My First Post of the New Year!!

The happiest of New Years to you all! I do hope you all had a blessed and happy Christmas!
Not too bad I guess, today being only the 3rd of January and I am writing a post! A good start I think!! I hope to give my much neglected blog quite a bit more attention this year than last.
So, today I have spent quite a bit of time searching for a new blog theme for my blog today. There is this one particular web site that has a variety of blog designers on it and for the life of me! I can never seem to find it without searching for it for hours! I think it is called the scrappy cat or something similar, but I just can't seem to find it as yet! You'd think by now I would learn right?!
Yesterday, I started working on a new calendar project prototype. I am happy so far with the way it is turning out. It took me quite some time, but I finally figured out a way to make a triangular slide through drawer to fit behind the calendar, not the easiest thing I ever did do. The pics show the base of the calendar.
I do not like the placement of the holes so I am going to change that on the next one and since I am making this for my hubby, I think I will use Graphic 45's A  Perfect Gentleman. I just think it will be much "funner" than the one in the pics.
Well, I am signing off for now to work on the calendar. Everyone have a great day and a blessed New Year!!
Tons of Love!

“Graphic 45 Design Team 2012 Audition"

This sweet li'l 4x4 mini album is made using Graphic 45's "Once Upon A Spring Time" paper line. Find more detail on this project Here.


This is a special 4x4 mini album I made to sell. Special because I designed a holder for it to sit in with velvet jingle bells for the feet! You will find more about this project HERE. 

This is my very first completed Family Recipe Album! The papers are by "Webster's Pages". Although it was a bit of a challenge, I created this stand for it to sit in on my kitchen desk top. I just luv the mason jar tag I created especially for this mini. You will find more details on this project here.




I created the adorable Christmas album below as a gift for my sister. I was so pleased how it turned out for her. I  used Basic Grey's Jovial paper line and stickers.  It contains some of my own hand drawn designs in it such as the snowman with the red top hat on and the snowman peeking from behind the santa pocket with felt accents on his…

Finally!!

I have for so very long, a few years now, wanted to make a doll house album. I have talked about it, drawn out ideas and designs for it, and mulled over it for quite some time. The only other project that took me this long to pull together was my first Recipe Album!! Yesterday, I decided on a design and today a theme! Two elements one absolutely must possess in order to create any thing at all! I was thinking I should like to have my book designed so that I can have interactive paper dolls in it. I thought that I would design them as well, but as I glanced through an old 2009 desk calendar by Mary Engelbreit, I decided I would try to use the many paper dolls I have in the magazines I have collected of hers over the years instead. I think I have found a suitable paper line as a base to start. So! Onward and upward I go in true Mary Engelbreit fashion!!
Wish me luck!
