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!


The Kraft Journal 'Watch Us Wednesday' Tutorial

Hello, and Happy Wednesday!  I am here with a post for The Kraft Journal, and a very cute project that I made using scraps of paper and ribbons and such.  This week's theme was 'Use Your Scraps', and it was my week to do the tutorial, so I came up with this sweet 'love' themed mini album ...

The album measures 3 3/4" x 4 3/4" not counting the rings that bind it and the ribbons.  Here are pictures of each of the pages ...
