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!


World Card Making Day - it's on!!!

Welcome everyone! I've been telling about it, and now it's here - or at least for some of you! World Card Making Day is Saturday October 4th 2008 (or the first Saturday of each October) around the world, and since we've got readers all over the world I've gotten an early start on my challenges over on You can find the challenge HERE.

The first challenge is just for fun, and it's all about making cards! You must take three (3) coordinating sheets of 12 x 12 scrapping paper and make as many cards out of them as you can. Then, once they are finished, get a pic or scanned image and upload them onto the thread on The twist? You have to save your trimmings, and also upload a pic of the trimmings. Just so we'll all know how good a scrapper you are!

I got this idea from one of the blogs I frequent, and when I tried to go back and find which one so I could give credit, I couldn't find it, but it's such a great idea!!! If it was your blog, leave me a comment and I'll post a link to it here!

Now, I'm not telling YET how many cards I made, but here are pics of some of them, along with a picture of my leftover trimmings. I took advantage of the opportunity and made Christmas cards to send to my friends, but you can do any kind of cards you want. What a great way to stock up on cards!!!

Now everyone get scrapping, and even if you aren't playing along on, I'd love to see your cards posted in my comments here! Have a great weekend everyone!!! Becky
