Hi There: As you know every month I join the 12 tags if 2015 challenge from Tim Holtz. I love these challenges because I get to work on new techniques!! This month again there was sewing involved. A couple of months ago for my birthday my hubby bought me a Singer start sewing machine. I read the instructions, followed them step by step, and just started playing. I'm not proficient by any means; but I have managed a few straight lines. I decided back in April that I wasn't going to let the sewing win. So here are my tags (I made 3). I loved the Distress Glaze and the effect you get when you use it. I also have 3 of the small Stampers Anonymous sets, so I decided to try them all.Hope you like them.

Happy Sunday All: Ever since I was about 12 years old I've collected tea cups and saucers. My paternal Grandmother Julia had a mismatched collection that my father gave me. I think they are beautiful little works of art. Over the years of course I've added to the collection via presents, antiquing, ebay. This weeks theme for Simon Says Stamps blogs monday challenge (simonsaysstampblog.com/mondaychallenge/) is Coffee or Tea. My youngest daughter knowing my love for tea cups gifted me with the Brenda Walton Tea cup die a couple of years ago. I am embarrassed to say this is the first time I've used the die. Silly me, because these cups are so cute. I will be making more. Hope you like it.

Afternoon all: This is one of those work on instead of work in the craft room days. Today I'm a little excited though. This is my current die cutting station. My Vagabond actually straddles the top of this bookcase. The bookcase has actually been a great way to store my ever growing steel rule die collection. The lovely boxes well thats where I keep my embossing folders The magnetic board on the floor houses my movers and shakers. Today or tomorrow this is going away and I'll have a beautiful steampunkish workstation made by my husband. First though I must vacuum, unload the shelves, and move my garage sale bookcase out of the way. The project I'm working on . Hope it turns out.

Hi There- When you look at an object what do you notice first? Pattern? Color? Size? Shape? For me it's the color. I also associate those colors no matter what their on to something. For instance orange and navy- Those would be bronco colors. So when I think of summer I think hot colors like hot pink, oranges yellow. So for this Simon Says stamp.com/monday challenge (simonsaysstampblog.com/mondaychallenge)I was inspired by colors.
