Catching Up!

I thought I would stop in and keep my blog updated. I have been so proud of myself for keeping up with it! So I thought I would show you what I have been working on. Not too much to actually show. Been dealing with real life and getting ready for Easter. Planning on cooking Easter dinner for family and a few friends. I am going to do the "toned down" version that I have done the last few years due to my fibrogarbage. That means I just don't cook as many dishes that are a lot of trouble.

Besides that, I have written a few articles for the Memories from the Attic newsletter which Jaime is putting together. It is a job that she volunteers to do every month. I always feel guilty cause she works so hard, and i'm sure I don't make her job any easier by getting in my articles at the last minute! I always promise to do better!

Speaking of MFTA, I always did one more card from the March Card Kit. I used staples in this card, something I don't usually do. Everything else is from the kit except I used my own Copics and Prisma colored pencils with GooGone to color in the birdie, vellum, a flower and brad from my stash, and I used a sentiment stamp from Unity. I used a Paper Shaper punch from EK Success for the scallop shapes. I really love those punches. I also love this March Kit from the Attic! Of course, I am a heat embossing junkie, and my new fav item is the embossing pen in the kit!

I am also been working on my ETSY Store to post a few new items. I have made some new flowers that I sell unders supplies, but the main focus on our store right now is that we are adding digital collages or digital stamps (whichever you prefer to call them) that Sam has drawn. If you have visited my store, you know that Sam is my partner in crime, so to speak! He is the true artist. So it suddenly dawned on me that digital images are becoming especially popular right now (I'm sure the economy has a lot to do with that. After all, you can use the digital images over and over!), and that I should be using Sam's artistic talents for this. We are also going to add vintage photos and things of that nature. Here is an example of one of Sam's collage sheets. This one is household items.

These print on an 8.5 by 11 inch sheet. Done at 300 DPI so that you can print them crisp and clear even if you resize them. I love the cute little faces. We are doing custom pages or will even do one item of our choice. Sam can draw anything in no time!
Please have a look and let us know what you think! If the link doesn't work, the url is Sam needs encouragement girls! I think I need to post a pic of Sam looking sad, waiting for a comment! rofl I really will do this soon! Thanks for looking! I appreciate comments here also!
