About Me

My name is Susan and I'm a regular mom who discovered in her .. umm - later in life that I like crafty stuff.

I am now happily remarried to my own version of 'Peetra". I have 3 children, plus one stillborn son in my heart always. A 'rescued' Siberian Husky named Oliver, Saved Luna Fish & feeder to many birds in the area ;)

A Multiple Sclerosis Diagnosis in 2012 put me behind in my crafting blog but I am so much better and intend to get this back going. Thanks for the support crafters!

Mixed Media Stamping

I finally sent out all the Creative Festival Fans their inspiration booklet and sample! I hope they end up on here! My New years resolution involves using the blog more effectively.

Close to My Heart Corporate is going to be changing over its TV show from Art & Soul to something BRAND NEW.. coming soon!

Here is the last segment of Art & Soul which has some great information in it. It’s the most versatile mixed media album ever! Learn how to stamp with pizzazz on the My Creations® Mix & Mingle album’s clear plastic and chipboard pages. Then watch it transform from an album into a wall hanging, a banner, a card, or use pages from it on your scrapbook layouts. You’ll also learn how to create gorgeous B&T Duos® paper using a faux painting technique with Liquid Glass. Jeanette Lynton shares her fully compiled calendar she’s been creating page by page and showcasing on her blog each month this year. Truly inspirational!

To find out more about the calendar pages shown in this episode, go to www.jeanettelynton.com or view the October, November, or December calendar pages.

I'm going to try to get out more information on Workshop Kits to go. They are just fantastic little kits for cardmaking/scrapbooking or both. After you make the kits CTMH provides online information on what to do with the left over paper! Maybe it will become Wednesday Workshops ...I might go for that next week!

Keep Scrappin',
