Great Create Project List

So, I signed up to take part in the Great Create hosted by melissa on my house is vanilla. It's a fun exchange of crafts, and the best part is that you are encouraged to make TWO of each thing on your list so you keep one and send one! By the end of the year you have 12 (or in my case 11) items that you made for yourself and 12 (or 11) handmade items from other crafty people. I'm very excited about it, so I made up a list of the things I plan on making.
I like to have fun with fonts.

I'm going to be making these in no particular order... Just whatever I feel like making each month. And I'm so excited to see what the other crafters come up with.

Also, I've been asked about my business card holder. I used this tutorial to make it (super simple).

I used the same fabric that is scanned onto my business cards and in my etsy banner. I believe it is Heather Bailey.

The last photo is me flipping this baby open like an FBI badge. Makes me feel important.

I've been pretty busy the last few days; I just got back from Las Vegas where I saw George Strait & Reba in concert (!!!), and I whipped up a few little clutches before I left.
I was kind of inspired by the gathered clutch tutorial from Noodlehead. Instead of a horizontal gather, I made mine vertical, and layered it on top of the print fabric.

We went to the concert for my cousin's birthday, so I gave her the purple/yellow one as a gift.
The other ones are going up in my etsy shop.

I'm off to finish some homework and decide what I should make for my February swap gift!
