Bleached Snow

Spring...right around the corner. Right? The promise of a jumble of color, buds bursting, birds singing, walking to work, and one of my favorites - the sound of children playing outdoors.

That's not to say the 'snow days' sprinkled throughout winter don't provide a cacophony of muted gleeful sounds through tightly closed windows. This is a product of last week's snow day. Snow and snow paint, energy and some ingenuity! The sun is taking it's toll on it but as I said...spring is a'comin'!


I revisited the bleach technique for this card. I should use it more often because I really like the effect and enjoy doing it.

Just Cards

Melancholy day today. A prayerful theme seemed appropriate. I ended up with two of them because I hate to toss the negatives and just use the positives from die cuts. (And I don't like to toss the positive and just use the negative...sounds reasonable...right?) Not sure if that is me being frugal or me being lazy...

Blue or Green Bunnies

Ice storm seems to be on the way. Or so the weather-people have predicted. I love snow. I think it should snow all winter long. Ice? I can live without that! Nothing worse than an ice storm! Trees split and fall, cars crash, people slide...

Okay - maybe a tornado is worse. And a tsunami. I'm sure a tsunami is worse. And an earthquake - that can't be good. Alright... I guess I won't whine about the impending ice storm. I will just hunker down. Work from home. Have all devices supercharged and keep the quilts handy in case the electricity goes out (oh the perils of an all-electric-home). And hope that the weather people are wrong.

Hunkering down would be more awesome if I could spend the day in my Bubble - but I brought lots of work and the laptop home with me so I can work from home tomorrow. (Insert cranky face.)

Yes I do love winter. I love the Midwest change of seasons. I love snow. I just got back from a recruiting event in Brookings, SD. They have LOTS of snow right now! Did you know that SDSU (South Dakota State University) has and internationally recognized Agriculture and Ag Biology College? Well...one of MY favorite researching that those delightful students spend their time doing is ICE CREAM R&D! Ice Cream AND Cheese! Well...I can't visit that campus without a trip to the Dairy Bar for an ice cream cone - no matter what the temperature and weather conditions.

I am normally a VERY loyal Wells' Blue Bunny Ice Cream fan (made in the Ice Cream Capital of the World - LeMars, IA). But put me in the SDSU campus Dairy Bar...and I can't even remember that silly bunny's color... Green? Pink? Purple? I'm not even sure it's a bunny....Call me fickle but in reality I am just test tasting future Wells' Blue Bunny flavors as MOST of the R&D staff are SDSU graduates!

You must be from the Midwest if it is NEVER too cold (the temp at the time of this
purchase was 8 degrees Fahrenheit). So your mittens get a little sticky. They wash! This was so creamy and delicious I feel like driving back up north right now for a second scoop!

Enough about the cold and food! I did get a card made. I wanted to join in the Just Us Girls challenge. It really was a challenge. I love the look of OTHER crafters all over work I just don't have what it takes to make it work. I'm not sure I pulled it off here but I gave it a go! Nothing better than a challenge that actually challenges! Right?

Shiny Squirrels and Dotted Eyes

Blogger! You let me down! I had a post all ready to go! It was a great post! I hit "save"! You didn't save it! You wouldn't post - you didn't save...What were you doing for the last 24 hours!

It had to do with Bubble angst....should I "clean" or make cards? Not so much clean but put away the business of Christmas. I hauled all the Christmas goodies down to the family room table. And there it sits glaring at me.

I can sit here in my Bubble - at my craft table- and with a simple glance to the right and I can see the stack Christmas pretties that are begging to be put in their off season storage. I'm not procrastinating. I'm managing my valuable time. If I wait one more week...I can put away the Christmas decorations as I get out the Valentine decorations out. Now THAT is  just plain brilliant multi tasking time management! (Okay...you are right - it is just straight up procrastination!)

But my card space and my card making Christmas presents are calling to me. So my solution? Just don't glance over to the right! Not even once.

It must be a day for distractions. One look to my left and I spied my sewing machine. I decided I needed to sew! So....I embellished a few kitchen towels to have on hand for gifts. I'm embarrassed to say I actually had to dust off my sewing machine before I got started! Poor neglected Pfaff!



I did get a few cards made. Today only the Bubble won out! No Christmas business was completed today. Oh well....cards and laundry - sounds productive enough for me!

Ever find a goof-up only after you upload a photo of it? I just realized I owe the card below a dot for its "i". I didn't notice the 'cherish' sentiment is missing the dot over the 'i' until I uploaded it. I better get out my smallest single hole punch and glue!

Just for the Joy of It!

I really like shopping at Target. I mean I REALLY like shopping at Target (or as my friend Lisa calls it "the hundred dollar store" - no matter what you go in for....you can't leave without spending a minimum of a hundred dollars.) I ESPECIALLY like the dollar aisle!

I found these kind of odd wood-look chipboard snowflakes. There were 6 of these oddities in the package so I decided to make six cards with simplicity, texture, and "joy" in mind. I hesitated in buying them as I wasn't sure what I would do with them. I think it was ONE WHOLE DOLLAR well spent!

Tree Skirt Selfies


It is officially Christmas tree season! Bringing out the tree skirt that my sister, Judy, hand made with layers upon layers of applique always makes me feel a little melancholy. Each of the Twelve Days of Christmas have their own wedge of this skirt that looks practically new even though she make it (with love) in 1984. I love this tree skirt! I even pinned it together and wore it for a selfie! Okay Okay - so there was a SUBSTANTIAL gap in the back... Selfies are taken from the FRONT! I will spare all of you and won't post my tree skirt wearing, shades of Bernice Clifton on Designing Women.

I sent a picture of it on a group (family) text. Her grandkids (my great nieces) were bemoaning that they didn't have one, while one of the married one's bragged (or exclaimed) she "wasn't even born then". Was that a slam at my age? Hmmmm......

Handmade Christmas Tree - circa 1984.
 
Here is Stella posing in Judy's daughter's tree skirt down in Atlanta, GA.
 
I really need to ask her how many of these she made! On to the card....

Klutzy Bling

Daughter Amy's bestie always has a Christmas card request. I have created cards "where no {cardmaker}  has gone before" with a Star Trek themed Christmas card and uber laden bling cards....not my best work but I have to admit they were fun to do!

No theme requested this year so since BLING is her signature 'color' that is the direction I went with Ginny's cards.

 
So...the center of this was from my last post. I am SUCH a KLUTZ with all white cards. I don't know what I did I don't know how I did it but I got a HUGE smudge of black ink on the front of it! So I had to mulligan it and used it to create this. Geeeezzzz! #KlutzMuch?

I hope Ginny likes these. I don't think I can bling it up much more than this. Maybe I should have gone with a Christmas Harry Potter theme...or Christmas Anne of Green Gables...or Christmas tennis theme.... So there is a tiny glimpse of Ginny!

Tiled Cards

Card time! And tile time! I saw some tiles painted using alcohol inks. I decided to go home, pull up a tutorial or two and give it a go. The first stumbling block was not having any alcohol inks to play with. So...I searched for DIY alcohol inks. Seriously...there is a DIY for anything and everything! NOT that I would recommend using any old DIY project... Be sure you look at the reviews! Some of them are hilarious! There was one about how to make your own wipes with paper towels and some kind of liquid. When they mentioned them molding...I laughed, moved on, and decided I would continue to buy baby wipes at the store for my stamp cleaning.

Several tutorials later...a trip to the store for rubbing alcohol, Sharpies, and plastic cups and I was almost in business. A trip to Habitat for Humanity's ReStore for assorted tiles and I was ready!


Colors are not as deep as they are in real life. It was fun to do this!

These will be separated and made into little magnets. #StockingStuffers

Falling for Fall


It was my favorite time of year! Autumn! To be perfectly honest EVERY change of season is my favorite! I love the change that magically happens every season. I love the change of the leaves. I love the first snowfall. I love the first peeks of spring blossoms.
 
We may not have the spectacular colors of the upper Northeast but we do have some pretty vibrant  colors here in the Midwest.
 
Cardinal bush (at a McDonald's). I don't think the car behind me appreciated me taking a photo and delaying his Big Mac!
  
 Some green. Some red. Some gold.
 
Red blushes.
 
This one has only half embraced autumn!
 
I love the seeing the mix of summer touched by oncoming fall.
 
Bold golds!
 
Just a hint of autumn.
 
 
So with fall in the air - a fall color card is in order!

A Touch of Flavor

Again, the weekend dissolves quicker than a popsicle on a blistering hot summer day. Why is that!? Yesterday included a trip to Omaha for hair cut. And I mean hair CUT! I got my hair cut short enough FOR a blistering hot summer day. I haven't had SHORT hair in years! This is going to take some getting used to... Also had dinner with Omaha sista which included Bloody Marys AND sweet potato fries - YUM!!!!

Today we went to Junkstock. We attempted yesterday - but the line of cars to get in was backed up for MILES. I voted NO! They estimate there were 10,000 in attendance yesterday! YIKES! So we went today. Still plenty of junk to be had! I love to see not only the creative re-purposing but the vintage items, and the displays. It is a day of creative overload always topped off with kettlecorn!


 Actual doors at the entrance! So many details!
 

Who doesn't love pom-pom garland!?

Cute display or what!!!???

Now...on to the card. I may have done a little 'fudging'.... I can't believe in my vast collection of stamps I don't have a pineapple! I have vegies galore! I have strawberries, grapes, apples...but alas no pineapple. So I used "pineapple flavoring" when I created this cupcake! No - REALLY!!! Okay so disqualify me. I had fun coming up with a 'work-around'! And isn't that what card challenges should be: fun and CHALLENGIING!?

Patio Life

Wow! It has been so long since I blogged I wasn't sure I would remember how to do it! Card - check!
Something to blog about...SO many topics to get caught up on!

I need to get my thoughts organized and get back on the blog track. That will also means getting back to making cards! Where did the summer go? Not into making cards that is for sure - but on a positive note my patio looks great! That is where most of my after-work hour were spent. Not here in my 'fiber bubble' but outside in the 'patio bubble'! I kept hubby very busy in HIS 'work-shop bubble'!

So...I had this wine rack. I made several attempts to give it away. After no takers. I was just about to send it to the thrift store when I had a "scathingly brilliant" idea. A little PVC pipe, some paint, a few succulents and a little help from hubby dearest... He cut the lengths of PVC and sliced the oval openings. He made the legs/stand for the final product. And BOOM! An instant color popping planter all from a repurposed wine rack.

Rejected wine rack. PVC cut with oval slits.
 
Painted and planted and attached to stand.
 
 Patio corner!
 


I'll post more patio pics in a later blog (yes I plan to get back to blogging and carding). On to the card.

More is More When it Comes to Pearls

Rain - all weekend. So explain to me why I didn't get a dozen or two cards made? I tinker too much! Or to quote my Daddy: I PUTZ around too much. A perfectly good rainy weekend and what do I have to show for it? Reorganized craft area, a pot of spaghetti and meat sauce for the hubby to have for lunches this week, a dusted living room, laundry washed, dried, folded and put away, several hours of computer work - for my job, four beds worth of linens washed and reapplied, but only ONE CARD! I think I need a Weekend Time Management Course. Or better yet a Weekend Priority Management Course.

Then to top it off I went a little pearl crazy. I guess since I didn't make more than one card I felt the need to over use pearls? I can't explain it. It looks more like a pin cushion than a card!

Smooshed Junk

Where does the weekend go? I can't believe I have to go back to work already! I need a course in time management. I need to manage to find more time to spend in my Bubble making cards and pretending I am creative and productive.

I shouldn't complain. I did take Friday off to go with a friend to JunkStock in Omaha, NE. It was great fun. So much fun in fact that I went back on Saturday with husband dearest. Junk, crafts, kettle corn, antiques, more junk, festival food, lots of walking, kettle corn, live music, interesting people, more junk (did I mention kettle corn?) ...it was a great two days! Even though I don't 'do crafts' (just cards) I came away inspired.

Once I take a photo of my lovely purchases I will post them! First I have to do a little work on a couple of them...note to self - take before and after photos! I bought a print that needs a frame and I bought a little something/something for my sissies! Bet they will be THRILLED to find out I bought THEM some "junk" too!

Go North

If you are new to my blog - you won't be aware - that a request or a need to make a wedding card makes me weak in the knees. And I don't mean weak as in swooning with lovey-dovey feelings! I mean sweaty palms, increased heart rate, oh-no-anything-but-a-wedding-card attack!

I will do anything to make my way around to a non-traditional non-mushy wedding card. In light of this I purchased the Tim Holtz Compass Blueprint stamp and die set. The minute I saw it I decided it would be my wedding go-to set! The reason I stumbled upon it was I was at Hobby Lobby INTENT on using my 40% off coupon!  So...no more sweaty palms...I now have my very own standard go-to non-traditional stamp set for weddings! And I got it on sale! Winner. Winner. Chicken Dinner! As the inside sentiment I use "you found your true north".

Birds of a Feather

I ordered the Tim Holtz Bird Crazy set along with the dies. When they arrived I wondered what the heck I was going to do with them!

Then a colleague of mine was named to the 100 Great Iowa Nurses! Well Freddie is a one of a kind 'bird'! He marches to his own drummer. He never disappoints on holidays - dressing with flair to match the occasion! He is a wonderful nurse and I am proud to call him friend!

The bird stamps caaaww-caaaww'd at me to use them! This little guy is a perfect homage to Freddie! I've seen him in a clown costume, over-the-top Mardi Gras fashions, he has sported amethyst broaches, and the full set of Pac-Man lapel pins (all at the same time). So I colored this guy with Brushos in an appropriately flamboyant Freddie style and gave him a splatter paint wing!

So now I am thinking I'm going to find other bird related reasons to use the rest of the set of stamps...cuz this guy was fun to make!

The Bean Envelope


Last weekend I raked. This weekend...nearly had to shovel. It snowed off and on all day today. That is how we roll here in the Midwest!

Furnace on....Windows open....Close the windows...Turn on the furnace!

I'm so anxious to start buying bedding plants! Luckily the shops don't have any yet or I would have filled a cart with them! I guess the local green houses know best... The rule of Green Thumb around here is DON'T PLANT UNTIL MOTHER'S DAY WEEKEND!

My Midwest sister and I both sent snowy photos from today to our Atlanta, GA sister. We shared a text stroll down memory lane of wearing wooly warm winter coats over our frilly, short-sleeved, Easter dresses to Easter Mass. And being too cold (and mad) in church to even be able to shed the coats to show off the fru-fru dresses!

Enough about the weather...on to the card. Went with a 'coin card'. I have GOT to use up some of my 500 hundred coin envelopes!

Aching from Raking

Spring is not only in the air - it is in the ground! My arms may be aching from raking...but it was worth it to find this wee, solitary gem!

Yes...there actually are spots where you have to rake around snow piles - but hey! That's what living in the Midwest is all about. You never know what treasures you may find!
