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!


Sugar Creek Hollow - The Colors of Fall

Fall is definitely in the air around here!  In fact, for the last few days we've had below normal temperatures, making the air crisp and the leaves turn even faster.  Today my hubby and I are taking our canoe to a small lake an hour or so from here and get out and paddle and enjoy the beautiful day!

That said, the challenge this week over at Sugar Creek Hollow is right on time, and so appropriate that I just had to take part in it!  The challenge is to make a project using the colors of fall, and here is my project  . . . 

  • Base (kraft) card stock - The Paper Studio
  • Patterned paper - We R Memory Keepers
  • Image - Little Birdie Blessings
  • Lace and ribbon - My stash (very old, can't remember where I got them!)
  • Ink - Stampabilities
  • Button - Buttons Galore and More
  • Sentiment - SRM Stickers

  • Computer and ink jet printer
  • Cricut Expression and Walk In My Garden cartridge
  • Scissors, craft knife, rotary cutter and ruler

When I found this image from Little Birdie Blessings I knew it would make a great card!  The graphic of the corn is so large and so beautiful!  I hope you have enjoyed your visit today!  Now I'm off to get dressed and head out to paddle!  Blessings, Becky
