Now Selling At The Crafty Scrapper

Dec 18, 2014

I’m so hap­py to tell you that I am now sell­ing my hand­made vin­tage tin neck­laces at The Crafty Scrap­per in Wax­a­hachie, Texas. Car­olyn Ross moved her amaz­ing store to a new build­ing and she now has a bou­tique that offers unique hand­craft­ed items. So, if you are look­ing for a lit­tle some­thing spe­cial for a friend, co-work­er or fam­i­ly mem­ber please go check out her store. All my neck­lace pen­dants are cre­at­ed from vin­tage tins and jew­el­ry pieces and each piece is one of a kind. No two will ever be alike. Also, I still have a few Mys­tery Goody Box­es avail­able. If you are inter­est­ed in pur­chas­ing one, each box is a Medi­um Sized Flat Rate box filled with new and very gen­tly used prod­ucts from major man­u­fac­tures like Ranger, Maya Road, Fiskars,...

Featured Artist ~ Melissa Phillips

Feb 24, 2012

I love Melis­sa Phillips, not only is she super tal­ent­ed she is super sweet too! I was thrilled when I saw what she cre­at­ed using the Soci­ety Lady stamp set from my Anti­quat­ed Col­lec­tion. Her “Enjoy” card is sim­ply gor­geous! And now look at the adorable heart pil­low Melis­sa cre­at­ed. I love the tag she made using the Soci­ety Lady stamp. This tag looks so dreamy and accents her pil­low per­fect­ly. Next week, I will show you a few more items Melis­sa cre­at­ed using the Anti­quat­ed Col­lec­tion stamp sets. You are going to love them! Now I’m off to load up my car and head down to Wax­a­hachie for some fun at The Crafty Scrap­per. Tonight is my book sign­ing and a fun free make n take using the Anti­quat­ed Col­lec­tion ~ Per­fumery stamp...

Thanks for Pinning…

Sep 27, 2011

I just want to give a heart­felt thank you to those of you who take the time to pin my projects on Pin­ter­est. It always makes me so sur­prised and hap­py when I’m surf­ing Pin­ter­est and come across one of my projects. If you are a fol­low­er you will see that I cre­at­ed a board to say, “Thanks!” As I come across my pinned projects I post them to my “Thanks For Pin­ning My Projects” board. If you are new to Pin­ter­est you can see my most recent pins on the right side col­umn of my blog. I must say it is amaz­ing how fast time flies when I’m surf­ing and pin­ning. I’m try­ing to avoid it this week as I need to fin­ish up some Christ­mas orna­ment projects I’m going to teach at...
