Lol­lipop Orna­ment

Dec 2, 2014

I’ve been searching through my “Blog Archives” and thought I would re-post this cute hol­i­day ornament that was originally posted on December 3, 2006.

What a fun weekend…

Jun 14, 2010

This past weekend was filled with loads of fun at The Crafty Scrapper. I taught three sold out classes, 2 – Diamonds Are A Girls Best Friend and 1 – Tuscany and Roses. I actually remembered to bring my camera AND take some photos. Although I must admit I forgot to take photos of the first class.

Heritage Pennant

May 17, 2010

This is one of my favorite photos of my Mom and her Mother. I am guessing this photo was taken around 1944. I think photo booth photos are the best. So wanting to be able to see this photo more often I decided to create a little heritage style pennant. Now I can display it however I wish. Tips, Techniques and Tutorials I had a super fun Saturday at The Crafty Scrapper. I took two soldering classes 101 and 201. Trisha is a great teacher. If you ever have a chance to take a class from her I suggest you do. You will be so happy you did. I will show you some of the charms I made later in the week. Have a great day. I’m off to send Carolyn the info needed...
