I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. With my dh in Utah for the next week I promised myself that I would spend more time in my craft room. My dear niece, Ali, turned 15 so I made her a shadow box. She loves her puppy Hershey, so included a photo of the two of them. She's also a bit of a fashionista so I used my cricut to cut out some models from the Forever Young cartridge.
I also wanted to take a look at my latest Easter card. I wasn't happy with some of the papers I chose, so I switched a few things around. This is my third revision of this card. I also did a bit of researching on decorative pins. I wasn't sure if crafters made their pins - or bought them. So I went to my neighborhood Hobby Lobby (who had all of their glass beads on sale 50% off), so I figured I'd take a shot at making a few. It was very relaxing to make and I think they turned out pretty nice. I added a pink and yellow one to my latest Easter card. I have two more Easter cards to make, so I hope to have them done in time to mail to my two Aunts.
Shadowbox and card for my niece.
Enjoy your week!

What a beautiful Sunday. The first time in the 60 s in a long time. After a few hours outside, I figure I should be a bit productive so I cleaned my craft room. Like many other crafters, my craft room is always a bit messy, but I thought I'd take a photo of it so I remember it when is finally cleaned. I mentioned on a few sites that we were in the process of remodeling our basement - which actually started because I wanted a place to do my crafting. I still would like some shelving or photos, but here is what it looks like now - and I had to add a pic of my dog, Wrigley, who is always at my feet when I'm in my craft room.

Although it's probably not true, I feel like I'm the last to start a blog. Three months ago I was in my cold dungeon of a basement. Cement walls and naked floors - being covered in a blanket, my UGGs and had a heater blowing my way. Things had to change if I was going to use the basement thru the winter. I convinced my husband that we should finish the basement - but I had to let him have a poker and theatre room. After 3 long months of construction, I finally have a dream craft room. I'd post a photo, but (like probably most crafters) it's a bit messy. I love watching videos from Gina K and I love reading other crafters blogs and see their photos. I hope you enjoy reading my blog.
