Projects - unfinished

Wow, what a busy time of the year. I've decided it takes me way longer to finish creating my trade minis than the normal scrappin' sistah. I'm finishing up my trade mini for Ashton in OK. I've been working on it for about a month, sheesh. I have to complete the front & back covers and binding. Then I'll do a vid. I love how this mini evolved.
I used so much from others in this mini. The idea for using pix of vintage seed packets from Kathryn, the fantastic flower technique and Tattered Angel Gimmer Mists from Velma, flourishes sent to me by Roseanne, envelope pocket designs by Marion, Laura and Samantha, fibers from the TWS fiber swap, etc. I never could make a mini if it weren't for the generosity of others in sharing techniques, ideas and products. I love working on my projects; but, this time of the year it seems as though time is much too short. I had hoped to get it in the mail before this week; but, alas alack it didn't happen.
I have so many other projects to start/finish. Tags for Roseanne, Joyce & Steff, a very special mini for Velma, laces to Karina, a mini album for a give-away at the February {Scrap} Beach Virtual Crop and the list continues. I'm not going to sign up for any mini trades for a bit until I finish the honorariums I want to share with others. I absolutely love to have projects "in the hopper" and find myself thinking after I've gone to bed just how I'll be puttling them together. My mind just works faster than my hands.
Alita Long won the November {Scrap} Beach Virtual Crop give away. She sent the most gracious acknowledgment and thank you. It touched my heart to know that she will treasure this mini as a part of her personal collection. Time to go into the Craft Cave to work on my projects - what great fun.
Live long & prosper,


  1. Merry Christmas Weezie! :) I so enjoyed reading your post... what your doing.. how all your treasures come about.. your thoughts and kindness! Weezie, I keep thinking about your mothers buttons.. how you cherish them so.. how you share a little piece of heaven with others as you incorporate them into your mini's that are to be cherished by others... and I am touched and inspired to give those 'silver boxes' too! This holiday as I visit with my mother I will 'take in' all her Motherness and take delight with even the simplest of delights she gives me.. Thank you Weezie for your gentle, thoughtful and giving ways.. but most of all for the gift of remembering to cherish those who we love and who love us. God Bless you and your family this holiday.. Be safe, healthy and May your 2010 be bright and wonderful. Love, Steff
