Published in 'Stamping All Year Long'

I was stunned to see my Easter Card on the cover!  I am so happy that two of my submissions were accepted for this new publication from RubberStampMadness.  There is a lot of beautiful artwork in this book - you can purchase it here.

Sewing Projects

This year, I have been catching up on forgotten projects and I finally finished these burlap sack pillows.  They are for my step-daughter's new home and I was amazed at how quickly I can finish an envelope style pillow cover.  They were a big hit and had the desired shabby chic vibe.  Now I will be envelope covering everything in sight!

Also, made another Mr. Ted.  This one for my granddaughter.  I got a report that the beta version of this bear lost his button eyes quickly.  I immediately purchased safety eyes (visions of choking children keeping me up at night).  These safety eyes are going nowhere my friend!  Last I saw this guy, he was wearing a tiara at Mary-Grace's 2nd birthday party.

And here is a picture of dear Mr. Ted with my husband's first teddy bear.  I plan on restoring this little guy.

Back to some stamping fun!

Published! Stampers Sampler

Nothing is more exciting than opening the mailbox and discovering that you have been published!  I am so honored that this piece was chosen for Stampers' Sampler.  'Circus Dream' is one of those projects that turned out completely different from what I first envisioned.  The idea came from those odd dreams that I have when I sleep late.  Those dreams are so unusual that I tried to capture one.
