But it appears to have finally stopped and we're going to take it easy for the rest of the day. Whew! (Updated - whew doggies, I'm tired but not as sore as I expected - YAY)
So, let's see who participated last week! Our challenge was entitled Soup to Nuts and what we hoped you would do is to either SOUP (Start a long term project) or NUTS (Finish a project you had lying around). Wait until you see what cool things we have to share with you! Such inspiring projects and while reading the comments I had to chuckle - you ladies get us, you really do! You've embraced the fun that is the Opus-Gluei outlook!
Divya Rao starts us of with this gorgeous card! Oh my gosh, look at the beautiful sewing technique she's incorporated into this! She wants to use her sewing machine more and I can't wait to see what other projects she does! This is great! The recipient of this card is going to love it!Then next up we have Ruthie who had my stomach growling when she told us how she finished off some homemade carrot soup (YUM YUM YUM) - she's going to be working on a patchwork quilt project, can't wait to see that! Check out her blog, she's a crafty and clever blogger! (and you had some wasabi peanuts - yummier) Take a photo of that soup, Ruthie, inquiring minds need the recipe too! And please share photos of the quilt as it is coming together!
Jess made this gorgeous clean and simple birthday card - she's doing both a soup and nuts for this challenge. She finished this lovely card and she's overhauling her crafting space too! Her soup portion is that she's going to try and make more clean and simple cards during the year! Good for you! And what a wonderful surprise to see our old OG friend Bobbi is back! Welcome back! Go and drink in with thine eyes this beautiful "therapy room" (LOVE that) she has created and organized for herself, it's wonderful. Here's a little taste of what she did!
Thank you all so much for your great takes on this theme! It was fun to visit your blogs and see your hard work and beautiful projects! Stay tuned for our next challenge tomorrow!
And remember to take breaks when you shovel - it's important to conserve your energy!!! LOL
