Silver Cross Bracelets

 Make your unique mark this year and create something truly special for family and friends.  I found these wonderful crosses on Etsy.  Then I went into my stash of darker beads, and combined them with these pewter hammered beauties.  I love the festive season, and what a different gift this will make for my heavenly friends.

Day of the Dead Canine Shrine


Do you know what Dia de Los Muertos celebrates?  On November 1, the focus is on gatherings of friends and family to pray for and remember family and friends who have passed away.

Even though our miniature schnauzer, Bruno, was just a sweet little dog, he was very much our family.  I created this tiny shrine to remember him and to honor his short life.  He passed away this past May.

Here's to sugar skulls and dog bones!

Moonlight Fairy

 Dear Friends,

For the past several months, it seems like all I want to do is work on my knitting.  This Saturday, I broke the habit and attended a wonderful class at our local scrapbook store.  We made these adorable fairies.  Of course, I couldn't resist using my images from Moonlight Journey.  I love the way she came to life.

Hope you all are enjoying the change of weather and living life in peace.

Red Velvet Cupcakes

Another month is here, and that includes my recipe for August. 
 It is yummy, as well as very pretty to eat!  Enjoy.

Midnight Reverie

Magical ideas spring to life when you find inspiration from Deviant Designers.  While reading the latest issue of Somerset's Digital Studio, Spring 2013, I found enchanting images by Hollie Haradon's Deviant Scraps.  Their team became swirling with ideas while reading "The Night Circus" by Erin Morgenstern.  As soon as I went to their web-site, it was impossible to pick just one package to begin having fun.

Here is my first interpretation of their insanely creative ideas as an "invitation" to  their magical circus.  What I love best is how each designer's contribution worked perfectly with the next.  I just can't get enough of each digital animal, character, and paper pack.  What an amazing accomplishment to share with us all!

July Recipe Card

Banana Coconut Muffins with a Lime Glaze

Young coconuts are all the rage now -- their water is very hydrating, meat is rich in lauric acid, which is known for it's beneficial antiviral, antibacterial, and antifungal properties.  It even has been shown to improve the immune system and reduce inflammation.

Who doesn't need a little dose of all these benefits?

My sister, Peg, gave me this great recipe that I used to create my latest recipe card.  She says these muffins are absolutely awesome.

Enchanted Postcards

When I first saw these images from Moonlight Journey, I thought they would make amazing cards for my monthly postcard swap.  I used heavy card stock in between the front and reverse sides.


Lately, I have been keeping myself so busy making these postcards, continuing my recipe card swap, and my latest obsession of making chunky bracelets.  I need to take some photos of my latest creations to show you all.  

Take care, Nancy
