Are you sitting down??

Yep....it's me updating my poor neglected blog. I have been C-R-A-Z-Y busy with my new business. YOU can check it out here: ARTFul Salvage. We are been having a great time, building glass and doing shows.

I have managed to join a few swaps and actually played with paper today. :) I KNOW...who knew!! LOL

Anywho.....I was to make 2 corner bookmarks, 2 ATC's and 1 card/envie. The themes were to be from a list we were given that had all of the holidays (big ones and unheard of holidays) for the Month of May. I chose "May 7th - the 1st Stamp Collection was Started on this day" for both my bookmarks and my ATC's.

The corner Bookmarks are uber easy. You simply cut the corner off of an envie and decorate it to you heart's content. Here are the directions. I used some old postage stamps and some new rubber stamps and created these bookmarks.

Here is the envie after I cut off the corner.

The ATC's are pretty self explanatory, using the leftovers from my stamp paper envies and corner bookmarks.

I also had a card/envie to make. I used my DCWV Green Stack and made this cutie patootie little OWL card. I just did some simple embellishments using my glaze and glitter pens.
