Crafty Tweaker Time!

Hey Chicas and Chicos!

How ya been on your side of the screen? I have been frantically busy on this end. Almost finished moving into my new office. I am not sure if I mentioned, but I am now at a beautiful office located a whopping mile from my hood. I am now a Remax Gold Real Estate Agent. (Day Gig) I have been doing this Gig for 15 years now. (really dating myself here) Anyhoo, for some awesome cosmic reason, business has been super brisk for me and Sharon (business partner and homegirl for life)
I have been really trying to organize myself these past few weeks, and am now back to daily crafting! (whoohoo) I even joined a couple of swaps on swap-bot, to get my creative juices flowing again. It felt damn good too.
Almost two weeks ago, I attended the C.H.A. tradeshow in Southern California with Crafty Chica. It was an amazing expericence, and I walked away with lots of inspiration and great memories. (Thanks again, Kathy! You are the Bomba)
Here is a link to my flickr account. Pictures were not permitted, but I did take a few with my phone.
My little pics do NOT do the event, it's justice. It was so overwhelming to see all the vendors and make and takes under one roof. I believe there were over 3000 vendors. Everything from large companies, to small independent companies selling the latest crafty product.
I came home with about 15 lbs. of swag! (best part of the event!!)
This past weekend I snuck up to my paren't cabin and did an ATC marathon. I am making 60 to take with me on the Crafty Chica Cruise in March. Last year, at the cruise, we were invited to swap with the other Crafty Chicas. I am trying to get a handle on my ATC's early this year, because last year, I think I only made about 15. This year, I wanna be ready. I prepped 60 cards with various backrounds and I completed 30. I just have another 30 to complete, and I know I will have them done by next week. (I can be a tweaker sometimes)
Here is a sneak peak.
The pic is kinda blurry, because I took it with my phone.

I sealed these in encaustic wax for an old world look to them.

Stay tuned, for the other 30!

Have a wonderful week!

How fun that you are going on the cruise. The cards look great. Glad you had a great time and I hope the RE business picks up for you and everyone else. Take care.

Wow! You have been a busy bee! Love the ATC marathon! It's been awhile since I made one myself. I forgot how much fun they are to make! Have fun with the next 30.

Creative Blessings,
Lisa :)
