Happy Thanksgiving. Hope everyone enjoys this wonderful day, takes time to be thankful, and eats some pumpkin pie.


Here is one of the cards I did today. I used prismacolor markers to get such a vibrant image. I love those things. I still have a lot to learn when it comes to blending and using them in general but, they are truely fun to use. Happy Thanksgiving.


Here is another ATC I did. This was for a BasicGrey paper specific themed swap. BasicGrey is one of my favorite lines of papers and fibers. I used the Gypsy paper line and the fibers from O' Baby Girl. I wired the antennae on each butterfly and curled the top with a pencil. The butterfly is stickled and adhered with a dimensional. I glitter painted the whole bottom section to give it a shine.

I am really liking the ATCs. They are fun, quick, and less waste of papers and CS. If you have not tried one yet you should.


Here is one set of the many ATCs I have been working on the past week. This is my first attempt at ATCs . I really enjoy making them, now I am hooked! Check often, I will be posting some of the other ones soon.
This one is Tim Holtz specific. I finally cracked open the GRUNGEBOARD I have been hoarding.


The take out boxes were simple. I made a square tag and attached with ribbon onto the handle. I will use these for small Christmas gifts and/or baking. A couple cookies and some candies will fit perfectly.

They could also be used at each place setting with each guests name at your Holiday table. What a nice place card filled with goodies.

Good Morning. I wanted to post a couple close up pictures of the paper ornaments from this weekends workshop. I am going to use these on my Christmas Tree this year along with some other paper and vintage ornaments. I apologize for the less than perfect picture. Thanks for looking, let me know what you think.


I have been so busy with my work and craft schedule this week that I have not had time to work on my blog. Gosh... this blogging stuff is going to take some time and computer creativeness (both of wich I have very little). Here are some pictures of some items made at a Holiday Workshop I hosted at my home this past weekend. We used the Holiday Promotion Kit through Stampin' Up! and Country Living. What a nice stamp kit for anyone wanting quick/ simple Holiday projects. It would be easy for a beginner or an advanced stamper. The kit consists of chipboard, papers, stamps, inks, ribbons, elastic cords, gemstone brads, adhesive and glitter. It was fun to assemble and create some simple yet satisfying Christmas tags and ornaments. Check out more ideas in this months COUNTRY LIVING Magazine. You will surely be inspired.


First Post!!!

Wow! I am officially a Blogger! I hope I can keep up with all that is needed to be successful. I am off to craft... my brother is here and it is "crafty Sunday". We are trying to do Sunday dinner, crafting, and hang out every Sunday. So far it has been three weeks. We are not getting much done- the Holidays are quickly approaching.
