You can tell I've been busy when my blog starts collecting cobwebs. ;p
Today is the final day of my class, Got Sketch 105. (The classroom remains open until April 30.) Needless to say, I've been preoccupied with sketches, sketches, sketches. Now, I may take a short break to prepare for my sister's arrival here in two weeks (and do some spring cleaning). Our first meeting! Lots of family time in the next few weeks with more family visiting from California.
So I am doing a quick post - a winter layout done for Fiskars. I am hoping this is the last snowflake I actually see, since I am so ready for spring. I'm ready to put my winter clothes away!
These snowflakes were cut using my favorite craft knife: The fingertip craft knife.
November is Project-a-Day month at Fiskars. You must check the site out daily for continuous inspiration! This month is all about handcrafted holiday gift ideas for us crafty folks.
Today's project is one I created that is inspired by the Bella bag in my Boutique. It's a smaller version for the special young girls in your lives. I've also added the cutest flower pin that is removable and can be used as a brooch.
As you can see, this one is for my daughter Lauren. Isn't it adorable?!
How would you like to win one of my handmade boutique items? Now is your chance to enter a drawing for 2 giveaways! Just post a comment right now and I will select random winners to be recipients a camera strap slipcover and a custom key fob.
Leave your posts no later than Sunday, November 15. I will announce the winners shortly after. Good luck!!
