Full Circle Moment

This is what I woke up to this morning. I’m going to try and explain how this is a sea change for me. It’s going to be a total bummer of a story, but hang in there ....more

More in Viral Adventures

So, in case you’re not following along on the FB page, Atti’s viral moment is only picking up steam. We’re now in the “local news picks it up” segment of the journey and heading straight for “national news begins to pay attention.” I’ve had to set all my other responsibilities aside as I became his accidental full time momager and suddenly developed a tiny shred of empathy towards Kris Jenner. Just a shred ....more

Atti Goes Viral

The last couple of days have been wild, but I think that I should really just start accepting that as understood when I start writing my posts. I just don’t seem to run optimally unless I’m surrounded by chaos. I took what was supposed to be a super quick road trip (bookmark that story for another day) and yadda yadda yadda didn’t get home until two days later then expected ....more

BB8 Sugar Cookies

Over my Christmas break, aside from the surgery and recovery, the family time and holidays, two other important things happened. 1) While laid up in bed trying not to cough or laugh, I got totally hooked on watching Youtube videos about decorating sugar cookies with royal icing. 2) I saw Force Awakens ....more

Mason Jar Vignette

It just occurred to me how many different versions of dioramas I’m doing on this tree. The santa shadowbox, the holiday shadowbox, and now today’s Mason Jar Vignette. What can I say, it’s a trend ....more

Holiday Shadowbox

One of my favorite things to do as soon as Halloween is over is to go to any store even partially related to home decor and scope out their Christmas decorations. I snap iphone pics of things that I really like or want to figure out how to reverse engineer, and then I go off on a creative journey and wind up someplace completely different. Very very rarely do these projects end up looking at all like what inspired it ....more

Santa Shadowbox Ornaments

One of my favorite things to do from the end of Halloween straight through to the end of the year is go to all the fancy stores I can find and check out their Christmas decorations. The fancier the store the more I enjoy it because I just whip out my phone, snap a picture, and then go home and make it for a fraction of the price. Being a crafter is a superpower ....more

Mod Foam Ornaments

As I was scouring the internet looking for inspiration for this tree, I came across an image from an old Women’s Day magazine posted on a tumbler page. The second I saw it the whole tree coalesced in my head. Before that old magazine article I knew I had a bunch of vintage ideas floating around my brain, but “vintage” pretty much includes all of time, so I needed to narrow that down a bit ....more
