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.

Mixed Up Media Chix - Summertime Blog Hop!

I have a fun project to share today!  Very excited about this one.  I've been working on it for over a week and...well...it's still not completely done, but it's getting there!
I've done this for a super wonderful friend that is going through a bit of a rough time.  She needs encouragement, so I'm putting together a little art journal to let her know how special she is.
And while this is a special gift, it's also part of a really fun blog hop I'm participating in with the other Mixed Up Media Chix!   Follow along...You'll truly be inspired.
So, if you need to start at the beginning:

Big Birthday Celebration

Are you here having fun hopping along with 3GirlJAM in celebration of Julie's sister's big birthday year?  What a great little cyber party we're having!  (she's really a young thing, but she's having a great year)

Well, if not, you should be hopping along (I'll tell you why in a moment). There are some really wonderful birthday ideas from all of us on the design team...and including Julie's two girls, who are also having fun celebrating their aunt's birthday.

If you need to go back to the beginning, head over to the 3GirlJAM blog to get started.  Otherwise....


Here's my card in celebration her special year! I used blue crinkle ribbon from the newly released Red,White,Blue Bundle.It's such a nice shade of blue!  The white has bits of the red and blue in it (and I love the ribbon when it's like that)...and the red is also pretty awesome...like marachino cherries.  The little button in the center is from Pinque Peacock (love lady bugs!) and e…
