This is me....

My Photo
I'm a person of wide interest. I like doing a lot of things but I'm a master at none. Right now I'm having so much fun making cards to share with my friends and family ....There are so many wonderful designers out there and the creativity of each one is so incredible. Im currently taking a painting class working with acrylic paints. I have a loving family...Married to the same wonderful man for over 31 years. I have three grown children and one beautiful grandaughter(who also shares my love of crafting).

Christmas Ornaments

 I have also been working on some Christmas Ornaments that I think are just so beautiful....They are pretty easy to make although they take a very long time to put together....And they take some practice in folding them. They are called Kusadama Balls...there are alot of tutorials on youtube that you can follow.

This is  a close up of one of the petals in the ball.
Enjoy Hugs Jean

Projects I have been working on!!!

I wanted to share the  Halloween cards that I sent out to my Sisters..They were so much fun to do and so easy.The stamps are from Impression Obsession and are called The Peeking Pumpkin .... you can find the stamp here.I used My Triart alcohol markers and a few prisma pencils to color the images
I used several Martha Stewart punches ....Dont you just love the mice all in a row and the fence with all the bats .The papers are from K&C. And the embellies are form Michaels.

Hope you enjoy Hugs Jean

I know I've been gone a lone time!!

Well I know it has been a long time......Many things have happen to me the past few months and I just haven't been able to post anything.I will get back into the swing of things I  promise
I had to get ready for our school opening....School started so early this year august 18th.That just didnt seem fair....Summer was just to short!!!!!
Then My Uncle who was the most dearest of Uncle's passed , and my family and I traveled to Montana from California( that was the longest drive...18 hours non stop), but his Services were beautiful and it was a wonderful celebration of his life.
Then a friend of mine passed the same week....  of colon cancer, and that was especially hard for me because we shared the same illness.
I will miss both of them so much
Thennnn...... to top all of this off I had strep throat I had to deal with.
Well now I am finally able to get back into the swing of things and I will start to post on a semi regular basis.
I have quite a few things to share and I'm excited to share the projects that I have been working on. I will have a post for you tomorrow
