More Journal/Sketchbook/Planner

Below are my last two layouts for my summer document life journal. The bird theme has been my fave so far.  I’m so glad I was introduced to this neat way of documenting at the workshop I went to at the beginning of my summer.  It combines scrapbooking, journaling, sketching, making pretty stuff, quotes, etc…and I LOVE IT!  It’s art, right!?!  That is why I LOVE IT!






E600 Creation

My friend Tammy showed me this awesome mirror she made out of all kinds of bling and pretty stuff. The handle was so unique–A BUTTER KNIFE! She even gave me a couple of knives to start my own. Wahooo!

Ya gotta have a butter knife, a mirror, a collection of beads, bling or whatever AND that awesome E6000 glue.

Tammy provided the knife and I fold an OLD mirror.  My collage collection ended up coming from all over my shop.  I stayed with more of a silver, pearl, glassy bling combo.  You’ll see.  Scroll through my pics…






So I have to work some on the front tomorrow, but I love the collage on the back. Yay for today’s creation!!!

Here are two other creations I put together recently :


I do love just making all kinds of things. If I see it and like it–then I wanna try and MAKE IT! My shop is full of all kinds of things I can create. I enjoy just going in there and putting stuff together. I also started doing some collage inside bottle caps tonight. Who knows what I’ll do with those. Recycling stuff is one of my faves.

What do I do with all this stuff you ask?

I hang a lot of it in my shop and decorate here and there. I have no idea what I’m going to do with some of it. I wish someone would sell it for me. A friend of mine suggested I do an ebay or etsy shop. I’m sure that would be fun and more than likely profitable, but school is about to start again and I’ll be super busy. I will still be able to create some, but there’s no time for a business. Maybe some year. HA!

I’m getting sooooooooooooooo excited about going back to work. Most people think that is INSANE, but if you are one of those that really loves your job, hopefully you can relate.

Ok, enough BABBLE!


A SHOUT OUT To My Glue Gun


(picture is not my actual glue gun –stock photo)

An ODE TO MY GLUE GUN by Rita Clawson

My glue gun can help me create so many items.

I can adhere fabric and buttons and gems.

It allows me to create magnets and assemble flowers.

Oh, it has sooooooo many powers!

If I could wear it in a holster and not burn myself,

I’d be even more talented, even more creatively stealth.

The heat of it’s tip can cause such pain,

but when handled with care, you have so much to gain.

It can hem paints and create appliques and even

unite wood and metal to create awesome trays.

Browse youtube, google and pinterest

to find something to fit your style the best.

I bet that glue gun will fit the bill

for ANY project that gives you a creative thrill!

Ode to my glue gun

for all its pleasure and fun.

Ode to my glue gun

…which I could not GLUE WITHOUT…

Even though when safety is not my first thought

It makes me holler and SHOUT (maybe even cry a little)!


As I’ve said before, you never know what you will get when you show up in my little blog spot!  I’m sure there is SOMETHING you could write an “ode” to.
