Superbowl Sunday

Today is Superbowl Sunday. Not that I really care, I am NOT a football fan (at all). Just seems appropriate to acknowledge it since the bulk of the country will be watching the game tonight. So GOOD LUCK to both teams.

I've actually been very busy this weekend finishing up a swap that is late. I try not to be late on my swaps but sometimes it is inevitable. This particular swap was a Heart Art Swap. I'll post a few images below, but the bulk of them will be on my Flickr account. I think my little tin box turned out great!

The theme of this swap was HEART ART ...and "I" (who is slacking up in the 'multitasking' department) didn't create this exactly how the swap hostess wanted. I think the title "Heart Art" kind of explains it all. Here's a close-up of the "heart" I added (as the only hearts I had on it were the tiny pink heart beads).



Below is the inside of the tin. The text on the left is actually script from the "Victoria" magazine underneath. The tin covers are see-through. I think the magazine and the tin photograph well together don't you?



Here is the tin closed. This crepe paper on top is from my 11 year olds 2 year birthday party. I saved it...because, I like to drive my husband C rA Z y!



Friday night was my Pizza and Valentine workshop. A BIG thank you to everyone who came out. I hope you all had fun (it sure looked like you did). Remember, the first Friday night of every month I hold a class upstairs at Whole Foods. Cost is $10 for 3 cards and you get to socialize with your stamping friends!





Now, i'm off to create a Artistic Art Frame for my stampers club tomorrow night. I'm also preparing for Scrapfest which will be here before I know it. Busy, busy, busy!

Have a great Superbowl everyone!

I have to laugh!
Superbowl Sunday - Who cares?
Hey, I do!
This is one of the best Sundays of the year!!!
Why?
Because it is guarenteed that my husband will be glued to the television the better part of the afternoon/evening leaving me free to create!!! It's like having an adult baby sitter! Woohoo! I just toss him a sandwich and a bag of chips and I have the entire evening to "play"

Yep... Just gotta love Superbowl! I think they should have a monthly Superbowl!!!

Mel, your tin is beautiful, love that crepe paper band. I sure wish I could be there for pizza and cards, I love the concept and it so comfortable looking, what a great way to spend a girls night out! I think I am going to have to institute something like that. Love your idea.
