I loooove the Dozens. I think I say that everytime. Okay, I know I do. But seriously, the lil bits and lovely pieces in the kist just rock my socks every month. =) Here's what I made with the June/July kit. You can check out the other girls' fab designs, too, up in the gallery - and you can grab a kit here. Up:And I was on a card hitch, this time...he he. These lil guys will be up in my Etsy shop this week - slowly, I'll be updating one a day. So keep checking the store blog for release info or the shop itself. First, a super-kitschy card and matching houndstooth envelope I made from that lovely patterned paper: These little flower guys were made from the chipboard flowers in the kit, backed with patterned paper, aged, stamped. I made lil envelopes for these guys, too. =)And this lil guy (just love the fun summery colors in this kit!):Wow! Where to even begin?? I have so much to talk about here...lol. Where did that weekend go? We went to see Wall E this weekend - yay! It was sooo cute, awesome animation and design, loved it to bits! Loved the mix of old music in there, too, and the end credits were great! Finally - a new not-rehashed already storyline that wasn't about animals. Ahhh...Not to mention the awesome short they showed before the movie - fab! We also stopped in at this really cool art exhibit; Brave Art Show - it rocked. One of the best, coolest showcases of art I've seen in a while - it was on our way to the movie!
It was kind of overcast all weekend, but still warm and sunny, too. We went for beach walks, hunted around for baby duckies and swans. It turns out the swans never hatched *sniff* (though I swore I saw them!), and all the baby ducks have mostly been eaten by Carp (giant fish that we saw jumping all over the lake). So sad!! Who knew that fish ate ducks? Oh my...anyway, the baby fluffy raccoons we saw made us forget the missing animal woes..they were lovely and oh-so fluffy! =)
Ummm...what else? The wonderful Paislee blog is hopping with CHA release peeks - Got to play with mine yesterday and they are just amazing!! Go see! And check back in a few days for some Paislee fun here...=) And Rachel posted a lovely peek at the paper line that's in the newest Red Velvet Kit this month - so yummy! They go on sale tomorrow in the kit Etsy shop. =) Sooo excited for that one!
Busy finishing lists, sending out a bunch of mail, calling banks and doctors, banking...listening to renos all day (our building is in a shambles - they're ripping out and replacing all the pipes, there's meetings about when they'll work on our pipes...etc.) On Friday when I got home I realized they had changed the lock in the front door and I was locked out, thank goodness Z was home! Turns out they forgot to give us the new keys...hah. Lovely. Poor Z has to listen to them pounding all day and today they shut off the water...=(
Anyway, enough to look at today? he he...Link-o-rama, up there! Hope everyone is well! I have lots to share, including some yummy new Monster Notepads I just got done - oh yeah, so excited for em! And some embroidery, too. Yay! Hopefully today I can finally do the blog rounds and edit Tofino pictures...lol. Happy day! =)
