Journaling and Jamming!

I love these rich tones! Altering/Painting with Ranger Distress Paints is so easy and enjoyable! I highly recommend you pick up a pack and go to town! They are super easy to use just squeeze, dab and smear! The applicator is perfect and you can’t mess up! And if you mess up….it’s just a part if the creative process, some mess ups turn into the best things!

These will hopefully be finished by the end of the week and in the shop next week!

Right now,  I have just a few styles left, so in the mean time I’ll be jamming away in my Zen zone creating more things for you! HOPE you enjoy this snip it video!

Can I just say how fun and what a pleasant surprise it is when someone is kind enough to share something you made and pinned!!!!

I’M still learning the ropes around Pinterest! My Goodness! I know how to Pin, but to combine Pinning and Marketing…. ummmm, I still need to work in that arena.  Everything is a “day at a time” right?!

I hope you will follow along on my  business ventures!

Maybe I will have something in my shop that you will like or I can custom make something for you?

My shop is slowly getting more stocked and I only say “slowly” because I sold 2 sets of greeting cards, a paper heart and recently a Steampunk frame, so my quantity has dropped, but sales are up sooooo Hooray!!!! This is good and yes, I am giving myself a “shout out”! And wanted to share my good news with you!  😘👍👊

If you are on Pinterest I would also love to connect with You!

How about you? Do you love to read?  Do you love the library? Do you love Barnes and Noble? Or the “shop around the corner”?

I couldn’t resist adding this, “You’ve Got Mail” is one of my All Time Favorite Movies too!
I love all bookstores, but I especially love the quaint little bookshops!

Coming Soon

image

Still in the process of stocking the shop. It will be an eclectic array of handcrafted pieces all made with love! I like to take my time as if each piece was being made for my friends and family, no detail goes unnoticed.  If you like “one of a kind” and unique styles this shop may be right up your alley. I specialize in mixed media art,  there will be cards, frames, tags, altered books, altered records and other paper crafts.

The shop opens on Friday, the 13th! I think that’s a lucky day and I also think Black Cats are lucky! Here’s my Frankie Cat!

We hope you stop by the shop!

Fall Changes, Sun Still Shines

Autumn Splendor
“I walked on paths of crisp, dry leaves after, that flamed with color and crackled with laughter ” – Unknown

This is a layout I made to remind me that Fall is another season, these season all come and go so quickly, the sun is still shining and on the days I can see it, I will get out in nature and soak it up! On the days I don’t see it, get out in nature and love it for what it!

          Just embrace the day period.
