i have actually been doing fun crafty things for myself! i love teaching, but sometimes i find myself only making class samples and not really taking the time to work on things that are just for fun! this past weekend i set aside a bunch of crafty time for myself and made a whole bunch of stuff i really love! k, i'll stop talking and just share now!
i made this guy using some bunnies leftover from another project that i'll be sharing on the store blog friday. it's just a quickie bright spring card, i blogged the directions and supplies over at the store blog on monday.
nicole snapped this photo of me on our little overnight to london and i pretty much fell in love with how perfectly london-y it feels!
this was a lift of a layout anam did for my minds eye. i almost always am a little stuck when i just get back to scrapbooking, so doing one layout from a lift or sketch usually helps me get comfortable enough to go my own way on the next bunch of layouts. i'm totally in love with the "quite contrary" collection from mme so i loved being able to get a whole bunch of the papers onto the layout without it being too overwhelming. the little girl is a "pure innocence" stamp that i copic-ed & paper pieced to match me.
nicole & i had such a lovely, gorgeous afternoon at the bristol city farm and i love how the pictures turned out. when "garden variety" arrived from cosmo cricket i knew it was a match made to be, haha. usually i don't love anything too theme-y, but i couldn't turn down those adorable veggie dudes! the little grass border is made of sushi grass that i held onto from my bento box dreamer days because i knew it would be perfect for something!
i'm going to try to keep up the crafty momentum this spring! here's to hoping i have lots more to share weekly!
