Happy Halloween!

This is as scary as it gets for me :)

Dr. Suess and Christmas

Or maybe Target?

This year's version is smaller, and centered in a circular "Peace" stamp.

Festive Post-Its

This is a great way to use those 12x12 sheets with large images on the border.

Off the Paper

A little dimension added to the dove helps to create the illusion of flying.

Paper piecing...

New for this year. Each 'petal was handcut, glittered, and layered to create the pinecones. I literally went into the back yard for a branch and pinecone to copy!

More Fun with Punches.

I can't seem to stop buying them, so when I can use six of them for the same card design, I'm happy!

Flowerbox for the Holidays

The hardest part about making this card? It's the envelope. Because this uses a rubberband mechanism, the envelope needs to be strong, like a rigid photo mailer. Unfortunately the premade ones for CDs are too small.

This Card Needs a Pine Scent!

Simple in design, but a little time consuming. Made from punches. A lot of punches.

Crazy Busy!

My snowman snowglobe is back! He's so much fun to make, too!

Colorfest - Thurmont, Maryland

This pic doesn't even hint at how crowded it actually was! Over 350 craft vendors were set up, not including all the yard sales. It was 3 deep in front of every tent, and there was no indication that the economy had turned here!

More Fur!

Over fifty pieces of paper in each of these Iris folded cards...

Just for Fun...

I couldn't resist adding this neon faux fur trim. Makes me smile :)

An expected 6000+ cyclists converged in Maryland today for this 100 mile bike ride. (I was just a spectator.)

Community Market Festival

My son gets comfortable before it started.
