It's been awhile, but I'm back

Well, I've been MIA for a while, but I'm back full strength now and it's smooth sailing ahead. Well until the next wave in the lake. Our DD and family moved back to our neck of the woods and are now only 5 mins. away, so I see a lot of our little "bug". That's where some of my time went, but it's time well spent and the bonus is I sleep very well after his visits LOL.  

I would like to show you the projects from the last couple of my WOW Wednesday classes, so I will post April's now and over the next few days catch up with the rest. So keep popping back in, you might see something you like! 

I have been wanting to make these adorable little birdhouses since I first saw them in our Stampin' Success magazine (exclusive to demo's sorry!) last year. 
This pic does not do it justice, it really is does not list to the left, it's just resting on a tumbled tile I made last year for DH for Father's Day. There is little "blingies" in the flowers, and the Daffodil Delight is so bright and cheery and really sets off the Certainly Celery DSP. 

To download the template for this adorable birdhouse click here.

Here are 2 cards we also made. This is the Stained Glass technique and is just so pretty and feminine.

And the Spotlight technique, I also showed the ladies how to do the brayered embossing folder technique for the background on this one.

I have a little bookcase set up in My Creative Space, where I hold my classes, and use the top shelf to display some special items I have created. I try to change this out frequently but lately it has been neglected. Here is a pic as it was a few months ago. I hope to have some new items to display for next class.

Kirsteen Gill did a lovely project called Spring Plaque which I just had to CASE. 
Thanks Kirsteen for setting me on another path of creativeness. 
The little yellow matchbox is still full of those little flowers I punched for the framed art, and it seems someone has absconded with the little JellyBellies from the pink box LOL.

 As always, please leave a comment or contact me if you have any questions.

Happy Stampin'
