Hello Everyone,

Thank you visiting my website today.

Let me start off by saying Happy New Year. May you all have blessed year.

I am in the process of setting up my online store. I have a few things already available. I will be updating items and adding items as I get them photographed. I also discovered that I need to add descriptions to the items for sale.

Please have patience with me as I go through this process. This is new to me so any feedback you can provide is very welcome.

You can access my online store by clicking here.

If you would like any custom made items, contact me directly so that we can work out the details.

Until next time.

Happy Crafting!

Heartfelt Creations, What can I say about them except that their products are fantastic! I love them so much I became a Platinum member. 

I just can't get enough of their products. They have stamp sets and dies that work with their paper pads. The die cuts can even cut out some of the items from the paper pads, so that you do not even have to color them. All you have to do is cut them out.

I made this card for my daughter for her 29th birthday. I used the classic rose stamp set, die cuts, and paper.

Holidays are Coming

Hello Everyone,

I  don't know about you, but I really need to get started on making my Christmas cards. I have already completed step one. Which is to make a list of who you want to send them to.

I have an idea of how I am going to make them, it's just a matter of stamping the trees and then coloring them. I want to try a new method I learned this year in a workshop at 'The Cat's Meow' in Oakhurst, California. They offer some awesome classes there. I also bought a cool product that should make my trees look like they have snow on them. I still have to play around with it a little more before I use it on my cards. I will post a picture of my 2015 Christmas card when I get one done.

Projects are taking longer to do these days, but I am working through it. Taking my time and taking numerous breaks to rest my hands.

Take care everyone.

Happy Crafting,


Working on some new Projects

Posted on November 2, 2013 at 3:18 AM Comments comments (3)
Hello Internet World, 

Happy November! Happy Birthday to everyone who celebrates a birthday this month.

It is getting close to the Thanksgiving holiday already. Where did this year go. I have been trying to do a project a month, but with school and work taking up most of my time, it's been difficult this year. I was able to get quite a bit done this summer, but not as much as I would have liked to. Sometimes there is just not enough time to get everything done.

I will get pictures posted soon of the projects I completed this summer.

I am currently working on some new things and will get them posted once they are completed.

Thank you for visiting.

Good Morning Crafty World,

I just wanted to wish everyone a wonderful Monday. It's nice to have a morning where I don't feel rushed to get to work. I actually woke up on time. :)

I am waiting for some fireline to arrive in the mail so that I can finish a project. I am really hoping that it arrives today.

I have finished a few projects and will be posting them soon.

I will also post the picture of my current project once it's complete. It has a butterfly theme. It's going to be cute I think.

Well, time to start my day.

Have a wonderful Monday, and happy crafting!

Hello Fellow Crafters,

It's time for me to start seriously cleaning house. I am in the process of preparing some items for sale. I will be posting them this coming weekend. There will be some jewelry, various craft kits, plastic canvas whole sheets and cut into strips in various colors. There will also be some beads, homemade cards. Who knows what else I may find. I may even cut up some more of my scraps to make blocks for quilting.

You'll just have to come back and take a look.

As always, I thank you for visiting and hope you come back for another visit.

Take care and Happy Crafting!


Project #2 of ?...complete

Posted on August 8, 2011 at 2:25 AM Comments comments (8)
Project #2, completed 7/26/11

I have finished kit #2 called Seaside Ensemble.  I hope you like it.  It was fun and really easy to make.

I'm not sure about the hook on the necklace.  I haven't used them before.  We'll see how it goes.  I may have to redo the necklace with a type of latch.

This is the latch that came in the kit.  If I redo it, I will post an updated picture.

Let me know what you think.

I am currently working on Project #3 of ?.  Hope to have it done before school starts again on the 15th.

Thank you looking and happy beading.

Hello Everyone and thank you for stopping by today. 

I recently finished a bracelet using memory wire.  It looks pretty cool.  First time I have used it.  It actually was a kit that I found among all my craft kits that I forgot I had. 

This kit I obtained over a year ago through one of those kit of the month clubs.  No, I had to cancel the subscription, because I was getting too far behind.

I have several goals that I would like to accomplish this year, one, of which, is to complete as many project kits that I can that have been in my closet for who knows how long.  Yes, probably as long as this bracelet kit.  ;)

I also have kits that I have started and for some reason or other, they remain unfinished. 

I purchased some unfinished projects from ebay last year.  They were unfinished because the person who had started them passed away.  I don't want to be one of those people who has a lot of unfinished projects that my loved ones will have to worry about getting rid of after I'm gone. 

I had finished another beading project, a set of peacock earrings.  I gave them away to a co-worker who really loves peacocks as much as I do.  She was the only person who noticed them that day.  :)  Once I had given them to her, I realized that I had forgotten to take a picture of them.  I did, however, have enough to make another one, with only having to purchase a few supplies to complete the set.  Once I complete the second pair, I will post them on here as well.

I am also working on a peacock necklace.  I just love the colors with the blues, greens, aqua, etc.

Well, I must go for now.  I have a lot of work to do.  Not only working on my goal for the year but also school work.

Thank you for reading and happy crafting!


Storing your Crafty supplies

Posted on July 10, 2011 at 8:18 PM Comments comments (3)

Hello Everyone,

Ok... I admit that after all this time, my crafty room can still use some help. Any ideas that don't cost a fortune? Just when I start make headway, I lose my footing and things start looking messy again. Why do I do that to myself? I just drive myself crazy...

Anyway, I do what I can. I try not to buy new things, but sometimes it's really hard. I"m sure you know what I'm talking about. You see something that really catches your eye and you think to yourself, I have to buy that now. Because if I don't buy it now, it won't be here when I come back later. Well...    I have been trying to tell myself to wait, maybe even write the item down on a piece of paper and put it in my purse. If I'm still thinking about it 3 or 4 days later, then I'll go back and get it. I have, however, found that I can live without whatever it was I thought I just had to have. A lot of time I totally forget about it. I bought some paper from Walmart with roses on it. Really pretty paper. I came home and put it away. I have used only a few sheets of it. Well, I was at Walmart about a month ago and saw this really pretty rose paper. I told myself to wait and to follow my new waiting period rule. Well, I wound up buying the paper anyway. I told myself that the paper was so pretty, that they may run out and I would miss the opportunity to get any of it. Well, when I got home and went to put it away, it turned out that I already had that same pad of rose paper at home. So now I have twice as much. My boyfriend calls it impulse buying. Well, I hate to say it, but I think he's right. But don't tell him I said that. Wink, Wink. :)


I know it's only few weeks into the new year, but so far so good. Hope the same goes for you all.

Well, I hate to cut this short, but I need to get some software loaded on my computer for one of my classes this semester.

Thanks again for visiting and Happy Crafting!


February 2012

Hello Everyone

I am starting to feel a bit overwhelmed by trying to organize my crafty supplies.  I have supplies for beading, sewing, quilting, counted cross stitching, buttons (LOTS OF BUTTONS!), polymer clay, rubber stamping, paper, stickers, which you can never have too much of, and who know what else.

I have been using those white plastic drawers that you can purchase from a number of stores.  I happened to purchase mine at Wal-mart.

I am always searching for a better solution where I would have everything within my fingertips when needed.  Well, I found such a product.  It is 'The Workbox'.  I will be working to save enough money to get one as it would clean up all the storage containers I have here and there and put them into one convenient location.  it also has a table that folds out when the unit is opened so that you can work right next to your supplies.  Also available with this unit are bags that velcro to the one of the inner walls so you can put a project in and grab as you go.  I can't wait to get mine.  I have placed a link at the bottom of this page for you to check it out for yourself.  You can't help but fall in love with them.  They even have one for your sewing machine.

I will be removing my current sewing table as the only thing it holds is my sewing machine.  The rest of the sewing table top is just a catch all.  How many of you can relate to that?  Please tell me that I'm not the only one who does that...  :)

I have added a few pages, this blog page being one of them.  Let me know if there is anything in particular you would like to talk about.  I don't know everything, but I would be willing to find out for you.

Thank you looking and I look forward to hearing from you.

If the link doesn't work for some reason, let me know.  I am new to adding links to my pages.

Thanks again!
