I know, I know. I have been gone from my blog for over a month! What on earth could keep me away from crafting and blogging for so long?
And I know everyone of you understand that. At least, I hope you all understand!
We are slowly making our new house our own. We've got some painting done, tiling work finished and starting to replace the baseboards in the house. My Dad was here for a visit at the end of last month and said to me, "You know, 8 out of 10 people would have just left this perfectly good house alone and lived in it the way it was. You are one of the 2 people that has to change everything about it."
And he's right. The house was just fine when we moved in...except it was all white. I cannot live with white walls. I mean, look what I do for a living...color and texture and photos!
So that is what has been taking up my life right now. Hard to craft when all your stuff is still packed up, right? I have a feeling my new craft room will be the last room in the house to get finished.
I did get to play a little bit with the new Mischief papers and the Wicked Stamp of the Month earlier this month. I created this banner for a class that is being held tomorrow. It's simple, but fun to put together.
Here it is:
Stamps: Wicked (August 2011 SOTM)
Inks: CTMH Sunset, Black
Papers: CTMH Mischief Reflection Kit
Accessories: CTMH Licorice Opaques, Black Ribbon (retired), My Creations Banner, Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge
(And I apologize for the condition of the photo...I am really missing my computer and Photoshop right now!)
