Maggie, Pam I love challenge blogs too! They are soo addictive! I have them neatly (ok not so neatly ) grouped in my Google Reader now so I just go browse through them every morning after checking mails.

Good morning!

Nancy, glad to hear you are feeling better!

Chaitali, I have only made the little basket so far, but it seems pretty sturdy! It would safely hold a handful of chocolate! I am going to try the bigger size soon and will let you know how stout that one is! Awesome tutorial on your blog today, btw!!

Celle, you can make the baskets from a 6x6, 9x9 or 12x12 square!

Maggie, will keep my fingers crossed for all positive results with your lab work! Also, I think the retired stamps blog give-away idea is brilliant! Those retired stamps are like gold to some folks! Sometimes they are hard to find!

Pam, I think it is great that you are diving in to all the challenge blogs!! It is a super way to get us to stretch our creativity...plus just so much darn fun!! Oh and sorry about not sharing that chocolate! LOL

Carolina, hope you guys are still on the mend! Been thinking about you!

Prema, hello! Hope you are having a great Friday!

What's everyone got planned for the weekend? We are having company! My sis in law is coming for a short visit!

Woooo Hoooo! Sounds like happy noise to me!! Have you thought about how you are going to decorate your new scrap room?! Soooo excited for you!

The small basket is big enough to hold 1 1/2 plastic Easter eggs! It isn't tiny, but isn't huge! I am getting ready to sit down and try to make the next size up and see how much bigger that one is. Will post pics when it is finished.

Good afternoon ladies. Low key weekend for me. I hope to have the time to get lots done - not going anywhere except to the PO in the morning to send off Easter boxes to my DGD in college and my other DD still at home. I'll make a stop at the grocery store to pick up some essentials and then that's it.

Yard man is coming after 10 to plant my azalea shrubs I bought the other day and 2 Knock Out rose bushes. Hope they survive this summer. I lost all my new azaleas and roses last year during our very extra hot drought.

Nancy, I know that you are so excited that you're going to have your own space soon. It would be so nice to be able to start from scratch. If I could, I'd redo mine, but there is too much stuff to drag out of there and redo. I'm trying to do some little by little.

That sounds like a good way to organize them. I've been trying to figure out something for me. I don't really have the time to check every day, but that sounds like a good start.

Also, congratulations, Maggie, on winning the prize! And good luck with your blood tests. I hope they came out okay. I just had mine last Friday, and the doctor told me we're good to go (no diabetes -- yay!).

Nancy, feel better.

Hugs to everyone, and I hope everyone is staying warm!

Celle

Carolina, I hope your kids feel better soon.
Thanks.

Glad to hear your blood work came out okay. That's always great to hear. No word yet on mine. If I don't hear today, I'll call the office on Monday. I want them to fax me a copy.

Thou can fill the little one with chocolate foil eggs. They would make good favors.

Good afternoon ladies!!!. I've been busy all day, didn't have enough time to check it earlier. I went to the dentist in the morning and... ANNMARIE... I made a basket!!!. I loved it so much that I needed to try it. I made it for the April Guest Designer contest at MFT. I play every month with no luck. My cards are not working for that contest so I made your basket instead. Let's see if I have a chance this month. I LOVE IT!!!.
Ladies I hope you are all having a great day. Kiddos are fine. So for me today is pizza night with a movie and right to bed .

There seems to be interest in having challenges and maybe some swaps? How does this sound to everyone:

*We all sign up for the month of our choice.
*On your month you will announce a challenge on the 1st.
*Gently remind everyone about your challenge one week in!
*As hostess you can offer a small prize for the winner (TOTALLY OPTIONAL!!). NO pressure to do so!!
*We all post our projects on our blog (and here also if you would like!) on the 15th!

Easy peasy!

***Challenges can be anything you like!
*Cards/Scrapbook pages
*Sketch Challenges
*Color challenges
*3d projects
*Use a certain type of....to make...
*Anything goes!! Be creative! Challenge the group to think outside of their box!!

I will take April and will post our first challenge tomorrow! (Due April 15th!!)

Let me know which month you would like to sign up for and I will keep the running list in post #3!!

Default As for swaps...

As for swaps I am going to leave that totally open to you guys!! Whenever anyone gets a wild hair and wants to host a swap... jump on it and GO FOR IT!!! These will be optional! Play along if you would like, if you are too busy or just don't want to...no big deal! No hurt feelings!! This is a stress free group!

Purpose/point of swaps are to exchange things with folks! They can be one on one or make one for each group member. It is always fun to get 'happy mail!'

Some swap ideas are:
-Card kits
-Scrap book kits (paper, embellishments etc)
-Image swaps
-Colorburst swaps
-Card swaps
-Secret Sister swaps
-Tag swaps
-Dollar spots exchanges
-Handmade Jewelry swaps
-Travel/circle journals
-Handmade mini albums
-Fun sock exchanges

The list just goes on and on!! Whatever you can dream up! Throw the idea out there and see if there is interest!! I will keep a running list in post #4.

All up to you guys...

Pam, I am having trouble posting to your blog. Twice I typed a comment and hit submit and no comment. No message that it needs to be approved either.

Oh no! I had 4 comments this morning to be approved, and I think yours was one of them. Thanks for visiting!

I don't have any commitments for this weekend YAY!!! Hopefully, I'll get to play in my scrapping room.

Ok, you probably have two comments from me then. It didn't give any message that comments would be saved for approval so I didn't think the went through!

Thanks AM for the links. Mi will check them out. I only own 3 circle punches.

If the shapes are standard ones then maybe I can cut them out on my circuit.

Default Baskets

Hey guys!

Just finished making a bigger basket and thought I would share the size comparison shots! The green one is from a 6x6 square and the orange one is from a 9x9.

Good morning ladies! Happy April Fool's Day! Got any tricks you're going to play on anyone?

Ann Marie - I'll take July for the challenge. Will have to give some thought to the swaps. We just have to remember that we can't swap card kits or images that are copyrighted.

I'm spending time in my stamp room today. It's nice sometimes to not have any commitments.

I think it depends on their angel policy. Wish RAK members still request and send stamped images. They have a list of stamp companies angel policies. So you need to check before you make a request if you are allowed to send stamped images.

AM----WAKE UP WAKE UP!!! You have to announce the challenge!!! I might be able to work on it today

Hi guys!! I am SOOOOOOOOOOOO sorry that I didn't get the challenge posted earlier! My day has been N-U-T-T-Y!!! We had company all weekend and my oldest son had a terrible allergic reaction to the sun today (we knew he was allergic) but today's reaction was awful. Then this afternoon while I was away from the puter I checked my phone to see that my very first post for the design team I just made(( that wasn't supposed to post until Tuesday)) was posted big and bright as ever on my blog!! I about fainted!!! LOL I must have put in the wrong date when I pre-set it to post! I rushed home and had to delete the whole silly thing to get it off of there! *Phew!!* Crazy, nutty day!!

LOL Anyhow...so sorry! I will post now!!

Default APRIL'S CHALLENGE!!!!

Welcome to our very first challenge!! According to Merriam-Websters definition of the word challenge means:

Challenge: to invite into competition!! So that being said...I cordially invite all of you lovely ladies to accept my challenge! It will require you to step outside of your crafting box and try something a little different! Don't be afraid! (and please don't throw stuff!! I am really very nice!) LOL

Here goes:

I challenge each of you to make a matching 3d paper purse and shoe!!! Say whaaaat?!!! I am including a link here to a blog post with shoe pattern (or you can make your own!!). There is a photo of a finished shoe and also a snazzy You Tube Video showing all of the how to's! You can click on the pattern to enlarge it so you can print it out!

Artful Affirmations: The Elegant Shoe Tutorial

You can make any sort of matching purse you would like as long as they match some how (color, paper, accessories etc!!) Here are some links to videos for purses:

Paper Purse Tutorial - YouTube

Mini Purse or Treat Holder - YouTube

Little paper Purse 6x6 DSP www.frenchiestamps.com - YouTube

Mini Shopping or Gift Bag - YouTube

These will be due April 15th! Please post them on your blogs and feel free to post them here as well!

Holler with any questions!! Cannot wait to see what you guys are going to come up with!

This will be fun. I know what I can use the purse for but haven't figured out the shoe yet!

What do you do with a paper shoe?

WHAAAAAAAAAT???. YOU ARE KILLING MEEEEE!!!!. Your basket took me the whole afternoon !!!. LOL!!!. I'm not a fan of altered projects... but then I saw that vintage shoe!!!. I LOVE IT!!!. Well, I really have to "get out" of the box (not only think outside of it...). THIS is a real challenge... but... I love challenges as well. Now I can't wait to see everyone's creations!!!. This is going to be FUN!!!. So sorry I was missing this weekend. We had people over yesterday as well and today after church I had to pick my son's baseball uniform. He is doing his first sport!!!
AnnMarie, so sorry about your sun...really??? allergic to the sun???, that's a hard one . i hope he is doing well now.

Oooh, I'm excited about this challenge. But also a little worried, since this is our first challenge.

Hi, everyone! I hope everyone had a great weekend.
