Just have to show you…

Apr 2, 2010

So this evening Alan and I found out my book “Delight In The Details” was in stock at Barnes & Noble at Stonebriar Mall here in Frisco. Yes we raced over to see it and noticed they only had one left on the shelf. So far the only other place I have been able to see my book in person is The Crafty Scrapper in Waxahachie, Texas. I must say it does feel strange walking in and seeing it sitting on a shelf. Although it is a good strange and certainly makes me smile. Remember, I have this RAK giveaway going on. If you want to participate send me a photo of my book in a store near you… you do not have to be in the photo if you don’t want to. Just...

Glittered Easter Eggs

Mar 25, 2010

I see glittered paper mache eggs all over the stores this time of year and never can allow myself to purchase them since they are so easy to recreate. I love how they sparkle when the light hits them. You can find paper mache eggs in all sizes but since I have a bag full of small ones I decided to make some mini glittered eggs. Right now it is all about me trying to use up my stash. You can create and attach a hanger to the top of each egg out of Baker’s Twine then place it on that Easter tree I keep talking about… which should just about be filled if you are making these projects. I tell ya what, if you are creating these Easter projects send me a photo...

Fun little game…

Apr 3, 2009

So I just finished my 90th project for my book. This means I only have 10 more projects left to finish. I thought it would be fun to give a Maya Road RAK to the person that comes closest to the date (without going over) of when I will complete my 100th book project. All you have to do is leave a comment with the date and the person closest will win the RAK…. if two people guess the same date Ansley will pick the lucky winner. Oh just so you know my final deadline is May 5th. So don’t guess after this date. We are to the half way point in my Hippity Hop Easter Workshop. The last day for this workshop is April 18th. If you want to join in and create...

A little bit of this and a little bit of that…

Jan 5, 2009

First, thank you for all the sweet email of well wishes for Ansley and Alan. They are feeling better. Ansley did not go to school today as she is still pretty zapped but she is better and should be able to go back tomorrow.  I think I can now take off my nurse cap. To all you nurses out there… Big huge cheers to you… you all earn every cent you make and I’m certain you should be paid more… what a job. I am so glad it warmed up here a bit over the last few days or we would be having a nasty icy mess right now on the roads. Icicles are not a common site on my birdhouse. We are having lots of drizzly rain that is now starting to freeze...

Monsieur Hiver…

Oct 1, 2008

My snowman decoration is now known as “Monsieur Hiver” a.k.a. Mr. Winter. I loved JulieG’s comment/name suggestion: Ooooohhhhhh….how yummy is he! For some reason I get a very sophisticated vibe from him so I am going with “Monsieur Hiver” (Mr. Winter in French). So Julie please email me your address and I will get your winter RAK in the mail. And since so many people replied I picked comment number 10 since today is the first day of Oct. so Erika M who also felt he had a sophisticated feel please email me your address and I will send a winter RAK to you...
