August Update :)

August has been a super busy month for me. I've taught classes, and I went on a scrapbook retreat and a girlfriend's cruise. My daughter started kindergarten,  my husband went back to teaching, and my son has jumped right into the terrible twos. :) I've been sick this week, but I still have a few more things to cross off my list before I can say goodbye to August.

Here's a sweet pregnancy paper bag album I made at the beginning of the month, and I am just now getting on eBay. Eeek. Time has slipped away from me.

I will be so happy when fall arrives. It is my absolute favorite time of year. We get a break from the relentless heat of the Texas summer, and there are so many traditions to be celebrated.

 I have already started my fall crafts, and scheduled a couple classes at The Crafty Scrapper.

I am going to renew my membership at the Dallas Arboretum so I can take photos with the kids to fill this album. It's one of my favorite things to do all year.

This is a little sneak peek of the Halloween banner I made with my daughter's previous costumes. It will be so fun to pick out a costume with her this year. Maybe we'll make something handmade. :)

Hope August treated you well! Dee2

Spring in Full Bloom Banner

A friend sent me a picture of her easter decorations and asked me to make her a banner to match. I created it using soft pastels with little pops of rich teal and deep pink.

I layered each panel with patterned papers, inky chipboard, and soft ribbons.
Then I layered in buttons and crepe paper rosettes.
The butterflies have three layers of chipboard paper and vellum.
It turned out so soft and feminine. If you want to make one for yourself most of my supplies are from Maya Road.

Thanks for stopping by to take a look. Happy scrapping! DeeDee

Altered Cigar Box

This is an altered Cigar Box class I taught. I played with modeling paste and inks to achieve this vintage look. Love it! 

Thanks for looking!

No Place Like Home

I created this Wicked house to hold some ATCs from a swap I participated in. :) It was so fun to just let my imagination soar. 

My own little yellow brick road. 

Hand-dyed flowers. 

Wicked feet. 

Maya Road trinkets.

To Blog or Not to Blog

That is a question I have been kicking around for years now. It is hard to establish it as a habit, but also a hard habit to kick! As of now, I have updated a few things on my craft blog, and hope to keep up with it more faithfully. Hopefully that will mean more time spent in my craftroom as well. :) I have a new goal to get something published so after my vacation next week I will be looking around to see what people are looking for submission wise. It feels like a grand adventure to set out upon. :)

Thanks for your support these last four years of blogging. :)
