Charming Necklace

This is the Necklace kit I received in Erin's class at CU. After a great demonstration and practice using a pipecleaner and three noodles I made this!I, of course, didn't follow Erin's instructions. All the charms are supposed to be on the circle of the clasp. I spread mine out so that all the charms are visible. I have changed it twice and I still think it isn't balanced. What do you think?

Cards I made at CU

These are three cards I made at CU on Friday. These cards totally changed my mind about this paper packet. It is called Mayberry and I didn't think I would order it. Then I made these darling cards and changed my mind. If you would like to order this paper or anything else from Close To My Heart click on the link to the left and shop 24/7 and have your items delivered to your house. If you prefer you can always call me and place an order. I will deliver it to you when it arrives. If you need the newest Idea Book let me know or browse online through my website.

Gifts from Creative University

These are just some of the gifts I was given at CU. Super cute and practical. LOVE THEM ALL!
This card organizer is really darling. I love all the ribbons tied on the front. I want to make a couple of these as gifts for my Mom and maybe someone else. I will let you know if I ever get around to it.

Sweetheart Clipboard

Here is the clipboard I made at Creative University. I didn't follow the teacher's instructions. Not a real suprise if you know me at all. It was supposed to be a picture frame. Without any daughters I felt like I wouldn't have a picture to put on here. I guess I could have put my school picture on from this year BUT gag...I don't want to look at myself. I decided to just use it as a clip board. I have this cute notepad with the black and shades of pink lips hanging on my fridge. I stole several pages and put them on my cute new clipboard and viola CUTENESS! I also tied a shorty pen into the ribbons. The roses are really easy to make and fun to bend and mash! I applied GLITZ glitter glue all around the edges and added some pearls to bling it up.

Creative University

This may appear to be just another group of women who got together to do something but, these are some very friendly, talented and fun ladies. I had the great fortune of attending Creative University hosted by the Fabulously Artsy Tresa Black. It was so much more than just fun!!! Over the next several days I will be posting some items I made, some items I received as gifts and the charms and cards I swapped.
Everyone is wearing the Logowear for this year. The colors were red, black and grey. Perfect for the University of Utah fan as well. Go Utes!
