About Me

My photo
I would classify myself as an artist. It took me a while to finally accept that monicker, but that's what I am; AN ARTIST!!! I have a wonderful hubs that supports my "talents" in most all avenues, except maybe when the credit card bill comes in the mail...LOL And I have 4 great kids and 5 beautiful grandchildren that I love to pieces. Come on by and sit a spell and "STAMP 'TIL YA CRAMP!!! & "CROP 'TIL YA DROP!!!"

Sugar....ahhhhh honey honey!!!!1

I'm becoming a "SUGAR" once again....
for those that don't know...
that's what my grandchildren call me.

I'm SUGAR and scrubby is lovingly referred to as POPPY.

Another girly girl will be here sometime in late July.
They won't tell me any names that they have picked yet...so I have
given her the name GIRLY GIRL.

My daughter, Heather is having the new addition and 
she did tell me that she wanted the colors of pink and brown.

So this is the result of playing around with different things and 
I'm submitting this to Hobby Lobby 
for their submission call of their magazine. 

 Keeping my toesies crossed and hoping mine gets picked.


Coral cardstock
Brown cs for the shoes
Green polkadot DSP
Coral checks is from Modern Homemaker stack from October Afternoon
Cricut cart - Kate's ABC's
Tiny green baby buttons
and the embellies are some that I made....(directions are below). 

How to make sculpey roses

1. Roll out a very thin rope.  
Once you have the rope rolled out to the thickness you want
start rolling it into a coil.
I used a peachy skin tone color....you'll see why.

2. Stop coiling when you get to the desired size of rose you want
 and pinch off the rest of the rope.  

3. Bake the clay you choose according to the package directions. 

4. Using an old paint brush I dusted the baked rose with chalk and glittered chalk until 
I had the desired color.

5. I punch out some leaves with a MS punch and inked along the edges and used my stylus to create the center vein and attached to rose with glue dots. 

I love how these turned out.  I made a beaucoups* of these while watching TV one night. 

(*For you non-southerners - beaucoups definition)
 beau·coup  (bk, b-, b-k) also boo·coo or boo·koo (b-) Chiefly Southern U.S.
Many; much: beaucoup money.
n. pl. beau·coups also boo·coos or boo·koos
An abundance; a lot.
In abundance; galore: I like that beaucoup.

[French : beau, belfine, handsome; see beau + coupstroke; see coup.]

Until later, Sugarettes........Gotta split.........TFL!!!!!
