I did finish these before Thanksgiving. I just haven't had time to post. There really are not a lot of options for thanksgiving decorations, so I figured I would make some. I really love how these turned out. I have so much to be thankful for!!!!!!!

It doesn't seem like I've had much time to play lately as the kids are pulling me in all directions. Finally, a day off today...just chillin with my "toys" and trying to figure out what my Christmas cards will look like. I want to use a new embossing folder that I got, but nothing seems to be working just right...maybe I'm just trying to hard...
Ok, switching over to a book cover and I want it to look like a wood door. It's coming out good so far...at least I can do something right!

Here's my first attempt at an art doll; her name is "Shatter". Really spooky, right? The idea for the glass skirt came to me tonight. I had already made the head "cage"' just wasn't sure who would be wearing this little gem. Well, here she is! Hee, hee...love her,

I've been working on this book for such a long time. For some reason, I really need time to think about the contents and how to decorate the pages. Then, wham! It all comes together. I hope you like this!
The cover was decorated with a glow-in-the-dark bat, some embossing and Splash of Color metallic rub in gold and copper.
Some of the paper used is from Somerset studios magazines, I just painted, etc. and added poems and text.
Most of the photos in this book were taken in Apple's photo booth. We always have a good laugh when taking these. This photo is of my two little ones and my niece Christine.
This photo was actually taken under water at one of my teenager's swim practices. Gold embossing was added as an accent.
This is a photo of "Mother", yes, me, without my makeup on....I really think this is a nice picture of me on one of my "witchiest" days...lol
You can probably tell that the shelves are made from the inside of a canvas. This was actually the easiest part to make. I had a blast finding/creating things to decorate the shelves. Check out the little cat on the bottom shelf, reading a spell book....I also colored a crystal (from Marfi) and added it to the middle shelf. Can you see the tiny tarot cards used! I have a whole deck of those too! Here's a close up of the shelves:

Hello! I just finished this canvas wall hanging with Viva Decor products. I went a little rogue and did not follow the instructions...the chipboard and canvas came in a kit. I added lots of sprays and some stamping to the pieces including on the canvas. I just love how this turned out. Gotta love Viva products; they never disappoint!

This is for an upcoming class I'm hosting this month. The book covers were made from chipboard and paint, creating a faux wood look. I used dictionary pages or the inside with tags and TH's stain in gold around the edges.

Hello!! This week I've been working a little bit most nights on he mermaid to get her done....and...drumroll ......I'm finally pleased with the results! Here she is:
She was created from sheet metal, caulking, acrylic paint and lots of Viva Decor products!! You will see Viva Inka Golds in her hair and eyes, over the caulking. I think they covered very well.

Don't you just love when things just fall together. I had bought this 8x8 shadow box and a couple 12x12 boxes and have had no idea what to do with them. Then I was browsing around on blogs last night and saw this great idea....just can't remember where...sorry! I think it was butterfly kisses blog...? Anyway, here it is! Love it!!! I think little baby will be making home in my kitchen.

I met with a friend in Albany last week and we spent some time shopping and creating. I had previously won some Graphic45 Secret Garden paper and used this time to create some spring albums. The first album is a Kaisercraft album that I've had in my stash for a long time. I played around with some crackle technique and metallic paint and patina...this paper is Fab!!
The second album is from Maya road; thought this little garden gate would again be perfect for a spring album....I'm thinking of putting pictures of the flowers from my garden on this one...like??
I'm actually working on a third album...yes, I know...but I'm not sick of the paper and I still have more to use!
