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

Back a To School

Welcome back everybody!! Well today's blog post is something special. It's back to school week here in Amarillo and you know what that means....back to school pics on Facebook. Lol!  I do love seeing all your precious angels but an amazing idea came to mind. What are the parents feeling? So...I created a challenge on Facebook asking the parents to turn the camera on themselves. I wanted to see how they were feeling about the kids going back to school. The replies were amazing. Everybody really started having fun with this challenge. I offered a free 12 x 12 layout to the top five vote getters. Here are a few of the winners. As I finish their layouts I will post those pics. I want to thank everybody that participated. It was a blast to host. I can't wait to figure out what my next challenge will be. Thanks for stopping by!  Come back soon!

Krazy Island Studios ATC Swap

Welcome back!  Well this is something new for me. Along with my friend Prissy we joined in on the fun with Krazy Island Studios. I don't know why but this was both a nerve racking and exciting group to join. I still have some problems sharing my projects with people especially those I don't know. I guess I still fear the judgement of my work. I still wonder if it's good enough. I know I'm harder on me than anyone else but still scares me to wonder what a stranger thinks of my projects. One great thing about this event is it is made up of artist and crafters of all levels. I stepped outside my box and told myself just to have fun. I've got some feedback from some members and they all have been so kind. Guess I didn't have anything to worry about. They separated us into groups of five and you mail an ATC to each member of your group. These are cards I mailed out using the theme Summer Lovin'. I used a stamped image from Bombshell Stamps. Thought she was the perfect image to reflect our Texas flair. Background on cards made using my gelli plate, it was my first attempt at doing this and overall I was very pleased. I definitely want to try this again. Now I can sit make and wait for my ATC cards to start coming in. I can't wait to see what my other members have to share. Thanks for stopping by!  Please come back by and check out more of my projects.
