I Just Can't Keep the Pen Out of My Hand

This weekend I have been really busy but in between the goings-on, I relaxed by making some new designs. Boy have I used lots of ink!  Here are my two new designs, I will probably make these in to note cards. Some folks have suggested I sell some of my work....that idea is quite appealing!  

I will call this the Starfish design.

The house with no windows but there is a door if you look close enough!

Follow me on Pinterest - I find so many neat things from talented folks out there!

Thanks for looking!  I'll be back with another project or two soon!

Autumn is in the air

The leaves are changing and it is getting dark earlier, it's the perfect time to get crafting and make some Christmas presents!

I wish I could sit and write more, I find that I always have a project or two on the go and combining that with volunteering and daily life, I don't have as much time to write as I had hoped.

So I will be posting more photos than words...

Here are some of my newest creations:

Baby rattle -- black ink....Baby written in handle

Close up of a super soft baby blanket I made for a special little girl

Reclaimed pallet wood, randomly cut, lettered in black paint

 Electric ink. I may make some note cards with this design.

Acoustic guitar design with black ink

Canvas with calligraphy overlay - birth information. Washed with purple acrylic paint and floated darker around edges.  Cricut lettering with heavy cardstock

Thrift find - part of a three-piece set. I made chalk paint using plaster of Paris and light colonial blue interior latex paint. I distressed some of the edges and legs. Coated with three coats of Minwax clear finishing wax.

More doodling and time wasting!

I am the first to admit that I do craft projects before some other pleasant activities such as doing the laundry or cleaning!  :-)

Here's what I have been doing lately!

Flower Power

80th Birthday card. The inside of the card is done with the coppery ink, too.

White on Red - white gel pen, shaded with white pastel pencil

That's it for now. I can be reached at  or find me on Pinterest or Sulia.

Thanks for looking!
