To Be RESCHEDULED! I realized that I was over zealous in having a blog-wide event. I didn’t have enough resources at the moment. In addition, my blog recently came off of a 3-4 month hiatus, which made things challenging because of a lack of followers. I plan on hosting Create-a-palooza in the near future (hopefully … Continue reading


This week’s poememe prompt is Nature. You can use items from actual nature you acquire from a nature walk. (‘Tis the season in my neck of the woods to find fallen leaves and twigs everywhere, LOL.) You can use nature inspired embellishments like stickers, flowers and leaves. Or take a photo of nature and make … Continue reading

Backdrops: Ink drips, tape and paint splatter…Oh MY!

I prepped my pages with paint, ink, incent ash, masking tape, and scrapbook paper just to name of few staples of my current backgrounds. These prepared backgrounds should save time and be less intimidating than a crisp white blank page. Below is the gallery of … Continue reading

POEMEMES: A Journal Journey & New Prompts to Begin…..

Poememes will return to Canvas Poetry Sept 10! To celebrate the return of the Poememes project I decided to create a mini-art journal from a spiral bound index card book (seen above)! I titled the mini-journal “lines” because I am going to write lines on each card and because the wooden bracket label wasn’t big enough … Continue reading

Crafting a Rolodex Box

My mom gave me a huge stack of vintage rolodex cards. As I began altering them I realized I needed to figure out what to do with them. I went the semi-traditional route and made a rolodex box rather than buy one. My box is large enough for plenty of altered rolodex cards, file cards … Continue reading
