Altered Wine Cork Christmas Tree Ornaments

Happy Happy Monday My Dear Sweet Friends

How was your weekend?  I haven't been feeling well and am still in bed resting.  Luckily I can work from bed from time to time and its a good thing because I have so much to share today.  Actually as you will soon discover I will be making some wonderful announcements as well as having numerous posts going live today.

Once again I am sharing an altered project I made as my first Design Team Project for the Altered Eclectic Challenge Blog.  Yep, twin challenges by Elaine and twice the fun.  For this project I wanted to make some Christmas ornaments.  So I gathered a handful of recycled corks and started adding some different types of lace, rhinestones, beads, charms and whatever else I could find.  And I think my favorite is the bling yarn I used so create the strings so I can hang them from the Christmas tree.  To me it was like the icing on the cake.  

The biggest challenge was in photographing them especially with the darker and colder weather. I really like them 



Looking forward to seeing you over at the Altered Eclectic Challenge Blog.  It's a month long challenge and there is plenty of time to get a little something something made.  I know, I know easy to say at this time of year.  There are a lot of new DT members (including yours truly) and lots of pretty stuff to see from the new DT as well as the seasoned DT members.

Thanks again for stopping by to say HELLO and I really appreciate it.  Have a fabulous Monday!!

With hugs and smiles

Hello my dear sweet friends -

I hope this finds you doing well.  It's been a while since I have been able to post and yet I have been able to get quite a few loose ends tied up.  I ended up making a quick trip to California to get the rest of personal stuff out of storage.  I am no longer scattered across three states and I can't even begin to express how wonderful that feels.  It will take me some time to get all my craft stuff set up and organized again but it looks like I will be able to really get on the ground running again.  It was a group effort and my sisters and brother in law were amazing and so incredibly helpful.  

A few days before the trip I received a phone call (out of the blue) from a dear friend I worked with at the Police Department in California 20 years ago.  It was great hearing from him and we have been having fun getting caught up on things. My my, so many new and exciting changes.  I am still working on getting my health back on track and doctors say I a…

You are Mer-Mazing!!!

Happy Tuesday Sweet Friends
I hope you are having a fabulous day!!  And I am really hopeful it's not overly hot where you are.  It's suppose to be 114 degrees here today and I am NOT looking forward to that.   What I am looking forward to is sharing my newest creation using this absolutely amazing image by Sherri Baldy.  She was so much fun to color and the background was really fun to create as well.  I just love her - she looks like she's just chillin' and enjoying her surroundings.  It's kind of magical and I would love to be there with her.  

I used Copics to color her and the colors I used are:
B00, 02, 04, 05, 12, 14 (Background and her Eyes) E000, 00 11, 31, 33, 35   (Skin and Sand). RV02, 04, 21, 23 (Water Background) V01, 05, 06, 09  (Mermaid tail, top, flowers, background and seaweed) YG21, 23, 25   (Water Background) YR21, 23, 25 (Hair)
I hope she brings you a smile.  Here's the link to her in Sherri's Etsy Shop: Sherri Baldy on Etsy - Image 661 Here's the lin…
