Stampotique ATC Swap using classic Colors

It's Almost December!

Here we have my 2 Artist Trading Cards that I made for the Stampotique December Christmas ATC Swap.  LOVED this one.  I am really enjoying the blending with pencils, without using Gamsol, just a variety of colors.

Happy Krafting,

Cute, Fun and Inexpensive Christmas Gift for kids

Good Morning,

I am currently trying to get all my Christmas Shopping done, and I wanted to share a GEM of a book with you.  It is so affordable, and it gets your children off the computer, away from the television, and into their creative minds.

Kawaii means "Cute" in Japanese, and this book is filled with Cute Fun!  From character descriptions, how to draw them, and various puzzles, riddles and jokes.  

It is portable, and will keep them entertained while visiting family over the holidays!

What more could we ask for?  Have I mentioned that it is affordable?

It is available on


Happy Shopping!

Sparkle-Page 1 of my Recycled Cardboard Book


I have decided to recycle the cardboard at work, and make a book of fond memories for my girls based on my past, and their childhood.  The above is the very first page.  It contains all the magical elements from my Oma (Grandmother) that I am now sharing with my children.  

When I was a child I would explore her sewing room, gathering buttons and fabrics, and simply sitting around all of them in awe. Organizing the buttons was one of my favorite things to do.

My Oma called me her Sunshine #1, as I was the 1st Grandchild, however I was but one of the many rays of sunshine in her life.  My Oma was a dreamer, and had so much talent. She had magical butterflies in her bedroom that moved during the night, and when I stayed with her each summer, I would awaken to find them in different places. I taught her how to say her first french word as well;  Papillon!

I hope I have inspired you to look into your memories and start creating.
Happy Krafting,
