My Pinterest Inspired Candles!

I have been collecting brass candlesticks at sales all summer, painted them
and shabby chic'd them! added some bling, very happy how they look!

Its beginning to look like Christmas!

Finally Been able to get up some Christmas Decor! Our tree is small and simple this year , afraid the dogs might attack a big shiny one!
I love my how my old window turned out so festive! All the garland and wreaths are from garage sales this summer! I made my noel banner... those paper yo yo's are so festive!

Altered Book

I was asked to my a little "tribute book" for a friend for someone

retiring that they could all put messages inside, and this is what I came up with!

I love the colors! the pages were blank so they could write in them.

My photo
I have a great passion for creating, and have been stamping and scrapbooking for over 15 years now! I absolutely love handmaking things and haven taken over an entire room in our basement as a"craft room".

I have been married to my wonderful husband Kurt for 23 years, and have three daughters ages 21, 19, and 15. We love animals and have two dogs and several horses.
I also enjoy hairstyling and run my own hair salon.
