Janet Royer Designer Day!

Our Kreative Karma

Good Morning! It's been cold in my neck of the woods... hope you're staying warm if it is in yours as well. This month our theme has been Hobbies! I started crafting at an early age with two aunts teaching me various techniques. Crochet, Knitting, Sewing, and other hand crafts that were popular in the late 50's and 60's.. and Macrame! LOL I thought since you see a lot of paper projects which are my current passion, cards, layouts, etc., I'd share something different today. Back to my roots kind of thing.. So take a look!

First of all is a quilt that my granddaughter and I made a couple of years ago. I used to sew all my Barbie doll clothes, and I still love a great sewing project. I took one of her flip flops, made a pattern (pre Cricut/Cameo days) and then cut out pairs of shoes in fun fabrics. I purchased buttons to go with the fabric, made them into squares, added a border and then put it all together. She thinks it's too pretty to use.. and I keep telling her if she doesn't take it home soon, it'll be my lap blanket at the nursing home! She just laughs and thinks I'm kidding.. and I hope I'm not ready for that soon! I just love how bright and colorful it is.. cheery!
Next is a Ceramic Strawberry Cake plate. In the 70's I had a dear friend who owned a Ceramic shop and she had me come in and help her and taught me how to do various ceramic techniqes and clay lifting. I just fell in love with that and bought 2 kilns of my own, and converted my garage into a little ceramic shop. My co-workers at the time would come over and we'd paint, and chat and eat.. but it was such a great time and I sold a lot of my pieces. My mom was in a Bunco club at the time and everytime I made something, she'd say " I need 12 of those for my club". She kept me busy! I made a Victorian shoe one time, which I was going to photograph, but just couldn't get to it.. anyway, I gave one to my boss at a part time job I had at the time, and she put it on the counter. Before the week was over I had orders for 150! I really never wanted to see that boot again..
When my oldest daughter was born prematurely, I made all the Doctors and Nursers who took care of her a Ceramic doll. I painted the hair and eyes and any logos on their hats, or coats to match. I had them all done and when she came home from the hospital ( 3 months later) I gave them  to each person and thanked them. They were so touched but they did a miraclous job of taking care of a baby that wasn't expected to live over night and now will be 39 this year!!  This Shortcake was my mom's favorite. She never used it, afraid she'd break it and now it's in my curio cabinet. My daughter says it's hers... At the time I did ceramics, my life was hectic, scary, and it kept me sane sitting down with friends and painting or coloring etc. Today my life is quieter and I've made new friends in the paper world. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed your visit.

Marji Franklin Designer Day!

This is very exciting for me, my first day sharing something I love with our new group!
I am sharing my latest afghan with you.  I am so in love with this blanket, I love the colors, that it actually came out square and the look of the stitch. 
So I'm very excited to have an outlet to show it off to more than just family.

If you want to see a bigger view and read a little more about it, I'd love for you to visit my blog.

Jodie Ruiz Designer Day

Good morning blog friends!  It's me, Jodie, from Jodie's Scrap Lab.  So happy to be here today.

This morning I want to share something that my friend, Monica, actually made for me.  It is a Scrapper's Survival Kit.

How adorable is that?

This is the top of the can.

These are the stickers she put on the back.

Inside she put tons of scrap necessities like:

A Penny - for all the thoughts and ideas you share with me. Also to remind you how valuable and special you are to me!

Cotton balls - to block out distractions.

Snickers - a reminder of the importance of laughter.

Tack - for tack-ling the tougher ideas

Chocolate - to boost your creativity or give you needed energy!

And my favorite:

Chocolate Kiss - to remind you that your friend Monica loves you!!

The list is a lot longer than this.  I just picked out some my favorites.  I will be posting the whole list on my blog in a few days.

I think it is one of my all time favorite gifts ever!  She is so sweet!

Thanks for stopping by today.  It was so nice to chat and share my project!

Heather Lynn Designer Day

Happy Tuesday, crafty friends! Today is my day to post here at Our Kreative Karma and I am so happy to share a card with you today. I make a lot of quick and easy cards..that's my thing, so hopefully you will get some sort of inspiration from it! Here's my card......

This card only took me maybe 10 minutes to make. I started with a red card base and then added a piece of designer paper that I (cut down and) loved by Webster's Pages. I added a couple of strips of washi tape and a stamped sentiment on pop squares. I then found a button made by us at Pinque Peacock that matched perfectly. The last step was the black twine. That's it! How easy, right?

Thank you so much for stopping by our blog today. My DT sisters and I appreciate each and every visitor and follower! I'd love it if you'd stop by and visit my personal blog, too! Here's the link I hope you have a wonderful day!
