Out and About with Anita

My friend Anita is always up for an adventure. I can call her anytime and she is ready to go! It's so nice that she lives close by so there is little travel time needed to get where we want to go. We usually stay close to home because there is so much to do in our town! For example, the Goodwill (GW) store closed and reopened a couple blocks down the street (even closer to me now, though it was close before!) We attended the grand opening and it was very crowded with people and stuff to buy! Everyone was so excited to be there!

It didn't take long to fill my shopping cart. We had these yellow dishes in our home several years back and I gave them to a friend. I never had the serving pieces though and couldn't pass them up.

Embellished Photo Cards

What's a woman to do when she loves to make cards and has old photos, glitter, pearls, rhinestones, lace and ribbons sitting around? Well, she should make embellished photo cards, of course!

Valentine's Day Heart Challenge

My friend Becky invited Missy and me to accept a mixed media Valentine's Day challenge. We were to decorate a heart. Her inspiration came from the Artsy VaVa blog here. I wanted to use this photo of my dad and his sister for my masterpiece.

Cards & Journals

I made some cards with the St. Patrick's Day die cuts I listed in my Etsy shop. I added embellishments and glitter to the die cuts, and ribbon to the card on the bottom right. The shapes were cut with an electronic cutting machine.

Grow Your Blog & Giveaway

Welcome to this year's Grow Your Blog (GYB) party, hosted by Vicki of 2 Bags Full! I am Patty Antle and this is my third year participating in this fun party where we meet bloggers from all over the world! When Vicki held her first GYB party, I had just started my blog so it was an instrumental event that helped me learn more about the blogging world. If you are a new blogger, I hope this will help you too!

Vintage Girl On Chair Card

It amazes me how my creativity comes together. A few weeks ago, I had designed this card from several vintage kids' photos that I love. But I knew it wasn't complete, so I set it aside.

My Happy List: Creativity

1. My 2015 Etsy banners were put to good use as photo ops to bring in the new year. We took one banner with us for a party at French Lick and another adorned the mantle of my friend, Anita.
