Making lemonade out of lemons

I was trying a new technique with memory mists, and wasn't really too happy with it. I liked the colors I got from the sample, though, so I cut it up into a bunch of little squares, mixed them up, and ended up with several cards out of the deal. I love the card! It's so fun to be able to take something not to your liking and turn it into something beautiful.

Enjoy the day! Spring is on the way!

Busy meeting deadlines!

I've been busy crafting, but mostly more thank you notes and some projects on a deadline. One of those projects for a deadline was a book for my dear friend and mentor, Dr. L. He is having some health problems, and I decided to spend last weekend finding lots of photos of us together and send him a special package. Since he's received it now, I can share it with you. The pictures are from his retirement party (left hand page) and my wedding (right hand page).

My other projects for a deadline are submissions to the Great Lakes Art Showcase. After the show, I can share them with you. Suffice it to say, I'm pretty darn excited by them! I tried some new techniques and folks who have seen them in person have given me good feedback.
