Ceramic Heart Love

Heidi Borchers and I handmade these ceramic heart wall plaques / mobiles for the Creative Me Time Retreat and had some leftover kits so we thought we'd offer them to our blogger friends.  The kits include a 5" ceramic heart, a ceramic flower, 2 ceramic leaves, a couple of small accent tiles, wire to string on the beads, tons of colorful beads, instructions and a lot of love.  All of this for only $20 plus $5 shipping in the US.  Whip these up for awesome holiday gifts!  Message me at

Succulent Shoe Garden Special Commission

Starting a special commission Succulent Shoe Garden tonight for a very special person.  The client let me pick the theme and I have an idea that's perfect for her.  

Shoes are my 'thing' at the moment.  When I'm 'home' this weekend I'm picking up another special commission for wedding shoes but this time I scan in photos of the client's family, have them professionally printed on fabric and apply it to the shoes.  Shoes, shoes,, love, love...

Creative Me Time Women's Retreat

We had such a fabulous weekend at the Creative Me Time Retreat!  We created Vision Boards for 2015 - look out 2015 these are strong and beautiful women ready to take on the new year!  We expanded our creative horizons and mixed white bread and glue to make amazing bread dough roses that we added to a decoupaged frame.  Then it was on to making a heart plaque with ceramic pieces and beads.  In between all that there were several naps taken, much, much, much food, shopping, hikes, was a perfect getaway weekend!  Check out upcoming retreats and workshops at

Gifts from the Garden

Yup, I'm on the road this weekend to Lompoc, CA for one of my fav workshops - Gifts from the Garden.  We'll be decoupaging images on a shoe then we'll plant them with succulents and taaaadaaaa, we have a Succulent Shoe Garden!  While the glue dries, we'll make yummy Sugar Body Scrubs featuring local lemons and lavender.  Quilters Etc, the local guild I used to belong to is having a quilt show while zi'm there so I can't wait to see the beautiful quilts and see old friends.

Ceramic Roses and Mosaic Fun

I worked on my mosaic masterpiece today and I'm almost done!  Hopefully next week.  We only get together for two hours every week so it's slow and steady.  I made the roses using the Aleene's Bread Dough technique but I used clay.  They make me smile...
