I'm Back to Finish my Turn

It's me again, here to finish my post from earlier today. By the way, I had my boss take this picture of me and I decided to post it here. Since I don't have anything that's new in my studio I'm going to post some of my favorite projects from the past. All my stuff has been packed away and still is...I haven't created anything in a really long time. I'm having terrible withdrawls...my fingers are itching to do something.Until then enjoy some things from the past .
This little project was one of my favorites when I worked at the Scrappity Do Dah store in Grand Prairie. I was in charge of the make n takes there, and I have to admit it was the best part of my job. I really enjoyed coming up with something new and fun to make once a month. My youngest son is a great artist and this little book was my way of telling him how proud I was of him. I honestly do not know what my kids are going to do with all the things that I have made them. Hopefully, show their kids some day. This was the inside.

I love to go to trunk shows, especially at a rubber stamp store. Me and my best friend Lisa went to a Tim Holtz trunk show at a local rubber stamp store and got to play with his new stamps. This is what we made...needless to say I bought all the stamps that were in this great make n take. I'm a sucker for stamps. And the pair of wings in this project were to die for. Rubber Stamping was my first passion and will probably remain the thing that I am most creative with. I love it!

Can you believe it's August, and i'm already thinking about Christmas. In the process of moving I found this and it just made me want to start making Christmas things. This is a little tree that I made for Christmas last year to add to my tree collection. I love to make Christmas things!!! This year I want to get together with friends (like I did last year) and make handmade Christmas ornaments for my tree. We had a blast.

Well, that's all I have for right now. This weekend I went to a Donna Downey class and made an incredible 12 x 12 album out of two pieces of 12 x 12 chipboard and 12 pieces of 81/2 x 11 paper. I hope to show you in my next post.

Until next time, be good,

Love your stuff Joanna, and I am blessed to have one of those wonderful trees in my guestroom that you made me last year. Love the picture too!

Glad your move went smoothly (other than the ugly theft issue, of course). Can't wait to get you scrappin' again. Your work is always great!

I hope there is a Christmas class or crop in the future of TCS! I'd love it. :)
