With school out for the summer, I've found myself In the Zone. In other words, I've been cleaning, organizing, cleaning, sorting, reorganizing, cleaning, and papercrafting. I should probably mention that I love to clean, organize, and papercraft. Tonight, having all of the cleaning finished, I worked on several craft projects. I made several cards, one 12x12 scrapbook page, and I altered a salsa jar to make a treat jar. The treat jar is a gift for our close friend, Zach. He always heads straight for my candy jar whenever he visits. Since he started dating a new girlfriend, he doesn't come over nearly as much. So, I'm going to send a little jar of candy his way. The photos on the 12x12 page are very special to me. They are from a Mother's Day Luncheon in 1981. I especially love the second picture because when I look at it I am reminded of how strong the women in my family have been. I look at their faces and think about the hardships so many of them have overcome. They've left quite a legacy.

You are definitely in the zone! All of your projects are great! I wish I had the time and energy to get some crafting done!

I love all of your cards! I love that all of them are different and so very pretty. I love the stickles, papers, and your different uses of the scallop punch. Great work!
