The holiday season 2018

2018 has been an amazing year!  We moved and we are delighted with our decision.  We live near the beach, shopping and restaurants galore, and we have wonderful new friends.  I do miss my family, but we go back and forth often.  In October, I was in a craft show in our new community.  I sold many many cards, and I was thrilled!  (A picture is below.)  One of my new crafty friends organized a “crafts club”, and I taught two classes of iris folding, making ornament and snowflake cards for the holiday.   Before 2019 begins, I want to share some of my cards for this holiday season, and a couple of sea glass pictures I made as gifts.  Here we go!

Stitching summer 2018

Stitching on paper is not new.  However recently a few dies were created to use in cutting machines that make holes on the entire paper.  It’s a game changer.  Here are a few Valentine Day cards.

Valentine's Day 2018

I find stitching to be a lot of fun.  It’s versatile and there is no right or wrong. What could be better?  Here are some recent cards–Easter, Mother’s Day, and Birthday.

Christmas wreath

This Christmas wreath is made of clothes pins and washi tape.  It was a lot of fun to make and I am happy with the results.  This wreath is a gift to my good friend, Linda.

Snowflake wreath

Winter is my favorite time of year!  Snowflakes are a passion of mine. No flake is the same and I find this amazing.  I love the way the flakes shine and sparkle in the sun.  What is better than a snowflake wreath?
