January is 1/2 OVER!!!

Are all of your Holiday decorations packed away?     Go ahead and shame me, look at me with that smug look of are you a slacker?  Well, I guess I am!  

I am still working on my mine, trying to purge as I pack!   EEEK.

We are filling a trash can, getting donations ready and laundering mountains of Holiday linens and clothing.   And we have cut back by 2/3 OMGOSH!    


We have new kits coming for you!   We will be showcasing Banners you will adore, more Valentines projects and St Pat's Day fun!   Make sure to visit this week.   You will enjoy seeing the previews on Facebook. 

The lovely LAMP project you saw this week from Stephanie will be offered as a kit with optional themes including Valentines Day, Steampunk and Shabby Chic.

Also coming up are truly fun KITS with tart tins with wooden spools you will love to make and give!   Add sweet collages.glitter and you will have the PERFECT Spring project.  

AND Our Senior Design Artist TRISHA NEAL will be making you swoon with her fabulous banners for spring and beyond.  

Having a Tea Party?  Baby Shower?  Entertaining?

Stay tuned for new items, fun projects and new plans!

 Handy Tip for Artists, Recyclers and Neat Freaks! I have a follow-up to the Citra-Sol method for creating fabulous background pages and collages.   I bought a big bag of navel oranges and realized I had the ingredients to make my own solvent!   Simply take a clean glass jar, peel the rind from the oranges and place all the rind/peels, without the pulp (tangerines, oranges, navels) into the jar.   Pour enough vinegar over the peels to cover them.    Allow the jar to sit for a week or two and VOILA!     You have made your own solvent for literally pennies.    You will notice the liquid getting a bit thicker than the plain vinegar and it does not smell bad!!! I now have a  HUGE jar on the window sill!       Be careful and only use this after testing on a safe spot.
