Hello, Stranger!!

Sorry!! It's been so long since I last posted... Here are some of the things I've been up to...



I made this card. Um, I was trying to make a quilt card, but this turned out more like a really pretty window!! Oh well... At least it still looks pretty :)


I added some things to my Joker card for the Art Haven swap. hehe- I thought I was being clever by adding a "silver lining" to the cloud :)





These are pictures of my latest jewelry box. It's painted white and distressed for that weathered look. Then I added cream and white flocked vintage wallpaper to the drawers. I love, love, Love(!!) flocked paper! Cream felt lines the inside of all the drawers and a white pearly knob sits in the center of each one. But the cutest things are the two german glass glittered cherubs on each side of the box! Even though I love this, it's in my Etsy store.


I have been into tag making lately... Here are my latest tags. The first one I made for my friend, Jan. I thought she might like the style since she liked the last tag I had done. The second one I made for Jan's friend who just found out she has colon cancer. Jan is awesome and is making a tag gate for her! You can read more about that HERE. I have also made duplicates of these and put them in my Etsy store.

And last, but not least, I recently bought this shabby chic mirror. And it came with 2 matching sconces that hold taper candles. It's 3' long!! And now proudly hanging in my craft room. And it was only $30!!!! I couldn't believe it. I felt like such a thief coming out of the thrift store!
I also bought a white armoire from a garage sale for only $40! No pics of that yet, though, because it's not here yet. Also, we are moving soon! Into a 4 bed, 1.5 bath house. Woohoo!
Tomorrow we are supposed to go to the World's Largest Yard sale at the fairgrounds. Now it's Jello time and then probably off to bed soon. Thanks for stopping by! :)

Julie, I love all of your latest ART projects...you have been busy for sure! I'm touched by your post regarding your friend with colon cancer........I'll be sending a tag to Jan filled with hope and many prayers. I'm too excited that you are about to move and can't wait to hear more about it. Diann
