Creative Juices Flowing ...

I thought for a moment that my creative juices were once again flowing ... Not! I decided today that besides housework and a trip to the grocery store I would spend the day putting the finishing touches on my magnet project for my very first demonstrator meeting Monday night. We are having a Shoebox Swap (I had never heard of this!). I made two magnets (one for Halloween and one for Xmas because the theme was Holiday). Looking at my completed projects, I decided they needed something more so I tried these little matchbook covers. Since I am a new demonstrator , I did not have a lot of supplies to work with - I hope they are worthy of the swap!

I love Kiwi Kiss and wondered how it would play out on a Christmas card. I love the Christmas Punches set. For some reason the colors did not come out well in this photo. I am hopeful that I will have some cards and projects to display for my Open House at the end of the month (and I am praying that someone shows up!)


Can we say Blooper ...I was playing with the Big Shot and the Top Note Die trying to figure out how they make those cute little purse holders. I would have commended myself had I better matched the colors. Maybe I'll give it another try and use some of the new In Colors.


Well it's a full day of school tomorrow (yes on Sunday) from 8:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. Please pray my Fibro doesn't act up and I can tolerate sitting in a classroom that long! Best to all ... and as always, thanks for your support and for visiting my blog!
