Two chances to win a $20 Gift Card to the EAD STORE!!!

Our theme this month is "Get Organized"
You know the drill, make sure to start at the begginning

I'm your last stop!!
I made a simple, small magnet board to sit on my desk
for when I'm working to help me keep track of what's going on.
I also thought it would be great to hold sketches, or color themes.

Supplies Used: Galvanized Metal Tuesday Morning
I also altered this little Date/Address book.
I think I am one of the very few people left on the planet
who doesn't put all of this in my phone
I don't think I would know how to do that even if I could.
Anyway, I can't ever remember anything unless I write it down somewhere
which results in little pieces of paper everywhere with random numbers, thoughts, and appointments.
Supplies Used: EAD Stickerz Funny Punny
CS- Bazzil, PTI

At the Craft Fair...

Hey there!
Happy Sunday!
So I did my first Craft Fair yesterday...I didn't know what to expect really
but I would say I did OK
and it was a really good learning experience
and I also had a lot of fun doing it!
I'll have close ups of a lot of these projects later this week.

I need to replenish some crafting supplies!
I've been really good,
and haven't bought anything for about 4 months
It's funny how you run out of everything at once.
Spending today relaxing and organizing the pit that my craft area has become,
hopefully finishing Christmas Shopping
and maybe working on getting an ETSY store going.
Make sure to come back tomorrow for the

You were born to fly...

I first started working with canvases about 5 or 6 years ago
I used to scrapbook on them,
which later evolved to sort of photo collages and even some home decor
I mostly hated what I made
I look at them even now with such a critical eye, and then I think
everything I have ever made, love it or hate it
is all just part of who I am and who I want to be
I believe that's true for all of us in most things that we do
why do we struggle so much with ourselves?
why is it so hard to just let go?
I found a bunch of these canvas boards recently while going through some old boxes
I had even already primed them before stuffing them away
anyway, I've played with them a little the past couple weeks
and I really like the way this one turned out
it's one of the few times what I saw in my head actually happened "out loud"

K&Co paper (bird), Pink Paislee artisan tape, music sheet
acrylic paint, Unity Stamp, bird cage rub ons from Michaels
The phrase makes me think of a Sara Evans Song
that always makes me feel so free
"how do you wait for Heaven, who has that much time
how do you keep your feet on the ground
when you know
you were born

More Craziness

Hey there!
It's Day 3 of my 500 post celebration...
I can't remember the last time I posted 3 days in a row!'s a couple pictures of some more craft fair stuff I've been working on
I made these gift wrap kits with baker's twine, raffia, stamped shipping wrap, and handmade tags
I love that more rustic look for wrapping gifts

I used stamps from Unity, CTMH, and Autumn Leaves
I'm going to do some with white butcher paper too
All this craftiness has got me thinking about opening an ETSY Store
Today's addition to the prize package is
15 plain shipping tags
for you to decorate with your own crafty goodness
maybe you can use the vinyl in the prize, or the baker's twine to help you out!
Thanks so much for stopping by!!
