Art This Year

I can’t believe it has been so long since last time I blogged! I’ve been busy this year doing some online art classes – Wanderlust from Everything Art and Inspiration Wednesday with Donna Downey. So I thought I would share a few of the projects I’ve been working on. I was really pleased with this…

A Door Closes

Welcome to my last post as an Imagine If… Design Team Member!  It has been a good year – busy, varied and creative. This month the new products are windows, keys and locks – perfect for a little reminder! I started out with a ‘burlap canvas’ and all the lovely chipboard pieces.  I laid the…

Not My Circus

We’re hopping again!  You can start at the beginning at the Imagine If Blog, and if you’ve come from Katrina’s blog then you’re in the right place. I saw this saying recently: ‘Not My Circus, Not My Monkeys’, great way of putting it and something I need to remind myself!  And what better way than…

Twinchies!

Mother’s Day

This year for Mother’s Day gifts I decided to try something new, I’m calling them Inchie and a Half Boards. The squares are all 1 1/2 inches. I started out by collecting photos – seemed to be the hardest part!  But, with a bit of persistance, I managed to get a photo of everyone, then cropped them…
