Good Wednesday all my crafty friends!!! It's time to share our creativity over on Julia's blog!! Sharing is caring after all!!! LOL I hope you all had a great rest of last week and had some crafty fun!
This will be a short quick post this week. I have a 1/2 day at work as I have to go to see my Radiologist today!! It's about an hour's drive away, which always gives one time to reflect on the way! We all need that time to reflect from time to time, don't we!! The BEST thing about going to those appointments is that it gives me the opportunity to go to my FAVE big box hobby store!!! Yay me!!! Hey, you have to see the silver lining in every cloud!!!! LOL The town I live in is small and we really don't have any crafty shops to buy goodies from, so when I do make the drive out of town I hit that store FOR SURE!! I need goodies to aid in finishing my "Project Christmas!" Look out hobby store! LOL
So, what's on my desk today?? A few finished pieces and a "sneak peek" of my "Project Christmas" going on. So you recall last week I shared that I made a new friend out of the International ATC Swap Group over on Instagram that I am involved in and she asked if I wanted to swap with her because I really liked a group of ATC's that she had made, and of course, I DID!!! So I got her ATC's off just in a timely manner and wanted to show what I sent her and what she sent me!! She asked for something Halloween or Animal, so I thought I would combine them! LOL I had loads of fun doing the "Halloween" theme! You can check my new friend out over on Instagram at Juliasartcards!
|ATC's for Julia!!|
I received Julia's trade card yesterday in the mail!! I love "owls" and she did some fabulous ones that I saw and commented about on her page and so she wanted to trade one!! I love it!!! Great colors and he is sooooooo cute!! Thanks so much Julia!!!
|Cutest owl EVER!!!|
So, what else is on the desk? Well, if you take a look at the picture above, you get a "sneak peek" of my "Project Christmas!" I am working fast and furious on those guys! I want to get them done, so that I can focus on other projects and feel good that my gifts are made!! LOL I will definitely show some finished product for you guys!!
Lastly, I will show another finished piece that I had shared the beginnings of in another recent post. If you will remember, I noted that this one, I will be keeping ALL FOR ME! LOL I think it turned out pretty good or at least how I had imagined it in my mind. I will be framing it for my wall. I wish that I was tech/computer/camera/video savvy because I never can capture a sense of what the true colors are in some of my crafts. This piece, I used my Schmincke watercolor palette as well as my amazing Finetec Artist Mica Watercolors!! I coveted those guys for so long and FINALLY got them for myself last Christmas! I love them!! They are so rich and creamy and full of mica shimmers, which you can't see in this photo! But it was loads of fun to do!
Well guys, that's it for me today! I hope to get around to everyone today, but it will be a quick morning before I get on the road and not sure if I will have the time. I'll at least try to troll your pages, but may not be able to comment!
Here's hoping your rest of the week is EXTREMELY BLESSED!
