Blog Update!

I've been sick with a cold, and it's been snowing alot lately. 

I've also been feeding the birds outside and there has been so many beautiful birds to see.  Lots, and lots of Cardinals, Mourning Doves, Blue Jays, and  even a Red-Headed Woodpecker amongst hundreds of Tree Sparrows.  I love watching them.  O, and a couple of squirrels too. 

I'm working on a new endeavor, it's an Art Journal.  I've unburied my many art mediums and have started playing with them all in my Art Journal while sitting in my chair, being sick.  It's seems to be my new passion.

I am also completing a February swap mini with Kindred Kreators, I love how it's turning out.  It's really different for me.  I can tell you that Annette found a large "kid" puzzle that we all took 6 pieces from to build the mini on. I can't post it until the swap is over, on January 29th.

Merry Christmas Everyone!!

Homemade Christmas Gifts

I made these sticky pad holders for the ladies where I work.  I hope they like them.

Tags from Staples

Hey Everybody!  I bought these tags plain (manilla colored) from Staples and tried coffee staining them.  They're still a little damp, but I like how they turned out.  I used hot water and lots of instant coffee and it worked really well.  I did the larger tags earlier and just used leftover cold coffee which didn't color them as well.

"Baby, It's Cold Outside!" This is for Marlene.

Marlene is enjoying (or I hope she is) her 80 degree weather, I'm enjoying gas heat in my living room.  Here's the pics you requested Marlene.  I like to feed the birds here at the feeders.  We have lots of Cardinals, Juncos, Tree Sparrows, Cow birds and I even saw a Robin, he must've missed his "flight".   MERRY CHRISTMAS!

We decided we needed a name for our group, or rather, I decided that we did.  So, here it is, whenever I mention Kindred Kreators I'm speaking of Annette, Cyndi, Me, Ruth and Julie.  It just seems easier to mention KK than all of our names.   

Along with our Mini-Album page swap we have decided to start swapping ATC cards.  We'll post those when we have them.  Our first swap date for that is January 29th, of 2010.

Christmas Tag Swap

These are our tags that we made for our December "card" swap.  We chose to do tags instead of cards.  It was alot of fun and the results are amazing.  Thanks everybody!

Christmas Cards

I've been busy making my Christmas cards for this year.  I'll be posting pics soon so you can see them.  It's a very blustery wintery day here.  Can't wait for spring!

This friday is our scrapbooking night and we will be swapping tags and a mini-album page for our "Vintage Christmas" swap.  Check back later to see the results.

Have a wonderfully fruitful day!
