Well, it feels like that for me. Life has been a constant buzz for me, life has been on a wheel that just keeps going. Good news though for those that don't mind reading. In January I was given the opportunity to be a guest designer for Crafty Secret
s :) They have a wonderful owner and great Design team and great products, so give them a try. At that point life started a new upswing, first a new position at work, then starting a long drawn out process of fixing my house to be put on the market. I was pushing for April 15th but alas, many fixes and surprises later it was on the market April 29th.
Luckily I lived in a great place, very desired school district, my house backed up to a green belt and I got an offer in 4 days after 54 people viewed my home. In fact I could not be home that weekend at all, there were sooo many visits, the realtor said it was a circus and cars parked up and down the street on both sides. So, I took the offer on 3rd of May and they wanted to take possession on the 29th of the same month. WOW, so I prepared to move out May 25th. Long , Long Long day no other words for it. I am temporarily staying with my soon to be fiance until August. However, the excitement is never ending. We are putting his house on the market this week. Painting, painting and more painting that would be my word for 2013 LOL I love painting, anyone that knows me would say that, but I am sooo over white and bistro white :)
So, in all of this my crafting supplies were put aside then packed into a storage locker. I am in longing for my things. I miss them :( I miss the crafting, scrapbooking community and I miss sharing. In the midst of all of this I have been researching and preparing for my new adventure in the design world and planning my steps and looking forward to jumping back in.
See you all on the flip side of 2 months, I will be back (did I mention I have 2 storage lockers and 1 is primarily scrapbooking/crafting tools and supplies ) LOL oh yeah baby I am going to have to get creative with organizing in my new space.
Keep up the creating :)
Yesterday, the Crafty Secrets blog
was updated with wonderful new Valentine downloads she has put in the store! Very cute, and I must say having a download or CD is so nice. I never use up my favorite images :)
Under the new items is a 4 x 6 photo that I designed using 3 CD's Typography, Patterns and Illustrations. Some carry little pocket albums and this is perfect. I can print myself, send to Snapfish or Walgreens and give to those that have these little purse albums. Also, I made a mini shadow box layout, using the Typography and Patterns CD again, supplies are show. However, I will post both projects here as well.
Thanks for stopping by. :)
I created this framed fabric project for my guest designer position for Crafty Secrets
this month. I used freezer paper cut to 8.5 x 11 and pressed the fabric to the shinier side of the freezer paper, trimmed to 8.5 x 11 and put in printer. I used the Creating with Vintage Typography CD
for the butterflies.
I choose the image I wanted and printed it, then I printed it again on plain cream colored paper. From there it was simple embroidered stitches nothing complicated and stitched on some beads and glued on others. Added some bling and then dressed up the paper butterflies, bent the wings and put them on dimensional adhesive foam. Be sure to check out the Crafty Secrets blog
for more great projects by the DT.
Be watching for my next project, super cute :) Thanks for looking
