What would you use this small fry box die for? Birthday treats in? To put candies in?Love to hear your ideas?

I’m here to share a brand new stamp set from InkyStamper. The set has 11 stamps in it.

I watercolored the dragonfly image with peerless watercolors and the grad cap with copics and white pen!

Closeup of the details. Paper shaped wings and glittered them. Such a fun image to work with.

Head over to InkyStamper and pick up this set! So much you can do with it!

This card was made for a very special graduate- Lexi! She is my bonus daughter! Calls me Mama 2.

Congratulations sweetie! I’m so proud of you. Can’t wait to see all the amazing things you do.

Regal secrets- BJP February

Hi! Here, I am with my February Bead Journal Project.

febbjp1 febbjp2 febbjp3

February is the month my youngest son was born. The birth stone for February is Amethyst. Which is the color purple. So that is why I used purple. The color purple has a variety of effects on the mind and body, including uplifting spirits, calming the mind and nerves, enhancing the sacred, creating feelings of spirituality, increasing nurturing tendencies and sensitivity, and encouraging imagination and creativity. The white beads represent  pure, clean, and innocent. Then the locket is to hold the deepest secrets of your heart. Most wears of lockets put a picture or a lock of hair in it. A locket is entirely personal and sentimental to the wearer.

I am almost back on track with my Bead Journal Project. I am currently about half done with March.

Thanks for stopping in to visit today.



Blooming Love- BJP

Good Saturday Morning everyone-

I know I have got away from blogging but I am back. I will be posting every Saturday morning. Today, I am here to show you my Bead Journal Project for this year. Of course, I am all ready behind. But, I am hoping to catch up with week.  Tracey and I spent a lot of time talking about going outside our comfort levels and trying something new. So, I decide I would do circles with needle felting and embellished with beads.



Here is the piece as I got started.


Putting all the elements together.


Close up of it all done.



The finished piece.

Now let me tell you a little about the piece.  The birthday stone for January is Garnet and is normal red. Red garnets have long been associated with blood purification.  To me meaning a clean fresh start.  Blue is the color of loyalty and faith so I out lined some of the felting in blue.  I used red seed beads too to show power that you need to have a clean start. Yellow suggest freshness. the color gold is associated with wealth and prosperity which I believe comes with a new beginning. The key is to help you unlock all the doors you thought were closed or to hard to open. The wooden bead that says LOVE is to remind you to keep love in our heart.  Then you truly can have a blooming love all year long.

Thanks so much for stopping in.  Hope you enjoyed seeing my Bead Journal Project.

The meaning of my Trust the Journey necklace:

Pendant-  The nest is a symbol of being strong and protected. (I created a collage on the back of a game piece)

The number 3 is a triangle- also meaning God, Jesus, and Holy Spirit.

The word trust means  belief that someone or something is reliable, good, honest, effective, etc.

The yellow’s meaning is the color of the mind and the intellect. It is optimistic and cheerful.

Dream catcher- Only good dreams would be allowed to filter through… Bad dreams would stay in the net, disappearing with the light of day.”

River Stone is known to hold powerful energy, providing the wearer with strength, energizing the entire aura, and speeding up internal and external processes.

(turquoise) color symbolizes richness, abundance and bounty

Copper has long been used as a healing metal.

paper beads mean a start and prayer. ( I made these paper beads out of some gelli art prints)

Cross- is the intersection of God’s love and His justice
