1  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Spring Flowers Cross Stitch on: May 19, 2011 12:52:49 PM
This is my second attempt at cross stitch. The first cross stitch I did was of Eeyore and it was not a very good likeness of him, but I enjoyed making him. I picked up a cross stitch magazine and found this pattern. It seemed simple enough and it didn't take me long to finish it. I'm really pleased with it. I only messed up a few times and only 1 of those times I wasn't able to go back in and fix it because it was too late when I noticed it...and I didn't want to mess with that since I have no idea what I'm doing yet. Smiley

Some of the stitches aren't very tidy but I figure I'll get better with some practice.
2  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) / My First ATCs - Cupcakes! on: May 03, 2011 06:08:04 PM
I've become obsessed with inchies since I joined this site and there's a Beginner's Inch Swap that I will be able to join once my 1 month waiting period is over. But this swap also requires that you make ATCs and I've never made an ATC. I was a little worried about joining a swap that requires me to send an item that I've never made before (especially since I am not an artist!), so I decided to have a test-run today on making some. I have to say, it was pretty darn fun! This might be my next big obsession. Smiley

I do apologize for the blurriness of the photos. I took them with my phone because I couldn't find my camera. I'm pretty sure my husband lost it.  Angry

I decided I'd make a few cupcake ATCs. This pink one was the first. I hadn't added the words yet and it looked kind of plain to me so the idea to call it "Pretty in Pink" struck me. I'm not sure why the corners rolled up on this one, but I plain on sticking it underneath some heavy books to flatten it back out.

Well, after naming my first ATC "Pretty in Pink," I knew I'd have to go with a common theme for my next one (because I'm anal like that) so here is "Sixteen Candles."

Hello! I found this site about an hour ago and after glancing through a few of the forums, I knew I had to join. I'm just sorry I never found this site sooner!

I love all kinds of craft projects but my favorite would be paper crafts. I also love holiday projects.

Just a bit about me: I'm 27 and live in Hanover, Pennsylvania. I've been happily married for almost 8 years and have 5 furbabies - 2 dogs and 3 cats. Looking forward sharing crafty ideas on this site!
