Circles and Squares …

16 Jun

This seem strangely early for Christmas cards – but when I’m selling cards for a living – I cannot afford to wait till Christmas to design my Christmas cards! No one would get it by Christmas.

Here is a Christmas Card I designed … You can find it on my website if you want to order this for Christmas.

It coincidentally also fits into the circles and squares challenge call from Flourishes this week that Maki has issued. Circles are punched out from red and green cardstock with Fiskars medium and large circle punch. Poinsettia was from Making Memories Falala collection (now discontinued unfortunately). Sentiments are from Stampers Anonymous – Mini Holidays Number Two.

Have a fun Christmas in June.

Craft It Forward Blog Hop

14 Jun

Good morning bloggers,

I came across this really cool 2011 project that I had to share – it is organized by Scrapbooks Etc. and the project is called Craft It Forward.

Craft It Forward is a movement designed to benefit local charities through craft projects.  A handmade card can bring smiles to kids in crisis, a fun banner can brighten the day of adults in residential facilities and a bookmark can encourage someone learning to read. You can make a difference in your community by doing something you love – crafting!

Here’s how it works:

Throughout 2011, make a project (any project) and donate it to a charity that is near and dear to your heart. Then, add the photo of your project and a short note about your donation story to the Craft It Forward gallery for a chance to win $500 in cash and a $500 donation to a charity! How cool is that – it’s a win-win proposition.

Feel free to contact craftforward@meredith.com with any additional questions.

I plan to participate – will you join me?

Lennar @ Rhapsody Open House event …

10 May

Hi there bloggers!! The Lennar @ Rhapsody Open House has come to an end. What a wonderful showing of people who were willing to share their time and fun personalities. The model house shows beautifully and everyone was visible impressed. You can see the floor plan of the model here.

I also can’t begin to thank everyone for their support with card sales. It certainly is a boost in ego to hear someone compliment and buy my handmade cards. I truly love making cards and it has taken me a number of years to be able to put a price tag on my creations and part with it. Thanks Scott for including me in the event – I am armed with inspiration for my next batch of cards.

Till the next post ….
