Mini Canvases

Good evening!  OK,  I'm totally addicted to these mini canvases.  They are so much fun to make and they are a great way to get rid of extra pieces, scrap ribbon, and excess stash. The sizes are 2X2, 3X3, and 4X4.   Just think of the possibilities.  I bought my blank canvases at Archivers, Hobby Lobby, and Dick Blick Art Supplies.  You can trade them like an ATC, give them as gifts, hang them on a wall, or display them in a cute bowl.  Thanks for looking!

Pretty Things!

Hi!  In the month of February I participated in a Valentine swap from Swapdex.  My partner for the swap was the very talented fiber artist Perri.  Her blog is Stitches from the Bush.  What she made for me were three beautiful little trinkets: a pin cushion, sweet little wall hanging, and the scissor charm/fob.  Thanks again Perri!  The other event I participated in was One World One Heart hosted by Lisa at A Whimsical Bohemian.  I had loads of fun visiting blogs from all over the world. By Visiting Angie's blog Meriscrapper13's Cottage  I won this gorgeous bird charm that is now hanging from a bird collage that I had made.  Thank you Angie!

Mini Album

Happy Sunday everyone!  I've been wanting to post this for awhile.  I participated in a mini album swap earlier this month and this was the album I made.  Bea from California chose Sweet Spring for her theme and this is what I came up with.  I used everything from my own stash.  I mixed a little new with a little vintage and a touch of whimsy.  I love it so much, I think I'm going to make one for myself!  Thanks for looking!

One World One Heart

Hi everyone! My name is Kelly and I'm so excited to be participating in my first One World One Heart worldwide event!  One World One Heart is a worldwide event for bloggers that was started 5 years ago by Lisa at A Whimsical Bohemian.  This is a great opportunity to meet fellow bloggers from all over the world and to win some really great door prizes.  To read more about One World One Heart and to participate you can click here.  This is a list of fellow bloggers who are participating.  I love making a mess in my craft room and at the moment I love altering bottles and getting dirty with hot glue, paint, and glitter!  Did I mention that I'm addicted to lace and spending hours at the local antique mall with my sister and brother looking for the next great thing to alter or spending an hour going through boxes of old snapshots and cabinet cards making up our own stories about that particular photo.  

At the end of the event on February 17th I will be giving away this beautiful bottle so please leave a comment and make sure your comment links back to you or leave your email address.  Thanks for coming by and spending a few minutes at my little blog!
