Feeling Linear

I'm not certain if it was the late hour, but I scrapped a linear/grid- like LO (without the help of a sketch etc) for the first time last night! I finally dug out my Fancy Pants: Daily Grind papers and had some fun...here are the results.



Cheers,

Steph

PS Kristine is playing with my Blog this week, I'm very excited to see what design she comes up with... She soooo talented!

Summer Colors on a Winter's Day

Although its been snowing here in Saint John for most of the day, I can't help but want to play with my bright, summer colored clay!

Dave was here this week and he was a tremendous help with some of my harder clay... He can mix a handful of clay in a matter of minutes, something that can at times take me 20-30! Thanks Sweetie *kiss*

Here are a few things I've been working on this weekend, with more to add tomorrow night so keep checking the shop!


I've also added a few holiday jewelry cloth gift bags, these are free with the purchase of any piece (earrings/bracelet/necklaces), please just add the item to your cart before checking out.
Until tomorrow night!
I'm hoping to scrap at bit tonight

I love Crops!

Kristine and I had a marvelous time at the Close to My Heart Crop on Saturday.....9am until 7pm of non-stop scrap time! I managed to put the finishing touches on a few buttons, along with completing Kristine's Creative Scrappers Weight Loss Journal kit, most of CS November kit and a little bit of a Funky MLBW business card Mini (Hopefully, this will be done soon and I'll post photos!)


Although my foot/ankle is feeling the pain today (I had it up on a milk crate while I scrapped, but perhaps not high enough!) it was a wonderful day :) Can't wait until the next Crop!


Kristine asked me to come up with an *exclusive* MLBW embellishment for her December kit, and here they are! I am quite happy with them (Shhhh...kept a couple for myself tee hee)


Take Care!

Sassafras + Mushroom Buttons!

Here's what I worked on last night folks! I love these papers from Sassafras Lass, so fun and bright, perfect for kids pages :)

It seems like all I've done lately is make buttons and jewelry, so it was pure indulgence to get my hands all full of ink and glue last night, and FINALLY use some of my mushroom buttons. They were the beginning of this polymer clay journey, and I think they are still my favs :)

Cheers,

Steph

Where Gabe and Seymour Announce the Cupcake Winners and Steph has a Cast for one Night!

What a weekend! After falling down a couple of stairs Thursday night (stupid shoes, stupid rain, stupid me) and literally crawling from my car to the front door...I woke up Friday morning and my ankle was huge, sore and starting to turn purple... It wasn't improving and by Friday night, so my awesome friend Auntie B insisted on taking me to the hospital (she's bossier than I, so she won). After 3 hours and a few xrays, they weren't sure if it was cracked or not, so they put a slab (fibreglass cast) on my leg and the radiologist was calling me in the morning.

After Auntie B dropped me off, I still had a few hours before Dave was scheduled to arrive from Halifax, and I was crawling around my house again! I didn't want to hop on one foot, because that would have scared the tarnation out of the cats, and well, we can't have that now can we?

When the radiologist called Saturday morning and was able to confirm that I DIDN'T crack my ankle, and I could take the cast off.....I couldn't get to the scissors fast enough! The idea that I may have to wear that for WEEKS literally made me ill to my stomach. How was I going to get laundry done? Put the garbage out? Carry things upstairs or downstairs? Shower? Wow, really puts things into perspective for someone like me who hates asking for help ;)

So now, Sunday night, I'm walking with a cane (a really pretty one with butterflies on it lol)... and I imagine I'll be on my feet in no time!

Now onto the FUN stuff! We have TWO winners for the Cupcake contest...(Gabe asked that I mention all cat toy thank yous can be sent to my address)


Congrats to Norah and MelW! Please email me your addys and I'll mail them to you asap!

Have a great week everyone,
Steph
