I created this blog to have a place to share some of my crafting creations. It is a work in progress that I will add to as I complete new projects. Comments welcome!

Green Goulash Swap

I decided to add a few of the LOs I did for TMarie's swap that was earlier this fall. It was a challenge for me to do these without any pictures but I was quite happy with the way they turned out.

Another Sneak Peek--Christmas/Holiday Tags

I was in a Christmas/Holiday tag swap hosted by Caitlynsmommy aka Crystal. I participated in eight groups--several of my tags are pictured below. Some of the pics are before I glued them down when I was getting an opinion from JeanP.  Some had additional elements added but I never took pictures of the finished tags. The ones that follow from top to bottom are child's tag, two for green, red and white, other than Christmas [I chose birthday] and  blue, silver and white.

Decorative Tile

Here is a tile I made using a picture printed on tissue paper.  I added the date after the modpodge was dry.

This one is meant to be decorative but with several coats of modpodge or a spray sealer, it could be used as a coaster but the absorbtion properties of the tile would be lost. Here is the link to the directions:


I did find out that it worked better to cut the tissue paper smaller then the full size of the cardstock I was using to put through the printer and tape it securely on all sides.  I left it attached to the cardstock to trim it as well.

Sneak Preview of an ATC for the Mix and Match Swap

I mixed weather with an advertising slogan, "When it rains it pours!"
I printed two for each ATC and carefully cut out the little girl with her umbrella
and stuck her on with pop dots.
