Merry Christmas Eve!

I can't believe it's Christmas Eve.
We are having Christmas at my house this year and I'm really excited about it.
Yesterday I cleaned.
Today I'm going to be setting up the tables.
 Right now Ralph's making me breakfast. :)
 Kids are barely getting up.. well the teenage boy isn't.

Today I'm off and I will have to get up and be at work in the morning at 5am. I hope this will be the last year I have to work on Christmas. That's what I want for Christmas!

Good things are happening in 2015! I can feel it.

Here's an ornament I made using the Julie Nutting wooden ornaments. I painted it with acrylic paints and embossed in gold and used crackle accents a the new Prima Finnabair glitter. I really LOVE the way it came out. The photos really doesn't do it justice.

I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas!

Snowman Mixed Media Canvas!

 Hello Everyone!

 I have a Mixed Media Canvas to share with you for Limor Webber's Design Team. I have taken some bits and pieces of paper and created my own adorable snowman. I've added some fun mixed media elements to give texture and shine and pops of color. I absolutely adore the way this piece has come out.

I hope you enjoy my photos and videos.

Happy Holidays!

Bloom Girl Sharon Mixed Media Notebook!

Hello crafty friends, It's my turn to post on the Bloom Girl DT Blog!
I have an altered notebook to share with you. I will be completely honest. About 20 min into this project I was like ok, I'm done... this looks HORRIBLE! I almost turned off the camera. Then I was like you know what.. let's go with it.. I can always delete the video and start over.. I might as well try some new ideas and techniques. So I did and I'm so glad I did, too!
Here's my notebook I came up with.


I hope you enjoyed the photos.. I hope you will check out how I created this in my video below,

Products Used

A Simple Lili of the Valley Christmas Card!

Hello crafty peeps!
Today I have another simple Christmas card to share. I'm using this adorable Christmas Set
by Lili of the Valley. I think that many people overlook these acrylic stamps that LOTV have because the rubber ones are so stinking cute! But-- you are missing out on some great images in the other stamp categories. Great for the crafter who doesn't color and awesome for the mixed media artists out there! I used my inks from Fun Stamper Journey!

More Simple Christmas Cards!

Hi everyone!
I have another clean and simple card to share with you. I'm whipping these babies out.. I might actually send out Christmas Cards this year! I have used my Fun Stampers Journey star stamp that came in my starter kit. It's called Banner Party Stamp Set and has some fabulous matching dies to go with it! I didn't get a chance to order Christmas stamps so I'm showing simple and versatility. This can really be a card for ANY occasion. I hope you enjoy my little video. :) It's just under 2 minutes!

Create your own December Daily!

 Hi there everyone. It's time for my post on the Limor Webber Blog!
I decided to make my own December Daily. I love the way it came out. I just plan on typing out my daily dos and layering them on the page. Simple but it will get done this year!  Here's some photos and there's a video below. Check it out!
I also took the little mini files that come with the card boxes from Michaels and added them as pages, just for another type of element to the pages.
Here's the video I hope you enjoy it.
Have a fantastic day!
