I have been amazed by some of the bloggers out there and all their accomplishments with their crafts. It's also nice to put a face with the names I see in publications like Paper Crafts and Cards. After I won the Moxie Fab Olympics of Stamping, I learned about 'calls' for publications. So that's how these talented ladies are getting their work in these magazines! I submitted some items for publication for Cards and Paper Crafts for their last call, but obviously didn't get anything in (I'm sure I would have been contacted by now), but I'm not giving up!
Here is a wreath I made for Paper Crafts current call. It's made of coffee filters and I decorated it to match the card I made (and won with) for the Moxie Fab Olympics of Stamping. These are the colors I use when I decorate my house for the holidays; Soft Sky blue, Certainly Celery green, pearlized metallic Gold, whites and ivories. I just LOVE this color combo, it's fresh and clean with lots of wintery-ness (is that a word?). I embellished the wreath with snowflakes, glitter pearls and buttons. This probably won't make it either, but it was fun to make! Since I got the wreath form and coffee filters at the Dollar Tree, this cost me only $3 to make! My kind of decoration!
