I found this in my draft.





Well, here goes nothing.  And it will be nothing if I don't get it right.  I learned how to load pictures to my computer, yay me, which is step one.  Now, I have to play with adding a picture here.  




Ok, that wasn't as bad as I thought it would be.  These are cards I made for the people we see the Nutcracker with each year.  It some how became our yearly trip of culture.

Looking at these pictures tells me that I need to work on taking pictures or get a new camera.

For the Year 2014...

2013 ended nicely after some major drama that has been going on since the end of summer.  We can now breath a lot better.  Everyone is a lot healthier.  And now for the big surprise….

I won this wonderful prize sponsored by Xyron.





2014...

I will work on this with a lot more effort.  I will learn how to add pictures the soon that fit my post.  I will work on my creations with more heart.  I won't let my health rule me so much (yeah right).

Little Prince Blog Hop

I wanted to get this out as soon as I found out about it.  This Hop is all about making something for little boys.  I don't know about anyone else but, I always have trouble thinking of something for a boy.  Girls seem to be so easy, bright colors and flowers.

Start here: http://homespunelegance.blogspot.com/2013/03/little-prince-blog-hop-day-1-easy.html.  It's a three day Hop for anyone that needs ideas and want to win great prizes.  Everyone is giving away prizes!!  You need to comment by April 5.

Here is a gift I made for one of my doctors.  She had a boy in December and wanted to give something that was not Christmas.  It took me more than a minute to come up with this idea.

Well, it looks like my picture will have to wait.  I can't seem to get to upload.  It's a cute picture frame for a little boy.  Just make sure to stop by the Blog Hop.

Blog Hops

I think everyone should follow blog hops.  Go to your favorite company's blog and just go with the flow.  You'll get introduced to other companies and see wonderful works of art.  They have introduce me to companies that I've never seen in stores but should be.  The ideas for projects can be a little overwhelming but, well worth the ride.

After each hop my list of sites to follow gets even longer.  Some days I feel that I spend all day just looking at sites that I don't work on anything.  Ok, to be honest, it doesn't just feel like that but that is really what my day is like.  I'm a little intimidated about showing my stuff.

I have to just remember the saying: Dance like no one is watching.  That's what I'll do and just get my pictures on my site.  At least my mom will like some of it.  This will be, 'mom's refrigerator door', where I put all my artwork.

Pictures

I have pictures of some of the cards I have already given away.  I don't have any list of materials because I didn't make any at the time.  I never thought I would have a blog in the first place so, live and learn.

I'm a Winner!

I forgot to mention that I have won a few prizes.  They are from some of the sites that I frequent.  They have great products and awesome crafty ideas.

Then next thing.

Today I am trying to add some blinkies to my blog but, it's slow going.  Maybe my skull is a little thick and I'm jut not getting it.  I did manage to get two to stay put.  Yay me!!

I did take take pictures of my first attempts at card making.  Now I have to figure out how to post them here.  First, I have to find them because I saved them to another computer.  Then, I hope I can edit them so they are presentable.  I usually just take pictures of my cats, (when they let me) so I get what I can.
