Staying In

Hello My Friends! I hope this finds each one of you safe and well. This is a very scary and trying time for all of us. I have faith we will get through it if we are not selfish and do as we are instructed to do (staying in and away from others)…

I have not created in about six weeks or more. At the beginning of March, I started going through 17 years of scrapbooks, memorabilia, photos, artwork from children, baby calendars, etc. etc. I am scanning all my children’s school portraits and important pictures and events, a long with my favorite’s that always tug at my heartstrings when I look at them.

It is a HUGE task and taking me down memory lane as I read and re-live so many memories. I am slowly downsizing in “hopes” to move somewhere smaller. Part of it is hard to let go, and the other a relief to give my works of art and cataloging to someone else to enjoy! This is a good time to take the task on and finally do it.

I hope you are finding hobbies and projects to keep yourselves busy. I never have a problem being “bored” like so many complain about. There is always something that needs to be completed.

I hope in the coming weeks to share more art with you. Hopefully, the bulk of my project will be done by then. If you follow my page on Facebook, I have been trying each day to share art from the archives.

Stay safe. Be well.

Beautiful Photowall Art

Recently, I was contacted by Photowall to select one of their beautiful wall murals, wallpaper or other canvas art and share it on my blog and social media accounts. I selected a gorgeous canvas that arrived from Sweden within a few days. The most difficult thing was selecting the print from the gigantic collection of images to choose from!

When the canvas arrived, it really was easy to put together. . It took roughly about 20 minutes. It is easier if you have a friend or family member assemble it with you.

The canvas I selected purposely to have a POP of color. I decided to put it in my art studio area above a small table I use for sewing or other projects. I think it really highlights the area and the colors are just what is needed here in Michigan (especially this time of year)…

We will be offering my blog readers a 25% discount on any purchase from now through March 8, 2020.

I hope you can stop by and see the amazing items they have to offer!

Making Cards

Happy Birthday My Sweet!

On this very wintry day, I am sharing this little card with all of you. There has not been a lot of creative time for me this month, but this was something fun that I did recently.

I am also sharing some of my favorite adhesives that have not changed in 20 years. They were found when I started scrapbooking and they have stuck with me ever since. I love to use the Vario tabs to secure things in all 4 corners of paper projects I make. The Zig Two Way glue pen is run between where the tabs are set. A recent find for me is using the Scor-Tape. For many years, I had trouble finding a good double sided tape and this does the trick. Love it so much!

I hope this little adhesive secrets help you as well in your Paper Crafts!
