End of Short Attention Span Challenge

I know I really made you wait for this one! But I couldn't announce a winner until I had at least finished my own example. I was trying to use the glitter and glue pad technique but it was really hard (or I wasn't doing it right...). Either way, I finally finished it, and I know it's not great but I really liked what YOU GUYS did with this challenge. You are all bookmark makers from way back! If I had to name a winner, though, (and I don't, but I will anyway) I would give that honor and distinction to Sandi for her old-timey folded paper bookmark. It seemed very Victorian and I really liked it. As your reward, you will get something cool and fun the very next time I see you (and it won't have anything to do with flies!) Thanks for your patience! Now on to the next challenge!

More Planners

OK, OK, I couldn't help it. I just made these planner covers and come on...they are too cute!! (Even if I do say so myself!!) I bought the doggie stamp at the rubberstamp show and used a "stick chick" on the beach themed one. I gotta make some more of these!!

Knittin'sister is knittin' all the time!

Here are some more of the hats that knittin'sister has made. The Christmas hats were made for a friend. There are a ton more, but most of them have been given to charity. She, along with a group of very dedicated ladies, are currently making hats for the cancer treatment center. I should mention that they also helped in the completion of 1,000 hats that are going into Durango, Mexico. Good job ladies!! I tip my hat to you all...

Meet the Newest Sister-Knittin'sister

Let me introduce you to the newest Sister on the Cardsister blog. Cardsisters and Craftysister's Mom or Knittin'sister as she is now known. Knittin'sister has just made these for her two great grand-daughters, Andi and Adah. (I've met them and they are great and grand) They are Craftysisters grand-daughters. (Sooooo lucky!!) She made a hat and shawl for each of the girls and a hat and shawl for their 18" dolls! So cute! You gotta love that! I know I do!

Two Year Weekly Planners

I made these just because I thought they would be cute. I was right. They are. Quick and easy is the only way to go on these. Really fun...The only thing is, I have about thirty of these cute little planners and I don't have that many friends and the new year is right around the corner. I may have to start passing them out at my favorite hangouts...Michael's, HobLob, Big Lots!, Grocery Store, Gas Station, Tuesday Morning, etc...Oh, well, better get busy!!

More Challenge Clips

Here are the clips I made for Katiebug's challenge. They are prima flowers with a glittered brad in the center. They are sprayed with gold perfect pearls, a technique I first saw at the scrapbooking show in San Antonio.

Katiebug Challenge-Paper Clips

These are the paper clips made by Scrappinsister. They are so beautiful with the long tassle and charm on the end? I just love them! (I even scored one for taking the pic!!! Thanks, Scrappinsister!) The chipboard tops on the clips are a nice contrast to the soft, elegant blue ribbon.

2. Glitter MUST be present somewhere in your piece.
3. You are to use EXACTLY one brad or eyelet on your piece.
4. You are to use at least one technique observed in the 2008 Rubberstamp and Scrapbooking Expo- San Antonio.

Good Luck! All entries will be judged by me (so everyone better be REALLY nice to me this week!)

Road Trip

Yes, the sisters did San Antonio big time!! This is a picture of me, techno-sister and craftysister at the Stampin' Up Regionals in San Antonio! We had a blast! A big, huge thank you to techno-sister for the invite-it was AWESOME! We learned a lot of new techniques and I can't wait to give them a go! (That's for you, craftysister!!)
