CPS 282

     Hi, friends! I'm getting my mojo back after a very unsuccessful craft show last weekend. I was disappointed in my one or two sales (although I was very grateful for those!) I did meet some nice people and got to hang out with my sister for the afternoon, which is always fun! I had to remind myself that I'm not doing these fun little projects to make money but because I just love to make stuff!

     I decided to play along with the sketch at CPS this morning to get in the spirit of things again, and since Christmas always sneaks up and pounces on me unprepared, I'll be doing a lot of Christmas cards in the near future.

     Here was the CPS sketch for the week:


     And here's my take on the sketch:


     I used scraps from my favorite Echo Park Christmas collection, some goodies from the sticker sheet, and some twine and crochet lace. I'm loving how you can use Copic markers to color on white pearls!!

     I hope you have a wonderful weekend, my friends! I'm off to make a decadent potato casserole for a gathering with with some friends and my fabulous auntie and uncle who are visiting from far away. See you soon!
