Yes, I feel like issuing an "APB" for two gorgeous silk plant hangers that I made myself early this past August; for they came up missing off my front porch during the wee hours of one dark night this week already! I'm telling you, I am not the luckiest person this side of the Rockies! Take a look at one of them in this photo below and you'll see why I'm so sick in the pit of my stomach!
Speaking of attics, that's what I worked on all day today. I cleaned my attic, complete with a good vacumming! My BFF and I have vowed this is the year we will minimize our lives and excess "stuff", but she is well known for out-working me in this department. I am a natural pack-rat by birthrights, so it's extremely difficult for my Gemini mind to decide what things I can toss out and truly live without. However, I do feel good about getting the attic in better shape and clean. At least that's a good starting point to this year's minimizing project! Yeah for me!
I was roaming around through digi-shop forums and happened upon the Supreme Team IX contest going on at GDS. Deadline for entry was Tuesday night, Feb 2nd. I just happened to be there, so I signed up to participate in the contest with the rest of 180 contestants! Whew! That's a lot of folks! Out of that number only 12 will be selected to be a part of the site's CT team for a 4-month term. We are only in the first round of competition, and there will be a total of 4 rounds with eliminations each week. The kit provided us for the first round was "Sew Chic" by Tricia Curtis Designs, and we each had to make a layout from it using nothing extra other than the kit and whatever capabilities are inside our scrapping software programs. Here's what I did with it:
GDS under the heading of "Supreme Team IX Contest Gallery, Round 1". The competition is stiff, going to be too many great ones. I don't expect to make it past the first round, but it's fun to try anyway. You always make new friends hanging out in the shop forums!
Well, that's all I have to harp about tonight, peeps! I hope to be back sometime tomorrow with a "FRIDAY FREEBIE" for you all, so stop back by! Bless You, and Happy Scrapping!
