Covered Box

I pulled this Victoria Secret box out of the trash to cover it with a wallpaper sample that was also in the trash at work. What a way to recycle! I'm on a hunt for more boxes.
The paper is hard to appreciate in my picture but its really soft and pretty. This little dog is part of my iron dog collection.

Mammoth Iceplant

A sprinkler had run all night at the Mammoth Golf Course creating a spectacular display the next morning. After returning from a walk with the dog, I thought "Hey this is a special one of a kind, never again, type of thing here"... so I grabbed my camera and went back to take many pictures that day. Here are a couple I tweaked with photoshop.

The Stockings Were Hung by the Chimney with Care

I made these for my girls. Both stockings were made with a sock or jester pattern. I never got around to make one for my husband and me.

Here's a christmas card I made a couple of years ago. I still like it but the family likes photo cards the best.

Mia's Dog Portrait

I painted my friend' s dog Mia for a present for her brother. She was so fun to paint because she is so many shades of colors.

Welcome to my first blog! I enjoy looking at other blogs so I decided to create my own.

Here is a Christmas ornament I created from leftover cabinet metal hardware that had been sitting in our storage cabinet for years! The tassels at the bottom were leftover from a pillow I made years ago, too. So, a whole recycled or green ornament!

My intention was to sell them or give them as gifts but I don't know anymore. I have 57 metal plates and only enough trim for 9 ornaments. What to do... what to do...

I made 3 kinds ... white, gold & silver glitter.
