This is my place to share my creative bits and pieces. My art has no rules, no limits and absolutely no order. My projects change with my moods but for the last few years, my main focus has been paper art. Cards, collage, mixed media and as many techniques as I can get to. My inspiration comes from everywhere.

I hope you enjoy your visit.

Hi! We are back from our beautiful Caribbean Cruise vacation. It was wonderful! If you ever can-go. You won't be sorry. I know there've been some incidents lately but do your homework, use a reputable service and go.
In life, stuff happens.

Before we left, I carved an eraser. I hadn't done this for a few years and thoroughly enjoyed doing it again. The first picture is the carved eraser stamp and the second shows what I made with it.
There is a small piece of double-sided tape holding the eraser to the block. You can use these stamps without a block but I had one so why not? :)
It was a few days before Valentine's Day and I wanted to make it to give DH on the Tuesday. I couldn't share it before we left as he reads my blog- isn't that great?! Anyway, it was fun and there will be more carved stamps in the near future. There are tutorials all over online if you want to give it a try. Just use Mr. Google.

DH drew the two winners for the pendants I was giving away for the 2nd anniversary of my blog. They are Donna, and Deana. Congratulations!

We're happy to be home and I'm revved to create so I hope to have some shares for you real soon.

Have a wonderful day!

  While I don't have a photo of my own to share with you today, I have a couple links for you that will more than satisfy your need for eye candy. Inspiration galore!
The first is Pinterest and it is amazing! I have an account there ( you can too ) and you can see my pinboards by clicking here.

Here's another that can totally distort your sense of time, as in " I only sat down a minute ago and HOW many hours have gone by?"  Click here.

Try to remember to turn some of the inspiration into some creative play time for yourself.
Have a greater than ever day.

Once again, I wanted to take up the challenge offered by Colour Q. Bold and dramatic colours, aren't they? Edgy even. Deciding how to use them came easy as I wanted to try the challenge at Splitcoast as well, and make a cascade card. Here is my entry....
Not edgy, not terribly bold, but quite girly and a little dramatic. The best part is how easy this card is to make. I followed the tutorial here. 
Give it a try!

Thanks for looking!

I hope you aren't tired of the tangles yet. The rock on the left was first sealed with Mod Podge, then I drew the tangles with my permanent marker. The base colour is the natural colour of the rock. The other rock is straight decoupage. I had a sheet of tangles laser copied, then I cut it up and podged it onto the rock. They will be useful as inspiration for tangle times, as well as just being decorative.

Don't forget to comment if you'd like to be entered into the draw for a necklace on Feb. 10. You can see them on the previous post.

I hope you enjoy some creative time today.
