Well, I hope everyone had a very very Merry Christmas!  

Creating and sharing art is a passion for me ... as I am sure it is for so many of you!

2019 is just around the corner and let me take this opportunity to thank you so much for your friendship and support of my art over the years.  I am thrilled beyond measure at the friends and art "family" I have met here.  I am truly blessed.

I am also thrilled to have a new post being featured on Andy Skinner's blog right now.

Again, thanks to each and every one of you for your thoughts and comments you've left not only on my blog but also on Andy's, DecoArt's and my Facebook connections as well.

Love to all and may you be blessed in 2019!

Ho! Ho! Ho!  

Christmas is almost here!  Let me take this opportunity to wish you and your loved ones the most BLESSED Christmas season you have ever had!

I absolutely love this season for creating home decor, ornaments and heirloom pieces that hopefully will be something passed down in our family.  Maybe you do the same?

I am so proud to be a part of the DecoArt Mixed Media Design Team.  DecoArt is a fabulous company to work with.  They are so generous with their amazing products and I truly LOVE working with them and their partner companies.

Here I have created a sweet Mini Christmas House ornament.  You can see all of the pictorial tutorial over on the DecoArt Mixed Media Blog HERE

Leave a comment there and/or here if you would like.  I LOVE hearing from you!

Again, Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all!  May your 2019 be filled with joy and laughter.  And may all of your Christmas wishes come true!

December 1st already?  Does anyone else wonder WHERE this year has gone?

There's a saying that time flies when you're having fun.  That must be the case as I am working with my DecoArt Media, Andy Skinner and Tando Creative products.  They really are so much fun to work with and the time in the craft room seems to fly by when I am in a "creative mode".  That being said ...

I am really excited to share my latest creations for Andy over on his blog.  HERE is the link to see posts by his super talented Creative Team.  New today on his blog:  My MINI BOOKS FROM ONE EXTREME TO THE OTHER!

These two mini books were super easy and super fun to make. Using DecoArt Media products and two books from a 5 book Tando Creative Mini Book Kit as well as other miscellaneous Tando Creative elements, these books came together quickly.

From Andy's more signature industrial/grunge style to a retro Santa Clause mini book these little gems are so versatile.  They can be actual little books or in the case of the Santa book, a Christmas tree ornament.

For the entire pictorial tutorial and list of supplies needed, be sure to go

Have a fantastic week and thanks for stopping by!
