Hi everyone,

I saw a blog somewhere off Pinterest n someone did a homemade dauber using PVC pipe and make up sponge. I didn't have the PVC pipe but I thought I could use my chipboard instead. I love how they came out. Hope you guys will check it out and try it for yourself. Thanks for stopping by.

Flower craze!!!

So in thinking I'm going through a flower phrase right now. I had an order so I did a bunch of fabric flowers but what I've been crazy about is the paper flowers. I've been trying different roses and different punches and cuts from my cameo. What I'm happy about it is I've made my own stamens for cherry blossom flowers and gardenia flowers. The gardenias you see are made of Manila file folders. Hope you guys like them.

Prima inspired flowers

Hi everyone, I made these flowers inspired by Prima. I'm not sure what an actual prima flower looks like so I can't compare mine but I love how these came out. I used white card stock and color sprays from Lindy to glimmermist to homemade. They're pretty addicting to make. I will have to try pattern papers soon. Not sure how I will use them all but I still love to make them. Hope you will like them as well. Thanks for stopping by.

First altered canvas

Hi everyone,

Hope you're well. I want to share my first canvas I did as a present for my parents. We have this picture at our house and they keep asking if we have extra copies. So I decided to do this for them. I hope they will like it. I kept the background fairly simple and used a stencil to put some Gesso on there for the cool texture in the background. I used a paper from K&company. I wanted to use something different because honestly, I see people using Prima papers everywhere so I'm getting tired of it. Don't get me wrong. I love Prima, but it gets old when EVERYBODY is using it in their projects. Anyhow, there are lots of my handmade flowers on this project. Hope you like it. Thanks for visiting.

My first Christmas Ornament with Sherri Baldy digi

I'm so excited to share with you my first ornament and second DT project. This has been on my mind since I first saw this Digi by Sherri Baldy. As you know I have two girls so this is perfect for me. It was a bit tough getting the image the way I wanted inside the ornament but it turned out just as I expected. Hope you guys like it. You can find the digi at

Jewelry organizer

I had an order for a jewelry display and so I thought I would make an extra one for myself. So this is what I came up with. The pink and black I bought the frame from michaels. I painted it black all over, then splattered pink and then white gesso and crackle paint on top. I Put a piece of lace on the back of it that was from a curtain I bought from goodwill. And waahhllaaaa. The purple one I did a bit more fancier. I used a nice picture frames made the background with ribbons and then added more ribbons with a touch of lace over it. I stapled everything to stay in place. She loved it. Hope you guys like it too and will try for yourselves.

Volunteer and Christmas ornament

I volunteered at my daughters pre school class and decided to do a little project for them. So I had them make this ornament that I cut from my cameo. It was a bit tough getting 4/5 year olds to fan fold the papers but it did teach them a great deal of patience and waiting as I helped each one. In the end they got to glitter and decorate their ornaments and they loved it. Even the teacher loved it as well. I think she had the most fun doing hers.

My little roses and a little contest..... For a give away

I'm so excited to have finally sat down and made these tiny little flowers. I've been hoarding my wild orchid crafts flowers and now I can finally use them because I know how to make them. I also now understand why they're so expensive as well because they take forever to make. I have a picture below of all the flowers I did plus one wild orchid craft flower. The first person to guess correctly which is the wild orchid craft flower will receive a special little goodie package from me. ;)

Bird cage with the Cameo silhouette

Wanted to share with you a birdcage that I made. I recently got a Cameo and I must tell you I'm In love. I had to send my cricut expression in for replacement because it never cut right. It always ripped my papers or it doesn't cut all the way through. Not to mention all the expensive cartridges you have to buy. So I decided to sell all my cartridges. And bought my cameo. I'm so glad I did because now I'm able to make creations like this. I will definitely be making more 3D objects to alter.

I used my favorite paper on here from the Prima tea thyme collection along with some yellow cardstock, I didn't add any distress inks but did add some gesso to it for texture. I added some lace as the bottom to cover up the layering of the birdcage. I still have to add a bird but for now I'm happy with it. Thanks for looking.

Stacked books drawers

I've seen so many of you ladies do this project and I love how simple yet elegant it looks so I had to try. Thanks to Annie(msgradengrove1) for the tutorial. I went with my own measurements but her tutorial was very helpful. I'm not very good with following tutorial step by step so I always tweak it some how. I used the Graphics 45 Ladies diary collection here and I love the colors. Can't go wrong with pink, coral and black. I used a few of doilies from my shop and also I stuck a clay cherub which I adore that my friend Nouel sent me. I also added some hand made flowers that I did along with WOC flowers. The best part is this has hidden drawers for goodies. I think i will stick my pictures that haven't been put in albums in there. Thanks for looking ;)
