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.

Happy Birthday Bear

Happy Monday! Hope you all had a great weekend. I've been very tired, so most of my crafts have been pretty simple. But, the DT at Retro Sketches posted this sketch for the challenge this week:

And the challenge at My Time to Craft is using Kraft.

Here is my rendition:
The bottom layer is actually the back side of some Kraft Christmas paper from Recollections. The bear is also made from the same Kraft paper. The polka dot paper is also from recollections. The sentiment was printed off the computer. The pink paper was scrap and the ribbon was also scrap. The bear's face was drawn on with black marker. The cream part of his face was from scrap.

Have a great day!
