Studio Makeover

Mar 21, 2013

Oh my good­ness… yes­ter­day, I start­ed the big switch a roo. I’m mov­ing my stu­dio from one room of our house to the front much larg­er room of our house. The front room has the most amaz­ing light and it lasts all day long. But let me tell ya, I can­not wait to have this task com­plet­ed. When I went to bed last night, I was hop­ing my fairy god­moth­er would show up and fin­ish it all but nope… she must have been busy help­ing some­one else. Although, I pret­ty much have as close to a fairy god­moth­er as I’m going to get. My neigh­bor Jen­nifer is so awe­some. She is the best cheer­leader, always pos­i­tive, every­thing is fun and when I’m purg­ing out my stu­dio I just walk a few feet and dump...

For The Love of Peeps

Mar 21, 2012

Ahhh, it’s spring­time which means flow­ers bloom­ing, birds tweet­ing, the leaves on trees are a beau­ti­ful spring green AND the shelves in Tar­get, Wal­green’s and Tom Thumb are FILLED with PEEPS! I love Peeps fresh from the pack­age, dried out and a bit chewy or warmed in the microwave does not mat­ter how they are giv­en to me I will eat them. I do find it strange though that I pre­fer the yel­low chicks and pink bun­nies over the oth­er col­ors. The taste is the same but for some rea­son the yel­low chicks and pink bun­nies are more appeal­ing to me. Maybe it’s because I always got yel­low chicks and pink bun­ny Peeps as a child every East­er. Since I’m addict­ed to Pin­ter­est, I did a lit­tle search for “Peeps” and look at all the...

Felted Bunnies and a Winner!

Mar 12, 2012

  I just had to show you the two bun­nies I made for Made­lyn and Bel­lie, this week­end. I felt­ed the bun­nies and car­rots and Mom made their tutus. You can see I’ve cer­tain­ly been bit­ten by the felt­ing bug. This week­end, I also went to a flea mar­ket and some antique shops to find items to incor­po­rate with my felt­ing projects. It was a very suc­cess­ful week­end for sure. I found lots of cute vin­tage items and I can­not wait to start cre­at­ing with them. I plan on cre­at­ing altered projects dur­ing the day and felt­ing at night then fill­ing up my online shop with all the felt­ing items I obses­sive­ly cre­ate. It’s a win win for every­one… I get to cre­ate like a made woman and you get cute hand­made items to...

What a bad blogger I have been…

Feb 9, 2009

As soon as I got home from CHA I hit the ground run­ning. No time to relax for a sin­gle sec­ond. I guess I will do a lit­tle run down of what has been going on in my lit­tle neck of the woods… 1st… CHA was a blast. Going with Maya Road is always so much fun. I did loads of make n takes, gave away fun stuff and got to chat with lots of won­der­ful peo­ple. 2nd… As soon as I got home I had to instant­ly start on a lay­out for Mem­o­ry Mak­ers. It is going to be includ­ed in an arti­cle in the July/August issue. I am not even going to tell you what it looks like as you will know it is mine the sec­ond you see it. It uses...
