My sister was so sweet to host us while we were traveling through Jacksonville on our way to and back from Key West that I wanted to make sure to send her an extra special card. She LOVES tacos, and I remembered that SVGCuts had a taco truck box card design, so I sat down, whipped out my trusty Silhouette Cameo and started cutting out pieces. I love watching their assembly videos...Mary makes the assembly so easy to understand, AND it's like crafting with a fun friend...that you can rewind!
You may remember seeing other box card designs I've made...I have to say I love the dimensionality without having to worry about how I can ship them! It's a fun way to wow someone! Mary's designs are always super detailed too...the taco even has a vellum wrapper!! And can you see the headlights?!?!

Look at the great designs the marbling technique made! Once I had made a few I learned a bit better how to manipulate the paint to get the patterns I liked best.
I'm excited to use the paper in projects!

Work started off pretty intense right away on January 2nd so the crafting hasn't been happening too much. I'm still knitting away on my Christmas socks and I have some other projects I'll want to be starting soon, but I haven't gotten the chance to finish a lot. I was able to make these Italian-themed thank-you cards for my Mom and nephew. I'm so glad I had a great reason to use this fun stamp set from Newton's Nook. I look forward to making more! Using the dies to cut them out is SO much easier than using an Exacto knife....I can't believe it took me so long to jump on the die-cutting bandwagon!

We're up with my Mom between Christmas and the New Year and I was looking at her office chair when I realized we had updated her living room but the office chair hadn't been fixed up. I wasn't completely positive if we could fix it up,but decided to give it a try.
We headed to Jo-Ann Fabrics where we found the perfect shade of blue in an upholstery fabric. We headed back to the house where Hubby helped take the chair apart so we could recover the seat and redo the backing. He and I pulled tight and reassembled the chair and were pretty happy with the results!
