An altered wall plaque which was originally a wooden wedding invite. I have chose soft colors and the textures on the board are hand drawn using home made texture paste filled inside a plastic paper cone! A distressed and weathered wooden plaque with some "Crafty Quotes" which am sure all of you will associate with! For more details, do visit my BLOG

For my project this month, I decided to make some handmade tiles. I used some cut outs from various paper collections and diecut elements, chipboard and dimensional magic for the tile like hard finish. I then used these tiles to decorate some boxes. Here's one of them. For more examples of such boxes visit my BLOG.

I altered an old box base and I used black velvet to line it. I then altered a mask I bought from a car boot sale. painted and decorated using broken jewelry. Voila! A Hanging box frame. Visit my BLOG to see more details.

New products from smaller companies often lead me on a creative adventure. There aren't recipes and lots of advertising so you get to explore for yourself. That's what I have done with this piece. It's taken me a while as there are another two to go with it. They have been designed for a specific location in our home. Want to know what I used and what I did? You'll have to visit my BLOG!

My boyfriend and I take road trips on his days off and just head off to routes unknown. I thought I would make a scrapbook of our travels using pictures that we have taken. The album is made using Cricut Elegant Edges Cartridge book page where I can write various comments in the open area with white pen. As our travels grow larger the book can be expanded as I have used a binder ring which has been embellished with various charms that has been used to hold the pages together - come travel with me and check out my travel book at Her Craftiness.

This is a project I intended to do more than a year ago, and now I am happy to have finally put this wonderful Advent Calendar together. Christmas is my favorite holiday, and celebrating Christ’s birth and all that means is a big part of our family Christmas. Now I am ready to share this with my sons when December First rolls around! Visit my BLOG for more details.

This little mermaid was done with water colors and gel pens on water color paper.  She is so sweet with her little fish friends swimming all around her. I get some of my inspiration living by the ocean, and I never get tired of drawing a lovely mermaid. All sweetness and fairytales, that's what I think of when I create one. I hope this picture is an inspiration to some of you. If you would like to see more of my work please visit my BLOG.
