In the month I’ve been staying with my parents, there hasn’t been as much crafting time as I would have thought. My parents are pretty active in their community and there were many get-togethers at friends homes, lots of card playing, BINGO once (sometimes several times) a week, and shopping trips. Plus I’ve been busy with the job hunt and finding a place to rent.
But in between all of the socializing and trips to Orlando, I have been able to work on some projects. Here’s a peek at at one:
In the back ground is a layout loosely based on a starting point layout from Shimelle. There was a tag and some doilies in the kit I was working with so I created a fun embellishment to go along with the layout.
Nantucket is one of my favorite lines from Pink Paislee and I was able to use up some more pieces from the ephemera pack. The turquoise and yellow works nicely with October Afternoon’s Farmhouse collection. And I have discovered that Scattered Straw distress Stickles do a great job mimicking sand. I spread some of these Stickles on the word ‘beauty’ on my tag and it provided the perfect beachy touch!
Do you have any big plans for the weekend? I will be unpacking. Still. And I need food, so grocery shopping is a must. And perhaps a trip to IKEA too. Hopefully the cable and Internet will be hooked up today. Do you know how hard it is to live without the Internet? If I wasn’t so busy unpacking, I’d be living at Starbucks for their wi-fi!
If things are quiet around here next week it is because I am trying to get things to a liveable stage. But the crafting and finished projects will return soon!
Thanks for stopping by today!
