My studio space

Well over the Christmas break I spent time reorganizing my studio. Here are pictures of my space. I just love my studio.

I was asked by several to post pics of my studio.

I hope you like my space and if ever in Ohio we should craft.

Christmas tag swap

I was in a tag swap in December and as you can imagine that the theme is Christmas.

My paired partner is Rox Boyce and I wanted to create a very special tag for her.

I have a huge soft spot toward snowmen and decided that would be what the focal point of the tag would be.

Here is the tag I created and love it. It was hard not to keep for myself and have in my personal project stash of kept items.

I hope you liked my tag I created and are enjoying the holiday season.

Canvas of mystery

I am working to get my blog up dated and for the life of me I can't remember who I made this canvas for.

This was made back in May but wanted to share my project.

Santa was very good to me this year. I got several items I have been really want for my studio. ...

#1 - I have eyed this cart at Meijer a long time and I got one YEA

This is great cause I have frequently used items at a hands length when I craft.

#2 - with Tim Holtz sizzix die release there were many I wanted and I got a great stash of them on Christmas

#3 - Tim Holtz distress sprays. I have eyes these for sometime since there release and I broke down and bought them with some Christmas money I got.

There were many other things I got this year but these are my top three favorites.

Happy holidays all and happy new year.

Anniversary card

Here is an anniversary card i made my partners parents this year. They hit the big 45 year mark.

I had always been wanting to use the petal drop sizzix die that I bought awhile back to make a heart. So I knew that would be the focal point.

Here is the card I created using several elements, textures and styles to honor them on this great achievement.

I hope you like.

Tim Holtz December tag -the last of the series for 2015.

Well I have to say Tim Holtz this is my absolute favorite tag that I made from your direction of the 12 tags of 2015.

I think the way you tied in all the different products and elements were amazing.

I improvised when doing several steps and love my end result.

If you haven't made this tag go check out Tim's blog and look for December tag of 2015. It is just so much fun to make and great way to continue with the festive spirit.

Season greetings everyone.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I have been quiet but 2015 I will be way more active. I also have a lot of blogging to catch up on from projects made in 2014 to get in my blog.

Cheers everyone.
