Project Life Week 28 - 31

Week 28:  This was a very uneventful week as far as pictures go, but it was alot of work.  I moved some the cubes around in my craftroom to separate the office/business section and the crafting area.  I really like it better this way.  It does make my crafting section look smaller, but I have some ideas on how to change up that section.  Since my craftroom/office is our former dining room (which was very rarely used), I was able to take the table/chairs out but had to keep the china cabinet.  So seeing that we didn't use the china, I boxed it up and put all my items that I sale on etsy in it.  I love the way it worked out.  The cubes on the office side were cleaned out  and all office supplies are now stored there.

Week 29:  For this week I worked on completing my Baby Storage Box with Mini Album.  I had fun making this.  Being that I have only sons, I got a chance to really play with this one.  I really like how the booties came out.  Also that week at work I had to go with my client to an appointment at Cleveland Clinic and had these really strange computerized devices.  I had to take a picture of them.  My son said that there were probably magnets in the ground that they run on.  I could not believe how many there were.  They were taking supplies and trash up and down the halls.  They even went around corners.  My son said that they look like the things from Star Wars.

Week 30:  This was a real fun week.  My niece graduated high school this past June and my brother and his wife gave her a party.  It was alot of fun. There were some people I have not seen in years there.  I won a gift on a blog post from Veronica Chambers at inkallusions.blogspot.com.  I have entered but have never won, I was so excited to see my name on her blog, I had to ask her if it was me.  She even added some extra goodies.  Also this week I received my first "Happy Mail" from a member on one of my Facebook groups.  I felt like a kid at Christmas.

Week 31:  This was another great week for me.  My first RAK (Random Act of Kindness) from a Youtube subscriber, "stampingsongbird" .  WOW!!!!! was I excited to to get her lovely gifts.  She sent so very much and everything that I could use,  I wanted to include the lovely card she sent also.  This weekend was also Italian fest downtown and I had to go to get their Elephant Ears.  I have not been in several years and this time there was a small fee to get in, they stamped our hands with a Smiley face.  We brought the ears home to share with the boys.  I liked the powdered sugar ones the best.

Now on to the last few weeks.  I can't believe that I have kept up with it this far but it is so easy.

Happy Mail Card

This is a card thast I made to send out in a "Happy Mail" package to someone in a Facebook group that I am apart of.  It is a digital image from Tiddly Inks Acrylic and Didital Stamps.  It is a 3 part image.  You get the little girl, the mail box and the bird.  I colored the inages with my copic markers.  The girl was cut with a Spellbinders die and the mail box was cut completely out then pop dots applied to bump it out.  The papers were just scrap pieces.  All I did was add ribbon and some bling.  The mail bix just said "Mail", I added the "Happy".   I have not colored in awhile, it was fun.

Marthe Stewart Circle Edge Punch

I wanted to share with you a new toy that I recently purchased. I have come to find that I so love doilies. I love to use them on everything from cards to my Smash book. This tool it so easy to use and makes such beautiful doilies. Now I can make them in any color and just about any size, With this tool you can make them from 6" to 12". I have made them out of scrapbooking paper, solid cardstock and printed cardstock. I have the punch that came with the starter kit plus another one. I can't wait to get more. Have fun and I hope you enjoy the video.
