Paper Crafts 101...a new special issue by Paper Crafts Magazine...arrived on my doorstep recently!

It's full of fun ideas - all organized by technique or product. If you're familiar with their magazine, you know they have a regular column that's PC 101 - this is very similar in style. Each chapter starts with several mini projects - each project showing a variation of the theme/technique. I was lucky enough to be asked to contribute to this issue - what an honor - and I am in such great company! Two of my "mini projects" are on the cover - the "bliss" accent, and the little row of flowers with eyelet centers.

And here are a few more projects I created for this issue:

If you're in the market for a new idea book, I'd definitely recommend this one - no matter what your level of skill.

Thank you for all of the sweet comments about Meagan's haircut. She is liking it - especially the less snarly and quick wash/dry/style aspects! :o) She had a similar cut once before, in the summer of 2004. So her hair has been growing for about 3 1/2 years with a few trims along the way. I sure wish my hair would grow that fast!


  1. WOW! You are so creative! Sometimes I think it's unfair that some people seem to have gotten all the talent when it comes to creating such clever and cute things. But then I am just thankful that people like you are willing to share your talents and what you do with the rest of us! :)

  2. Hey what fun cards. You are so awesome! My fav is the cloudy/sunny one :)
