Long Time No Blog!
Hi Everyone! Long time no see, huh? I feel like I haven't been here for ages, so I'll get down to sharing what I've been working on. I've been addicted to making these little inchie cards lately, and on this one I used some of those quilled flowers I wrote about a few posts back. I learned to quill back when I was in junior high and I've been getting back into it lately. It's relaxing to sit and cut and twirl paper while I'm watching tv with my family - and then I get to use the flowers on cool cards like this one. This card is in my Etsy shop right now.
Here's another card I did a few weeks back. This baby sold right away, so I'm thinking about making a few more for myself. I just love the colors! I've also been making sets of notecards with a similar design. Like these....
I used all sorts of goodies on these cards - buttons, punches, dew drops, rhinestones, sticky backed pearls, epoxy stickers, etc. They're really easy to make too. I cut the little square out on the Cricut, tape them down to a piece of card stock, and then decorate each little square with something different.
So what else has Mousemom been up to? Oh lots! My son started high school this year so now we have a new schedule (that starts quite a bit earlier than our old one - grrrrr) and I've been getting used to that. I've also been out in the garden quite a bit. We started a vegetable garden this year so I've been busy freezing green beans and tomatoes, and making refrigerator pickles and pico de gallo. I've also been trying to get out and visit my grandmother more often. She's 92 and has a lot of health problems and can't get out of bed anymore, so I try to visit a few times a week. I've also been busy with card orders too - which is good because that's my favorite thing to do next to spending time with family and friends. :o)
Well I hope you are all doing well! I'm off to catch up on blogs! Thanks for stopping by - see you soon!
