What A World Wind Tour

Hi everyone!  It's been a while since I posted and I'm sorry about that.  I found myself with some other interests and scaled back what I had originally been doing.  I still am the Card Making & Scrapbooking Contributor for Create for Less and am enjoying my 6th year of writing for them.  That has been about all of the paper crafting I've been doing for about a year.  This year, I will be doing some work for Cut Out & Keep, but this time instead of writing technique tutorials for them, I am joining their online Snippets magazine team so keep an eye out over on their site to see what I will be writing about there.

I mentioned that I had found some other interests and that is of jewelry making.  I've been spending as much time as I can creating pieces to wear myself and to enter into such events as our local fair.  This year was my second year to enter and to my surprise I not only brought home 2 blue ribbons, I also brought home a best of show.  I am already planning and starting work on my projects for next year and will be adding an additional piece to my "to do" list which will be entered in our 2018 state fair.

This year I've been especially excited for the holidays.  My favorite ones are Halloween and Christmas and in honor of them I will be participating in a really fun blog hop next month so be sure to keep coming back here to Peg's Crafting Corner to see what projects I will be doing.  Although, I'm not a big fan of Thanksgiving this year does have me a little more excited as it will be the first time in 27 years my family will be home to celebrate.  In honor of that, I created this invitation that I shared over on the Think Crafts blog.  You can find out how to make it here.

Well, that's just a little bit of the world wind tour I've had in the past year or so and where my love of crafting has taken me.  I never know where it will go next so join me here to share the adventure!

Happy Crafting Everyone!

Birthday Card for My Dad

This is a birthday card that I did recently for my Dad's 86th birthday.  He was born on veteran's day and is a veteran so I thought he'd enjoy having the red, white and blue and stars of this card.  The design is one of my favorites as it can be adapted to so many themes and occasions. 

As you can see, I've been playing around with some new features that have been added to the photo software that I use.  It's really fun being able to do my own signature for my watermark. I have more to learn, too.  I say it's just another part of creating only this is done without paper and scissors. 

I hope you are having a great creative day!

Happy Creating!

A Congratulations Card for Twins

Hi everyone!  I'm sorry it has been so long since I posted.  It has been a very busy time for my family and I haven't had the chance to post.  I am now getting back into a schedule and will be working on posting more often. 

This is a card that I did recently for a couple that had twins.  It was really fun to make.  I have to say it went through many ideas and transitions before it came to this and I'm really happy with how it turned out in the end. 

It was based on a card that I did over on the Create for Less Think Crafts blog a while back.   You can find the tutorial for the Oh, Baby! Card that I did HERE. The tutorial has the onesie template posted if you'd like to use it, too. 

Thanks for coming by and happy creating!
