Old Friends

I was inspired by Belinda of Crazy Art Girl frame to dig out this old bracelet I made. It had fallen into disrepair from constant wear. I took at class at Stampaway from Lori Larson in 2006 and made this bracelet. Stampaway is coming up in another week and I can't wait to go. My friends from Dayton and Springfield will travel to Cincinnati and we will roam the convention together. I will try to remember to take pictures. This bracelet brings back great memories.

The first picture is of Austin and Dana when they were little people.

Then my Mom and Dad.

Then my Sisters and my Brother.

If you have any old friends laying in your jewelry stash get them out and revive the memories!

Adventure into Collage

I have always been in awe of collage artists. Mine usually end up filed in the circular file. But today I finally have one I actually like.


I started by adding some images from Artful Illusions and some paper from K&Company to a 5X7 canvas board. I used some watercolor crayons, a silver hot glue stick and some silver dewdrops. I covered the photos with Crackle Accents. Please tell me what you think. Does it need anything else?

I think I was inspired by having spent the day in the company of women. It was Red Hat Saturday and we met at Yolanda's house and after being well fed we hung out in the pool. No one went blind when I put on my swim suit so I think it was a good day.

Bar-B-Q and Babies


This is my 10 month old granddaughter enjoying a barbeque bone on the 4th of July.  We were house bound due to the rain but my allergies would have kept me in anyway. Nevertheless it was fun to be with family.

Hope you had fun! I sure did.
