Busy Bee Update

I know that it's been a while since I've updated, so here goes!  Life has been a bit of a challenge lately with a sinus infection, followed by a trip to Florida followed by a pinched nerve in my neck and then in my lower back!  Thank goodness for the chiropractor who has been treating me back to relatively painless mobility!

I have been crafting, you know that since I did post the 6 pages I put together for my February class.  What else have I made this year?

Well I made 12 ATC's to fill one of the 7 Gypsy trays. It is a swap I'm doing with my friend, Janie in Florida.  She got the cards and opened them this week which is one reason that I didn't post them here, I didn't want here to see them ahead of time! 

I also created a 6"x61/4" prayer page for a fellow crafter on You Tube who is battling cancer. Krafty Katsy had a bone marrow transplant and if you are the praying sort, I would ask that you add Katsy to your prayers!  She is a sweet lady and what she is going through is so difficult! We were asked to do shabby chic pages and include a picture of ourself so that she might see what each of us looks like. I will be adding my favorite prayer to the back side of the page!



I also created a mini album using the Graphic 45 Once Upon a Springtime collection. Here are a few pages from the book, you cans ee the whole thing in the video on YouTube! I have no idea what I'll be doing with this mini ( think it is about 6"x9", so if you have any ideas, please do let me know!


  



Thanks for reading!!!!

Absolutely lovely, every single project!

Teela said...

OK...why am I scared to try something that gorgeous? Really, like did you start w/a bought booklet like from Michaels or what? This is reall terrific. Oh yeah, I can think of many things to do with such a wonderful project. teehee....

Wow those are awesome M-C!! You make such beautiful things.

Teela, you could start with a chipboard album from Michael's, this one is from Melissa Frances and I ordered it. However, you could cover any type of chipboard even the one from the backs of paper pads or for that matter cereal boxes! Typically, mini albums are not expected to be acid free and last 10,000 years, though the one I made is, lol! (OK, so I'm exagerating a little)

you have been a busy bee...glad you are feeling better!

I like the ATC cards in the brown, but I think they are showcased more in the white...makes each card seam more individual...I would show you IF I knew how to get them on the internet...

Thanks you for sharing your talent with me.
