A few sites to check out, I received a beautiful blog award, more projects, and a contest at Sketches ~ Creatively Yours.

Boy, every day goes by more quickly than the last, I swear! Does it seem that way to you too? I can't believe we are into December by almost a full week. WOOOO. Well, enough of that, time to talk about some fabbo stuff. First, if you haven't checked out this amazing and wonderful site, go give it a peek -
Scrapbook News and Reviews. Everyone is SUPER nice, and very inspiring. Tons of awesome projects and tutorials posted and a great forum. The magazine is running a special right now too - Cancer Awareness Special
Two-for-one special! Buy one annual subscription at the special rate of $39.99 and get a second subscription for free. Offer expires December 13, 2009. Doesn't this sound great? I am going to subscribe, if the magazine is as awesome as the website, I am sure it is fantastic.

OK, here is another site that I have been visiting off and on for a few months - Bad Girls Authentic Vintage Art. There is also a fabulous blog - Bad Girls Project 52. I finally had enough time to jump in and participate! Here is what I created for the Paperdoll challenge (go check out the blog for deets on what the challenge was)-

Close up of front (I bought a book at work during the United Way Used Book Sale, brought it home, carved it up, gesso'd the heck out of it, and Glimmer Misted it before I added lots of sparklie stuff)-

I received a gorgeous blog award from Robin over at Challenge Masters

Thanks a million Robin, that was really nice of you!

Here are a few of my Zutter projects for the month of December -

Christmas Organizer -

Inside the organizer (I covered and bound three large envies ~ To Do, Coupons & Misc., and Receipts, to keep everything in one place) -

A Christmas album mini made with some of the oh-so-faboo Fancy Pants stamps -

I have a few tags I made for Sketches ~ Creatively Yours, and as soon as Ali gets them posted I will share them here. I used a digital stamp created by Gina Rahman of Your Special Delivery. It was fun to use, and easy peasy to boot. Make sure you stop by the Sketches Creatively Yours blog to see the digital stamps (there is a freebie offered!) and view the details of the contest that is currently running.

Well, I need to get my rear in gear and get some additional projects done. I hope you all have a fantastic week!

WOw girl! You have been a busy girl! SUch fabulous stuff!!!

How did I come up with Pam's Eclectic Stuff?

Pam- that is me. :)

eclectic --adj.- selecting what seems best of various styles or ideas
*Since I like a huge variety of arts and mediums, this seemed perfect, we will talk about the best of various styles or ideas.

stuff- The noun stuff has 7 senses -
1. material, stuff -- (the tangible substance that goes into the makeup of a physical object; "wheat is the stuff they use to make bread")2. whatchamacallit, stuff, whatsis, sundry, sundries -- (miscellaneous unspecified artifacts; "the trunk was full of stuff")3. stuff, clobber -- (informal terms for personal possessions; "did you take all your clobber?")4. stuff, stuff and nonsense, hooey, poppycock -- (senseless talk; "don't give me that stuff")5. stuff -- (unspecified qualities required to do or be something; "the stuff of heros"; "you don't have the stuff to be a United States Marine")6. stuff -- (information in some unspecified form; "it was stuff I had heard before"; "there's good stuff in that book")7. stuff -- (a critically important or characteristic component; "suspense is the very stuff of narrative")

*What more needs to be said? I really thought about using Pam's Eclectic Sundries, but I thought that might be tough to remember. :) Stuff is easy and conveys a variety of meanings. I like the definition- miscellaneous unspecified artifacts. I also liked whatchamacallit, but that is a lot of typing. :)

So there you have it!
