My Final Post for eclectic Paperie!

Good morning one and all!  Today is a little bittersweet for me.  I’m sure most of you are already aware, eclectic Paperie is closing.  That also means the end of the blog and the design team.

We have had a fabulous run as members of the eclectic Paperie Design Team and wish to thank you all for your interest and support over the years. With the eP blog coming to a close at the end of the month, we all wanted to do something special to celebrate the fabulous friendships, tons of inspiration from other team members, from Kim, and from all those who participated in our challenges. Each of the current DT members is taking a day to post some of her favorite makes from her time on the eclectic Paperie team. We hope you enjoy the look back.

Today is my last post over on the eclectic Paperie Blog and I’m sharing some of my favorite projects from the last four years.  Join me and take a walk down memory lane!


Friends Are Those Rare People!

Good morning all!  Hope everyone is doing well and staying out of trouble.  I’m wrapping down what’s been a pretty busy month so far (birthday celebrations, family reunion, fall festivals, Broadway shows).  It’s finally the weekend for Ken Oliver’s Art at the Edge!  Can’t wait to see everyone and meet up with some friends I haven’t seen for some time.  I’ll be hitting the social media over the weekend, so make sure to catch me on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter . . .  from what I’ve seen so far, Ken has some fabulous swag that he’ll be sharing with us, and of course, I’m going to have to share with you!

Now for today!  I’ve got a card posted over on the Quietfire Creations Blog, using one of the newly redesigned and cling mounted stamps.



Thanks for stopping by here and I hope you have a fabulous day!!

Fall Decorations!

Good morning!  I can hardly believe that I posted one day and then turned around and the month is just about over.  When I posted my last project for the Quietfire/Walnut Hollow Blog Hop, I truly had all intentions of posting again within the next day or two.  In my mind,  I was going to create another project similar to the one for the hop  . . .  

I turned around and here it is a few weeks later, the middle of October and everything I had planned just didn’t come together!

I have a family reunion this weekend and one of the highlights is an auction to raise funds for cemetery maintenance/upkeep.  Last year was the first time I attended and didn’t know what to expect, so I didn’t take anything handmade.  This year  . . .  well it’s a little different!


Instead of recreating the wheel this early in the morning (another of those best laid plans), I’m going to point you to the Quietfire Creations Blog to see the step-outs I did for the Walnut Hollow Blog Hop.  


As with the other project, the wood sign is from Walnut Hollow.  It was painted, antiqued and then sanded with my palm sander.  Okay I’ll admit it . .  . I’m hooked on the palm sander to distress!  I’ve even gone around the house and sanded some shelves that I had previously painted that I felt needed more of a “worn” look.  We can thank Joanna Gaines of HGTV’s Fixer Upper for that tip!  


I hope y’all have a fabulous day!

Quietfire Design and Walnut Hollow Blog Hop!

Good morning all!  Quietfire Design and Walnut Hollow have teamed together for an inspirational blog hop using the Quietfire stamps and/or digital cutting files and Walnut Hollow wood products.  Two designers from the Quietfire team are posting over on the Quietfire Creations Blog each day this week.  

I’ve been wanting to work with Walnut Hollow products forever and a day and was so excited when we were told about this hop.    I’m really excited with the way my project turned out  . . .


Please join me and Kathy Jo over on the Quietfire Creations Blog to see more of our projects!


Give Thanks!

Good morning!  Today is my day to post over on the Quietfire Creations Blog.  I’ve worked up an altered frame using the new Quietfire Design set, Give Thanks!


I hope you’ll join me over there and have a look at more photos and get the details!
