I’ve decided to try my hand at a little graphic design, and created a desktop background for your pleasure. This is absolutely free, I just ask that if someone asks you about it, you let them know that you got it from me. =) I made it as a jpg 1360 x 786 as the original size. I don’t have file hosting, so just right click on it and save it to your hard drive. I hope you like it!
Also, let me know if you like it, I may make February and beyond!
Happy New Year! How did everyone spend their last night of ’12?
I spent it without my husband, but my best friends, and it was fantastic!
Not everyone got Christmas cards, so I made some new year cards. This involved a photo and Happy New Year printed on card stock, spray adhesive, and glitter! The flower up in the corner is recycled newspaper and the chipboard numbers are from BasicGrey’s Fact & Fiction line. The background behind Happy New Year is glitter I found and copied and pasted til it made an entire background =)
I pray that 2013 shows you blessings beyond your wildest dreams, and you go for the gold in whatever you undertake!
Well, it’s here! It doesnt’ quite feel like Christmas, but I’m bustling away anyway. I have stockings to finish, a tote bag to make, and there is a turkey in the oven. There is still much wrapping to be done, and if it’s all finished in time, I’m going to make some more pot holders.
My husband and I were talking about it, and I’m going to make an “office day” to work on my business. I think it will be Mondays. I’ll be working on my stock, taking photos, posting on my blog and etsy, and trying not to spend too much time on Facebook! lol
I also am excited to start a memory jar that I saw on Pinterest. You just take a big mason jar and as good things happen (or bad) you jot it down on a slip of paper and put it in the jar to reflect over at the end of the year. I’m excited about this because as I am trying to reflect on 2012, I’m kind of only remember from October on. It scares me that I remember so little of the year, but a lot has happened in my family’s lives.
My sincere prayer is that you and your family have a Merry Christmas, and that 2013 is filled with abundance!
Over at quiltinggallery.com, they are doing a quilt block drive for the victims of hurricane Sandy. More crafty people are needed to assemble log cabin quilt blocks and send them in! Go here for the registration and instructions.
So theornamentgirl.com is one of my new favorite places to surf! I just saw on her facebook a popcorn ornament and had to wander over to her blog to see it! (click on the pic to go to the tutorial)
oooooo and I was reading through the comments and found another good idea! If you don’t want to pop corn in a glass ornament, find the plastic ornaments that open all the way and pop it before hand!
I have pinterest, I don’t use it a whole lot, but I have quite a few categories. Some crafty, some inspirational.
