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!

CPS # 143 - Merry and Bright

This is the first card I've done for a CPS sketch in almost a year, and it felt really good to get back into the groove and work on something from a sketch. I just love all the coordinating papers from Fancy Pants' Christmas Magic Line. And if you need new ribbons, you should visit Annie @ Glitter Your World for some gorgeous products!

Here is the sketch . . .

Please forgive the dark pictures - I had hoped to get home in time to take them outside in the sunshine, but I had to take Mama to run a few errands and by the time I got home, the sun was almost gone.

Thanks so much for visiting! Becky
