Doing lots of projects

 November 2023

I find that I spend a lot of time on projects and not enough time on this blog!

If you are looking at my content and are interested in having a personalized or other gift, let me know. I have been concentrating on wooden and CD ornaments, knitting is on hold for a bit. I would be happy to make ornaments with your color choices, any lettering, small charms attached to hanging line.  

PRICES vary but range from $5 to $10; I can discount your purchase if you order 3 or more!

Thanks for looking!

Time to play catch-up with projects! Kind of better late than never!

I am welcoming myself back. It has been a long time since I even thought of posting on here.
 So there are quite a few projects to check out!
Here we go!

You will see as you scroll that I have been making a lot of recycled cds into Christmas ornaments! Most are dot painted and have 65 on them to commemorate friends' 65th birthdays. Lots of fun, acrylic paint, Cricut-cut numbers, some have bows or little silver initials attached also. Top coated to shine. For the most part the ornaments are hung with fishing line inserted into the hole I drilled out.

Canvas for a baby's room. Cut out the rabbit and decoupaged it on the canvas that I painted and lettered.
