My First Car and Some Projects

So.. for the big blog challenge.. my first car:



This is not *my* car - mine was not rusty! But it was a blue 1989 Chrysler Fifth Avenue. The thing was a tank, but it had amazing velvet seats.

And here are some pics of some things I've been working on lately:







The first one is only half done.. it's going to be a mini album in a box and I'm making a bunch of double sided cards each featuring different photos/color scheme to go inside. The buttons are glazed into the bottom of the box. The second one I have to complete the back pages. I don't normally post incomplete stuff, but I have been dying to post pictures and haven't had much actually finished.. I have 3 more LO's to photograph yet.

Oh, and as for my accomplishment list today..

- 1 load of laundry
- emptied and loaded dishwasher
- wiped countertops
- vaccuuming the main level
- wiped and tidied coffee table and TV stand
- hopefully more later! I have a very untidy craft room

Great car! LOL You post a pic that looks worse than yours and I post one that looks better than my first car! Funny!

LOVE your work! That box is awesome, as is the layout with the snowflakes. Gorgeous colors. All of your work is amazing!

I've had huge cars like that too. Somewhat of a pain to drive but nice in that it takes a lot to bang 'em up. LOL

I love your latest creations!

With that you don't have to worry if you get hit. It'll stay together, unlike cars today. A little finder bender can cost a small fortune to fix.
