Scavenger Hunt and I Heart Macro on Monday

Welcome to another edition of the photo Scavenger Hunt and I Heart Macro!  Enjoy!

1) Love
I've already posted a lot of Valentine's Day and heart related topics here so I decide to switch it up for this theme.

2) Duplicated
This is my second set of St. Patrick's Day cards for 2012 and the first set in my Etsy shop.

3) Trend/Trending
It seems like everywhere you go online now, people have jumped on the Pinterest train.  I got an idea from Pinterest earlier this month for old Christmas cards, and I made it.  I'll have more information about this later in the week.

4) Paper

You can see my St. Patrick's Day shamrock cards in progress and some of my other paper scraps from recent card making.  Yep, in between in season/approaching season cards, I am working on Christmas cards.  I'm already starting...actually I never really stopped.  If I'm going to be able to sell boxed sets for 2012, I'm going to have to keep at it off and on all year.

5) Plastic
We kind of own a lot of Tupperware for two people.  We got a 50 piece set for our wedding and have kept building/replacing from there.  I packed a lunch every single day I was a teacher and sometimes still pack leftovers or sandwiches for Jake.  With all of the cooking and baking that I do, we use about 75% of this every month.

Check out Ashley's blog to see what other people submitted for the themes this week.

Here's my shot for I Heart Macro.
I've slowed down on my photo re-take process, but I'm keeping at it once a week or so.

  13. Rose, You are so talented and expressive with your cares. They are wonderful. Back in 2003 and 2004 I did a lot of notecards using antique photos from the family. I still have a few left and they are my little treasures. Love what you are dong for St. Patrick’s Day. Genie
