Celebrating 30 days of Pisces 2015 Wrap Up Post

Hi everyone :-D

I finally managed to find some time to write this post. Spring arrived and I am busy like a little bee, flying here and there, doing zillion things. :-D

I am Pisces and I decided to celebrate whole period in a crafty way. Pisces period started this year on February 19th at 12:45 AM and ended on March 20th at 11:45 PM. (These time values are for Cavtat, Croatia.) 

I called my celebration Celebrating 30 days of Pisces. I gave myself 4 challenges and tried to complete them in 30 days, which I did.

These were my challenges:
  1. make at least one card every day and post it here on my blog (this excludes DT cards)
  2. make 5 CASE cards or more (my own or from other designers)
  3. make at least 2 projects using techniques/medium never used before (this excludes DT projects)
  4. finish crochet project

Challenge #1: One card every day

This was a big and very exciting challenge for me, because I usually don´t make cards every day, neither I write posts every day. I had some technical problems at the beginning, so I decided to extend this challenge for one day.

I made 32 cards, excluding DT cards.

I made a preview of all cards on my Celebrating 30 days of Pisces 2015 page, so I won´t list all of them here again. But I do want to share (again) my cards that were Honorable mentioned or TOP 3. I am so honored and happy for these recognitions! :-D

Making cards in this period, I realized I am crazy about CAS, mini cards and black/yellow/white color combination. :-D It´s fun how you discover new things about yourself every day. :-D

Challenge #2: Make 5 CASE Cards or more

CASEing cards was my second challenge. I had so much fun CASEing, because I usually don´t CASE. :-D

I made 7 CASE cards.

I made a preview of all cards on my Celebrating 30 days of Pisces 2015 page, so I won´t list all of them here again.

Challenge #3: 2 New Techniques/Mediums

This was also a fun challenge. Trying new techniques or using new mediums is always so exciting.

Just from curiosity, I tried to color with colored pencils on a distressed paper. Results were great! It´s like coloring on a Kraft paper, also something new I tried for my DT project.

Before this challenge, I never build a scene with stamps using stamping and masking technique. It was a time for me to try this, because so many of you are doing that and I looooove it! :-D This mini card was a result and I was very satisfied with it. :-D

Challenge #4: Crochet Project

I started a crochet project (crocheted hippopotamus) on February 5th and finished it on March 20th, just a couple of hours before Spring arrived. In the last minutes of my celebration. 

Pattern I used for crocheting is a design from super talented lady, hiding behind the name Heidi Bears. I fell in love in this super cute Happypotamus when I saw it and purchased a pattern immediately. 

This one was my third hippo and I made it for my niece Tea who is 4,5 years old. I named hippo after her, Happypotamus Tea

I must admit, if I didn't challenge myself to finish this one, I would probably still working on it. So I find this challenge extremely good, as well as Tea. :-D 

_______________________________________________________________________________________

That would be all. I wrapped up all 30 days (well 31). I had so much fun and I hope I˙ll manage to repeat it next year. 

I would like to thank you all for visiting and leaving me comments through my celebration period, and also to apologize that I didn't comment on your blogs so much as I usually do. I did visit you all, my dear friends, but I just didn't have enough time to comment on everything and to keep up with my challenges. I know you all understand. :-D

Big hugs to all and thank you for visiting today. Enjoy and smile! :-D
