February Workshop

Edited to add pages with photos: Just thought I'd add some photos of the completed pages. These pictures are of my daughters at a photo shoot for a local clothing designer. They started modeling for Isabel Garreton when they were about 18 months old. They stopped when they became too big for the clothes. It was a fun time in their lives & we created memories we will cherish forever. Isabel was a joy to work with, and I'm so glad to have known her!

I am starting a new series of workshops for my CTMH customers called "Pick-a-Pack" Workshop. Each lady orders one of the new CTMH paper packs, and any accessories/embellishments they want to add, and we all create the same 2-page spread using the papers each have chosen. Our first workshop is this Friday, and I am so excited to see all the different variations each girl will make! For this layout, I used the CTMH Wings Kit. The top page is a 12x12 layout that I left empty. This second layout is a 9x9 that I added pictures to.

I'll have to update you all of how the workshop turns out. I'm going to try to take pictures of the different layouts, but the workshop is in the evening so lighting may be an issue. We'll see how it goes. Thanks so much for stopping by!

Fallen Off The Face of the Earth

So, no, I have not fallen off the face of the earth, but it sure might have felt like it. I'm not even going to try to give you a ton of excuses. Let's just say, "Something had to give!". Anyhow, I'm glad to be back, and am looking forward to posting more. Mostly, though, I am looking forward to visiting some of my favorite blogs!

Here's a card I made awhile back for my niece using some of CTMH's new products from the Spring/Summer catalog. I always love getting new stuff to spark new creativity & inspiration!

I also thought I'd let you know that I haven't taken a break from crafting, just blogging. I've been busy making lots of fun scrapbook pages, cards and some home decor items. Below is a photo of one of the home decorating projects I've been up to.

I had these boring beige armless chairs for some time now, and I felt like it was about time to give them a facelift. I decided to sew some slip covers for them, which, by the way, was my first time sewing slipcovers. I couldn't believe how nicely they fit my chairs, and I am so pleased with the new life they were given. I also sewed some pillows to coordinate. I cut out some flowers from some fabric & appliqued them onto some white linen. I loved how they turned out. These chairs (2 of them) sit on either side of our tv cabinet and are pulled into the seating area if & when they are needed. Most of the time, though, they just sit there looking pretty.

Anyhow, glad to be back, and thanks so much for stopping by today!
