Recipe Swap




Well today I finished up 2 recipes for a swap that I am in. Also fixed some jewelry for a co-worker. Also working on curtains for my nephew's family. I am anxious to get started with my cricut but kind of intimidated and don't know where to start. Maybe tomorrow I can try a few things.

Scarf


I had 30 minutes before Dancing with the Stars so I made this scarf for Marsha's dog to wear to doggie school. Rock really liked it.

Christmas Card




Well this is my first Christmas card. Silver embossing on silver paper. The bottom doesn't show up but it is a strip of velvet paper. I think the embossing would of shown up better on a blue card stock. Have to try that next.

Day 1 of blog






So I thought I would start a blog with all the projects I work on. Kind of a scrapbook online of all my projects. The first picture is a necklace and bracelet I made to go with a jacket I bought at Coldwater Creek. Next are 2 cards that I am going to need this week. Then I made 2 recipes cards (6 each) for a recipe swap that I am in through Splitcoaststampers. I send in 6 recipes and I get 5 different recipes back (One goes to hostess). Fun and I get alot of recipes back. Now I am off to fix dinner. We will see if I keep it up.
