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'!

Birdhouse Swap

Hi everyone.
So glad that you took the time out of your busy day to pop and see what I've been up to!

As you know, my friend Sharon S. and I have been having our very own monthly swaps.  We decide together what item we'd like to alter and then we create for each other.  And I just wanted to show everyone the birdhouse that Sharon S. created for me.

Isn't it the cutest darned  thing!?

There's so much detail to it.  Flowers, flowers, and more flowers! Made of fabric, paper, plastic, and ceramics.  What crafty girl do you know that doesn't like lots of flowers? The paper that she used mimics bricks for the roof.  And there's also paper that has words written on it.  Somehow she managed to put the paper so that it shows inspirational words; like talent, truth, and believe. There are tiny little butterflies and a picket fence.  A watering can.  There's even a bird bath and nest!

I love it. And so did my daughter (caught her just in time....Her words? "But ma, it would look great on that shelf in my kitchen.")

Momma loves her, but in the words of Hammer "...can't touch this!"

Until next time
