Heart Vine Wreath

As far back as the ancient Greeks, the human heart has been associated with emotion; pleasure, love, hate, rage, etc. As far back as I can remember, I’ve had a love-relationship with vine wreaths. In fact, one year during the craft festival season (in the late 1980s), my girlfriend and I made dozens of wreaths from the Confederate Jasmine…

2 for the Price of 1 – Color Block and Faux Window Frame

In light of today’s both horrible and historic events, I have retreated to my “Studio Sydney,” which is always where I go to heal. I know that most of the world is sitting in front of their televisions tonight, but I just can’t see nor hear anymore. For me, it’s time to craft, write, and…

Buffalo Plaid Petal Wreath with Rose Center

I love this wreath! My girlfriend made this one for me. Isn’t it beautiful? She’s an incredible friend; one I know would drop everything and come to me in need, although she lives across the state from me. I’m so lucky to have a friend in her. A couple months after she sent the beautiful…

Decoupage Signs

I think I can say with 100-percent certainty that we are all waning from the affects of all that is now just simply known as The Infamous 2020 — a year that will most certainly go down in the history books as one of the most perplexing, confusing, intense, and downright disturbing years in the…

Wire Pumpkin Wreath

Anyone who’s known me for more than a day, knows I love Fall — the scents, the colors, the food, the air, the pumpkins — all of it. But I live in South Florida and it’s pretty difficult to distinguish the difference between Summer and Fall. So, I have to go with the flow and…

String Art Pumpkin

I use this space to tell you about my crafting adventures, but I use crafting as my form of  therapy. We all have “stuff” going on in our lives, right? For me, it all comes to a boil each August and September. My mother passed away on Sept. 26, and that loss changed my life…

Aluminum Flowers (Faux Metal)

My cousin was shopping the other day and came across something she’d never before seen, so posted a photo of it. Who new? I honestly had never heard that term and just laughed about it all morning. I mean, why not just call it what it is? Faux leather or fake leather, whatever! It just…

Heart Grapevine Wreath

My dad used to say, “She was the prettiest girl in town.” My mom used to say, “He swept me off my feet.” Through thick and thin, my parents stayed together, and when my father passed away in 2001, they had been married for nearly 64-years. This week — July 11 — they would have…

Yardstick Star Wreath

The whole purpose of this blog is to share the fun we have each month during our Crafting Sistas craft night.  The craft we made this month was beautiful and can be used most any time of the year. Our Crafting Sista Sandy hosted this one. We can always count on her and her daughter…

Quick and Easy Wreath

My husband is in the middle of relocating his business, so I’ve taken a bit of a break from crafting. He’s an Horologist; a clockmaker. And after 31-years in the same location, he has hundreds of thousands (okay, that might be just a bit of an exaggeration – but not by much) of clock movements…

Deco Mesh Wreath

The Deco Mesh Wreath seems to frighten many crafters, including me. Afraid of the possible mess from the fraying of the mesh, I had never made one — until this past August when my knee jerk reaction to losing my sister was to lock myself in my craft room and become one with my “stuff.”…

Valentine’s Day Wreaths

After all the Christmas ‘stuff’ is put away, I don’t want to go cold turkey without any holiday decorations. My house is usually covered head-to-toe in holiday décor, and it’s hard to let go of all that “festive-ness.”  So, I put a few Valentine’s Day things up — not many. It doesn’t take much to…
