My new Whimsy Shop!

I'm very excited to announce the opening of my new craft shop where I will be selling my handmade jewelry, acrylic paintings and my new polymer clay buttons!

Huge thanks to the super talented and awesome Kristine for putting the entire site together for me in one day....all I asked was that there was hot pink and lime green....and voilĂ ! She built this perfect store (with new logo) that was EXACTLY what I wanted :) If it wasn't for all her hard work, this would have just been a passing thought on a Sunday morning...

Please wander over to the shop and take a look, if you are looking for any specific buttons/paintings/jewelry please email me, Custom orders always welcome!

I have a secret....

And I'm not going to give in to bribery, so don't even try to tempt me with chocolate or scrappy supplies! LOL I've been working on a new endeavour with the wonderful and talented Kristine's help...but its not *quite* ready until the big reveal, here's the project I worked on in between classes at the Paws Crop a few weeks ago:

Creative Scrappers October Afternoon kit, again, Kristine totally rocked this design! Loving the October Afternoon papers (I just ordered their new monster line called NightLight, too cute)

Enjoy, and I'll be back with my exciting (to me anyway lol) news in a few days

A Button Here, a Button Everywhere!

I've been dabbling into an old hobby of mine these last few weeks....polymer clay! All of my tools and supplies have been sitting on a shelf, I finally dusted them off and got my hands dirty. It began with a bit of online inspiration, and now I seem to be swimming in mushrooms LOL

And here are a few flowers and green leaves I made yesterday:
And finally, my favorite little owl...He's a bit heavy to add to a scrapbook page, I may have to glue a magnet on him and put him up on the fridge :) (I plan on attempting more owls, but with less clay...more scrapbook friendly critters)

Last weekend was spent at the Paws Crop, my very first crop since I took up Scrapbooking 6 months ago. Loved every minute of it, especially the two classes I took with the phenomenal Kathy Thompson Laffoley. I'll post more on the crop tomorrow, as I'm hoping not to run out of day light to get photos of my class layouts! (which is what happened tonight while taking these photos....the days are definitely getting shorter)

Until tomorrow!

These Girls

Here is a Layout I did last week....I've had this fabulous photo for years, and I've always treasured it :) Such a cool photo for two of the coolest girls I know.

These Girls are phenomenal, such wonderful friends, such beautiful women.

Shout out to WN and G!
