Skinny Heart Swap

I need to make 5 of these. The pages are 4 x 8; they'll be made into a book.....

Being impatient can be a GOOD thing!

I was never one for waiting. I want it and I want it NOW has always been my mantra. So why should I be patient when waiting for something to dry?


I used my Color Mists from Outside the Margins on Fabriano hot pressed paper. Well, in my I WANT IT NOW state, I decided to use some paper towel to help the drying process along. When I lifted the paper towel, I had this beautiful dotted pattern going across the papers:
Now how cool is this! See, being impatient can sometimes pay off! I connected the link to the color mists above. Just click on the words "color mists".

My Pillow Journal

back (below) it's not the best. Everything started out the same size and then...POOF! all changed. I actually love the way it came out for my first one. I don't think I'll make my others this large, but this was a great learning experience. This is 8x8. I'm going to make the next one half the size so I can travel with it.

Teesha Moore Pillow Journals

I was blog cruising and found this link on my friend Joanne's blog. It's a set of 4 videos by Teesha Moore on how to make pillow journals. If you are a fabric whore like me, you have a TON of FABRIC that needs to be used. I strongly suggest that you check out these videos. If anything, the journals are worth looking at!

3 Glasses of wine and Celestial Zetti, Act IV

Wahoo! I'm roasted and finished! I just love the weekends. Good wine, good music, good art...and everything Zetti. Time to watch True Blood....pleasant dreams...........

Celestial Zetti Tags, Act III

Sometimes I move like the speed of lightening. Other days I move like a turtle. Today I'm a turtle. I love making these tags, but my Muse has taken a little vacation to Cabo, while I'm here doing the laundry, going to Costco and cleaning the house! Where is she when I need her? Sometimes life is just unfair!

I have 2 more tags to make.....I'm hoping to get them done TODAY!

Celestial Zetti Tags

I'm in a tag swap with an awesome theme..."Celestial Zetti". Each tag is 2 1/2 by 3 3/4 and must have something celestial in it. It also needs to be as zetti as possible. I'm trying to spread my zetti wings. I still feel like I'm too stiff, but it's getting better.

The background paper is the deli paper technique that I posted about last time. The orange tag was covered with old newsprint first and then covered with the deli paper. I'm having too much fun with this paper!!!
