I'm Baaaa..aaaaack!

Sheesh!! What a month!! I have been running like my pants were on fire since Thanksgiving - rushing from one project right into the next! This is my latest (and hopefully LAST) big project for a while - the wedding favors I did for my friend and her daughter for her daughter's wedding. I made 300 of these little babies!! I thought I was going to lose my mind!!!

The worst part? When I was down to what I thought was the "end" - tying the ribbons onto the boxes - it took me EIGHT stinkin' hours!!! EIGHT!!! I nearly lost my mind!!! I am soooooo glad to have these out of the way!!

I think I am going to start stamping some things that don't require me to run around for a bit (famous last words!). We DO have a new release coming out this week for Innovative Stamp Creations AND there is the next Control Freaks Blog Tour coming on the 20th. I hate to admit that I have spent the better part of the last two days decompressing and watching episodes of Grey's Anatomy online (how embarrassing!!). My brain has officially turned to mush!!

Stamps: None!
Paper: Not Quite Navy, Chocolate Chip, Whisper White
Ink: HP Printer
Accessories: Bigz XL Matchbox die, Cuttlebug D'Vine Swirl embossing folder, Martha Stewart Snowflake punch, rhinestones, 1/4" circle punch, wide oval punch, 5/8" Whisper White satin ribbon

Love the little boxes! They look so neat on the table all together like that....but I hate making an abundance of one thing. I get burnt out with it...I can only imagine how you feel.

Sue from Oregon said...

hmmm..600 snowflakes, 600 little blingies, 300 ribbons...2 pieces to each box(cuttled at that) wonder you are burnt out!

Jo said...

I was hoping you where going to show us the boxes when you mentioned you were making them last week. They are darling! I bet she loved them. Keep up the good work, but get some rest you deserve it!

Well, I think you were due to let your brain turn to mush for a couple of days.....the sound of crickets, and nothing else, flowing around....

The boxes are beautiful, hopefully the bride and groom were very appreciative!!!

Okay Wendy . . . . . at the risk of having you laugh at my cards (oooooo, I'm taking a risk!!! you've got me nervous!!!), come take a look and see how my first stamp club went. I got the order in fine . . . I am such a child! I have this "I can do it MYSELF" attitude that I need to get rid of. We were a success! I had great sales, and a great bunch of ladies there.

Thanks for all you've done and will do for me!!

Rather you than me but they are cute.

I did the wedding invites for my son and daughter in law and had a lot of help.
