About Me

My photo
I am a stay-at-home mom. I have been married to my handsome and wonderful husband for over 14 years. Right now he's battling stomach/esophagus cancer. So I do my best to craft when I can. I have two wonderful boys. My oldest, Garett, is 24 and served 5 years in the Navy. He's been home since the beginning of the year (2014). We are very proud of him. My youngest, "DJ", is 13 and in the 8th grade. I have two Border Collie mix dogs (Koda and Rugu), one Calico cat (Hydie), one orange Tabby cat (Bosley), one Tea Cup Chihuahua (Gigi...I LOVE her sooo much), a Chiweinnie (Lily....sweetest dog ever), and a Jack Russell/Chihuahua (Connor....AAALL boy).

Mountain Plains Crafters and ADORNit Blog Hop

Hey there everyone!!!  Welcome to our Coloring Blog Hop.  Sponsored by....

Welcome to the Adornit and Mountain Plains Crafters Blog Hop!

We're featuring the brand new ArtPlay Paintables which include themes for Halloween, Christmas, Flowers, Critters, Faith and more; 12 brand new pages to color with multiple images on each sheet.  They're perfect for watercoloring, markers, colored pencils and more.  Use them in multiple ways - cardmaking, scrapbooking, treat boxes, tags..... you're only limited by your imagination!

Now here's the details of this AWESOME hop...Each blog will have a special word that you need to collect and form a phrase, to be entered to win a fabulous prize from ADORNit. At the end of the blog...go back to ADORNit's site to enter all your clue words.


My first project is repurposing used dryer sheets and turning them into "spider webs".

 The photo below are supplies that I started to use but wasn't happy so minus the 3D Glossy Glue.
 Softly stretch the dryer sheet in a zig zag direction.

Take Craft Bond Spray Adhesive and spray the surface of your card.
 Stretch out the dryer sheet and place on the card.  Sprinkle lightly with glitter in desired areas if you want.
 Trim edges of leftover dryer sheets.
Then attach all your embellishments to your card :)
My ArtPlay piece is from the sheet called Wicked by Artist Lindsay Ostrom.

My next project...I'm really happy about :)

 With my Silhouette, I cut out a pop-up gift card box.
 And how cute would it be for your message to pop up on one of these adorable ArtPlay cards?  But with THIS particular card...I went one step further...

 Aaah that good old phrase..."Trick or Treat...smell my feet...give me something good to eat."  My ArtPlay piece is from the sheet called Wicked by Artist Lindsay Ostrom.
 So what better thing to eat but a night at McDonalds for dinner?  I just attached the cards to each other with some double sided scotch tape.

My third project was something I've wanted to make for quite some time.  I made this from cuts from my Silhouette and stickers from WalMart.  My ArtPlay piece is from the sheet called Wicked by Artist Lindsay Ostrom.  But I just realized I forgot to make my October and November Tag LOL.  So it helps if you have a month for your calendar.  :)

I'm adding a 4th project...I know...kinda late.  But it's so cute.

This is a tag I made using a darling image by Carolee McMullin on the sheet called Adventure.  I looove this sheet.  And I found some paper to go with it perfectly.

Thank you EVERYONE for stopping by and having a look.  I hope I inspired you from one of my projects.  Comments are much loved and all read.  Have a GREAT day.

My clue word is:  therapy
