Exciting News!

Since my last post I have been busy, trying to get back in my little crafting world, without much success, due to some home improvement projects, that have taken more time than we suspected,
however I have been able to do some crafts as gifts, but end up giving them away before I have time to share or post.

I finally snapped a quick picture of my last project, which was a gift for my grandma's 79th birthday just last week,
My Grandma Loves to play scrabble so I thought it befitting to make her a gift with the tiles. I did a quick search on Pinterest- at least I intended it to be quick, but if you're a fellow "pinner, you understand how that goes one thing leads to another and your rabbit trailing, anyhow I found some great inspiration!
I purchased a set of scrabble tiles through Amazon, so as not to ruin the game, and to have plenty tiles for future projects, Then I found a 5x7 shadow box at Hobby Lobby.
Because I don't have the best handwriting I chose to print the words, after a couple tries I got the letter spacing just right to be able to fit the tiles and still be able to read the message, then I took some of my large background stamps, masking off the area's I didn't want to stamp, then added a few embellishments to make it pop.
But that wasn't the exciting news!

I am VERY EXCITED! (if you can't tell, by the caps) to announce in the next couple of weeks my new online store, as a Close to My Heart Consultant, so keep a lookout for my Grand Opening Online Party,  they have a wide variety of wonderful products for both scrapbooking and cardmaking, that I can't wait to share!

So if I don't manage to do another post before then, I will be back soon with the announcement and the new link.

Hey there would you mind sharing which blog platform you're using?
I'm looking to start my own blog soon but I'm having a
tough time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs
and I'm looking for something unique.
P.S Apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

Hello there! I know this is kinda off topic however I'd figured I'd ask.
Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest writing
a blog article or vice-versa? My site covers a lot of the same subjects as yours and I feel we
could greatly benefit from each other. If you are interested feel free to shoot me an e-mail.

I look forward to hearing from you! Fantastic blog
by the way!
