New Beginnings in Crafting


Hello my dear sweet friends -

Hope you are having a glorious day!! I am sitting here at the kitchen table with a fantastic refreshing breeze coming through the open windows.  It's like heaven on earth!!

Several months ago a dear friend sent me a gift card for my birthday and I just haven't had the opportunity to use it until now.  Most of my craft supplies are divided between California and Oregon and I don't have a lot here with me yet. Since I am in the creative mode I figured I needed to do a little shopping and see what I could come up with and the photo below shows what I bought with my gift card.  Ironically I am so use to being surrounded by all my craft supplies and at times was a little overwhelmed because there were so many choices.  

And now I am excited because I don't have so many choices and I will be able to really stretch my creative muscle to see what I can come up with.  I do have digi images on my computer (thank goodness) as well as my copic markers.  Ideas are starting to buzz through my brain and hopefully I will be able to make my first new project post by early next week.  I am also going to start making changes to the look of my blog - new beginnings equals a new blog look.  

Thanks for stopping by and its time to do some blog visiting and see what you have been up to.

Hugs always

Laine

  4. Good for you Laine! Sometimes I travel with a limited amount of supplies and always create art I never would have if I had all my things. Enjoy your new supplies. I cannot wait to see what you make! Take care.

  5. Those look like pretty great choices, Laine! Papers and double stick tape would be my first choices, too. Well, maybe some ribbon (but then I have tons of it and always think I can't live without more of it.) :-D I should share with you! Hugs.

Cinderella goes Camo

Hello my dear sweet friends -

I hope this finds you doing well.  It's been a while since I have been able to post and yet I have been able to get quite a few loose ends tied up.  I ended up making a quick trip to California to get the rest of personal stuff out of storage.  I am no longer scattered across three states and I can't even begin to express how wonderful that feels.  It will take me some time to get all my craft stuff set up and organized again but it looks like I will be able to really get on the ground running again.  It was a group effort and my sisters and brother in law were amazing and so incredibly helpful.  

A few days before the trip I received a phone call (out of the blue) from a dear friend I worked with at the Police Department in California 20 years ago.  It was great hearing from him and we have been having fun getting caught up on things. My my, so many new and exciting changes.  I am still working on getting my health back on track and doctors say I a…

Orchis Last Enchanter - Morgan's Art World

Happy Monday Sweet Friends
My goodness it's the final day of October and this year is almost over.  Time passes way to quickly.
Today I am sharing my Design Team Card for the Classic Design Team Challenge that is now underway through November 27th.  Our sponsor this month is the talented artist Morgan Fitzsimmon owner of Morgan's Art World on Facebook.

The image I am using is called "Orchis Last Enchanter."  I think she's a gorgeous image and to be quite honest I was intimidated to color her.  I desperately wanted to do her justice.  It took several attempts at coloring her before I was pretty happy with the results.  She's really a great image to work with and she's actually one of my most favorite digi's.   I made some flowers with one of my flower die cuts.  I absolutely love these flowers and will be making many more in the future.

Here is the link to Morgan's Facebook Group:
