Welcome to Georgia! Welcome to my new studio!

So, it's finally time for me to invite you into my home!  I have been asked several times what my new studio looks like, so I took a few minutes to bring you in!  Even Luna made an appearance!

If you have any questions or would like to know more about certain products or how I organized things, please drop me a note!

Welcome to Georgia!  It's vastly different than my last space and missing many many dear friends - but the creativity is coming back and you can start expecting more posts and videos coming soon!

Right at Home - Happy Mail Swap & 4CC Challenge!

My Happy Mail from my Swap Partner
I have 'met' many many incredible women over the past few years because of my love of paper crafting. These women have dedicated their lives to paper crafting and also giving back. One such instance is Nicole, from Right At Home. She decided to host a happy mail swap and I was fortunate to be able to sign up! Below is the happy mail I'll be sending and what I received earlier this week! The task was to send something sweet, something you love, something you made, and something cute. I decided to make a K-Cup holder, add the coffee I love, a super cute kleenex box, and a bag of chocolate covered pomegranate bites! YUM! I hope she enjoys!
My Happy Mail for my Swap partner in Missouri

The K-Cup holder has also been submitted to the 4 Crafty Chicks - Anything But a Card Challenge!  Making these little gems is so much fun!  If you'd like the directions for how to make these fun little guys - including a 6 pack, an 8 pack, and a small box, please visit my page with the instructions!

Penny Black and More Challenge 'One for the Girls'

I was so excited when I came across this blog and say the 'One for the Girls' Challenge!  I just adore the Penny Black and More Blog!  What great inspiration and ideas!

This was created with the Feline Die.  The moment I saw this die, I knew I had to have it! 

The sentiment is from Ellen Hutson, Amazing Women.

Thank you for a great challenge and get your craft on!

Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #143

Hi Everyone!  Thank you for joining us at Atlantic Hearts Sketch again this week!  For the below design, by Michelle and digitized by Brandi, I had so many ideas I didn't know what direction I wanted to go in!

I used Ton Stamps and created the flowers.  I used glossy accents to create the water effect and added a few silk flowers.  The sentiment is from Ellen Hutson.

I hope you join us this week!

4CC Challenge #280 - Tropical (Design Team Call)

What a great weekend!  I was able to stay home and enjoy the quiet... except for when Luna was trying to attach the squirrel outside, chasing the birds, jumping on the counter chewing on the plant, and trying to figure a way onto the fish tank that I finally got set up!

One of my goals this weekend was to head to the craft studio and when I came across the 4 Crafty Chicks tropical card challenge, it gave me the incentive I needed!

I had seen this panel card on several blogs lately and wanted to give it a try.  I also received a new stamp set from Close to My Heart, so I broke out the spectrum noir markers and some wink of stella and had some fun coloring!  When it's all folded up, I tied it with a bow and a small shell accent.
