Allow me to introduce myself...

So, my name is Nikki. I have been crafting for about 10 years now. I started out just making cards and have added other crafty things throughout the years. I wanted to start this blog because I'm sort of in a rut creativity wise so I thought it would help me get motivated and make some cool stuff. The idea behind this blog was that I would challenge myself with an item or technique or product and then utilize that to make something pretty awesome. I have enlisted the help of my friend Art (he actually volunteered so that I couldn't plan ahead...) and he will be issuing the challenges to me and then I will get to crafting. Since I do so many crafty things, there will be lots of variety as far as products created and since I have sooooo much crafty stuff, there's a lot for him to choose from as well so it won't get boring (hopefully).

So enough rambling... let's get to work. The first challenge is an Artie's Choice because he's the bestest friend ever and is helping me with this. He decided that I should make a birthday invitation using my Gypsy Wanderings Cricut Cartridge and birthday themed paper. Oh, and it has to be fairytale themed... When he first told me this, I sort of panicked. It's more than I anticipated for my first challenge, but I'm going to do it anyway because if I can do this for my very first one, all the rest will be super easy, right? I sure hope so anyway...
