Merry Christmas Hanging Snowflake

I traveled a lot this year and from before Halloween though until the second week of December, I was out and about in Europe and Asia. This was a good news, bad news sort of thing. Good news for me, I saw and experienced a lot of cool things. Bad news, this obviously cut into…

Dollar Tree Witch Sister Trick or Treat

Dollar Tree has some great, inexpensive items perfect for craft projects. In the framing area, they have several hanging frames with artwork in them like a 3-D wall hanging. These are great to remove the art inside and decorate however way you want. In my case, I did a Halloween hanging box, using mostly Dollar…

Two Sisters on the run

I was able to be a part of an outdoor art installation in Santa Clarita. I was told to do a banner of some sort that would hang from the trees and to reinterpret a piece of art however I wanted to do it. The first photo is my inspiration. The rest of the photos…

Bunny Curiousity

I’ve been really busy the past few months, trying to actually use some of my stash. Years ago, I was on a kick of collecting all the cigar boxes to use to fill with 3-D mixed media scenes. At the time I did make a few Christmas scenes, but I quickly turned my attention to…

Medals of Honor

I’ve been playing around with fabrics lately, mostly trying to mix it up with a lot of my other art supplies. My collection of felts, trim, buttons, embellishments and so forth are starting to collect dust. Seeing all that money tied up into impulse buys really upsets me, so I turned my attention to trying…

Tiny Holiday Houses

Last year, I was attending one of my favorite monthly events (Long Beach Flea Market) and came across these little cardboard houses. I guess if they were in original perfect condition, they would be worth a lot of money, but lucky for me I found a box of damaged ones for like $20 or so….

Christmas projects and tags

Last year, I was creating a ton of tags and Christmas projects. Took many photos, and then, did what most people do and just didn’t bother posting them. Now that the hectic life of 2017 is over, I’m just getting around to posting. Well, I’m just going to schedule these out for the later part…

Rolodex for the Romantic Fool

At the end of January and throughout February, I just kept on keeping on with the romance theme on Rolodex card.  I’m determined to fill my albums and actually, both the index card and the rolodex (memorydex) albums are getting fairly full.  I’d really love to be able to show progress all year with these,…

Christmas Junk Journal

In 2017 I joined a few Facebook groups in order to find some inspiration. Sometimes I still in front of my craft table and just not know what to make or do. This is a problem as I start feeling super lazy and I really just want to get into that headspace that art puts…

Rubber Stamp Collage

I have quite the collection of rubber stamps. I love collage. Coloring is relaxing. One of my resolutions has been to use my collection of rubber stamps more. I joined a Facebook group after visiting the Viva Las Vegas Stamps store and they had a challenge. I thought that I would stick to their challenge…
