Bakers Rack Makeover

An old green bakers rack from the 70's. The goal is to repainted it, add a few new shelf inserts and maybe do something with the bottom shelf so I can use it as an ice container for drinks. Got a little start but the rain has slowed the progress. Hopefully, I'll get it finished when there are two weekends without rain.

Polished Stone Technique

Here is one of the cards I made with a favorite technique called Polished Stone.   You will need some glossy cardstock, alcohol reinkers, metallic pigment reinkers, alcohol, cotton balls, and rubber gloves if you don't like getting messy.

Valentine's Day Crafting

Got together with a few friends to do a little card making and heart boxes.  I used some free tags from Kelli Murray's blog.  I also used my sizzix die cutter to make some cute little boxes.  On the boxes I added some punched hearts.  The box size was perfect to include two Giradeli chocolate squares.   The cute little girl on the card is from Artful Play that I purchased on Etsy.  Too cute!

Craftcation 2018

April in Ventura is one big craft fest. I volunteered in the business classes and was able to get in a few craft classes.

These are the terrariums we made.  Mine is the top photo and my friend Kathi's is the one with the pretty blue glass rocks.

This year is just about halfway over and I need to focus on what it is I want to do with my art.  I definitely would like to keep up this blog, however Instagram is so much quicker and easier to share what I am making.  I would also like to open my etsy shop which to date only has my name. First I will have to make labels for the back of my cards, package them and sort them, and then of course list them.
