Steve is a member of the Midway Arts Alliance. They meet on Saturday mornings and do art. They usually have a model. A few weeks ago Chloe was paid to be the model.

Below is Steve's drawing. I'm impressed with how far these artists got with only three hours.

Below are pics of the progress of Suzette Gertsch's painting.when I saw it I just had to have Steve ask her if we could buy it. She is barely charging us enough to pay forger supplies. I can't wait to see the finished piece!

New Etsy Store...

No, I'm not 50 yet. This is just a sample cupcake pick that I made to list in my new Etsy shop. I will be selling personalized cupcake picks. There are a couple of other samples below. You can click here to see them all.

If you've never visited Etsy before, it's a wonderful place to go and get lost for awhile. It is a place for artists, artisans and just plain crafters to sell their handmade goods. You can find the most unique things! I can get lost for hours when I start looking at the items.

So since I am mostly homebound during the winters here I am trying to find things I can sell online to make a little extra money. This is a start. I haven't seen anything like it before, so that's always good (I hope!). Link me to your friends if you'd like to help me get the word out.

I will be adding more as the days go by.

My Mind's Eye - Beautiful new line of paper

I love this new line of paper from My Mind's Eye. The chipboard banner covers were also part of the line. I used them to create these two little books for a friend who is expecting twins.

Well, I made something....

Beck's class is so large it was hard to fit much on the page.

Beck and Chloe are in 6th and 5th grade at Timpanogos Intermediate School. Their yearbook is made up of pages created like scrapbooks. After letting the teachers know I was available for any crafty needs, I was lucky enough to get to make their class yearbook pages.

Chloe's class. You may notice that my children's pictures are missing from both pages. That's just because we moved here after school pictures were taken. Not to worry, their pics were added later.

Out of Touch!

So sorry I have been out of touch on my paper blog! Life sort of took over with us moving to Utah. My Cricut is still packed up, but everyday I get a little closer to taking it out and doing something creative. One thing I'm excited about that I got recently, is this book, "Card Making with Cricut" from Annie's Attic. I got it super cheap on It's full of really cute cards.

(Update: I just went back to and can't find the great deal I got. I think mine was under $1, plus shipping.)

Imagine my surprise (not!) that I have almost every cartridge used in the book and practically all of the paper. But it's so sad that my patterned paper is stowed away in the garage until we make our final move into a house in about 5 months. Don't count me out yet, though, I still plan on getting some of these cards made!

Hope to update soon! And thanks for standing by!
