Lazy Summer Days...

The time is just flying by... I feel like I haven't done much lately, although I have a few projects going at once... I've actually been busy making cards. I've made 3 cards over the last week or so, but I forgot to take pictures of 2 of them. Oops!! Fortunately, I was able to get this picture of David and the card I made for him for getting his PhD.


Something you don't see too often... David actually smiling in lab! Lol :) He's been working his butt off for the last few years, so it's really great to have this picture. It's been a hard, long road. I guess most research is!

My boss called me up about 2 hours before the event and wanted me to pick up a card. I made one instead, but only had an hour to do it!! And you know me... it takes hours of thinking for me to even begin to create something... lol :) This card was pretty simple- except for I am really particular about using the embossing as a background. I have to have exactly the same number of dots (I used the swiss dot folder) on each side of the text!! I think I almost annoy myself sometimes! And I was super lucky that I picked up that ribbon along the edge at Michael's earlier that morning because that's the only navy ribbon I had!

Last night I finish this fouffy shelf.

As you can tell, I love mirabou! And pearls. And rhinestones. And shimmer.

Here it is holding some of my supply jars and vintage lace.



Pretty flowers!
It almost looks Christmas-y, don't you think? I want to make one in pink, but there is no pearl pink paint. Well, I haven't seen any at the stores... I might just have to make my own. I love the pearl paints- they really cute-n things up. Hehe, yes, I am making up my own words today. This is what happens when you don't blog for a while! lol! Have a wonderful day :)
