Its Thursday and time for a Project 2011 update. Project 2011 is a meme hosted by Cate at Moments of Whimsy. She started it for us to chronicle our goals for 2011. Each week we update our progress in a blog post. My goal was to be more crafty during the year.
My dad used to be a meat cutter and The Graphics Fairy had a cool image I could use on a card for him. A cow showing the different cuts of meat. I think he will find it amusing. I told Jenny that I wanted to add a bit of red food coloring for blood on the front. She thought that was tacky. Hence, the card remained blood free.
I also wanted to make some Artist Trading Cards, which I did. Mr. Bernie was a helper bee and cut the cards out for me. All I had to do was doll them up. I posted these for The Graphics Fairy Brag Monday. I had wanted to get them in the mail for swapping but they haven’t made it to the mail box yet.
My friend Michele from Living on Less loved the idea of these and made some this weekend. . She told me they are addicting little buggers to make. She did a neat twist on them and added personal pictures. This picture was taken when Jenny and Michele came to visit me in Montana. Just because I can I’m posting a picture of the one she made.
