On February 9, 2010 a group of friends started a challenge blog. Perhaps you were there on our very first week. Perhaps you've played along a few times during the past 17 months. Perhaps you've never heard of us and have missed the fun.
We are the Crafty Ho's and our challenges have continued weekly since that first post in February of 2010.
But as often happens with things such as these, life has a way of getting too busy... and good things fall along the path of busy-ness. That is the case with the Crafty Ho's Challenge. We will miss presenting challenges for you each week, but we will always treasure the memories we've created along the way.
To celebrate our time together, we have invited all past designers as well as some close friends to have a Crafty Ho's Anything Goes BLOG HOP this week... along with some really awesome PRIZES!!! Be sure to check the Crafty Ho blog for ALL the details... and leave comments along the blog hop so you can have a chance to win a prize!!!
In fact, you should have arrived here from the Crafty Ho blog because I am the first of several stops along the hop.
I wanted to make this post EXTRA special so I've hang on and check this out.
What do you see???
A simple little pack of designer paper. Yep! That's what it is. However, you may not realize it, but this is a treasure! I moved last month and have only had a couple of weeks to go on treasure hunts in my new town. And this is what I found on one of the hunts, for a mere 25 cents.
Speaking of moving... check out my card:
My move has put me behind... far, far behind! In fact, I've made a mere 4-5 cards in the past month. Quite a change from someone who usually makes at least one card a day. I hadn't even had a chance to create my Calendar Girls card for June yet. And Carol had given us an awesome challenge. She told us to make a card (or 3D item) based around something we liked doing or planned to do this summer and to write a ditty on why we were looking forward to doing that. Sooooooo I chose a moving image, because I moved this summer. Tee Hee! I really do like moving! And it had been 11 years since we'd moved so I looked forward to it and was happy to be able to move. I like moving because it gives me a chance to get everything in order in my house. I also like setting up/decorating our home and meeting new people. THANK YOU, CAROL, for a great theme! And thank you Calendar Girls for forgiving me my tardiness! (EEK! I'm still tardy because I now need to get my July card made. Soon, I promise!!!)
