Gettin' Crafty!

This week has been so busy! I have reconnected with many friends and it makes me feel happy and alive! Where would we be without good girlfriends?? Here are some cards I made today inspired by my friends.

Also - had my first "Crafternoon" this weekend and it was so much fun. There were just four of us, but we had a lot to talk about, a lot to share, and some interesting projects were made. One of the girls was sewing bags for Morsbags. Go check out the site and make one of your own like I did! Here's mine made out of old dinner napkins. Reuse, renew, recycle!

Another girl was making draft dodgers for the local church windows, and another was knitting on a loom. It really was a lot of fun and great therapy! I have some more projects to show you but they'll have to wait until another time. My little one needs me now. Have a great week! :)

So.... it's been a while since I've updated my blog - I have just felt so unproductive lately. By the time it's time to craft - I'm all worn out and have no energy and just want to go to bed. Could it be all this snow I've been shoveling lately??? Perhaps. Here's some non-traditional Valentine cards I made lately using the new K & Company "Cut and Paste" line which I just adore! There's also some Basic Grey here - two of my most recent faves.

And oh! On an exciting note, a friend of mine here is attempting to start up a group of local crafters to get together once a month. She was inspired by a book called: " Crafternoon " - has anyone ever heard of it? I haven't read it but I am dying to read it and do more crafting. One of my New Year's resolutions was to create more and have more fun. Sounds good, doesn't it??? :)
