Squirrels Gone Nutz October Hop!

The Squirrel Squad is at it again! Our monthly hops are all about using old supplies we’ve squirreled away and forgotten about. Each month we pick either a supply or technique, and a prompt to go with it. For October, we’re doing the Galaxy technique (typically for making backgrounds), and the prompt is Celebrations. Now, […]

May JDS Mid-Month Inspiration and Farewell

Sad news today… this is my final post for Jan’s Digi Stamps. After 1.5 wonderful years on the DT, I find myself needing to step down from the team. My hands continue to worsen and typing is something that aggravates the pain. Writing the posts would probably still be doable, but leaving comments and love […]

April 2CCC DT Post with Sheepski Designs

Have you ever had a card that almost refused to be made, despite the clear image you had in your head for it??? This was one of those for me but I’m so glad I stuck with the original idea cause I am super pleased with the results. Today’s card is my contribution to the […]

October 2CCC DT Post with Beccy’s Place

MFT Summer Camp Day 1 & MFT Color Challenge 121

Take 2 on Day 1 of MFT’s Summer Camp! This is another fully watercolored card, painted with the 36 color set of Gansai Tambi’s. I need to use these more often cause I just saw they now offer a 48 pan set but I refuse to buy it (yet) with so much paint left in […]

MFT Camp Create 2019 – Day 2 – Remarkable Resist

Today’s camp activity is called Remarkable Resist. For my card I used MFT’s Wavy Coloring Book Background with Versamark and platinum embossing powder. I love this background, especially for summer because it looks like waves in the ocean to me. Once that was heat set, I used several shades of Zig Clean Color Brush Markers […]

3D Reindeer

I’m pleased to announce that all my presents are wrapped, all the Christmas cards mailed, and all the cookies baked.  Whoo-hoo!  OK, I had help from my awesome hubby to get the last of the presents wrapped yesterday, but I did everything else myself.  With 2 whole days before Christmas with no lingering to-do list, […]

Welcome to Misplaced Mojo!

One day I will look back at this day in either wonder or regret.  After years of stalking and lurking hundreds of other crafty bloggers, I have finally come out of the craft closet to post my own projects for the world to see… or just my closest friends who will likely be the only […]
