Graphic 45 Valentine's Challenge

If you ever want to challenge yourself, work with new products or even get inspired by others' work, try one of the many project challenges you can find on the web. 

Two of my favorites are Tim Holtz' 12 Tags of 2013 (I posted a few from 2012 last year), and Graphic 45. 

This month Graphic 45 put out a challenge on their blog for a Valentine's Day project.

Though it doesn't scream "Valentine's Day" I posted a romantic tag I did last night. 

Their aim was to get everyone to use their "Place in Time" paper, which I don't have. But I ordered it, it should arrive by Wednesday and I'll use it this week to make a project that's been in my head for over a month then post that as well. 

The contest ends February 28th if you're interested.  :) And you can post multiple projects!!

Time to Yourself

What do you do when you have time to yourself? On the rare days that I have the house all to myself, I leave the house. If I don't I'll clean or pay bills. 

When I say "leave the house", though, I really mean I close and lock the doors and head to my Craft Room. I put a Chick Flick in the DVD player and watch without the fear of a child walking in during a completely inappropriate scene.
