A departure from my norm...

I was on Jury Duty last week, so I have a bit of catching up to do... I have one more box
that I haven't posted yet because its a secret that will be revealed shortly! Shhhh!

In the meantime...I bought this cross shaped box in New Mexico in November...I painted the inside of it, painted some bottle caps, made some skulls from polymer clay and painted them to
look like sugar skulls. Glued it all together and here's what I came up with.

I'm a big believer in the Mexican Day of the Dead...I love the idea behind it and the imagery.


I made this for a friend to give to her son for his wedding anniversary. She asked that I incorporate a few things....both the son & his wife have sapphire for a birthstone, they've been married for 21 years, he's in the Navy and they live in Hawaii. Here is what I came up with.
I wish I had gotten a better picture of the sand dollar...its real!

This is another pet memorial for a woman I know. She lost her Bailey a few weeks ago.

This was made for another Craftster swap...I wasn't actually a participant in the swap, but I volunteered to be an angel for someone when her partner flaked on her.
She said she had 2 daughters, so that's where the idea for little girls inside came from.

I like it so much, I'm making one for my own collection.

Valentine's for Sage Paper

These are samples I've made for the class I'll be teaching at the end of the month at Sage Paper Store. Basically everything in these can be found at the store other than the images.

I made this for my swap partner in the Craftster swap called "One Tiny Thing". She told me that she was Pagan and loved horses. This is Epona, the Celtic horse goddess.

The quote is by Edgar Allan Poe...

I really like the colors on this one. The colors of the stars gets a bit lost in the photos, though. On the left side, they are purple & copper and on the right they are purple & black.
