Hi, I'm Torrey. Welcome to Left Field, where creativity runs amok and imagination is ALWAYS more important than knowledge. Shoes are not allowed but ties are optional. This is a repository of snippets from my life out here in Left Field. One never knows what shiny bits of creativity will be found here... cards, scrapbook layouts, photography, poetry, recipes, ponderings, rantings and musings. It could be anything! Life in Left Field is always changing, always real, always ...interesting.

She Had Me at Chocolate...

Hidy Ho fellow artsy Divas and...guys

...Wait, that doesn't sound right--what's the male equivalent of "Diva" anyway?...hmm, I think I'm gonna call them "Daves" or "Divos" (nah, that reminds me too much of Devo--and all I can picture is strange guys in red flower-pot hats...funny, but, no). Let me start this post over again.

(yeah, that's better).

I invite you to take a look at a new card-making challenge blog. I know what you're thinking--"Not another one". Au contraire, mes amis !!! (uh oh, Torrey's typing in French AND bolded italics...watch out)

(insert drum roll here)

Chocolate, Coffee & Cards Challenges (CCCC for short) is hosted by an enthusiastic gal named Angie--who, btw, does NOT make cards. WHAT???  IS THIS EVEN POSSIBLE??  In the immortal words of Vizzini from Princess Bride... INCONCEIVABLE!!! She may not be a crafter (yet), but she LOVES challenge blogs. So, she started her own, and that's how Chocolate, Coffee & Cards was born.

I have been selected as one of the founding designers (WOO HOO!!! I feel like a pilgrim landing at Plymouth Rock). I'm very happy to be a part of this new challenge blog. This is my first stint as a challenge blog DT member--gonna be FUN! Here is the 411 on what it's all about:
  1. Challenges will be run every 2 weeks, every-other Friday, starting December 2.
  2. Each challenge will be sponsored (yes, this means prizes) by a different company --the sponsor for the first challenge is Bugaboo Stamps...YIPPEE!
  3. There will be other events throughout the year too, so check back often and participate for a chance to win FaBuLoUs prizes and get terrific ideas from our designers and the other challenge participants!
So, drop by CCCC (hmmm, could I just call it CX4??) and create along with us! It's gonna be fun!

Honestly, she had me at "chocolate".


  1. Congrats! I look forward to seeing more of your amazing work. Hope you are having a wonderful weekend.
