I like the color scheme of this pillowcase set! I start with a dark blue pillowcase and drew on my pattern with a white chalk pencil. Then I embroidered with various colors! Turned out cute I think!

I bought this set of nested wooden trays from Hobby Lobby and a pack of pretty napkins and some modge podge! I separated the 2 layers of the napkin and used the printed piece for my project. I started with my sponge brush and placed the napkin in the center and started apply glue all over yet delicately due to the thinness of the napkin. I covered each tray and let dry!! Easy and fun!

I started this one with a dark blue background on 5x7 canvas. As I painted I was very happy with it and it sat on my desk for a while. I made myself finish it before I started another project and now I really love it! The colors turned out better than I expected! I also added some glossy accents for dew drops!

This was one of David's most recent projects, he made this knife from an old horse femur bone. I decided to paint it for him on 8x10 canvas using acrylics!

This was a gift I made for Mom, she is a pen lover just like me! I bought her this set of Slicci metallic pens and made this little cup to put them in! Nice!
