It has been a LONG time since I sat down to blog.  There were so many times I said, I'm going to make an entry, but I didn't.  Thought of starting a new blog, but didn't.  I made excuses and came up with reasons not blog and not create....  Today was the day.   I finally signed in and the first thing that came to mind was:

".... dear God! I'm here! I'm here!"  
Yes, that is one of my favorite lines from the movie, The Color Purple.

I'm not going to sit here and try to play catch up with everything that's gone on in my life that has taken me away from crafting.  Just know.... I plan to ease back into it one day at a time.  I do want to give a huge shout out and an even bigger THANK YOU to Kim Kutie.  Over the past couple of years she's been the one person to consistently check in on me and make sure everything was okay.  Kim, I'm here and so glad that you never stopped reaching out.

So for now....

Ummm... not a card...

So this week is another challenge over at Brown Sugar Challenge Blog!!

Felt or Fabric?

I chose felt!
(Felt Flowers, that is)

I have a co-worker that has a daughter.  The little girl is always putting notes on her door, so what better way for her to get her point across than with this cute door sign??

I wrote "Do Not Enter" with a Copic Marker.  I cut out other rectangles and inked them to match so she can  change up the sign.  I attached a piece of magnet tape so she can change out the text anytime!!

Happy creating.

Yep... Another Card!

Okay, so I'm slowly getting back into the swing of Design Team projects, again but my MOJO just isn't quite there yet!  Mojo: Returning Soon....

It's Challenge time again at Brown Sugar Challenge Blog!  
Our sponsor this week is:

I love Bugaboo images!! The lines are so crisp and sharp!  Makes for easy peasy coloring!!  The theme was PINK, ORANGE and YELLOW.  I wanted something bright and this is what I came up with!!  I used the image, Nurse Margaret - Nice Nurse.

As you can see I left the card blank on the outside.  The image comes with a sentiment, however.... I forgot to print it.  (just being honest)  When I glued everything down, I kept saying something is missing.  I knew I was going for CAS (Clean and Simple), but good grief!!  And you want to know another secret???  I forgot to color the lips!!  Thank goodness for Microsoft Digital Image Suite (photo editing software)  That's what I use when my pictures look nice and have the "fancy" edge and my blog name.

Happy Creating!

I've missed this...

Ahhh... to hold a Copic in my hand and just color!  I've missed this.  The smell of adhesive (LOL) and the miscellaneous sparkle when you touch wet Stickles, then touch something else.  I've missed this.  Most of all I've missed that sense of peace and calm that crafting brings to my life.

Having said that... It's Challenge time at Brown Sugar Challenge Blog!!  The theme this week is Bunnies! Thanks to QKR Stampede for sponsoring us!!

Here's my creation for this week!

Copics Used:
W5, W3, W1, R00, Y13, Y08, Y06, BV34

Decided to keep it CAS.  I'm not really a big fan of yellow, but I wanted something that was bright and cheery considering the BLAH mood I've been in for so long.  My little Bunny is popped up but at this angle you can't see it.  (Laptops and digi cams never work when you need theme to, so thanks Kim!!)
My other Teamies did an awesome job with their cards, so check them out here.

Happy Crafting!

On this day....

Today I decided it's time to come back to the craft world!

We all go through things in life and sometimes it is best to just take a step back, which is what I did.  With the exception of 4 Christmas cards that I made the Wednesday before Christmas... I hadn't touched a craft supply.  No shopping! No Copics! Nothing.

So much has happened since my last post....

  • Chandler played on 2 football teams and competed on the Central Junior High Cross Country Team!!  As always I am so very proud of him.  
  • We've moved to a new place! (YAY!!!)  The new place is really nice, but it feels a little empty.
  • On December 4, 2012, our beloved Babineaux passed away.  I'm not going to go into the details here, but it was so sad.  Now two months later I still miss her dearly.
  • Last weekend I attended my first ever scrapbook retreat and had a blast!  I'll post pictures soon.  I actually completed 10 pages plus 2 that need finishing touches. GO Me!!
  • Now, I'm only designing for Brown Sugar Challenge Blog.
  • The Robert Jackson Design Team changed it's structure and no longer focuses on Robert's Art.  You can check out those talented ladies at 613 Avenue Create.
  • It's a new year which brings forth new and exciting adventures.
Stay Tuned... there IS more to come!
