Photo on the side bar :)

If you click on the photo in the side bar of the Gift Card Holders, it will take you to Create & Decorates website and it gives instructions on making your own gift card holders. Enjoy! I really enjoyed making the pattern for them I hope you have as much fun painting them as I did. Have a great day!

Decisions, Decisions, Decisions

I have been tirelessly working in the dungeon on many different items. I just finished a child's growth chart and painting. It was fun to do. A little change of pace for me recently. My mind races from idea to idea. I need to regain focus so I can accomplish another goal. I will have some primitive items coming out in the August issue of Create and Decorate...so look for the issue coming out in June. I am always thrilled to work with the creators at Create & Decorate, always a pleasant bunch. I don't know if you know this but they have projects online that you can do. If you take a peak you will find my Gift Card Holders in there. I will post a link for you. I can never get them to directly link so you will have to copy and past. Sorry :(

Other things going on for me right now....hmmm...I am working on some package ornies and cinnamon and regular salt dough bowl fillers. These are so much fun to do. I have been dipping them in scented was as well as dusting them with mica flakes...They not only smell good but they sparkle too.

Here is a tip for you fellow creators. If you use mica flakes and they seem too large for your projects, I take them and put them in a coffee bean grinder and it grinds them up rather nicely. I can make them as small or not so small for my projects. I love it. I will be posting some pics of my newest creations tomorrow. So look for the ornies and fillers!
I hope all of you had a wonderful Christmas and New Year. Now it is onto Valentines! I love Valentines. Well I should get off here and continue to rummage through the net looking for things that I don't need. Have a wonderful evening.
