Hark! Another Project!

First off, let me again say how good it is to be back!  Thank you for the sweets messages, the likes and the new follows! Comments and FB likes are just pure enjoyment.  I love the kind and fun crafty community...

I did manage to get a couple of projects out this weekend. This is another one for ME!  I never make myself stuff, it's always given away as gifts, so I decided to use favorite papers and colors and make a few fun little things.  This is the "jewelry box" from SVGcuts Playful Parlour Kit.

I used Close to my Hearts For Always paper pack and the Lagoon cardstock that comes in it.  I LOVE the Lagoon Cardstock and think I will stock up on it! :)  I topped it off with some of my favorite ribbon, also CTMH. 

Nothing like a little embossing to make things extra fancy.  It also gives a lot of dimension to the piece with the embossing, and the white core peeking through is a lovely touch.
This little piece of cuteness holds three 3x3 post it packs and two of the small ones with it.  Perfect for my desktop!  I hope you enjoyed this project as much as me! 
Thank you again for visiting and your kind words.

Hello! I have missed you!

Hello Crafty Friends!  I have missed you!  There has been a long dry spell of non-craftiness lately.  I am not sure what happened, but I clearly needed a break.  Finally yesterday the starts, the sun, moon and planets aligned and I was able to have some crafty time, and actually felt like using it!
I decided that my first order of business was to make some decorations for my desk at work.  Currently, there is nothing inspiring to look at while I am at my desk all day!  Terrible, right?

The first thing I made was a cute little basket to hold candy on my desk for my co-workers.  I used the new Picnic at the Park kit from my very favorite SVGCuts.com.
The Claire paper pack from Close to my heart I thought would be really cute for this.  The denim paper is adorable as the basket weave!  (Well I think so anyways)

I have a couple more projects to share later this week as part of the desk decor project.
By the way, who is your favorite SVG source?

Thanks for visiting! I promise not to be such a stranger again!
