Hello, my crafty friends, and welcome back to our blog. I’ve just returned home from our show at the beautiful Gaylord Palms in Orlando, Florida and I am happy to report that a fun time was had by all. The weather was perfect, the people were amazing, and the Creativity Center was on fire! What more can one ask? Let’s get started with today’s Creative Therapy, shall we?
It truly makes me smile when I walk into my craft room and walk out with a handmade gift. I discovered this artsy coaster set on the That’s Crafty blog and knew I needed to share the inspiration. Just thinking out loud, but wouldn’t these make a great housewarming gift? Shellie has step-by-step instructions on her blog so if you see a set or two of these Steampunk inspired coasters in your future, click here and I’ll take you over to the original post.
How stinkin’ cute is this sweet baby card?! It automatically brings a smile to my face and isn’t that why we put so much love into our cards? If you’d like to watch the creation of this adorable card, click here and I will escort you over to Nichol’s blog for a visit. I’m pretty sure you might find a stamp or two that you need in your life so you’ll be happy to hear that Nichols has links to all the products that were used on the project. Kudos to you for sharing those smiles one handmade card at a time.
I instantly fell in love with this gorgeous watercolored work of art designed by the very talented Anna-Karin. I can definitely see a set of these little beauties hanging in my craft room – how about you? I know you most likely have a nice stash of Distress Inks so why not put them to good use? If not, you can always use whatever watercolors you have at home. I also love how Anna used a Molotow Masking Pen to create some realistic highlights on the flowers. I haven’t used one yet but I think I need it, lol. Kudos to Anna-Karin for being such a constant inspiration to her fellow paper crafters.
After the busy day that you’ve just had, I bet you’re scratching your head wondering what’s for dinner tonight. Not to worry, with a little guidance from our friends over at Damn Delicious you can have this tasty dish on the table in no time. These Japanese style pork cutlets come together in just 20 minutes, or less! Click here and I will take you over to the blog so you can print out the recipe. Chungah is the queen of transforming simple everyday ingredients into sophisticated and elegant meals for the everyday home cook like yourself so be sure to stop by her blog anytime you need a little inspiration in the kitchen.
Thanks for sharing part of your Sunday with me, I hope you have an amazing week in front of you. I look forward to seeing you at one of our shows. I’ll meet you at the Creativity Center and we’ll make something beautiful together!
Hugs to all, Lorraine
