It's time for a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches! Today we have a sketch by Jen Timko and here’s what I did with it!
The sketch has a big circle - but when I realized that I had to mail Valentine's in a couple of weeks, the circle quickly became a heart!
This one is for my oldest son. Both my sons are of an age where I tend to get an eye-roll after they walk all the way to their campus mail center only to get a card from their mom. But I also know they would wonder what's wrong if they didn't get that card - so I know it does mean something. I took the new-to-me Simon Says Rainbow Hearts die and did the rainbow in masculine colors, patterns and textures. Then I found a chunky sentiment. It was a bit plain so I had to add a tiny little bow and some black nailheads - even though "bling" is a bad word with them!
I have a January goal of cleaning out my Feedly blog lists (we won't talk about how many blogs I read). I'm very happy with Feedly, but I got a sudden whim to try something different. I believe the vast majority of people are using Bloglovin' so I gave it a try. It's giving me a chance to re-organize everything in a brand new space. What can I say - if I could make a career out of "organizing" (or finding typos in restaurant menus and road signs) - I'd be rich! But I do need someone to click on that top link so Bloglovin' knows I'm me - thank you!!!
