I am so proud of my new cards. I used my gorjuss girl them.......crocheted some flowers out of my new metallic thread, and used the 3-d decoupage technique. I think they turned out so pretty. Right now, these are listed on ebay, and I'm in the process of making some more with a variety of stamps. Stay tuned.........

I'm also proud that I figured out how to add images. It's as easy as using the "add images" button. Who knew????

I am so happy. My metallic crochet thread came today and the flowers that I have made are awesome. I'll have to figure out a way to post a picture of the flowers here. In the meantime, I am crocheting away. There are eight colors and I'd like to get at least two of each color done.

My last day this week. I am so happy!! Only thirteen more hours and I'll have the weekend off. I think I can make it. My house desperately needs cleaning, I need to list some more things on ebay, and I have some images that are calling my name to be colored. I'm also expecting some metallic crochet thread for making some more flowers. I'm really anxious to get that because I think the flowers will be awesome. Did you notice the flowers on the magnolia card to the right?

Well, here we go again. another week, another dollar seventy-five. I'm working four days in a row this week. For those of you who regularly work five days in a row, I'm working one eight hour and three twelve hour shifts. and I'm old. So I will definitely be ready for a weekend off. If you're interested, check out chelsea's blog, Crafting Life's Pieces. I used 3d decoupage with one of her stamps and she posted the card. That is the highest compliment.

My newest passion

is 3d decoupage. Couple that with a magnolia image, and you have my newest card. Unfortunately, the photos do not show the 3d-ness of the card, but I can see it, so it's all good.

Oh, my, I am so glad to have some days off. It seems as if I have been working forever. Twelve hour shifts are killing me. Now I need some motivation to clean my house. It doesn't seem to be coming but I'll give it a few more hours. I really think I could be much more creative in a tidy space, but I haven't had a chance to prove that. I received two of Chelsea's Gurly Girl stamps and am having so much fun coloring. This really takes me back to my childhood. Love the stamps, chel!! Well, I'm off to seek motivation.....

Wow, this interior decorating of a blog is very hard. I thought I needed to do some work on my blog, so I'm trying to change some things. I followed the directions, I think, but it's not working. Go figure. Ok, so back to square one. I am determined to do this, but I better step away from the computer and get something tangible accomplished today. Cleaning toilets comes to mind.....but, nah, I think I should probably color some more gorguss girls.
