Future haul pics? Maybe so.

OMG! I don't usually rant about this sort of thing here BUT I am soooo geeked right now!!
The hubby acts un-interested when I was rambling about this awesomeness... and the angel-like 9 year old could not care less!!!! LOL 
SOOO here we are! And here I ... GO!!!
I am in-love with Webster's Pages, specially these lil' stick pins with cameos on top... I had thought about buying these them from an on-line scrapbook store days ago... 1 package of these lil' darlings $5.00 and I thought I'd be happy... then there was the shipping! 
The shipping was about as much as these lovely lil' stick pins I wanted! 
So I put the pins on my wish list and told myself to just wait. 
Then tonight I was online gazing at these beauties and was kinda bummed coz I WANTED THESE SOOOOOOO BAD [I HATE inflated shipping prices tho]! Right?! Then I had a thought.... Ebay!
Why not give it a browse? Well I did!!!! 
I got those suckers for $3.00 and some change!! Bought 3 packages of 'em even! 
Then I browsed further in this store... SO many things I love... and FREE shipping if I spent $50.00! 
Well, when I saw that there was 6 fall colored glimmer mists for $23.00 and some change it was on!!!! 
My hubby was cool with it!!! OMG! I am way too happy atm... =] don't judge me! LOL <3

can be such an asset! Tags and pockets and a few other embellies were created using my electronic cutter and Make the Cut software!!

First Blog Hop!

I have been curious about being part of a blog hop for a while now... due to me being shy, and at times socially awkward, I feel I am kind of failing on the blog front! =] I love visiting 'em, tho I often forget to leave comments! And  my blog... well I love it but, often am at a loss! SO in-spite of  my shyness or any other thing that might hinder me... I expressed interest in being included in a blog hop! It didn't take long before the sweet Yolanda invited me to be part of one in September! <3 I'm SOOO excited! Thank you Yolanda! As details emerge I will be ranting about it... I CAN'T WAIT! God bless and Happy 4th of July! <3

Scrapbooking OFF of the page.

Well this blog entry is about altered canvas number 4, titled : *Thank Heaven for Little Girls*...
I cannot really put into words just how MUCH I love altering a canvas! It is by far my fave
altered type of project. I think the thing I most enjoy about the over-all project is I don't
have to worry IF it's going to be too bulky! I actually preferr them to be very dimensional!
The more dimension the better! I don't have to worry about flowers being crush or how to
store them coz, I know they will be hanging on a wall! And added bonus? They will be 
 looked at everyday! =] Altering a canvas makes me feel all artsy too, and I enjoy the
painting that I do too! I've actually gotten WAY better at blending colors... I just LOVE
doing this type of project! End of story! <3 So, with that said here are the pics!





Flowers that were used in this project were all by recollections, love pennant and tiny glass vial [message in a bottle] are by Making Memories, random ribbons, string of beads, vellum and pink cardstock were just in my stash! The patterned paper used here is by DCWV and it is from their *Vintage Collage* stack [love these papers]!! I used Make the Cut and my electronic cutting machine to make the title label, pocket where the photo will be inserted, and bracket for behind the picture! IT IS AN AMAZING program!
Anyways I appreciate you coming by and hope you enjoy!
God's blessings!                        <3 ... Desiree'

Craft fair...

SO yesterday was the very first time I have ever gotten myself involved in a craft fair...
I sold next to NOTHING! We were in an odd spot and didn't get nearly the traffic that ALOT of others did.
Oh well, coz what traffic I did get, I was shown lots of love. Even if they didn't buy anything.
To me that's a blessing all on it's own! =] There was one sweet woman who owns and runs a local christian
business, a gift shop, and she went out of her way to extend and offer to me... to sell my stuff through her store on consignment! That got me pretty geeked. =] SO even though ALL my stuff didn't sell, I still think it was a positive experience! I thank God for blessing me the experience and all the other gifts He's given me. <3 
God bless you all!                     <3... Desiree'

Have you ever...

I was wondering have any of you ever made something, and crushed on it? =]
Ya know? Like you make something and LOVE it?
Coz I kind of have a crush on my latest altered canvas! When I bought this DCWV
*Vintage* paper pack last year on clearance it was love 1st first sight! Seriously.
The paper I used in my latest altered canvas was one of my faves from that stack!
I also used some papers from K and Company's *Life's Journey* stack and some vellum
and other random cardstocks... Anyways here are a few pics!





I embelished with some cuts from my cricut... a couple of ribbon roses I made, and
some recollection's blingage from Michaels. The featured pic is one of the hubby and I a few
years ago, and is being displayed just for show here. I hope this finds a happy home this
weekend at the craft fair thingy! Though... part of me will be sad to see it go! <3
God's blessings!                                <3 - Desiree'

My altered box.

Well, it has been INSANE in my lil' world lately! There is a local festival going on and I'm going to try and sell some of my things there. Being a bit socially challenged this is a big thing for me!
I'm really quite geeked about it though!
One of the things I am planning on selling is my altered box...
After I was done with this it dawned on me that I REALLY need to start taking before-during-and-after pics when I do a project like this! I posted this to facebook and got some positive comments! Loved them all.
I'm pleased with how it turned out! My youngest... everytime he looks at it always says it looks old, =] in kind of a shocked voice. Which pleases me more coz I was going for a *vintage* or *antique* look.
I have so much more I want to do this week, anyone reading this send up prayer for me please! That I will get everything beautifully done and that it will be a success! God bless!         <3 - Desiree'

I used a sketch!

I joined scrapbook.com over a year or so ago and LOVE seeing all the wonderful layouts and things other members make! It's a wonderful site to go to be inspired by or just browse when I'm bored, and there are so many amazing people over there!
I was browsing the other day and cam across some wonderful sketches... sketches so beautiful I HAD to use 'em! They were created by a user named Beggahuna, and she is awesome! Anyways...
This post is to share the layout that her sketch inspired! I made quite a few of the embellies myself [the more I learn to make the more I love it!] I'm pleased with how it came out. This is for Jessica's memorial scrapbook that  I am creating for her momma. Only 5 more pages to go!! =] YAY! Many blessings and much scrappy-love to all my followers! <3 Thanx for looking and following!

Altered picture frame.

I had gotten a picture frame a while back, and had not a clue what I would do with it.
Until a couple of days ago! =] I decided to alter it and give it to one of my dear aunts.
Nearly two years ago she lost her husband and I lost a special uncle.
She had told me at the funeral how he was the love of her life...
It was a very easy project to do, the paper did most of the work! I used some paper from
DCWV's Ciao Bella stack. I LOVE that stack! <3 I Mod Podged over and under the paper.
Added some embellies and TA-DA! =] I really think it turned out great!
When I gave it to her she cried. Awwwwe. It makes my heart smile SO big when someone
LOVES something I have made! It makes me feel humble and blest!
I want to thank ALL of my awesome followers! I know not much goes on here, and it means
alot that you all have cared enough not only to read my rantings and look at my pix, but that you
cared enough to follow! <3 Much love and many blessings to you all!
Now for a couple of pix! <3
