i had fun doing this card from the recent card making mag!! I used my little mouse stamp and glossy accents. On the front in the corner i have a push button to play "twinkle little star". LOVED making these - but they took VERY VERY long! lol.

Well i completed an album for my friends wedding this past weekend, and of course, finished it at the very last minute and failed to get photos of it!! So i've instead posted a photo that Angie took of one of my felted pieces! She's such a good photographer!

The "fairy chimneys" of Capadoccia Turkey were so amazing, apparently left years and years ago from volcano's they have been "scratched out" inside and used now for dwellings and hotels and whatever. What an enchanting place it was to visit! WE went to an underground city that went 8 levels underground!! Kinda spooky!

Was it really March when i was last on here?! How did that happen!
our family trip to Greece and Turkey was amazing and included visiting all around the UK to loved ones as well!! Since then i've taken a felting upholstery course in New Hampshire and just now have returned from the Philippines where it was super humid and 35 degrees+ but had a lovely time at my friends wedding and (of course) went on the honeymoon! I was so intrigued by everything i saw in my travels, especially in Turkey, as you can see the carpets, textiles were amazing! Currently we are developing property and building a store!! It's been an exciting 2010 so far! I feel very blessed.

We walked to Mexico!!! And i actually purchased the hand painted sink that i've wanted for years!!! LOL Francis had to carry it over the border - it was wrapped and taped up in a dog food packaging!!! The border patrol called the agriculture inspector!! OMG so funny. Cant wait to redo the bathroom now!!

I apologize for the poor quality of the photo - the paper crafting is so lovely. I am placing an order at Ranger and have 2 days left of the show. There's new colors of distressed ink pads, new sizzix dies - i could add on to my order and bring in any items to the UK that i can get before i come in April if you let me know!! Maureen - what was the wendy stamp Wendy Vecchi? i'm still looking. remind me - what stamps you already have (i got your atc card covers)

When i was in Russia there were Mary Icons everywhere. Then when my cousins took us to a wonderful village called Lincoln we went into the cathedral and i saw the icon again. I have attached the photo of the icon from the cathedral that has inspired me to create this pin. The face is polymer clay that is dusted with perfect pearls. I've machine felted the body and embellished with sequins and beads. I'm in love.
