The next class I took was put on by A2Z Essentials and I feel like they deserve to be advertised here as well as the class was fun, the instructor was part owner and it is a local company (well almost as it is in OH). We made this cute little clipboard. It was not a lot of work- didn't take a whole lot of technique but it was fun. Plus I got to use a crop a dile, which I vowed I would not buy as I don't need another tool- but I will be buying one this week! :) Here it is! I think it turned out sweet- the LO was about 10x10 inches, and I learned to use a little bling on this- but it was simple jewels from the local craft store instead of the high cost "blings". We used the crop a dile to make the holes to put the ribbon through and that was amazing using- it cut through it like paper!
It is gettin late- have to watch Survivor so I will post some more stuff tomorrow. I bought enough "stuff" so I should be doing some projects over the next couple weeks to show you.
Oh- and you may notice that over to the left you can now subscribe to this site and it will let you know when I post an update. And leave a comment about the projects, let me k now if you like what I am posting or if you'd like something specific!

I decided that I have to get myself into shape so I signed up for Curves........ this should be interesting. Figured, maybe if I pay to work out I will actually do it. I know some of you know what I am saying. We have the equipment here at the house and I do alright for a short time and then POOF- I have no interest. I start hanging things on the equipment in hopes that I won't even see it sitting there in the room. Come on, you know what I am saying. Well, except Jen who goes to the gym all the time! Anywhoo- it seems like it should be quick and not too painful. I will go early, before anyone can see me and hopefully tone up. You know (wink) get back into the tiny bikini (NOT!). Wish me luck.
Well, going to sit outside on the deck with hubby for a bit...... and I promise to post you something over the weekend- even if it is my project from the Mega Meet!

This is a standard sized card, base is chocolate, then a layer of white and then chocolate/pink color blocking. I love it! This is a card that I am considering entering in a contest- will have to think about it. Don't you just love the paisley sets now?
My son was chewing gum and the little box it came in was oh so usable. So, I took it and made a pattern of it. Then of course I had to go ahead and make one of them- not sure what I would do with it but it is stinkin cute! It is a bit too small for a gift card but you could stick a pack of gum or something in it. Oh well, it is small, it is cute....... whatcha gonna do?
I hope you all have a great week! It is suppose to be a beautiful one- to get into the high 70's here in MI so I am so looking forward to it. Plus I am getting together with friends on Tuesday (yes, Jen and Kim) and we are going to make some fun projects.
Tata for now!

Okay- on to what I have been doing: I thought I would post my clips- I just love these little buggers and so much fun to make. You can get the huge clips at Target or Walmart and then just use a big image to embellish it. This one I used the flower from office accoutrement (and I promise no more from there- ok?) smiling.... I have also made them with smaller images and attached to the mid size clips. These are nice size still but I just love this one as it makes a statement. And what a great gift for co-workers and friends that you know use these a great deal. Plus, who can resist a fun project- I know I can not!
