Gearing up ATC Swap



Welcome back!  Having so much fun with Krazy Island Studios. I've decided to do another ATC swap with them. For this swap the theme was Halloween, and I've had a blast creating my cards. I sometimes love not knowing how my cards will come out and that's exactly what happened here. I just went for it. Using acrylic paints, distress inks and stamps I created these cool cards. I love them!  Getting ready to mail them out. I can't wait to see everyone else's creations. Thanks for stopping by!  I'm heading to the studio so come back soon to see some great projects.

Halloween Projects



These are some fun projects I've been working on. The first one is the ever popular candy bar sliders. These are so much fun to make and the ideas are endless. They make great treats for those trick or treaters out there. I've sold several for teacher's gifts also. Second project is just fun!  It's a witch's hat center piece. I always have so much fun making these. The flowers on the hat are made plastic spoons and aluminum cans. I used some fun embellishments to finish this up. Well I'm headed back to the studio so more projects to come soon. Thanks for stopping by!!

New Mixed Media Projects



Okay...okay my mixed media obsession continues. Here are two more pieces. First one is probably become one of my popular projects. Everybody wants a sugar skull!  It was awesome to use up those small scraps of card stock. My second piece is one of my favorites. Using a Prima stamp along with chipboard from my favorite line Maya Road to create this one of a kind piece. Both of these pieces were so much fun to create because once again I got my hands dirty.  Thanks again for stopping by!  Till next time!  

First Craft Show of 2014


Hello!  I've been busy. Yesterday I went to my first craft show of the season. It was at Texas Tech School of Pharmacy. It was great. Met some great vendors and awesome customers. I got some great feedback. I was told they could see my passion in my pieces. I couldn't ask for a better compliment. I even teared up a few times. People telling me how proud they were of me!  It was just awesome. I had a great day!  Well back to work!  Till next time!

Witch's Hat




Welcome back!!  It's October!!  I'm getting ready for a craft show this weekend and this is one of the items I'm taking. It's my witch's hat centerpiece. I made these one of a kind flowers to bring the hat to life. One flower made from plastic spoons and the other made from coke cans. I also heat embossed the entire hat with clear enamel and it has the most awesome texture. I love creating these one of a kind pieces. I hope it finds a great home. Come back I have more awesome projects coming!

Back from the Fair

Super excited!  I did well at the fair. I won a rainbow of ribbons. Lots of people think I should have done better but in the end I think I did great. Since entering items in the fair I can say all my projects have always come home with ribbons, this year was no different. This time of year just gets me geared up for lots of crafting time. Lots of new projects coming!  Thanks for stopping by!  Till next time!

Off To The Fair



It's that time of year again!  Fair time!  I took my entries down on Wednesday and was nervous and excited all at the same time. I decided to enter four items this year. First is my decorated picture frame. I layered with a piece of aluminum foil, used H2O's to paint and a daisy stamp. It looked great. Second is my greeting card, I used my flower making magic to make the card come alive. Third is my single page scrapbook layout, I have gotten away from scrapbooking but felt my roots pulling me back. Of course I couldn't do a simple layout, I jazzed this one up with all kinds of mixed media. It came out perfect! Last is my recycled detergent bottle turned into a birdhouse. This was getting lots of attention when I left. It's a one of a kind. Love it!  I can't wait to go out and see how I did. It's always fun to go out and see everyone's amazing work. There is lots of talent out there. Thanks for stopping by!  Till next time!
