What's Up? and blog candy

Hi There--
I am MIA a bit this week because I have undertaken the HUGE task of moving my craft space back down to my craft room (from my bedroom.)
I moved it upstairs when my husband was deployed and now that he has been home a few months....he thinks it is best that it moves back to the cave :)

The good news---I will have TONS of good things to share soon. I NEED to purge in order to make room for the new!

In the meantime, how would you like to win the new issue (May/June) of Crafts 'n Things Magazine? I love this magazine for the variety of projects they offer. It is fun to see so many other craft ideas and figure out how i can relate them to paper: Here is a card I have in the current issue:

And this card was in the March/April issue:

If you would like to be entered to win the May issue, just leave a comment on this post and let me know your favorite crafty projects besides cards! You have until Friday, April 23 at 8 p.m. central time to enter. Random.Cara will pick a winner and you will have four days to contact me after that. (Subscribers can enter twice!)
Thanks for stopping by! Back to work!

Oh good luck Cammie moving all your stuff, that will probably take a long time! LOL! You are probably better off alone in the cave when dealing with all the crafty goodies, don't want DH realzing how much you really have! LOL! Fabulous cards! You did an amazing job with that butterfly!

Love the butterfly card...very realistic. I just finished...and when I say just finished I mean minutes ago :)...making a topiary for my mom for mothers day using a styrofoam ball, felt flowers cut with my cuttlebug, a wooden dowel and a small ceramic pot...oh and tons of corsage pins. It turned out great!

Thanks so much for the chance to win some candy. I love, love, love making cards but my next favorite thinf is scrapbooking. It justs takes me longer to do.

Sue D said...

Great cards! Besides card making I like to knit, cross stitch and do simple sewing projects. I am reading about how to felt wool and will try that next. I would like to also learn how to crochet to make little flowers for my cards.

Hey Cammie, since I am probably older then the majority of you, I have tried and enjoyed every craft that has come along. Macrame, tole painting, cross stitch, embroidery, flower arranging, cake decorating, crocheting. Right now I am working on a scrap book for my grand daughter who will be 21 on May 3rd. She is the daughter of my son, Scott that died in Feb. It is a very hard project to work on, but I believe one that she will hold close to her heart.

Shelia said...

Since I am a subscriber here is my free chance. Thanks for brightening my days with your creative masterpieces.

Betty Neville said...

I just moved my stuff too so I can feel your pain! Beautiful cards as always! I enjoy embrodery when not doing paper crafts - but I do very little of it.

Donna said...

I sometimes walk to the library on my lunch hour to check out Crafts 'n Things and can always pick out your cards. They just jump off the page at me. We are renovating our basement and I've been crafting out of boxes but next week the carpet will be installed and after I move everything back I'm hoping to be able to get down to some serious crafting. What do I do besides cards? At the moment I am making 60 notebooks for Girl Scout leader recognition night, a desk set for our membership services manager and boxes for Hershey kisses for troop organizers. But my real second love is cross stitching. I have several projects in the works. One is a Indianapolis Colts pillow for my son who is a huge Peyton Manning fan for Christmas. (I had to start early so I'd have plenty of time. I love to cross stitch but it's the sewing that will hang me up. LOL!) Thanks for the chance to win! Sorry I wrote a book!

In addition to cards, I like making small chipboard albums and all things 3-D.

Joy said...

Cammie..beautiful cards.. I would have to say my next best past time that is somewhat on the hobby/craft level is genealogy. I enjoying gathering info about my ancestors. Thnx for the chance to win..

Jan Castle said...

Great cards Cammie! I especially enjoy the handmade cards, but also do photography and use them to make cards. Scrapbook too...but not my favorite.

Diane said...

Besides paper crafting, I love to sew, and needle felt....also have bought most of the "stuff" to try my hand at rug hooking...I have way too many interests which results in way too much stuff...but it makes me hjappy...can relate to the moving of the "room"...I have been renovating mine forever...it should be done soon...good luck!!

Diane said...

Casmiles said...

omg - what besides cards. If you were to look in my craft room, you would swear it was a craft store! I've been really getting into boxes these days, just a short jump from cards. And I dabble in jewelry; paper beads, shrinky dink and lot and lots of beads.

Casmiles said...

Cammie - my second entry (subscriber). What a patient hubby you have, sharing your bedroom with crafts all this time he's been home. Wow...you've got a keeper!

Heidi G said...

Besides paper crafts, I love to knit and crochet. Thanks for offering the blog candy.

CountessLaurie said...

I suppose having your husband back makes it worth having to move your craft room :-) (We are glad he is back safe!!)

Your cards are lovely! Thanks for sharing!

I'm in the middle of a studio re-org and know the chaos. I always love your creations and find myself mostly working with paper based crafts, but do enjoy a bit of painting - usually on terra cotta pots for gifts.

Spicey Cat Chick said...

Not sure if it counts, but I subscribe to your feed through Google Reader. I don't think that puts my in your cool Follower Group list on the blog though.

Jo said...

Cammie, Love these cards your creations are always so inspiring. I am always torn between my two hobbies, paper crafting and quilting. It's like I have to set one aside to work on the other. I hope that when I retire someday that I will have enough hours in the day to do both all the time.

Lori said...

Can't really blame your husband, now can we??? I do needle work, right now I am doing a needlepoint.

windycindy said...

A pipe just burst in the ceiling of my little craft room (it's in the basement under the kitchen) so I am in the midst of tearing out the carpet and reorganizing. What a chore but the good news is that I have found a lot of goodies I have stashed away so when I do finally get it all back together, I will have my stuff out where I can find it to play with! Yea!!!
Good luck with your room! :o)

Barbara said...

Great cards....love the color blocking and color choices in the butterfly card.

Miss Iowa said...

Your cards are cute! I don't know that I've seen this particular magazine in my area. Besides cards and a little scrapbooking, I like to make little accordion books or triptychs for display.

Gayle C. said...
