About Me

My photo

Well, I can't really tell you allllll about me! LOL. But I can tell you that I'm a wife, mother, grandmother, aunt, cousin, and Christian. And I love scrapbooking, card making, painting, and altered art.  I love to coordinate parties with themes and come up with new ways to incorporate paper art into them.   I enjoy working with my hands and making something out of nothing.  It's such a wonderful thing to know that there are so many beautiful women out there who share the same passion for this hobby....ART! that I do. I draw inspiration from everything around me and from people like you! So, let's get scrappin'!

Latest projects...Yup, I've been a busy little crafter-b!

These were inspired from projects seen in the first ever SOC Blog Hop:

She's so sweet!

Hello friends!
I've been busy, busy, busy....making cards, doing layouts, etching glasses, making name tags, etc. The work of a serious crafter is never done! But I must admit, I'm having a blast! I don't get a chance to post regularly, but I've promised myself - because technically, this blog is for me...that I would at least get something written down at least once a month....Sometimes I don't have something good to say...and what were we taught as children? "If you don't have something good and nice to say, then don't say anything." Well, I've pretty much stuck to that old adage. And besides, there are days when I have plenty to say...but I'm too dang tired to say it! Amazing huh? Anyway, the picture here is of an image that was used in one of our weekly Friday Nite Chat challenges....isn't she sweeeeeeeet? Adorable even. I had a good time putting this card together....I don't know who it will go to yet....but it's ready to go! Thanks for looking! Hugs + Kisses

Yup, sending shout outs.....

It's been almost a month. And I've neglected my new baby.....my blog that is! I don't have enough time in the day to do everything that needs to be done, should be done, what could be done, and what I want to get done. There's always so much going on. I'm not complaining....I'm grateful for every day that the good Lord allows me to be able to do "anything." Eventually, I'll get around to posting some more pics to share of some of my favorite projects....when I have time of course.

It's a good thing that I didn't start this blog with the intention of having a "gazillion followers," or always having something to say to a group of people; but basically a place to say a few things that's on my mind (without cursing someone out!) and to have a place to store some photos. Haha.

I just really popped in to say that there's some fabulous stuff going on over at Scraps of Color.com. Most recently, we did a Black History month Bingo challenge. It was such fun. The hostess says that she will try to incorporate more of those types of challenges soon and I'm looking foward to being able to participate. You should really stop by and take a look. And join the board....view the gallery of fabulous creations....and leave some love posts. I still find it absolutely amazing that there's a place for US...a place that showcases our talents and love of this thing called crafting. So many different women, different ages, different economic backgrounds, different religions...and more....ahhh, lovely, just lovely....that all of our differences mean nothing except that it gives us a chance to be just what we were meant to be - different.... with a passion for the same thing - creating. Making beeeeeeautiful art...cards, scrapbooking layouts, artistic trading cards, altered art pieces....oh, I could go on and on! There are games to be played on a regular basis...blog-hops...swaps....and prizes galore! So, after reading this...take yourself over to SOC....I guarantee that you'll be in absolute awe of what you'll encounter there.

I must warn you though....SCRAPS OF COLOR IS ADDICTING (but hey, it's a good addiction if there is such a thing - haha).

Ta-ta for now...
