Winner of CreateForLess Free Stuff Friday

Hey everyone... you know, when you leave a comment on someone's blog or a company's blog to win a prize, you never think (or least I never do) that you will win. I never win anything and since I've started this blog, this is the second time I've won something! I'm so excited I can hardly stand myself!! The picture to the right is what I won. Yes... I won all three of those Spellbinders,not just one! I can't believe it! Here is the link to the company blog with a description of the prize and question I answered: http://thinkcrafts.com/blog/2011/03/21/winners-63/. I'm really excited because a couple of weeks ago I realized that I really really really needed to get the petite ovals. That extra 1/8" makes all the difference when cutting/layering my images. CreateForLess website to make purchases is located here: http://www.createforless.com/.

HUGE thanks to the gang at CreateForLess for giving us all the opportunity to win!!

Til the next time...

Perpetual Calendar & Monthly Ornament

Hey all... thought I would share another little something non-card related, but definitely craft related, that sits on top of a little cabinet next to the front door. A few years ago I took a class where we made perpetual calendar inserts for a square glass plate. It stays on the glass with 2 small circular magnets by Basic Grey, which you at ACMoore. They are thinner than the magnets you would get otherwise. There are about 13 or 14 inserts for the plate. This year, at some point, I would like to make a whole new set using the Stick Chicks from American Artstamps. We'll see how that goes because that was my plan for last year! lol Anyway, in the shadow box is a St. Patrick's Day themed quilted ball. I made these at Christmastime for gifts and decided to make a "perpetual" quilted ball for each month of the year to kind of go along with my calendar insert. Haven't even started the one for April, but I know it will be an Easter style made with pastels. I see it in my head, it's just a matter of gettin' busy! I'll make sure that each month, whether or not I've made an ornament, I'll share what's on my cabinet.

One day, when I'm not so stressed about getting *everything* done, I'll take pictures of the cabinet to show. I painted it over 10 years ago. I love it! It's shabby chique style.

Til the next time...
