Welcome to my blog-I hope you enjoy!


Christmas Tag Swap with Artchix Sister-Site with Sallie Rodman as our host. Tags are always fun to create with so lots of fun here.

Christmas Stocking

"Art For The Creative Mind" stocking swap. We were to amke a stcking between 6" to 8" and fill it with handmade goodies. Well here is my stocking, I have to keep the goodies a secret until my partner receives it. Sure hope she likes the goodies.

ATC Ornaments

Artchix Sister-site ATC ornaments swap. Lisa Robinson is our host for this swap. I love Christmas so I loved making the ornaments.


Here is my little snowman made with a shot gun shell. We have a lot of hunters here in Palatka. (even if I don't like hunting-love the animals to much) so I thought it would make a cute gift for the ladies for their husbands who hunt.


The brass is from the shells of bullets. I drilled holes and added the beads. More items for our Holiday House.


This necklace is made with the shells of bullets. I added the beads to the shells and it turned out fairly well. What so you think?


Our Lady's Garden Club has an auction every year to raise money for their club. A couple of years ago I went with my daughter and I made abid on a box of miss matched wine glass. For $5.00 I received around 15 glasses, all beautiful and none of them matched. I like the look when I serve wine and we have different glasses, but I also had these birds for a while and wanted to do something with them.
So, I made some paper nest and added some ribbon and stars. I think they will look pretty sitting around for Christmas.
I also had some miss match punch glasses so I made paper nest in them also. Most of these I made to hang on the tree.
I sure hope every one at the Holiday House like them. I might just save one for me.


Another necklace for the Holiday House. I have 4 more days to finish my items. On Wednesday we start setting up. It is a lovely Victorian House that our Art League has and we decorate it for the Holidays. It always look beautiful when we are done. Every one has wonderful items they have created for the sale. I hope we all sale everything we have. (a little wishful thinking but I sure hope we do)


I used vintage post cards for this. I thought it could be used as a jewelry box or a chest to keep writing material together.

The top part is large enough to hold note cards, envelopes and stamps and the lower drawer could hold stationery, envelopes and pens for writing. Or the compartments could hold wax for the use of you seal.
