taking another crack at Dotees

After my first dotee attempt I was REALLY discouraged. It was so much harder than it looked! Well, it turned out maybe it was my planning and lack of common sense. So I decided to try again, and was WAY more pleased with the results.

These are both for celestial swaps and I am happy with how they turned out. I was surprised that a lot of the red shiny stuff wore off the star while I was working with it. I stamped the letters on the twill banners on the moon. Thanks for visiting!

Taggy Collagey Layout

Despite a busy schedule lately, I have been sneaking in some creative time whenever I can. I've mostly been scrapping and maki ATCs.

I have also fallen in love with Pinterest, and my favorite layouts I see there are the busiest ones, covered with lots of tags and collage elements. They inspired me to make this:

Thanks for stopping by!

My First Dotee

Making this was a bigger challenge than I thought it would be. I usually have complete confidence in my sewing skills until I sit down at my machine. I was committed to making it because I was in a swap, so I had to stick to it. In the end, the skirt didn't line up in the back, but otherwise it pretty much came together. I am definitely going to try another one!

So this was a bigger challenge than I thought it would be!

Keeping Busy

I have been staying very busy lately, between work and Girl Scouts and my daughter's birthday and just general stuff that needs to get done! I have not had as much creative time as I would like, but I have certainly been taking a lot of photos for use when I finally do have some.

Now that I am several weeks in, I can tell everyone that starting a Facebook group for local scrapbookers was one of the BEST ideas I ever had. I would highly recommend it for anyone who would like to make some new scrappy friends, and have the opportunity to get together and crop. What started as me talking to a friend has grown to a group of 57 women and counting. We've planning several events including local crops and even an overnight at a campground, with the hall rented for cropping.

I also love having a challenge every week - this layout is from a sketch challenge from a couple weeks ago.
