So I promised I start blogging again and then my computer decided otherwise. It’s crashed twice in a month. I’ve just spent the last 3 weeks waiting for a part to get here. It was repaired today, new motherboard and hard drive. However, the new hard drive is blank, no operating system or restore files! So I had to call Acer and order a set for an additional 5-10 business days of waiting. I’m using my laptop which is less than ideal. It hates my camera software, and doesn’t really care for photoshop either. So I’ve been out of the loop again!
The good thing to come out of this is that I’ve gotten some sewing done! I decided to open another etsy shop for my sewing creations. I will be filling it up soon. I’m really into the fleece hats right now.
My daughter and I DID make the BOO banners from the Joli Paquet blog. Here are those pictures…..
They are pretty much the same except for different ribbons. It was a use what I have project. Rayna is only 5 so while she was at school I covered the tags with paper and did the sewing. Cut the lace into strips and then she assembled them with me later. I used my cricut to cut the BOO out of glitter paper. She was so excited that I let her use the cool melt glue gun! She picked out her own vintage buttons from my supply too. She was very proud to hang it on her bedroom door and decorate “her” space.
My friend Bonnie and I did a one on one supply swap. I was really bored with my paper scrapbooking supplies and she was interested in swapping some! It’s so nice to get a bit of someone elses stuff. The stuff she sent me was awesome, just the new inspiration I needed. If you like these pictures, check out her etsy store.
And she’s so generous, I’m on her digital designs creative team, she sent us each a little package as a thank you. Here’s what was in mine…
So that should pretty much catch you up on the last few weeks. I’m still working on a 100th post belated giveaway… stay tuned
