Parks and Rec Class Wk 5

Woo Hoo! SO I started my next round of classes, the day before I left for convention.(Note to self-not the wisest thing I have ever done!) But it is a great group, so I am glad I did it. Here are the three cards we made the first week-week 5 for me! So does this look familiar? Yes I cased it!!! I think this is the card in the mini that convinced me into putting in a level 2 worthy workshop! To cute!
And this set. Artistic Etchings. I didn't even know if I needed it, until I started playing with it! Luv it!

Here we water colored with pencils. I haven't done that in a long time. Everyone seemed to like it though!

Parks and Rec Class Wk 4

So I forgot...really :) I thought I had posted the 4th week of classes I had for parks and rec, but I guess it never happened. So.... Here is a vintage style Thank you. We stenciled with Cherry Cobbler and Early Espresso on Vanilla. I love this color combo.
And how about these owls. They have to be one of the cutest things! I used the play date DSP with them!

And last, and least! I just couldn't get this one to work out for me. I guess its okay, but I just wasn't thrilled with it!

Convention Swaps

As I mentioned a few days ago, we did a "roommate" swap at convention. I made the little butterfly pins for everyone in my down line and sideline that attended convention! I got some great gifts back!!! Check them out! Here is a little different angle....The fabric flower is a luggage tag from Julie, the gum holder was from Bobbi, the butterfly pin was what I made, the travel book was from Shawna, the tree box with candy from Sandi; The felt cup cozy was from Theresa; The green socks were from Maureen, and the decorated chocolate and card were from Toni! Thanks you all for the cute stuff!

I bet you are wondering what I got for my owl swaps! Well above is a picture of some of the stuff I received!

Artisan Award Finalist

So I am back from convention in Salt Lake City. SO much fun!!!! But have you ever felt like you needed a vacation from a vacation? I came home to craziness! Well I guess it is nice to be needed!
So as most of you know I entered the artisan award contest this year. I was a bit bummed that I didn't win-but also felt like I could have given it a bit more. So it was nice to hear a congrats from my friend and side line Kathy that I had made finalist.
I unfortunately missed the awards night at convention. Had anyone mentioned I would be able to stand up among the other 21 finalist, I would have been ALL OVER it. But with my baby with me and being as tired as I was, we opted to miss. O'well, hopefully next year I can stand for the award not the finalist! So here are the ones who ALMOST won...congrats and congrats to the 10 winners!

So do you ever have those GREAT plans to get tons of stuff done...and then well life happens and you get 14 of the 3,326 things on your list done? Welcome to my life:)
I had this great plan. I would of course get my work done, house cleaned, laundry done and TONS of swaps finished before convention. Well my works was done, house..well its not so bad, laundry is waiting for me when I get back and I got 17 swaps done:)LOL So here he is! My little owl post-it holder. SImple but cute:)
Here are the rest of them...and what the inside looked like. The ribbon holds the pencil in and the pencil is wrapped with dsp. The outside was created with the new play date file folders. I had fun making them, but boy that was a lot of punching!
