I really can't believe it's been over a year since I posted to my blog. 2011 was a year with not a lot of Craft Cave time. I had quite a bit of stress and didn't seem able to get my craft mojo working. I retired in November, 2011 and hope to spend more time in the Craft Cave and post to my blog and YouTube regularly.
I "kept my fingers in the pie" with a few tag swaps. Thanks to Velma Griffin who hosts the best monthly swap! Velma's swap is truly an easy swap in which to participate. The guidelines are simple - your tag can be simple or a mini tag kit or a completed tag, but; it must contain a stamped image. The variety of tags swapped is amazing. If you have time only for a simple stamped image on a tag, great. If you want to put a little tag kit together, great. If you want to complete a tag, great. Velma's swap has kept me scrappin' in 2011.
In the early fall and I do mean early fall, Rosanne (Roxycar11) and I decided to swap minis - great idea - I love her work. Each of us have met with time challenges and have kept in touch with regard to the ETA of the finished minis. I'm thankful Rosanne is a patient person. I hope she will find her mini worth the wait. The mini I'm making for Roseanne is in need of a few more tags and front and back covers. I love this exchange because of it's casual nature - stress free. I will be completing the mini, SOON and making a vid for YouTube!
Of course, I couldn't resist the Secret Valentine Swap Tiffy is hosting. So, I'm participating in her swap. I've participated in swaps she has hosted in the past and she does a wonderful job. The guidelines for this swap are very interesting and I'm looking forward to starting.
All is well the the Craft Cave. Looking forward to my 2012 Scrap Happy Year.
Tata for now - Live long & prosper,
