Creatively Cricut!

I love my cricut! Just a couple of years ago, I remember several friends put on a board they found a great deal on a cricut expression and I went out and bought one - and there it sat, because I had no clue how to use it or what to do with it! It took one of my sons to actually just pick the thing up and start playing with it. He had no trouble creating with it. Leave it up to the techie generation to run with it (ha). Once Close to my Heart came out with their first Cricut cartridge I actually really started to play with the machine (by then it was sitting around for two years!). I finally realized how easy it was to really use it and what you could really create with it. Now I love it! If you have not used one yet - be careful, it can be addictive :).

Have fun!

Creating with Canvas

Make your own Canvas art! Love our new canvas frames! We have our 12 x 12 Workshop on the go kit or you can get our cute little 3x3 frames as they are featured in this video. My problem will be, I'll be running out of wall space to put all the cute things I can make with all this! Have fun ... :)

Hello and thank you for stopping by!

This is my first attempt on a blog - can you tell? I am sure you can. From what I have learned about blogs they are like an online journal and you are getting a peak into my soul ...

At this time I am trying to learn how to post my artwork with watermark and copyright and all that jazz -but I a, learning. My plan is to post my work and along with it I will explain what I used and how I made the project.

As we go along, I will also give you a peak into my life. I will share some pictures of my family, places we have been, places we have visited. So, please come back and visit often. Just know, that I am very new to this blogging thing! So, at this time - any help you can give me is highly appreciated in growing my skills in "blogging".

If you live close to me and you would like to join me in my craft place or one my crops please, check my calendar for any upcoming workshops!
