~ Welcome to the first edition of Keeping Christmas – version 2019! ~ ~ This month I want to show you some ornaments I made for some of my special peeps, using pre-cut wood rounds from Hobby Lobby. ~ ~ I screwed 13/16” screw eye hooks into each round to start. Then I painted each front with white gesso. When that was dry, I stamped images and sentiments from several different stamp sets (listed in the supplies section below) using a black ink that was suitable for use with Copic markers. That’s what I used to color in each image.... Continue reading

~ Happy Wednesday, y’all! It’s time for a new Color Throwdown challenge and I really love the combo that Lori came up with for us to use: Navy, Gray, and Green. ~ ~ I had a super fun time creating my card for today.

The gray fish were adhered directly to the water colored... Continue reading

I’m here today to introduce you to a brand new beautiful digital image from Power Poppy, called My Favorite Pair. ~ ~ This is what the fabulous Ms. Marcy has to say about this image: An perfectly piled jumble of ripe pears, African violets, and meandering ribbon comprise the second in my series of vintage café au lait bowl bouquets. Think of the fun you can have with this one! As we burrow into our winter wonderlands, the freshness of houseplants in windowsills is sometimes the only green to be seen! Bursting forth with blossoms in purples... Continue reading

~ As much as I’ve been trying to fight it, it seems that Autumn is upon us. It’s October and although we have a couple of more days of 80+ degree weather coming up this week here on the lower East coast, after that the highs will be in the 70s for a while. I can live with that. At the Power Poppy shop and the Power Poppy blog Autumn is in full swing and you just won’t believe the awesomeness of the latest digital stamp set called Painting Pumpkins! ~ ~ There are 3 sets of pumpkins and 4...
