It has been a while. First, I am a slacker. And then, we lost internet, phone and cable as a result of the tornado. Just a few days ago we finally got Comcast to come out and reconnect us.

So, here is a cute tag I made for a shower gift. I liked it and Sue, the bride, said that she did too.

I spent a couple of days at Cape Cod for a work conference (how lucky can one get?) so here is a shot of me on Old Silver Beach. The weather was so gorgeous it was hard to stay focused on the workshop speakers.

At some point I have to figure out how to do a better job with photos but that will have to wait for another day.

Easter Tray

Here is the Easter Printer's Tray that I made in a class at Inspiration Station (Stafford Springs, CT). Donna is just so creative and we had so much fun. I took my sister to the class for her birthday. Then we went to lunch. What a wonderful day!

One of my cats got to the chick on the tray so he is looking a bit disheveled. I named the chick Carlos. Go see "Hop' with Russell Brand and Hugh Laurie and Hank Azaria as the voice of Carlos.

Printer's Tray for Richard Gordon

Michael and I (with help from Kim who made the canary in the second box) put together this tray with copies of posters and lobby cards depicting some of Richard Gordon's movies: the Cat and the Canary, Haunted Strangler, Devil Doll and more. We had fun putting it together and Richard said that he was astounded. I am taking that positively.

I took another printer's tray class with Donna at Inspiration Station last week. We put together an Easter Tray. I will try to take a photo soon and post that. It is quite the contrast with this tray.

captured fairy jar

Took a class with BFF Kim. She offered a choice between a water sprite, a meadow fairy and a woodland fairy. Since Kim made me a water sprite for my b-day (I will post a photo later) I chose to make a woodland fairy. My husband wanted to know why an urban fairy wasn't one of the choices so that has me thinking. Smell the smoke?

Anyway, this fairy is in a Marie's salad dressing jar. Talk about recycling!

Here is a photo of a quick and silly card for friend Steve.

Valentine's Printers Tray

Took another class with Donna who is so much fun and we made a Valentine's Printers tray. I am signing up already for the Easter one on April 7. Anyway, I know I'm behind but here it is.
My fave is the little girl on the bingo card. I think that the ribbon really makes her stand out from all the red and pink on the tray.
Kim and I took Donna's class based on the Tim Holtz 12 Days of Christmas tags. They are beeyoutiful. I have yet to take photos but am going to try and do better with my little blog.
