Most of this week has been spent tying up loose ends and finishing up a few projects. I worked on some more tags to try and refine my paper crafting skills. I have to say I am a bit intimidated by all these great crafters. Paper crafting is not new to me, I have been doing it for years, but I joined the digital world for brief time and things changed overnight it seems. Everyone seems so advanced I feel like I need to pick up the pace. Oh boy I feel old.
After scanning in some of my patterns, I went to work adding more than just paper. Stitching the buttons on and adding a snap for the flower on the cap was my first step outside the box.
My first Valentine! This time I went even bolder...some vintage sheet music, book pages, millinery, sequence, snaps, rick rack, and glitter. I struggled all day with this one. Just not easy for me to combine things in my mind. I can't seem to get past this crafting block.
Back to my comfort zone...too cute little silverware drawer. Except I haven't figured out what to do with it. I like it, but not with these tools in it. Great, back to my crafting block.
I finished the great little shelf I found last week. I am loving the new yellow color. My little enamel containers fit great. I will be looking for some more. Sadly, there are some great sales tomorrow and we are currently in the middle of a 10 inch snow storm. They have already canceled school. Looks like my luck isn't turning around anytime soon...bummer.
