Gift from my friend Janet.

I'm loving this gorgeous dress form!!! This was a gift from my dear friend JANET, she's an amazing talented ladie, make sure to take a peek at her You Tube channel. I just can't stop looking at it. She made it out of a toilet paper roll and she also use molding paste.
I can't wait for her to get the ALL OK with her camera so that she can make tutorials videos, she has some great techniques.

My Valentine cards for this years.

I just love making cards. These are my valentine cards for 2012. I used bits and pieces of left over paper from my fav, October Afternoon.

I wanted some kind of a storage system for my cardstock and designer 12 x 12 paper stacks. I need it to be mobile and easy to get to. After looking around the office supply stores and on line, I decided I would try and do it my self.

I started by priming and spray painting these basket that I found at Target. I then measured the bottom of the baskets and cut a piece of MDF board to fit. I then added the wheels to the bottom of the MDF board. I used washers to secure the basket to the bottom of the board and then added the canvas basket liners. But, I still felt it needed a little something else. I remembered the vintage yard sticks that I've been collecting. I used them to create a little beveled edge all around the bottom of the basket. I think it gives it a little bit more of a finished look.
No project of mine would be completed with out a pretty charm. It's perfect because it rattles every time I move the baskets around. I'm so happy how it turned out because it works for me.

Loving my new bubblegum machine.

Look what I found while searching for vintage treasures in central Florida. This, so cute bubblegum machine was candy apple red, after lightly sanding her a bit. I painted her in this beautiful pink ballerina shade of pink and I just love how she turned out. The top is glass and it holds my favorite white and cream vintage button collection.

The little LOVE sign is new to my valentine projects for this year. Super simple, I just used the little frames from Michaels and the letters are from Tattered Angels embossed framed fonts, chipboard alphabet. The ink I used was the Tattered Rose distress ink by Tim Holtz.
