Hi there! Are you going to CHA next week?

I am fortunate enough to be going to CHA this time, WOOOOOOOOOOO HOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! I am so excited, I have been a fabric, craft, and paper addict forever it seems. Well, at least since age 9, which believe me was a looooooooooong time ago! :) I made some badge holders to wear for a few buddies. Here is a pic of mine, I am still adding a wee bit of embellies, but keep changing my mind on what I want to add. I did fold and stitch my ribbon in half, I like it a wee bit better this way~

Here is a pic of the 4 badge holders I made ~

Here is a pic of the embellies I sent to everyone with their badge holders (so they can customize them to their liking if they wish to add a bit) ~

Can't wait to meet them in person, we have been online pals for quite some time now. Should be lots of fun. I can't wait to meet lots of my online friends at CHA, it will be so exciting!!! Plus just see all the fabulous crafty goodness that is available, oooooooooh my!

I have a challenge posted at Citrus Tree Studio, hope you will join in the fun. I had the ad or art inspiration challenge for July. I used this art piece by Linda Paul, I loved the rich summery colors and beautiful peppers ~

I created a little mini using the fab fab FAB July Port Townsend kit. My inspiration from the piece, the beautiful ruch summery colors and the cascading theme~

Front unfolded ~

Back unfolded ~

You can check out the kit here. Make sure you check out the challenges while you are on the site!

Remember I told you I would have directions on creating 4 mini albums using white cardstock, mist sprays and some of your favorite patterned paper? Well, it was posted on the Bind-It-All Blog on Tuesday July 13 if you would like to take a peek. Of course I used the oh-so-fabulous So Lovely Collection by LilyBee, LOVE that stuff!!! There are boatloads of pics posted in my tutorial. I would love it if you stop by and scroll down to view it. Please leave me a comment so I know you stopped in. :)

Well, I have been a sewing nut lately, and boy has it been fun. I haven't had a chance to sew much in the last year or so, and since that is something I have been doing since I was nine years old, I miss it when I don't have time. Here are a few things I have created lately ~

I will be working on wedding flower girl dresses soon, as well as lots of tablerunners and other wedding type items. Can't wait!!!

Time to run, I have to can pickles, spicy beans, and make 150 zucchini muffins today. Not to mention plan out my CHA trip for Tuesday, yikes! Hope to see you there, if not, I will catch up with you here when I return. Happy crafting everybody! Have a super week ~ Pam

Wow Pam you ars so multi talented!!!!! I love those headbands!!!! And how cute are the badge holders!!!I so wish I was there!!!

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!
