An altered organizer and some scrappin
Gosh I am so glad we got some rain this am!! Grow asparagus grow!! cant wait to pick some and grill it!!
I did work in my studio this am had a challenge lo to do and also wanted to TRY to help myself be more organized this year for markets. I am forever placing orders on pieces of paper and then well not sure where I put it!??? u know all bout it dont you?? LOL
So quite awhile ago I bought pkgs of these pretty pink and brown floral file folders hoping to do something with them!! well so here it is a order organizer for my desk. I added the days of the week to the tabs, a pocket is inside each one and then added a few pretty embellishments on the front. Hopefully this will help!! fingers crossed!! LOL
This is a layout I did for a challenge submission using a black and white photo. The pic is of my hubby's grandmother and her twin. CUTIES!! Added a bunch of new paper prima flowers layered and then cut out a vine and leaves from some textured green cardstock. Then used my wonderful TIM HOLTZ distressing inks to give just the right amount of aged beauty to this piece. There is lots of ribbon accents too, under the flowers, along the bottom I twisted some black old seam binding and also some brown on the tag.
Double Trouble and when these two get together watch out~~~LOL
love ya Granmda Jan!!
And this one i like alot, a lo to include butterflies~ some pretty butterflies sure pop off the page dont they? The bottom one is patterened paper ontop of a chipboard cut out and then put ontop of some old sheetmusic paper and oh love the vintage velvet light green rickrak ribbon!! love rick rak!!
Love is painted chipboard and then given a bit of bling with Martha Stewart's white glitter. I used a flourish stamp on the top corners.

*WELCOME to my blog world. My wonderful hubby and I live with our 3 "boys" Buster, Bubba and Billy our dogs on a small hobby farm in beautiful sw michigan. We grow fruits and veggies and of cource by our name raise chickens for eggs. Also we have goats, horses, ducks, geese, turkeys, peacocks and sevearl guinnea hens, and 4 cats. A few years ago I obtained my state food license and lease a fully bakery kitchen to sell my homemade from scratch baked goods, jams, jellies, and lots of sweet confections. NOW we are selling baked goods at Floral Touch Florist in Fennville MI and also sell to local stores.
I love primitive painting and do alot of wood crafts and also altered scrapbooking.
Here I will share our life and adventures on a farm with yall.
