Welcome to Vivacious Va. . . Va. . . Vavoom!


Just starting out here in the blog world so bare with me.  I intend to post a handmade card or project every day.  I say, “intend” and loosely use the timeline of “every” day as my life may not always permit but I will do my best!  Oh, by the way, I’m Jill!  A bit about me:  I have been an active crafter, artist, up-cycler, interior designer, and often just dabble in anything that helps me release stress.  I find crafts help with meditation.  I once read that more people do crafts than play golf, which works for me since every time I have attempted to play golf, I’ve nearly fatally injured someone. . .so I’ll stick to crafting!
The new venture is me back in school full-time for my Masters Degree in Art History. 

Hey Dude!  Skaterboarder Boy. . .Carefree and rid’n the wind!  (Blank Inside) 

I’ll be on a boy kick this week and will try to post some more masculine cards that I hope will inspire you.  The textured background was created with embossing folders and my Cuttlebug and a smige of stripped paper running horizontal and some boyish metal bling.  The boy in the card is a digi stamp and unfortunately I can’t recall where I got it. . .so feel free to post the website, if you recognize it.  I’m not always perfectly organized in my studio/office so don’t expect to see detailed “how-to” intructions here at Va Va Vavoom!
That’s all for today.  Hopefully when I have learned the ropes a little more in google blogspot, I’ll have all the bells and whistles added including my Etsy website where you’ll be able to purchase my cards and other creations in the very near future.
Hope to gain some followers and see you back here again!
