Extra Styles


My crafting resolutions:
1. To create more than 50% of my projects with either recycled materials or scrap left over materials to cut waste and excessive earth fillers.
2. Teach paper crafting classes and share the Joy.
3.Custom Design Products I love to use and share.
4. Learn everyday what it takes to be patient, understanding, tolerant and giving.

Howdie friendly crafting peeps! 

A few things to share with you today INCLUDING the winner of my candy down below so bare with me!  At the end of March, the fabulous Fabi and Angie Hunt and I got together and created a wonderful little Multi media book project together!  They have both shared their projects earlier and I want to include mine in today's post!  It was a great day with terrific crafty friends and I appreciate the Gesso lesson Angie, thanks!

Here are the ladies!  Such dolls!

Some before and after's of their projects with black Gesso!  Just gorgeous choices and great work!

I didn't work with the black Gesso that day but I enjoyed the entire project with white!  Enjoy!

I'm sure you've all been wondering where and what I've been up to?  I havn't posted quite as often as usual this last few months but I have been very busy in the background.  My beautiful daughter Sammantha is getting married to a terrific man in just five short months!  Where is the time going??

The flowing bohemian style wedding dress has arrived from the Miss Dress Etsy store, and other than a few alterations like length and changing out the buttons for those from my wedding dress and some small lace from my moms wedding dress too, it fits perfectly!
