Dreamer of Dreams by Jennie Atkinson

After discovering these sweet art journal pages on Jennie’s Live The Dream craft blog, I immediately knew I had to share the love.  Jennie really is one of the true mixed media greats.  I hope you’ve been inspired to break out your Gelli Plate and create your own work of art.  Click here and I will escort you over to Jennie’s blog so you can check out how easily these pages came together.

Do you enjoy creating backgrounds using your favorite stamps?  If so, then you are going to love the tips that Amy has to share.  I’m always on the lookout for different ways to use the stamps and tools that I already own.  You often hear me say “if we don’t play with our toys we will never know what they are capable of.”  With that said, I hope that you’ve been inspired to give Amy’s tips a try.  Click here and I will lead the way over to Jillibean Soup’s Blog so you can check out the additional photos along with instructions.  Kudos to you for sharing those smiles one handmade card at a time.

Memoranda NeedleCase and Pin Cushion

I guess it’s safe to say that I have a very eclectic style when it comes to crafting – big or small, I love them all!  I instantly fell in love with the beautiful Memoranda fabric by Tim Holtz.  This cute little NeedleCase is fun and easy to make and a perfect place to hold pins and needles when you’re hand sewing.  Just thinking out loud here, but you might want to make several because you know the girls are going to love them!  I highly recommend stopping by Richele’s blog so you can jot down the measurements.

Asian Chopped Chicken Salad by Ali

Who doesn’t love a good chopped salad on a hot summer day?  With the huge variety of prebagged chopped salads available everywhere, this yummy salad can be on the table in under half an hour.  So if you love Asian salad as much as I do, click here and I will be happy to escort you over to one of my favorite food blogs, Gimme Some Oven, so you can print out the recipe. You’re going to love it!

Our shows are in full swing now and you know what that means – it’s time to start planning that much needed weekend away with your creative peeps.  Click here and I will be happy to escort you over to our website so you can check out our show schedule.  With this many shows around the nation, the question is not what show you should attend, but rather how many shows you can attend!

Hugs, Lorraine
