Sorry, I've been plaqued with the mundane tasks of everyday issues ... the blog and crafting needed to take a backseat! And my biggest issue was cleaning out the apartment storage area located in the basement. My heartbreak was the decision to sell my porcelain doll collection that's been in storage for years! Reality has finally set in that there'll never be room to display them like I once did in a house. Besides, I have other interests now that take up plenty of space as it is! :0) If interested she's available under my Dizzy Designs Store tab.
Amoungest my many creative hobbies I'm a clay-addict, although I haven't had time to create, I did come across these adorable handcrafted originals by Buttonwilloe that make for great gift-giving ideas!
And for you pursey-people, another addiction of mine as well, Mel Stampz has Purse Templates Galore that you'll truly enjoy using!! :0) And she uses some awesome crafting techniques that you could also apply to scrap pages and card crafting or any paper craft project!
Even though the "mundane issues" are preventing me from staying on-top-of-my-crafting projects, I did manage to quickly throw this card idea together - actually it was a quick card creation that I needed for a birthday! I'm not particularly pleased with the background idea for the front, but it's cute and got rave reviews ... just love the simplicity of the pop-up character inside.
