I currently carry "Walking in The Forest" which are, I just can't describe the beauty of these papers. I also have other collections....just featuring this line today

Trying to keep up!!!

Hello all......Just checking in...Seems to be a monthly thing for me. I've been working a lot and were going through a remodel on our house, which is going to be awesome, WHEN IT'S DONE!!! ...lol.... I still get to craft here and there but mostly I have been working on my ETSY store. I can't believe I have logged more than 300 items. Here are a few pictures on what I've been working on.
These are some dangle charms. So easy to add to a project!! I just use a flower with a stem, thread it through and there you go...ready to adhere to a project.
A complete scrapbook page ensemble dyed in the beautiful Tim Holtz ink Victorain Velvet.
Along with some gorgeous gift tags I have created. Hopefully I get a card in or maybe even a scrap page...One can dream!
Hope all of you are doing well and having crafty days!!

Some Butterflies I have been making!!!

Hello! It has been awhile again but thats ok. Between some surgery I had to have and a full remodel of our house life has been very interesting......just for example we have no hot water in the house so I have to take a shower out behind the barn in the horses wash rack!!! Scot rigged up a solar shower and actually it is very refreshing!!!!
Well enough of that...........here are my butterflies!! If you are interested they are in my ETSY shop.
That's a few of them. So hope you enjoy your day and happy crafting!!!

Just having fun!!!

Hello!! Don't even know if anyone will read....since I started working I haven't had anytime to scrap or be on design teams...do I miss it?? Yes I do. But we have been dealt a hand that required me to go back to work. At first I was embarrassed, I took a job as a hotel maid. It pays ok and they hired me full time with benefits, and I have never worked so hard....really. Couldn't pass that up. So I did that for 10 months WITHOUT missing a day or being late. Then a room inspector job came up and I jumped on it. So now when you enter a hotel room and you find something wrong it's my butt!!!! I will never leave a hotel room again without leaving a tip. Those girls work hard and you wouldn't believe what we have to clean..........so now I just get to pittle with crafting but I still keep my sanity!!!
So I thought I would use my blog (since I finally know how to use it now) and showcase what I do do.
I feel guilty posting on other sites because I just don't have the time to thank or return the comment.
I have been making embellishments for my ETSY store and keeping The Shabby Horse Cafe online scrapping supplies.
So now that I have blabbed.....here are some items I have made:
So not to much to show.....guess I'm just trying to hang in there....If you are here thank you!

WOW!! Hello!!!!!!!!!!! It has been forever since I have been here....I have been working a lot and I do miss the time I use to have to scrap. I diddled here and there and have done a few cards so I thought I would post them even if it is only me reading this. I miss blogging!
The first card was made for a friend to give to her friend. It felt good to create again.
Here is a little close up of the flower area.
Anyway that is all I have!! Hehehehehe......I barely have time for the few "likes" on facebook I do. Well if anyone reads this I hope all is well with you and yours! I miss scrapping with all of you.

I am Semi back!!!

Hello and it seems like forever since I have posted anything on here. I think I have finally gotten in the groove of working (no overtime) 40 hours a week!! I haven't had time for much scrapping and I miss it terribly. I made a blank layout with the line Little Miss from Bobunny. I do have this in my ETSY store for sale.
Here some close ups:
And yet another one!
I painted a Dusty Attic chipboard and added some liquid pearls to it. Well that is about it. Now with the Rim Fire at 85% contained life is returning to normal again. Still some smoke in the area but nothing like that first week. I take the time to thank all the fire related people who kept the fire at bay. Thank you....
Take care and hope to see ya all soon....Lisa

Wow it has been awhile since I posted. I have been MIA because I took a full time job on and have been getting lots of overtime. It's been rough adjusting to it but I am really liking being back in the work force BUT I miss scrapping. I have only been doing a little here and there....anyway here is a project I made for PaperHaus magazine
  I used Websters Pages and some Fab Scraps paper.
I made the big flower using the Tim Holtz Tattered Floral die.I used some masks and gesso. Added lace and pearls.There is even some burlap!!! I hope you enjoyed this project.
This was my trip to Aussie last year to meet a wonderful friend.
 Hope you enjoy the weekend!!!
