Good News from Laura !

I feel like I passed the first test ! Laura sent me an email stating that she loved the Mini Album I made for her ! YEY! OK, I can do this ( I say to myself) . It's a wonderful feeling to make something for someone you don't even know. It's amazing what one can learn from that person just by Googleling ! You must check out her website at followingthepapertrail.blogspot.com She is amazing! I am ready for my next swap. Can't wait to find out who she is .

I have to thank Deux Shabby Chics again for getting me started. Check them out at deuxshabbychic.blogspot.com You girls Rock!

OMG - I received my Mini Album from the lovely Vangie! WOW! It is amazing! Even prettier in person! VANGIE, THANK YOU SO MUCH! This album reflects the beautiful person that you are! I will cherish it always! If you wish to check it out please visit her blog at arrestedmotion.blogspot.com . It is also her Birthday month 09/23. HAPPY BIRTHDAY GIRL! BEST WISHES ALWAYS!

Did I mention I am going to Artful Journey in February to take a class with DJ Pettitt!. There I have three Swaps. One is to make 22 Goodie bags, of things that you would like to receive. It started out that they were to be sandwich bags, but someone said, "I am making goody bags but they will not be sandwich bags." That means we have to get creative with our bags :) (Fun), Then, there is 120 ATC Trades for the entire group of people attending the event, and there is a special Apron for my assigned parter, this one is to be handmade and embellished to her likings ! WOW. I have a lot to do.

This weekend I am hoping to learn the YouTube thing. I would like my next mini to be in video so I can share more! Until next time... Be creative always!

Laura's Mini DCS Swap

I DID IT ! I am including photos of Laura's Mini before it gets overnighted today to her home. I had a lot of fun putting it together and can only hope she likes it. This is my first swap ever. Hopefully I will have time next one to put on You Tube. Looking forward to getting more into this and I should get better in time !

This could have been a slide show or a You Tube. OMG, I am so behind. I have so much to learn.

Clock is ticking !

Yes. I've been quiet. No You Tube yet :( but I will be posting the photos of Laura's 6 x 6 Mini Album. I never heard back from Laura, so, I decided that based on her blog, and based on her credentials, She must be a classy lady! Album is almost done, I even did a three pieced fabric cover for her butterfly , yes I did sewing! But it needs more stuff. So tonight I will bling it up :) and I will have to overnight it to her for her to get by Monday 09/28. I have also decorated the box it is going in. I really hope she likes it. This is one ginormous challenge, then it happens to be my first swap! Yikes! I have been busy. Can't wait to share.

Arlene, thanks for your comment and thanks for all you inspiration! I love it!

OK. This is a slow start , but I finally thought of my shape (s) for Laura's mini Album. YEY! I am hoping that by End of this weekend I will have my first You Tube Intro video and a little peek at her album. (Let's hope she is not reading ;-) Anyway, I am having fun during this setting up and moving forward into the Blogging world. Even bought a book at Barnes to improve my blog site.
Can't wait to share, until next time.

Laura Benison

I must say I am in for a great challenge. As a part of DSC I am to create an album for Laura Benison. After learning who she is artistically, watching all of her You Tubes (which totally rock!) I feel like when you are shopping for a gift for a person who has everything. :)
I am the person who has millions of things in my artroom, however; felt the need to go shopping for her album... (Noticed how I said NEED) Can't wait to share.
After taking on the challenge of setting up my blog and my you tube (Thanks Deux Shabby Chics) now I have to get the video thing going . In that way I can show any progress or final album that will be going off to Laura. So off I go, will come back soon. Best,
