Archive for the 'Technique Lover’s Challenges' Category

A couple years ago I co-hosted the Technique Lovers Challenge on the Splitcoaststampers website.  It was a lot of fun and I learned a ton of new techniques.  Life happened and I had to bow to a new co-host, but a while back I was asked to fill in this week!   I am really […]

Greetings! Goodness!  I have spent the last seven hours at my desk.  I sought out the Technique Lovers Challenge this morning to help me get in gear.  Well, of course the project was treat bags.  Uhhhhh, yes please!  Love me some lil totes! You can find the challenge and the instructions for making the totes […]

TLC380 ~ Either/Or, but Both is More Welcome, friends! It’s my turn to host this week’s Technique Lover’s Challenge.   I completely struggled with what I wanted to do.  Not that I had NO ideas, but I had too many ideas! So, this week’s challenge is to do either a triple easel card (I’ll give […]

Hi Ya’ll! I’m going to just put this out there…. I don’t make cards for St. Patty’s day.   I should be ashamed, too.   After all, we ARE the Clan McMillen! However, I found a tutorial recently on how to make shamrocks out of felt and well… they were just too darn cute!  You […]

Howdy, Friends 🙂 Today I’m just going to quickly share a couple things that I’ve done in the last 24 hours.    I have been on a creative tear and I want to get back to it! Today’s Technique Lover’s Challenge (hosted by my good friend, Judy Rozema) is to use one color in and […]

Howdy, folks… It’s been awhile since I’ve posted.   I can only say that the roller coaster of drama continues in the McMillen household.   Sadly, I’m beginning to get use to it. This week’s Technique Lover’s Challenge is called Acrylic Distress.   The first time I saw the was at my local stamp store […]

Greeting, Friends! Just recently, Joan Ervin and I decided to add a 3rd hostess to our weekly Technique Lover’s Challenge over on the Splitcoaststampers website.   We are so thrilled that Judy Rozema agreed to join us!   She stepped in and covered for me on my last turn as I was under the weather.

Hello, Friends! Well, we have successfully celebrated another Christmas here in the McMillen household.  Our motto this year was “It’s not what’s under your tree that matters… it only matters who’s around it”.   My boys genuinely embraced that attitude.  For Christmas Eve, we had a nice spread of finger foods and several of the […]

  Happy Sunday, Friends 🙂 Over the last week, I’ve started eight projects.   I have had a serious case of short attention span.   The problem (NOT! ) is that there is so much inspiration out there and I  keep coming up with new ideas. A while back I landed on Sankari Wegman’s blog […]

Hi Friends! After several days of listening to the roofers *bang bang bang* the day away, I finally had some peace and quiet this afternoon to get some crafting done. It was not without obstacles, though.   My project for this week’s Technique Lover’s Challenge (to decorate a (gift) bag, incorporated some items that were […]
