Will and Fiona

Will is a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel & he's 7 years old. He's been quite excited to have Fiona in the house. My son snapped this photo of the two of them together.

Introducing Fiona

I've been a little preoccupied this week so I haven't had a new post since last Sunday. We have a new addition to our family and I'd like to share a few pictures with you of Fiona our 10 month old papillon.
She loves to cuddle and be held. She's not too sure about our CKC spaniel who is quite a bit larger than her. He is very excited to have a new buddy and she's a bit overwhelmed with him right now.

recycled Lipton tea jars

There is a saying in the south that if the Good Lord made anything better than iced tea, he kept it for himself. We drink a lot of tea around here. My husband and son love sweet tea & I drink it unsweetened. My husband and son also love MickeyD sweet tea for a buck!
This summer I had a collection of empty tea jars so I wanted to see what I could do with them. I was inspired by a Plaid video showcasing Mod Podge and glass jars.
I adapted the project so I could call on some of my digital graphic stash to make these candle holders.
For my digital graphics I printed a paper of antique maps from  Miss Crow's Magickal Emporium™ ,
Jaguarwoman's "Wetlands" Backgrounds and my all time favorite designer Miki Ferkul.I have a lot of Miki's kits and I cannot remember which one that this print came from.
I printed these and applied them to the jars with Mod Podge. I opted for battery operated candles for safety reasons.
Hopefully tomorrow I can take photos of recycled pro…

my last wedding tile

I thought I would share my latest wedding tile. I need to make a few graduation, housewarming & a baby girl tile soon. Then I should be caught up,lol!

Glass etched dish

This was a wedding gift that I made this summer. I have glass etched a few glasses and Christmas ornaments, but this was the first baking dish that I've ever done. I need to personalize a few of my dishes that I take to family reunions and church dinners!

Tote bag

This was one of my first fabric projects to cut. I took my mother-in-law to  a senior citizen lunch and bingo game & I won this bag which came from the Dollar Tree,lol! I got to pick my prize from several different things & I chose this one because I knew I could decorate it!

Doggie mat

I wanted to make a doggie mat for my CKC spaniel & I came up with this. I've been a fan of the Mod Podge Rocks blog for some time. I've dabbled in mod podge for years even before there was an internet,lol! I used designs from Lettering Delights Simple Shapes & fabric to make this mat for my dog. He seems pleased with it too.

Outdoor lantern

This summer I found a really  cute recycling idea at In my own style using an old mop stick, tuna can & a glass globe. I had the stick & tuna can so I followed the blogger's advice & went to the local Salvation Army thrift store to find my globe. To my delight I found the perfect size for my project. I also found a huge globe & I'm still looking for a can that I can use to create the next project.
I used brushed metal spray paint, stick, tuna can and a plastic coke cap to make mine. I also bought a battery operated tealight for the lantern.

Floating frame wedding gift

I used the same file from the previous large tile that I posted. It took me so long to weed this one too!

Floating frame

This was my first attempt at a floating frame. I must say that it was easier for me to do the larger tiles than these smaller framed ones.

another wedding tile

A wedding tile

This is a photo of the first wedding tile that I made this summer. I've discovered that making tiles can become addicting! For this tile I purchased a monogram set from The file I purchased was this great monogram set "Monogram 6" This files come with 6 different file formats with the entire alphabet. A total of 156 files when you count all those file types.
At our annual family reunion we always give out door prizes. I'm thinking that this would be a great idea. My brother and I are in charge of the 2013 reunion so that gives me a little time to make a few,lol!
