This tutorial is something I've intended to share for several years now. I taught this class in 2009 (I believe) and have wanted to share it on the World Wide Web since that time. Not nearly as daunting to put... Continue reading

Dying/staining these silver tinsel pipe cleaners brings about a total transformation. They look amazingly Edwardian. You know those early 20th century postcards with the tarnished silver glass glitter?? That's what these pipe cleaners remind me of. Some years ago I... Continue reading

I have two Christmas classes scheduled at Paper Crown this year. First is the Bingo Card inspired Advent Calendar. It's about 9"x13"ish and made to look like a vintage bingo card. I wanted to come up with a way to... Continue reading

I got a hankering to make one of those SPOOKY signs I made a few years ago. It was fun to glitter the letters. I like it because it's easy and methodical. Kind of soothing. Anyway, it's available in my... Continue reading

I've been in the embroidery mood lately and I'm always trying to come up with new ways to use ribbon flowers. I thought button magnets might work nicely. I think I like them. I'm planning to offer a few antique... Continue reading

Needing a somewhat organized way to store my Copic markers and being unable to stomach the prices on what Copic offers for storage I was forced toward a little ingenuity. I started with my trusty ramen noodle box (Maruchan 12... Continue reading

Hi Barbara....these photos with the iphone app are really cool. I have a ferris wheel photo I want to paint but I want to paint it loose and kind of abstract so I wait til I feel capable. I wanted you to know that I have a few pics of Beula on my hard drive waiting for when I feel brave enough to try painting a dog. I'm finding that if you can paint one thing you can paint another so I might give it a whirl soon:)
