Wedding workings..

Even though I haven’t been posting, I have been busy this summer.  It started with making wedding invitations for my soon to be sister in law.  She’s getting married next month and so as soon I knew I was making them I got busy with designing something I thought would be perfect for the happy couple, the finished product made both of them very happy!


Cutting the layers and printing and folding and assembling was a total act of love!  It reinforced the reason why I never ever mass produce anything!

The next project for her was a wooden sign that she saw and fell in love with.  It required me learning all over again how to use my Pazzles!


Learning to work with vinyl was interesting and oh, it’s kind of addictive too!  I am thinking of all kinds of things that I want to make now!

The next item is a two part project, but I can’t show you that yet as the bride herself hasn’t seen it!  I will say that it’s a really neat guest book and my husband made it.  My part was this sign and it’s going in a really lovely frame, but she hasn’t seen that either.


So while it seemed like I was quiet, I was busy crafting away.

What’s on My Workdesk #296

Until precisely 5 minutes ago, there was nothing there at all!  However in my frustration for not being able to find what I want, I decided to get creative and make it!


So what you see is the gathering of supplies for my attempt at making my own votive holders from various glass jars and bowls.  I’m going to test to see what adheres to the glass best and then have a go!  I’ve been looking for a while now and everything is just so not like me or my taste.  So DIY here I come.

Now off you go to see Julia and her always fabulous desk at the Stamping Ground!

Red Scraps

I’ve gotten much better at tossing those little bits and pieces of paper that have a tendency to pile up when you aren’t looking.  The ones that I do save I make a point of turning into something, either a card or a layer, but something instead of just letting them sit.  This Valentine was made from the red scrap pile, not that I needed any Valentine cards but it just seemed like it was meant to be one!

What’s On Your Workdesk #293

Well that’s a sad sight now isn’t it, not much of anything going on there.  Off to the far right two cards that have images that need to be colored.  Two completed cards from scraps, my portable hard drive and a piece of another card started.  It’s a lot of blah but that’s my desk as of today. 
My 13 year old dog, Zoe hasn’t been all too perky and so I’ve spent a lot of time in the lower level of the house keeping a watchful eye on her.  Today however she decided to head up with me…
Up onto the futon she climbed and promptly started to doze off.  At least she is here and I can multitask watching her and doing something creative for a bit!
So off you go to find something exciting over at the Stamping Ground!

What’s on Your Workdesk #292

Helloo crafty deskers!


This picture was taken late Tuesday afternoon because I knew once my husband got home I wouldn’t have time to get back into my room!  Let’s see the super specs are buried under some paper, I had to stitch up Cooper’s T-Rex earlier in the day and the black thread against the black head was giving me fits!  An almost finished anniversary card, my nippled glue is hidden there behind it.  So far by the way I LOVE it!  Paper cutter and bits of paper here and there.  That handsome devil on the screen is Cooper in all his glory playing posing in the first decent snow of the season.   Out the window you can get a little glimpse of the snow covered woods.  The pictures was taken with my new prime camera lens I love how it makes things in the distance all fuzzy, makes things seem a little softer..

All but I digress, so before I wax on head over to see Julia at the Stamping Ground and catch up on more crafty fun!
