Well, I'm a few days late for my weekly update, but better late than never! It's been busy as ever, and I haven't been crafting, so don't really have anything new to show off this week. However, I realized that I forgot to post the note cards that I made for my daughter, Meredith, so wanted to do that real quick. I think I mentioned this awhile back- I found this cool "M" stamp in the dollar bin at Michael's, and thought it would be cute to put on a little note card for Meredith. The need for something to write thank you cards for Christmas gifts prompted me to go ahead with that project, and I like how it turned out.
I sent in my cards for the Thank You card swap, and am now awaiting my swap package- I'm excited to see what everyone else did! That is my favorite part about the swaps, even more than creating my own, is seeing the ideas and interpretations that other people come up with. It really helps me to expand my own ideas and creativity. I have also joined another swap- this one is for Valentine or love-themed tags. I have never done tags before, so I'm kind of scared...but thankfully, most of the other gals in the swap are also new to tags, so we're all in the same boat! I have some ideas for mine and have purchased a couple of supplies, but need a few other things, so a trip to Craft Warehouse is in my near future so that I can get started. We have a long time to get this one done- end of February, but I don't want to put it off and then lose track of time like I did with the thank you cards!
Til next time- happy crafting, everyone!
