Our fragile earth

January 29, 2009

I will introduce you to my other pasttime, related to papercrafting.   Artist Trading Cards (ATC’s).  They are so much fun to make, and MY form of therapy.  🙂   lol.   I can hardly say it is cheaper than therapy because I am not sure it is.  (yikes)   I belong to various groups in trading these little beauties, and most recently I established a local group….which include so many of my friends and very talented people.  We trade once a month, with all sorts of different themes.   The one shown here is one I made for my own collection and is among my favorites.

and the little tag stating how “fragile” our earth has really become.  
Enjoy, and thanks for taking a look.  


One of my favorite boxes

January 28, 2009

this is one of my favorite topics to work with, atleast.  Historic Oskaloosa boxes sell  out nearly as fast as I can make them.  I can personalize them, or you can find my general inventory (exclusively) at The Book Vault in Oskaloosa.  So many people are interested in the history of their hometown, and I love to create (and research) hometowns all across America, for creating a WONDERFUL box to commemorate it.  Of course the inside is equally as wonderful, and makes the box useful as well.  Use it to hold momentos, or SIMPLY have another look to display with it open.
