Good morning!  Hope everyone is staying warm and you’re not buried under feet of snow.  We’ve had our first major snowstorm for the year and it’s been bitterly cold . . . let’s hope it warms up for all of us soon!

During the last month, I’ve been working on some favors for my sorority province meeting . . .  wish I had gotten a picture of the completed box.  I die cut and made some fabric flowers that were attached to the front of a take-out box which we put a few treats in.

I’ve also taken the time to organize and clean my work space.  I’m so glad I did . . . I finally feel that I have a room that suits me and that I actually like working in.  (If you follow me on Facebook, you can see all the photos there!)

I have a few projects in the beginning stages for Ken Oliver using his new products.  Love his new Color Burst!  These will be hopefully finished over the upcoming weekend and I’ll have a few things to share next week.

The last few days I’ve been working on a project for Quietfire Design.


I used lots of old product that I’ve had in my stash for some time:  An old Darcie’s Offset Square Shadowbox Frame, GrungePaper, Tattered Floral die (I know . . . don’t faint).  I also used some new Graphic 45 paper I picked up at CHA, Artisan Style, and a Quietfire stamp.  Please hop over to the Quietfire Creations Blog, check out all the details and more photos.  I would love it if you could leave me a comment over there and let Suzanne know you visited!

Thanks for stopping by today!

Good morning!   Now that CHA has started and the first day is over, I’m free to show you some of the projects I’ve done for the Spellbinders™ booth.  The one I’m going to show you today has a special place in my heart.

I know I’ve told you that my daughter, Kate, is pregnant with our first grandchild.  What I’ve not been free to say too much about, is that it’s A GIRL!!!!!!!  (Well at least that’s what the ultrasound tech said . . . I’m gonna believe her.  Plus the day I went to the doctor with her, the baby’s heart rate was fast – 140+.  Now it has been my experience with my girls that their heart rates were fast and everyone I knew that had boys the heart rates were 130- . . . SO I’m going with the IT’S A GIRL thing!)

So in honor of my granddaughter, this is one of my projects (and hopefully I’ll get it back one day and it still looks in pretty good shape).


I altered one of the $1 Michael frames by painting it Antique White and then covering it in Graphic 45’s Little Darling Collection.  The new baby’s picture can easily be inserted in the frame and the tag at the top of the frame will be perfect to record all the vital information . . . name, date, weight, height . . .


The flowers were made with the new Blossoms Five, the flourishes are from the new Venetian Motifs and the butterfly from Jewel Flowers and Flourishes.


The edges of the flowers were sponged with Chiffon Mix’d Media Inx, misted with water, shaped and then dried with the heat gun.  Once they were assembled, a little Glossy Accents was added to the edges and sprinkled with Diamond Dust Fine Vintage Glass Glitter.


All of a sudden I have a reason to love this Graphic 45 collection . . . who would have thunk!

That’s it for today . . .  I’ve got one more to show you tomorrow.  Thanks for stopping by and remember . . .  life is short, enjoy the adventures that come your way today!
