Pocket Full of Memories Blog Hop

Join in as I participate in the "Pocket Full of Memories Blog Hop!"

Here is my Fleur de Lis Pocket Mini Album! What fun library pockets are to create with! Love it..... I created this mini album as a Birthday Album for my Birthday Art Event and thought what fun it would be to add pockets to add little pieces of memories in! I really love how the pockets turned out using many pinks, creams and golds! Mini albums are one of my favorite things to create!

Hop onboard the Kinderstampo Blog Hop......

So glad your here to meet the Kinderstampo New Design Team Members!!

If you arrived here from Celine Regnier's blog~

then you have arrived at the correct place!!

I'm so excited to be apart of this fabulous group that's motto is Live,Craft & Inspire!...

Hi Ya'll! I'm a mom/wife/teacher/artist/creator from a small town outside of Ft. Worth, Texas! I love to wear many hats!! I have been creating since I was a small girl with my mom & grandmother. Luckily my daughter Lexi has the same passion for creating! In real life~ I teach 1st grade! I love seeing the spark in a 6 year olds eyes when they realize they can read for the 1st time! It is very similiar to the spark I see in other ladies eyes when they realize they really are creative and enjoy the process of bringing something artistic to life! When I'm not being a mom, wife, daughter, teacher or artist you will find me enjoying my small towns Friday night Football Games and traveling to new and exciting Art Events!
I would call my style of crafting as Shabby Chic! I love pinks, creames & anything Covered in Glitter! I love to create mixed media art, scrapbook & stamping projects & jewelry! I love Vintage~~ I enjoy the hunt of finding that something perfect as well as remaking it!! Anything that comes within my reach is subject to being altered!!! Creating makes me so happy~~~ I have to do something creative every day!
I love inspiring others with new techniques and ideas! It is so much fun to see someone get excited when they create something new and finish a project! I love to host Art Events and see women from all walks of life join together to create, giggle and just have a great time!

Since I was a little girl~ I have loved going to the State Fair of Texas! I've passed this love on to Lexi!! My favorite part of the day is grazing... love the corny dogs, Texas shaped nachos & cotton candy! I also love the Creative Arts Building!
Last year I decided to enter a few Artsy Crafty items into the fair... I got 2 Honorable Mentions!
This year I decided to enter.. I think 15 items!! I actually placed with 9 items this year.. Very exciting!!! :)
It totally gives me an excuse to "Have" to go to the Fair!! Not that I really need an excuse... it is a yearly tradition!
Here are some of my projects.....
