Father's Day Projects! Retro Radio & Bi-Plane Mini

Good Afternoon Everyone!

Happy Friday!  I hope all is well and that the weather around you is bright and beautiful.  We here in Central Texas have already seen high 90's.  I wish Spring would last a bit longer...Love those 70 degree days!

With Father's Day right around the corner I wanted to share a couple of projects that I just completed with you...


Vintage Bi- Plane with Accordion Mini



I had a ball making this plane.  I knew I wanted a plane shape but I also wanted to somehow include a mini inside.  I came up with an accordion mini cut from chipboard in the shape of the body of the plane.  Add small pictures and journaling to the pages.  Totally easy to put together using the included glue.   Take your time and enjoy making this your style with your own paint or paper.

The Retro Radio Clock




This kit was inspired by my Father's old radio clock that I recently found under my mom's bathroom sink. The Retro Radio has a quartz clock movement that is included in the kit. Open the lid and you can use it as a phone charger with included chipboard pieces for storage underneath or take out the pieces and use it for larger items you want to get off your desk. Cover the Retro radio with the precut papers and add your own silver paint for accents. Really fun and easy project to make. Makes a great Father's Day Gift as well.

New Projects!!!

I have been having a blast making tiny things lately.  Mainly wee little houses.  I sent a few around to my friends who have been having fun making them and they suggested I do them for my shop and add to them making a little village...I call them Tiny Tag Houses.  They are so easy to put together.  All you need to do is pop them out of the tag, assemble with your own white glue and paint.  Add them to a shrine, put them at the base of a potted plant, give them as a gift, or create a tiny village in your kitchen window.























If you would like to give the Tiny Tag Houses a try please check them out here:

New Thread Holder Kits!!!

Well, you made it down to the bottom of the page!  Yahooo!  I was inspired by an antique thread holder I had seen on Antique Road Show UK.  I loved it as it keeps all your thread spool together and has a handy dandy drawer at the bottom for sewing notions!  I thought I would like to give that a try and this is what I came up with...Fun and so easy to make...Just add your own paint or cover it with patterned paper to make it yours.  There are two styles to choose from...


You can find this one by clicking the link below:

Thank You for coming by!  Happy National Scrapbook Day Weekend!

New Project: The Old Woman Who Lived In a Shoe Kit

Good Friday Afternoon Everyone!

Today, I wanted to share a new project that was inspired from a nursery rhyme.  I love houses and architecture I also love to think back on how stories made me feel as a child.  It's fun to go back and look at old story books and see the amazing illustrations.  That to me was what it was all about...The pictures...always fascinated by them.  So my inspiration combined the picture in my mind and the shoe...or the house of The Old Woman In Who Lived in a Shoe....

March Projects: The Vintage Lemonade Stand and The Bird Houseboat

Good Morning Everyone!

I keep talking about how gorgeous it is here in Texas...Everything is in bloom and it's such a pleasure to walk around my yard each day to see what has grown.  Butterflies fluttering around, sunshine, Spring rains, blooms and so many beautiful birds building nests...That's exactly where my inspiration came from this month...

The Vintage Lemonade Stand was a project sample I did for Graphic 45's Creativation booth in cold January dreaming about the sunny days ahead.  I love this sweet Sun Kissed stand selling tangy refreshments by the sea...

The Bird Houseboat

This project is a favorite of mine...A fun whimsical addition to your Spring decor...The Bird Houseboat is covered in Authentique's Refreshed Paper Collection.  The boat has an umbrella over the top and a propeller to keep her sailing along.  Slipped inside the boat is a simple tag mini to place your pictures, ephemera, embellishments and memories.

Good Afternoon Friends!

It's been a CRAZY month!  I am a total believer that when you are down in the dumps or full of things that need to be thought over...CRAFT!  It takes your mind off things and focuses all that energy to something creative and positive.  Needless to say, I have been very productive lately...This is a pretty long post with lots of pictures.  Please be patient and scroll all the way down to the bottom.

I would like to show you some new projects that are now in the shop.  The start of Easter projects, St. Patrick's Day projects, New Fairy Lane Doors to add to your collection, and a new Tini Mini and Tini Mini Cabinet.  So, let's get started on introducing them to you...
