No Craft Space

I'm still sort of transitioning and I don't have a dedicated craft space. I should not let that stop me from crafting, but things are just imbalanced. Someone recently told me that my Feng Shui is off. That is so true.

It will still be a few more days before I can try to get back into my flow.

I did stop by a Cord Camera last Saturday. I only spent $10 but I got a couple of sheets of one of the new Basic Grey lines. And I got a Quickutz Revolution die and something else.

That's all for now ... what have you been up to?

The Cuttlebug v. The Quickutz Squeeze: A Craft Critique Article

I have another article posted on Craft Critique.

This one is The Cuttlebug v. The Quickutz Squeeze.

I know that you will find it interesting since you know that I recently lost my Cuttlebug. You should also know that I bought another one.

Oh and you can follow Craft Critique on Twitter: @CraftCritique

Thanks for hanging around.

It's a Valentine's Carnival @ Craft Critique

Oh ... this time of year is so much fun. Unfortunately, I was not able to play w/any of my goodies for this one. But I did oggle over some of my old cards and I shared the link w/the good folks at Craft Critique.

They've compiled a very lengthy list of ideas for this lover's holiday. If you get a chance, check it out. You are sure to get inspired.

Thanks :: 2 Sketches 4 You

Okay, so I've been away from 2 Sketches 4 You for a few weeks. I hope to participate more frequently. If all else fails, I am keeping up w/the activity over there. Like there is a new design team. Congrats to all especially my friend Savitri. Love her work.

Here's the back story on today's creation: recently moved. Most of what I own is in storage. Packed two bags and a box of craft items to take w/me. Can't find the box. Don't remember what I did w/the Cuttlebug (CB) (see previous post). Used a 40% coupon and bought a new CB @ Michaels today. Happier.

As card making goes, this one was simple. Love that.

Thanks for looking ... here's what I used:
cardstock: craft supply
patterned paper: K & Co.
ink: Tim Holtz
stamp: Stampabilities
ribbon: Offray
dry embossing: Cuttlebug

Help - Lost Cuttlebug

It's a sad day and a sad time ... I recently moved/relocated ... whatever you want to call it. Point is, I had to pack up my humongous craft stash and now I don't know where things are. I created a pile of craft stash that I absolutely had to have w/me and that I could have immediate access to. I thought that's where the Cuttlebug is/was. It is not.

You do know how hard it is to misplace a Cuttlebug, right ... ? I mean, it's a bright green color and it's a bit heavy too. But I can tell you one thing, it is NOT in this house. What I am also afraid of is that I will find the machine, but then, where in the heck are the plates ... ? Jeez.

I am soooo tempted to grab a 40% off coupon and go buy another one. But that would be wasteful. My sister offered to mail me hers ... not so genius since I already mentioned how heavy it is.

My only hope is that someone in my neighborhood will invite me over to craft and that they will have all of the super cool craft tools including a Cuttlebug. Wow ... wake me from that dream. I'm sure my neighbors know nothing about the CB or its popularity in the craft world or my sadness for being w/out mine for that matter.

Oh woe is me ... how I am going to partipate in the Cuttlebug Challenge? How am I going to write my next article for Craft Critique, which includes critiquing the Cuttlebug?

What if I wrote Provo Craft - the makers of Cuttlebug - a note? Why not just send them this blog post? Silly me, silly, silly me ... well, if you live in Ohio and have a Cuttlebug - Holla.

Thanks to Ruthie for the "Missing" poster! :-)
