Received a fabric wallet to match my wristlet from SaraLynn. She's got a couple styles of wallets to choose from. Wonderful person doing business with.

Custom ordered a regular seat belt cover for me from Jalsiku on Etsy. This cover is so amazing! I had a problem with the seat belt coming in contact with my skin and it was so uncomfortable....not any more. It's also reversible.
Originally made for kids' car seat restraints which looks like it comes in a different size. Many other baby products are also on sale in her shop.

Highly recommended!

gift card holder

Box Pouch

I found a tutorial for this box pouch here. The directions are pretty simple & basic. The difference with mine is that I used fusible interfacing & serged ALL edges. It's bigger than I thought it would be. I can find many uses for this...

My High School Kids

Andrew made the H.S. Football team (long snapper) and Danielle is in the Athletic Trainer class.

Airbrushed by Robert

Andrew came up with a design using his initials, AMD.
I gave this design to my brother Robert and this is his take on it.
Pretty neat, huh?

MIL Frame

This is a frame with pictures of my MIL taken throughout her life.
This is a poster frame with the acrylic front instead of glass. The acrylic keeps it more lightweight and allows it to stay dimensional where the glass makes it so heavy and crushes all the pics & makes it less dimensional.
Flowers were stuck on the outside of the acrylic with glue dots.

hot wheels inspired

This card was made for Gavin, a little boy who's about to turn 2!
It was a custom made card made for Ashley at BlueNostalgia. I literally drool over her jewelry.

Colors & flame inspired by the Hot Wheels pkg. I even drew out the flame myself. Don't know if that's good or bad cause my drawing skills are 0%! The car had a design on it that I was trying to cover up, which determined the size of the flame.

List of Elements:
paper punches
heat embossing
cut outs
paper piecing
dimensional tape on front panel, car, & windows
customized with name on tab punch
die cut
