St Patrick's Day

Hello Everyone!  It's been awhile since my last post.  I know it is the day after St Patrick's Day but I just wanted to share this cute wood kit that I painted up for the holiday.  I bought it at a local store and while doing so I thought "I can design this stuff".  I have so many, many designs I have created and have done nothing with them.  Well, that is about to change!  Starting now, before Easter, as in next week I am going to take one of my darling Easter designs that I have drawn and make it into an Easter Wood Kit.  So, that is official!  I have made this commitment.  Be sure to check back next week when it is up on the blog and ready for you to order.  Until then, here is this adorable St Patrick's Day kit.  Top of the Morning to You!

I have much planned for my Etsy shop in the coming years.  I have loved to draw since I was very young.  I have many whimsical drawings that I want to share with the world.  These will be offered as digital stamps, cards, in digital scrapbook kits.  I also have digital artwork that I have created for digital downloads.  They will also be available in the near future.

Tissue Paper Rosettes

I love playing with paper!  I can admit that I am a paper collector.  I love all kinds of paper and love having it "in stock" in my craft supplies.  I love making homemade cards.  They are so much more fun to give than the ones found in the store.  I do have a few in my Etsy store right now and plan on making many more.  That's why I chose this tutorial.  I wanted to learn how to make these to use on some homemade cards.

Thanks to Tjasa at Sprinkle of Cinnamon for this great tutorial!  You can go to her blog at:

Enjoy your day!

Image of Song of Solomon 3:4 - FREE

I recently had surgery on my shoulder and have neglected my blog.  Now that I am fully recovered I am ready to keep up to date with my craft blog and my photography blog.  I have many things in store for those who follow and those who just stop by for a visit.  Check back next week to see 
what I have been up to!

Today I decided to share one of my favorite blogs with you. Dear Lillie always has such unique and fun things.  I discovered that they have some free downloads that you might be interested in.  My youngest daughter is getting married in September so when I saw this quote it made me think of her.  My every day thought is now on the upcoming wedding and I am excited to share photos with you next week on my photography blog.  

If you copy and paste the link below it will take you to their blog.  Once you are on the blog, click on shop and it will take you to their menu.  On the left side scroll down to the Free Downloads and you will find this fun free download as well as others.

I am glad to be feeling better and happy to be blogging again!

Enjoy your day!

DIY Button and Felt Bouquet

I have always wanted to make one of these.  I think they are so pretty!  Thanks to for sharing the instructions for making one of these.  Here is the link to the full tutorial:

Instead of making this as a bouquet, I thought it would be fun to make a few smaller ones for you home without the stem in a color that matches your home decor.

Happy Crafting!
