I'm still on the craft high from this weekend so here's a couple of pages that I stayed up all night working on. Its so hard to go to bed when there's this little craft bug buzzing in your ear.
Welcome One and All
Welcome to our Blog! This is going to be so much fun! This blog is not limited to just one type of craft. While our favorite is scrapbooking (layouts and cards), we venture into altering items, painting, decopage art, and much much more. We're always up for trying something new and for making our mark on the world. Hope you enjoy our projects and are able to draw lots of inspiration and make your own mark!

Here is a picture of my dear friends little girl. She is so cute and its hard to believe she was once that little.
Krista took this picture of my niece and nephew and this page has quickly become all my all time favorites!! The picture and the paper went together so well I was almost too intimidated to scrap it.
This picture of my niece is from the same shoot as above. The quote says, "Be not afraid of going slowly but of only standing still."
Sometimes we all gotta be a little sappy and I chose this page to show a friend how special she is to me.
Ok, so every time I go to this particular Crop, the group has a challenge page that we are to make. This month's challenge was to incorporate Christmas wrapping paper into a layout. I think it turned our really cute!
This is my youngest nephew Garrett. I find that I don't have many pages of him. This must be fixed PRONTO!

This is my beautiful, artistic niece, Janieka. She challenges me to look at things in a different light. Sometimes I get to caught up in my own world and how I have changed and grown and become so adult. Her wonder and excitement in the world keeps me young at heart and humble. I came across this little gem of a photo while editing pics to use this weekend at an all day crop and I just had to stop and share it and remember. <3

Well I have kinda gotten into doing more altered projects in the ...OMG 10 months?!?!?! that I've been away. Here are a few of the big projects I have done. Enjoy :)
This is another altered desk project for my Mother-In-Law. I went for a more patterned quilted look on this one. Its as beautiful and elegant as she is and fits her perfectly.
**** Edit - If you are looking at making one of these altered desk projects, you WILL need to cover it with a glass top. Just to help even out imperfections and make it a nice smooth writting surface. Also make sure to use very fine grit sandpapering in between each layer of Modge Podge. Good luck!
Painted Changing Table
Now I wish that I could take credit for these bunk beds, but sadly I did nothing but watch. My amazing artistic niece designed and painted this mural on a set of garage sale beds I purchased. I got these for $75 and when all was said and done, I was able to flip them for over $200.
My New Years Resolution...to get back to our blog and actually get it functioning again. Sorry we've been away so long. Lots of things have happened. I've moved houses and changed careers. Krista has moved as well and has set off on her own path as a full time photographer. But even though a lot has changed we are still as we ever were...crafters at heart. Thank you to our loyal friends and enjoy all the new and wonderful things to come!
