March 20

Happy Birthday Sandy ! Hope you had a special day!~ Was up to make Sandy a card this morning and it was one of those mornings - everything I tried DID NOT WORK - ever have one of those days when you wonder why you got out of bed - it took me over an hour to make this one simple card - if I hadn't needed it for today I would have given up - sometimes it is better to walk away and come back later to try again.

Busy reorganizing

Have had my nestabilities (cutting dies for those who are not paper crafters) stored on two bulletin boards which I lined with magnetic sheets - they hung right above my working spaces but unfortunately, they used to "fall" behind one of my work spaces ( a recycled dresser) which weighs a ton and is difficult to move.
 Yesterday I decided to go to local hardware store and found two pieces of pegboard in the scrap section - bought five packages of "hooks" -  total cost was less than $25- so my nesties storage area went from looking like the first pic to the second pic - thinking this might be time to decide what I want to keep and what I can part with. Have decided to keep the second bulletin board lined with magnetic sheets for those dies which can't be stored on the pegboard hooks. So second peg board will go to live at Sandy's house so she too has a place to store her nesties.

March 5

Yesterday was pretty much a bust for me - was up at 4 to take friend to airport - was so tired had to have afternoon nap - but did sleep last night and feel much better for it - Here is the card I promised yesterday - have had some spellbinders metal sheets hanging around - figured it was about time to use at least one sheet!
Started by stamping background ,used white embossing powder - heat set die cut branch (white which is hard to see) and then die cut flowers from metal.
