Like everyone, I’m getting weary of COVID dos and don’ts, but feel strongly about their importance. During these nights in my craft room, I have gotten into watching Lucifer on Netflix! It has been a long time since a series entertained me so much, I am LOVING it! It is easy enough to follow while I play with my supplies, yet I have been pulled into the story! About a week or so ago, I made all kinds of tag bases with my Ranger paints, stencils, and gel plates. Didn’t overthink them, just played and watched TV. It felt good, it felt easy, it felt fun. Last night as I made my way to Season 2 of Lucifer,…

Can you smell it …. can you feel it ….. ? Fall is here and that means Christmas is right around the corner. Oh, for a card/tag maker this is the “funnest” time of the year. Break out ALL your Christmas stamps and your favorite mediums and create until the reindeer fly. This is what I have started my “Christmas card/tag journey” with, for 2019. I pulled out 3 of my favorite “Art Impressions”,  Christmas sets then pulled out some of my favorite mediums, some paint, fiber, and ribbon. First I stamped and colored my images.
