Happy 2014!

It is a new year and I refreshed my blog with a new theme.  Out with the old red and black Twilight theme and on to something a little lighter (though you can still see my old Twilight projects in the right margin).  I hope to share and post more this year.  I plan to do more jewelry projects and papercrafts (time willing) throughout 2014.

Here are a few pictures from a calendar I completed just today for my mom.  It is filled with pictures from 2013.

Alas, all good things come to an end.  Our big boss will be leaving us for the leisurely life of retirement.  This is a project I made for the office to add the their well-wishes for RDML David Boone.  The pages are covered in a combination of desert and chocolate chip cookie camo, Washington D.C. and Navy-themed patterned papers.  The retirement ceremony is on April 12, so I fixed the clock hands at 4:12.  Not sure anyone will that subtle details but we’ll see. =)
