#the100dayproject : handmade card 70/100 : never give up

but in all seriousness, i couldn't do what i do without the help of this guy. during show season he's right there with me, doing all the heavy lifting and talking me up to anyone and everyone. he's great at feedback and at suggesting ideas for things i would never think of and i love when he keeps me company in the craft castle. he encourages me to spend far too much money on new supplies ["because you need them, obviously" is one of his go-to lines] and he's one of the most incredible humans i've ever met. so it's well deserved that he earns employee of the month. love you babe!

#the100dayproject : handmade card 58/100-2 : miss you
today's card is a little different than any i've made before and i haven't yet decided how i feel about the end result. the inspiration wheel landed on die-cut element and some additional inspiration/motivation came from helping a friend pack up her moving truck - so my thoughts steered me towards a miss you type card.

over the weekend of black friday, i'm participating in two online events! i'll be sharing more detailed information as the events get closer, [including an epic online catalog with highlights from all the vendors!], but i encourage you to check out the social media for both, listed below. if you mark yourself as "going" to the events it helps spread the word and then people you know can see the info as well - which is helpful to me and the other talented makers
