Sorry, I have been absent lately...so much has happened in the past couple of weeks. We have purchased a new home and are now in the process of selling this one. And I'm sure those of you who have sold/purchased a house, know what a daunting task it is! I am usually pretty easy going and always trying to think positive, but all of this has drove me crazy! While, it is a great time for us, and we are very happy, it is also very stressful! Always keeping the house sparkling clean, just in case, a prospective buyer may stop by! Not easy when you have an active 3 yr old running around and moving boxes everywhere! But none the less, we are truly blessed and happy! But here is the sad news, I have had to resign from all my design teams, temporarily! It was a very hard decision for me to make! I have worked so hard to get where I was and to have to resign was not easy. But like I said, it will only be temporary. I just couldn't do it all. It was getting too overwhelming not to mention I have had to pack up most of my supplies. But I will be back!
I will still post things on here, in between the move and I will let you all know how we are progressing. I have enjoyed posting here and reading all your sweet comments and I couldn't stay away from you all for long. So I will still be around here when I can. I still have one last project I have to do for Shimmerz Paints! There will be a release of some new colors on the 21st! Can anyone say Vintage!! Oh yeah! I also may have one last giveaway before I move. So stay tuned for that! :)
Before I leave you today, I just want to show you a couple of projects I made for the June Dirty Dozen gallery over at SCS. The theme was called "In the Beginning" So we could do something for a new baby, new home, new car, etc. My FAVORITE theme!!
This is a Godiva Chocolate box that I altered to give as a little welcome gift to a new neighbor. It uses some Clear Dollar and Lizzie Anne stamps, a wooden birdhouse, Shimmerz Paints and some papers by Pink Paislee, Basic Grey and October Afternoon.
This card was made using a stamp by Magenta, simply called Baby Carriage. Isn't it precious? I love that stamp!
And finally, this button tree. I think it would be a perfect centerpiece for a baby shower. I would also make a fun game. Can you guess how many buttons were used to make this??!
I will be back shortly, with a few more things from this fun theme. You all are the BEST! Thank you so much for all your support, sweet comments and friendship! I cherish every one of you! ;)
