FWF & organizing....still

Hi everyone! It's FRIDAY again!
I was all set to make a card for FWF until I realized I'm watching my great niece today. She'll be here till some time tomorrow. That is if the snow doesn't cancel everything. Anyway, she loves to paint birdhouses but I forgot to get one. So, I did the next best thing. I made her a bunch of coloring pages using my Unity stamps. I stamped them all with StazOn so she can watercolor them if she wants.
When she's done coloring the images I'll add a cover and back in the color of her choice and put the pages onto rings.I think she'll have fun with this.
This second photo is what I've been working on for weeks now. The boxes are full pictures that I'm trying to get together and sort through. Most of them are done. The book with the pictures of my niece is another organizing project. I collected all the school & portrait pics I could find of each of my family members. I inherited lots of pics from my Mom. They are all put together in this binder. I mounted them all on white card-stock and put them in page protectors. No patterned paper, embellies. Nothing but photos. I might eventually add some patterned papers. It would use up LOTS of scraps. But it's ok for now. The other open album and the closed one are the school books for my kids. I thought my son's was almost done until I found more pics in those boxes. 
Don't forget to check out the Unity blog for the FWF, new releases, and a SALE!

Another week has just flown by! I'm not feeling very creative lately. Most every thing I tried making hit the circular file. This card I did without thinking. I love the Donna Downey stamps because they work no matter what. 
All you need is a stamp and a sentiment and call it done. 

That's it for me today. It's almost dinner time. And I might take a look at Unity's garage sale......

Have a great week!

Hi everyone!
 I haven't done much creating lately. I'm trying to ORGANIZE. It's a work in progress ;) I tried entering FWF last week but Mr. Linky was hiding from me. If you'd like to see the canvas I made, look here. So here's this week's entry.

For this weeks card I used the Dec 12 KOM. I love the stamps in this kit! Sorry for the photo. I can't seem to get it any clearer. Maybe because I stamped it on photo paper. 
Anyway....Have you checked out the Unity Angie's Birthday sale yet? 
40% off!
And I LOVE the new AngieGirl stamps!! They're all FABULOUS!
Andi & Lizzie I think are my favorites. 
Well DD is up and I'm sure she'll want to go shopping since she doesn't have to work.

Happy Birthday Angela!!

FYI: Sue's Cricut and Crafts has started the Christmas challenges. The theme for January is trees so get out your stamps and play. The rules are a little different but there are still prizes to be won. Check it out:  Sue's Cricut and Crafts
You can use any company's products so get those Unity trees inked up :)

an Inspired FWF

Hi everyone! Hope you all have a fantastic holiday. Mine was nice but I'm glad that it's over. I already took down my decorations. Now I can get back to crafting. 

While hopping along on FWF I came across Gwen's blog..Windchimes and Lilacs. Go look :) She made these beautiful canvases with a pattern for a girl that she found from this blog.. I waned to try it but not on a 12x12. Soooo, I shrunk the pattern and made it fit on a 5x7 canvas.

I really enjoyed making this even though it's not as well done as Gwen's. I used a few Unity stamps on the background. The words were done with foam alpha stamps that I've had forever. 

Have an awesome week :)

Congrats to Karen (Karey2005)!! She won for commenting on my blog last week.
