A video to watch while I unpack!

Well I finally finished the wedding and have moved to beautiful Destin, Florida! I haven't had to time to create since but I will be back as soon as I unpack. In the mean time I will do some wedding video's for you. This is the first part and is all the creations and views with no one in them so you can just look at the beauty of the items we used. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did creating it!

Love ya,

It's Metal Month!

Miriam's crafting blog's theme this month is Metal. I'm so into steampunk I bet you think that's what I'm gonna show you but nope! My first project is Alice in Wonderland themed.

I had some 5x5" metal plates I had gotten from Pick Your Plum hanging on a peg just waiting to be used and here was the perfect chance. They came in yellow or gray so I went with the gray for the more metal look.

First let me say, I am 90% packed for my move to Florida and working with VERY limited items so creating is a challenge at best. I had some embellishments I had bought at Micheal's so with only those things, a printer and some cardboard I came up with this...

I took Miriam's corner embellishments and cut them apart to make the trim around the keyhole. The key hole was the hardest part of this project! I really struggled to make it look how I wanted it. I had to use a marker to distress the edges a bit because my ink pads were all packed. Were I to do this again I would definitely use an ink pad.

The products I used from Miriam's Crafting Supplies are:

Silver Tone Corner Embellishments
Winged Key
Lightbulb Charm

She also has the watches and gears but i had the ones I used on hand. You could almost one stop shop for this project!!!

Hope you like it. My tutorial for Miriam is scheduled for Friday but I'll be on the road so I won't be able to check for comments for a bout a week. Have to get my computer set up etc. once I get there :)

Next stop...Sunny Florida!

Love ya,


Once I get settled I'll tell you all about the wedding too!
