A Smile Lasts Forever

A simple mug decorated with rub-ons and bling. A nice cup to drink tea from, poured from yesterday’s pot!

A Pot of Tea

I used some rub-ons and some Dollar Store bling to make this pretty little tea pot. I love the way it turned out and now I am just patiently waiting for someone to come over for tea, so I can use it!

The Magic of Christmas

For this very simple candle, all I did was se a Daisy D’s rub-on and colored the star in with yellow Stickles. Very simple, but oh-so-cute.

Finding Yourself

Altered Candle:
I used a Daisy D’s rub-on, some green fabric flowers, pink bitty brads and dragonfly brads to make a cute little candle.

Snow Fun!

And by that, I mean it’s no fun! I was hoping it would come a bit later this year, but it has arrived. The kids are happy, but they are not the ones who have to drive through it at 2:30 in the morning. I guess I may as well get used to it…spring is a long way off.

Snow Friends Plate


For this plate, I stamped the image and sentiment with Staz-On ink. I used liquid applique for the snow and colored the little guy from the Snow Friends stamp set with Sharpies. I used paper flowers from the local LSS and used Opaques Pearls to finish them off.

Live Inspired Frame

I love the way this frame turned out. It was fairly quick and simple to make and yet, I think it looks really elegant. It was my first attempt at Staz-On and it may be one of my new favorite things to use. It is inked on the outside of the glass, and while the picture does not do it justice, it gives it some dimension.
