ICAD 2014

It’s that time again. Index-Card-a-Day 2014 is on! Yes, I failed miserably last year. I didn’t make it past 5 days. In my defense, I was on vacation without internet access shortly after ICAD started. On return, it completely slipped my mind.


Work has been kicking my rear too, but I’m game for another go. My cards will be shown in the left sidebar unless I decide I need blog fodder and insert it here.

Happy June!

I love quick sketches and a wash of watercolor to give it color & depth. I always intend to sketch while I’m on holidays but for some reason, I never do. Today, I decided to pull out my supplies and do a quick little sketch of the first item on my craft table.

I just signed up for a Craftsy Mixed Media: Pen, Ink & Watercolor course. Hopefully, this will kick start my sketching.


Well, it’s only one week into ICAD 2013 and I already failed. Last few days have been busy getting things ready for vacation. And today, the driver showed up early, just as I was organizing my ICAD supplies (just where the blazes did my new package of glue stick disappeared to???). So, that did not get packed. Realistically, I doubt I will have time while on vacation so I will have to drop out. Maybe I’ll do my own in July and August instead. Maybe.

See ya!

ICAD started during CNCH, so the first few cards were all CNCH related. I love the one for day 2 — beaded hearts. I took a workshop with Anita Luvera Mayer on Beaded Heart Pins. I used the leftover scraps and made this little card.

I’ve added a gallery for recent cards on the left. You can hover over a card to see any notes associated with it or click through to my Flickr Set for ICAD 2013.

It will be a challenge for me to keep this going daily in June, but that will be my challenge!

ICAD 2013


Guess what? Index-Card-A-Day (ICAD) is returning for a third year.

I will be traveling during a good portion of June, but I think I will still join in on the fun. I may not be able to post, but I should still be able to create!

Here are some of my blog posts on last year’s ICAD Challenge, and link to my Flickr set.
