Trying my hand at vinyl

Trying something new again. I’ve never worked with vinyl before. Got a used Cricut and decided to play. The gray areas on the glass are etched from the back of the glass. The rest is vinyl.

Here are a few other first attempts with vinyl from this weekend.

Handmade Pendants

Made some new pendants tonight. They are still drying here. I can’t wait to see them tomorrow all dry and shiny. Great for necklaces or as keychains. They just sparkle.

Sugar Skull paper quilling complete!

I’m really  becoming addicted to this paper quilling. I had been wanting to work up to making a sugar skull. I have a curio cabinet full of sugar skull items and this will go perfect. Here are some photos from beginning to finally in its shadow box and all done. I’d love to get some feedback from you. What do you think?

Quilling Seahorse Project

I’m absolutely in LOVE with Opal, my quilling seahorse project. This is a project I designed and completed myself. Still in the process of self-teaching the art of paper quilling. This one took me about 8 hours from start to finish. It’s 5 x7 in size and now in a shadowbox hanging at my work.


Quilling Name Project

It’s been a while since I’ve made a post. My apologies. I’ve had a lot going on in life. I’ve decided to teach myself quilling. If you have never heard of it you should check it out. It’s all projects made of only paper. I’ve seen some that are absolutely breathtaking. While I still have a ways to go, I’m enjoying the journey so far. It’s a process, sometimes very tedious, but the end result has been worth it.


Hot Bowl Potholders

Fantastic gift ideas for those hard-to-buy for individuals. Great for teachers, bus drivers, co-workers, secret Santa gifts, etc. Add a bowl and a can of soup and voila….instant gift set. I can make these in any color combination or decor motif, as long as I can locate the fabric. Contact me today to place your order.

On August 21, 2017, the long awaited, total solar eclipse will be passing over our area. Many have wanted to know what times viewing will be best for their area so I’ve found and added a time schedule here. Find the city nearest you and enjoy. Please be sure to wear appropriate, certified safety glasses when viewing the eclipse or DO NOT look directly at it. Be safe and enjoy!
