I saw Instagram posts of cards made using these sets and I think I'll be spending quite a bit of time recreating my favorites, stay tuned!!

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!

At one of our recent knitting afternoons a member of the Knit Nuts mentioned that she had never seen the movie 'It's A Wonderful Life'. As a HUGE fan of the movie I decided to see if the ladies would like to come over and have a Christmas get-together at my house and watch the movie.
The ladies were excited and carpooled to my home, and I had pasta bake, salad, a grape and cheese tray and a festive nonalcoholic drink ready to enjoy.
The drink had cranberry seeds, pomegranate seeds, halved green grapes and diced green apples and then sparkling grape juice poured over the fruit. It was so pretty and festive!
We ate and chatted and exchanged our treats...
And then it was off to the movie room to watch the movie and knit.
And at the end, surrounded by friends, when Clarence leaves the message that no man is a failure who has friends....I felt so moved and grateful!
