Welcome to my blog and my creative space!! It is where I work and play, relax, watch TV, read, or just escape from everyday life. I have a major obsession with paper! I have way too much and really need to purge! Well, I need to purge more than paper but just can't part with it! I have been scrapbooking since 1996 and teach scrapbook and mixed media classes. I like to dabble in anything crafty or scrappy! It makes my heart happy! I have had another blog for years but neglected it badly so I came from MY OLD BLOG HERE If you go to that blog you will find posts from a few other Where Bloggers Create events. So happy that KAREN does this! I'm going to post, link then stalk!!! Can't wait to see the other spaces out there! Follow me if you please, I'm going to be posting things I make here and plan to do a much better job that before!! Thanks for stopping! Please leave a comment so I can come see you! God Bless!!

This is my main place to work and get messy. I have all my painting supplies at hand as well as my Faber-Castell markers, pencils, stamps and such.
This one totally speaks for itself! :-) Love Teresa Collins and Love my eBosser!!

I keep my paper pads here and other misc. supplies

My girl made from a Christy Tomlinson stamp, some markers - they are in a plastic toilet paper holder that I refinished with some pretty paper.

Some more original artwork - the framed one is a postcard of a Mindy Lacefield painting that came in one of the Somerset magazines I ordered long ago.

Another original... I LOVE joint compound and this is made using just that! I will be offering an online class soon teaching this technique! Be watching for that announcement very soon!!

This chair was beautiful but the chair pad was covered in hideous fabric. I recovered it with  an apron I cut apart. It is from the  Full Circle Exchange (this is a lovely place to visit and such meaning behind the products! Please go HERE and check it out!)

Supplies and yes! MORE paper!!

Glitter, Liquitex mediums, misc things

Close up of my main work space. The tray with stamps was found at a flea market, I saw it and grabbed it up and held on tight! Wasn't gonna let that baby get away from me!!

Paper, stamps, stickers, stencils, more misc. supplies

My antique curio cabinet my hubby got for me... loaded with my favorite things. The next few pictures are what is inside- some things I've made, some are just collected things over the years..

Music box that my hubby got me for Christmas one year. It is bears on a sewing machine that plays Christmas music. Different, but I treasure it for sure!!

Christmas and Halloween things that are my favorites- I couldn't stand to put them away for a whole year, so I kept a few out to enjoy all year.

My attempt at a  Faux Cake

I made these, well I covered some cheap Dollar Tree round containers and gave them detail with pretty papers, washi  tape, and glass glitter.
This was a great find! Bought cheap and painted with chalk paint and then distressed it. It holds my dies and punches and some things I've made. This makes me a VERY happy crafter!!

Where I peek into blog land, a bulletin board made from an ugly yardsale picture frame that I painted and added my old bulletin board to... you can see some Kelly Rae Roberts here and the red wings are my Ode to JUNK GYPSIES. Love them, their style and their show!
Made from the BEST APP EVER - from Rhonna Farrer - Go check out here BLOG HERE for more details! (The frames and little added elements are from her app. I took all the pictures with my phone, edited them and added the elements and frames right on my phone from the app, saved them, emailed them to myself and saved to my computer.)
Please let me know you were here and follow me if you would, I would love to come and see your space. 
God Bless!!
