Guitar Card

I was on one of the yahoo group forums and someone was asking about a guitar card/svg.  Intrigued by the idea, I decided to play a little bit and see what I could come up with.  Below is my result.  I've went back and forth because the guitar should have strings and frets, but being so small,  I think it best to draw them on....or even attach string, as opposed to cutting them. Let me know if you like it, and if you use it, I'd LOVE to see your magic!

Interchangable Flip Flops

     I was already to punch a grad book I've been working on with my BRAND NEW CINCH, so I could begin decorating it, only to find out that my Cinch is defective....and I'm going to have to send it back :(.  So, I decided it was time to work on another project as they can't tell me when I will receive my new Cinch as they are on backorder :(.  Being that I'm a bit of a spaz and indecissive, this was easy as I always have my creative hands in many places at the same time :).

     I found this project on the Make It and Love It blog and had to try it (the button to this amazing blog is on the lower right side of my blog)!  This is my first attempt and I think it's a project that is SUPER easy and SUPER cute.  I was too lazy to find the coordinating thread, so I just used what was on my machine to sew the ribbons together (yes, it's bugging the heck out of me).  My plan is to make a bow or small rosette to hide this flaw.  This pair is going to go to a friend in the UP, and I will make a pair for her little sis.  THEN, I can make a pair for me :P.   OH BOY!

New Wordbook

My first love is music.  Not only am I musician (cellist by choice) but I am also a music teacher.  Music fixes so many things for me and I love the act of making music with friends and others.  So it just seems natural for me to make a music related word book.  I'm sure this will be the first of many so I hope you enjoy.  Here's a bitmap of the svg.

I also announced the arrival of my Cinch....and just in case you don't believe me, here's the picture!

I can not WAIT to play with it. A few more details and I'll be ready to punch!!
