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.

As many of you know I love that com­bi­na­tion.… spark­ly things make me so hap­py. Espe­cial­ly around the hol­i­days.

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!

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...
