Stampotique Challenge

Image
Hi everyone, I hope you are all doing well. 
Well, got myself into a mess again. I ordered some stamps, then ordered more and more.. Yikes.. But, I love these stamps! I have decided after my orders come in, I'm not buying anymore stamps until I get rid of the stamps I don't use... LOL
Well anyway, found a new Facebook group and wow! a lot of very talented people there. Then, I found the challenge blog, Stampotique
This one is special too, it's their 200th challenge. Since I got new stamps, I decided to make a post card type card for it. I was Inspired by Rachel Black.. she's an amazing artist.. you can find her on YouTube. So, here it is: Thank you for stopping by Hugs, Norma Jean

Pocket Letters

Image
Hi everyone,
It's been awhile since I posted.. Now I'm into pocket letters. Luckily, I don't have to go out and buy stuff to make them. I have everything I need... LOL They are like ATC's put into trading card pockets. Boy, like any project, some very talented people out there.  Today I received this one from my friend Cassandra.  I love it so much.. It is much more beautiful in person. Front of it; isn't it just beautiful?
Back of it full of wonderful goodies I'm so happy!

12 Tags of 2015 - February

Hi everyone, 
I'm back this time with my try with the "12 Tags of 2015" with Tim Holtz. I used a lot of what I had on hand and found free printables on Pinterest. I made my arrow with paper using my Silhouette cameo and added inks to make it look vintage.. Well, at least I hope it does.. lol Thanks for stopping by Hugs, Norma Jean

Valentine Treat Boxes

Image
Hi everyone, 
I hope you are all doing well. I've been making some treat boxes that are so cute. I got this idea from Brigit, all the info is on her blog. She is one of the most creative people I know! She is such an inspiration to me. These are from my favorite SVG company, Mary and Leo. They have the best SVG designs out there in the craft world. Here is the link SVGCUTS, this file is free.

Hi everyone, 
I'm back with another Inspiration Wednesday, an online workshop with Donna Downey. This week I wasn't feeling it at first, but after I started I had fun making these pages. Thank you for stopping by Hugs, Norma Jean

Valentine Box Cards

Image
Hi everyone, I hope everyone is doing well. I am not feeling so well, so I took the day off work. I'm making some box cards from SVGCuts. Nobody can design box cards like Mary can, she truly adds so much  detail to them and makes them easy to make. 
The mailbox one is my favorite! Thanks for stopping by Hugs, Norma Jean

Inspiration Wednesday

Image
Hi everyone, As you can see, I didn't do too well with the Doodle-a-Day Challenge. I don't have the time to do it everyday with work and all.. but I will keep trying because it's fun!
I did find something else I can do. A friend had posted about an online class she is taking and it looked like a lot of fun and I feel I can learn a lot.
It's called Inspiration Wednesday with Donna Downey. This is my first week. You can buy or make your own journal. I decided to make my own because I also hoard fabric!

First Week of Doodles

Image
Hi everyone!! Well, today is a sad day for me.. I have to go back to work Monday after 16 days off.. lol
I'm going to do my Doodle Post for the week on Sundays. This is my first time actually doing a year long challenge and I really want to stick with  it. Some will be big, some will be small..  I should have went and bought a book to keep them  all in. I think I might on my way home from work tomorrow.. I'm finding this to be very relaxing.
So, here is my first week of doodles: I love doing the flowers. I like the zentangle part, too. I'm learning, so hopefully by the end of the year I will get better at it. Thank you for stopping by  Hugs,  Norma Jean


DOODLEDAYS 365 Challenge

Image
Hi everyone, 
Wow! I can't believe I haven't blogged in over 6 months. I haven't been crafting lately. During the mid-summer we did a lot of painting and fixing up the house. Still have more to do, but it's coming along. I've been enjoying the Christmas shut down at work, 2 full weeks off, but it's coming to an end and that is making me sad! I have enjoyed not working a lot. First week was busy getting things ready for Christmas and this week my son and granddaughter have been here. So, not getting much done with a very active 4 year old! I love her so much.
The reason for this blog post is that I noticed a challenge on my friends Facebook page that she is participating in and it caught my interest. I thought I would join the fun.. 


It's calledDoodle Days 365 Challenge.Everyday for the year you're supposed to doodle something. Now I do not draw, at all, so this will be very challenging for me. I'm hoping this will help me become better at drawing and be…
