I had taken some pictures of Valentines I made this month and thought I'd get them uploaded here. Little did I realize that pictures I had taken at Christmas were still on my camera! Yikes! I need to get back on my game. My pictures mean a lot to me but I've just not been real interested in doing what's right with them. So, it's time for me to get back on the ball!
December was so busy and I did make quite a few Christmas gifts, most of which I did not take pictures of. I was making and wrapping in the same breath! I am a huge fan of Pinterest and a lot of the ideas come from there. I'm inspired almost daily and am so very addicted. I don't think there is a day that goes by when I'm not spending at least a few minutes on the site. What is Pinterest you say? It's an online bulletin board where people "Pin, Like or Comment" on postings that others have found. The pins and likes can be saved to your own bulletin board for review later. I currently have over a thousand "likes" and have created several of my own boards and actually have several people "following" the pins and boards I have created. Give it a try at www.pinterest.com and if you need some direction send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll help you start getting around!
So I'm posting some pics taken between December 2011 and February this year as well as the afore mentioned Valentines which I am actually quite proud of. The flowers on some of them came from a technique I learned at a Sassy Chic card making class. My folded/accordian type flowers still need some work but I'll keep trying. I may have to break down and buy Tim Holtz's die that makes the strips already scored. Should make them so much easier. A few pictures of family at Christmas time and from my daughter and nephews combined 25th birthday party. They grow so fast!
