New Logo and Header of millicentmelissa

With vacation time on my hands, got busy updating all my blogs and even found time to create millicentmelissa's new logo. Let me know what you think :)

Got great tips on how to create a killer blog header using Photoshop over at Overstuffed. Lara used Photoshop Enterprise in her tutorial but you could use Photoshop like I did, same instructions apply anyway. I'm not a Photoshop pro at all but Lara's instructions are easy to follow and quite useful for a newbie like me. Check out her tutorial here

For the digital paper Lara mentions, I found a site where you can download it for free at http://freedigitalscrapbooking.com/. The selections are limited but there are some nice ones you could probably use.

Will be posting more of my Christmas Gift projects in my next post...

First Set of Christmas Gifts Finally Done!

Finally finished the first set of Christmas gifts for my girlfriends! Just in time for the first Christmas party of the year I attended, our Caring Group for Solo Parents.

Had fun doing these pieces especially the bracelet for Jopen for which I used matching pipe cleaners to a Dorset button. Simple and yet ingenuous! Got the idea from Martha Stewart at her tutorial for pipe cleaner ring here.
