How’s your busy week going?

Sadly I have been so busy the last few days I haven’t even gotten down to my craft area!  Tonight I promise to get down there after I do a kid drop off and pick up a table for my Girl Scout booth sale this weekend.  I promised myself I’d do some Valentine’s Day cards with the new embossing folders I got for Christmas.  I love dry embossing!  It creates a great texture to the paper and sometimes adds a great picture.  I’ll try to post a demo about embossing – it’s actually what started me off into card making.

This weekend I have a booth sale at Big Lots with my Girl Scout troop – can’t stop selling cookies – trying to get to the Twin Tower Memorial, NYC this summer. Plus I have to prep felt heart purses for next month’s meeting.  The scouts want to sew so after being inspired by another scout’s foam stapled purse it came to me – felt heart purses – simple but so many sewing techniques that can be shown.  Buttons, lace, felt, stitches – I have to pull it all together.

For those of you who don’t know I’m a HUGE sew-er!  My mom use to sew my pjs and the woman who watched me when I was a child made all of her kids’ clothes, our prom dresses, and her daughter’s wedding gown.  It’s kind of in my blood.  I’ve made tons outfits for the girls and their American Girl dolls.  Strangely enough the popular technique for card making is sewing on card stock.  I hope to show you something tonight!  Ok bus is coming.  Hope you all have a GREAT day!
