No Time For Creativity Today?

Well, today I "just don't have the time". So, in order to send my daughter a Halloween card at her dorm, I am recycling. I receive a hand-stamped card each and every holiday from a dear friend who used to be my next-door-neighbor. I'm sure she won't mind (will you Christine?) that I am recycling her Halloween card by adhering it to the front of a regular white card. Now, I can open the card and add my own message to my daughter.
Hey, Christine, if you want me to remove this I will, but kudos to you for a FANTASTIC job on the Halloween card!!!  She's used embossing, stamping, and punches to create this fun holiday masterpiece!  :o)

Well, guess that New Years Resolution was a TOTAL bust!!

Yeah, right... "To Blog More Often". WTH was I thinking? HA! It's been 10 months!!! So I really do want to get back into the swing of blogging. There have been a lot of projects and a lot happening. Guess that's why I let my blog take the back seat (actually riding on the roof.... didn't even get the back seat).

Have a new camera that I adore and I'm trying to learn all the ins and outs of it's features. (See photos above)

Here are some latest projects:

Album I made for my bestest friend about her dog Lucia (She calls her Lucia Tuna....long story).

Spider Cup Cake Picks

Jack O Lantern Cup Cake Picks

Owl Party Goody Bags
Ladybug Party Goody Bags

So, now I have "blogged". I will have more to say the next few days with an organized project and thoughts. ROFLMAO

Resolution - To Blog More Consistently

Oh man! To try to not allow the beautiful, sunny, warm weather here in Cincinnati Ohio get me "down", I've committed myself to some sewing projects and decorating projects around the house.
(Note: I am being sarcastic )
By "committed" I mean I have already purchased materials, so I certainly can't back out at this point. And I don't have the excuse of "it's a beautiful day; why be inside when I can be outside and enjoy the sun!" - NOT!  It has raised above freezing here today, so I suppose that's something.

First project: Get Cornice Boards and side drapes installed in Master Bedroom.
This is a monsterous project when working with 30 to 40 pound wooden cornice boards. And when you are only one person with two arms. There are now too many holes in the walls from my errors; but at least they are hidden! LOL No one will know until the cornice boards and drapes come down..... except you of course!

Now, check out the light window versus dark window....that tells you that this project of installation took MANY HOURS!  Ah well.  Done!
Now on to Next Project: the Master Bathroom Windows and shower. I'm making two window treatments and a shower curtain with valence. I'm eventually going to have a frameless shower door installed but with some recent expenses, that's on hold for a short while.  Wish me luck! I will post my results here!
