Grow Your Blog 2015
I am excited to be a part of the Grow Your Blog blog hop hosted by Vicki once again this year. It is always inspiring to get to meet new creative people and see all of the things they have made. I am a paper crafter, and a jewelry maker and I dabble in needlework too. I love to create cards and I am on three design teams with card challenges. My niche is vintage style cards using lace (I put lace on almost everything I make), old papers and vintage embellishments. I love to use fancy metal filigrees and vintage keys on my cards as well as vintage seam binding ribbon. My favorite card making supply is Distress Ink by Tim Holtz.
Here is a collection of cards I created for a special order. They went to a beautiful store in Ft. Worth, TX called Daisy Rose.
My latest crafting tool is the Silhouette Cameo cutting machine. I am so excited to have received this machine for Christmas from my mom. It really is amazing and allows me to cut wonderful things from paper, fabric, vinyl and more. Look how intricate those snowflakes are!
My family and I have a bead and jewelry store in Joplin, Missouri and we also sell online. I enjoy creating jewelry almost every day. My favorite medium at the moment is using vintage components. Dry Gulch is also participating in this fabulous blog hop so stop by and see more of our unique jewelry.
I also make lampwork beads and headpins. Glass rods are melted with a torch and formed into one of a kind beads. This is the batch of Valentine's Day hearts that I made last weekend.
I hope you enjoyed learning a little bit about me and my crafts. Have fun hopping from blog to blog. I am looking forward to meeting mots of new people. I want to say thank you again to Vicki for hosting such a fun and informative blog hop.
