Candy!?! I think? lol

posted in: Creativity | 8

I am still learning the crafters lingo guys so please bare with me if I muck it up at times ^_~ Today’s post is a goodie give-a-way except it’s my favorite kind – the kind where everyone gets the candy! Also did you know you can use digi stamps in the Silhouette Cameo machine? I didn’t even know the machine existed. I don’t actually own a cutting machine myself (maybe one day!) but my friends Malisa and Tabbetha use the … Read More

My first challenge yay =)

posted in: News | 8

I love music. I think I spend nearly 95% of my available time listening to music. So when I saw Paula post about a challenge based on Song Inspiration I knew I was gonna do it! ^_^ So I headed over to the Saturated Canary Challenge Blog to see what’s what. Once I saw that it basically had to be a Saturated Canary stamp I knew just what I was going to do ^_^ I’ve only purchased a few stamps. … Read More

My Faery Art Mother & Celebrating the Journey

posted in: Creativity | 4

Art journaling, card making and creating cute digital stamps are my three newest passions. I never realized how I had pigeon-holed myself into web graphics. Don’t get me wrong – I still love designing websites and the beautiful graphics to decorate them. But there is something so liberating about being able to hold a colorful piece of artwork that you created between your fingers, in your hands. About mid-way through 2012 I decided I would start working on “tangible” art … Read More

Color Theory Part 1 The Color Wheel

posted in: DIY | 3

I thought I would do a few blogs about color theory. Specifically the RYB additive color model which is what we use most often when we create art. I’m sure you already know a little bit about it from grade school lessons about the color wheel but I thought I might offer a little more in-depth information that you might find useful when creating your arts and crafts. To start, let’s get a little color theory vocabulary out of the … Read More

Ahh New Years Resolutions…

posted in: Creativity | 5

My New Year’s resolutions are pretty much the same every single year: eat better, exercise more, spend more quality time with my babies, always act in kindness  Each year I look back and see progress made in most of these areas. Some areas more than others. This year is no different except I want to add a couple new resolutions: give creativity a higher priority in my life and find my way back to spirit again. You know, I am surprised … Read More

My first handmade cards!

posted in: Creativity | 10

Paula warned me that this would be addictive and she was not kidding! Oh my gosh. I made my first one (the brown and pink below) and made a few silly mistakes. One, I had glue everywhere!! Geez that stuff is no joke lol. I also used Tacky Glue in areas where Tacky Glue should go nowhere near (hence the white dots in my button holes ha). Then, after nearly finishing my colors on the adorable little couple there I … Read More
