Rosh HaShanah is Coming!!

I don't know if you know that holiday so I'll tell you a little bit about it (or in other words - I'll quote Wikipedia):

Rosh Hashanah is a Jewish holiday commonly referred to as the "Jewish New
Year". It is observed on the first day of Tishrei, the seventh month of
the Hebrew calendar, as ordained in the Torah. Rosh Hashanah is the first of the High Holidays or Yamim Noraim ("Days of Awe"), or Asseret Yemei Teshuva (The
Ten Days of Repentance), the most solemn days of the Jewish year, which
conclude with the holiday of Yom Kippur. Rosh Hashanah is
the start of the civil year in the Hebrew calendar (one of four "new year"
observances that define various legal "years" for different purposes).

Anyways, so every "Rosh Hashanah" we exchange gifts or at least greeting cards with our friends and family members.

Like every weeks for the last month or so I met with 4 other friends of mine (you'll more about them soon...) and we exchanged gifts (although we said that we won't... lol).

Look at what I got from them:

I'll go from left to right: Tamar gave me a little bag of goodies (Ribbons, Brads, Tags etc...); Diana gave me an altered box (loaded with sweet cookies inside); Ronit gave me the cute card, on the bottomof the picture, that holds 2 "sets" of cookies (you see only one "set"... I ate the other one...); and Maya gave me a home made jam with a tilda greeting card.

I love you guys! Thank you!

I hope you all have a great year!

A few new cards

Here we go...

For a long time I've been wanting to create some new cards out of some new designs that I find on the web every once in a while.
So, I sat down throughout the day on Saturday and made three cute cards with some new design.
The first one and my personal favorite is the buckle card:
I love the way you open the card. It's so cute.
In addition, I created it in my favorite color combo.

Another card that I like (again, with a loved color combo) is the tri-fold card:

Last but not least, is it usual card? is it an artistic piece for your desk? No. It's just a pop-up card... lol...
I hope you like them.
Thanks for looking!

Another Blog Candy

This time, it's on Jennie's blog.
Jennie is on my SBS19 group and she broke her arm a while back but now it's getting better.

I'm so glad you arm is better now, Jennie!

An Awesome Blog Candy With a Cause

I recently found out about a wonderful blog. Carolyn King is raised a blog candy of about 1000$ worth to remember and honor all the caregivers of Alzheimer patients around the globe.

My grandmother passed away last January because of that horrible disease so I want to thank Carolyn for this wonderful cause and effort.

Go and visit her blog and see what it's all about.

Another one?!?!

Well, in addition to my newly created Hebrew blog, I've create a links blog.
I usually keep all my links for future projects in my favorites folder but it's full to the top...
So I thought, why not create a blog that shares all the links that I find on the web with everyone and keep them all organized?
Well, why not?

I'll update the blog every few days that I'll have some new projects that I like.
Plus, I'll update every post that I use with the picture of what I've created out of the project.

So, have fun everyone!

First Mini Album Template

This is actually the only thing I got around to do this weekend. I decided to work with my Bind-it-All so I created a mini album to show people as template of a mini album when they’ll want to buy one.
All the pages have only embellishments. No pictures. Have a look.

The first picture is the first page. I used a piece of transperancy paper to create a clear tag of the baby's details:
All the other pictures show the actual mini pages I've created just to show what the page would look like:It turned out quite cute. Don’t you think?

A new Hebrew blog

OK, now it's for real. I've created a Hebrew blogon an Israeli site, but that site seems to hate me... I just couldn't add pictures or update my posts.
To make a long story short - It was a nightmare.
At the end - I decided to move my Hebrew blog "back home" to :)
So, for all you Hebrew readers - Here's my new Hebrew blog (I feel like I'm repeating myself).

I hope you'll enjoy it!

לכל הקוראים והקוראות שלי בעברית - פתחתי בלוג חדש בעברית. אני מקווה שתהנו ממנו!

My First Sale

Look at that! I've made my first sale! I just can't believe it.

I decided a while back to start and sell my creations. Why not? All the materials I use cost a lo-o-o-o-t of money. Why shouldn't I make some money back out of it? At least to cover my costs.

So, one day I went to work and took the mini album that I made for my sister-in-law's birthday just so I can show off. And, who knew? It worked.
One of my coworkers decided to to order 2 mini albums for her sister and for her mom for the birth of her new nephews.

Here are a few snapshots of the mini albums I created for her:

I finally used my Bind-it-All like I should and it turned out so cute.
The mini albums are about 3.5 by 3 inches so it fits great even in small bags... If you have such cute kids - why not bragging???

I really hope you all like it!
