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

Canvas Journal

I love, love this book.  I got a custom order request for a journal.  I remember we had purchased several of these canvas books from Maya Road and wondered what I could do with it.  I was kinda nervous when I started.  I misted the cover with several colors from Maya Road and went crazy with decorating the cover.  I really liked it alot.  I was also happy to find out that I was able to heat emboss onto the canvas...who knew?  I also heat embossed some of the inside dividers and decorated.  This was a lot of fun to make and see myself making another one in my near future.  I love it when something comes out way better than you think.  Till next time.....

I get so excited this time of year. We get to see a lot of the new products from some of our favorite manufactures.  I just took a look at some of the new stuff from Maya Road, and WOW they have some cool new stuff coming out.  Can't wait to get my hands on some of this new stuff and starting using it in my projects!!

Metal Picture Frame

I made this frame for my wonderful friend and beautiful Glamour Technician (a term I picked up from "Steel Magnolias").  She loves the famous artist Frida.  I was in Taos with Tammy and Prissy when we came across a local artist who specialized in Frida.  I found this card for Michelle and thought it would make a great Christmas present for her in a decorative frame.  I think she really like it.  Michelle said she had never seen this picture of Frida and she owns alot of books and pics of the artist....so I was very excited to know I found a picture she did not have.  I'm working on a few new things and will post soon...til next time!

I know it has been a long time.  It seems I've been really busy but have not accomplished much.  The holidays are finally over and I'm cleaning up my craft room from the holiday crafting.  I finally got to do some crafting yesterday.  I thought I better start some Valentines.  I came up with this idea after making something similar for Christmas.  I plan on taking orders for Valentines through January.  I promise to keep my blog updated a little better.  I really need to get some crafts out.  Until next time!
