Here are a few projects I just finished & posted to ebay this weekend. I created a couple mini scrapbooks, card & tag using a cool "fashionista" rubber stamp I just bought. I used the new "street Lace" pattern paper by die cuts with a view. I decorated the books with the stamp images and added a handmade beaded charm that is attached with a Tim Holtz memo pin. I just recieved the memo pins in the mail a couple days ago. I bought a package on ebay & now I really wish I had ordered a at least a couple of them. They are definatly one of my new FAVORITE products! My stamp pad is also VERY happy & juicy! I finally got a reinker bottle from Stacy's Scrap Shack last week and I realize now how dead my stamp pad really was! Along with my memo pins I recieved a couple stamp sets. I bought a set of Tim Holtz grungy backgrounds & steampunk collection by seven gypsies. I haven't used them yet but as soon as I do I will post my creations.

So this project is another reason I haven't been able to post to my blog & youtube videos lately. I've been up to my elbows in paint!!!
This mural measures 5x6 feet on canvas. I painted the main portion of the canvas & made a quilted border in a funky black & white skellie fabric & bound the edges with an aqua & green paisley. It has a hanging loop in the back that we are going to run a funky rod through to hang it on the wall. This was a special project for my awesome friend Stacy's store. So if you are ever on the Oregon Coast stop in at Stacy's Scrap Shack in Lincoln City & check it out in person!!! the store is having it's grand reopening on Feb. 5th & an awesome crop at the casino on March 5th. I will be there scrapbooking my heart out for the day. I can't wait to get away & play at the coast :)

new computer :)

aaaaawwwwwwwwwwwww................finally........a new computer & internet again!!!
I have been without it for 21/2 months & I've been going crazy! We bought a new laptop for Christmas & just got internet hooked up the other day. Oh how I've missed it!
Christmas was so much fun with the kids. We had a fun Christmas party at my sister's house on Christmas Eve. My parents, brother & sisters & their spouses & kids were all there. We had a yummy dinner together & the kids had a blast exchanging gifts with cousins. We had all the yummy treats & desserts that you MUST have during the holidays & wrapping paper shredded all over the floor. Just like it should be :)
We had Christmas day at home with the kids. They woke us up early, of course, and we did gifts, had pancakes & sausage for breakfast & hubbie & I passed out for a much needed nap! Spend the new year at my sister's house for projects & crafting. It was a lot of fun. We don't get to spend as much time together these days so it was a nice break & had a blast laughing until I cried. Just like when we were little kids. I'm sure when we are 80 years old we will still be cracking up together!
So I've made a bunch of new cards over the holidays & I've just about got the video put together. It's a slideshow of all the cards I finished. I hope to have it posted by tomorrow eve.
Hope you all had a great holiday & new year!
