Well it's been a long time!
I took quite a hiatus, plus we moved, and did a full renovation of our (new to us!) 45 year old house!
That was fun and interesting, and stressful at times as well! There is nothing quite like living in a house that's being renovated! But the best part was waking up one night and having finally made a decision on taking out a wall I just went at it with a sledge hammer!
I am so blessed to have a HUGE crafting space now, and God has given me time each morning to spend with him, and then I get to work on my crafts. The ideas are definitely flowing!
Saturdays seem to be my biggest crafting day, I get my coffee, I do my devotions, and then I dive in! I have had a renewed love of my Big Shot die cutting machine! Like seriously, I almost got rid of it in the move! But with Tim Holtz's new chapter 3 release I have been going gangbusters on this thing!
Then I found the Funky Insects, and the Funky Cactus! WHAT! I am so in love with both of these sets of dies! Yesterday I had this idea to use an old Ikea frame I had in the craft room, I made background papers using stencils and texture paste and then distress sprays and distress crayons, and then I made the green paper for the cactus, and cut them out and voila!
