A Very Merry Season is Upon Us

EEEEK.  That's all I can say when I see snow upon me.  I am NOT a winter time gal.  Having grown up in the south, I am more at home in warm and even HOT weather.

But alas, here I am.  Delaware.  Thank goodness where I live we get a good cushion of the warm Atlantic that tends to keep the DEEP chill at bay (I'm thinking of a friend in Michigan who lives in winters I can't even IMAGINE).

So, for this card...I decided to make myself SMILE with my skinny legged snowman.  And he matches the button I used SO NICELY

...which remind me...

...I am blathering on about me when I should be talking about PINQUE PEACOCK

cuz I'm participating in the release hop this month.

Blog Hops. Something I am grateful for. Something that brings me inspiration across miles that I would otherwise not be able to see.  Nor bring me a kindred spirit for the craft.

So go get yourself the INSPIRATION...and possibly the PRIZES available.

Warm Cozy - For the Holidays - Gift Tag!

Since the weather began turning a bit chill here, I started knitting again!  Above is a hat I actually DESIGNED myself.  I've tried it without the cable and in a few different colors.  It's a slouchy hat that fits my style.

But most of the hats I've made, I won't be keeping.  They will be nice cozy gifts for friends and family (not saying who, tho!)

I'm happy to report that I've completed more than 8 different colors and styles of hats, which means I just might be ready (which almost NEVER happens).

And of course, I have to make a tag to go with it, right!  Well, this stamp from Unity arrived in my mailbox last week just in time for a tag to be created for this cap.

I also used a bit of some of my favorite 3GIRLJAM crinkle ribbon from last year's holiday bundle.  I've been hoarding it!

Here's a close-up!


Well, that's it for me!  It's been a long time since I have been able to participate in Friends With Flair.  Now I need to go peek and se…

You're the Best

Just wanted to pop in quickly and show you a card that I made using one of my fun new buttons from Pinque Peacock.  I knew I would LOVE using these Farm Fresh buttons when I first saw them.

I thought I would start the month off right with a bright and joyfully colored card of thanks, realizing my color choices are totally out of season!

I have all but abandoned this blog over the last month due to work and life craziness.  I finally put down the keyboard (I work in the IT industry) and decided to take some time to let my inner artist free.

So, last weekend, I took a Clay Monoprinting workshop at a local artist's studio and LOVED it.  I knew I would, because I took the same workshop a couple years ago, except I took the one day version.  Mitch is truly an inspiring artist.  And so helpful.  He's very eager and willing to spread what he knows on to others.  He isn't having another workshop in my area until next year, but I just know I will most likely sign up again!
