21 Day Challenge {Day 14} and MORE!

Here we are again with a new challenge quote about WILLPOWER. This one is tough for all of us I would imagine. It's such a difficult thing to keep up on a continuing basis. . .even harder than starting a new challenge is for me. I read a comment made on someone else's blog that a challenge wouldn't be a challenge if it was easy. That is SO true! I guess we just have to keep plugging along towards whatever it is we are working on and do our best to keep focused and on track.
Yesterday was our wedding anniversary. We recently had been going through some old photos from his side of the family and I came across these pictures of his older brother and sister and him. The boys had on these plaid collared shirts with bow ties and I had to chuckle because I have never seen my husband in a bow tie before. So I decided to take the pictures (copies, of course) and create this Claudine Hellmuth inspired beeswax collage as a gift for him.


I just love Rebecca Sower's style and wonderful talent. I have seen her use little crumply posies like these in her projects. Yesterday while I was blog-hopping, I found this little tutorial on how to make them. And so I did. These are a few of my favorites.

And finally, here is a sneek peek at some other projects I've been working on that I cannot share in their entirety just yet.

I just noticed that I am almost to my 300th post on this blog. WOW! It seems like I just discovered blogland not that long ago. Well, to celebrate this milestone I have decided to have a little GIVEAWAY. Be sure to check back here early next week to find out more details!
