Mr. Smarty No-Pants.

Hiya, Guys and Gals!!

I'm super stoked today, because TODAY, my first post for the Lindy's Stamp Gang blog went live!!  Yeah.  Totally, over-the-moon.
Here's what I created...
This guy is a little canvas and a whole lotta Lindy's!!  Here's a list of all the product I've used...

I really love him!!  He's such a quirky, feathery fellow---of the canvas variety, of course.  My baby girl has dubbed him, 'Mr. Smarty No-Pants'.  I bet you can guess why :-)

And finally, here's a little close-up.  If you wanna see how he came together, hop on over and check out my process video HERE.
Thanks so much for stoppin' by!!

Mad Hatter Hop And A *Super* Mini Album.

Hello, Everyone!!
If this is your first time visiting me, welcome to my little corner of the world :-) 
If you're a regular reader, have I got some goodness for you!!
Today is the day.
The day the Lindy's Stamp Gang designers HOP.
Yep!  Today, we hop to showcase the amazingly lovely new Lindy's collection---
This collection features sprays, glitters, embossing powders, micas---YOU NAME IT!!
And I love it.
So, today WE HOP!!
YOU SHOULD HAVE COME TO MY BLOG VIA LYNNE'S BLOG.  If not, you should hop back to Helen's blog at the beginning, so you don't miss a thing!!
Here's a little project I've whipped up with this fun collection of color-y goodness...
This mini album is a project that's been brewing in my noggin' for a bit now.

My Joshua has always had a love of capes.
It's one of my favorite stories to tell!  I could never keep a pillow case on his pillow because he just had to pull it off and wear it---in full-on, cape-tastic style.
It frustrated me to no end, but how do you get mad at a kid for being *Super*??

As I was perusing old my stash for photos of Josh in all his 'caped glory', I noticed a trend...
He's a fan of a disguise!!
I guess that's par for the course...
If you're a Super Hero in training.

This page is my fave :-)
I'm not sure if that's because it's a current photo, or if it's the fact that my teenage son still loves the idea of flying...

 Someday, I know he'll figure it out!!

Or maybe it's all that Lindy's shine!!

And that's the whole shebang!  I'm so glad it's finally out of my head and onto paper. 
And Josh LOVED IT :-)
Here's a list of all the Mad Hatter products I've used:
Silver Moon Mistletoe Embossing Powder (So SPARKLY!  So SHIMMERY!)
Curiouser Chartreuse Glitter (Magically DELICIOUS!!)
 Ok, guys!!  That's it for my project!
Thanks for stopping by today!
Now, off you go to Cindy's blog :-)

Too Cool For School Caddy. For Tools.

Hiya, Peeps!!

Today, I have an up-cycled bit 'o fun to share with you :-)

My baby girl, Paige, is the 'Queen of Caftin'!  She has crayons, markers, scissors and glue for each and every room of the house.  Sooooooo, I needed to find a solution to help keep her organized, while tickling her need to keep it crafty.

Enter, the tool caddy...

This caddy spent the first half of it's life as a drink caddy a la Sonic!

A bit of chalkboard paint...

...and one cute Saturated Canary image later, and Miss Paige was well on her way to organized!!

This little cutie is called 'Roger That', and you can find her in the Saturated Canary digital store HERE.  And if you wanna see how it all came to together, you can check out the video tutorial below.

Thanks for stopping by today :-)

Keep it crafty!!

My Heart.

Hiya, Folks!! 
I'm pleased as punch to be sharing with you my very first official Lindy's Stamp Gang DT project!!  I gotta say I just LOVE color, and nobody does color better than Lindy's :-)
Today, is the very first day of the September Color Challenge
This challenge will run the entire month of September.  And as a bonus, those that play along and share their creations with Lindy's via Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or linking up with the Color Challenge, may find themselves featured on the Lindy's blog in one of the 'Feature Friday's'.  Those who are featured on the blog will receive an email with a 20% off coupon to use at a time of their choosing.
Here's this month's color palette...
Lovely, right??!?
When I saw this color scheme, I totally did a little happy dance!!  Pink and green just happens to be my favorite color combo EVAH!!
Ready to get your color on?
The Rules:
  1. Help us spread the word! Share our color challenge graphic in your blog post and link to the Lindy’s Stamp Gang blog , where the challenge can be found. For every 50 people that enter, we’ll have one giveaway! So 100 entries=2 giveaways.
  2. Use Lindy’s Stamp Gang products! You can use, StarburstsFlat FabiosMoon ShadowsGlitz SpritzMagicalsEmbossing PowdersMica Powders… any of our stampslaser cut-outs, or brass charms.

  4. Link the Lindy products you used to the Lindy’s Stamp Gang store, like this: Hibiscus Rose.
 Easy Peasy, right??
Here's what I came up with...
This pretty little spool charm is more than it seems...

...when you untie the jute, it unrolls into a fun, teeny tiny scroll!!  And since September is my anniversary month, I thought I would make myself a little something pretty to wear that reminds me of my Sweetie :-) To see how I transferred our photo onto the collage, check out my Acrylic Skin Tut.

And finally, here's a close-up of the clay heart embellie I've added to the front of my spool.  It's rustic and has beautiful pops of pink shimmer and totally makes me smile. 
Here's a list of all the Lindy's goodness I've used:
I'm Late, I'm Late Slate Glitter (Glitter? YES, PLEASE!)
Razzleberry Plum Embossing Powder (So, Pretty. So PINK!)
