A brand old cabinet for crafty stuff!

Another piece to paint! I spotted this cabinet in some of David's old stuff. It will be perfect for some craft supplies I thought! So I picked out some pretty paper and paint to match and painted away! For the handles, I used wire and beads. I looped the wire out so your finger could fit to grab hold. I also used some hot glue to secure the end beads on top of the screws. This doesn't hold everything but it's a great help and pretty too!!

Hummingbird Rescue!

I was upstairs in my studio working when a tiny hummingbird hit the window. I saw him take a nose dive into the grass several feet away, so I grabbed my camera and ran outside. Of course, I'd like to think I rescued him but I just held him while he gathered his senses. Then he took off up into the trees nearby. I think he'll be alright!

Flourishes - Strawberry card

This is the first card challenge I have ever participated in!! **grin** It was for Flourishes Tuesday Challenge FTTC29 - The theme was Red, Olive, & Black! I decided to use Flourishes own Strawberry Stamp and sentiment on A2 card size.

1. I stamped the pretty strawberry's onto GinaK 120# Pure Luxury Cardstock
2. On the strawberry's I used Copic colors RV21, RV23, RV25, R24, and a touch of YR07
3. On the leaves I used G21, YG63, YG67
4. On the flower center I used Y17 and yellow Stickles
5. I then outlined the stamp image in E41 (not sure if I like that now or not).
6. On the Flourishes sentiment I cut the tag with my slice and added silver Stickles around the edges.
7. I used my Paper Piercer and punched 2 holes for the brads.
8. I colored the already light green petals with YG63 and YG67 to make them a little more olive colored and stuck the tag on.
8. I cut the black cardstock with some wavy scissors.
9. Stuck everything on with my K&Co tape runner.

Copic Marker Storage

I really needed some way to organize my Copic markers in my work space so that I could have easy access to them. So I ordered this Magpie cubbyhole container. It comes with 9 cubbyholes and a drawer in the bottom space, but I needed 12 cubby holes for my color groups. So I bought a piece of craftwood from Hobby Lobby and David cut it for me and made it fit perfectly inside the space where the drawer was! I painted it white to match and just set the drawer on the top for extra storage space. I have my handy Copic hand color chart for quick reference right on top! I just wanted a plain chart without any extra info on it so I made my color chart myself in Excel. If you'd like a copy just email me! I now have 238 markers!! Groovy!!

Owen's Painted Chair

We have a new family member! His name is Owen! He is such a chunk, just look at those cheeks!! As a gift I painted him this little rocking chair! I tried to pick out some nice boy colors and tried a little decopodge. I used acrylic paints and the letters were cut using my cricut. He'll grow into it nicely!

Birthday Card

I had a good reason to make a pretty card last week! It was my Mom's birthday! I took her to eat at Carey Hilliards, bought her some movies tickets and made her this pretty card! I'm just learning my copic markers and wanted to show all the colors I used to color the birthday cake girl. As I get better at this I'll start doing some tutorials!
I hope Mom had a good birthday!! Love you!!
