I've been here living with hubs for a while now full time. I miss my Dad back in California, and I miss my girlfriends. The ones to go crafting with, or to the movies, or even just out to lunch. So, I decided I needed to get out there and see if I could meet some women. I joined a few meet up groups, centered on crafting.
I attended two meet ups this weekend.
I met some lovely women, and look forward to seeing them again. I enjoyed myself, the socializing was fun. I made a few cards, which will appear this week and next on the blog, once they are received by their recipients. I wouldn't want to spoil the surprise.
I do have 1 card and 1 project to share today.
Another man card, I made this one for my Dad, in the hot So Cal sun he is probably wishing for a cool scene like this. This is my second card with this stamp. I water colored it with distress markers and added a bit of glitter. I used two die cut circles to frame it, and a stacked die cut Hello from SSS for the sentiment. I added a couple of wood veneer shapes as well to balance it. This time the chairs are red. They stand out a bit more, than in my last card here.
While at one of the meet up's I spied a cute little craft tote one of the ladies had. I asked if I could take a photo of it. I just thought it was the perfect size to tote along basic supplies for crafting to a crop or card party. I have one I like in CA but I keep it out there with my scrapbook supplies.
I made a stop at the fabric store this weekend, and bought a few pre-cut squares of material and made myself a little tote and a tool roll up. The tote is reversible, which I think is fun. I won't get tired of it. The tool roll up reminds me of stamping, and might just provide some inspiration for future cards. I thought I would show them to you. They are around 5 by 5 by 5 (or 6). I don't used patterns, I am not a good direction reader. I had fun making these crafty items, and they make me smile when I look at them!
Thanks for stopping by!
