April 17. That was my last post. That is FIVE months! How can that be possible? As I said in my April 13 post, it was time for changes; changes to and in my house. We gutted out and painted 6 rooms in our house, moved my craft room into a (previously) toy room, moved the toy room into a bedroom, made two bedrooms into an apartment of sorts for my mom. That was hard work. Harder still was the transition of having my mom live with us. But I will spare you those details.
I miss my old craft room. I have missed making cards and posting on the blog. I have missed reading your blogs and commenting. But hopefully, I will now be able to be creative again and get back into the world of crafts.
In these five months of my absence, I have made only nine cards (for family birthdays and anniversaries). In past years, I averaged 40 a month. So getting back into the swing of things has actually been like being a beginner again. Mojo is still keeping a distance. I can't find it just like I can't find other craft items hiding in new places in this "foreign" room.
This first card I made for my DIL's birthday then went on to make more cards - single layer ones. I am hoping to make sets of cards to give away as gifts. Plastic gift boxes are on order. I will post a pic sometime before Christmas on the finished products. But for now:
This idea was a CASE of Ellen's card. Can you believe her gorgeous coloring?
Here is another card, single layer, with sequins and embossed lines:
(Oh, my goodness. It has been so long since my last blog post, I couldn't even rely on my "auto pilot" mode!! Wow. It doesn't take long to forget how to do things!)
Thanks for looking. It is good to be back.
