A Pin-Up, A Party and The Fine Print

First some exciting news, I'm going to be participating in my first blog party this Saturday!


Click the button for more information


So check back this Saturday for a special Mad Tea Party post! (Creativity don't fail me now! lol) And click here to visit A Fanciful Twist. It's such a beautiful inspirational blog!

I wanted to share a picture of the ATC I received in the mail from Frieda as part of her Generosity Project.



My picture isn't half as good as hers so click here to see the blog post where she displays it. It's simply gorgeous, thanks again Frieda!

And now for the fine print (don't worry, my fine print is painless!). I've thrown a couple of projects at y'all in the past few weeks and wanted to go into a little more explanation in case there was any confusion!

1. Craftoholics-I love finding out more about the crafty people behind the blogs and so the Craftoholics were created as a way for not just me, but all of us, to do that and also maybe introduce y'all to someone you've never met before. I want to make sure you know that I consider a Craftoholic to be ANYONE that creates ANYTHING. You do not have to be a scrapper, you can be a painter, a baker, a decorator. Anything that is creative where you make something (and you are obsessed with making things), I consider that to be a Craftoholic. Think "butcher, baker, candlestick maker", right? You can also click here for more info!

2. Friday Night Fab Five-I've decided to open this up to everyone who would like to participate in my Fab Five at anytime. What this means is that I will continue to do a weekly Friday Night Fab Five but if you have something that you would like to add to the list, please e-mail it to me! Now this can be anything: place, movie, book, food, clothes, shampoo, anything that you are into, can't live without or think is fabulous send it to me! If you have a link or picture, send that too! I'm also thinking of adding a Mr. Linky so that if anyone wants to do their own Fab Five, you can link it up here so everyone can check it out.

Always remember that you can e-mail me at any time with any questions at katamommy at gmail dot com. Or if you just want to chat, e-mail me then too! lol Don't be shy!

Now onto my newest creation...I found an unfinished 5x7 wood mirror frame at Michael's the other day and quickly decided I wanted to do something with pin-ups on it. I have a book on pin-ups which looked super cool in the store but when I got it home it wasn't so great. So I had no guilt in cutting it up for parts and my original idea for this mirror was to collage it with a bunch of pin-ups but in the end decided to keep it simple and just use one:



I painted the frame red and cut out the pin-up and backed her with cardstock. The alpha is Thickers, the little chipboard corners were some Callista sent me in some goody mail (Thanks Callista!) and the cherry ribbon is some I found on clearance at Michael's. Peek-a-boo! :P

Well, I suppose this post is long enough for today...I hope y'all have a great day, we're halfway through the week!
