First, I need to tell you to run to my website! A bunch of new things were added to the clearance page! Shop now before the items are gone! I also want to mention that there is a wonderful new shipping option that is really affordable. Lots of paper and embellishments at WOWIE prices!!
This year I thought it would be fun to participate in a challenge/class that requires me to take pictures of the every day things. I really liked and decided upon Ella Publishing's Take Twelve. I was super excited when the 12th came, and I have to tell you that I missed some photo opportunites. I saw my friend Amber that day - and should have taken a photo. I went out to lunch with my son - and should have taken a picture of the two of us (rather than just the food!). So already I am learning from this class - and I love it!
One of my resolutions every year is to work on any crafting materials I have in my stash. So I used some "old" Close To My Heart that I have been hoarding (and I truly have been hoarding this paper). This was the Key to My Heart paper from a January special, and I think it was either 3 or 4 years ago that I got it. How silly is that?!
I printed off all of my pictures in a 3x3 format. I used the tags that came with the Take Twelve kit to tell a little something about each photo.
#1 & #2 - I wake up to these two pets everyday. In fact, they choose their spots in the bed, and I end up sleeping where this is room! I know that some of you pet lovers will understand this silliness!
#3 - New cookbook to continue on my WW journey. I let Shane pick this one out so that I can cook one meal for all of us and still stay on track.
#4 - What is better than walking into Starbuck's and being given FREE coffee?
#5 - French Onion Soup and Thai Chicken Salad at Panera Bread.
#6 - Sorry, mice lovers, but this mouse on our deck needed to go!
#7 - New CTMH to play with!! Lots of artwork done, and I'll be showing it starting January 28th!
#8 - Shane has picked up the craft of cross-stitching. And boy, is he good at it!!
#9 & #10 - Magazine Publications
#11& #12 - Sales mentions on the Pacemaker team!
Phew! Makes me tired that all of that happened in one day! I love this class, and I love the idea of giving tribute to a day filled with "everyday" things.
