Outside My Comfort Zone

For this week I decided to create a much different pinch bag. I recently joined a blog group who adheres to Edgar Allen Poe's work. The blog is titled Quoth The Raven Nevermore. Because I joined, I felt I had to try and do something that recognized the author Poe.

Here's what I came up with.

I apologize for my photographing technique. It's late but I wanted to show how the bag looks like after being constructed.

Below is the actual bag itself. It has been saved as a JPG.

The graphics used are from Ikesart. Ike is a friend whose talent goes way beyond the pale. I have seen her do macabre art, along with cute stuff that is filled with sweetness and light. GRIN.

Go check out her blog site. Ike's World.

Until next time...Happy Crafting.

Lil Stinker

Yes, I's not Friday.

Would you believe yesterday (being Friday), I kept forgetting to slow down long enough to get my second free gift uploaded? Yep...and I have my cards to blame. I was so intent on finishing up some cards I'd started a while back but had to walk away from (there were many), that I let time get away from me.

Of course, when I remembered last night, I had already turned off the computer...not to mention I was totally pooped, and my eyes were shooting sparks. Then this morning, I attended an early writers' get-together...our goal... enter tags on our books on Amazon, in hopes of pulling in more readers. Authors always love new readers...hint, hint.

With that said, here is my second pinch bag for you to download. I've titled it Lil Stinker. Don't you just love the red color? I do.

Click on the graphic above and save the download when the files opens.

The graphics for this pinch box came from Scrappin Doodles. If you're looking for some great graphics, check them out.

Until next time...Happy Crafting.

A Valentine Free Gift

A Hundred Hearts

Since Christmas I have been double-darn busy. Mostly with family requirements. All during this time I felt there was a missing element my life. It caught up with me this afternoon.

I haven't offered a free gift on my blog for quite some time.

Well...I've taken care of that. Here is a gift.

It's a pinch bag. I love these things. They're great for holding all kinds of small gifts. Candy, little toys, gift cards, special surprises, etc. What's also awesome about these bags is you can store them in your computer for future valentine holidays. They won't take up space...or get lost under a pile of other paper gifts...and they're quick and easy to make.

Sooo...with that said...every Friday until February 14th, I'll offer a different Valentine's pinch Bag to save into your Valentine's Day Gift Folder.

Here is Valentine Gift 1: A Hundred Hearts
