Company's June and November Kits of the Month for the cover.

Inside the cover, I put a little note. She plans to hitch hike which is extremely bothersome to me. I want her to be safe! Maybe I'll suggest flying out and renting a car and doing a rode trip with her! That would curb my fears and will also be fun!


The journal block comes from their September Kit.

Unity Stamp Company is featuring a sale on their previous Kits! This is the time to get them if you don't have ENOUGH! See their sales here: Sales at Unity



The inside pages were not made with a KOM stamp, but this stamp is cool all the same. I love this flower. It's big and has many uses!
