If the Shoe Fits


Creative Crafty Friends has kept me plenty busy this month. Hahaha! I finished up four swaps yesterday – here is one! The Letter S. I interpreted that to mean shoes. Hahaha! You can never have too many shoes! I began with a 2.5″ x 3.5″ watercolor ATC base, a couple Tombow Fudenosuke Neon brush pens… Continue Reading

Traveling Journals

Donuts, Anyone?


A Creative Crafty Friends swap saw me combining Hahnemühle paper with Joggles product and having one great time playing with both! The swap called for us to make one index card size piece of art that included a person, a number and a piece of a book page. Easy peasy! I wanted a paper that… Continue Reading

Zentangle in Living Color


I originally had this posted a couple days ago but took it down to do a little work on the post. Then the whole post got lost so I am starting over. This past week I had the opportunity to take an online class taught by Heidi Halpern Kay, who also goes by HK Tangler… Continue Reading

Alligator Starts With A!


Today I was working on a Letter A ATC for a swap in Creative Crafty Friends. Life has been really busy and I needed some ‘me’ time. I am afraid I opted for a bit too much ‘me’ time as I signed up for seven swaps after saying I might not do them this year…. Continue Reading
