Couture Celebration

So I wanted to participate in the Club Anya Summer Club Couture contest. I altered Ian and Anya to make a chic Anya...I'm not sure I got it quite right :-P I also decided to make it a birthday card which I will give to my sister in place of the original card I made her. Also, as it so happens Crystal over at Crystal's Crafty Creations is celebrating 10k hits on her blog (see my sidebar for details) and as a blog entry twist she wanted us to make a 'celebration' card of some kind. Well, I think this will fit the bill, don't you?

long time no blogging :-P

So I've been MIA for over a month...yikes! I didn't realize I had been gone that long. I've now made it a personal goal to post at least once a week about my crafting and optometric exploits.

Some exciting news....I just opened up my store on to sell my creations that I don't end up giving to friends and/or family. Now maybe I can offset some of this crafting debt...LOL. Just check out my sidebar for some examples of what's for sale.
