Craftin' and Creating Today!

Kerryanne English at shabbyartboutique has an award of sorts for me to pass on to you. I consider it more of a game I suppose but it's fun anyway. I'm supposed to pick my 4th photo in my 4th folder and blog about it. Well, I'm on a Mac so I don't have picture folders per se, but I have iPhoto and this is the 4th photo out of my current stash. I keep them in there until I get about 1,000 and then burn them to disks and start over. It's about time to start over as I have 1,018 at the moment! Sheeeesh, how time flies when you're having photoshoots - everything from creating crafts to creating redos of my living room and bedroom and........well, you know the drill.

Anyway, I'm taking a break for a few minutes while some glue is drying on the lallapalooza I'm working on today. It's a wet and cold day so a good day to get on this.

Anyhooooo, this is a mosaic table my daughter made and I blogged about it so if you find this boring (for one there ain't no hope for ya, honey!) then scroll down to what I AM working on for some things I'm giving or swapping. You can be sure it'll include some roses and lots of PINK and be gorgeoussssss! Okay, so maybe I'm exaggerating a bit........but just a bit, chicks.

Just a small teensy tiny peek at what I'm crafting and creating for one of three swaps I'm doing. Hmmmmmmm..... I love to tease ya chicks! These are just some of the items going into it. I have 2 sweet valentines day swaps and one giveaway. Hmmmmm....I wonder which this one will be..... Ooooh, you little cherubs better tell all your friends to sign up for this because I'm telling ya they'll definitely be mad at you if you don't show them.......(she says in her best sing-song voice!) I'll post the completed project in a day or so and then request you to comment to be eligible for the giveaway so keep your eyes open, little cherubs. Nothing gives me greater pleasure than to give away something. Squeeeeeeeeeal!!!!!!! Truly........

Back to work..........

  19. The mosaic is absolutely gorgeous. I love it. This is a very interesting post. I have a Mac computer also with iPhoto. I always used PC computes until I got this one about 6 months ago. I love love love it. It is so much fun to work with. Poor Hubby is stuck with the old computer.
    Bye now.

  20. Hi Connie,
    You little tease!!! Would you mind if I cheated a little with the swap and included a little something with roses instead of hearts??!!! The "rules" said that the items should have hearts on them and I'm not always good at following the rules...
    It looks pretty...anymore "peaks"?
    Freezing in MN..

  21. Oooh! Pink tulle!!
    And I love the table...such a gorgeous mosaic.

    You are making an easter tree! Hmm...or a Valentine one? I just know I love the pinks and oh so pretty fabrics.

    You are such a talent sweet Connie!


  22. Hi Connie, Glad you are feeling better! The mosaic table is beautiful! Pink tulle...makes me think of my baby granddaughter. Her mommy loves everything pink. Can't wait to see what you make! Oh how I wish I had a blog so I could be part of the swap project! Hopefully soon! Take care...
    Sincere, Darlene M
