Home again, home again ~ jiggety jig!

Howdy. Suzy, Carolyn and I went to San Antonio for a SCS card swap ~ Saturday. They're a lot of work and a lot of fun. It took (me) the last few weeks to prepare to swap cards with over 40 other card makers. On the way home, we stopped to eat and shop in two stamp stores. I think good fun and tired describes the trip for us all. See you soon!

Pretty in Pink ~ Fe Fe Fiona update

Hi all. I bought my girl this new pink coat and I think she loves it. She seems to be pretty cold natured. I left her in it the other day while I ran a few errands. When I returned home, her little front leg was caught inside. Bless her heart, she looked frightened and afraid to try to jump off the couch. So, I won't "leave" her in it again. Doesn't she look cute though?

I'm crafting with Suzy today to get ready for the big swap next weekend in San Antonio.
Maybe I'll have a card later. . . . . Have a great day!

Hello Jeanette and KW # 38

Hi Jeanette. Thank you for your kind words about my blog! I hope you come back often. For the rest of you Jeanette's one of "old/new" friends. Jeanette and I went through school together but haven't actually been in touch for the last, humm. . . . . well just say 25 years plus! There are several of us that have reconnected on Facebook. Fun, like a reunion with out the traveling!
These colors were awkward for me. So awkward, I completely trashed my first attempt last night! None of them are really comfort colors for me which drew me out of my norm. Have a great weekend! Is everyone off on Monday?

Blue too can be cheery.

Normally I think of blue as a sedate, sort of introverted color. Do any of you think colors can provoke moods, feelings or emotion? I wanted to participate in the OCC challenge and needed a cheerful card. So I added Apricot Appeal to Bashful and Brilliant Blue. Of course polka dots always make me smile! Have a wonderful week!

Are you hungry?

OK, one of the things I'm grateful for from 2008 are the friends I've made through blogging. There were few greater joys than meeting a few of them in person. One in particular, inspired this post. Angie took a pix of her frig so I thought I'd do the same. As stuffed as this is, Jenny Craig helped me drop over just 50 pounds in the last 5 months. So, she and her peeps must know something right? Now, sure this is a drop in the bucket but it's also a step in the right direction! Count your blessings not your struggles!

K Werner ~ Color Inspiration 36

Happy New Year again, just wanted to load this card before the deadline. Now really, I've got to clean up my space. No more ignoring the work for the fun! Cheers!

Family, Art and Inspiration.

Happy New Year! While home for a few days for Christmas, my favorite cousin Sharon was generous enough to let me stay in her room. Her hubby and son were at the lake. Her room is just beautiful. I took a snap of a picture on her wall thinking I could use it as inspiration for a card. Then my mom's aunt passed away the other day. I decided to fashion this sympathy card from it. Guess I could have gotten closer to the picture but I think it turned out alright. Hopefully, I'll be posting more frequently now that the holidays are winding down. Joy!
