Rainbows in Twilight


AHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!! There have been many rain clouds hanging over my head lately. But today, I caught a rainbow! I am one of three Guest Designers for Twilight Tuesday Inspiration Challenge!!! I cannot explain how badly I wanted this. With all that's been going wrong recently, I needed this. And, I worked my ass off... it worked! We needed to submit one of the previous challenges and create a new Twilight piece to the admin team for judging. I submitted my "Void" project (see my Void blog from April 11th.) and a mini album all about the Twilight Midnight Release Party (and my after-party). I will show you the mini album I made in my next blog (no brain to upload photos now... but you can check out a couple of pics on the TTIC Blog!).
I've just gotta say thank you to all the TTIC gals. They're all fantabulous and I am honored to be a part of the TTIC experience. I so look forward to creating awesome projects right along with them. I've already had so much fun with their challenges, I cannot wait to do even more! And now... I'm a Guest Designer!!!!!!!! I'm so proud!!!!!!
If you haven't been to the Twilight Tuesday site, PLEASE go and check it out! This is about more than just Twilight, this is about great designers. Oh, and a whole lotta fun too! http://www.twilighttuesday.com/

Deco Art and Andy Skinner Blog Hop Finale

Hello! It's time for the finale of the DecoArt and Stampendous blog hop. Have you enjoyed yourself this week? I bet you've got some new techniques that you want to try. I know I do! I am super stoked about my project for today. And it solves a dilemma that we've had in my kids' room for a while.

What you see above is 2 pieces of PVC. And some fab DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics! So, what am I doing with PVC, you ask? Well, my mom bought my son a light saber(Darth Vader's) for Christmas, and he wanted to display it, but we weren't really sure where in his room, and how. I wanted something cooler than hooks, and we thought it would be neat to have the light saber vertical, instead of horizontal. Plus, there was a fab spot for it if it hung in that direction. So, my husband came up with the PVC pip idea, and I altered the pieces.



The end cap holds the base, and the small piece of pipe holds up near the end. And the 2 pieces are spaced out enough so that it's easy…
