Welcome to my World

Welcome to my little corner of the vast God planned domain. I plan to share mostly my card projects here, you might even possible see some scrapping, quilt projects, and photography. Who knows I may even try other other craft projects. I am also going to share a selection of little recipe cards I have collected over the past few years - scrapped, of course. There may even be some little things of greatness of my daily life. Every now and then, I might even vent!

Scrapping Retreat

I am leaving in just about 30 mintues to a scrapbooking retreat for 3 days. I will be back with details and lists of things I got done on Sunday evening. That is if I am not ready for bed. No, I do not get alot of sleep at one of these. There will be about 32 of us from WA, ID & MT. It is a great time to see those from ID & MT. Most of the ones from WA I work with in our school district or have at one time or another. My hopes are to finish a couple recipe books I have been making as wedding show gifts, work on my Alaska cruise album (we took the cruise 2 years ago). Get as many sets of OSW cards done as possible, I think I have at least 6 sets coordinated to work on. Anyways, everyone have a great weekend and talk to you all when I return Sunday.

One sheet wonder Challenge

This has been one of my passions lately. Most of my family member said to me it is time for a nother pack of cards, I am almost out. I made all of my female relatives a package of 10 cards one year for Chritsmas. I guess it is time again so I am pulling out the OSW and doing cards that way this time around. Now i challenge you to make a set of cards and show them off on your site and give to a friend or family member. Here is a site I use for my template http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_NhD_mKt6RH8/SAKPXmtY7hI/AAAAAAAABX0/inNO44xr4AA/s1600-h/DSCN5068+copy.jpg

Teabag Folding

Today I made my very first Teabag folded card. I love how it turned out. At the site I used there are even ready to print out the patterned paper for the little kites you fold. Directions are also posted on the site and very easy to follow. If I can do this anyone can. Hope you enjoy the color pattern I choose for this simplet little card.I even plan to use some of this techinque in my scrapbooking this weekend at retreat. I had a lot of fun with this. http://www.teabagfolding.circleofcrafters.com/basickitefold.html.

Recipe of the Week

Sorry I am so late this week. The weather has been wonderful here and I have been doding osme yard work between making recipe cards for swaps and about 20 cards to catch up on some swaps. This is a great recipe for a BBQ and it certainly is BBQ weather in our part of the country. Hope everyone is having a great 3 days weekend.
