Sorry about the picture! I guess I need to make sure I rotate before I upload!
So here is a bookmark I did for a weekly challenge over at the Crafty Community. The challenge was something old and something new. It was pretty sad that out of all the new things I have gotten for Christmas, the newest thing I used was ink by Color Box in brown, merlot, and black!

The items from my stash that I have had for several months (cough maybe years!):
Paper: Paper Pizazz
Stamp: "letter" - Inkadinkado
Bling: Zva Creative
Story Ticket: Adage Tickets by Tim Holtz
Strand on top: hemp cording used in jewelery making which is knotted and braided.

My room is still a mess but at least I used a few things!

January 2012

Welcome 2012! I will be the first to admit crafting was on the back burner last year. I have made some things just not posted them here.  I also  have gathered MORE goodies than any girl should have! I have to make the time to be crafty and keep my juices flowing. My first goal this month is to get this crap craft room organized. I did purchase a ribbon rack from Joann Fabrics so my "small" collection of ribbon will be in my face and get used. I also need to dust off my cricut and use some of the carts that I just had to have.

I have just returned from Clermont, FL and had a wonderful relaxing week! Was spoiled rotten by Sam and Vikkie! We rented a home and had a blast! I loved having a pool right out the back door! It was hard to come home to cold and snow!

Here is to a crafty 2012!
