Daily Card Project

If I could just spend the rest of my life being crafty or scrapbooking, I would be beyond satisfied. For as long as I can remember I have been into crafts. My friend Sarah and I started our obsession when we met in summer camp after first grade. We would go to Zany Brainy to fill up our material stash from the dollar section, {Anyone else remember this? It was literally a creative 7 year-old's heaven!} and then would go home and "organize" our supplies into our tackle box and create whatever we could with pipe cleaners, sequins and beads. We were always scheming what we could "sell" and how to be young, crafty entrepreneurs. But I digress...

Anyways what I'm getting at here is that I've absolutely loved creating things ever since, so when one of my friends showed me Elise Blaha's blog and I stumbled across her "Daily Card" project, I knew I wanted to jump in. Everyday for 10 months she decorated a playing card based on a certain event that happend or how she was feeling. By the end of this project she had 300 cards that put an extremely creative twist on a journal. 

Love it!

When I was home a couple of weekends ago, I found an old pack of playing cards and rounded up some pretty papers to start my take on the project. I'll be sure to keep you update with what I create!

Here's Day 1:  

Simple, but had to start out with my favorite quote, obvi :)
