Summer Fun with The Twinery!

Hello friends and welcome to the Caribbean Twine blog hop with The Twinery!  If you've arrived here from Anita's blog, you're in the right spot.  If not, head over to The Twinery blog to get started!Today we're spotlighting the cool hue of Caribbean waters with both solid and striped twine!  Aren't these colors gorgeous?!  I remember my beach vacations when I think of waters in these colors!   

I decided to make a couple of gift tags for my projects.  I just love tags, particularly "any occasion" tags as they jazz up so many types of gifts.  For my first tag, I started off with a large format tag, approximately 6x3", layered some pool patterned paper, some sequin "waves" and some fun embellishments.  I finished the tag off with a tassel of solid Caribbean twine.
My second project is a smaller-scale tag, approximately 4.5x2" and features some chipboard kites floating along on twine tails.  The tag is finished with a tassel of striped Caribbean twine.

Thank you so much for visiting today!  Off you go to Tobi's blog for more Caribbean twine goodness!

Hello Again!

Hello, friends!  I know it has been a long time since my last post and I am sorry for that!  Other than saying life really changed after I had Amelia, I don't have a lot of reasons.  Before I get chatting, I wanted to let you know that The Twinery DT is getting underway again for 2015 after a bit of a hiatus, and I'm up on the blog today.  Check it out!

As for me, Amelia turned 20 months yesterday and I can hardly believe it!  She's a happy, vibrant, toddler who loves to read, to "wah hah" (wash hands), and her little granola bars - "mo cookie peas mommy."  It is definitely difficult to work full time, spend enough time with A, and have time for things I like/want to do during the week and that is why you haven't seen much of me crafting lately.  It really has dropped to the "when I have time" and I really just haven't found much.  In addition to all of that, I was promoted at work last fall and am managing a team which has required some long days.  No excuses, just my new reality.

Anyway, I hope you have a great day and I really do hope I'll see you out here again in the coming days!  Oh, before I go...  here's a photo of Amelia in her Easter finery...

Valentines 5 for 5 - Day 5!

Hello friends and welcome to the Valentines 5 for 5 blog event!  What a wonderful week of Valentine goodness!  Thank you all for visiting and a big thanks to Donna and Rachel for pulling this together!    The final theme is collage and I have another card to share.
I have a hard time identifying with any particular style for my crafting but collage is definitely one of my favorites.  It has been a long time since I've worked with my collage supplies and can't wait to start getting my ephemera together!  For this card, I layered a panel of brown cardstock on a pink card base and then layered a number of elements on top - some film strip "ribbon", a postage stamp, some stickers and a card stock arrow and a vellum heart with a fun sticker on top.  This one will be good to give the hubby for Valentine's Day!

Thanks so much for visiting throughout this week!  I sure had a lot of fun with these projects!

Valentines 5 for 5 - Day 4!

Hello friends and welcome to the Valentines 5 for 5 blog event!  Thanks to Donna and Rachel, we're back together for five days of Valentine inspiration!  Today's theme is arrows and I made a little tag to share.  As I've mentioned this week, I'm in the middle of a craft room remodel and it is just chaos.  It's a great challenge to see what is handy and what I can use to pull off some new projects!
To be honest, I was stumped by the arrows and very limited to supplies I could find.  I've had this sentiment stamp sitting on my desk for a while and I just love it so it was the first thing I picked out.  I decided to make a tag and had some pink paper that I used to make a background panel.  Now was the tough part but I realized I had some of the Kiss Kiss collection from Crate that just came in the mail (papers aren't here yet but I can't wait to get them) and I was able to pull in some arrows and a few chipboard hearts.  *phew*  Have I mentioned I can't wait to get my office back in some semblance of order?

Thanks so much for visiting today we'll see you back tomorrow for another theme day!  Please be sure to check out the other 4 ladies making of this wonderful group!
