Framed Friends and Snow!!!
I recently bought a Janome mini sewing machine and had to try it out right away :o) I will be honest...I have never sewn in my life (all 36 years!) and never did take the opportunity to learn to sew (....Sorry, Mom). I followed the manual directions (which were quite vague) and checked out some tutorials: Gina K. and Jody Morrow (so thankful that they had pictures!!!) I stitched the Basic Grey designer paper to Chocolate Chip cardstock and adhered it to the Pink Pirouette cardstock using Sticky Dimensionals (which I highly recommend), I ordered mine from Jody and she has fantastic service and they are a great value... (As a side note, the SU ones don't stay sticky enough for me and these do!) I used the new stamp set from Asela Hopkins Framed Friends again and think these images are so cute! It even looks like there will be a companion set for this revealed Thursday night!! Woo-Hoo! Too cute!
As a side note...down here in NC we had SNOW!!! It has been 5 years since this area has had more than an inch of snow so this was a big deal!
My kids loved it and were out at 8 am and stayed busy in the snow playing until dark. They enjoyed every minute and look forward to getting back out there again today since there is no school! :o)
