Hi, everyone! Well, it’s official I’m going back to work full time on Monday. Not exactly what I wanted to do, but it is something I need to do and give the old retirement nest egg some much needed rest.
Luckily, I found a good job right where I live and my commute is only going to be 5 minutes…..the last time I had a 5 minute commute was when I worked as an attendance clerk for the High School. My hours are pretty sweet too…9 – 5. I get to sleep till 7 and then get myself up and on the treadmill and get my exercise done before I start my day.
Ok, enough about that stuff. Take a look at these flowers. They are all handmade. I’m working on some videos (this is not as easy as everyone makes it seem) and they are going to show you how to make each one of these beauties.
Each time I make one of them I think it is my favorite until I make another one.
This is one of the intricate cuts that is on the solution cartridge Summer in Paris. I cut this using a light weight card stock and it cut beautifully. The blade I was using was not new so that is even more impressive.
I used this piece as an embellishment to airbrush with Copics at the Certification Class. Yhea, I’m going to have to have those power tools. Power tools for crafts…..oh that makes me giddy.
I’ll do my best to get the second video up in the next couple of days on how to make the little roses. Then after that we will have to play it by ear how much I get done now that I’m working 9-5, what a way to make a livin’.
