Todays thoughts and ideas

Snow at last. We had a few inches of snow this morning. I hope it sticks around for the weekend so my little girl can go sleding.

I put together a new design for a mailable size thank you card. I just have to wait for the sun to come out to take some photos. I made a set of four and I really like them so I hope they are popular.

Todays thoughts and Ideas

When I get to 100 followers for this blog I am going to have a giveaway. I've seen other blogs doing giveaways in order to get followers but I am going to look at mine more as a celebration of 100 followers. I don't want people following just to get free stuff, my hope is that people follow because they like what they see here. So as of right now this blog needs 48 more followers before the giveaway.

I really want to figure out a way to make something for my shop with a ancient Greek or Roman theme. I have always been fascinated by the gods and goddesses so I am thinking a series of Aceo cards each featuring a different god or goddess.

I am going to have to give it some more thought but maybe I could put together a Venus/Aphrodite item before valentines.

Recycled Butterfly Embellishments

I have been trying to think of something to do with all the magazines and catalogs that I get other than tossing them in the recycling. I came up with the butterfly embellishments in the photo. Each one constists of four butterfly punch outs. I glued two pairs of butterflies together to thinken the paper and then glued the two pairs together down the middle to make them 3D. These are going to be great for scrapbooking and card making and each one is unique.

Todays find of the day comes from I am about to start listing butterfly embellishments made from recycled magazines so recycling has been on my mind a lot and when I saw this shop it really stood out for me. These creations are amazingly creative and I probably wouldn't have guessed they were made from recycled plastic bags if I had just seen the photo.
