More Christmas Cards


In the evenings I like to spend time with my husband, and as he enjoys his sports, it's in the livingroom.  So I've started cross stitching small images that can be placed on cards.  In an evening I can finish one image, so I've got a few to sell now.

Remember to come by to Vintage Coop (In Sault Ste. Marie at the bottom of Church Street behind the Floater Plane Museum) tomorrow to see a lot of beautiful items for sale (gift ideas anyone?) and then get a card from to finish off the gift!

Christmas Card Frenzy

Hello all!

I've been frantically making cards the last few weeks.  Not our family cards of course, I've still to make THOSE.  I sent off my mom's cards to her last week and I've been finishing off cards to sell at the Church Street Coop this Saturday.  I'll be there all day from 10-4 with my cards and other items I have made.  Come by if you get a chance!  We're located at the start of Church Street behind the Floatplane Museum.

One of the projects I've been working on is helping a friend of mine here in the SOO to do some stamping.  She's quite the artist and even created a series of canvases a few years ago.  I used these images as a starting point for her to stamp on.  She's created quite a few cards and sold a few too!  I've gotten her permission to use her images as a starting point for some of my cards. 

Another person I've been working with is Sandra with Clay It Forward.  I really like the idea of making a piece of art in exchange for a completed piece.  She also uses her donations to help bring attention to other non profit groups. 

So I combined both in a series of really pretty cards if I do say so myself! 

Hope to see you at the Church Street Coop on Saturday!

Christmas Card Chaos

Hello all!

I'm in the middle of Christmas card assembly for my mom's cards and at the end of the days I fins myself thinking of simple cards.  Though, maybe not so simple, as they take an evening to complete....  I'm talking about Zentangle. 

When we first got into the house back in March, I had no access to my craft supplies and started to go stir crazy.  So I went and picked up some pens, tiles, adhesive and card/envelope sets.  I wanted to make some thank you cards for our realtor and others who helped during this process. 

I made a few more, but sent them off before photographing them. 
I'll post more cards this week of the cross stitch cards I've been creating...
