Introducing My Etsy Shop (finally)

Whew, I thought things would slow down after the holidays, but I have been as busy as ever. For now I will post the newest item added to my Etsy shop. I opened my Etsy shop in April of last year and never really officially launched it. I’ve been waiting for the perfect time andContinue reading “Introducing My Etsy Shop (finally)”

One Man’s Trash…

It is true, one man’s trash is another man’s treasure. In this case though, it took a bit of work to turn actual trash into a little treasure. I hosted a baby shower last month and the very last hour before guests arrived, I had a brilliant idea to quickly make a guest book. NeedlessContinue reading “One Man’s Trash…”

Oh, So Raven

As usual, once October approaches, November and December come full speed at me. Here it is the end of November and not a post has been posted… I have very exciting news to share. Well, two bits of exciting news, but I’m waiting to share until most the details have been worked out. In theContinue reading “Oh, So Raven”

An End to Summertime Blues

Oh NO, It’s mid September and I haven’t posted a thing! What will my beloved fans think? (note the sarcasm) It’s been a busy month; I’ve been attending conferences, classes, meetings, hustling to build inventory for craft shows, done a couple of craft shows, now I’m planning a baby shower, preparing for out-of-town visitors notContinue reading “An End to Summertime Blues”

Hoo’s That Peeking at Me?

This little table called out to me the other day as I wondered around a garage sale. I thought I could add it to my collection of “ugly furniture to makeover someday”. Yes, it has seen better days, and I’m positive it smelled better in its youth as well. It also needed a few repairs.Continue reading “Hoo’s That Peeking at Me?”

A Bunch of Stuff and a New Tin…

What can I say? I’m completely uncreative when it comes to writing titles. I should be posting about the Craft Fair I did earlier in the month. ┬áTruth is, it was a little uneventful. And I mean that in the most positive way. Everything went smoothly from set up to tear down. Aside from ourContinue reading “A Bunch of Stuff and a New Tin…”

Another Altoids Tin

I was on an altered Altoids tin kick for a while, ┬ábut somehow I got a little side tracked with other projects (not necessarily a bad thing) and I haven’t completed one since I did the first one back in September. The other day I decided to finish this tin I started a few weeksContinue reading “Another Altoids Tin”

Altoids Tin Birthday Card

I recently chatted with a friend I haven’t talked to in several years. We used to scrapbook together, in fact I introduced her to that whole scene. While she’s still an active scrapbooker, I have since focused my interests elsewhere (though rather sporadically).  I told her I  miss scrapbooking but haven’t been very motivated toContinue reading “Altoids Tin Birthday Card”
