Here's a few pics of an art canvas I recently created...totally free-form design...started out as just a few abstract designs for the background, but didn't like the finished version---so, I decided to add some #8 tags...I used Lindy's Stamp Gang products for the background...Mystic Malachite and Tiffany's Blue. Most of the hardware comes from belts..yes..Belts! Thanks for stopping by!

My Jazzy Mini Album Tribute to Billie Holiday

I finally finished my mini..or shall I say...my MEGA mini paper bag album. Thanks to the creative inspirations from Kathy @ paperphenomenon.blogspot.com...Please go check her out..She did 8-9 you tube videos showing how to create this paper bag mini...AMAZING! Thanks Kathy! I believe she used Tim Holtz paper in her album. For my mini album, I used Curtain Call paper by Graphic 45...also used pieces from DCWV...G45 never ceases to amaze me..When I first saw this paper, I knew I would create a mini with pictures of my all time favorite jazz singer, Billie Holiday. I'm planning to include some pictures of me going out to jazz concerts as well! .I totally loved working on this project...I even used items from my thrift store haul..pieces from belts, buckles and earrings...What I great way to save some money on embellishments. Thanks for stopping by..SMOOCHES!

Finally Reorganized Craft Room!

Well! What in the world was I thinking? Seriously..I thought I was going to be able to paint, rearrange furniture, and organize my scrap supplies during the Christmas holidays...NOT! It took me two days just to paint.. almost two weeks just to sift through, purge and organize my supplies....I am happy to report that while it was a trying task, the job is complete. Here are pictures of my completed craft space!
