Half way through 2011 and I am a little behind.

As far as my crafting resolutions for 2011 go, I am a little behind. 

I did succeed in creating a Birthday/Anniversary Calendar and have mailed a number of cards out this year.  In fact, I just mailed three cards out this morning.  I made lovely Valentine's day cards using Echo Park's Be Mine collection. I am getting a little better at taking photos of my work as well.



I did submit work to Papercrafts magazine and although I did not get selected, I plan to continue submitting work.  Hopefully one day I will see one of my cards published.  Here is the birthday card I submitted.  It was a color challenge and the project need to incorporate teal, yellow, light blue and green in one card.

I set out to accomplish ten goals and so far I have managed to complete four, not too shabby and I still have 5 months left!  I probably won't be at any craft fairs or farmers markets this year.  I simply cannot produce enough product to fill a booth.  Maybe one day. 

Clearly my intentions of updating my blog regularly has fallen by the wayside.  I am not quite sure how it ended being the end of July, but I hope to get back on track now.  I am still a little overwhelmed at the thought of scrapbooking.  Cards I find to be less daunting.  The massive amounts of photos and ideas for our wedding scrapbook may simply be too much for me to start to imagine tackling but I plan to muster up some courage soon.  We are going to be celebrating our 4th anniversary in September and it is a shame all those memories are squirrelled away in boxes.

And finally, a lot of blogs are talking about Christmas in July.  Here is one of my projects from last Christmas.  I was invited to a cookie exchange and made pizzelle cookie packages using American Crafts Merrymint paper. I am enamored with pleated paper flowers.

I hope to post some pictures of my craft room in my next post.  I am really proud of how organized it is and I am planning to paint the walls and do a little more decorating in there soon.
