First of all....

Happy birthday to my sweet Ava! She is 4 years old today! I took this pic this morning (8am to be exact) before she opened her presents. She just woke up and had to put her Princess dress on over her Hannah Montana pjs! She is a Princess after all! I love you Ava!





















I have a few cool things to announce this morning but I will wait until I share my creations! This set is a 3x3 card with a paper bead bracelet. I did it showcasing the Ornate Tooled Leather BG from Starving Artistamps (as well as a few other people) and we are hoping it gets picked up and put in a mag. If it does happen, it would be my first time being published! Say a prayer!


  • STAMPS- Ornate Tooled Leather BG, Alpha (Starving Artistamps)
  • PAPER- DCWV blue, black CS
  • INK- Brilliance black
  • OTHER- Copic blue marker, black ribbon, Word Window punch


All of the ingredients are the same for the bracelet but I also used a Mulberry Prima (2 coats of Modge Podge) and a blue bead.

If anyone would like the directions on how to make paper beads or a paper bead bracelet then just leave a comment here saying so and I will do a tutorial for you! And I promise I won't make you wait forever! I'll get to it early next week.

************************
Now for the ENABLING!! Yes, you heard me right!!! Right now smARTworks is having 35% off ALL of their stamps in stock!!! At the moment, every stamp they have is in stock but some are in limited quantities, so if you want it, you better get it now! If any of you have waited to get Dina's Birdie Fun birds, order then NOW!!!!! Sorry, am I being to pushy? Really though, at that price and with how awesome they are, you can't avoid them. Just go with the flow. Just go with the flow. Here is a link directly to the darling birdies! You also need to check out the rest of the sets that Susan has in her Catty! A-MA-ZING!

************************
I wanted to thank you all for the well wishes you left! I feel much better today but even yesterday I was still feeling pretty crummy. Glad to be better though for my baby's birthday! Hope all of you have an wonderful weekend! Spring is near, I can feel it!
