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!!

You can ALWAYS do something, even when it seems like there is no solution.

As a follow-up to this post, because I might have been complaining a little, here is what I have been doing about it:
