Shopping Our Stash Challenge 80


Shopping Our Stash has a new challenge up – make a winter or holiday themed card.

Here’s my take –

Wasusau Fleck cardstock front and circles. Red is DCWV Christmas pack from years ago. Black from stash. Fiskars corner punches. Sentiment from computer. TPC Studio Coffee Cafe stamps, colored with Spectrum Noir. The color bled on the cup on the left. I did that on purpose… (Actually, I’m way new to the whole Alcohol based marker business and have only used them a handful of times.)

OWH Sketch Challenge 143


Operation Write Home has a new sketch challenge up – #143 with Tonic Studios.

Here’s my take –

I saw the sketch and thought “Snow”. I just found a Martha Stewart Drippy Goo Punch at a totally beyond amazing price and knew I’d have to use it with this design. Snowflake paper, yellow for window and black cardstock from stash, grey from Colorbok, Wausau Fleck for snow, sentiment from TPC Studio Winter Blues Set.

Keep Your Neck Warm


As my creativity is zero right now in the humor department, I’ll share one of my compulsions.

I knit. Alot. Really – very much alot. I have to keep my hands busy and one of the ways that I do this is knitting. I currently have 4 totes of scarves that I’ve made. One of the totes is full of scarves that I have listed in my Etsy shop – HandKnit ScarfShop. The others are waiting to get listed.

My current faves are pullover cowls / neckwarmers made from a really bulky yarn. They’re huge and offer a great deal of neck and throat coverage. I’m big on this – if my neck is warm, I’m warm. They can also be worn multiple ways –  they can lay flat for full neck and throat coverage, can be folded over for a collared look or can be gathered for a looser feel.

Thick and Plush Dusky Purple Cowl Scarf Neckwarmer

Keep your neck warm, look fab and help make sure that my house doesn’t become over run with scarves.
