Time!

Time!

My baking class has ended for another term and while I’ll be sad that there are no more smells of freshly baked bread, it does mean that I will have my weekends back!!  Expect new projects to be posted soon!!

I’ve been concentrating on knitting a friend a baby blanket for her soon-to-be and I finished it this week!  I’ll post pictures soon.

Creativ Festival Fun

Creativ Festival Fun

After 4 days at the Creativ Festival this fall, lots of money was spent and many classes were attended!  I even bought myself a fancy new sewing maching.  Now I only need to learn how to use it!  🙂

Not that I needed it,  but I also discovered a new craft called locker hooking and no, it’s not meant to be anything dirty!  🙂  I’m hoping I can make myself some sort of rug or something out of these new supplies.  We will see!

Out of the paper craft classes we went to, I have a picture of the coolest one!  We started to make a 3-D scrapbook album.  It’s so neat and collapsible!  I just have to finish it.  There’s another four sections to finish and then I have to add in all the pictures!  I also have a Christmas kit of the same type to make as well.  They are so cute!

Quilting and Knitting

Quilting and Knitting

When I haven’t been making cards, I’ve been going pretty knit crazy lately!  I think I’ve been averaging a scarf every 2-3 days.  I’m sad that I haven’t really progressed past the scarf stage but at least they’re pretty!  I finally made one using a pattern so that’s something!  🙂  Here are the pretty scarves in the pretty colours!  I even decided to make some adorable baby scarves, only to learn that you shouldn’t really put a scarf on a baby…  Who knew?

I don’t think I’ve yet posted a picture of my completed quilt top!  Even though I hate it now, I’m still proud that I made it this far.  The next stage is just to actually quilt it altogether.  You know, that will only take a  year or so.  No problem at all!

Stamp-a-rama!

Stamp-a-rama!

It’s very sad when I went to an all day stamping event way back in the summer when the weather actually reached above 15 degrees and I’m only sharing them now.  It was such a great day hosted by the wonderful Christyne Richardson.  We made not only cards, big and small, but we also made a cute carrying case, a decorated canvas, and a creative new notepad, complete with a set of bookmarks!  We used the Simply Scrapping Kit in the summer mini for all of these wonderful creations!

Here’s just a few of the cards we made that day!

Stampin’ Palooza Swaps

Next, I have a few cards to share that I got from the swap at Stampin’ Palooza.  It’s great to be surrounded by so many talented people!  I can’t wait to make some of these cards for myself!

As Promised

As Promised

Okay, as promised, I have lots of pictures to share!

The first set is a random sampling of some cards I’ve been making recently.  Some are Lindsay originals and some are cased from card classes over the last year.  As you can see, most are Christmas cards because it’s that time of the year!  I’ve been pretty busy fulfilling a number of orders and I hope more orders come in soon because they are just so much fun to make!  🙂  But what would a sampling of cards be without one with buttons?!
