Sooooo...5-6 months later....yep...it took me that long. Procrastination is my sir name. But that's what you get when you combine a procrastinator and perfectionist. Not saying I'm a perfectionist per-say...more like I like things to look perfect, and knowing I can't get it like that in 5 minutes drives me crazy! Weeks would go by without even pulling it out to work on. So the end result is that crafts take me an anguishing amount of time to complete. In fact, even after My hubby declared that I was finished with this mirror, I kept pulling it out and picking out what I don't like and catching myself going for the paints again. (which I did twice after the declaration!) So without further ado...and proof that I completed a project...here is the finished project! Please be kind...I love art and wished I was just like my friend Beth Senn, who could have whipped this sucker out in 5 minutes...and make it look like the real thing...no exaggeration!!! She rocks!
Hahaahaa...I think I'm procrastinating putting up the pics! Here's the card that she wanted a painting of...
This is what she's getting...
You can see in this last pic that I had gone back and darkened up the grass...which is driving me crazy because it's lopsided...oh maybe it's on a hill! LOL I like that the relfection of my floor makes it look like the basket is on the floor...cool.
It was neat taking pictures of the mirror...first one I took, there was a reflection of me in it...delete. Then the next one I took you could see my messy cubbies in my bedroom...delete. Then another I took while it was on my stove. That one was hilarious because it looked like the basket of flowers were drifting in the air in my kitchen...
Let me know if you'd put this up on your wall. I think it's going in her bedroom...maybe nobody goes in there but her!

When I first thought I would like to 'get into' this hobby, I really hadn't expected the adventure that laid ahead. I quickly found out. The once small basket of goodies, now has no turned into a corner of my bedroom of cramped delight, and images in my mind of someday in the *near--HA* future, that one or two...shall I say all three of my dear children (young adults) moving out and actually having a whole room so that my deliciously fun toys can finally find a proper spot in this home...someday.
Well here I go...Now remember that this is the very first LO I did...NO Cricut, a few stickers, a glue stick and hand cut outs from a nails magazine for embellishments. I don't have but a picture of my first LO...it was for one of my dear clients, Liane, that I had known for 2 years. She was from Germany, and she and her small family were returning home after living here for 6 years. Liane introduced me to card making and scrap booking. She invited me to my very first SU! party...and that's all it took. I knew I was hooked. But it wasn't until she was about to leave, she asked all her friends to create a page for her to take home for memory sake...what a cool idea! Still, after she left, it took me another year before I really decided to start collecting my stash. Funny, I thought all I needed was the Cuttlebug! LOL--NOT! That's another topic...So be kind...I promise it gets a little better.
