Sugar Skull Classes

Hey everybody!!  Been having more fun teaching some mixed media classes. I had so many request for sugar skulls so I thought I'd give it a try, and guess what?!  Everyone did fantastic! I think what I loved most is how nobody's piece looked the same. All these ladies have really put their own spin and own personality into their piece. Classes are getting more and more popular and I couldn't feel more blessed. I can't wait to do more. I've been busy on my own projects and I'll be posting some of those soon. Thank you all for stopping by!!  See you all soon!!

Love these pieces!  They kind of taken on a life of their own. They've become a very popular piece. I'm making them like crazy. What's been great about these pieces are the personal touch. Everyone has wanted to include their own special quote. I'm having a blast making these. I've already gotten a couple more orders for a few more. Well back to the studio!  Thanks for stopping by!  Come back soon!

Crazy, Crazy and Blessed

Sorry it has been so long since I've posted, but it has been crazy busy in my craft world. The month of March was so much fun. I got to start teaching classes in our local nursing and rehab facilities. These classes were a blast. The folks I've met are all so interesting and have the most amazing stories. I'm being hosted by Amarillo a Home Care Services. They have been so good to me, they are great people. Now to April...it has been equally as busy. I did my first craft show of the 2015 season. It was held at Amarillo High School. I'm truly blessed. I had a great show!!  I got the most amazing feedback. Here are a few pics from the show. I'm off to the craft studio to work on some new projects. I'll be back soon. Thanks again everybody for your support!

Love is in the air

Another busy season. I'm feeling very blessed. Made everything from mixed media canvas piece, mini album, cards and candy bar sliders. This is always a great time of year. What I love is that all my orders came in from guys. I hear the same thing on ever order. They want something different. They want to make their loved one feel special. I think that's awesome and I appreciate that they come to me to help achieve that. Another thing I loved about this season is that I got to try out several different techniques. Everything from paint and messy hands to creative paper and ribbon folding. It never gets old. I love my passion for this craft. I hold this talent dear. I thank you all for supporting me. Please come back and see other new projects I'll be working on.

Happy 50th!!

Welcome back everyone. Here is a special order card for a 50th birthday. I was just told he liked beer and I could go from there. I decided to pull out my Gelli plate and create my own background using paints and distress inks. I love how it came out. I found this beer pic in a magazine, it worked perfect and the numbers are from Maya Road. It all came together nicely. I started this not knowing how it was going to come out. In the end it was perfect for him. Thanks for stopping by!!

Beginning of 2015

2015 is here!!  Here are a few projects coming out of the craft studio. First is a picture of a card I made for a friend. It's recently been published by Scrapbooking.com for the month of January. This card just defines Hillary. I wanted the card to match her talent and gift of singing. She brings all emotions out of you when she sings and I wanted this card to do the same thing. It's magic, it's that plain and simple. Second piece is one that has quickly become one of my most popular. Sugar skulls are so hot right now. I can't seem to keep these, they sell very quickly. I love to bring these to life with all the bold colors. The image is from Bombshell Stamps. This stamp line offers those one of a kind stamps. I also just have fun creating these pieces. Lastly, this is a piece carrying me over into the month of love. I'm using this piece for a class. My friend owns the local scrapbooking store and has been asking me to teach some mixed media classes. This month I decided to incorporate pictures. I take the basics of mixed media to help people create their own one of a kind project. I can say my new year has been pretty awesome. Please keep coming back because I have some great new ideas for this year. I'll be thinking a lot outside the box. Thanks again for stopping by!!  Till next time!
