We just wrapped up another Pajama Party* on Thursday, which is defintely our best one yet! We're getting the hang of this live broadcast thing more and more. This time, I remembered to bring my pants, which I can't say for our July show.
I have to share a little project I created for the show, inspired by Amy Powers, instructor of the upcoming Craft Happy workshop ("12 weeks of cheerful projects to celebrate the holidays—and life in general").
Amy is SO fun, generous, and inspiring. See for yourself:
Following Amy's lead, I created my own shadow box project using two jewelry boxes plus one check box. I had to cover mine in paper (embossed kraft paper from Stampin' Up!) to make them all match, but my Xyron Creative Station made it SO easy. I just cut everything to size and turned them all into stickers, with the super strong permanent adhesive cartridge!
I've been looking for an excuse to use my Simply Jane stamps and dies from PaperTrey Ink, as well as these papers from Bazzill Basics. I stamped, I die-cut, I embossed, I adhered, I punched, I trimmed, and I stayed up until 3:00 a.m. because I just couldn't stop. It is well, indeed, to have as many holds upon happiness as possible.
Swoon. What can I say? I love all things Jane Austen. And yes, those really are Jane Austen BandAids (although since they're not the BandAid brand, I should call them "bandages" or "sterile strips," in honor of my journalistic training).
And yes, they really do make grown-up-girl owies feel better.
