A Yard of Burlap Goes Far!

I still have a half a yard for a tote.

"Re-Dressing" the Ordinary

I've been practicing using my Brother Sewing Machine's quilting foot to do some free motion stitching. I couldn't wait to recover a plain spiral notebook for the new school year. It's perfect for lesson plans. I think I'll enjoy seeing this on my desk each day!

I did a photo "transfer" (of me as a little girl) on to muslin the easy way. I lightly glued thin muslin on to heavy cardstock with a glue stick. I then fed it directly into the printer. Afterwards, I gently took the muslin off of the cardstock. It works every time!

Here are some dressed up versions of food cans! I'll use them for pens, pencils, etc. on my desk

Last Art Get-Away of the Summer!

I had a lovely day at the Aledo Bake Shoppe in Aledo, TX! Thanks to Jennifer Babcock and family for a wonderful day of crafts and fun. I saw some familiar faces from Paper Cowgirl and met some newbies too!

The gift bags were amazing, the lunch was incredible, and the art was amazing! Jen, thanks so much for letting me teach at this fun event!
