A long time....

October 11, 2010 - 8:32pm

I feel like I am saying this a lot. It's been a long time since I have posted anything on here.

Life has been crazy.

My husband and I are expecting our first baby in February and we have spent our free time getting other projects done around the house before then. It didn't help that I spent the first trimester of my pregnancy sleeping a lot. That took up a lot of time, too! :)

So, I am going to try to write a few posts that I have had saved up and do my best to post less sporadically. And I have a really special one coming tomorrow...one that I have been asked to post a number of times! You'll love it!

But we'll see how good I am at that once the baby arrives!

Happy crafting!

Glitter Makes Everything Better

October 21, 2010 - 8:33pm

I sometimes don't have the time I would like to make a card from scratch for someone. So I usually have some store bought cards saved up in my stash. One of the simplest things to do to these cards to add a little special touch to them, is to add glitter.

These two cards I just added some glitter to. The first one I added dots of glitter and the second one I added glitter to the stems.

These pictures don't do these cards justice at all. I couldn't get the colors to look right. But take my word for it, glitter added that special touch I was hoping for.

So keep this little trick in your bag of goodies for those times when you are crunched for time, but want something a little more special.

I have also added glitter to a whole set of cards and gave them as gifts. People love how they turn out and you'll be glad you added a personal touch to them.

Happy crafting!
