New Year, New Team Blog Hop

I am so excited that for the new year but one of the things I am most excited for is the new term of the Crop Chocolate Design Team.  To announce the new team we are doing a blog hop.  For our DT application we had to make two projects, one that was something out of the box and another that was more our style.  I always struggle with altered things so I tried this candle holder for my out of the box technique



And this Quad Easel Card was my "Me" project





Here is my headshot



And now for 5 fun things about me:

1.  I have the greatest family in the world and they really pick me up when I need it
2.  I love to use bling on my projects
3.  I love to get jewelry as gifts
4.  I only wear jewelry on special occasions
5.  I have always been a crafter and now my 6 yr old daughter considers herself a scrapbooker

  20. My kids used to craft with me too. They're boys, so now only one still considers himself a crafter and will sometimes go with me to craft classes :) It's a joy. I really love both your projects and think I need to try that quad card!! Looking forward to serving with you on the DT!!
