Hoo Are You Tuesdays


NightOwlCrafting

1. Do you prefer sweet or salty foods?
I LOVE sweets. I can eat something sweet all day, every day. 
 
2. Name your 3 BEST personality traits!
I like to think that I am funny, a good listener, and compassionate. 
 
3. Name your 3 worst personality traits!
The worst one is that I'm a procrastinator. I can also be really stubborn and with certain people I get frustrated and upset very easily.
 
4. Do you collect anything?
Besides crafting supplies you mean? :) Not really. My parents are big collectors so I think they turned me against it. 
 
5. What is your favorite season of the year?
Fall because of my birthday but summer because of the weather!

Cards of the Month - August & September

I am once again a little bit behind on my cards of the month kits. I wasn't really a fan of the cards for August. The theme for this kit seemed to be initials and the technique is embossing (which I have become very good at thanks to my wedding invitations that I'm making myself). You can tell I didn't really like this kit since I only made two of the four cards.

Now, the September kit was fabulous. The theme is obviously fall and the technique is shadowbox cards. I LOVE this kit. The colors are perfect for the season. This is definitely one of my favorite kits by far. What do you guys think?

Baby Brag Book

I know, I know. It's been a while since I've posted. I've been super busy and honestly, slightly lazy. I still have my next project to work on but in the mean time, I finished a baby brag book for a client of mine. I made the whole album using the Fancy Pants Baby Mine collection. I love the way it came out. It's a 6x6 album with spaces for her to insert her photos. And I must say, I'm also a little proud of the slideshow I made. I figured uploading all the pictures would take too long, so I made a little mini movie instead. Check it out below.

Crayon Art

You guys voted for my next project and the result came back with this - Crayon Art! This is easily the most fun I've had with a project. And it's oh so simple. I got one of those cheap $1 crayon boxes from my local craft store and used a canvas I had. The most time consuming part was taking the wrapping off of each crayon. I am IN LOVE with how it came out. So, because you guys did an awesome job picking out my last project - help me pick out my next one! Let me know what you think of the Crayon Art and then vote for my next project! Thanks in advance for the help!



Don't forget to vote on which project I should do next! Here are the Pinterest inspired choices:

Dot Art

Framed Corkboards

Doily Canvas

Jewlrey Organizer
Washer Monogram

Glue stick all the way. I am not a fan of messy glue.
4. Calculator or do it in your head?
Calculator. I SUCK at math.

You guys haven't failed my yet. So please, vote for the next craft you think I should try and then I'll post the result in a later blog post. I plan to do this from time to time, to I appreciate the help in advance!

DIY Drink Coasters


I finally took something I saw in Pinterest (which I am addicted to, by the way) and decided to do it myself. And I'm super happy I did. These coasters were SUPER easy to make. All it took was four 4x4 tiles, scrapbook paper, mod podge, clear bumper pads (for the bottom) and some clear spray paint. I am in love with how these came out. And I'm pleased to say that I'll be offering these (in more designs too) on my new website Creations By Sasha - more on that coming soon, I promise. What do you think?
