I had so much fun making this CD Calendar. I picked it up at Michaels for 10 cents and covered the top portion with paper from a Basic Grey retired collection, Lily Kate. Then I cut images from A Child's Year cricut cartridge. I stickeled the images to give them a little sparkle.
I made a set of cards for a friend this week. I used A Child's Year cricut cartridge for the dress form and dress on the card. The card was cut from Just Because Cards cricut cartridge. This project was fun because I learned some new features on my cricut Gypsy. woo hoo
I've been taking art classes at Barnes Hospital/Siteman Cancer Center. The classes are open for any of the Sitemas Cancer Center patients and cancer survivors. I had cancer when I was 16 and a recurrence at 36. I've been cancer free for several years now. The teacher is a Professor at Washington U and she donates her time. Vickie has been doing these classes for approximately 6 years. I just love them and have learned so much. Today she had us make a color palette by mixing colors, we used acrylic paint on canvas. I just love learning how to draw and work with different mediums.
Hi everyone. I've had so much fun crafting this week. First off I want to share a butterfly embellishment I made. My inspiration came from the InkStainedwithLori.blogspot.com. Her blog is amazing. I took 22 gauge wire and formed my butterfly then flattened it and put it on a sheet of music and filled it in with glossy accents. You can use UTEE but I wanted to do it quick and easy. LOL Going for the instant gratification. LOL This is how it turned out.
I was at Michael's over the weekend and learned how to make a ring with beads. Hope you like my version. They are fun to make. You just slide the bead on the wire and twist then add another bead. I used 9 total beads on my ring. Then after all the beads are on you size the ring on your finger and wrap the wire around and twist it. It's just a fun chunky ring.
I was in a charm swap on the Provo Craft Message Board. My charm is on the far left. The rest of the charms are from the people in my group. I mixed up the charms so I don't know who did who but here is a list of the people in my swap group. I think everyone did a great job. There were a few people that had never made them before. I think they did pretty good.

Last night I tried making fabric twisted flowers for the first time. I made hair barrettes with them. My Beacon Adhesive fabric glue was dried up so I used E6000. The E6000 glue is awesome, I recommend it for a lot of different craft projects. I made button barrettes with E6000 and the buttons feel like they are cemented on the barrettes.
Every month I get together with my craft group at Barnes and Noble. We put together a shoebox project for everyone to make. This months theme was acetate. I went to the Teacher's Recycle Store and found picture frame bases. I just covered the picture frame and cut the back out with a craft knife. My friend Dianna has the Sixxix flower die and she let me cut enough for the group. I used acetate to cover the window.
I want to share my love of paper crafting. I grew up in a very creative environment. My mother had my sister and I crafting as little kids. My love for it stayed with me as well as fond memories.
I have 2 Airedale Terriers , Otto and Emma. They are like my children. Yes I'm one of those people. LOL
