{May 8, 2008}   Book of Me by Diane

A while back, I searched online for a demonstrators near me but I went with a few who lived not so close to me.  They were offering classes that were interesting and at the right price:

I was confident that I had enough creative juices to adapt whatever project that they had going at their places at home by myself.  I certainly had enough stamp sets at home to easily replace whichever they had chosen.  That was the easy part.  I also liked the convenience of predesigned cards and embellishments.  All I needed to do is stamp, color and assemble.

The next few entries will detail my relationships with these awesome ladies.

Let’s start with Diane.

I thought scrapping was really neat so I signed up for Diane’s 12 month Book of Me:

{May 8, 2008}   Mother’s Day

holy moly!

It’s that time of the year already!?!

While I was designing Clean Slates I also made 2 Mother’s Day cards for Stacy.

Now if I can just get my batteries working I can upload all 10 pictures.

Can’t wait to play more with my stencils!

Wow, it’s really true once that you break that crazy cycle of negativity, you are open to a whole new world!!!

Guess who I pumped into?

Tonya

I didn’t even know she left me a message in my other blog when I didn’t have this one up.  So I’m sending good vibes and a RAK your way sweetie!  Shh, she doesn’t know because it’s a surprise – I didn’t know people were coming to my site and I don’t know the back office of wordpress nor blogspot so … it took me a while to realize she left me a message.

It’s midnight but that’s the witching hour when the creative juices flow.  Probably some hormonal thing from lack of sleep but shhhh…

No really, I’m up making cards anyways.  It’s a new program called “Clean Slates” honoring and thanking of Teachers.

Yup, you guessed it, I’ve been commissioned to make 8 Teacher’s thank you since it’s that time of the year.

I came up with the name also because they are dry-embossed with brass stencil on SU Whisper White.  I did use Fiskar’s border punches called Rope and Eyelet lace.

Oh, my!  Designing were so much fun but they are all white.  haha tempted to add color but I’m not.  I’ll be the first to keep it simple and one layer.  hehe..

What do you think of my calling them, “Clean Slates”?

My only thing is that it’s challenging to take pictures of them.  It turns out fuzzy.  Going to try scanning them.

Wish me best!

Guess what?!

Corris also made a commitment to pay it forward after she discovered it on IvyArts, who came by the idea at Anna’s:

It’s the Pay It Forward Exchange. It’s based of the concept of the movie “Pay it Forward” where acts or deeds of kindness are done without expecting something in return, just passing it on, with hope that the recipients of the acts of kindness are passed on. You all know I’m already a PIF type of person. So here’s how it works. I will make and send a handmade gift to the first 3 people who leave a comment to this post on my blog requesting to join this PIF exchange. I do not know what that gift will be yet, and it won’t be sent this month, probably not next month, but it will be sent (within 6 months) and that’s a promise! What YOU have to do in return, then, is pay it forward by making the same promise on your blog.

Well, I plan to be around for a while… my thoughts are if it works, why stop at 3?

I’m going to add to it by changing it to one random person every month will receive something from me.

Best to you!



{May 1, 2008}   Pay It Forward (PIF #1)

I remember watching the movie, “Pay It Forward.”

Wow!

Some time I ago, I came across Jana ‘s blog from Kyla ‘s blog.

Then I bumped into it again. 

I figure it must be karma so I want to post here about do-gooders in the world.

I’m changing it a bit from the first 3 posts forever to a random person every month.  I noticed that no one posted a comment after the 1st three.  I like to believe we are beyond motivation but hey!  We are human driven by needs.  LOL
