Hi there,
I know I have wanted to post something, but we got a surprise visit this week. My SIL came to visit us for the week from Mexico, so of course I could not spend my time on here. My SIL enjoys crafting just as much as myself, so we did work on some projects for her which I do want to show you.

We are both quite happy with the result. Would love to craft with her more often!!

Have a blessed weekend!!

So I have not been able to work on something everyday. But as I said, every day is a new day to start fresh.
This project is for a Rolodex Scripture swap I am in on SCS.
The image is a Thomas Kinkade image from CHF, which I received from a stamping friend through a swap. I absolutely LOVE his painting. It is the first time I used this image as I am a bit intimidated. I colored it using chalks, blender pen and aquapainter. The verse I printed off the computer.
I have another 3 different ones to make. I am looking forward to receive 24 different ones!!

Thank you for coming by!!

You can click on the image to see it better!

Here I go again. My excuse is that I do want to send you over to Tom's blog. He just started his blog not too long ago. It is in German, but his projects are fantastic. So, to participate in his blog candy, all you have to do is link it on your blog. Go check it out HERE.

I want to wish you all a great year. Filled with joy, peace, hope, love and lots of creative mojo!! I know, I know it is Jan. 2nd already. I should have done this yesterday, but I didn't get to it. But I did do this:

I do not really like to make New Year's resolutions as I find that I get discouraged if I don't keep them, but I am actually making some everyday resolutions. In my opinion everyday is a good day to start something or keep something going. So something I am trying to do is to create and work on a project everyday Mon-Fri. So this is my first project. My dd Melanie wanted to make a card for an aunt who is in the hospital, and she picked THE WILD ROSE SU set, which needs the stampamagig. Since I have not used it very much either, we both practiced with it. I have also not used stickles and liquid pearls, so I incorporated these too. I probably will not do it the same way again, but I am satisfied with my first try. The colors I used are: Old Olive as base card; stamped the image with Rose Red on Apricot Appeal. I wanted to use Apricot Appeal with Regal Rose, but my Regal Rose is MISSING. This is not a good thing as it is my favorite pink color. I have looked high and low for it. I must say that my craft space has been moved around several times during the year, so it probably went missing because of this. I must say that now I have my OWN CRAFT ROOM upstairs and I am happy with it. I believe my mojo has come back. I am looking forward to creating again.

Now I have to see what I am going to work on today! Hope to hear from you. Love to read your comments.
