Commotions & Creations

 Hello All of my Wonderful Crafty Friends,

I have been so busy it is unbelievable, all this week I have not gone to bed before 2:45am.  The latest I have stayed up is until 4am.  It is so crazy!!  I am working with Jane at the Scrapbooking Factory to get kits done for the CKC convention.  I really enjoy creating layouts but it can be very time consuming trying to come up with designs for different layouts.  I'll have to take a picture of my workspace sometimes to show you what a big production it is.  My husband and family are so sweet about letting me use up my space and their as well;  Critiquing my work as they pass by and I'm really quick to call one of my sons to help pick up a gazillion buttons off the the floor because I dropped the container.  I have one son who is a pro at finding my little blingy crystals when I drop one.

Okay on to my creations, besides creating layouts for Jane, I also create designs for paper craft classes. This week Jane gave me a project with what we thought was a wood album by Kaiser Craft but it only contained two rectangular pieces of wood...Eek!! Well they were front and back covers but no pages, so I put on my SC (Super Crafter) cape and set out to make some lemonade.  With a little ingenuity and  brain exhaustion, I design an accordion fold to create the pages.  I think it turned out pretty cute.  I used paper by MME called Stella & Rose...Great Paper!!!  It's not pink but it's lovely enough to get my creative juices flowing :0)
Here's what I came up with:
I Took This

And Made This

(I am so annoyed that I can't get the pictures to turn the right way.....grrrrrr)

NEXT...Crafting By Designs had a fun challenge and I was the designer for this week to come up with an altered creation and here's what I came up with:

I Took This
And Made This

Well that's it for now...well not really but that's all the time I have to post today...remember back in June my son broke his arm, well he's doing much better.  Yesterday I caught him hanging in the tree...is his harm all healed you ask....NO, he still has to wear a brace!!  Well today is his doctors appointment and well see if he's done any damage.  Not to mention the big scar on his elbow right next to wear they inserted the medal rod!  Oh well boys will boys.

Please have a totally Blessed Day today and thank GOD for His Tender Mercies towards us as we try to live in this Crazy, Mixed up WORLD!!

  1. The accordion fold was exactly what the covers needed. I am continuously inspired by your vintage style. Try to get some rest though because there is no creativity for the weary <3
