What’s new around here and a second Etsy shoppe

ShareTweet I have another 3 tier dish together and drying.  I found these two plates and two bowls *only need one bowl* at the Good Will this evening. They have this pretty painted flower and greenery look and I put small cabbage roses with green stitched to the top of each small glass used to tier the dishes.  These glasses are what I went there for. Sorta.. I went to two Dollar Tree’s and only found one crystal looking candle stick.  There must be a run on them. Maybe Halloween? I have no idea. I just know that there aren’t any and I need them for my tier dish displays. So off to the Good Will (1/2 mile from the house) we go.  If I didn’t find some type of clear candle stick, … Read entire article »

I guess they call them books or folios or something like that ::giggle::

ShareTweet I’m still addicted to YT and I’ve been trying to learn how to make these folio book things. I’ve gone over a tutorial about three times now. I’m trying to commit as much as I can to memory because of all the tut’s I’ve seen, this one is the most detailed, uses no glue in the binding and just is my favorite, so far. Three parts I’ll put below: Now, just for fun, I thought I’d include a peek at some of the finished foto folios that I wish I was talented enough to create or had a gold mine of money to buy kits. These are my favorite yummies so far, as well: Here is a convertible album in a box: I”M IN LOVE WITH THIS PAPER: Thanks for spending … Read entire article »

I’m a Crafting Youtube Stalker

ShareTweet If you want to know how to do it, go to YouTube and you’ll probably find it.  That’s my new motto as I jumped into the deep end of some new to me crafting ideas. It all started when I wondered what the heck was washi tape?  I know now and I’m only addicted to making mock versions with paper tape. I feel so bad.  The crafters know everyone’s name and their YouTube page and reference them for credit and I feel craptastic about it because I’ve watched so many of them that I don’t know anyone’s name or their YouTube channel.  I’m just to knew to the game. I quickly got addicted to making my own supplies to do some of the things I’m doing with journaling, faux washi tape (washi tape … Read entire article »

Online Love – Etsy – Charming Maggie

ShareTweet I just received an order from Deborabh,, or Charming Maggie.  I ordered a couple eternity charms, baseball related harms, cat charms, and Kokopeli, which are hard to find. I can’t tell you how over-pleased I am with the order and the service. There were special additional charms that I needed to know were there.  There were better charms than some I ordered, which only helps my business. I can’t tell you enough how pleased I am with Charming Maggie. Go visit and let them take care of you, too. Heidi SandDollarKisses **I put in a second order of charms for the store.  I purchased “believe” (which you know is my word,) sand dollars, and star fish.  I put in a word that I had my eye on the heart in heart charms, for my next order.  … Read entire article »
