Welcome to my blog. My blog is mainly for the sharing of the many projects I make either for swaps, for gifts or just because I was inspired by something I saw on the internet and wanted to give it a try as well. I hope you enjoy what you see and if you have any questions be sure to send me a comment.

Cute tag for RetroArt Cafe's
contest using one of their digital
images.  The woman is their
image and I thought the caption
worked really well for it.

The other day I sat down to start
a project for another swap I might
participate in.  When I went to sign
up for the swap I realized I didn't
even use the theme of the swap
which was Casablanca. Doing a remake.

This is a small project inspired by my favorite local craft store Artco in Tacoma, WA at their April craft night.  You pay a small fee and they do 3 make & and takes, have all their tools available for you to use. And participants bring snacks.  The design they provided for covering this 4x6 note pad was spring like and sweet in yellows and orange, but not really my style.  A couple days ago going through some of my projects I brought home unfinished I was inspired to follow through on this one using left over scraps from Graphic 45's Tropical Travelogue paper line.

VLVS May Challenge - Flowers

Okay.. So my "planning ahead" idea for the May challenge didn't quite fit the actual theme posted of "flowers".  So I had to stretch the idea.  They're just steampunk flowers using some adorable images from VLVS.  The Mama and the 2 little chickagears were from plate #1390.  The little gear baby was an image I purchased seperately and don't have the image number at hand.  My gear flower heads were made using the Spellbinders Sprocket die set (borrowed from my friend Deana). The background paper is from Bo Bunny's "Timepiece" 6x6 paper pad.

My sweet grandsons!

I just have to share some photos of my 6 grandsons.  Our family just "aquired" our 6th (technically 7th since we lost one at his birth 5 years ago) through our youngest daughter's marriage to his Dad last month. They live in Alaska.  

In these photos our newest grandson Easton is in the left photo and he is 12.  In the right hand photo is Corbin 13, Conner 3, Isaac 14 and Jason 15.  Corbin & Jason are brothers, Conner & Isaac are brothers (from 2 of our sons) and Luke is our oldest daughter's son.  All but Easton live near us so I get to see them often.  I daycare for Conner full time and I have Luke about 3 days a week.

Myself with Conner & Luke, Luke & Conner and Luke.
