I hope everyone's Easter was wonderful:) I know we're all looking forward to Spring flowers. Before we know it, we'll be celebrating Mother's Day, Graduations and Summer! Here's a recent Julie Nutting Doll Tag I made using scraps of paper I've been saving... I love how it turned out:)

Happy Spring to everyone! I really love the vibrant colors that we start to see in March & April, but I'm going to share a few of my recent projects that really emphasize my affinity for neutrals. I guess I just love that earthy, natural look... I've started to experiment with mixed media and I find that I can see the transformation of the piece with these tones. I finished my first Art Journal page recently. I titled it "Journey", because that's what I'm on in this stage of my life... A creative journey:)

Graphic 45 Design Team Audition 2016

 Well I'm just so excited! I've been working on some fun and exciting projects for the Graphic 45 Design Team Audition, and now I'm going to share them with YOU! I have admired and desired the wonderful collections that this company has made available to us crafting artists for years. I so enjoy the vintage style, but am particularly drawn to the overall message of the company,
Be you! Be creative! Take chances! Enjoy life, family and friends! So, with that in mind, I present to you my recent Graphic 45 inspired creations :)

                                        Enchanted Mirror~

World Travel~

Friendship Card~

And my final creation,
A Graphic45 inspired Wall Hanging~

You can find a step by step tutorial for this at

Thank you Graphic 45 for encouraging me to take a chance...

It may be St. Patrick's Day, and I love green, but I'm already thinking flowers and butterflies! The first day of Spring is this weekend and I'm looking forward to getting out and preparing the flower beds and watching the neighborhood bunnies:) And very soon I will have some really fun art projects to share with all of you.
                       Here's one for fun...

Hello and Welcome!

Let me introduce myself, I love arts and crafts ~ creating in general. I also really enjoy gardening, nature and animals- especially our pup. I love reading, laughing and geo-caching. And I love looking for the little joys in everyday life.
