My first entry…

Ha ha, how exciting is this!!  I feel like I’m the master of my domain…

So here goes…

Lately I have been trying my hand at card making.  I think I’m more frugal than crafty…and the way this started was because I saw a beautiful rose bloom that had been blown off the bush by the wind and I did not have the heart to throw it away, so I decided to dry the petals in a kit I had bought for my daughter and who never used it.

Months later, a Gizmodo Challenge had us take a photo of something  on our Iphone.  The Bay Area was going through a series of storms and there was NO WAY I was going to go outdoors for a photo shoot in temps less than 60!!  So I had to think of something creative to take a photo of, and that’s when I remembered my drying petals.  The result was quite neat…
