This is my entry for Sarah Bertein's Christmas Card Contest. I was thrilled that she created the contest and couldn't wait to receive my "kit"! She sends a blank white card, couple of circles and scallop-circles and 2 pieces of decorative paper. That's it; so simple.
This contest made me step out of my routine of Christmas-card-making and try some different elements. I've never made a card like this one and it inspired me to create others that are similar -- love that!
If you get a chance, hop over the facebook.com/sarahcrafts today and put in a good word for my card! Check out the other entries too! Lots of good ones!

This was a fun album to make! I was really in a creative groove when I put it together. I just love it when things flow and new ideas come together! Created from sturdy chipboard and covered in warm colored paper, this album has many surfaces ready to be decorated. Add your own pictures and journal and you've got a keepsake. Makes an unforgettable gift!
3 Rings on both sides of album are embellished with fun ribbons. The front leaves room for a title, picture, or date.
The first panel on the inside has plenty of room for journaling. The middle section has a file folder with pockets, tags and more room for pictures. The panel on the right has multiple flaps, hinged at the top. Add photos and journal on both sides of each flap and you can add LOTS of greatness to this album!
The back is blank along with one other back panel. Add a great photo or leave it blank, you decide!
Please visit my Etsy store for more information on this product and others.

She's also offering free shipping from her Etsy shop, Roadside Photographs. Does it get any better than that!?

A friend of mine just returned from a trip to Croatia. Look what she brought me! The BEST olive oil I've ever tasted and a sachel of lavendar! Thoughtful, eh!? The olive oil tastes like OLIVES not just oil. Such a rich flavor! The lavendar is unlike any I've smelled before. Really sweet and yummy!

Oh joy! My craftroom is starting to come together! Here's a picture of the corner of my new desk (made from 2 doors). My desk features the following:
Fun pink & brown photo album I found for a steal!
Fun vase from my Mom.
"Happeez" clips that I'll eventually stick to the wall, or something, to display projects. Found 'em at a local store, Noteworthy (AKA: http://www.nightowlpapergoods.com/).
Green suitcases from http://www.pinklovesbrown.com/
The "Organized & Inspired Scrapbooker" that has helped me organize my space.
Flowers from my wedding.

This part of the book reads "if you aren't naturally inclined to tidy up your space...". That's me! I'm glad that was included in the book because as I look at my handwritten entries/answers, I realize how I need to organize my work table. I need to get ahold of some type of 12x12 bin that isn't very deep and will provide storage for a single page/project.
I'm visual so I like to SEE what I have. Well, that's impossible as a scrapbooker! We accumulate so much stuff! I've got some great ideas for displaying/storing embellishments in clear containers -- I can see them but they're contained! I am also going to use a basket to hold my "new" embellishments. You know the items that you just have to buy at the scrapbook store?! I buy them and then they get shuffled around and I forget about them. I figure I'll leave them in the new basket for a month or so and then put them away. My mind is spinning with ideas! I've got to get some work done in that room! I'll post again real soon!
