Business Cards

Wow! Two posts in one day and I only have an hour to spare. I've never posted twice in one day.

Anywho, I thought I would share my new business cards. I don't have them yet and that's partly because I haven't ordered them yet but they are designed. I'm really proud of these. I think they are designed pretty well for being an amateur. Tell me what you think!

I wanted to create something to drudge up some business around town. I really want to get out on my own and make this a full time thing. I know that's going to take some time and pretty unlikely but I can dream and I have to start somewhere!

Mirror, Mirror on the Tree...

While nosing around in other people's blogs this morning I stumbled across these fabulous ornaments! I wanna make them. They are so modern and will be sure to add some shine to your tree. If you happen to be heading out for a Christmas party then you can just do a quick makeup check from your tree ornament. Ha!

Find the tutorial for these ornaments here. She also has other neat ideas for sewing and crafting.

Ok. Tonight I'm posting a major fail. I didn't realize how hard it was to roll paper to make flowers. Really? I thought I would just draw a spiral, cut it out and ta-da! No. Not that easy. I don't know if I didn't follow the instructions correctly or if I need a heavier paper. I used newspaper and that just didn't work. It also didn't help that the one flower I did make...the dog kind of ruined it by trying to eat it. I guess he wanted to help.

Here is what I was trying to accomplish.

You can find this photo and the tutorial here. This gal's blog is amazing! Check it out.

I just wanted to type a little something. I'm not exactly sure what to write so I'm kinda just rambling. I'm not tired and I don't wanna just lay in bed and watch TV.

I have a lot of photos of cards and ornaments to post but that task is a bit time consuming for me these days. I have to take a picture, download on my computer, edit it, save it to a jump drive and then save it to my husband's Mac. I would do it all on my computer but I have a virus and my laptop is about to crash. Not only do I have a virus on my laptop but my laptop doesn't have the internet. My husband and I only have one USB thingy for the internet. So, posting is more like a chore now rather than something I enjoy doing. I think that my change once Christmas comes around because I'm getting Photoshop for Mac! Yay! I'm pretty excited about that but I have no idea how to use it. My sick laptop only has Photoshop Elements 8. I barely know how to use that. LOL! If anyone out there knows any good reference books or tutorials on how to use it, send them my way. I'm going to need all the help that I can get.

I'm not really sure that any of you people care out there why I haven't been posting as much or what I'm up to in my life at this point in time. It's just fun to put it out there to think that someone reads my blog and finds it interesting. All I really want is for people to see my cards an other creations. I only have 6 it can't be that interesting.

Its amazing how looking a bright computer screen in a dark bedroom can make my eyes heavy. Oh my.

Anyway, my cousin and I have seriously been thinking about starting our own business. She wants to start a bakery and I want to start a handmade goods/scrapbooking store. It doesn't really go together but I think it could work. Unfortunately, she works some weird hours and doesn't have Saturdays off. It's hard for us to plan. I even made her a logo and everything! For those who are reading this you should really wish us luck and pray that the good Lord blesses us with an opportunity! We would both be doing something that we really love and it would make us soooooo happy!

Hopefully, I will be having some pictures up soon of the newest things. So hang tight. Thanks for reading ya'll. Enjoy your night and leave comments. I love those!

O, Christmas Tree!

This is not your traditional Christmas colors. I like that. Red and green is just so...blah. When I think of Christmas, I think of bright colors. Pinks, blues and white. This card is inspired by Mojo Monday's newest challenge. I thought this tree stamp would be perfect for the sketch. Here's the sketch:

Here's the final result:

If you're interested you should go try this sketch out and enter the contest! It's worth a shot. What do you have to lose?
