Crepe Paper Icelandic Poppy Flower Class

I am finally back with another crafty project!  I meant to do this post awhile ago, but life got in the way. But better late than never, right?  Anyway, about two and a half weeks ago, I took another of Lynn Dolan‘s crepe paper flower classes at Castle in the Air.  This time it was […]

Alcohol Inks Acrylic Board Book Class

I know what you’re wondering.  Where have I been?  I have been busy with life and taking a break from creating.  Just wasn’t really feeling it until the last several weeks.  Nothing really new to show, as I have been working on crepe paper peonies for friends.  I did take a class at Castle in […]

Fresh Apple Bundt Cake

I know I have been lax about posting recipes lately.  (I think the last time I posted a recipe was late last year).  But I have not done a whole lot of baking since the holidays.  However, that changed last weekend, as it was both my mom’s and brother, Daniel’s birthdays.  Well, technically, my mom’s birthday […]

Hummingbird ATC Card – a Craft Fail of Sorts

Well, my ATC journey continues with a semi craft fail.  My plan was to create an ATC with this image of a hummingbird I had saved in my stash. This was originally from an envelope I had gotten in the mail for a wildlife organization.  I didn’t know what I was going to do with […]

Singing Cat Maestro ATC Card

One of the challenges with designing an ATC card is coming up with a design for such a small canvas. I’ve started out all my ATCs thus far with an image that I found interesting, whether a person or animal, and wanted to build a card around it.  But for this cat maestro ATC, I started with […]

Bird Napkin ATC Cards

One nice thing about doing ATC cards is that I get to experiment on a less intimidating, smaller scale than I would be if working in another medium.  Case in point – my recent foray into working with paper napkins. I have had these Punch Studio paper napkins for quite a number of years now: I […]
