Note to self, Valentines Day is over

Time to update my blog. I haven't been sitting at the computer much lately. I haven't been sitting at all much lately. Back troubles are back and keeping me standing. I guess the timing is good because there is just so much to be done in real life.

I haven't given up on my creative spirit though. I signed up for She Art taught my Christy Tomlinson of Scarlet Lime. I haven't gotten all my supplies pulled together yet (excuses excuses) so I don't have my first canvas even started. But let me tell you she is incredibly inspiring. I can just see myself using digital supplies in the future, but I'll stick to my paper supplies for now.

A few friends and I are getting together and are going to hold another bazaar, this time in April. Up until now all of our bazaars have been in the winter so my main contribution was beaded ornaments. But who wants to buy ornaments in April, so I'm thinking I'll make some scrapbook pages that the purchaser can put their own photo into. I've spent an obscene amount on the latest Prima flowers and butterflies, but find myself just gawking at them and their gorgeousness. Too pretty to use, but I must.

So, put all of these factors together and it will equal a lot fewer hours for me in front of the computer scrapping. I do promise to show some of my "real" scrapbook pages - if I ever get any made. LOL

I have gotten just a few pages done over the past couple of weeks. So without further ado...

OMg, Holly--I almost thought that top layout WAS a real paper layout! You have really done the shadows and layering so perfectly that I would have believed you if you said it was a scan. :) Please do show more about your crafts. That sounds like so much fun. Wish I could come to your bazaar. Love your new blogwear. St. Patty's Day is a favorite at our house. I redid my blogwear, too (it was still Christmas--oops!) I'm challenged with blogwear, so what I put up I plan to leave there at least until fall. LOL
