Welcome to my blog! I’m glad you stopped by. I’m a domestic goddess from southeastern Pennsylvania. I’m like the local ‘Martha Stewart’. I enjoy baking, crafting, photography and gardening the most. My family is small, but I think they are mainly happy with the house and grub.
Here are some of my favorite crafty projects I’ve made over the last few years-many my own design:
A mixed media painting, a mosaic frame of her parents and heart shaker for my mom; a mosiac message board I redid; a decorated key for a swap; a frame with a photo of me for a friend; a needle punch strawberry lidded mini basket; a Sally Sells Seashells by the Seashore shadowbox; & Christmas count down calendar.
I’ve been working on this project and share all my 4″ x 4″ collages here along with most of the Artist Trading cards I make too. I’ve made 100s of the later. And I’ve made many online pals through cross stitching too.
So I am participating in this event:
By the skin of my nose! I was one sick lady a few weeks ago with a bad appendix and pneumonia. I was in the hospital for 3 nights mainly because of the blasted pneumonia. I’m on the mend and made two of my giveaways just a few days ago.
This is a great way for other bloggers to meet and I believe I may have participated in at least 4 of these events and won a few prizes. : )
On to the goodies…
I made this special 4″ x 4″ collage card to commemorate the 5th One World, One Heart event. It has mostly handmade papers on it (bought).
I was really happy with how this glass heart shaped suncatcher turned out. I played around with Tim Holtz alcohol inks and a flower rubber stamp. The vintage bird (that belonged to my mom or grandmom)is what I think is a carved shell with an added diamond rhinestone eye. It’s so pretty in person and my husband really liked it!
I made a bunch of these at Christmastime. It’s a little bottle with a message that says ‘There’s no place like home for the holidays’. It has pretty orange sand and little shells inside too. I only gave my niece one so far, so if you win my giveaway, you get one too!
I also am adding the sparkly blue butterfly to the mix for your spring decorating.
All you have to do is leave me a comment and I may just pick your name on February 17th. Thanks and good luck! Special thanks to Lisa our terrific hostess!

I will randomly pick a number through an online generator on midnight the 17th.
This is a sticky post and will be on the top of my blog until the middle of February.
