If It's Orange It Must Be a Fiskateer.

Due to football team rivals where I live I usually do not wear orange, but Fiskateer orange is something all together different!  Orange is the new white and black and goes with anything!



If you came from the Fiskateer Blog then you are in the right place.  This is your first stop for the Orange Blog Hop where members of Fiskateers, a community sponsored by Fiskars, is sharing their passion for crafting. 

I've been a Fiskateer since November 2007 when I was given the number 2852.  Fiskateers will tell you quickly that this number is unique and special to every of the members of the Fiskateers community. 

On November 1st 2008 I was named one of the Fiskateers of the Year.  I was overwhelmed then and even more grateful now.  My favorite chocolate was the back drop of my experience in Hershey PA!  I created this layout this week to share with you a bit about the experience.



I used my Fiskars Paper Trimmer and my Threading Water Border Punch.

Being part of the Fiskateers is a unique experience.  It's more than a messageboard but a true community of caring and sharing crafters.  

Here's a 30 second peek at a project I did for outside.  With the heat and lack of rain around here not too much is blooming.  With the help of my Fiskars Paper Trimmer;  Round 'n Round, Seal of Approval, and Loves Me, Loves Me Not Squeeze punches; along with a Fiskars Fingertip Craft knife I created an orange pinwheel garden near where our swing is located.  I had fun making them.

Create your own video slideshow at animoto.com.

I do have a RAK and would love to giveaway a Fiskars Combo Border Corner Punch Lace & Lattice.
Leave a comment on this post and I'll draw a random winner and post the winner on Monday Morning.  I would love for you to "Follow Me" but it is certainly not required.

Your next stop on the Orange Blog Hop is Kelly Starsky Fiskateer #6446.  Enjoy Orange Hopping today and tomorrow.

Gratitude List
1.  friends within my crafty world
2.  Amber, Hannah, and baby Safdi
3.  this is the day the Lord has made I will rejoice and be glad
4.  my understanding other half
5.  a Creative God who created each of us to be creative

  23. Who says crafting and football have nothing in common...this is the kickoff, isn't it? You have sent the ball deep and I believe the game will be a good one. Can you tell I grew up with 3 brothers and a father who played for the Boston Red Sox? More sports metaphors are sure to follow, thanks for letting me into your group. My supplies and knowledge could both use adding on to.

  24. Debby--you are a wonderful blog organizer and Fiskateer inspiration! You must have been drinking a lot of orange soda (or do you call it "POP"?) to make all those pinwheels. I love the video.
