About Me

I am a techno/gadget freak. I love almost anything that has to do with computers and software. I have an engineering background, but I haven't worked in that field for over 10 years. I married my wonderful husband in September 2004 and look forward to spending every single day of the rest of my life with him. I love cats and even call myself "Cat".

Jasmine's Crafts

My niece is a talented little girl and she loves doing crafts.  Every once in a while I send her a bunch of craft stuff that I pick up for her, or stuff that I'm not using.  I usually have a box under my table that I keep the stuff in and when it gets full, or its a special occasion like her birthday I send her the box. Well, for her birthday this past summer, I sent her a bunch of stamping stuff.  I bought a stamp kit at Walmart and it was really nice. There were I think 8 stamps sets and a few other things.  I pulled out a bunch of paper from my huge stash and sent her a whole whack of patterned paper and card stock and some ribbon, embellies, and ink pads I wasn't using.  She loves it.  So now, we have crafting dates over the internet via Skype (my family uses Skype a lot to keep in touch).  So, I told Jasmine that I would post her projects on my blog so she can show the world her creations too - just like her aunty.

This is Jasmine's first project we did together over Skype.  Its a little gift bag/box.  I think she did amazingly well with it considering I was giving her verbal instructions and trying to show her over the webcam how to do it.



She used a stamp I had sent her on the front (the teddy bear - from the dollar store) and she coloured in a stamped image I sent her.

I think she did a fabulous job.  If you have a minute, please leave her a comment.  She's only 9 and I know it will thrill her to death to know people are looking at her crafts.

Have a great day!


UPDATE:  Here is what Jasmine wrote in an email to me:
