I'm trying to get ready for another craft show. I just signed up for a show on March 13th at the Vista Elk's Lodge. If you are in the San Diego area and would like more information about the show or if you'd like to be a vendor, just contact me and I can e-mail you the information.
I have actually completed several different projects. Yesterday I went to JoAnn's and found some really cute Easter, St. Patrick's and Valentine's stamps and cards all for a dollar. A few weeks ago I found some chipboard books at Michael's for a dollar. So I have started making several different projects in addition to finishing up those pirate baby shower invitations for my SIL. I finished this photo purse a few days ago and I just got around to uploading the pictures. I finished a butterfly chipboard album, but I still need to take pictures of that. I also finished up some Valentines, some St. Patrick's and some Easter Cards and I will be taking those pictures over the weekend. I also started making what will become flower lolipops. After looking at this list, it is no wonder that my husband thinks I'm ADHD. LOL!!!
For the photo purses, I just kept repeating a pattern. On the front of the photo purse, I glued a giant purple flower. For each page I traced and cut out the purse shape from some designer papers that I had lying around here. I glued on a 3.5 inch mat to each page and a chipboard tag that had a saying on it. On some of the purses I glued on ribbon. On all the pages I added a round rhinestone to the top of the mat to make it look like each purse had a clapse. I thought it turned out cute. I hope other people like it too. It would be a great gift for a friend's birthday or just because.
You can probably tell I don't have kids. I would never be able to get this much done if I did. Since my hubby gets off late, I pretty much have the afternoon to myself to do all these crafts. I used to complain about my husband getting off late, but now that I think about it, if he came home sooner I'd never have time to play with my crafts. I better finish this up so I can go start dinner. Have an excellent week and remember to keep it crafty!!!
