I love Fridays, can you tell? This past weekend we put a coat of varnish on the top of the craft station my husband made for me last Christmas. I had to move everything off the top. What a mess, sort of. When I went to put it all back together I repositioned things. I also purged a lot of stuff. I have also started making cards out of the scraps of pattered paper I have. I am giving myself a week and anything not used in that time will be let go. If you are like me, you know how hard this will be. You always say I can use this or that, then the pile just keeps getting bigger and bigger, well you know. So I have to be strong. I did make some nice cards here are a few of them...
Not the best pictures of the cards, but you get the idea. I was just grabbing scraps from the box and putting them together.., does it look like it? I find the hardest part of all this is putting the right colors together. The colors are not very bright in the pictures but the first one has muted browns, greens and pinks. The other two are made with vintage looking paper bags, scrap patterned paper and scrap card stock.Also used was piece of lace, ribbon, a flower and a cut out dress form from forever young cricut cartridge. Any way that's one of my goals for the new year. Have a blessed weekend everyone.

Happy New Year! Today was a wonderful day. It was a lazy day. We went to the Animal Park this morning before it got too crowded and too hot. Then I went for a ride to Temecula. We ended up at a Michael's craft store up there. I had a gift card for $10.00. I bought a bag full of goodies and only paid .30 out of my pocket. I bought two packs of card stock, five stickles, a cute basket and something else. I was so happy when I left the store. What a way to start my new year. I hope everyone had a beautiful first day of the new year. God bless you all.
