I have been working hard cutting and painting the various signs for my latest tiered tray kits and I am happy to say I am just about done! I've got a tag (for a bead garland) and one circle sign left to do and I think I can call it... Continue reading

Winter will soon be upon us and I've started work on a new tiered tray for the season! I think I'm going to keep the color palette simple...blue, white and maybe a hint of red or silver. I finished my first sign. There is a simplicity about it but I... Continue reading

I finally finished my latest tiered tray---The Wizard of Oz! I was inspired by my little collection of replicas of Madame Alexander dolls promoted by McDonalds several years back. I bought them mostly because I've always been a big fan of the movie (still am) and watch it every time... Continue reading

Staying busy with my Hocus Pocus diy mini kits which are doing well. My laser has been giving me issues lately so it's slowed me down somewhat. I know what the problem is but it requires ordering a new part, which I will do. In the meantime, I'm just trying... Continue reading

Took a quick break from laser cutting to sublimate these really cool 20 oz. skinny tumblers! They even come with a metal straw. The tall, sleek size of the tumbler makes it easy to hold too. I went with a subtle abstract floral pattern for the first tumbler and I... Continue reading

I've been busy creating mini wood sign kits for the Hocus Pocus Tiered Tray decor I created recently. Each sign is a kit in itself or the full bundle is also available. The kits are unfinished, 1/8" Baltic birch plywood, and have been prepped and sanded ready for painting! Instructions... Continue reading

I've been working on putting SVG files for laser cutting the Hocus Pocus Tiered Tray in my Etsy shop. One of the files I created was a silhouette of Binx that Cat along with a line he says in the movie. I fashioned it in the form of a shadow... Continue reading

I'm back! I've neglected my blog for so long and it's time to pick up where I left off. The year 2020 has not been a good year so far, sadly. We lost our nephew this year who fought the good fight against CHF. He went to be with the... Continue reading

Incorporating sewing and sublimation is something I enjoy. It keeps me from becoming bored easily. Those who know me sadly know that I am easily distracted and once I become bored (especially if there is repetition involved), that's it. I'm done...lol. The bucket projects have been both a challenge and... Continue reading

My sewing machine has been calling my name and I found the perfect project: an Easter basket! Every year I send my granddaughter a basket (usually purchased) and I fill it with treats for her. I use to place a few plastic easter eggs, fill them with candies but one... Continue reading

I've been busy creating but it's been a while since I last posted and wanted to share a little something I worked on today. Recently, I purchased a graphic set, Mermaid in Love, from The Hungry JPEG. It includes several mermaids, dolphins, a whale, fish, a turtle and several different... Continue reading

It's January, there is still snow on the ground from the last snowfall and more snow on the way. Just like the bears, I find myself hibernating until Spring arrives. Until then, I have stayed busy creating Valentine and Spring projects. My favorite, to date, are the poly-linen pillow shams... Continue reading

Today I tried sublimating my first oven mitt and pot holder. The pot holder was easy peasy but the oven mitt was a little challenging. The area between the thumb and index finger puckers due to the tight turn required during the sewing. I just made sure I pre-pressed with... Continue reading

Winter is here and just like the bears, I hibernate. I avoid going out at all costs. It gets too darn cold for my blood. Instead, you'll find me tinkering with Photoshop and creating with purchased graphics from The Hungry JPEG. Valentine's Day is almost here so today I thought... Continue reading

Valentine's Day is just around the corner! What better excuse to binge on chocolate but who needs an excuse? lol Today I'm sharing a camp cup that I sublimated with the purpose of having it hold chocolate treats to gift. I love the design, too. It was part of The... Continue reading

Seems like it was only a few days ago that we were celebrating Christmas and now I’m in Valentine’s Day mode. Found this adorable graphic of a bunny sitting on a crescent moon in the Vivacious Valentine’s Bundle from The Hungry JPEG. I knew I had to use it! After... Continue reading

It's always fun planning for new Christmas/Winter decorations. It's no secret that I love snowmen and this year decorations will include snowman snowballs! They are soft and plushy and have the cutest whimsical faces embroidered on them. As an option, you can add personalized hats, too. I went with the... Continue reading

I love sewing, especially at Halloween. When my kids were young, I'd make their costumes and my son, especially, always looked forward to it. He'd dress up and couldn't wait to get to school for the parade where he would proudly show off his costume. My kids are grown now... Continue reading

I was testing a swatch of poly fabric I recently purchased at Hobby Lobby and thought as long as I'm testing, might as well make something with the swatch, provided it sublimated well. I'd wanted to make a new pincushion for my sewing area; one that was heavy enough to... Continue reading

I looked out my window today and noticed the leaves on the trees in our backyard have begun to turn yellow. That means fall can’t be too far behind. It’s my favorite time of year. The air has a bit of a chill to it, you can hear the sound... Continue reading

I don't own pigs, I've never been around pigs (hmmm...let me think on that for a min), and I wasn't raised on a farm so I can't explain why I love pigs, but I do! I love their nose, the manner in which they run and their squeal....lol. I especially... Continue reading

The last two days I've been working on product for Christmas. It will be here soon and I need to start adding things to my Etsy shop. First, I found these cute little notebooks, 3.5x5 inches. You flip it up to reveal a little writing pad and on the other... Continue reading

Last Thursday I tried a new product from Conde, the 17 oz. pint tumbler. It's a stainless steel tumbler with a white, matte polymer coating on the outside perfect for sublimation. My biggest challenge was creating a template that wrapped around the entire tumbler without the edges overlapping in the... Continue reading

It's always fun to look at an item and figure out how to repurpose it for something other than it was intended for. I recently purchased a couple of 100% polyester, large placements from Conde Systems (sublimation supplier). The placemat itself is two layers of fabric that have been serged... Continue reading
