I visited a sought-after “paint your own pottery” place back home yesterday to celebrate a special birthday. Being a Doctor Who fan, I chose a Tardis! It was a bit disconcerting to paint it purple (supposedly a specialty glaze that will turn a beautiful Tardis blue once fired). I’m hoping my painstaking letters don’t flow somewhere else! 🤞🤪🤷♀️#

A quick bridal shower card using the Stampin’ Up products “Wonderful Moments,” “Hand Delivered,” and “Floral Romance Specialty Designer Series Paper.
I put this together quickly this afternoon after a worker at my local gift shop told me she needed to find a bridal shower card by the weekend. This is the shop that sells my cards; I was on the campus and stopped in prior to my afternoon delivery of the latest batch. It was just a chance meeting with the worker, but she’s bought my cards before and was looking for another. So I went home and made her one. 🙂 I used the retired Floral Romance Specialty Designer Series Paper for the balloons; the girl and balloon image is from the retired “Hand Delivered” stamp set. (Some of the balloon paper is vellum!) And then I used a stamp from the current “Wonderful Moments” set for the sentiment. I haven’t used these products enough yet! I stamped out more balloons to put into cards later. The base of this card is from the current Scalloped Notecards pack. If you’d like to order either the stamp set or the Scalloped Notecards pack, you can shop at my personal Stampin’ Up link here: https://www.stampinup.com/ecweb/default.aspx
—and I’m happy to take custom orders for cards for you as well! Just use the “Contact Me” form. 🙂 Thanks for stopping in and reading!

So what’s the first thing I do after a week of hard mental labor with *zero* time in the craft room, before I even go to bed? Make a card, of course! Thanks to Deb for the kit pieces – I just rearranged them in a pleasing arrangement. 🙂 And there’s another waiting yet. But bedtime first. #cardmakersofinstagram #easypeasy #randombits #thelittlewhatnotshop #constantlycreating
Progress on my first diamond painting (or what to take to do on vacation!)
When the cat’s away at board meetings, the mouse will do her crafts! After a few hours today and yesterday, my #diamondpainting canvas is much improved! Newbie that I am, I still don’t know whether to work from the center out or the outside in…but I’ve figured out that I’m faster and more accurate with tweezers than the sticky pick-up tool! My #gorjussgirl is coming along nicely now. August deadline no longer a question. (Which is good, since I’ve bought three more designs – two of which will be gifts.) Any hints on how to frame them? . . . #constantlycreating #thelittlewhatnotshop #newhobbies #gorjussgirls #halloweentheme #justlikecrossstitch #crossstitchjunkie
