Midnight Masquerade Dance!

Now this is what I like to do, help out by doing something creative.  I like helping out but my full time job is  out of state so my commuting hours are crazy.  So anyhow, I made 18 masks in three evenings, (1) I first painted all the masks (2) I mod podge all the sequins to all masks (day 3) I added all the gems, and feathers  it was a combined total of 11 hours.   Each is unique, no two are exactly alike.  I hope the school gets to sell them all, and the kids enjoy wearing them at the dance.

Festive Friday Hop

Welcome to another Festive Friday blog hop.  You should have started back at Terry's blog, you didn't make sure to go back and start from the beginning.  You should have come here from if not please go back.

This is my card - simple and wanted to try out my new paints.  Now please go check out Diane Tuggle's blog to see what she made.  To the right side you can see all the links on this hop, in case you need to go back.  Thanks for stopping by, and make sure to come back for the next hop.

Creating on Wood!

I do love making jewelry, along with paper crafting, and sewing, and lots of other stuff, but I started by drawing - as  a kid and in HS, I loved to draw and paint. I love the fact that I can still do this but in different ways.  I don't do oil, water or chalk paintings any more - not because I don't like them but because I did these back when I was in HS a lot, and now I like to paint in different ways.  I love painting on everything I can paint on, including my sweat pants! LOL my daughter hates it when I wear these out on public.

Now lets go back a few years back and take a look at what I've done before. These photos are from some of the projects I have done - I have a lot more- but it would not be a good idea to put them all up (LOL).  I love painting on fabric, paper, wood, clay, metal, well guess anything that I can get my hands on.

I hope you like these projects, and feel free to leave any comments.

Crocheting around, my way!

I just wanted to go back a little and show some of the works I have done in the past and where I'm at today.  Now I love working with different mediums.  I've seen some amazing works on blogs, on-line and even on FB that inspire me to go in a totally new direction to what I'm used to making, this is going to take some time, because it is not easy for me step outside the line and say it's ok, there are no lines, no rules, just let it all be what it wants to be.

I do some crocheting, I have in the past made the scarfs, hats, even sweaters, but I'm not there anymore, don't get me wrong, I love these- I've seen some amazingly creative crocheting on-line, but I just want to make jewelry with it - so here are a few items I've done using a crochet hook and yarn.
