A Little Rain

Hello! Oops, didn't mean to desert my blog for a week. Sometimes life just gets in the way. Nothing major going on, just been very busy. I have gone to a cooking class to learn how to make Baby Cakes, taught two Copic classes, working on some card sets for a couple of upcoming birthdays, working on kitchen projects, reorganizing kitchen stuff, visiting a friend in the hospital, celebrated Valentine's Day and rewatchched a lot of episodes of Walking Dead. One of my childhood friends had moved to the area back last summer and his living situation fell through so he has been living with us since October. He finally found something affordable so I have been turning that room back into my guest bedroom and getting it redecorated too. I haven't even had enough time to sit at my craft table for very long, much less get something photographed! 

Recently I posted pictures of the things that I have been doing in my kitchen and I have still been working on that some. I decided I needed new drawer and cabinet pulls and that involved three trips to two different Hobby Lobbys to complete. I am also working on a couple of needlepoint projects to hang in there. I used to do a lot of things like that, but it has been forever since I have picked up needle and thread to sew on anything other than a button or on a card. I used some images that listed them as stamps. If I had read the directions, I would have noticed that they weren't simply iron-ons and that they were reusable. I would have also seen that the directions said to protect your ironing board before ironing it onto the cloth. Anyway, I am now the proud owner of a brand new ironing board pad! 

I did find time to make this little card using a Penny black image. I love this little bear, he reminds me of Paddington Bear and I love that little chick showing off his little flower. I used papers from The Paper Studio and colored the image with Copics. 

Thanks for visiting today!
