My photo
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

Valentines Gift

Another version of the altered shadowbox.  I made this for my mom for valentines day and I think it came out really cute.  I went online and watched some youtube videos and learned how to make some new flowers.  These are the roses and a flower made out of a paper bag.  Love it when people share their ideas and techniques. I found a poem called "Moms Hands" which perfectly described my mom.  I think she really liked it.  We are getting ready for a crop in March so lots of new things coming out soon.  Till next time!

Altered Frame

Here is something really cool!  Prissy and I found these shadow box frames several months ago on clearance.  We saw them and knew we could do something with them.  I kept walking past them in my craft room so today I finally did something with it.  The photo shows the before and after.  I put metal around the frame and created a layout using my sister and her boyfriend and my subjects.  I think it came out really cute and really glad I have more frames.  I will see what else I can come up with.
