Are You Ready?

So, I realized today that tomorrow is the first of September!  Where did August go?  If I am going to do ‘Your Stuff… Use It!’, I need to get off my butt, and put my thoughts on paper so I can start!  So, I present to you, my plan!  (both so you can keep me accountable, and on schedule, and if you want to join me, you can!)

I am thinking 1 topic (but maybe multiple projects in each topic) per week.

So, here is the time-table it am envisioning…

Week 1 (sept. 1-7)- Greeting Cards

Week 2 (sept. 8-14)- Art Journal Page

Week 3 (sept. 15-21)- Simple book binding

Week 4 (sept. 22-28)- Alter something… (to be determined ((I have never done this one, so I am going in blind… gulp!))

Last 2 days- catch up on any unfinished projects

Bonus Projects- A Canvas (either flat or box)

I will list what I use for the projects, it will keep me honest!

And I thought if other people do end up coming to play with me, there could be a possibility of prizes and a “Your Stuff…Exchange It!” exchange.  Because who doesn’t like receiving ‘new’ stuff? 😉

You can join as many or as few weeks as you like… do one, or do the whole thing! (and if I do it by myself, well, it will be all that more challenging to me if I have to inspire myself 😉 )

If you want to play, it’s easy!  Leave me a comment down below my post (of the week, cards for cards, mixed media for mixed media, ect), with a link you your post.  That is it. Easy right?

So, who is in with me? =D

Old Green Card (re-do)

Okay.  This one is… interesting.  I came across a card I make years ago.  And it was capital ‘U’ U-G-L-Y!  Ya know one, that hurt your eyes to look at, and made you cringe? Yeah.  So I ripped it apart, salvaged what I could, and put it back together.  And it is a massive improvement.  I still wouldn’t actually give it to anyone, but at least now I don’t feel like I need to burn it… 😉

A New Haircut…

You didn’t really think it was me, did you? 😉  This is Daisy, with her summer ‘do’. (the cat got time last week, it’s only fair that the dog gets equal time… )
