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.

Several months ago, my husband and I went to visit his friend, Tom, who often goes junkin'. Together the three of us explored out in his barn where he keeps his "finds". Tom says if we see anything we want we can have it. I found this old blue rusty hardware organizer and immediately I think a shabby chic "button organizer"! So I take it home and wash it, sand it, wash each individual drawer several times in order to get the labels off (quite the feat), and paint it white. Finally today was the day I finished the project. After I was done, I asked my husband if I should have put all the embellishments on the top of it. He said,"Of course, they're just going to end up there anyway because when you craft there isn't an empty flat surface to be found; this way they're glued down so you won't lose them." Always the wise guy...even if he was speaking the truth. ;-)
