Winner, Winner Dress Form Blog Winner!

Winner, Winner Dress Form Blog Winner!

Bad, BAD Blogger! Here we had so many nice people stop by and leave such wonderful comments…and then I just *POOF*! As with many of us, LIFE just gets in the way of my creative endeavors sometimes. My greatest apologies for not posting a winner yet. I could go on and on about what all got in the way and had me so preoccupied, but I will instead move forward and ask for forgiveness AND most importantly ….

POST THE WINNER!

Altered Mini Mini Paint Can Swap

Altered Mini Mini Paint Can Swap

Oh yea! I am so late in getting the photos posted of my swap partner’s mini paint can that she sent me. In May, I participated in Crystal’s Altered Mini Paint Can Swap and JackieBault was my partner. I posted the photos of the can I created before I sent it off to Jackie, but I was out of town for a long while when hers arrived to me. It sat, all alone, silently…waiting for me to pick it up from the post office.

What a lovely gift to be waiting for me when I arrived back home. Unfortunately, I had some deadlines that I had to meet, along with a large yard sale planned so I didn’t get the photos taken until this morning. In my opinion, not posting photos in a reasonable amount of time is RUDE! Photos of what you received in a swap is all part of the THANK YOU! and acknowledgment of all the hard work that goes into making something special for someone else. Jackie I owe you many HUGE apologies for my tardiness! I hope will accept my sincere regrets and that you will consider partnering with me again soon!

Take a look at my can and all it’s goodies!!!!

I just adore the Tim Holtz Bird Cage Die embellishment. How clever is that? Gives me all sorts of ideas!

Tim Holtz Dress Form Tag Swap

Tim Holtz Dress Form Tag Swap

Well, we have finally completed the first Tim Holtz Dress Form Tag Swap over on the Cricut Message Board. Who would have thought that a die cut and some fabric, paper, feathers and a few other embellishments would present such a stunning group of dress forms?

I love Tim Holtz products and knew I just HAD to own the new Alterations Sewing Room Die set when it was released. Lucky for me, a friend sent me a link (thanks Caitlysnmommy!) to a great sale and I was able to make it all mine!

We have started a new swap which will be due in August. Check it out HERE. In the meantime, please enjoy this quick video showcasing all the fine work of by each of the participants of the June 2011 Tag Swap.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Since we are empty nesters now, we do not decorate for Easter as we did when Hais and JMorgan were li’l darlins. So in following our new tradition of decorating the tree that is still up in our family room, I added little bunnies for a festive touch. At Valentine’s the tree was covered in kraft and dark red hearts and for St. Patrick’s it was shamrocks with faux stitching around the outer edges. Everything was cut with my Cricut Expressions.

Hais was home for a short weekend visit, so I decided to make some sorority door decorations for her dorm room at the house. The following Cricut Cartridges were used to complete this project:
A Child’s Year
Cherry Limeade
Designer’s Calendar
Easter 2010

Of course, it only seemed fitting to make matching door decs for Hais’ sorority sisters, as well.
