Playing with brush-tip markers

Try something new this year!

I love a versatile product, don't you? These Aqua Pens from Marabu have two nibs - a contour point and a brush tip - so you can use them for lots of different drawing and doodling projects. Plus they're water-soluble, so you can blend with a damp brush to get pretty watercolor effects.

Paper Flowers in a Vintage Gramophone

Sing in the New Year with this fun display of paper flowers!

Something about paper flowers in a vintage gramophone just sings to me; so, I crafted up this pretty decorative piece using a die cutting machine and flexible wire. A little vintage music paper was also used to add interest to the piece.

Happy New Year Metallic Bokeh Card & Video Tutorial

Happy New Year.... almost!  It's time to start making your New Year cards! 

When it comes to colors for new years, I tend to always think of gold, silver, and black so I knew those were the colors I wanted to use for my Happy New Years Metallic Bokeh card.

Holiday Vase

Upcycle inexpensive glass pieces found in dollar stores and/or charity shops with etched designs!


My mother-in-law often received flower arrangements and would save the containers for me. I loved this square mirror vase and etched a snowflake design on each side. It was amazingly easy using either stencils or vinyl patterns cut on a shape cutting machine.
