The Problem with Trying New Techniques...

Is that sometimes they do not work. frown.

While I was sick in bed last Saturday I watched some craftsy classes, because, hey! I'm all for learning and trying new things. One thing I quickly realized is that the techniques I use to paper piece are a LOT different than how other people paper piece. (I have a few different tutorials as well as you tube videos if you want to see how I do it.)

I feel like my technique has evolved quite a bit over the years and I am currently very happy with the results I get, as well as the amount of time in which I can complete a project! Quick is a very good thing when you have four young children!!

February 2015 Finishes

I decided this year that I am going to blog all of my finishes for each month. I did blog January's finishes HERE. But then.... I didn't upload my photos for February's finishes until, well, this morning. But anyway, here are my finishes during the month of February!! There are only two, but I do have quite a few more for March, so I'll post those next. :)

But who cares about quantity right?! I love these!!


First up, I made this Celestial Star Mini for Sarah of Pheasantpress.com. You definitely should go check out her site! She is has some amazing paper product goodies!!
