Hi. Welcome to my blog. What makes me happy? My husband Shane, quiet moments of content, hearing the pops of my jars sealing when canning, a to-do list with lots of things crossed off of it, time to create, and time to "stalk" creative blogs and how-to videos. I love creating with paper. I've been scrapbooking and creating mini-albums and cards for about 23 years. I have a passion for rubber stamping and I'm happiest when I have time to play with paper and ink. Time for creating is Bliss! Have fun exploring my blog.

I found several old apothecary bottles with their original stoppers at an auction down the street. My intention was to create a few potions/elixirs etc for Halloween and a Love Potion #9 bottle for Valentine's Day...so far I only created one Bat's Brew Bottle with a Poe raven on back for Halloween...I filled the bottle with strong tea for a nice effect...the bottle sets on our kitchen window sill. So many ideas for projects...wish I could just create 24/7! :-)
A little vignette of inspiration I created that sets on my work table. The assorted laces and bling are from various antique shop visits... the Parisian tags are from French General... and the rusty handled tray as well as the doorknobs are from Hobby Lobby. In the background you can see a little bit of my antique general store ribbon rack...a most "fabulicious" find from Adamstown, the antiques capital of the USA, which is only an hour away from us...how lucky are we?
No reason my desk at work can't be attractive...I altered these cans in a shabby chic style including beaded hatpins, tulle, paper flowers and organza flowers, vintage lace, jute, a resin cabochon cameo, and vintage buttons...now my pens and pencils live in style.
