Well i remember what i loved about quilting years ago.......taking gorgeous fabrics, cutting them and sewing them back up to create a design.........yep, love it still and i can say that i have been very productive this past few months creating 9 quilted projects from full size to runners i'm pleased with what i've accomplished (using up my stash in the process feels great) and i'll share pics when i get the bindings all handsewn up.
Did get some stamps in the mail this week and they are adorable and fun to color......and perhaps i'll win this blog candy Whiff of Joy and add these to my collection of fun images to color and create with.

yep, its a good thing to have and i'm finding more mojo for card creations these days than layout but perhaps its my newfound love of crayons/blending and the amazing adorable stamps Like this magnolia one that have me inspired to make card after card.
Another one here based on a sketch from this cool new blog Mojo Monday that uses the newest BG line in my stash. awesome colors and i think i was looking at the Tilda in her skirt and sham and thinking Happy St Pat's day.........so i'll have to save this card till next march!!

I must say that over the past 10 years I've been scrapping and part of online boards i've seen so much generosity amongst scrappers.......they are always willing to share not only their time and ideas, help and guidance and inspiration but actual GOODIES......lots of giveaways on blogs (like Sarah's here, giving away supplies to celebrate HER birthday, cool hey?) and store owners are always generous with their prizes for crops.....its a pretty neat community that i'm proud to be part of......I'm thinking its time I did a little blog giveaway so watch over the next bit for some spring candy from me.

I decided today to open an Etsy store and see if I could sell some of my handmade cards that way......i seem to make so many over the course of a year, more than i will use so why not? so if you're interested i'm Here (unfortunately when I registered to buy a year or more ago i didn't realize my username would have to be the same if i were to open a shop so even though I have titled it Corry's Creations its under Corrysv2, my account name.......:( no changing it unless i want to start from scratch and lose my rating.)
I hope its worth it..........time will tell.
added a few of my latest creations for ya too.
