12 Weeks of Christmas - Week 2

Happy Sunday!!
I hope that everyone has enjoyed their weekend so far. I am on week 2 of the 12 weeks of Christmas series. I have searched all over YouTube for some fun, quick and inexpensive gift ideas for the Holidays. This project idea came from Robin-Marie Smith-Art (her link to the tutorial is in the description box below the video) and is soooooo easy and fun to make. I hope that you enjoy it!

Amber Moon Hard Cover Journal

Happy Sunday!! 
I wanted to do a quick share of a journal I made using the Amber Moon collection. I repurposed an old book for the cover. I also tried my hand at painting on the cover using a matte medium. I really liked how it turned out.

New Journals

HI Everyone!!! 
Thank Goodness it's FRIDAY!! I have a few things to share today. 
First, with all the DEVASTATION that has recently taken place all over our world, PLEASE pray for all those that have been affected by these tragic events. They are going to need all the support they can get as they try and rebuild their lives once again. It breaks my HEART to see so much disaster. 
LASTLY, I will be uploading a video every day this weekend starting this evening with some journals I have been working on in between my custom orders.
Have a WONDERFUL weekend!!

Happy Labor Day!!

First off I want to wish you all a happy and safe Labor Day Weekend!! I look forward to spending the weekend with family and getting in some crafting time.
Seems like I have been MIA the last couple of weeks. Over that time I have become a grandma. Little Oliver was born August 26th at 11:52 am. I couldn't be more thrilled.
I am currently finishing up some of the journals I have been working on and hope to get a video up on these latest projects this Sunday.
