Boo!



I'm starting to get ready and geared up for Halloween. I made this kit for a gift flood I'm involved in. I'm hoping to jump start the recipient with her treats for the kids.

I think it's my favorite holiday...have you ever sat outside in the dark shadows of a warm night and listened? Especially right now. The crickets are in full song and the critters are prowling.

Several years ago...and occasionally even now, I sometimes can't sleep...if it's after 2 AM, I'll venture outside and sit on my porch and just listen. A few times I took a BW film camera and had a field day playing around with night shots...but instead of helping me relax and ready myself for the covers again, it woke me up. I ended up watching the sun rise, making the work day somewhat unpleasant. Which reminds me...it's almost tomorrow here on the east coast and it's not Friday.

Here's a close-up of the card. I'm doing a workshop in October. This is one of the cards we'll be making.



Cheers and...creepy night to all!

Yummy card! Ha ~ who wouldn't want a tasty treat! Love how you made the spider paper ~ I'm all for spiders as long as they stay outside (or on paper)!

Mixed Up Media Chix - Summertime Blog Hop!

I have a fun project to share today!  Very excited about this one.  I've been working on it for over a week and...well...it's still not completely done, but it's getting there!
I've done this for a super wonderful friend that is going through a bit of a rough time.  She needs encouragement, so I'm putting together a little art journal to let her know how special she is.
And while this is a special gift, it's also part of a really fun blog hop I'm participating in with the other Mixed Up Media Chix!   Follow along...You'll truly be inspired.
So, if you need to start at the beginning:
HOP START
Oh, guess what else is going on...
IT'S OFFICIALLY SUMMER.
IT'S MY ANNIVERSARY.
Anyway... Here are a few images of the pages in the journal.





Each page has a little journal page insert: 

This journal was made from lots of recycled stuff, including...wait for it....
Toilet Paper Rolls! (yeah, I know...totally cool, huh?)
Old Book Pages (including those from a h…

Big Birthday Celebration

Are you here having fun hopping along with 3GirlJAM in celebration of Julie's sister's big birthday year?  What a great little cyber party we're having!  (she's really a young thing, but she's having a great year)

Well, if not, you should be hopping along (I'll tell you why in a moment). There are some really wonderful birthday ideas from all of us on the design team...and including Julie's two girls, who are also having fun celebrating their aunt's birthday.

If you need to go back to the beginning, head over to the 3GirlJAM blog to get started.  Otherwise....


Here's my card in celebration her special year! I used blue crinkle ribbon from the newly released Red,White,Blue Bundle.It's such a nice shade of blue!  The white has bits of the red and blue in it (and I love the ribbon when it's like that)...and the red is also pretty awesome...like marachino cherries.  The little button in the center is from Pinque Peacock (love lady bugs!) and e…
