Christmas Gift

Okay, here is a coaster set that I was asked to make for a Christmas Gift. I would love to hear what you think! The design and name on the box was done by hand. My husband thinks the name might be too much...

Here is what I started with, and the end result...

LJ's 3rd Birthday Party Invitations

A few random cards...

Here is a card that I created for John's Graduation party...

This is a free-project card that we made at one of the Home Gatherings.

This card was made by Kay Baker (cousin) for John's graduation.

This card was made by Heather Ollanketo (sister-in-law) for John's birthday.

Something I want to do more of...

Here's a little something I did for LJ's room and I really liked how it turned out. I would like to eventually make more and in different themes. I'll post them when I do. If anyone is interested in one, just let me know. I would be happy to make one for you!

Here it is laying on 12x12 piece of paper to give you an idea of the size.

I opened some of the embellishments that I bought for the new card club and I had to share some pic's. I am so excited! As soon as I get the rest in I'll create the cards and post them. We'll be starting the club in January, and there are still spots open so reserve your place now! It will be open for 10 ladies to join. I can't wait!

LJ's Boo-boo

I've been thinking a lot recently about taking a career path in papercrafting, but am not sure how to do so or what exactly I have to offer. So I spent some time tonight browsing through a ton of crafty blogs and after seeing so many extremely talented people I started to feel like a very small fish in the big creativity pond.
As I was pondering my own creative destiny and feeling a little bleak, my little boy LJ had hurt his thumb and the only thing that would fix it was a kiss from me. It's amazing how quickly he made me feel like the most important person in the world. I love him so much!
