2 New Cards.

New Cards

Cards for a friend hope he likes them

Ok so 2 new cards these were made for a friend of mine for his mother and his sister. I’m in love with the pink one.  We all know pink is my favorite color plus pinstripe is kind of my thing too.  It was a pretty easy card to make. I finally got to use my All Dressed up stack.  I’ve had it since last year, and because I bought the 4.5×6.5 I was kind of puzzled how I was going to use it aside from just matting pictures.  The little presents were perfect.  This is a great card to do to use up small leftover pieces of paper and ribbon which I have a lot of because I just refuse to throw away paper.  Unless there is less than an inch of it left I keep it, because some of my best and most creative last-minute additions came from scraps of paper.  I keep them in a folder and when I feel like I’m missing something I dump out all my scraps and usually in the massive pile of what some might call junk is my perfect scrap of paper shining like a beacon waiting for me to make it into something beautiful.  This actually happens more often than you would think. I did some other cards I think I will add those to my flickr though ,Im feeling kind of lazy today so I don’t know exactly when I will post them but hopefully I will have them up by tonight.

Im really up.

I just seriously woke up in the middle of the night with an idea and I just had to do some research lol. It is so funny how that happened. Any who my idea was ok I have already started with my Etsy account but I was thinking what if I went bigger.  Where I am from there is a lot of tourism based on it being a historical area, and downtown there are lots of small  family owned businesses all gathered in one place, well I was thinking of opening up a craft studio downtown that I could make open to the public to sell my items but also give classes on how to make certain things, as well as host meetings for fellow crafters. Sounds cool huh I think so. I am sure someone else has already thought of this but there is nothing like it around here not now. I think I am going to go to my daddy tomorrow with my idea to see if he wants to “Invest” and if  he could possibly help me look into some buildings down there. It’s just a thought but I think it has potential.  I don’t think I can work for other people for the rest of my life, I just don’t have the personality to besides I’m smarter than everyone I ever worked for anyway lol j/k a little bit. SN: I just got my vegetarian Starter Kit magazine yesterday, really informative and sad.  It really tugs on your heart-strings although I don’t like animals like want to hug and kiss them like some crazies do I do recognize that they are living feeling beings and for them to be mistreated is just as awful as a child that can not help themself, and some of the practices in the food industry lets just say that some things need to change. I’m going to post  a few links of information on the subject so you all can see for yourself.

Babies!!!

I got invited to a babyshower next month so I decided to use that as my inspiration for some cards. I think I am going to make her a diaper cake along with a card. I have a whole month so I have plenty of time to come up with something good.  I was looking at maybe knitting some little booties and a bib I don’t know.  Babies always make me happy so when it comes to babyshowers no matter who it is I always go overboard.  Seriously between perfume, purses, craft supplies, and baby stuff its a wonder I can keep any money.Whenever I get married my husband will have to be the saver because if not we will be two broke people lol.  Saving is one of those things that I know I’m supposed to do but it’s just TOOOOOOO HARRRD!  Just like cleaning this huge mess I just made is getting ready to be.  I think I took out every single piece of cardstock, paper ribbon and embellishment I own. A picture of this room would have been the real entertainment.  The worse part about it is most of it is on the bed so if I would like to go to sleep I have to get it up sometime soon.  Not to mention I’m at my parents house and at any minute my mom is gonna come in look at everything and complain that I need to go home. So yeah let me get to it.
