My little artist....

...in training. Little Becca Rose takes her coloring very seriously! Her Mommy and Daddy tell me she has expanded her talents to include the wall and doors at home. Funny how that sounds so cute when it is your grandchild (and not your walls!!!) She loves to color with her cousins when they are here too!

These are my creations for the monthly skinny page swap I am in. These are for Connie's "Vintage Children" book. I really enjoyed her theme. Got the sewing machine out and the drywall tape I picked up at Home Depot. I used some really cool vintage ledger paper and of course a few PaperWhimsy images.

Tomorrow I hope to finish some of the Christmas things I have in various stages of completion!

It's about time.....

.....I posted a few new things. I have a few more photos, but Blogger is giving me a hard time tonight! It's been a crazy month! We've been busy babysitting and shuffling grandkids here and there! My adorable little granddaughter shared her cold with me for my birthday. Had the family over for Thanksgiving dinner and now we are off and running to get ready for Christmas. I am hoping to get several things made for my daughter-in-laws. It really is true that time goes faster as you get older!!

These first two things are for a monthly swap on the ATT Yahoo group. I used several different blue inks for the background....smudged on a teflon sheet, spritzed with water, then smooshed onto a tag. Walnut stain ink is then applied over a stencil, Tim stamps and metal embellishments, and some tissue tape for good measure! I used Tim's "On the Edge" snowflake die for the card.

These are three pieces of jewelry from the Tim Holtz classes I took at Stampaway in August. I'm getting ready to make a few more of these for birthday swaps.
