February 2014 Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

Whether you just started here or landed here from {Krista's} blog, I hope you're enjoying the February 2014 Stamp of the Month blog hop featuring Wild About Love.

Sorry for no new artwork, but between a major inspection at work this week and losing 25% of our crew to pre-deployment training I've been working extended hours all week.  Semper Gumby.  Hop on over to {Pamela's} blog to see her project.

Studio J Layouts

I am horribly behind on my scrapbooking, but I actually managed to get this year's Christmas photos scrapped before New Year's Eve using Studio J.  There are SO many advantages to using Studio J, and the price is hard to beat.  You can choose from current papers or retired papers, and there are tons of layout options to accommodate your photos.  Plus, the embellishments and Stickease are available for every pack and color, making it possible to embellish your pages without spending a bundle.

Here are my Christmas 2013 Layouts.

Oh yeah, did I mention the free jpg files you get when you order Studio J layouts?

Visit my {website} and look under "Products" to find out how to get started with Studio J.

2013 Crafting Totals

Well, another year has flown by.  I didn't realize how quickly it passed until I went into my garage in December to get my Christmas tree, and realized that I never did get it put away on the top shelf of the garage when I took it down last year.

I wasn't very productive in terms of crafting, but I did accomplish a lot at work, completed my junior year of college (and made the Dean's List in the spring and fall), and did a little bit of volunteer work.

I remember that there were a few occasions when I had trouble updating the count gadget, but these numbers are fairly close.

Pages complete: 1

Cards complete: 7

Altered Items: 5

Digital Pages complete: 20

Sewing Items: 0

Crochet Items: 4 (one VERY INVOLVED in progress, about 75% complete)

Miscellaneous Items: 2 (a shadow box for a co-worker's retirement that I really must blog, a super cool geeky Christmas tree decoration that I also must really blog)

Once again, my expenditures far exceeded my production for the year, but I plan to do a better job of scheduling craft time into my schedule in 2014.  What are your crafting goals for 2014?
