Coffee Coasters

I had some ceramic tiles left from a few projects so I thought I would make a few coffee coasters with them using my Donna Downey stamps and some Archival Ink.  I really like them!

A Texas Wedding

I was tasked with place cards for a Texas wedding rehearsal dinner.  I bought some state die cuts and got to work.  It was fun and everyone loved their little reminders of a good time in Texas.  I also made a cute banner to go along with the Texas theme but tried to make it more cute than western.

I used my sizzix to cut and create the flowers and letters for the names.  I used my Cameo Silhouette to cut out the Texas shape. 
I hand cut the burlap and used little grommets to keep the punched circles for the ribbon from fraying.

I probably should have had the restaurant hang the banner behind them so it wouldn't be covered up by people at the bar.

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.
