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.

School themed book using Laura Dennison's Stack the Deck contruction. I used A2 (5-1/2x4-1/4)sized envelopes for the pages. It's a neat little book and it's construction allows the pages to liw open. Here is Laura's video for assembly. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Z_6pe2ZhDI

from Retro Cafe Art. They offer a free page of art
routinely on their Facebook page for us to use in
their monthly challenges. The tag is pretty simple to
make, but I think it's adorable. I had just bought the
tiny bells a few days before they posted the page of
art for download. It has such a sweet tinkling sound.
It might be hard to see, but I used a clear sparkle gel
pen to make dots on the coat fur. Back in the day
when I was a little girl these style of coats did have
sequin sparkles on the fur.
I want to thank those of you who comment here on the blog or in the various Yahoo groups I participate in. I so appreciate all the kind words everyone has to say about my projects. I receive the notices in my e-mail and am very forgetful about getting back to the blog to say thank you. So THANK YOU!!
The step-by-step photo tutorial along with the video tutorial make the project easy to create. You can put Hershey's Kisses, 3 Hershey's Nugget mini's fit side by side in the box, Dum Dum / Mini Tootsie Pop suckers will fit... for cute little candy treats for your favorite little Trick or Treaters. I also made a little Christmas version. You can roll up dollar bills, tie with a ribbon and insert for a gift.

attended a 1 hour class with Aimee and Meghan from
Graphic 45 where we made three jumbo (9-1/4" x 4-1/2")
sized tags. It was fun. And G45 was very generous with
product we received in our kits. After the class we did a
little shopping. Then we made a few craft store stops as
well as a late lunch stop at IHOP. After which we headed
south to Tacoma for Artco's special craft event.
