Hilton Head Getaway

Hilton Head, South Carolina
Memory Making Then And Now

My husband and I have been making memories for many years along the South Carolina shoreline.  We first visited Hilton Head in 1986, with baby in tow.  Those were some of the best memories as firsts....

Fast forward to 2014 and we are there yet another year.  Some loved ones however, sadly now missing.....others find themselves there for the first time.   Our baby grew up, married, and now has his own precious baby boy! What fun to have brand new generation grandson at the beach and to see the wonder in his eyes, just as we saw in his dad's eyes all those years ago! 

Even though the formula evolved, fun, love and laughter (and plenty of good food) are constant variables.  And... this time in SC, it was even a summer for having a short, but sweet, visit with a treasured friend.  hehe...she is the one with the tiara in the video!!

Vacations and getaways are wonderful and cherished.  Memories made are kept forever in the hearts of all those lucky enough to share them.  

Take a moment and let me share some of the highlights from our vacation with family this year.  There is a particular blonde, curly haired fellow that steals the show... and, oh yeah, a "mature" woman who still can rock a two piece.  ; )  

Hoping you too had the opportunity to enjoy some memory making of your own this summer...

Painting With Pearls

Sharing some inspiration for everyone... painting Amazing Crafting Products molds and castings with Jacquard Pearl Ex Pigments {or Alumilite Metallic Powders and Alumidust}!

I must admit, I am not a painter. It is something that I want to do better – but have not had the opportunity to work at much to mark improvement. However, I do love painting my Amazing Mold Putty impressions with Pearl Ex because it gives instant gratification to this wannabe painter! It is as foolproof as using a coloring book, and coloring in the lines. Ahhh! Gorgeous success.

Here are some of my pieces that were easy to "color" and fill with resin and which make a pretty bracelet. A bit more color with metal paste was also added to make things pop! 

Happy Crafting!

My Journal Pendants Featured In PAGES, A Cloth Paper Scissors Special Publication

Homegrown Journal Pendant
Featured In The Latest Edition Of 

Last summer I was thrilled to meet Jenn Mason.  Jenn is a dynamo, filling many roles at Interweave.  She manages the CREATE venue where I taught workshops last July in Somerset, NJ.  She is also the editorial director for Cloth Paper Scissors and PAGES..... 

I met Jenn after learning that my article had been accepted into the PAGES publication.  We were then able to talk a bit about some of those creative endeavors that were near and dear to me, with some frame of reference.  She was so generous with her time during our exchange.  It was like talking with an art sister extraordinaire.  I am hopeful to work more with Jenn and Interweave in the future.

Okay, back to my article.......  It turned out fabulously.  It was an early Christmas present for this happy girl.  The folks at PAGES did a larger than life, splendid job with my images and story.  I was blown away!!  The entire issue boasts of beautiful graphics and easy to follow instructions for all those beautiful creative book projects featured.  I would encourage you to go to Barnes and Noble, Books A Million, Joann Fabric and Crafts and find a copy of your own.  Of course, you could always get one from them online directly.  

Here is my sneak peak article.  Thank You Jenn!

I love real metal just like the next person... However, I hate when my earrings wear me down. These replicas of original metal shotgun shell bottoms make fabulous light and bright pieces to dangle from your ears without worry.

They sport the look of worn steel bezels, with a bit of bling in the center. Perfect : )

Learn how to make these fancy
dancers in the tutorial below:
