Card & Chunky Charm..

Hey guys I received a order from a friend of mine for a card and chunky charm for a birthday gift. I had so much fun making this for her and I already know she loved it. I hope the lady she is giving it to also loves it. She told me her favorite color is green so I tried to keep the green theme in both projects.
I used K & Company paper, metal corners, flat back pearls, lace, stamp, die cuts and
Wild Orchid Craft flowers. I love how this card came out,
this card is 6 x 6 and the tag that the charm is on
is 4 x 8. The charm is 6.5" long. I left the
inside of the card blank so she can
write her own message.

Paper Quilt

So this week I ordered a 20 x 40 piece of tempered glass for the top of my desk. I wanted a new metal and glass desk that I seen at Big Lots but I'm on a very limited budges. I love my old desk that I found at a  Antique store two years ago when I moved to Michigan, so I decided to alter it a bit more. I wanted to create something beautiful to cover the top because It doesn't look very nice. So I created a paper quilt for the top of it out of the same DCWV Lemon Flower Stack paper I used on the drawers that I altered two years ago. Yes I still had some of that paper left lol. Hope you like it, I LOVE how it turned out.

Altered Balsa Box

Here is another project I created for a wonderful friend. It is out of the same paper as the mini and the card I will be posting tomorrow. I just love the Prima Madeline paper stack, by the time I'm done with this set I will be out and I'll just have to buy another 6 x 6 pad lol. I used Wild Orchid Craft flowers on this project Like I do on most of my work. I am in love with WOC. The butterfly I made out of clay in my MS molds I have. I used blue felt on the bottom of this box. I really like to finish the bottoms with felt so it doesn't scratch where ever or what ever she puts it on.

Anxiety SUCKS....

I have to share a story, that some of you already know. January 22nd of 2010 I was robbed at gun point in my office at Public Storage in Las Vegas, Nv. A man came in said he wanted to buy some tape. When I rang it up and opened my cash draw he came around the counter and put a gun in my face. I gave him all the money $86.00.. I still have nightmares of that day. That robber took so much more then the phone and money that day. I have terrible anxiety from this event in my life, every time I see someone that reminds me of him I hide, grab on to the back of Steve's shirt and hide behind him or if I'm alone in the store I hurry around the corner. I just can't live like this anymore. Last night we went to Long John Silver's for supper, after ordering we turned around and on the bench was a man that reminded me of that man who robbed me...I started breathing hard, grabbed Steve and hide. Then I said NO NO MORE Terrie dont let this run your life. I grabbed Steve by the arm walked him over to the bench and sat down right by this man. Even though I was proud of myself I cried on the way home. Still I am so proud of myself. I Don't want to be scared and have this paralyzing anxiety anymore...

Paper Bag Mini

Hi Chickies this is my very first Paper bag mini inspired by Janis, she sent me a large paper bag mini and I loved it so much I had to make one for a friend. So this mini is 3.5 x 6 inches, and I'm making a Balsa box and card from the same paper collection. The paper I used is Prima Madeline I just love this paper its so beautiful and as you all know I adore Prima. I wanted to keep it pretty but simple with not a ton of flowers on it believe me there is plenty of flowers on the box and card lol. Sorry I haven't been posting much but I'm back on youtube and I will be posting more on my blog now.  I will also be making more Youtube videos I promise lol. Talk soon ;)

I hope everyone is doing great, I know I haven't been posting anything lately but you know it's summer time lol. Been camping, swimming and fishing. But this week I will get a project finished to put in here. I bought my new laptop yesterday and I'm totally in love. I got a new Dell Inspiron, although Windows8 is a bit weird at first, I'm getting use to it now and it has a few things about it I really do like. I'm going to use my old laptop for my photos and digis because I don't want to have a bunch on this laptop, I'd like to keep it as clean as possible. 
We went camping last weekend up to Sand Lake not to far from Lake Huron just up from Standish Michigan. It was cool and rained but we still had a great time. We went shopping in a town right on Lake Huron, the side walks were brick and there was a little dinner where you can sit outside and eat, beautiful town I told Steve I wanted to move there lol....
Have a safe rest of the weekend..
