When Life Gets Too Busy...

We forget to make time for the things that mean the most to us.  Crafting was important to me, and it was good for me!  A stress reliever and a creative outlet that often resulted in giving handmade items that made others feel great.  I miss that.  But like all things in life, situations change and we grow and evolve and sonetimes (if we're really lucky), the things we love come full circle 😊

As I wrap up a 20yr career in the banking industry - due to Corporate restructuring - I am finding myself with more time and as such I plan to get back to what makes me happiest!  Family, Friends and Crafting!

Great Sport Cards!

It's not very often that try to re-create something from the catalogue exactly as is.  I mean, I usually encourage 'others' to do it but I guess with me I usually start out trying to copy something and somewhere along the line I end up getting inspiration to venture off in a unique direction.  I guess I didn't realize how rarely I attempt a project from the catalogue from beginning to end - until now!

Over the weekend while preparing for my Great Sport Class, I challenged myself to create the exact sample posted on Page 53 of the Idea Book & Catalogue and I have to admit... it was SO MUCH FUN!  The projects in the catalogue can sometimes be a little more complicated than my normal style but step-by-step and with a little help from a crafty friend (Thanks Wheels) I managed to do it!

Here's the boy's birthday card we'll be making on Thursday October 3rd 2013.

And here's the girl's sporty birthday card we'll be making.  The middle can be replaced with football, soccer, baseball or a basketball!  Register early to secure your spot!!
