Shawkl’s BCQC 2 block

Shawkl’s BCQC 2 block

You know that I was working on my second crazy quilt block under the tutelage of Kathy Shawkl (check out my first here!). Well, I completed my beautiful disaster! And I do mean that, disaster.  Yes, yes, it looks alright but for some reason when I pulled it...

scrapping Peru again!

scrapping Peru again!

I churned out a page for my Peru album. I really want to see this project finished - I went there in 2007! The blank space will hold a short snippet about the bioarchaeology field school (which was conducted in the tent in the small center photo). Though this was the...

Springish cleaning

Springish cleaning

I've been putting my craft room through an overhaul recently. It might be a subconscious thing that I wish it were spring so if I start cleaning, maybe the weather will warm up? Blue skies will return? No? Well, I tried. So, my closet was a disaster - fabrics stuffed...

paper elephant

paper elephant

I am torn between saying the best thing about the internet is the wealth of knowledge and saying it is the wealth of generosity. I came across a free pattern of such a cute little elephant I had to try it out! Thanks to the Swedish material girls at materialisterna! I...

Scrapping Peru

Not only did I finish my pillow, but I finally, finally, finally tackled the scrapbook layout from my Peru fieldschool that has been sitting in a closet for literally years (I mean, the trip alone was in 2007!!). These pages are from my excursion to the Museo de la...

Boy hasn't had much of a chance to help me with the parts of the website puzzle I am too newb to figure out. He was looking in to it tonight, and then realized that there must have been a security hole as something odd appeared and now he is working on that...silly...

things on my table

I am sure you have been expecting pictures of my new kitchen but it has been really hectic here. Not only is there still much to be done with it, but Boy also has moved his company to a new location so that has taken a higher priority of our time. I will leave you...

Scrap: Chicago

Scrap: Chicago

My brother and his friend Jessica visited me once upon a time in 2004. They wanted to see Chicago and my brother had a great deal at the Crowne Plaza because at the time he was working at a sister hotel. Jessica was also able to pull some strings at some of the...

Scrap: Vegas region

Scrap: Vegas region

Like the Puerto Rico spread, you may also have seen some of these photos since they also were recently posted. Boy's family went to celebrate my sis-in-law's 21st birthday. We were there for a long weekend - the first day or so was spent doing the Vegas thing. We also...

Scrap: Puerto Rico

Scrap: Puerto Rico

My most favorite thing to scrap is travel. Loading the pages with mementos and such really stir the memories associated with them, and you can pick up so many things to use! Plus, they are great for showing others your vacations instead of just photo after photo after...

Scrap: sumo party

Scrap: sumo party

This is one of my least favorite layouts and I even used *construction paper*. I know, right? It's probably acidic and all that, but it's part and parcel to learning a craft. Mess-ups will happen and I'm curious to see how it will play out over the years so I'll let...

Scrap: Mazda Rev It Up

Scrap: Mazda Rev It Up

I've reclaimed most of my house (and all of my craftroom!) from the kitchen remodel so I thought I should finally post about my scrapbook adventures. When I scrap, I usually have four categories I use to create the layout: 1) paper and embellishments (stickers, tags,...

baby on the way

So I’ll be getting a pseudo-niece, as I like to call her (I’m not married into the family quite yet). I know I want to make her a killer blanket, and I’ve been tossing around the ideas of themes and possibilities and I think it will be a floor blanket, with detachable...
