Paper Art....

I have been on such an adventure the past few weeks. The OWOH (One World One Heart) Magic Carpet Ride. If this is your first time visiting my blog then please go click on the January Archive post..find the OWOH post and enter to win one of many treasures I'm giving away. The event doesn't end until February 15th so you still have plenty of time. Now go get on that carpet and RIDE!!!!

I have discovered some very talented artist on this journey and have found several kindred spirits. Thank you Lisa for bringing so many of us together.

Several of the blogs I have visited are about paper art or crafts. I have to say that the paper bug has bitten me and bitten me HARD!!! I started digging through some of my art stash to see if I had anything to work with. Well...what do you know...I did!!! I had enough to make two bookmarks. I haven't done any paper crafts in a very long time and I see why it's so popular and there are so many artist doing it. Now...I just need to save up so I can go and buy some paper supplies...LOL!!!

The two bookmarks are going to be for two of the Chazman's main teachers. His homeroom teacher and his speech teacher. I think for not having done this in a very...very...very long time that they turned out fairly well. I'm not feeling quite so much like my normal ding-a-ling self either...I came up with a really cool saying for the backs.

I think that the teachers will like their special Valentine's gift from Chaz and it will be something that they can use for a long time. I want to thank all the wonderful paper gals out there that inspired me....Thank you Thank you and now I want you all to turn around...bend I can kick your hiney's for 
getting me involved in yet another art form.....LOL!!!!!

While I was working on the bookmarks I was baking a faery and baby unicorn. Please check back as I will be posting some photos of them soon. Until then...


P.S. Ya'll know I would never kick anyone's hiney......right????  xoxoxo


  1. Those turned out great! What a great idea for teacher gifts.

    All these blogs I've been visiting have been amazing. There are so many creative people out there and what a wonderful way to get them all together. I have loved the mixed media stuff and also want to try some new stuff now.

    Hope you are having a great week so far!

  2. Very pretty! I love the sparkles. :) Theresa

  3. Hi Debbie...I so agree with you..there are some really creative folks out there. It's been great seeing all the different types of art...I think I'm going to be visiting and reading blogs for a very, very long time!!! I hadn't done any paper crafts in what seems like forever and then seeing all the blogs that do I just had to get back into it...thank goodness for supportive hubbys!! Looking forward to seeing what you are going to be doing.

    Hi Theresa....thank you so much. I so enjoyed playing in the glitter today.

    Hugs to ya both!!

  4. These are so beautiful. Glad you had fun playing.

  5. I know just how you feel...I want to make art dolls, paper crafts, bead...but my family wants to eat, LOL!
    The book markers came out wonderful and are such a thoughtful gift for teachers.

  6. I'm with ya, after seeing all the paper beauties at OWOH, I was inspired to make altered valentines. So much fun, and SO satisfying to do:)
    Yours are fabulous- the teachers will cherish these special gifts!

  7. Hi Stephanie....thank you for the compliment. Would love to see the ones you made!!! I wanted to make all of Chaz's classmates one but didn't have the supplies..hubby is so nervous and is trying to keep me FAR away from any craft stores...LOL!!

  8. I am sure the teachers will love the bookmarks, I know I would! Then I scrolled down to find your followers widget and I LOVE the Halloween countdown:)
