Welcome to my crafting blog. After retirement, my husband and I moved to a beautiful location in the Okanagan area of British Columbia. I love all paper crafts including mixed media, journaling and cards. I also dabble in papermaking, photography, fibre art, and altered books. I am an active member of several card and mixed media groups and on the design team of several challenge blog. I love the world of blogging, it has opened many doors for me. My favourite quote is by Maya Angelou. “You can’t use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have.” I hope you join me in my search for my creative side. Thanks for stopping by!

Re-cycle,Re-Purpose, Re-invent - Anything Goes with Recycling

Christmas is coming and I made this Christmas scene in my book case for the holidays and for the Anything Goes challenge (must be recycling) at  Recycle, Re-Purpose and Re-Invent. 
All of the digital images that I used in the Christmas scene are from the Christmas collection of CS Designs and can be found here.  I specially love the angel. 
I used some small white Christmas trees that I used in a previous years project that I sprayed with Elmers glue and sprinkled with green glitter.  I used some blocks of wood from my hubby`s scrap pile for the presents and the large tree sentiment. The wrapping and ribbon are recycled Christmas scraps. 
To complete the scene I added some little blocks and shredded some white plastic bags for the snow.  Hope you enjoy my project.  Pop over to the  Recycle, Re-Purpose and Re-Invent blog to see the creations of the rest of the design team. Hope you will join in. 
Have a great holiday season and we hope to see you back here again in 2015.
