On My Mind

Little things make me smile. Today I smiled because I got to create a project that involves two passions:  jewelry and paper crafting.  I was commissioned to create a jewelry tool for a client. Unfortunately, I was in such a hurry to get it over to her that I forgot to snap a photo of it prior to "locking" in this little package.  So, we'll just concentrate on the package.

It was really simple.  3 x 3.75 inches.  I scored every 7/8" on the longer side and created a little pentagon package that is fixed on each end with a 5 petal flower punch.  In the center, I punched a little hole where I strung twine that I purchased from another chick, on her ETSY site.

Then, of course, the sentiment, which is, of course, from Unity.  I love these new sentiment sets, because I'm ALWAYS looking for a good sentiment to use and these sets put them together for me. This one is from the { thoughts are with you} set and is perfect for what I wanted.

OK.  WELL, my other passion is photography and THIS is the time of year to take pictures.  So, on an adventure with my little garden gnomes (Oliver and Layla), we made sure the camera went along to capture these little hints of the earth renewed..that unfortunately wither all too quickly.

AND FINALLY, my little garden gnome.  He was such a good little gnome, posing so nicely.  Layla even watched him and wanted in on the action!


What a sweet little container! Love your Daffies and fur baby!

Julie's Blogoversary Blog Hop {Celebrate Friendship}

I'm here joining in Julie's Blogoversary!  I'm sure you are here hopping along and celebrating with her!
If you are, then, YES, you're here.
If you want to start at the beginning, start at Julie's blog!
There isn't much more fun than spending a Friday, chatting and visiting with friends, right!   And we're celebrating all weekend long to give you plenty of time to visit all of us and share your stories of friendship and craft!
Stamping and scrapbooking has a way of bringing friends together, doesn't it?  It does for me.  In fact, my best friends (and some of my oldest friends) were brought together because of this art form.  
Blog Candy
I'm one of the folks offering blog candy in celebration of the hop!  So, leave me a comment telling me one of your stories of friendship and crafting and you'll be eligible for some crafty goodness!
