Bloggerette fun and a fun challenge

When Karen at Some Days Are Diamonds offered to create a Bloggerette Sorority, I thought it would be a neat idea.  What a great way to meet more bloggerettes out there!

As part of our RUSH we were asked to create a project using a vintage image provided to us by Karen.

Hmmm, there was an old chenille blanket that I have been waiting to use for something special.  I knew I had to incorporate such textile yumminess into my project!

 I decided to make a banner which I could hang in my craft room.
There it would remind me of the wonderful people (and sisters!) I have met through blogging who inspire me everyday.

Vintage buttons - a must!
I love the ones used on baby clothing from days past - so sweet and small.

Well, I couldn't have a project without some diamonds right?
Vintage bling is just the thing!

Love you Mon Amis!

Sometimes you need a little challenge to get you focused on the things that are important to you.
Rhonna Farrer has an awesome challenge out called the 21 Day Challenge.
I decided to go with it!

a little damask suede black book to inspire me . .  ;)

{some alterations and embellishments might be needed to the front, tee hee hee}

Here is a peek at my doodles for the title page.
I think everyday I will add a token word or doodle and see what happens.

You might be wondering what I chose as my challenge.

I decided I need to be more diligent in my creative pursuits while keeping my family as my number one priority. {a little more synergy between the creative Heidi and Mom Heidi}
 What does this mean?  Maybe not raising my hand {cough, cough} at every other volunteering opportunity so I have more time to do things in line with this goal like painting AND making a home cooked meal. 
Play in my craft room more {at least walk in there daily even if I fluff things up a bit}.

If you decide to take the 21 day challenge too, drop me a line.  I would love to hear what you picked and how it is going for you!

Thanks for stopping by Sugahs!

Hi honey! As always, your work is beautiful. I too am doing the 21 day challenge. My challenge is to read something enjoyable each day. That means TURN OFF THE TV for an hour or so... So, I'll let you know how that goes. Love to you Sugah!

I adore your gorgeous banner! What a wonderful image and lovely embellishments!

Karen said...

Oh Heidi it is GORGEOUS! Isn't it fun to create something JUST FOR US? I made a banner also and love it!
I have to laugh at your (cough cough)s! I used to do the same thing - and one day it just hit me - "let someone else - you really don't have time Karen" and so it began - I slowly got my life back.
I soooo want to join the Vintage Stocking Swap - but again "Karen do you have time?"
Well - must get to work - just wanted to let you know I LOVE your Rush project, I'm so glad you shared it.
Have a great day Heidi!
Hugs! Karen
