Happy New Year!
See, when I started this blog I was a "stay at home" crafter...er...Mom. When we moved back home to SC a year and half ago I decided that I wanted to take some "me" time. Then one day....out of the blue I woke up and decided....I want to go back to work. And that is exactly what I did at the most inopportune time of the year.....the holidays! Yes, I know I don't know how to do anything the easy way. Add to that Grandmaw having to go in the hospital and running back and forth the NC EVERY weekend. See, told ya, never easy. So, I started a little temp gig thinking "well by the time this job ends it will be summer, I will have extra $$ for more DeNami goodies and all will be right with the world". Pffft, right! See, just one week after starting the temp thing, another company found me with a "real, full time, work everyday, not gonna be over by the summer, job". I listened to them, thought....nah - they aren't gonna hire me. Yeah, right because as you are reading this post, I am sitting in Chicago, at corporate HQ in my NEW JOB! Woot woot! I am just here for the week for "training" and then I will be back in SC spending time supporting a two facilities here (in case you are wondering what I do, I am a recruiter). And now that the holidays are over, I have more of a regular routine and I have made myself some "crafty time" - I will be back posting a little more on the regular (can you hear that sigh of relief from Tina? She can take a break too and not have to come up with something every day - HA)
So in honor of a New Year and new things, I came up with this card:
Its hard to see with my picture but I stamped the sparkles with Versa Mark to add a little something extra. And the pink sparkles just have a wee bit of pink glitter to give it a little shimmer. And the 2012 - well those are individual stamps that are non Denami but in my defense Denami doesn't have fonts and numbers soo....I think I can get away with it. AND those whiskers? Yeah, that would be Fat Jack. He insisted on being in EVERY picture I was taking so I just decided to not fight it! (I think he's been a little jealous of the flamingo if you ask me)
Stamps used: D98 Sparkles, N49 Happy New Year.
Now, I am not one for New Year's resolutions BUT I think I am going to make a crafty one - so my New Year's resolution is to try something new (a new idea, a new technique, something) at least once every two weeks or so. I think that is one I will be able to keep.
Now tell us, did you make a resolution?
Please leave me a comment and let me know what you think....good or bad....or even better - what would you have done differently??...crafty minds wanna know!
