Grow your blog


Sorry for the delayed post!
Tehnical difficulties with Google and Microsoft not wishing to play together!

I am a crafter.  I love to play with paper, fabric, paint, fibres and sometimes all of the above!
I started Scrapbooking for my mental health about 16 years ago.  Then stamping and card making was added 14 years ago.

 I used to do a lot of cross stitch but had to give it up when I developed carpal tunnel syndrome.  (I have since re-aquired a few booklets and some threads to do smaller projects)  This past year saw me learning to crochet.  The catalyst for this is an upcoming trip and I wished to make little gifts for an exchange.  Check out my crocheted Mickey ears!

I have also started on an Altered Art Journal journey.  I love to learn how to use my tools in a variety of ways, since I have collected WAY too many tools and supplies of the years!  (Haven't we all?) 
So please feel free to browse through past posts and hopefully follow me as I discover (new to me) techniques and share them!

Hugs to you all!

Cindy :)

  13. Hello Cindy.
    I started an art journal in October but I don't have lots of tools and toys to go with it. In an RV, I can only have so many "tools and toys" and that means my quilting and painting take precedence. I enjoy the journaling though mine is perhaps not as varied as yours would be. Happy GYB!

  14. I'm following your blog now. Marsha

  15. Your cards are very pretty. Thanks for the tip on using the Gelatos. I have them, but I haven't used them yet. Nice to meet you!
