Weekend update

The past couple of days, I’ve been debating whether to keep blogging or not because I don’t get a lot of visits and certainly not a lot of comments. But then, I asked myself, why exactly do I keep a blog? While it is nice to receive likes, comments and various feedback, that isn’t the main reason for my blogging. I blog to share my passions, my creations and a little bit about my life. Arts and crafts are my main passion in life but I do have others. Music, movies, my cats, and, actually, my job are all things … Continue reading Weekend update

Weekend update

My personal schedule is changing this week with some dance classes on Mondays and Fridays so I might have to rethink my blogging schedule accordingly. I’ll let you know if I do. In the meantime, here are my weekend’s creations. On Saturday, I made a greeting card for a friend of the family who just became a first-time dad. Mom had already assembled the 3D image of the dog and baby so I simply had to match papers, cut and assemble everything. On Sunday, I wasn’t feeling too well so I took it easy, watched a lot of old TV … Continue reading Weekend update

Greeting card journal

A few years ago, I made a bunch of journals out of various papers and greeting cards. Since I still have a lot of papers and cards, I thought I’d start doing my greeting card journals again. I use 10 sheets of paper and fold them all in half to end up with 20 double-sided pages.  I added a few tabs, journaling cards and stickers to some of the pages as well as an envelope at the back.  This journal is a great size to carry around and write/sketch/art journal on the go. I’ll definitely make more. I might even … Continue reading Greeting card journal

Welcome 2014

2013 hasn’t been my most creative year. I’ve definitely neglected this blog and my creative habit for most of the year and I feel really bad about it. So I decided to end 2013 and start 2014 with a creative bang. I rarely go on YouTube even though I know there are a lot of great vloggers and wonderful tutorials to watch. On December 30th, I decided to give it a chance and found a great tutorial on how to make a journal from greeting cards. I instantly was inspired to get started. So I rummaged through my box of … Continue reading Welcome 2014

Lost and found

So I got lost for a little while there. But fear no more, I found my way back. In fact, when I woke up (way too early) this morning, I declared today to be “Take back my life” day. What better way to do this than getting back to this little blog of mine which used to be such a big part of my life. And I have to say, I miss it. A whole lot! I actually have quite a few things to show you on here but we’ll start with the album above… This is a travel mini-album … Continue reading Lost and found

Lazy’s Kool Kreature – Kréature Kool pour Lazy

I played with my sewing machine yesterday and finally make the chew toy I wrote about on Friday. I wanted some embellishments on it but nothing that a puppy could rip out and choke on. So it’s jeans on jeans. I put a plastic bag inside the form and then filled that with polyfill. The plastic bag gives it a bit of a crinkly noise. I hope that Lazy will like her new toy! J’ai joué avec ma machine à coudre hier et j’ai finalement fait le jouet à mordiller que j’ai mentionné Vendredi. Je voulais un peu d’embellissements dessus … Continue reading Lazy’s Kool Kreature – Kréature Kool pour Lazy
