Welcome to my blog-I hope you enjoy!

"Fragments Of The Past"

 Art For The Creative Mind is having a cigar box swap.  Theme is "Fragments From The Past" 
It was so much fun going though all my vintage junk or treasures and to fill the box. I used Graphic 45 papers  to line the box and to make the dividers.  I choose to leave the box as is-the cigar box images where just to fantastic too cover.

"Dorothy Where Are You?"

 Theme for book shadow box swap was "Dorothy Where Are You"  (Art For The Creative Mind)  I used an old French Dictionary.  I glued the out side pages and clovers together and cut though them. (I saved the pages for other projects)  I then glued the pages together on the in side.  Then just had fun embellishing.
Another fun swap "Art For The Creative Mind"

4 by 4 inch quilts

Art For The Creative Mind had a 4 by 4 inch quilt swap.  I did not join in on the swap, I did not think I would be able to fine the time.  When I did I did a couple of them up.  It was something a little different I enjoyed doing them.

"Art Speaks In Volumes" Round Robin

 This is T.J.'s book-her theme "Strong Powerful and Influential Women".  There are so many-so I kind of went though history and pick a few.  Great theme!

Art Dolls Class

Paper Whimsy offer this art doll class with Laura Roberts.  They were so much fun and Laura give the best directions-so easy to follow. Fun fun fun

Isn't this a wonderful gift.  Deb Hodge sent this when I join her month club.  I love it and have it in my guest bedroom.  It looks great with all my vintage items I have collected.  Thanks Deb you are the best.

 This is Nancy's book.  Her theme is "Jewells Of The Orient".  I love doing these pages so much fun!

More Hand Made Beads

These are from "Creative Lenna's bead swap. Some are made from paper, material, embossed and more ideas. I made the necklace and think it is delightful. I will be wearing it often. Thanks so much to the clever artist that created them, and a special thanks to Lenna for hosting. Fun, fun ,fun.

Hand Made Paper Beads

"Art For The Creative Mind" had a paper bead swap. Aren't all the bead to wonderful. I added bead caps to the end of the beads to give them the look of belonging together-even with each bead being totally different. I love this necklace and will enjoy showing it off. Thanks TG for a fantastic swap.

Vintage Bottles

Had fun decorating these bottles. They are filled with little treasures.


Here is my crown. Swoon With Deb Hodge Feb kit. The pillow is a large 2 feet square-added the hearts on the corners. The crown fits me and has wonderful rhinestones we added after aging the brass. I also ages the brass on the rhinestones.
