What's happening everybody?!

So here we are - already going forward with the third week of the new year and where I'm located - it's freezing!  I know...I know...50 degrees is tropical to some but you have to remember on the west coast, we have to travel far to get to the mountain to see snow.   Now, here's this week's creative craft:

These are index cards made for a swap I'm in with my friend Audrey.  Typically, if you search Pinterest, you will see that crafters use sprays and other mixed media to make the index cards.  Well, I don't like that stuff on my hands, so I do the "dry" creative aspect to Index Cards.  They each still can tell a cool story with a paper background.

Happy Crafting!

Simply Sunday...

Hey there peeps!

It's already been a week into the new year - we have rain and I hear it's storming in other parts.  So stay safe and warm, everyone.  Here's what I've been up to:

This was made for my friend, Audrey, for our ATC swap we did last year.  Now, we will be doing an index card challenge each month, so stay tuned.

Happy New Year! 2017 - Woot! Woot!

Hello, hello, hello...

Yikes...another month

Howdy peeps!

Where does the time go?? I've been busy crafting...what about you...I know...I need to go check you out...

This is one of the many pocket letter pals I made, swapping with others and sending to friends.  This one is "Tilda" focused - the front above.

The back, according to the originator, Janette Lane, is to be filled with goodies.  My Sissy, Nancy Martinez, loved this.

To see more, check out my channel on You Tube.

Thanks for stopping to see what you're up to.

Happy Crafting!

Mason Jars

Hey y'all,

Can you believe I missed the whole month of April? I am so busy doing the You Tube thing that I miss out on blogging.  But no worries, I'll catch up to what you all are doing soon.  But I want to share some embellishments I made earlier this year - these are actual tags that I have put on gifts that I send people.

As you can see, these all have fabric as the base and I added flowers, ribbon and lace to complete the look.  I've made smaller embellishments for two swaps I'm in - will show those later.

Thanks for stopping by.  Happy Crafting!

Good morning y'all,

I love to learn new things and sometimes in crafting, I end up doing what I like and forget to venture off into new horizons.  Well, there was a swap over at YPP and I joined it.  Here's what I made:

The more I 'tangle', the more ideas I get on how to form them.  It actually relaxes you because it removes the clutter from your mind so that you can "tangle".  Love this!

Thanks for stopping by! Happy Crafting!

Ribbon Book Marks

Hey peeps,

It's been awhile...but I haven't forgotten you - I will make a round of blogs today and see what you've been up to.  I hope you all have been doing your crafty thing with gusto.  I have - here's the latest:

This is a mini note card from a swap at Your Paper Pantry.  We make 5 and get back 5 different ones.  It's a really cool swap idea.

Alright, I'm keeping it short and sweet today.  Have a groovy weekend.

~Happy Crafting!
