Happy Easter and Spring!!

Well, it is finally spring here in St. Louis. What a terrible winter we had. Even I was a little sick of the snow and for those of you who know me well, I LOVE snow. And Easter is this weekend ... yea!! Hope you have a Blessed Easter.

The virtual assistant side of my business venture is starting to take off which is great. But that has taken me away from my craft area a little. I did get Easter cards out yesterday. I am attaching a picture of that. I am currently wild about Wild Wasabi and am loving the SU! textured paper. I am also attaching the three cards I designed for our last Stamp Camp which featured all Sell-A-Bration (SAB) sets. We had a good turn out and it was lots of fun. Plus, I have an order for some stationary sets for Mother's Day and had picked out the most adorable stationary box template that I was just itching to try but had no time. Last night I finally got to make it! It was a little time consuming but I LOVE IT!! The Friendship Bloom SAB set is so cute!

Hope you are being creative :) Don't eat too much chocolate this weekend!

Rolling, Rolling, Rolling ....

Well, the orders have begun to roll in ... YEA! and I have had NO time to go down to my craft area. It is finally nice here (no snow and we might have hit 70 degrees today) and I can't justify putting my kidlets in the basement all day. It is suppose to rain on Friday. I don't often hope for that, but I am this week. I am going to try to get down there some tomorrow during the day, too. We will see. Once I get down there I will be on a marathon crafting kick! In the meantime, I have been doing some research and looking for inspiration everywhere ... even my own pj bottoms have got my mind whirling with ideas. I have a few orders for some stationary sets and I found the most gorgeous booklet template that I am so excited to try. Things are rolling and I really couldn't be happier. Just feeling a tad overwhelmed. I will figure out how to balance all this, though, I am not worried. Off to DREAM about being crafty!

Above is last year's Easter card if you are starting to think about yours. Again, I've not done mine yet but I know what I'm going to do when I can squeeze it in. (This card was inspired by wendyberkley on SCS)

50 Uploads!!

I have just reached a SCS milestone and posted my 50th picture to my gallery! Yea! I have lots more to do but this is a start and will give anyone interested in SeaStar Creations a glimpse of some of what I have done. I got my first couple orders this past week and it was SO MUCH FUN to create for someone else. Of course, all the cards I make are for someone else but this was a new and exciting challenge to try to really cater to someone else's taste and needs. It is a scary process and I am still a little nervous about charging for my stuff but hopefully these will be the first of many orders and I will feel more comfortable as I go along. I am including pictures of a couple of the projects that I worked on for friends and others will appear on SCS as I get a few minutes here and there to upload. Off to be creative ....

Busy, Busy, Busy!!

I have been busy working on some orders for SeaStar Creations and am so EXCITED! Thank you, thank you to those who have begun to place orders. I hope you enjoy the things I am making even half as much as I have enjoyed doing them for you! I will post some of the pictures later this evening. I have a fun journal that is drying as we speak that I think turned out super cute!

Remember ... STAMP SETS ARE STILL FOR SALE ... check them out below :)

Be back later tonight ....
