TIOT recipe challenge

good morning!!!

Pezza had her first day fo school yesterday – loved it OF COURSE.  remember this is the kid who at 2 was throwing a fit because i never let her go to school and i never let her go to daycare 😛

she is determined to grow her bangs out so she looks like a ragamuffin and yes i know her socks don’t match.  the child flat refuses to wear matching socks and i figure i have bigger more important battles to worry about KWIM???

i loved reading the comments left regarding my disaster of a studio.  and yes it was a purple/plum colored LARGE mug on the edge of the table by the window – y’all are good!  i would post finished pics except it is still not finished 😛  but i DO have a winner of that fantastic book from CQ Products!!!

VERNETTA!!!  congrats my friend!  i have actually been meaning to email you anyway 😛  i know you’ll have fun with the book!

my organization bug went on vacation yesterday…hoping it is planning on reappearing today….i am certainly not done…

Have you sent in a submission for Through the Craft Room Door’s big holiday bonus issue???  we have gotten lots of things but we would love to have more to look through – especially in categories that are NOT cards!!!

  • Fall home decor/table decor
  • Harvest time gifts
  • ideas for gifts that make stuff – things you can give to a fellow crafter or to kids to encourage them to get creative
  • winter holiday home decor
  • ornaments
  • handmade gifts

in addition – we are very interested in winter holidays OTHER than christmas as well so all can be represented! 

calls are also up for the nov/dec issue!!

please go to our web page for all of the details: Through the Craft Room Door

sfytt090410i have a fun TIOT post for ya today. i used the sketch over at Jen’s.  in addition i am submitting this to other challenges:

Pile It On: layers
Papertake Weekly: Just The One
Paperplay – Autumn color scheme

suzanne challenged us to use 2 store products, 2 papers, and 2 embellishments so here is what i have some up with (no stamp but pretty just the same!!!)

crafters workshop stencils,perfect pearls

my 2 papers come from the amazing Basic Grey Capella 6×6 pad – such soft romantic colors! then i made my third panel using the Flower Frenzy crafters workshop stencil and the gorgeous new colors coming to the Perfect Pearls family. susana should have these in stock for you very soon! the technique i used is part of a new video i will be posting here tomorrow! it shows lots of different things you can do with the Crafter’s Workshop stencils. the little chipboard bird is part of the Birds with Cages Maya Road mini chipboard set – these little sets make such handy embellishments. he is also covered with mica powder but he has Dreamweavers mica powder on him. and that super luscious flower? a new prima from the Roosevelt Collection – LOVIN these!

Susana has been adding new goodies to the store like crazy – be sure and check it all out!
have a fabby day!
