I’d like to thank everyone who stopped by from What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday for their kind and supportive comments. That was really nice.
Thanks to the ladies at Glitter and Glue from WOYWW, I’ve found a new stash-crashy challenge! It’s called Craft Hoarders Anonymous. The rules are: use products from your stash; follow the rules of the challenge– theme, color, manufacturer, sketch, etc.; and the usual stuff like no back-linking, linking to the post and not to the blog entire, etc. You can combine any number of challenges. Challenges are biweekly. Occasional prizes are awarded to top contestants, and not by random draw.
This is a fairly recent challenge; they’re only on Number Six. I like that other people around the papercrafting blogosphere have had the same idea as me — to quit buying so much stuff and use what you have!
I will add this challenge to the original Things to Visit post and my blogroll.
And now, here are three cards I made, using paper and embellishments from the Basic Grey “Spice Market” collection. I love any products with that Oriental or Middle Eastern style. No stamps here — well, one, the sentiment on the white card. Doesn’t it go perfectly with the style of the embellishments?
My office isn’t fully clean, but I really felt the need to make something. I’m not even really sure why, but I feel I *need* to craft these days. The blank card is my canvas, it is my way of expressing myself. And it brings delight to others, as well. I also make jewelry, although I have fallen away from that somewhat lately, and write fiction. I’ve found I need to create something regularly, even something as small as a greeting card, or I feel my life has no purpose.
So, that being said, thanks for reading and commenting on my blog. It means a lot to me. Have a good Sunday, everybody.
