A little mojo...

It's been a while since I've made cards all on my own. I sat down on Friday and made these all in a couple of hours. I took Lacey's idea and made two of each. I was suprised that it didn't take much longer to make the "copy" than it does to make just one.

A new obsession...

I have recently discovered a new hobby, digital scrapbooking. I have done paper scrabbooking for years now. A couple of years ago my grandmother gave me several old pictures of me growning up. I've wanted to make a scrapbook using those photos, but I haven't wanted to cut up those pictures. Digital scrapbooking provides the perfect alternative. I am completely new to all of this, so the first layout I created used the template tutorial from
The second layout I created used a template from Pooker's Creations, Terres kenyanes kit from Timounette, and brushes from Obsidian Dawn.

My Etsy Shop

So, I decided to jump in and join the Etsy world. I've been making and designing jewelry for years for friends and family. I'm branching out and designing pendants also. All of the jewelry in my shop is western themed. Items feature vintage pin-up cowgirls with cheeky sayings. Stop in and check it out.
