Walking down memory Lane...

So I took a nostalgic trip through some of my old posts on here...I miss scrapping and card making a great deal. But I still have no space to work in, so I'm kinda unable to at this time. We moved into a new house last august and invited my friend to move in as well. So we have no extra space. I have been contemplating turning our outdoor shed into a crafty oasis...BUT no power out their either.

I have always been pretty innovative at getting my space, but this is a challenge I haven't been able to figure out. It makes me sad to know that all my beautiful scrappy stuff is out in the garage collecting dust.

Saturday Creative Challenge

True to form as I reopen my shops, reacquaint myself with my blog, and reenter creativity...We are going to start back up with the challenges. I am sure this will be slow going to get back up again, but I think it could be a lot of fun. Now its been a long time since my last challenge. I think I will just use the same one I did then!


OK were all thinking about going green, carbon footprints, and consumption these days. Why not use your creativity to make something wonderful!!! Take something you had planned on throwing out, doesn't matter what, and make it into something else. It could be anything. Even if its a fun science experiment with your kids (pop bottle whirlpools!!)

You have a week to create your upcycled innovation! Post links to pictures here, and I will randomly select one comment as the winner of a special recycled gift...Hmmmmm I wonder what on earth that would be!?

Have fun!

Returning to the land of the craft...

I have been lost in recovery, and publishing land for a long while. I am resurfacing from hard reality to come back to my whimsical world of creating.

Now some of you know that I am a writer also. I just entered the frightening world of Querying Literary Agents. This is known as the 7th ring of hell. I have written at least 20 query letters and have had them reviewed and I just cant seem to get it right. I don't know what I am missing, but its true what they say, writing the query is harder than writing a book.

I'm excited for this step in my life as I want my book to be published. I think the story is unique and is has great potential...but getting that uniqueness and potential out in 250 words is like squeezing back into your high-school jeans...Probable...yet painful. I have two other books at the halfway stage, and I am currently focusing on finishing those while I take a break from hell. Ive started a blog for all my writer endeavors over at live journal. If anyone wants to take a gander, http://entyqua.livejournal.com/
