Sweet Shoppe

 I put together a trio of two cards and a tag with the adorable Sweet Shoppe line by lilybee design.

I used Mojo Monday #293 for my jumping off point.

The bright crisp colors remind me that summer is just around the corner.

I will be sharing the how to and supply list in class on Tuesday, 6/4/2013 over at Hearts N Crafts.

If you're free, I'd love to have you join me.

teaching paper crafts

I have been teaching paper crafts and mixed media at my local scrapbook store Hearts n Crafts for a couple of months now and I love it.

It has been slow going trying to establish myself and my style as a teacher but I am willing to be patient and know if I just keep doing what I love I will begin to build that core group that likes what I'm doing, too.

This latest group of cards were with paper that Leeza Gibbons designed for Prima Marketing.  I love the color combo and the bold graphics.

It was fun teaching the ladies how to sew on paper.  I think they all feel brave enough to give it a try on their own even the ones who don't sew.

My next class will a mixed media layout on Saturday, May 18, 2013. 

I have been cleaning out my studio for a couple of days now and somehow it looks worse than when I started.  Isn't that always the way!

back again...

I can't believe it's been nearly a year since I posted on this site.  It's not that I haven't been in my studio as I certainly have been. 

In fact, I have been feeling more free creatively than ever.  I think it's more that I wasn't sure I needed a second blog to keep up with and I wasn't sure what direction I wanted this blog to go in.

Not that I'm totally sure now, but I think I have come to a place creatively that I want to journal it through pictures on a daily basis.  Kind of a way to keep accountable if only to myself that I will be in my studio creating something every day.  It is where I am most true to myself. 

I also hope to share more of the nuts and bolts of what I do and what products I'm loving.

If you still have me on your google reader, you can help me keep accountable, too.
