Giveaway Goodness :)

Here are some very nice goodies I won on the SEI Blog! I love this line, it's called "Lovebirds". If I ever get my "scrap room" clean and organized (I'm in the middle of an overhaul right now) maybe I'll make something cute with it :)

Had to share this :)

My 9yo daughter just finished a week of art camp that focused on collage. Each day throughout the week the students, using various medium and experimenting with textures, created colorful pieces/samples. On the last day they drew a self portrait and filled in the white space with torn pieces of their samples. I just love how hers turned out and am so proud of her natural talent! The instructors were quite impressed :)

Here it is:

This is the little project I mentioned I had been working on for a friend. It's done! (I apologize for the poor photos) I got the idea from the Zutter Bind-it- All blog. I'm a tea drinker and so is my best friend so I just had to make one for her :) The phrase "a cup of tea solves everything" came from a Facebook group I'm a member of, I love the phrase and thought it would be perfect for this project.

This is the first "page". Each "page" is actually a pocket, inside each pocket is a tea bag. There are a total of 6 pockets.

This is the last page. The SF stands for Special Friend :)

Some of the phrases that I used, were actually borrowed from a rubber stamp company (that I love!) Papertrey Ink. I couldn't afford the stamp set right now so I had to borrow some of the sentiments :) I'm not sure what the rules are about that sort of thing but I'm hoping it's ok.

I used a variety of papers, most from Stampin' Up! Some from Collage Press. Also used some rubber stamps from Technique Tuesday from their Ali Edwards line.

I finally figured out how to post "blinkies" and such on the side bar of my blog! The Peachy Cheap website is awesome, I got a great deal on some beautiful paper from Fancy Pants and they threw in a cute little tote bag :) The Spongebob/Patrick thing was a silly thing I did for my 9-y.o. daughter's entertainment, she found my results hysterical! I told her of course I'd get Patrick, I'm married to him ;)

I'm almost done with a project I've been working on, a gift for a friend of mine. As soon as I'm finished I will attempt to put pics up here.

So I started this blog...

...a LONG time ago and it was originally going to be all about my Nigerian goats and farm life experiences. Well, I still have the goats and my little farm but realized that I have so many other interests that I can't blog about just one thing. So here I am, posting my first "post" (I think that's what it's called).

I'll admit that I fear I really have nothing worth blogging about or anything people would be interested in reading about, but I'll give it a try and maybe even post (if I can figure out how to do it) some creative projects I'm working on or (gasp) have finished! That is if I don't get completely distracted by something else...

Time to go feed the animals :)
