I couldn't find a comment box for the doll cut-outs. That is just so adorable and creative--especially the "closet" you made to keep them in.

This card is beautiful, too. I need to make some "just because" cards. Do you make your cards as you go, or do you stockpile so you have some to choose from? I find it hard to get all my supplies out when I just need one card.

Pam, Thanks for bringing that to my attention -- I had accidentally clicked not to allow comments when I posted it.
A lot of times I make my cards as I go because I like to make them to suit the person I'm giving them too.
BUT when I come across new techniques that I want to try I make a few up before hand.
Lately, I've been making two of each one I make and I'm still not keeping up very well! So many events of late that call for encouragement, sympathy, thanks, or just a thinking of you!
As to getting my supplies out -- they stay out. When I started homeschooling, I felt the need for a separate space where I could put charts up - put a school desk - etc. I converted our little tiny bedroom into a school/craft room. This enables me to sometimes work on projects while my daughter works on seat's one of the best changes I've done. School goes smoother, and my crafting supplies are out of site but close at hand.
