Finally I'm back from my trip. It was really great and I will be posting some pictures later. I am working now on my craftroom. It's not really big. But at least it's a room just for me. I painted it a smoky blue and the furniture is black. Now I am trying to arrange things in it to look nice. I have so much I don't know if this can be done. Here are some pictures of how I wish it could look, at least the neatness of the rooms. When I'm done I'll post my pictures.
Sorry again about so long in posting. My son and I are off to France and Italy. We are going to Paris, Nice and Eze France and Pisa, Florence and Rome, Italy. Of course we will hit all of the tourist spots and hopefully some non tourist spots, I'll have lots of pics and some inspiration for cards. I hope to get to go to a flea market to get some French/Italian ephemera. Bon Voyage!
I love the pic of the kitty and the lady bug! I have 2 furry babies, Mittens and Lulu. I am in the middle of making them scrapbooks, yes I know scrapbooks for kitties, but hey they are part of the family!
Another post 3 months later, I'm really not doing so good. Anyway school is about out, Hooray! and my craftroom is ready for me to move into it, I'm going to take some pics tonight and post. My only problem is I don't know how to organize my materials. I want everything to be positioned just right so I can have access to everything. I'm trying to plan a floor plan. If any of you have an idea let me know. It's 12x12 and painted a French Blue. I want the furniture, which I already have most to be black, I even have a huge rub-on of the Eiffel Tower that I want to put in there. Anyway I have a new stampset. It's not brand new to the company, but new to me. I have several friends who love tea, I mean they have it every morning and evening so I planned to make them cards with this set. Of course it's a teapot with a lot of cute sayings. I have posted some samples from the Papertrey site, the link is in the title, that are really cute! I hope you like them, and when I make mine, I'll post them too. Thanks to the followers, you are my first and have inspired me to keep this blog up to date, I hope I do not disappoint you!
I recently had time to look through my stamps and found some I wanted to make cards with. I have been collecting images for a while so I do not know who to attribute these cards to, I plan to do better. But I have all of the stamps the cards are made with and I really want to make some with them. These have really given me some great ideas and I love the images. Hopefully I'll post some that I made soon!
Happy New Year! 2010! I hope to be a better blogger. I would also like to make many more cards and other things. One type of card I thought that I would start with is the card with the dress on it. I saw this at at a workshop and thought that it was very cute! Let you know how it goes!
I have always loved France and the French language since I was in kindergarten and learned all of my numbers and colors in French. It was no suprise that I became a French teacher. I love everything that's vintage, pretty, girlie, frenchie, etc.
