Some of my Fav’s…

March is already over! April is just around the corner, can you believe it!? This last month has been busy, but when do I not have a month that is NOT busy, right? I had the opportunity to get quite a bit of crafting, scrapbooking and some jewelry done too! Two of my favorite’s to work with right now…Canvas & vinyl and photo jewelry…There is so much you can do and create. I hope you enjoy these as much as I did creating them.

While at Scrapbook Expo in Pleasanton, CA I revisited one of my favorite booths – Craft Fantastic! I love how crisp and clear photos just pop out of these glass bubbles.  I picked up this little cascading flower necklace and added the charms of my beautiful daughters…the possibilities are endless on what you can create.  Honestly, this picture does not do this justice!



My sweet friend at work, Melissa is having her first baby boy in the next few weeks. I’ve seen so many great canvas pieces on Pinterest lately, I knew this would be a great gift! Not to mention having all girls, I couldn’t wait to create something for a little boy.  I grabbed some 12×12 canvas at Michales, added three coats of acrylic paint. Next I added on layer of modge podge (best product ever!), let it dry for a few hours – overnight is bettery…then using my Silhouette I cut out the baby subway art.  The best part! I was able to modify the image and add the baby’s name for a more personal touch.



Thanks for stopping by…until next time!

Isn’t that Pinteresting!!

In case you missed my “Pinterest” debut…here it is! I find so much inspiration from around the web, Pinterest keeps it simple and organized.  As crafty and scrappy as I am, Pinterest has also helped around the house!

I have to thank Julissa Ortiz with Good Day Sacramento for coming over and visiting. We both agree, Pinterest is very addicting, so if you are not on Pinterest, you need to be – but fair warning… you will be hooked!

Keep an eye out for the projects I started this morning. They will be on my blog later this weekend!

Super Bowl!!

I have been a die hard “9er” fan for as long as I can remember. My first football game was to a 49er game at Candlestick park,   I met Ronnie Lott when I was a kid and luckily for my husband I enjoy a great football game. The Super Bowl is a National Holiday in our home with friends, family and tons of food.

This year is a little different! My team, the SF 49ers made it to the Super Bowl. As the game approached last week my mind raced on how I can support my team in hopes they take down the ATL and make it to the big game – as they did. I’ve been dabbling in jewelry making, by no means am I an expert but it sure is fun. I wanted to use my Epiphany Crafts charms but they did not really match with the team colors being red and gold. Then I had an “epiphany” (LOL) I can still use my bubble caps without the charms. They worked perfect! I did not like the backs of the charms unfinished, luckily for me I found Glitter Tape from Bazzill. This stuff is awesome, it comes in all kinds of colors and was perfect for finishing the back of my charms.

I’ve completed two bracelets and one pair of earrings…I have to admit, I think I may be addicted….like I need another hobby! I am pretty darn proud of these babies!
