Doesn’t Alicia look pretty holding up the adorable banner

she made for the summer!



Alicia also made this charming wooden tag from kit items. 













Anne is having fun art journaling with Dylusions sprays and stencils, and lots of doodling.  Beautiful colors.



Anne is also learning how to make Shrinky Dink art.  Check out these fun cards she made in a class at Gee Gee’s.  Cute little turtles!



Tricia made a fabulous banner for her family’s get together. 

Here are a couple of the letters.



Kathren went to the event, CREATE in Orange County and learned how to carve her own stamps. 

The left side is an imprint on fabric.  Awesome!



Kathren made this adorable sunbathing lady from clay.IMG_0863Do you just love her!



Kathren made this sweet banner from a recent kit.




Kathren took a Jane LaFazio class at CREATE and look what she made with free motion quilting.  Wow!


Here’s another example of Kathren’s fabulous free motion quilting.



Kat made her very own aquarium with acrylics, sprays and Golden’s bead gel on canvas.



IMG_0868Denise also attended CREATE and took a class from Alisa Burke.  Check out the amazing new skills she came home with. IMG_0871IMG_0869IMG_0870

IMG_0872Denise actually learned how to make this stamp and used it on fabric.  Gorgeous!






Emmeline and Channel recently became family.  They had fun blending their unique talents to create a fabulous wedding for their parents. 




  What a wonderful way to get to know each other…

by collaborating on such an awesome, important event in your family’s life.






Emmeline turned ordinary water bottles and candle holders into something special for a fun event.











Who wouldn’t want to write their thoughts in a pretty journal like this!  Monica enjoyed a fun class at Paper Source and learned how to make this very professional looking journal.
