A New Year! More Fun!

  The New Year is starting off with a bang! My sisters and I are hoping to get into a Spring fair . We have applied to the USM Gorham Spring Fair that is held in April. Won't know if we are in until after February 15th , so we are working on projects in hopes we are approved. Time will tell.
   My sisters and I started a company called Sisters' Designs. Calla Lily Studio  My sister, Rochelle has a blog, too. She is over at Creative Corner Studio. Here is a link to her projects: Creative Corner Studio

We enjoy crafting so much that we get together once a week to share and explore new ideas in crafting. We do not have a website but each of us has a blog. My sister, Chris's blog is Calla Lily Studio. Here is a link to her projects:
  We are all gearing up for this year's events. Our goal is not so much to make alot of money but to help offset the expenses for our addiction: Crafting. Our husbands are a big help when it comes to setting up for fairs and taking it down.  We really do appreciate their help. 

 Here is the latest card that I have made for my brother-in-law, Mark. His birthday is in January.. We go out to dinner to celebrate all our birthdays when they come up. 

Happy Birthday, Mark!

  I used some stamps that my son and his family gave me for my birthday. I love the ship and the compass. I cased the layout from a card I had saved to my board on Pinterest.  I think he will like it.
Happy Birthday, Tatum.

   My niece, Emma, has a daughter whose birthday is in February. I love making cards for kids. So fun. I used the stamp and die set from Stampin Up called Birthday Blast. I had the large number die set from Stampin Up and the sentiment. Wish I could make the party but will be away to Florida at that time.

  These luminaries are just two of the ones I am hoping to make for the Spring Fair. The one on the left has a handle on it and the one on the right my sister, Rochelle,  made . She showed me how to make it , so of course I had to buy the die which is a Spellbinders die, I think. I am hoping to make more of them . I like using flowers and ribbon to embellish since it will be spring. 

My Studio

  My goal or resolution for this year is to get more organized with  my crafting supplies. I am pretty happy with what I have done so far. I plan on stamping every set of my stamps in a notebook to help me find just the stamps I need for a project. I will put this in a notebook and have info on where they are in my studio 
  My other goal is to post more on my blog. I have not done as much this past year because of a surgery and health issues. I am feeling more like myself  with foot and health issues really much better. No vertigo for ages now. Also, my hip may have piriformis syndrome.  I think I spelled  it right. Stretching has really helped me. 
  Looking forward to a wonderful year with family, friends, and crafting.
