Hope you all had a Joyous Christmas.  Now that Christmas is behind us, VALENTINE'S DAY follows shortly on it's heels.  I put together A Valentine's Album  - people love the thought of Love and Romance.  It's made of Red Paper Bags I found in a store here me.  It already has a new home, and getting ready to ship it to it's new owner.  Not sure if I will create another Album, I may do a few cards and another style album, I like to skip around and keep crafting interesting for me.

I made this Christmas Card and Envelope, it has a Navitity Scene and it is inside a gold metal round frame so a bit heavy.  Most of you know that follow me on ,y blog, ANY thing goes and that I do recycle.  I don't use a lot of Digitals or stamped images, the main focal point could be anything.  I try to make them visually Ah-some!!
This may be the last of my Christmas cards, I made a few this year, I sold almost all of them - a beautiful card will give a smile to the most difficult day!!!  Thank you all and have a blessed Holiday Season!  Jane

I love this Thanksgiving card, it is actually much crisper in person, my camera and I have a complicated relationship!!   One of the things I love about it is the poem, called I wish you enough.   I wish you enough hard times so that you can appreciate all of the good and my friends, I DO wish you Enough in life.  ~~~ Blessings, Jane

This is a Sweet Birthday card, this card was recycled- this pretty girl was first introduced about 25 years ago, I came upon a bag full of older vintage cards, surely she is one of the prettiest in the lot.  This Birthday Card has a tie closure.  I'll show you a few photos of her.  Thanks for stopping and leave your calling card (a comment, LOL) Jane.

A Sarah Kay Easel Card

Hope all is well in blog land, I'm starting to get back into crafting after a year of all bad.  This Sarah Kay card brightens my day, I hope she does yours as well.  The weather here beginning to cool off a bit but dear daughter has caught a cold and it is keeping her home now close to a week but we stuck out today anyways.

My new album I created this week.  It was a crazy, busy, productive and best week, even outside of making  this album.  I love the rich jewel tone colors of the this Graphics45 paper pack.  The size is 4.5 by 6 inches and has 5 pull-outs and holds the total of 22 photos, WOW, more if you put more then one per page.pull-out.   Hope you are all well and life is treating you kind, Jane

My new outside creation, a Hammock Gazebo.   Much sweat went into this, truly it may have been put up on one of the hotest days of the summer.  I love it thou and so worth it, every time I see it I smile - now I need to hang that hammock and a few more trinkets one it and Oh my!!! 

Another Birthday card for a sister, how different this one looks from the one below?   Each is special in their own right as each sister is special - Hope you are not all melting out there, Whew.  I usually love summer but really, this is kinda crazy.   Jane

I have no idea what is going on with my background on my blog!!  It's crazy.  How do you all like the heat of July, that's crazy too.  I have for you my latest creation, an album.  It just finished selling on ebay under 'thepaperaffair'.   I hope all is well with you.  I have had some ups but more downs this year but still forging ahead.

Thinking of you!!

I know I have been gone for a while, thank you all for staying with me.  I have been going through many personal issues and changes and perhaps I will share them with you soon, they are still so raw for me that I just can't seem to get them all down but today I have a Thinking of you card, I had a hard time remembering HOW to create a card, so an absence in creating really does make a difference.  I think my Best Friend will be getting this, she has stood side by side with me the last several montths and for that I have be truly Grateful, thank you for a friendship that has endurred the test of time.  Wishing you all many blessings with your own life journeys, Jane
