Getting in Gear...


I love this card style! On the front is an aceo-sized woodburning that can be removed and saved! http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=7262028

Breathing Heavy...

I just signed on to do my first ever craft show! Never thought about doing one before because I just couldn't imagine watching my pop-up cards open and close, over and over again! Pop-up cards are fragile things! As a compromise, I plan on having a table full of ther things, with just a few sample pop-ups and a portfolio of the rest for custom orders. We'll see how it goes...

Some "Scrappy" Organization!

Love the see-thru wire baskets for the storage of tiny paper pieces. You can see each color, and it's very sturdy!

Back to my "roots" here...


One of my favorite things to do is draw historic architecture. I have a whole wall of them in my kitchen! In this case, a request for a Gustav Stickley design gave me the chance to woodburn this little drawing from his Craftsman publication...

Harvest Time


I really like the way this one came out - without the bow! So the bow is only pinned on instead of sewn. Let the buyer decide!

A Flip Card with a Twist...

....Literally! This snowflake appears suspended in mid-air. When you open the card it does a little spin - see the Utube video above!

I an constantly on the lookout for small, flat items that are also useful to have as promos, stocking stuffers etc. These fit the bill perfectly!

What's with all the Baskets?


Well, I want to sell them of course, but I'm also making some to display my items at a craft fair. I thought they would be a nice and colorful way to draw attention to my table!
