Thanks for visiting!

Welcome! This is the place where I share my artsy and crafty projects. I am an evolving artist these days ... finding myself enjoying less of the cards and mini albums that I have made for years, and turning to art journaling and more artistic endeavors. I have always enjoyed some craft or other, and some of my earliest memories of my mother helping me make paper dolls and other crafts. I am now in my 60's and finding myself more passionately enjoying creating beautiful things and learning new skills and techniques and products.

While you are here I hope you will find inspiration and ideas for making your own projects, however any images or projects you find here are my personal property and should not be used for your own monetary gain, or for contests or challenges. Thank You!


A Chilly Wednesday and My Scrapping Space

Good Morning Friends! It's a very nippy Wednesday here in north Georgia! When I went out at about 8 AM it was 33 degrees out on my deck, and that brisk wind we had yesterday had settled, so I'm guessing when hubby left for work about 5 AM he had a bit of frost on the windshield!

I haven't made anything since Sunday except for a card I made for a friend to give to her brother for his birthday, and I was in a great hurry to get it in the mail to her and forgot to take a pic, so you'll have to imagine how it looked - chocolate brown cardstock, blue, brown and cream striped Wild Asparagus paper, a vintage golfer clipart image, and a greeting. It was very pretty - I promise!

So, the main reason for this post is to show Dawn in Scotland my scrapping space. She's having a little giveaway to celebrate the 20,000th hit on her blog, and to enter you have to show your scrapping space and if you have any, your furry crafting buddies. Well, here are a couple of old pics of my space because, truly, you don't want to see how it looks right this minute (trust me!).

This is my main work space. A very simple 6 foot long folding table that I've assembled all my little storage drawers on so most of my stuff is easily accessible. Please forgive the really bad picture as these were made on a very dreary February evening.

This is my desk, which is very much a part of my crafting space. This is where I'm sitting as I type this post. To the left you can see my only window and my sewing machine, which I have begun to use much more in my cardmaking.

Okay, this is my closet, which we modified by adding a second shelf to make room for more storage. We don't hang clothes in here, but we do store our household files, craft supplies, and in the brown cardboard box in the lower righthand side - my Christmas dishes. For years I stored them in the top of the guest room closet and last year hubby told me "No More!" he was tired of getting that heavy box down in November and putting it back up in January.

And these are the most important part of my craft room - my furry craft buddies, Bailey on the left, and Bessie on the right. As you can tell, Bessie is quite disgusted that Bailey has the 'good' rawhide bone. There are others there, just not THAT one! My 'girls' are both mini Dachshunds, but Bailey is more mini than Bessie, who is a real porker! They are my shadows, my entertainment, my loving when I need a cuddle, and my company when I'm home alone all day. They are 'the girls'!

So, enough from me for now - time to go put on that big pot of Tuscan Chicken Veggie Soup for dinner tonight. I'll get it going and it will simmer on the back burner all day and be ready when we're ready for it! I'm going to post the recipe on my other blog HERE shortly in case you are interested. Have a great day! Becky

I am definitely going to have to check out your soup recipe. That sounds fabulous and I love to get new recipes. Think it sounds like something my kiddos would eat, too.
Love your little furry scrappy buddies and what fun to see so much of your space.
