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!

Coffee Pot Lady

It is time for another Fantastic anything goes challenge at Bleeding Arts this month.

I decided to alter an old fashion peculator coffee pot for my project that was in our camping box. 

This is what I started with.

I had my husband help me remove the handle from the pot and I saved the inside parts for another project.

For my colour I was inspired by this variegated brightly colour wool that I have in my stash. 

I found this child's hat at a thrift store, painted it with Gesso, then added different colours of waxes and added a metal flower, and metal trim that I also coloured with waxes.

For my coffee pot I added coke bottle eyes, buttons for the eye balls which I painted,  and part of a spoon for each of the ears. 

I added some old funky glasses which I added some small flowers to. 

This was a fun project for me and a little bit crazy. 

Hope you will join us this month at Bleeding Arts. Create your anything goes/mixed media project and enter it here

Have a creative week.
