Surprises are so FUN!

Mar 26, 2012

Terri and I headed down to Beaumont, Wednesday to surprise my mom and dad. This surprise has been in the making for over a month and if you know me well, you know it is a miracle that I kept the surprise. The photo above was taken on our way home because on the way down it was pitch black. We decided to leave at 8 o’clock in the evening instead of bright and early, Thursday morning. This means we arrived at mom and dad’s at 1:30 in the morning. There is nothing more fun than surprising your parents with an unexpected visit and of course hearing your mother come out of a sound sleep saying, “What in the hell is going on” (still makes me giggle) as Terri, Amanda (my niece) and I...

In Honor of Spring

Mar 20, 2012

Since today is the first day of Spring what better way to celebrate than with a book giveaway. All you have to do is leave a comment on this post telling me which “Season” is your favorite and why. I will announce the winner of my book “Delight In The Seasons”, Friday. I love all the seasons but summer in Texas is my least favorite. The fun holidays and celebrations that come along  like birthdays, vacations, weddings, Independence Day etc., certainly helps make up for the 100+ degree temperatures BUT I still do not like summer. So, leave a comment for your chance to win… I can’t wait to read about your favorite season. Good Luck....

Year in Review ~ Goals

Jan 9, 2012

I’m very goal oriented and love creative challenges, so in 2011 I set two goals finish my second book without a hitch and find someone that believed in me enough to launch a very vintage stamp line. With a lot of hard work and faith by the end of the 2011 I was able to check these two goals off my list. It is such a nice feeling to set goals and see them obtained. 1. In early May, I completed my second technique based book ~ “Delight in The Seasons” this book will give you ideas to create a year of memorable holidays & celebrations and is filled with loads of inspiration. If you would like to see inside my new book please click HERE. Then scroll down to the “Selected Pages” and...

Yesterday, was such a DELIGHTFUL day. The advance copy of my latest book Delight In The Seasons arrived… yes, I sat and looked at every single page feeling so accomplished. I allowed myself to soak up the excitement and joy of seeing all my hard work finally in print. I don’t do this nearly as much as I should. I’m always ok, finished that now move on to the next idea/project… And once again, F+W Media, Inc. did an incredible job turning my vision into reality. Their entire team is amazing. They help to create some of the most gorgeous books on the market. If you are wondering a bit about this book here is how they describe it on the back cover… Make Each Season Delightful! Lisa Pace is at it again, this...

Last day of Show and Tell

Oct 20, 2011

This “Happy Birthday” tag can be found in the Summer chapter on page 64 of Delight In The Seasons. The technique featured is on page 65. But as you know this part still remains a secret. And just so you know, having to keep all of this a secret is killing me. I cannot wait for this book to hit the shelves. I used all kinds of fun products and tools when creating this tag…. Punches and Decorative Scissors, Ink and Paint, Stickles and Glitter, Stamping and Distressing and added texture using Seam Binding and Burlap. Machine stitching with a basic straight stitch using cream thread all around the patterned paper pieces and inner edge of the tag adds the perfect finishing touch. I hope this weeks Show and Tell has given you just...

Joyful Gift Tag

Oct 19, 2011

This tag can be found on page 44 in the Spring chapter of Delight In The Seasons. The adorable chicks are from Crafty Secrets Vintage Heartwarming. I’ve always been a huge fan of their vintage images. They have a wide selection that are perfect for vintage inspired projects. The altered Maya Road Scallop Frames accent the chicks perfectly. And I was thrilled when I discovered that Jenni Bowlin’s Paint Dabbers in Chewing Gum and Soap Powder matched the Little Yellow Bicycle patterned papers so perfectly. When everything came together for this project I ended up with an adorable tag to place on a gift bag or inside a frame to use as a Spring themed piece of art. And many thanks go to the following book sponsors… Little Yellow Bicycle, Jenni Bowlin, Maya Road, Ranger, Crafty...

Winter Mittens

Oct 18, 2011

This winter project was super fun to create. As you all know, I love Winter and think mittens look so cute placed around our home during the cold winter months.  I love the homey feel they give. This project can be found in the Winter chapter on page 24 of Delight In The Seasons. Page 25 features step by step instructions and detailed photographs showing you how to recreate the featured technique. I love all the sparkle from the white iridescent glitter, red rhinestones and silver beaded trim and think the white boa feathers accent the cuff of each mitten perfectly. The boa feather cuff on each mitten reminds me of the little white hand muff I had when I was around 3 or 4 years old. I remember like it was yesterday, sitting...

So HAPPY to share…

Oct 17, 2011

Since my book has gone to print I can now share with you one of the four projects featured on the cover of Delight In The Seasons. This book has been inside my head for a very long time… I wanted one that was filled with lots of inspiration for holidays, celebrations and special occasions. I didn’t want it to be just holiday related. It’s so exciting to know this book idea will become a reality in just a few short months. Delight In The Seasons is filled with 40 techniques and 60 projects all created by me for Winter, New Year’s Day, Christmas, Valentines’ Day, St. Patrick’s Day, Spring, Easter, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Summer, Independence Day, Graduation, Birthday, Wedding, Travel, Autumn, Halloween, Grandparent’s Day, New Baby and Thanksgiving.
