handmade holiday

The Nester is hosting a Handmade Holiday party. A party? I love a party. Let's go.

For me, handmade started before Stephanie was born. Actually, we could go way back to childhood, but let's just start a little further along in life. I started with painting. I love painting! I took tole painting classes and was hooked. Sometimes I use other artists' patterns and sometimes I design my own stuff. What you see here is my own design with the exception of one inspiration.

Check out these cute magnets.


You may have seen this in a previous post sitting in my front hallway.


Here's proof I'll paint on just about anything. This is a barely used purse I found at a thrift store. This sweet angel was the inspiration of Renee Mullins.


Tissue anyone?

I can't just be satisfied with one craft! No way. I also do paper crafts. I make cards, scrapbooks, and whatever else I can figure out.


Urban summer criss cross card.

This birthday mini mini album turned out so cute!

Remember home ec in high school? I took that. I also took a sewing class. Earlier this year I was reunited with my sewing machine. 


A cute little tote will be any young girl's dream.


A spooky skirt set is just right for Halloween.


Don't forget somewhere to put your cosmetics or other smallish things.


Keep track of important stuff with your own stylish Bee Journal.


I have two Etsy stores you can visit to see more. The Barn Door has all my painted items. Daffodils and Daisies has everything else.

Visit The Nester to see tons of other very talented ladies and what they hand craft. Let's support a Handmade Holiday!
