The Crochet Stool

I love granny squares, so when I saw this pattern I knew I had to make it. First I had to find a stool. I ended up getting one from Amazon, after searching eBay for just the right thing.

Melody Ross's new class: Soul Comfort

Thinking of signing up for Melody Ross's new class Soul Comfort as I've had a great success with her other classes. I LOVE the idea of  portable crafts anyway and I've been art journaling all weekend...
This is what happens when you outline your hand with a brush marker...

LOVE Journal It! by Jenny Doh... lots of good ideas! Hurray for the library!

Prepped a ton of pages by gluing them together with soft gel medium. I finally have space to work! I cleaned a larger area so my journal almost fits my working area now. Baby steps, like not melting the glue stick with the heat gun when doing iced enamels!

Grunge & Glamour Cuff with Kristen Robinson

Catching up! Took 2 great classes at Smitten Dust near Lansing with Kristen Robinson... AMAZING!!! And the experience has FINALLY broken through my many-month-long creative block. Lots more coming as I've cleaned up both studios, burned the paint off a pile of Altoid boxes and ordered a big batch of Ice Resin!

A new Stitch!

Used my Christmas gift money on pattern books, fun yarn and swirly plastic crochet hooks... lots of color on a very dark winter day!  Just figured out a new stitch too: a little more lacey than what I've been doing...

Apothicary Madness

I'm really into making the apothecary bottles that everyone is into right now. The labels are fun to make, the bottles fun to find and its all very Halloween! Laura Carson has a great series of tutorials going on right now on her blog. There's also great labels at Alpha Stamps and some great rub-on's at Stampington. Shown here is my remake of an old label for your enjoyment. If you make something wonderful with it, please email me a picture! I'd love to see it!
