New Year Masquerade Mask and Clutch Swap

Another swap at A Little Scrap of Heaven that I did.  This one was hosted by Cynthia Anderson also
We were to make a mask and clutch.  Cynthia make the template for the clutch.  We could use hers or another one.  I used hers.   My swap partner Linda Anderson likes butterflies so when I saw the butterfly mask I had to have it.
I painted the mask with Folk Art Metallic Sequin Black.  I used a teal braided trim that I got at Hobby Lobby and I made the flower from a vintage lace that I found in Indiana.  The center of the flower is a vintage ear ring that I took the back off of.  I also used the other on on the clutch.  I also painted the clutch with the same paint.
The bling is from Michael's

 Had lot's of fun making this. Thanks for stopping by and taking a look at my creations.  Please feel free to leave comments for I do read them.  Also have videos of these swaps link on the right side.  I must apologize for the clicking noise on my camera.  I don't know why it does that maybe from dropping it to many times.  Have to get anew one soon.

Altered Journal and Pen Swap

Journal and Pen
 I did a swap on A Little Scrap Of Heaven and we were to alter a Journal  and a Pen.  My swap partner was Gloria Westerman.  This swap was hosted by Cynthia Anderson.  So here is my journal and Pen.

Had a great time making these .   I used a 5x7 journal that I had gotten at the Dollar Tree sometime ago.  I covered it with  batting then cover it with polished satin.  Edged it with lace.  The flower was made from the same lace as what I edged it with.   Used black feathers.  I also made the little butterfly that is on the flower.
The pen was a pen form Michael's and I first wrapped it in white ribbon then used some pink trim and around the top is the same lace that I used on the journal.  I also used black feathers and a pick bling in the center.  The pen still moves up and down.  

Thanks for stopping by and I would love to read your comments

First Post of the New Year!!!!

I hope that everyone had a great Holiday and that things are beginning to get back to normal.  We spent the Holidays with our middle son and his wife here in Nashville.  We had a real nice time but would have loved to have all the kids here.
Now on to what I hope to do this year is keep this blog more up to date than what I have in the past.  I also want to participate in more things as far as my crafting goes.  I also plan on getting my Etsy Shop going again.
I am trying my hand at doing videos on Youtube.   So far they are just what I have made or received but I hope to do some tutorials.  If you look at my side bar you will see the videos of the things I have been doing this last month.
So feel free to leave comments and please come back often for I plan on doing better
