Good morning!  Hope y’all are doing well and staying out of trouble.  Me . . . not so much . . . trouble I mean!

I’ve been hard at work in the studio with Christmas and CHA projects, but not too much to share yet.  However, I do have a few things today.

The above bezel and a gift box . .  .


are both being featured on the Quietfire Creations Blog today.  All the details for both, along with more pictures, are over there.  Please hop over and leave me a comment so I know that you were there!  It’s one of those things . . . I was here and you weren’t, now you’re here and I’m not!

I’m off for the weekly weigh in at WW and some quality time with my sister!  Oh wait, I don’t think I’ve mentioned this.  I started going to Weight Watchers with my sister back in October . . . as of last week, I had lost 20 pounds.  I’m tired of seeing pictures of myself plastered all over the internet looking like a short little stump . . .  hoping to remedy that.  I guess one remedy is to never ever have my picture taken again (which I don’t always have control over); the other remedy is to actually do something for myself . . . get healthy!

Okay that’s it for me today.  Thanks for stopping by!

Hey everybody!  How the heck are ya?  I know I’ve been fairly lax in posting on the old blog lately.  I’ve been so busy with projects I can’t post yet, classes, my girls and other stuff, that it’s been the last thing I think about.  Actually, I was thinking yesterday about my blog and how I used to tell stories, etc., and how I’ve gotten away from it.  I don’t know why either . . . I guess time constraints, design team work, etc.  I’m not happy with the way things have been here . . . so look for some changes.  I’ll write more about that in another post.

How many of you are signed up for and receive the Graphic 45 newsletter?  I didn’t even know about it until a few months ago.  Everyone was talking about the Graphic 45 Design Team Call in the newsletter and I’m going  . . .  duh, what newsletter?   I didn’t try out for the upcoming design team, not because I didn’t see the newsletter (I’ve since signed up for it) . . . BUT because of other, more personal reasons.   My daughter, Kate, is expecting her first baby . . . my first grandchild . . . and I wanted my time to be free so I could babysit!  I’ve been so excited but didn’t want to say anything because the kids were waiting to tell people.  It still may not be okay . . . but I can’t wait anymore!  I’m going to be a grammy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Okay, back to the Graphic 45 Newsletter.  I have a big project in the newsletter that went out today . . . I altered one of their 5×5 kraft boxes for springtime and it contains that promised video of how to make my flowers.  You can also find the video on my YouTube Channel.

Here’s the box I made.
