Hello my crafty friends. Long time no see. I have been busy though. I received a 3 part order from a wonderful lady in California that does not mind my creative craziness. I had already completed a Valentine door hanger and picture card for February. Got a throw in Wedding card and really cute Do Not Disturb door hanger and here are the last two requests. For graduation an altered journal book and personalized clothes bags then for a birthday I altered a cigar box which had two blinged frames of loved ones inside. There is a birthday card and a graduation card also. I really enjoyed this challenge which took me out of my comfort zone. Thank you for stopping by and I hope I have inspired someone to try something different.

Hello my friends. Hope everyone is doing well. I am good and inspired each day by something different. Had fun this past weekend with my sister creating a milk jug plastic bag holder. Inspiration was found on Pinterest. You can make so many thing with empty plastic containers and a great way to re-purpose. Next we made some adorable light switch plates. I had made some of these years ago, but decided I wanted some new ones for my kitchen wall. This was a messy job as you have to use resin. Perhaps you could do it with Mod Podge also as resin is a bit pricey and you must work fast. Anyway, here they are and I hope I have inspired you to try something different. Thanks for stopping by.

I received a request for a special Valentine card and door hanger for a lovely lady in California's God daughter. She likes to embrace full figures and self acceptance. I love doing full figure images especially those done by Mr. Robert Jackson. She was thrilled with both items and that makes me smile. Thanks for taking a peek at my blog.

I am so proud of myself. I am gonna be sure to get all my giveaways done no later than February. If I was to spread them out throughout the year, I would probably forget someone. I decided to do another gift set of cards because I love to make cards and it is easy shipping. Hopefully the recipient will love them as much as I loved making them in one of my favorite colors and hers too. Jackie Powell this is the best orange I got for you. Sharing with you so you can share with others. Take care everyone.

Hello folks, I missed you. This is my first post for 2019 so Happy New Year everyone. Hope your year has gotten off to a great start. For the last few years I have committed to give away something that I have created to 3-5 people. There is no catch, you don't have to re post or pay it forward or nothing. Just answer what I request and I do a random drawing. My three this year were Tammy Thomas of Tucson, Jackie Powell from Kansas and Ollie Moore-Woods I think she now lives in Louisiana. I have completed my first gift which is a card set. I might make the others the same thing since I love making cards. Anyway stay tuned throughout the year as I like to do periodic giveaways. See you next time.

Hello people. I know you did not miss me, but I missed you really :) Life has been extremely busy lately. No matter what, I try to always find time for me. I have a passion for crafting and it soothes my soul. I started a craft group about 18 years ago or so called Wine and Dine Scrappers. I was scrap booking then. Lots of different ladies over the years but 5 of us remain the same and are now the Original Wine and Dine Crafters. We now are into card making and altered art. Every year we put on a holiday crop that has a theme. This year was Speakeasy. Just want to share the decorations I made, my card swap, and for the gift exchange we were to alter cigar boxes. Hope I will be able to post again real soon. Thanks for stopping in.
