MeMa's Craft GiveAway Winner

Howdy My Dear Sweet Friends

I hope your weekend was fabulous!! 
I had a great little surprise waiting for me in my mailbox.  

I had the sweetest email from Lesia from MeMa's Crafts Blog letting me know I was a winner in one of her Giveaway's.  I had no idea what was in the package but I couldn't wait for the mailman to deliver it.  I was finally able to get to my PO Box and this is what I found inside.  


I was beyond delighted!!  Thanks so much Lesia.  It was such an amazing surprise and so incredibly generous of you to have such fabulous giveaways.  It seems like I rarely win anything but you knocked my socks off with this package of such gorgeous Spellbinders Nestabilities/Shapeabilities.  I have been wanting to add Spellbinders Dies to my collection for quite some time now.  It's funny because about a month ago I was finally able to get my Big Shot.  

The link to MeMa's Crafts is shown above and I hope you will check out her blog and join in the fun.  And stay tuned - I am working on my own special giveaways.

Thanks so much Lesia!!

With hugs and smiles

Mixed Media World Challenge - Anything Goes on Wood

Happy Happy Sunday My Dear Sweet Friends

It's time for our next challenge at Mixed Media World  This challenge is "Anything Goes on Wood".  The DT made some more amazing projects this challenge and I hope you will visit our challenge blog and check everything out as well as join in the challenge.  There is plenty of time to make something for our challenge.  Our sponsor this month is Artist Trading Post who is giving the lucky winner of this challenge a $20.00 (UK) Voucher.


My DT project is an 8"x8" piece of wood that I have had for quite some time.  I painted it with a base coat of blue (the trees).  I added lots of other colors with various Distress paints from Tim Holz.

I then used the tree stencil to protect the blue color of the trees to add the other colors around the entire base and allowed time for drying.  I then used a variety of objects such as leaf shape buttons, fabric lace, decorative floral supplies, molding paste, gesso, E6000 and seed beads.  The colors of Distress Paints I used are:  wild honey, peeled paint, mustard seed, antique linen, brushed pewter, spun sugar, antiqued bronze, barn door, broken china, salty ocean, chipped sapphire and fired brick.
