Genuine Mess



Of all the cards I created for the Sore Bottom Challenge (that's what I'm calling this past weekend's experience), I really like this one the best.

I love grunge and you know I'm a sponging freak, and this card and the Medallion card I posted a few days ago are representative of the work that I most enjoy producing.

Today, I still have dark stains on almost all my fingers because not even the scrubbing pad could scour away all the sponging I did yesterday!

Did I say yet how happy I am to be moving onto the next project? I felt such accomplishment as the box containing over 190 cards went into the hands of Mr. USPS. If only he knew how many hours went into the contents of that box...

Love the fun, hip look of it! Good for you for completing that challenge- I can barely do 15 cards everyother month for my swap!

Baker John

Totally scrumptious, this bread. John is home from college right now and in-between hours of aimless gaming, he must be thinking of good food. He trolled my cookbook case and pulled a very old Italian bread cookbook out and VOILA....filled our house with the wonderful aroma of rosemary. His first loaf.

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 (l

Stylish Gift Bag

Today I have the above project featured over on the Pinque Peacock blog.   (go visit!) I love how it turned out.  It is a relatively simple design, but is sturdy and large enough to hold a nice size gift.  I put handmade soaps in it and I don't think it will have any trouble holding up under the weight! Anyway, hope you like it!  Let me know if you'd like a tutorial and I'll get my busy little hands to work! In the meantime, enjoy your holiday.  We are supposed to have some pretty heavy storms, but today, so far, it is nice enough (SUPER hot and humid, but very few clouds).
