Creative Baking?


Does baking count as a creative endeavor? I think so! 

I haven't been doing any paper crafting lately. 

I am currently in my sketching phase and really enjoying drawing/painting on my iPad with Procreate.

Happy New Year

 I am in a weird place. Don't feel like doing any art. And at the same time- I want to. maybe I need a break.  I am drawing a lot on procreate and old school- using a BIC 4-color ball point pen. When I was a kid I COVETED having one of these 4 color pens. The height of technology in my era. Which makes me old for sure.  

Speaking of old...I am soon to turn 65. yikes. Medicare here I come. How did this happen? It all goes too fast. 

Happy New Year. ANYTHING will be better than 2020.

Christmas Decoration using Anna Griffin die


I love this die from Anna Griffin- its called the Rocker Die.  I love it because it is so versatile. 
I made these table decorations. They also fold flat for mailing as a card. How cool is that?  When I am in a fancy mood, I turn to my Anna card stash and dies. Opulent and over the top!  

Happy Crafting!

Explosion card thingy

 A friend of mine made one of these and added watercolor paper for a very unique art journal. I decided to make one as an add on to a book I am making.  I love it! I used old paper for the background and digital images from various sources. Very pleased with the finished product. I will use a small clip to add it to a page of a home made book. 

Happy Crafting!

Faux postage


Using real used stamps and small pieces of ephemera I created lots of faux postage. I will use to tuck into journals and cards and books. I feel like I am channeling Nick Bantock.

another junk journal- already sold


Unicorns is the theme of my latest junk journal. A woman bought this for her granddaughter. How sweet. She told me her granddaughter loves unicorns so I added lots of them. The faux stamp is my favorite. I learned how to make them over at Roxy Creations on you tube. check it out for some stamping and ephemera fun! 

Happy creating!

new junk journal - already sold.

 This is a commission piece. The person is going to use it to write about her trip to Scotland. What a lovely idea.  She gave me some places to highlight- the image with the owl- that is a paper listing what a student needs to enter Hogwarts.  Harry Potter was written in Edinburgh Scotland.  I had a lot of fun making this one.
