Mixed Media Leftovers

I am a craft paper hoarder.  A paper, cut out scraps, oh look this would be cool for texture hoarder.  There, I have taken the first step to admitting I may have a problem and I feel relief! 🙂 I have a tote dedicated to my leftover papers, mop ups and other mixed media leftovers. …

Gelli Play Wednesdays 5-11-2016

Good morning!! I am so very excited about todays post! I love Gelli printing but all too often I make the prints and they just sit there. I saw a post on Pinterest and just had to try it.  I used the Avery sticker labels (2″ round) as my paper for the gelli prints. Now…

Colorful Comeback Page!

I need color!!!!

Whew! I have just returned from Orlando/Kissimmee for V’s spring break. We went to Gatorland, Seaworld, Melbourne Beach, Cocoa Beach, Coco Key Waterpark, and played in the pool everyday. I loved the sunshine and the warm weather and it was even better considering at home in Michigan it was snowing the whole time!  I left…
