Here's a simple card for the "Fast Track - I Spy ... something white and glistening" swap over at The Stamping Pad. I wanted to keep it simple, so used the snowflake cuttle bug folder on SU Shimmery White card stock. Then used some blue ribbon with snowflakes, metallic blue paper, more shimmery white for the oval, and some skittlz from pez-a-doodle designs. Hope the recipient likes it! (Scan is a bit light.)

Cleaning up electronic files and other misc stuff

Hi friends! Yesterday I helped Michelle clean and organize her craft room. She had a good start on it, but then ran into a brick wall... So I went and helped her finish it up. She is so excited! Her room looks so nice and she knows where everything is. Now if only I can do the same with my closet. I've been wanting to get in there and clean out my 'work' clothes since I retired and shouldn't need them all. Well one of these days it will get done. Anyway, this is what her cabinet looks like now. There is enough room for expansion if she decides, and she has her beading items stored in there as well. Other larger items that wouldn't fit in here are organized in the closet and desk. She also has a couple of paper organizers. Looks rather nice!

A Wooden Spoon

This is a spoon I made out of Apple wood. Didn't it turn out just gorgeous?

Take care, jj

Card for the Fast Track Swap - I Spy...A Carrot Nose over at the Stamping Pad

This card is for the Fast Track Swap - I Spy ... A Carrot Nose.

I learned how to make the snow man from Sharon Fields - a stamper from the WOWStampers group I'm on. He's such a cutie and I've since made a family of them - mom, dad, and kid.

Hope you enjoy!


A New Year

I am totally new at this, but will try to post a note or two during the month. And add some new photos at least! Here in the Upper Peninsula, we've had typical snowy weather. I've been busy making up some cards, earrings, and carving spoons. It is so nice to get back to doing my crafts. Hope everyone is having a wonderful week. take care, jj
