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.
