ATC Corsages


Oh dear me!  I just found some photos on my computer that the virus had hidden and I see clearly now that I missed many of Eunice Creswell’s bead-iful creations from May!  Yikes!  Not to be overwhelmed into inertia, I will plow onward!

These three fun ATC corsages come complete with their own specialty pins with seed bead embellishments and micro beaded heads on them.  Such a fun little accent that really adds a lot to these tradable cards!  Eunice, you are so clever!

Floral Lattice

Lattice by Marianne Colschen

I’m still in process with my craft room.  Cleaning, sorting, clearing, organizing and discovering.  The latter is the best part of all, finding treasures!!

I can’t remember if this beauty by Marianne Colschen has been on the blog before or not, but it turned up and I wanted to err on the side of you definitely getting to see it!

O’so faintly you can see the embossed diagonals on the white cardstock.  Marianne used them as a guide to lay down Sure Tac glue to create the micro beaded lattice upon which her pretty flowers bloom.

I definitely need more space just to display all of the goodies I’ve collected over the years!

FUNky Flower Tin


Getting sick is never fun, and when it’s an illness that lasts longer than just a few days then all fun goes right out the window.  That’s kind of what happened when I got that virus in June.  Don’t worry, I’m not sick but my computer sure has been.  We thought it was going to be terminal, thankfully it wasn’t.  

Unfortunately though, it left a nasty trail of chaos behind.  Would you believe that the virus actually took and HID almost everything on my computer!?!!  Programs, pictures, documents,…. EVERYTHING!  So piece by piece I’m putting my computer life back together and trying to get my mojo back.  It’s taking longer than I would like it to.

I’ll be squeezing in blog posts as often as I can and mixing it up a bit so that all three of our summer artists will get fair screen time.  Thanks so much Jennifer, Yvonne and Marianne for your understanding!!

This fun”ky” tin was created by Jennifer Toussaint.  The bright colors always sell me and this cute little tin is so whimsical.  The clear micro beads always make photography a challenge so in case you can’t read the stamped image on the top it says, “He was away often.  I like that in a man.”  Kind of reminds me of those sassy 50’s women you see on calendars and napkins now.  Ü

Jennifer took her tin the extra mile and spruced up the inside as well:


Just darling!!
