Updates and Ramblings

Hey everyone, I've been ignoring my blog a little bit.  It's been super busy here.  I've been spending a lot of time in the last week designing.  I tend to design in fits and starts, so I'll do nothing for months and then whip up a bunch stuff.  We work pretty far in advance.  In fact, I'm almost done designing for the year....just have to come up with some holiday ideas, crazy, right?

I haven't managed to create in a week or so, so I've been feeling a bit twitchy.  One of my go-to methods of diving back into creating is pulling out the stash, which is exactly what happened here.  An old Studio Calico journaling card and a really old squirrel sticker, plus a sentiment from My Favorite Nut are the star here.  I used some woodgrain paper as a mat and for some extra texture.

The good news is I have lots of creating in my future.  The Neat & Tangled May release just showed up at my house!  We ended up skipping the April release because of some manufacturing delays, but we'll be back at it in a couple of weeks.  I think you're really going to like the release too.

OK, that's all for today, thanks for stopping by!


  1. Ohh, that is so sneaky!! Can't wait to see all the designs you made!! :) And that card is super adorable!

  2. This is so cute, Miriam!
    And I can't wait to see your new designs! :)

  3. That is so ME, only you still manage to post way more often than I. I definitely go in cycles of doing a lot of crafts, and then nothing at all. Love that you still get a post together in your off cycle. Adorable little guy here!

  4. I'm nuts about this sweet squirrel design, Mim! It's brimming with dimension and texture! Can't wait to see what you have up your sleeve for us coming up! Hugs, Darnell

  5. Yeah for more your sweet card and how fun to pull out goodies from your stash!
