and more .........

Besides making ornaments I have been making ATCs (artist trading cards). It's not a new thing, its been around a few years but it is new to me. I was surfing the web like I usually do, and I came across this form of art and it spiked my interest to where I did some research and the more I searched the more intrigued I became. Well you guessed it I had to give it a try and here are my attempts.... (by the way I'm addicted)

More Ornaments!

Been busy making more ornaments. The first show is right around the corner! yikes !!

It's back to work!

Well tonight I head on back to work for 7 days or I should say nights. I work 7 on and 7 off, so not too bad. I must say it's been a very informative week. I got my curiosity up about ATCs so I have been looking online to find everything I possible could find and boy did I learn a lot. I think I'm ready to take the ATCs by the horns and give it a shot.
Then on Cool2Craft they had live demos on how to make dream catchers, felting and decoupage.
My son loves Indian decor so I might have to make him one, Cyn made it look so easy. Liza showed us how to do felting. I never knew you could use regular yarn. and last but not least, Heidi, demonstrated on how to make a leaf bowl with brown paper bags and then decoupage it, she used clothesline for the veins in the leaf ..........who knew? Also Candace, the Queen of muse ,ha ha ha, challenged us to make craft that has to do with a crown? Now that's got me thinking lol. Awesome job everybody!
I finally got my pictures of my ornaments posted to my blog and belonging to The Hive my blog transfers over to there ( how cool is that)? Then the exciting part about that, my blog was feature for the day woooooohooooooo!!! Loving it!
So all in all its been fun! The next week I'm off I need to stay off here and get my nose to the grind stone and make more ornaments and start making some ATCs. I already committed myself to a swap so there is no turning back.................oh my what pressure, LOL, So until next time, take care and be safe.

Hi everyone, it's been forever since I last posted. But as you will see I have been very busy making my ornaments for the craft shows. There are 25 different ones so far, more are in the works. I make 6 of each ornament, I don't know why I picked the magic number of 6 but, it is what it is. So give a gander and leave your comments. I would like to know your thoughts and opinions. Thanks, till next time, live, laugh, and safe!


last but not least......

Finally Finished

HAPPY NEW YEAR everybody!! I've been busy trying to get this quilt done and it's done finally! It only took 15 years, yep that's right 15 yrs. It was packed away with a lot of my other WIPs so I decided this is the year it will get done. The pattern is called "The Painted Hearts" I got it out of a magazine. The hearts were to be stenciled on but I appliqued them and zigzag stitched around them. I machine pieced and hand quilted. Now I can move on to my other projects and of course my ornaments. Oh by the way, this quilt has been to WVa., Ohio, Virginia, and back to Ohio, and on my bed where its going to stay. Till next time, LIVE LOVE and LAUGH.
