This weekend I spent some time with friends at the locally owned scrapbook store Eclectica, it was their monthly crop and I was able to work on my 50 card order. I decided to work on the birthday cards, came up with a design and created that design in both girl colors and boy colors. I love how these cards turned out, they're so festive; I definitely need to add those to my shop later on. I have other cards as well but I need to take photo's of those, I'll add those soon though.


Floral Wood Cross and a Card

I received an order recently for an item I actually hadn't done in many years, my floral wooden crosses. I had originally found the wood crosses at Michael's, painted them and embellished them with colorful quilled flowers, and actually had them on my list of projects to do this year so it was just fate when I received an order for one. Here is the finished piece, it's so colorful and is just so pretty in person. I hope she's thrilled with it.

The card was created for a close friend/coworker who is leaving us. She's still working for the same company, just transferring out of state, we'll miss her although I know we'll still be seeing her from time to time.


Cards, cards, and more cards

A couple weeks ago I was thinking that perhaps I would take a break from making cards, and the next day on Etsy I received a convo from a woman who wanted to see if I could do a large card order; how funny is that. Since deciding I should take a break from making cards I've received her order for 50 cards, a coworker needed 3 cards made as thank you's and another coworker needed a custom birthday card; so needless to say I'm making cards, lots of cards.

Bouquet of Red Roses

A coworker of mine asked if I could make a rose with a stem for Valentine's Day for her sweetie, who does not like real roses because they die. I knew I had purchased a pack of floral stems quite some time ago but it was a matter of finding them, I found them; and created one red rose. I was thinking I could make a vase with 6 roses, she thought that was a great idea. I sketched how I thought I would make the vase, and fortunately it turned out like I wanted. It measures about 3 1/4" tall, the vase is 1 3/4" tall. These would make a cute, unique birthday or anniversary gift as well, off to add it to my Etsy shop.

Things are starting to pick up, I have two custom card orders to work on next. One is for 50 cards, that should keep me busy for the next month and a half. I'll post those cards as I go.
