Pot of Gold

Today over on TAC Savvy they are challenging people to play along in the Pot of Gold Challenge.

The Rules:

For the Pot of Cold Challenge I needed to use the following elements:

1. Stitching – green stitching on bottom – I used my new Sew-Easy made by We R Memory Keepers

2. A punched item – I punched a circle

3. Ribbon! – I used green polka-a-dot

4. A button AND/OR a bow AND/OR a brad! -I used a buttons and a bow

5. The color GREEN! (a little or a lot) -I used lots of shades of green- green paint, green buttons

6. LAYERS! – I used 5 layers

I also used the Melody Ross chip art tools on my chip board tab (the flower with leaf) I used three TAC sets as well.

I had a little help:

Ok, I better run and pick up my art supplies since this is my dinning room table! LOL!

Thanks for stopping in! Enjoy your day!

Right now, I am feeling a little lost a little off. Something are starting to pile up on me and I am doing the best,  I can to let them go. I can’t change them. Which is so hard for me.  I’m looking for that ZEN!

I did make a Valentine card

Started a big painting

Did an art lesson with the ink spot. Working with mixing colors, textures and shapes

Hoping to finish off this big painting this week! What plans does everyone have for this week?

TAC Halloween Blog Hop

Everyone knows how much I love Halloween! So, when my TAC Demo- Chelsea told me about the Halloween blog hop that The Angel Company was doing I jumped on board!

Here is the card I made:

Then I thought well I need a little necklace to go with this card. I sued a big scrabble title for my base.

Well….then you have to package it all up nice too, right????

For all my project I used the set Batty Good!

This is what it looked the morning one of CHA. Chelsea and I took a walk along the edge of Lake Michigan. It was a gorgeous morning!

The first thing that caught my eye at CHA was these jewelry pieces and other goodies  from Little Windows. It is a resin system…I did buy this kit…and will be giving it a try today. So, I will let you know how easy it was! Fran from Little Windows was so sweet and her mom too! Chelsea and I had a great time chatting with them.

I am going to say there were a ton of FREE make and takes. One was this polymer clay pendant from Micheal’s

Glass ornament with painting on it from Folk Art Enamel paints.

Card from Papertrey Ink- this was the set you got if you spent a $100 at PTI- only available at the show

This was the PTI display board! The stuff at their booth was displayed gorgeous.

Me in this really pretty sweater! I was so disappoint it was not for sale! LOL

Friday night we took a Fiskar Class. Here… Chelsea and I are with Lead Fiskateer Tami Bayer.

Since this is a lot of photos and I did not size them down to load fast! I will end here for today! Lots more to show you!

Thanks for stopping in!

Getting by…

I know it is has been awhile since I have updated my blog! Bad bad blogger…

Ben had his surgery on Friday! It went well!  He is being a stinker and not taking his pain meds and then is a crab apple!

We got our community garden lot planted this weekend…well I should say Joe and Sam did! Ben and I went out for about 20 minutes and then came home.

While we were out at our garden. Ben was the official photography (SMILE). Here are a few of my favorites he took!

I did get to spend a little time in my studio. I made this little Birthday set!

Happy Monday Everyone! Thanks for stopping in!
