Monkey business

So, wanna see monkeys?

Here you go. I tried to make him look like Curious George. I only created one to test the reaction but it was the first one to sell so I created several more.

I think I finally figured out how to take pictures of these boards. Here he is up close!

Thank you for stopping by and I appreciate your comments!!

Sweet as a Cupcake --

Betcha been wondering what I've been up to! Well, I've been busy creating this magnetic, dry erase boards for the craft fairs. Here's a cupcake one. I'm so sorry about the terrible picture. The boards are just gorgeous in person! I just can't seem to take a good one without either the flash showing or my outline! The board is glossy that reflects. Each piece pierced individually together and dimensional using foamies and paper. So far I've created 4 designs. Here is just one. They are so fun to make, just like creating a layout!! My sister personalizes names on them by request so that's why there are lots of white space on the bottom. Back to creating more! Right now I'm working on monkeys . . .

All Ready To Go

Here are my pocket book calendars, all ready to go. There are approx. 48 here.

Simple designs using my Bella stamps, puny sayings, paper flowers, and a single brad.

I think I have at least 6 different types of designs,

all using scraps from past classes! The pens are from Ben Franklin, covered with matching paper. BTW, these pens work really well! Can't beat the price at 4/$1 (I think that is how much I picked them up for).

Thank you for stopping by!

A Greater Appreciation!

My friends are always teasing me about how my supplies have to "age" before I use it for my personal use. It is true, I admit! It's not because I prefer it that way, rather I don't have the time just to play and experiment at my own leisure. This is Hope. I have had her for two years, it's the first time I've used her and Greeting Farms has discontinued her!

Anyway, I decided to finally use her and discover what the hype is about Copic Pens (which, every one of you reading this has probably been using them for years already! (Again, showing my preference for aging!!) Ok, well, I had a little time to play, borrowed some pens from BFF Sherri and started to work.

I now have a greater appreciation for all of you lovers of Copic pens and cutesy images!!! It took me a while to get Hope to where I was happy.

So when you receive a hand colored image card like this and all those that you see all over the internet, it is an expression of love; time, effort and money spent on creating a beautiful handmade card to brighten someone's life.

Copic and cutesy stamp users ... YOU ARE DA BOMB!!!

PS: A special thank you to GF Colleen, for the beautiful sentiment stamp :o)
