Just Opened: Bits and Pieces Etsy Shop!

I'm so excited! I've wanted to open an Etsy shop for a while and I finally uploaded my first items yesterday. (I even made my first sale, woo hoo!) I added the little side bar thingy so that you can see what I have. I've made so many cards over the years and it makes me sad to see them piled up in the closet. Hopefully, some will be able to find loving homes. Eventually, I hope to add some fun vintage trinkets and finds for cardmaking. I have a ton of trims and such and I think this would be a great addition. So, please stop by and check it out. :)

It's been almost a week since I've gotten home and I think I'm FINALLY getting into the swing of things. I got the last of the suitcases unpacked, put away the laundry and got back to work. Last week was crazy, but so much FUN, with the Webster's Let's Celebrate Promotion. I actually can take a breather this week - hope to play along with some challenges.

Thought I'd share a page that I made recently. I have been trying to do more 'boyish' stuff for Ryan's scrapbooks and this line by Crate is just perfect.



He was goofing around one day and I thought I'd record all the things he loves to play at this point in time. The Crate chipboard and colors are so fun!



I added some texture by folding the strip of paper along the top of the journaling box.



I have some ideas for cute boy cards to make with this line. Goodness knows we always need them for birthday parties and such!

Thanks for stopping by today. And if there's anything in particular you'd like to see in my Etsy shop, let me know.

Have a great day! ~
