December was a busy month, with preparations for Christmas, work parties and events for our clients, and just general busy-ness.
Now, it's the new year, and time for a fresh start. I love the possibilities of the new year- so much potential, and who knows where the year will take us?
I have a few crafty resolutions, including:
Try to update my blog at least once per week.
Get crafty at least once or twice a week- one of my non-crafty resolutions is to try to avoid snacking at night, and this might help with that, too!
Use what I have, including designer paper, stamps that haven't made it out of their packaging and other misc items.
I also want to stamp each image I have to create an index of sorts.
Now, onto crafty goodness!
The House Mouse and Friends blog had a new challenge posted this week, and I've really enjoyed playing along the last couple of months- the challenge this time around is to celebrate anything new... and I am celebrating a NEW STAMP!
My friend M and I headed to our fave store for some post-Christmas bargains, and I came home with not one, but two HM stamps... This little guy got inked about 10 minutes after I got home.
The image was stamped with Momento black ink and coloured with Copics. I love the background paper- it's La banquise paper, called Vent Polaire. I cut the card blank at 5 inches square, and cut the silver mirror stock at the same. the Vent Polaire paper was cut at 4.75 and the House Mouse image was cut at approx 3 inches, with the silver backing 1/4 of an inch bigger. The sentiment is a sticker.
My mother in law is here for a visit, and this little guy will make his way home with her next week.
I've been busy in the craft area this week- there will be more coming shortly!
