Life is what you make it

Well the house is just about done. I have a couple of arrends to run. Then it is off to Orlando and have some sister time. My youngest sister flies in tomorrow morning. Tonight I get to go to my nieces volleyball game.

I have received 3 days of fun mail in the last 2 weeks! Love fun mail. I participated in several swaps in the last couple of months and they have arrived. 

The first swap was an altered scrabble tile and here is a picture of all the awesome creative work.
Also going on was a Time ATC swap and a Treasure themed ATC swap. Here are the results of that creative work.

Then last but not least, I was in a Secret Sister Altered Tin swap.  We each were assigned a secret sister and were to design a tin for her and fill it with fun crafting goodies. My tin is the one in the slide show with the red roses. But this is the Tin I received from my Secret sister Sherri! It is totally awesome and filled with all sorts of stuff just waiting and wanting to be all inked up. It was a great ending to a very stressful day!

 This is the top view

The ever fun and yummy contents of my tin.  Thank you so much Sherri!

Now it is off to a wonderful weekend of good food, crafting, and hanging out with my sisters.  See ya Sunday.

Ideas to paper

I had a crafting idea last night before I went to bed. I did not write it down! I usually do so I dont forget and now I cant remember all of it. I'm going to try to remember and bring the supplies I need with me to my sister's this weekend. My sister is coming in from Alabama and we are staying with my middle sister in Orlando and having a sister weekend... crafting and scrapping are on the schedule. :D Im thinking flowers, Glimmer Mists were in the creative thought but what did I do to them that was new to me??? Were they paper, fabric or otherwise? That is the question... hhhmmmmmm it is gonna drive me crazy... LOL

Photographing and Submission day

Well here I go. I am submitting to Tattered Angels Design Team today. I had a blast making the projects and working with their materials but then again I always was an inky sorta girl.

The slide show is some more older art creations that I am making available for the folks at Tattered Angels to review.

What a good day today. I got a few things done for acharmingplace. The last challenge for September is posted. I also completed all 5 projects for Tattered Angels Design Team submission. Tomorrow morning I will take my photos and finish up a few details before submitting my entry.

Getting Started again

Well I have applied to the Tattered Angels Design Team and they like you to blog, so here I go again. :D These are some scrapbook pages, circle Journal pages and cards that I made a few years ago.
