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!


Couldn't Stand It!!!

Yep, it's true, I couldn't stand it . . . couldn't go another day without making a card. Withdrawals were getting really bad! I hadn't made a card since before Christmas - at least a month ago, and I just had to break down and make one! Of course it's a Valentines card, and I'm quite pleased with the outcome. Obviously it's not always true that if you don't use it you'll lose it, lol!

Here it is >>>

  • Cardstock - Bazzill
  • Papers - Fancy Pants 'Splendid' by Michelle Coleman
  • Striped is 'Lovey Dovey'
  • Hearts are cut from 'Queen of Hearts' (glued onto chipboard and popped up on foam dots)
  • Stickles 'Diamond'
  • Vintage lace, button and ribbon from my stash

It feels good to be back in the game! Maybe by next week I can join in on a few of my favorite challenges again. Until then, keep creatng! Becky

Oooo, I like it!
I wanted to also say "Thank you!" for coming by and paying me a visit today. Thanks for your thoughts on my jars. I used to have stuff in them...but in that photo I just had them set out and with the sunlight shining through, it looked so pretty to me I just had to snap the picture :0)
I hope your day was great!
