Pinwheel love


Hello, everyone! I hope you all had a great weekend and also managed to get some creative work done in celebration of National Scrapbooking Day. I managed to make one card and one double-page layout, but that is way less than what I had hoped for or even planned to make. Oh well. But I did spent a lot of one-on-one time with my son, which I guess is what Mother's Day is all about, right?!

Thanks for stopping to see my card. I am really into pinwheels right now. If you missed my weekend posts, you can see THIS PINWHEEL CARD HERE that was for the Polkadot Door blog hop.


I have challenged myself to learn how to make all of the handmade embellishments that I see out there in blogland. I have been pinning them in Pinterest and plan on trying to make each one I see. Especially the ones that require patterns and sewing. And I would love to learn to crochet, too, so I can make crochet flower embellishments.

It's good to have a challenge, don't you think? Well, I have managed the pinwheel ... let's see what I can find next to make! If you know of any tutorials on handmade flowers, link them up in the comments section. I'd love to take a peek. :)

Thanks for stopping by, and have a fabulous start to your week.

Cute card! I've been enjoying your crafty pins on Pinterest. I'm with you on the crocheting too. There are so many things to make! I'm sad that I never learned from my grandma, she was AMAZING at it.
