Glittered Pumpkins

I love fall, the crisp morning air, the pumpkins, scarecrows, and hay bales. So, when a friend told me about some beautiful glittered pumpkins that she had seen on Martha Stewart, I just had to make some. Of course, I now have glitter everywhere! Even though they were a little messy to make, I think the end result was worth it. Maybe I will be inspired to drag out the rest of my fall decor. Happy Fall......

Wedding Announcement

My brother got married last month. It was a small intimate wedding. They wanted to send wedding announcements to family and friends who were not invited to the wedding. Of course I was thrilled when they ask if I would make the announcements. This is what I came up with. I am so pleased with how they turned out.

My Blog Debut

My love of paper crafting began about five years ago. A friend invited me to a SU demonstration and I was immediately hooked. I slowly started collecting paper, supplies and tools. I gained much satisfaction from the cards I made. However, it never occurred to me back then to photograph my projects. I didn't discover blogs until last year...can you believe it? I was blown away by all the amazing talent and creativity of others in the blogging world. I also loved how each blogger was documenting their artwork. I would sometimes consider creating a blog of my own...but never very seriously.

This summer, my sister-in-law asked if I had pictures of the projects I have made. After our conversation, I started thinking again about creating my own blog. It has taken me several months to muster up the courage to begin my blogging journey. I still have so much to learn, but I have to start sometime. Right?

So my journey begins...Simply Stated...
