Halloween Mixed Media Art Piece

Today I decided to try and duplicate the look of these pumpkins on my dining room table.

I love their imperfect bumpy texture.

Once done, I will add some mixed media Halloween items.
So far, it looks like this:

I am very happy with it so far. The next step will be to add the gold highlights and then the mixed media items. Will post more pictures once it is done. Have to stop for the day and head to work.

It's always in the last place you look .......

Ugh!!!! I wish I could just remember the last place. I have been searching for two things in my house for three hours. I cannot find either one of them. So frustrating!!

My Mind's Eye - Lost & Found 2 - Rosy

I was asked to make a sample for The Scrapbooking Studio in Bloomington using the My Mind's Eye - Lost & Found - Rosy collection. After looking at the colors I knew I wanted sepia pictures. Decided on an acrylic 6x12 album using thumbnail and wallet size sepia pictures. I really liked how it turned out. (Even if my adorable husband did not like being the subject of an entire project.)

Teresa Collins Haunted Hallows Bottle

Love this little bottle I designed using a Starbucks Frap bottle. Absolutely love the Teresa Collins Haunted Hallows Line.

Changes in life happen

Well, after officially retiring from working a year and a half ago, I thought I was done. My family needed me more, and I wanted to be there more for them. Well, I should have known that life has a way of changing when you least expect it. Last month I found out a new scrapbook store called The Scrapbooking Studio was going to be opening a second store. A new store was coming to my area. Woohoo!!
It turns out, I knew some of the ladies who were going to be working there. It also turns out, that the owner was looking for one more person to work a few evenings a week. This is where my retirement ended. My kids seemed to be doing well, and life seems a little more organized. I could do this!!
Working again!! Woohoo!! I have missed being creative, so it fit in perfect. We opened the doors for The Scrapbooking Studio here in Bloomington, IL on September 17th. People really seem to enjoy the store and we are having a blast.
Thank you Amy for coming to Bloomington!!
