I was so bad today. I went to a Stamp/ Scrap Art Tour show in Columbia, SC and had a blast, but I did way too much damage too. I was kidding about having to sleep in the doghouse because my sweet hubby doesn't say a word about my buying craft supplies, but the guilt when I go overboard like today is what eats me up, (at least until I start playing with all my new stuff.)
|My haul for today|
I got a friend of mine to go with me to the show and as soon as we walk up to the doors to go in, she recognizes a lady who lives just down the street from her, Carol was the lady's name. Well Carol is a card-maker too, and she expressed just what I've been whining about for a year and half now, "There is no one around me that makes cards or at least I can't find them if they're out there," and here we are in the same town! She gave me her blog name and I'm going to check it out as soon as I finish this post. I'm so excited to find a fellow card-maker right here in Aiken and get this, this is the second one in 2 weeks! So my wish of finding some local craft buddies may be finally coming true at long last, plus, I am in the beginning stages of starting a new card-making/paper crafting group at my church. More about that later.
I haven't been on here in a while but I have been crafting. If you can stick with this post (it's gonna be a little bit long 'cause I've got a lot of lost time to make up for) but if you can stick with it, I need some input on a project below. We'll get to that in a minute.
Here we go.

|Yarn wreath I saw on Pinterest, but I made mine small so it can be a candle ring|
*What I can't decide is whether to put tiny flowers in it or small Easter Eggs, or both. What do you think?
Of course I've been making cards, below are just a few. I've actually been working on a special project that I'll tell you about later because it deserves a special post of it's own. It has to do with a horrible tragedy that struck our little town and about our community showing appreciation to our public safety department employees.

|I made several Valentine's cards but who wants to see those now- (nobody.) I just wanted to show this one because it uses a digi I got from Cre8tive Hands. She puts out some really cute free digis. Check her out.|
|Birthday card for one of the nephews (the only little one left in the family.) I think this penguin is "Dexter" by Bugaboo if you know or if I"m wrong please tell me.|
I CAN NOT wait to show you some of the things I got today in more detail- that is if you want to see them. I'll be posting them over the next couple of days. I got some new "things" to try out which always excites me, so I hope you'll come back soon. Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
