Where has the time gone and what happened to all my photos?!

Well this is an unpleasant surprise...coming to revive my blog and finding that all the photos are gone?  I have no idea what could have happened except maybe blogger did something?  Maybe my time expired?  I just don't know, but I am sad...or maybe I should embrace this opportunity?

Maybe it's the universe's way of telling me it's time for a new chapter?  Turn the page...write a new page...create again.  Well...I am still "quilt inspired" and will post some pics from the recent past (2015) just to catch you all up :)

We got a ton of snow in 2015!

A little obsessed lately with paper...and maybe ink, stamps and dies?!

Can't keep me away from quilt inspiration and creativity...
These are Valentine's Day cards for my oldest and dearest friends that live too far to see but once a year...can't wait till we are together again!  
These Perfect Pairs stamps are from Lil' Inker Designs and are just too much fun to color with copics!  I also used some Wet Paint Cuts dies from Papertrey Ink to embellish and send a message...
"Happy Friends".
These were cards made for my brother and Mom...birthday cards with a variety of supplies from Lil' Inker Designs (die) and Stampin' Up! Stamps and Papertrey Inks and dies and some Distress Ink for the edges.

Borrowed this Circle Circus set from my Stampin' Up! Demonstrator...gosh I love circles!

Had a ton of fun making these from handpainted paper, using some embossing powders and Copic markers!  Stampin' Up and Papertrey Ink stamps.  They ended up as a thank you gift set to someone so kind at work.

Love snowflakes lately...go figure as we are burried under over 3 feet of snow these days...and love Lil' Inker Designs Dies with the wonderful stitching lines...goes with the Happy House Quilts theme of quilt inspired creations!

Just found Reverse Confetti Design Company products and of course had to get the snow flakes!

I really love this retired Stampin' Up! Sizzix Lattice Die...this creation went to Sara's YMCA before school program teacher as she has left her post in search for greener pastures.  I used a Lil' Inker Designs Quilted Stitched Pattern Die to impress some quilted lines once it was all put together and then added the sentiment with some pop dots!

Loving Aqua lately...kids where away...so the mom could play :)

 PapertreyInc Delightful Dahlia was inspired by a Stamp TV Bold Blooms technique video I watched recently (skip the ad).
 Should have done the Imagine in white but it's clear...kinda ironic :)
Ellie like Zebra and I am not a fan so I played with it a little.
 the picture came out dark...sorry...this is with Rosie Posie from PapertreyInc and the Rosie Posie Step 2 set to match it
This was done with Wildflower Garden stamp set by Papertreyinc with a technique of using the die markers then spritz the stamp with water before you press it onto the paper.
