Wow - I can't believe it's been OVER A YEAR since I posted anything here!
I suppose that's mostly because I haven't worked on a lot of stuff, so there hasn't been much to post. Seems my creative bug took a major backseat. It rears it's little head every now and then, but doesn't seem to stay around for long.

I REALLY want to be crafting more. And I really want to be blogging more. I'm going to try...we'll see how it goes.

My dear sweet cousin got married in May and she asked if I could make some stationary sets for her bridesmaids. So I did...and I had fun making them. I did sets of monogrammed cards, beaded pens and magnets. This was my first try at the magnets. They didn't turn out perfect, but I liked them enough that I'll try them again and see if I can do even better.

Here is one of the sets I made:

Her wedding colors were ivory and peridot green, with pink as an accent. I could not figure out a way to work the pink in that made me happy, so I just didn't include it.
I created the monograms in Word and printed them out. I really like the way they turned out.
they each got a set of 8 cards and a matching beaded pen.

I had these great little acrylic boxes they fit perfectly in. Here's a view from the side:

And of course, I couldn't give these to her without having created a set for the bride as well! I had run out of the green paper, so I went more neutral with hers and used brown.

And then I made the magnets using the glass pebbles. Each girl received 4 magnets - 2 with their first initial, and 2 with patterned paper.

I used small round tins to put the magnets in, decorated with the same paper. But I forgot to take a picture of them. that I've posted, I will do my best not to let another year go by before I post something else! LOL!
