Miniature stand

Apr 29, 2011

Well yes­ter­day was a day of one flight dis­as­ter after anoth­er so I end­ed up not being able to attend Ranger U. I am so sad about it but it was out of my hands. I got to the air­port, bag­gage checked in, through secu­ri­ty and flight delay #1 came up, then not too longer flight delay #2 came up, not too longer after that flight delay #3 came up and then BAM flight can­celed as well as all flights to Newark. I was on the phone, inter­net and tex­ting try­ing to fig­ure out a way to get to Newark but it was just not in the cards for me. So here I sit at home wait­ing for my lug­gage to return to me and let me just say I’m a true Texas girl...

Creative Weekend at Rocky Mountain Memories

May 1, 2013

Fri­day after­noon, I taught the After­noon Tea class, which was loads of fun. Every­one cre­at­ed a mini album and cuff. The one thing I tru­ly love about teach­ing is even though every­one has the same sup­plies and prod­ucts, no two fin­ished projects ever look the same. Each per­son incor­po­rates their own lit­tle flare and style to their pieces. Teach­ing is one of my favorite things to do and being able to teach at such a won­der­ful­ly awe­some store with super friend­ly peo­ple makes it even more fun. In the “After­noon Tea” class every­one was hand stitch­ing, stamp­ing, sten­cil­ing, ink­ing, paint­ing, glu­ing and met­al stamp­ing. And in all the excite­ment I com­plete­ly for­got to get pho­tos of their fin­ished projects. Such a bum­mer as each mini album and cuff were gor­geous and so unique. There...

Valentine’s Day Charms

Feb 10, 2013

These lit­tle charms are so sweet (I know, excuse the pun but I could­n’t help it) that I can hard­ly stand their cute­ness. They are a per­fect accent for any sweet Valen­tine to wear all month long. When Maya Road released their Vin­tage Glass Mem­o­ry Vials I was so excit­ed because they are the per­fect minia­ture size for charms of any kind. You get 10 Vin­tage Glass Mem­o­ry Vials, five of each size per pack­age. I’m going to make a few using the sand I brought back from Greece and Italy then met­al stamp a charm with Mykonos and Bel­la­gio to attach to each vial as a fun memen­to. I love funky jew­el­ry and plan on hav­ing loads of fun with these. The sup­plies need­ed need­ed to make your charms are a pack­age of...

Simple Stories and Maya Road

Dec 5, 2011

I hope you are ready for a fun blog hop this week. Sim­ple Sto­ries and Maya Road will be fea­tur­ing lots of awe­some projects for the hol­i­day sea­son all week using the Sim­ple Sto­ries 25 Days of Christ­mas line and loads of Maya Road prod­ucts. Last night, I cre­at­ed a card that reminds me of a hol­i­day scene from the ear­ly 1900’s. A lady and gen­tle­man stand­ing in front of their Christ­mas tree look­ing out the win­dow as peo­ple pass by their home all dec­o­rat­ed for the sea­son or maybe watch­ing snowflakes as they gen­tly fall to the ground. Either way it is a mag­i­cal evening for them both. The win­dow is attached to the front of the card using foam squares to give it a bit of dimen­sion. I attached the minia­ture hol­ly...
