I have started this blog to help me get my craft projects out for everyone to see. My crafts are my therapy. I find peace in creating special ideas for friends and family. This is a new adventure for me and I plan on enjoying the ride

Artistic Journey 2010

We are back from Dallas and our Artistic Journey weekend.  It was so much fun and met some great people.  The pics shown are the projects we made over the three day retreat and and a  pic of our wonderful instructors and hostesses.  We learned so much and can not wait to bring this new information back to the Panhandle.  Prissy & I both fell in love with all the Maya Road products.  We placed an order with them yesterday and can't wait to show it off to all the crafters in our area.  Everyday I seem to realize that I feel this is where God is leading me.  I can't seem to get on my hands on enough knowledge and product..LOL!  Can I at some point really make a living at this?...I hope so!  Would be a dream come true.  Prissy thank you so much for another fabulous week and half at Conrad Cottage.  You are such a wonderful friend and will always have a special place in my heart that no one else will every understand.  Your the BEST!!  Now we get to show our BFF that completes our circle, Tammy, all that we learned.  Can't wait for you to show off your skills Tammy...your talent is the ability to visualize a beautiful finished product.  Could not have started this journey without you...and we are not done yet! We are starting to work on some holiday crafts so keep watching the blog for lots of info and gift ideas!!

Hello to all!! Sorry it has been so long since my last post, but exciting things have been happening and I have been really busy!!  I am currently in Dallas with Prissy and we just finished up a weekend retreat called the Artistic Journey.  It was a blast and we met some great people and made some great projects.  Pictures to come when I get back into town.  Another exciting thing to happen is I got to show my birdhouse to Cheryl from Ten Seconds Studio..she loved it so much she included it on her blog and the response has been overwhelming...I have got a lot of positive feedback.  We are staying in Dallas the remaining of this week to attend another class.  I never get tired of learning new crafting skills.  Please keep flowing the blog to watch the great new items coming out for the holidays!
