It’s been a busy summer so far, but I have still managed to fit in the things I love to do. Over the weekend I picked up this little beauty from my local needlework shop, Stitches N Things, where I had her framed by Juanita, at Way Cool Mats:
I love her! The frame is perfect for her. She is Blossom Collector by Nora Corbett. I stitched her on a One of A Kind fabric from Fantasy Dyed Fabrics, 16ct Aida. And she is even up on the wall in my craft room, along with Queen Anne’s Lace.
I can’t wait to see what Pixie I will do next…I have lots of wall space. I have been purchasing fabrics from Fantasy Dyed Fabrics for all of the pixies I want to do. Just look at all the beauties:
I have 2 more that arrived since this photo and 3 more on the way. All but 2 of the fabrics have plans to have something stitched on them. Just love her fabrics and can’t wait to see what pixie will get my attention next. But it won’t be before I finish Aphrodite. Here is my progress on her:
The shell seems to be taking me forever! I did some major stitching on it yesterday but it still seems far from finishing. But I am determined to finish her before switching to another project or starting a new one. Once I get past the shell, I am hoping going upwards will be much faster.
And since a few of you have asked to see some of my stamped creations, here is one of the make N take cards I had at my Stampin’ Up! Open House a couple of weekends ago.
So that is what I have been up to lately. What is taking up your time these days?
Hello my blogging friends. It has been a busy month for me. I don’t know if you know, but I am a demonstrator for a company called Stampin’ Up!. I teach people how to create their own greeting cards and scrapbook their memories with stamps. April 3, 2016 marked 15 years as being a demonstrator. And on June 1, 2016 I reached $200,000.00 in career sales. It may not mean anything to most, but for me, these are 2 goals that I wanted to meet, and I did. And within months of each other. And June 1, 2016 was the launch of the new Stampin’ Up! catalog, so I have been busy making new samples and planning a New Catalog Open House which I had on Saturday.
The Open House went well and everyone that attended had a great time seeing new products, creating a couple of cards using new products and getting freebies. Now I can get back to a normal kind of routine 🙂 I also had another exciting thing happen this month. On June 1, I received an email from a company called Stamp N Storage that my new craft room photos had won May Studio Showcase! I won $75 which I chose as store credit because there are 2 more storage items that I want for my craft room. You can read about my craft room win and see phots here. I LOVE their storage units. My room looks a little different even now, because I keep moving and adding things to better suit my stuff, LOL. Once I get the last 2 items I will take a couple of more photos for you. Hopefully that will be the end of rearranging. I am having fun creating in my new space. It is my own little piece of happiness 🙂
I have been so busy, and I had 2 little vacations in the middle of everything, that I haven’t been able to do much stitching. During vacation time I didn’t stitch at all! Seven straight days with no stitching. I thought I was going to lose my mind! This last week I finally had some time to stitch a couple of nights. But I was only able to put in 12-25 stitches before my eyes drooped too far to see anymore. But here is how I left Aphrodite last night (my best stitching day in a long time 🙂
Not a whole lot more added since my last post about her, but every stitch counts, right? I am hoping to stitch a lot more this week. So sorry I have been out of touch, but what have you been working on lately? I’d love to see 🙂
