I know this is old news, but I wanted to show my extended Alice tag book originally from Karla's Cottage. I now have 13 tags in this book, but some of the tags are hidden in there. I was so excited about it that I enlisted some of the people involved to do some more tags to swap with me. I made six more, sent out some and kept some for myself. I was so lucky to get to know more amazing paper crafters.
I got these beautiful fun tags from Kimberly Laws artjoystuff.blogspot.com She is amazing with her paper crafts and everyone should check out her blog and Etsy shop.
I recieved these amazingly beautiful artsy tags from Ruth at throughmygardensgate.blogspot.com Check out her blog too. She is an amazing artist as well. I feel very priveleged to have a bit of art work from both these ladies.
Soon to be announced new giveaway here, in honor of a new grandson. As soon as he arrives and I am back home I will be having a 'Blue welcome Maddox giveaway.' So be watching for it. My daughter is due any time now!
I love Impressionism. Especially from the 1800's. This has always been one of my favorites and I had a little print of it. I jade a little wall decor for my creative place. The tiles which spell out my name are from Laurie Jackson. "Indulge your shelf"
Those are microbeads. It is one of my favorite embellishments.
Summer is fast approaching, especially where I live. It feels like summer to most people out there. It is already up in the low 90's. So I needed to do another paper decoration for my sweet little sterling silver easel.
I love this little silver easel so much I just keep making new decorations to sit on it. I am crazy about butterflies lately. I am not sure why, though. I was never into them before. This sure evokes the felling of summer.
I am a Mother of 8, grandmother of almost 27 wonderful little people. Married to a wonderful man for 38 years. I am a published scrapbooker, have decorated wedding cakes, made wedding dresses, had a wedding business, taught baton twirling lessons to girls for almost 40 years, and love to decorate my home inexpensively. I have always been a 'make-due' sort of person. I love dishes, teacups, teapots, and have to be creating something everyday. I love to listen to beautiful uplifting music and watch Masterpiece Theatre and Jane Austen movies while I scrap, craft or sew. I have become addicted to quilting, and dream about quilt blocks now. I am still working on getting better at this art form. I believe that Creating things with your hands is a good outlet and keeps your mind alert, and has a way of helping one lose all the cares of the day and world, right in my own little studio. Therefore I will never become a digital scrapbooker. I think that those who do digital turn out some beautiful pieces of art and lovely layouts, but for me I need to cut and paste by hand!
