Should old sketches not be forgotten. Our latest challenge was to find an old sketch and come up with a project for it. I went back to May and found this sketch.
For my project I decided to make a little treat box with matching card. I really love how fresh and clean this turned out. And even though I used "Christmas" patterned paper this doesn't look Christmasy to me. I haven't decided if I will fill the circle on the treat box or not. I really like the way it looks right now but we shall see if that changes.
This has been a great year. I certainly feel totally blessed. I couldn't ask for more. I have all that I NEED and pretty much everything that I want.
My crafting goals for 2011 are:
1. to submit to calls more often and hopefully be published
2. send out more cards for every occasion
3. use what I have - stop hoarding
4. related to #3 - think before buying more
5. try new techniques and participate in more challenges
This is all for now but I am sure I will add to that with time.
God bless you all in the new year! May it be fruitful and the best yet.
