Super Easy Card

I had a weekend with my fun and crafty group which brought us to a Hoppy Lobby, Now you may think that's no big deal, but when the closest one is 100 miles away, it's pretty exciting stuff. It's a dangerous place to go when your house is for sale and you are trying not to bring anything new into it, but they had washi tape on sale and it doesn't take up must space so I couldn't resist.
I could hardly wait to get home a try it out.
 It would have taken less then 3 minutes to make if it weren't for the chalk tape that I stamped on us white ink, that takes a little longer to dry, it is one of the quickest cards I've ever made.

I even took it one step further and put a couple of strips on the inside. This one is going off in the mail today to my neighbor who is recovering from a fall.
Opps, here is a side note I just touched the white ink and I guess it never dries on the chalk washi tape. I made it last night and it's still not dry, but the good think is that is can be easily wiped off with a damp paper towel. 



When my daughter was home I was going to have her model a couple of scarves for my blog, but I totally forgot so I had to use my standby model.  You know which one I'm talking about.
The one that's isn't very cooperative.  I told her to look at me and this is what she did. I'm sorry Lucy but this is the price to have to pay for being in this family.
These are two different scarves, they are just the exact same color. This one you can pull up over your head so it acts as a hat as well, but Lucy would have no part of that. 
I have a very good reason for have two scarves the same color, (actually I three) as some of you know we went to Florida for two weeks last winter and I brought  along a little crocheting to do, just in case. Well it was so cold down there I spent the evenings inside crocheting so I ran out of yarn. I went to JoAnn's and bought the wrong yarn, do you know they have at least three different weights of yarn all in the same color?  Well this is what I did with the left over yarn. You can find the original scarf here.
And as long as I'm in the scarf mode I don't think I ever posted a picture of the other Rapunzel scarf I made so here it is.
This last one was supposed to be a knitting project.
It was one of those when you buy the yarn you get the pattern for free. My friend that was with me convinced me I could handle it. She bought some yarn as well and whipped hers out in no time.  After struggling with mine she helped me get started but as soon as she wasn't by my side it all went down hill and after ripping it out four times I hinted that she should make it for me and I would pay her, but nope, she told me I could do it.  Well I did it alright, I ripped it out one more time and crocheted it instead.


Pop Up Card

I love pop up cards so I made this one for my neighbor after she fell and broke a couple of bones.
I like that they are three dimensional any they fold flat so they can easily be mailed.


Stampin' Up Thank You cards

These are the cards I made to toss in the bag for all my customers that placed an order at my last Stampin' Up event.


Microwave bowl cozy

I think these bowls are just genius.  They have been around for a while but are totally new to me. A cousin received one for her birthday and when I saw it  I knew I needed to have one or two so I looked on line and found a free pattern.

You just place your bowl of soup, oatmeal or whatever you wish the cozy, pop the works in the microwave, and when you pull it out you have something to hang onto so you won't burn your hands. How smart is that and why didn't I think of it?
