Merry Christmas

Hello everyone and welcome to my blog!

Last week I had a Halloween card to show you showcasing some of the awesome products from the Pinque Peacock shop and today I thought I would do another Holiday card and go with a Christmas theme. (You can never have enough Christmas cards lol )

With this card I decided to show you some of the beautiful pins that Jessica can make for you. She has so many wonderful colors that you can get just about any kind you are looking for to match your project that you are working on! 

I absolutely love these pins and they are one of my most favorite things in the shop :)

I also used one of the  Petaloo flowers from a pack that I bought from the shop to top off my 3 Girl Jam Ribbon. 

If you want to see more of the items she has available just hop on over to the shop and check it out for yourself. You won't be disappointed :)

Have a great day!!

Creative Blog Tour

Hello everyone and welcome!

I am excited to be a part of the Creative Blog Tour :)  I was invited to take part in it by Janet from She is a super talented lady that I have had the pleasure of being on a Design Team together.  

I have gotten to know many people through blogging and Design Teams. I love being able to visit everyone's blog and see what they are up to at the moment! Everyone is so creative and inspirational with all of the things that they do :)

1. What am I working on?  
I have been working on Design Team Projects, gifts for my nieces for the concert they were going to and projects for my business that I just recently started Southern Created.

This is the card I made for my DT post.

I used some Halloween  papers " Chillington Manor "  added some black soot TH ink to the sides of the cardstock and then added a Pleated Petal from the Pinque Peacock shop.

I also made these shirts for my nieces going to their most favorite band's concert!

Actually I think my niece is obsessed with them LOL.. aahhh to be a teen again and have a crush on your favorite band LOL

These are a few of the projects I have been working on for my business page :)

 A personalized key holder...
A personalized tall skinny acrylic cup.
and some football shirts for the little league mom's :) 

and I am also working on some Frozen themed ornaments and other Christmas ornaments. 

2. How does my work differ from others of it's genera ? 
I guess you could say my work is clean and somewhat simplistic. I'm not a messy crafter ( well unless you count the craftroom LOL)  I don't use a lot of pastes or glitters on my projects. 

3. Why do I write/create what I do?
I have always been exposed to crafting. My mother has made a wide range of things ever since I was a little girl. I guess that is where I got my crafting bug from. I love to do everything from cards and scrapbooking to personalized growth charts and wedding tiles :)  

4. How does your writing/creating process work?
I usually just play around with things I have until I get the look I am going for. 

I have a couple more creative bloggers that will be sharing with you next Monday the 29th. 

My sister just got into blogging and loves sharing her new ventures with everyone and you can find her blog here at Happy Homesteading. She has some awesome things going on over there so check it out next Monday :)

I also have a wonderful friend who I am currently on a DT with to share some awesome projects with you Rhonda at Flowers and More by Rhonda. She always has something beautiful to share. 

Thanks for joining me on this Blog Tour :)  Have a great day !
