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!


You're So Sweet - CPS # 250 - Crate Paper

Hello!  I hope you are having a great weekend.  Here in northern Georgia it's rainy and wet and foggy ... perfect weather for crafting!  Today I wanted to share a card with you that I made for Card Positioning Systems (CPS) sketch # 250!   I used some of the 'Farmhouse Collection' from Crate Paper, and right now I think that's my favorite line ... but then I say that about all of them!  :O)  Here's a picture of the sketch for this week ...

And here is a picture of my card based on the sketch ...
