My First Journal

I have always wanted to try my hand at journal ling. I found a video for making a Journal using a cereal box for the cover. I like to recycle, so I decided to give this a try. Here is my first attempt. I had so much fun making the pages that I am sure I am hooked.

House Mouse challenge

Again, I must apologize for not being more active on this blog. Life has thrown me a few curves lately and my attention has been drawn elsewhere. That does not mean that I have been idle., Just that I keep running out of time to post my creations.. This card was a challenge where we were given an envelop[e with supplies and an image to make a card with this is my creation.

I had promised to be more regular after being away when my new grandson arrived. Unfortunately, my partner of 12 years had a massive heart attack just after my last post. He is recovering nicely and I hope to be posting new and exciting items on a regular basis. At this time I wanted to share an Easter challenge I am hosting on This is being held on the Graphics45Fans forum. Here is a picture of my creation.

Baby Is Here

At long last, I have found some time to get back to my blog. A lot has happened while I have been absent, but most of all my grandson arrived on Feb. 13th at a healthy 8 lbs. 2.4 oz. He has been christened Paul Sawyer. I have put together this little accordion album for him and his Mom to have. here it is.

Faux Leather Tags

I have been playing around with some faux leather techniques  and wanted to share these two. The first was made using masking tape and the second with glycerine.

Creature Comfort

After being absent for many weeks, I have found some energy to craft. Today I made this card for a swap called Creature Comfort. Wish I could be this comfortable in bed, but the crumbs scratch my back. LOL

This bottom card is for Take your pet for a walk.I used a die cut for the dog and a stamped image for the women.

He made his entrance into our world on Feb. 13 weighing in at 8 lbs 2.3 ounces.  His name is Paul sawyer and we are thrilled with him. I immediately went to work making this little accordion album for him and his mom.

Back from the Holidays

I hope everyone had a great holiday season. Like many of us, mine was extremely busy. Not only was a preparing and making gifts for my family, I was also making items for my daughters expected baby. I soon will be leaving home to join her in Oregon for this very awaited birth. I made her this gown to wear and thought I would share it here on my blog. I smocked this in smocking fleece, so it will be very warm and cozy to wear.
