Where have I been….

 My site has been dormant along with my creative life for over two years. At the end of 2013 I had an epiphany. At least that’s what I called it. In reality a birthday ending in “zero” came and I realized that there was one thing I needed to complete my college degree. I’ve been on… Continue reading Where have I been….

A Cricut Gift

There are times that I’ll be watching a You Tube Video and I see that someone uses a Silhouette cut file on their layout. Of course it’s cute and I immediately want it. But I don’t own a Cameo or other Silhouette Machine. I own the Cricut Expression and the Expression 2 and I don’t plan… Continue reading A Cricut Gift

A New Process Video

I decided that I will post 1 new video a week.

There was a time that I snubbed sketches. I felt that it was “copying”. At the time I was concentrating on getting published so I wanted everything to be original. I did get published several times,  but my priorities have changed. It was  about 3 years ago that I decided to use sketches. I was… Continue reading Sketches


Bottle Caps and Flairs

One of the trends that is hot in scrapbooking are flair buttons. Manufacturers may call them different things. October Afternoon calls them Tin Pins. Jenny Bowlin calls them Flatbacks.
