I am titling this piece Fresh Start for a reason, but before I get into it I want to thank everyone I met at the the craft this last weekend it was a big success. Okay, now about the fresh start. Have you ever walked into your craft room or as I like to call it my studio and said this isn’t working? I did this late last night, but was too tired to do anything. Well, this morning I got up and torn the room apart. I rearranged furniture and my work area. One problem was my blog planner was getting buried. Now I have a desk just for it and typing. I am not totally there, but getting there.
Now I have a very important piece of information. Everyone who has signed up for my newsletter will be receiving a special newsletter on Wednesdays for the next twelve weeks. This newsletter is part of a Coop I belong to and it will have instructions for doing Christmas cards, projects including tags. This not just my creations, but other creative people sharing their inspiration. So make sure you are signed up for the regular newsletter to be part of the Christmas newsletter.
Here is a Christmas card as I am in the mood to start them. You know the Holidays will be here before we know it. So let us get a jump on them and you will be able to relax. Our weather is cooling down slightly, but not sweater weather. However I chose to use the new Cable Knit Dynamic Textured Embossing Folder. Just add the moose and you have an adorable card.
