What I did when I was in Charlotte for 2 weeks

My husband works for Bank of America in Charlotte. I have a small craft set-up there. I take stamps and dies with me so I can make cards while I am there. While my husband is at work I have LOTS of time on my hands, so I make a LOT of cards!

On this last trip ~ 336 to be exact!
That doesn't account for the over 100 Tiny Takeout & Pillow Boxes, and all of the embellishments for those I made.

Here they are, sorted and marked with my color coded name stamp.

Let me explain a little. I sell a LOT of cards. I donated $3600 last year to missions at my church. That is a LOT of pieces of paper. I cannot create cards like I make for challenges for PTI and make that many cards.

MOST of the cards I sell are made with patterned paper that I embellish and add a sentiment to.
Don't get me wrong. I make pretty cards. My customers LOVE them. They are just not technique heavy. I also make MULTIPLE versions of the same card. I have a LOT of customers, so that works very well. It is faster to reproduce than to design.

Lately, I am OBSESSED with Enamel Dots. You can take a simple card that obviously needs something and add 3 enamel dots and voila! An amazing card!

I did not take pictures of all of the cards. I would still be working on that! I did take pictures of a representation of most of them. I am not sure if I have finished editing those cards, yet. 
I will post them soon.

I got a new standing work space this week. I am frantically re-arranging my craft room. I hope I do not regret this. I know I sit too much but now things will not be as convenient to access... time will tell. I am sure I will adjust to it...
Anyway, I expect my PTI box tomorrow or Saturday, so I want to be ready for it! I cannot wait to make Bunny Bags!!!

Thank you for looking at my blog!
