A name change

I decided to change the blog name because Pawprintz was too closely associated with pet products instead of the fact that I used my dog as an avitar and she makes paw prints if she tried to stamp with ink oh well so much for that.
I want to be more closely related with an industrious woman since I do try to handle lots of roles so the most industrious female role model for me in the bible is the "Proverbs 31" woman. It is a standard to attain so to speak. I will try it out for a while and maybe I will get some feedback either way.

comfort CD holder

I just completed the CD holder for the Calvary Chapel Comfort CDs that I purchased to give for friends who have had a loved one go home to the Lord. The inspiration for the style of the holder came from a project I made at a class given by my upline Missy Fuentes, who is very creative. If you look closely the rays on the cd cover actually look like they are radiating from the scalloped circle like sun rays cool huh? That was totally by accident.
The plastic is a 6X6 sheet protector. I used baja breeze, more mustard and chocolate chip card stock, and riding hood red and chocolate chip ink. The chocolate chip ribbon is from the fall winter mini, the designer paper is also from that mini. The riding hood red ribbon is only going to be available through July because it and Baja Breeze are both in colors which will will retire at the end of this catalog. Oh and the stamps used were Season of Friendship, Warm words and Very Versatile.
I really love the in colors but I have been very lazy about using them up before they are done. So I am doing a project blitz in which I am using up all my designer paper which has old in colors or current in colors so that I can make room to love the new colors which will be here before I know it. BTW: I just opened my Baja Breeze ink today. Yes I am such the slacker er hoarder. If you visit my friend Mel's blog, (Temporary Residence )you know that she and I are trying to use what we have...

Corey's scrapbook pages

Here's some of the pages I have completed for Corey I used the Simply Scrappin baby boy kit from two catalogs ago, yeah that would be wasabi green and soft sky. Oh well I need to use them up because I am running out of paper. Anyway all she will have to do is take photos of her baby boy who is due to arrive any day now. The other ones looked right when I uploaded them but it is now coming up sideways.

Uncomfortably Numb

Hello, I'm back. I spent today crafting with some very creative women and girls at my church. I worked on a scrapbook for a coworker who is expecting a baby boy any day now. I have 7 pages done and I hope to upload them as soon as I figure out how to on this new Dell Laptop. Now I am from the dinasaur age and this is really frustrating. I am finally figuring out how to use the mouse pad. It doesn't help that two of my fingers on my left hand are still numb. Yes I have been suffering since January but the soonest appointment was for the first week in April. I was told that I was lucky to get that. Gabrielle should become a neurologist.
