The Altered Paper Pocket Swap

I participated in a really fun pocket swap at Tee's blog The Altered Paper.  My swap partner was Wanda from Shop Just Vintage.  Wanda created the gorgeous cream and brown pocket.  I love all of the pretty details!  I have the pocket hanging in my nature/botanical area.  She also included some really awesome trinkets in the pocket that I can't wait to play with!  Thanks again Wanda!

Bloggerette Sorority Rush Project

Happy Sunday!  How is everyone on this beautiful day?  Today I'm posting my project for the Bloggerette Sorority Rush.  Everyone that is a member had the opportunity to create a project using the photo of those 5 beautiful women that is part of the Bloggerette Sorority logo.  You can see everyone else's projects HERE.   Becoming a Bloggerette Sister is easy and anyone can join!  Just sign up on the Bloggerette Sorority blog!   I sort of made a scrapbook layout.  I used my imagination and pretended that these 5 girls were models that traveled to and from Paris and London.   I  used a giant Bazzill tag as the base and went from there.  I added the laundry clips at the bottom and attached some pretty things to them.   I love how it turned out!  Thank you so much for taking a look!  Oh I forgot that I had to mention a few things about myself!  I live in Plainfield, IL with my husband Ed and my two fur babies Annie and Dexter.  I have a Master's Degree in School Counseling, but unfortunately there is no school counseling jobs out there.  I work as a special education assistant at a high school and I do love my job!  I'm fortunate to work with a bunch of great kids and staff.  In my spare time I like to garden, crafting, read, photography, and hike with the husband.

Glass Ornaments

Hi everyone!  As soon as I saw these heavy, glass ornaments on clearance at Z Gallerie and Hobby Lobby after Christmas, I knew I wanted to alter them in some way.  All I did was Modge Podge the back of the ornaments with some bird paper and a photo copy of Marie Antoinette, ta-da!  Thanks for coming over!
