About Me

My photo

I am a 37 year old nurse who is currently not working due to medical issues. I have chosen to pass my time crafting, but because I am not working, I have little money to spend on supplies. I have a small stash from while  I was still working but am now using what I have access to around the house. I also use things I can find cheaply at the dollar store, in the dollar bins, on clearance, or buy with coupons at Michaels and Hobby Lobby. I also like to shop thrift stores and garage sales for things to use in my crafting. You would be surprised with what you can find if you aren't afraid to prowl a little.

Here Comes the Sun!!!

I know I have been on a card kick here the past few days. At first it was just to take my mind off the pain. But, since I have been making them, I find them oddly relaxing and very fun.

When I did my colourQ challenge, I somehow made my way to retro sketches (http://retrosketches.blogspot.com/), which is another challenge site which provides a sketch as inspiration. The sketch for this weeks challenge is:

At first I wasn't sure what to do with it. Even the design team examples didn't really get me very inspired. So, I let it drop for a while. Then it hit me! You see, there is about 2 inches of snow on the ground here and I am soooooo ready for spring and some sun. So, I though I would make my own little sunshine. And, here's what I came up with.
Wow, can't wait 'til spring!!!!

Please feel free to leave comments, ask questions.

Have a sunny day!
