In stitches...


The Craft-a-torium is in a bit of an organizing overhaul this weekend.  I have stuff everywhere, scraps, bits & pieces strewn about... It's a good thing I have a lot of things in the closet... so I can close that door & hide it all away!  It takes me a long time to get my stuff organized as I get easily distracted.

Take for instance this weekend's card... I found the image from the Tim Holtz Crowded Attic patterned paper already cut out, just waiting to be added to a card... that stopped the re-organization for awhile.  I got out my paper piercer and stitched away to sew up two sides of my main layer to add to the stitch theme of the card.  Chilling out in front of the tv in the AC while hand sewing on a card is a nice way to relax, too.

I saw the sentiment on-line on another person's card, so I just got out the computer and printed it myself in fonts I selected... then of course, I had to add a few more stitch embellishments, and what else does a sewing theme card need but a little button!

Well, back to the re-organization madness.  Happy crafting everyone!
