Jay McCarroll visited the studio this week while Warren was in and my sweet darling got an autograph for me.  I LOVE Jay!!  I rarely sit still long enough to watch a whole TV show but I will tune into Project Runway no matter what.  I’ll even watch re-runs and that’s un heard of for me!  […]

Catching Up – The Christmas Crafts Edition

I’ve been so bad about blogging the past several months so I thought I’d do a quick catch up on some of the projects I’ve worked on.     A tree for the kitchen made from miniatures and clear/irridescent bubble looking ornaments. I put a strand of multi colored lights on it, glued it into a […]
