  1. You ladies out did yourselves. Great projects!

  2. What a wonderful array of styles and skills! Corrine Marie's chalkboard house is delightful - would make a the perfect "refrigerator hanger" to keep a running grocery list! As usual, Barbara Rankin's work just knocks me out (yes, I'm a fan!) - and something tells me she gets her love of visual crafts from Mom who must do a lot of fabric work! I love all the embellishments and decorations - and, as I always end up saying, it comes down to Barbara's unerring eye for composition to really make her art jump and announce itself! Lyneen James' retro design is a delight. Were women ever truly that happy to receive an automatic dishwasher or clothes washer? The lady in her pictures looks happy as a lark and just as ready to burst into song! Another piece that shows great composition and use of materials.

    Thanks for sharing your talents with us...I feel inspired! Happy Mother's Day to all of you - and if you're not a mother, then Happy Mother's Day to YOUR mother!

    1. Thanks for your kind words, Tristan. Means a lot coming from a talented artist such as yourself.

The Gift Card Card

Robin here and today I have a project for you that is a fun way to give gift cards or cash.  

You will need two envelopes for this project.  One is what the post office calls the 6 1/4 Commercial envelope.  When I was growing up we just called it a letter envelope.  It's a smaller rectangle than the #10, being just 3 5/8" x 6 1/4".  The other is a standard A6.  I chose the A6 because it fits inside the letter envelope when it's folded in half and it's also large enough to hold a check or cash, as well as a gift card.

With the flap against the body of the envelope, fold it in half from side to side.  Cut the flap in half and trim the inside cuts at an angle so that they don't interfere with the fold or get bunched up. 

Decorate the flap side of your envelope.  This will be the inside of your card.  Fold the envelope again and decorate the side that will be the front of your card.

Cut a panel of card stock to fit inside the 6 1/4 Commercial (letter) envelope.  Att…

Pretty Little Trees of all colors

Make adorable ornaments or decor items.

YOU can make the most colorful trees to fit your style and home.  Surprise someone with a color coordinated gift too!
I did different techniques for dyeing the sisal trees from AlteredPages.  We have 3 inch and 4 inch sizes in natural cream color available.

# 1 Technique used simple food coloring.  Yep, just like dyeing Easter Eggs!

I used an empty glass jar filled with water and dropped about 4 to 5 of green food coloring in and stirred it well.   I then placed a tree in the water.  The sisal is just like jute, so it absorbs the color easily.   I allowed it to be submerged for a minute and took it out.  The first dipping was paler than I wanted, so back into the water!

I did the same with red food coloring and added blue to the green for an aqua, as above.   Depending on how many drops of color you add to the water and how long you leave them submerged will determine the intensity of color.  Pull them out of the water after 30 seconds and check for …
