Published in Somerset Life, Spring 2013 and Paper Roll Bunnies


 I’m thrilled to have my pillow boxes featured in the new issue of Somerset Life.   I’m always amazed at the beauty and creativity in this publication.  It’s my favorite!  Thanks so much to the editors for the opportunity to share my work within these lovely pages. This issue will be on the news stands April 1st.

And if you need a last minute spring project for little ones visiting for the holiday, try these little bunnies.  I posted how to make these cute paper roll bunnies last spring and included the pattern.

This year I made some with a vintag-ey look using muted floral papers with some baker’s twine and paper flowers as embellishments.

If you need a fun and easy last minute spring craft, check out the original post from last year and choose whatever type of papers you like best.

I wish all of you a Happy Easter weekend! Thanks for stopping by!

So excited and grateful to see my little vintage notebook paper boxes in the current Somerset Life

Isn’t the cover beautiful? The magazine is worth a look just to see Renee Roger’s altered matchbox creations.  Gorgeous!

Many thanks to Christen Olivarez and the staff over at Stampington, I appreciate the opportunity to share my projects.

And I’m especially grateful to them for including this little bit of information at the end of my article.

Have you ‘liked’ my FB page, yet?  You can see drawings, photos, and works in progress during the week.

As always, please keep my Etsy shop in mind if you need cards or a one-of-a-kind gift.  All the proceeds from my shop are sent to help fund research for Cockayne Syndrome.

I’ll be back with my next stitched photo transfer.  Thank you for your visit!

This is a special surprise!

My cloth diaper jewelry pouch I made for my favorite necklace (given to me last Christmas) is featured in the new issue of Sew Somerset.

Their photos make everything look dreamy.  Thank you to editor, Jennifer Taylor,  and everyone over at Stampington for providing so many opportunities for artists of a thousand and one different styles to share their work.  It’s an honor to be included!

Be sure and check out this wonderful publication and see some of the most creative art projects using  needles and thread.

Are you ready for the holidays?  Ready or not, they’re here and it’s time for Christmas crafting!  I’m working on some easy-to-make miniature book ornaments so I’ll show you those soon. Thanks for stopping by!

So grateful and thrilled to see my holiday clothespins featured in the brand new issue of Somerset Life.

A great big THANK YOU to the wonderful editors and staff of this gorgeous publication. I’m truly thankful and honored to be included.

Be sure and check it out at your local bookstore or from their web site.  Each and every page is full of beauty and ideas for artistic living.

I actually made several more of these clothespins using sequins on the ends but I didn’t send them all in.  I should have! Maybe next time I’ll be more confident.

I’m just back from our trip to England and still tired. We had a great time and I can’t wait to share some photos with you.

And as for my ‘adventure hair’, the pretty pink extensions came out much too soon! (I pulled on them too much)

  I posted this photo on my FB page when they were just put in.  If you haven’t gone over  and ‘liked’ my page yet, please do!  I’ll be posting photos, drawings, and other works in progress photos that don’t make it onto the blog.

Have a great weekend!
