Moxie Fab Thanks!

You have reached my stop on one of the most amaaaaazing blog hops ever – A blog hop to say Thank You to Cath Edvalson and her Moxie Fab self for 8 1/2 years of awesomeness. You should have come to my blog from Laura O”Donnell’s blog HERE.

Moxie Fab Banner 4 (1)

What can I say that hasn’t already been said about one of the most influential, fun, awesome, amazing, talented, fun (did I say that already? lol!!), and absolutely one of the sweetest women in all of craftendom (yes, I just made up a word).

Now, I’m going to say that I’m one of THOSE people who has never been published. I’m not famous. No one has ever heard of me, well except for a small few of you…but I’m okay with that. (Or at least my therapist says to keep telling myself that.)  But, that being said Cath has always made it a point to give me words of encouragement. She’s said “hi” and chatted at events that I’ve been fortunate enough to attend.  And even when I tried my hand at her beloved Moxie Fab challenges her comments always made me smile – even though I didn’t win.  She’s just THAT sweet! You all know what I mean. ♥ The woman  oozes awesomeness!

When she announced in her column Moxie Fab World that she’d be stepping away from PaperCrafts mag and her role on the editorial team, my heart dropped. But, moving on means change and change can be exciting and wonderful. And I sure do wish Cath all things wonderful, exciting, happy, and full of all the love that she’s shared with the papercrafting community for the past 8 1/2 years. Dearest Cath, we will ALL miss you in this papercrafting community, but we wish you love in wherever life takes you.


Now that you’ve seen (and read) my personal tribute to the amazing Cath, you’ll want to make sure to  go to the next stop on this FABULOUS hop to my sweet, wonderful, and insanely talented friend, LAURA BASSEN .  (◄–click)

Here is the MASSIVE link love of all those hopping today and sharing our tributes to Cath. I’m stop #56, so feel free to start back at the top if you get lost or move on from here to Laura’s as linked above. (she’s awesome).  :)

PS – In an effort to keep my post relatively short(ish) I’ll post all of my card supplies tomorrow. xoxo

Butterfly Canvas Collage

Hi, sweet friends! I’m up over on the Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft blog today with something that I’ve NEVER EVERRRRR done before. A collage on canvas. Yep! This is my very 1st one. Eeep!

I really had no idea where to start. I’m being super honest here. All I knew was that I had certain colors in mind, so I grabbed papers, Gelatos®, PITT Artist Big Brush Pens, textural items, stamps, and embellishments. And then I got started! I have the step-by-step tutorial on the Design Memory Craft Blog, if you’re interested in how I created this. But, for now, here is my finished piece.:



I’m REALLY happy with how it turned out and can’t wait to hang it up in my craft room. It matches perfectly! I am NO expert on this kind of thing, but if you have any questions on what I did, please ask me. I’m more than happy to answer. But, check out the post on Design Memory Craft 1st as the answer may be there. :)

Just a side note: Now that Google Reader has closed it’s doors forever if you’re still following me? THANK YOU!! I do have a few options to keep up with my posts. You can follow via Bloglovin’, Feedly, you can subscribe via e-mail, or via any other RSS Reader. (**AND…if you are already a follower? Keep track of this post. The title and the date. It will gain you extra entries into a future giveaway!!**)

Have a blessed Sunday!
