Today marks an important milestone. It was 1 year ago that one of my dearest friends, Paola, joined my meetup group! She has since signed up as a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, started her own meetup group, gave birth to an amazing son, made me laugh, enabled my shopping habit at craft stores, blessed me with LOTS of glitter, listened to my many stories about whatever, drove around the 'hood for hours just to come hang out...but mostly, she has become my friend. Thank you Paola for always being there for me. I love that we can chat about anything especially our love of crafting. I am so blessed to have met you and truly honored to have you as my friend! Tons of Love and INKY HUGS!
I wanted to share two of my latest creations. The first one is a shaker card in which I used the Life is a Breeze Stamp Set from Stampin' Up! I filled the shaker with sand, sequins and a little blue glitter.
Next, I used paper to create beads. You simply roll strips of paper and cover them with Mod Podge. I used those beads to create earrings using other beads from my "stash". They were really fun and easy. Great idea for a gift!
