Hello World!

Knock, Knock, Knock...anyone out there?  It's me, Trina.  Here I am, posting my first blog entry ever...kinda scarey, allowing all a little view into my life - but here it goes.  I didn't think I would ever do this, but I wanted a way to share my creations with my friends and family, and if I'm lucky, make a few friends along the way.

It all started with wanting to find a project I can do with my son...one that would teach him how to show kindness to others, as well as give him a better understanding of how fortunate he is.  What I found was the "Make a Child Smile Foundation" (www.makeachildsmile.org).  So...what initially started out as a little project of making homemade cards for kids, became a passion, a shopping addiction, as well as therapy for this busy working mother/wife/daughter- there was a whole new world out there, just waiting for me.  So...if you all don't mind, I would like to use this platform to share what I create along the way.

So, without further ado...here are some pictures of cards I've made.  As I get used to this format, I'll start to add the "recipe" for each card...enjoy!

This card I made for one of my nieces, for her 6th birthday.  It was soooo quick and easy to make!  Just a quick paper run through the Cuttlebug, a few punches, and voila!

And this one was made using stamps and buttons from Papertrey Ink...I love that company!!!  I think that the "Life" stamps are my all-time favorite...they are so versatile, as is the rest of their collection.

That's it for now...until next time...

Stay well,
Trina
