As I'm wrapping up my April projects for the blog, it reminds me that May will be right around the corner. That means school will be out, we'll be spending lots of time outdoors, our house will be filled with kids, the pool will be opening, we'll be taking some road trips, tackling some projects, gardening, heading to the lake....and just enjoying the Summer. It makes it a little harder to keep a steady schedule of crafty creations here on the blog but I've got lots of fun, ongoing projects to keep me busy.
I thought I'd share a little lineup of what you'll be seeing throughout the Summer months. I am thoroughly enjoying working with Gossamer Blue. The monthly kits have increased my creativity tremendously and Lori selects the most fantastic products month after month. There will be exciting new things coming up so be sure to stay tuned.
You'll be able to view the Design Team Gallery & purchase new kits on May 1st. Here are some quick facts that might answer some questions you have if you're interested in purchasing the kits. I have some fun sneak peeks to show you for what's coming in May for Gossamer Blue too. My projects will be up in the Gossamer Blue Design Team Gallery + I'll be sharing them here on my blog with mini tutorials.
Here I paired some stamps from my stash with a calendar stamp from the kit.....
There's all sorts of fun embellishments this month, great for collage type projects......
Mixed Media Kit.
In addition to my monthly Gossamer Blue projects, I'll be sharing my art journal pages and more art-like projects. Here's my first attempt using my new Dylusions Creative Journal. This is just a start to my first pages and I'll be sharing the completed layout soon. I have to say that this art journal is fantastic if you're interested in getting started in art journaling. The quality of the pages is really nice and sturdy.
October Afternoon update.....I decided not to renew my contract with October Afternoon so April will be my last month on the Design Team. The products are so great and I look forward to working with them....I'll just be back on the customer side of things now. A big thanks to everyone at October Afternoon for having me and I wish them the best of luck.
And in addition to all this, I've started a Summer bucket list that is getting long already. I'm going to have the girls and Eric add to the list and we'll see what happens. I've got about 3 weeks to prepare before school is out and then we're gonna tackle the list. I'll be sharing some of those ideas in my Summer bucket list post soon.
So tell me...what's going on in your world? Any new crafty projects you want to tackle? Summer projects? I'd love to hear what's on your list.
