    February 13, 2017

    If you’re on Instagram or Pinterest and follow any hand lettering/calligraphy accounts, then you know that foiling is all the rage right now. It looks SO satisfying doesn’t it? I’m not much of a calligraphy buff, but once I saw this stuff I immediately wanted to use it in my art journaling pages.    Just after…

    June 10, 2016

    I love finding new ways to create interesting papers to include in my art journaling pages. It seems like I’m forever ripping, printing, cutting, painting on various papers to figure out something new. My collection of paper ephemera is large and out of control, yet I’m always adding to it.

    June 3, 2013

    February 7, 2013

    I’ll be the first to admit that I don’t make Valentine’s Day cards for the peeps in my life. I only give a card to Jason and he prefers a funny card from the store. Actually, I really like those silly cards too. We never get each other sentimental cards. It’s not really our style.…

  • DIY Gold Vase

    January 24, 2013

    I love a simple, quick DIY that comes together from things you already have. I keep a lot of air fresheners & oil infusers in my house to keep things smelling freshy fresh. I was using a small plain white vase that was leftover from my wedding in my en-suite bathroom. It was nice, but…
