Life Happens

Life happens - not a whole lot more needs to be said. We had some family issues pop up unexpectedly and the past few weeks (well, over a month actually) has been untangling all of the "stuff" related to that. I finally had the opportunity to do the promised clean up of my craft room yesterday - and am slowly getting myself back in the groove of being creative and crafty again. I'm hoping to have some new items to share before the end of the month, as well as the large "destash" list of items going up for sale as promised well over a month ago. Sorry guys for the prolonged absence and silence on my end... and I'm back on track again

Blooming Hopscotch Mini Album

I made a smaller envelope mini album last week, and decided to go for a little more "modern" feel.  (I tend to do a lot of 'Shabby Chic' and Vintage).  I really like the finished results, though I still fuss too much, I think, over the embellishment details.  I have to laugh - I had the album base, binding and mats put together in a couple hours and then spent 3 days adding all the rest.  Heh!  The colors and style (somewhat minimalistic) reminded me a lot of my days as a little girl drawing pictures and hopscotch grids with sidewalk chalk - so I decided to name it "Blooming Hopscotch".

Cards - Gifts, Make-and-Takes and Swaps

It's been awhile since I've posted anything and so I thought I'd put together a quick post of some of the cards I've made for my SU Group Meeting Swaps and Make-and-Takes and as gifts for friends and family.  Though I'm not a big card maker, I really enjoy the opportunity to take a break on occasion, to make up some cards.

Life and Crafts

Hey all,

I had really hoped to have a few more posts of completed projects, videos and more up since my last - but life gets hectic.  Really its just been a lot of little things (and a few not so little things) that have  happened/needed attention that all added up to "not much time for crafts".  Thankfully though, it looks like things are finally settling back down again and I'm able to put Whimsical DeeSigns back toward the top of the list once again. Yay!

So without a lot of unnecessary babbling about unrelated stuff - here's at least a little update...

My Etsy store has a bunch of  DESTASH items in it (mostly rubber stamps at the moment), with quite a bit more to follow.  I did some clean-up and reorganizing of my stuff this past month when time permitted, and so I'm clearing out the proverbial craft closet.  If you're looking for some good deals on craft supplies, its probably worth a visit my Etsy shop.  I'll be adding more stuff weekly through the end of the month.  I also have some handmade Card Candy (Embellishments) up for sale as well.

Flutterbyes and Flowers Card Candy

Also have some pretty new items (project) in the works, though not quite ready to share on those yet - but will have pics and post on those, ideally, in the next two weeks.  And some new video+tidbits = vidbits to share, hopefully before the end of the month.

Hope everyone had a great holiday season and for those in colder climates (it's been below zero here a lot lately) - STAY WARM!  More soon.
