"There is one quality that one must possess to win, and that is definiteness of purpose, the knowledge of what one wants, and a burning desire to possess it."

Good Afternoon Crafty World,

Today I just wanted to share a quote I had gotten.  I thought it was very fitting for our "crafty passions" so enjoy and keep "creating." 

...creativity is good for the soul.
Creativity is when your spirit gets a chance to play and express itself.  So whether art, dance, cooking, making music, writing, or creating a garden, let yourself go!  Create!

I have some new projects in the works so I hope to share those with you really soon. Thanks for stopping by to see me.

Stay Crafty!

2013 has been an "ABSOLUTELY AMAZING" year for me so far!  I have LOTS to be thankful & grateful for.  I'm working on some new projects and hope to soon make a business out of doing what I love.  Here's a taste of my latest 8x8  project...

And, there will be more to see so STAY TUNED...

A new item I've purchased is the 10 drawer rolling cart.  I'm sure you all have oogled over them during your shopping visits just as I have.  I found it at Big Lots for $28.  And, that's awesome compared to $50 in Marshalls or $70-$80 in Michaels.

I absolutey love it!  I use it to sort and organize letter stickers, other embellies, and book projects.  To organize my book projects, I'll pic a drawer and put all of the stickers and embellies I want to use for that project and drop it in.  I also include paper up to 8 1/2" X 11".  Then I use a sticky note strip to label the drawers so I know where everything is.  The only bad thing about the cart is that it doesn't fit 12x12 sized paper.  But, I make due.  So here's what my craft space looks like now...

Hello Crafty World,

I hope 2013 has brought everyone exceedingly abundant blessings!  I do want to apologize for being away so long.  I've been real busy finishing up a very extensive project I was working on. It was a military album I did for a long time friend who retired from the Navy.  And, it was beautiful album!!!  He didn't want any of his pages online and I've respectfully obliged him.  So, unfortunately I can't show you any of my work on that project.  But I can share with you the album I used.  It's the Navy album by K & Company.  I ordered it from Amazon then a week later Michael's had it on their shelves in the clearance aisle (had been looking for it there all along and they didn't have it). But here is the gorgeous leather-bound album...
