  1. You have such a talent! And those face stencils (So you say you can’t draw) – brilliant! I can’t live without Mod Podge since I’m a decoupager!

  2. Thank you for all the tips! One thing I can’t live with out is gesso. I love how I can just apply one coat at times and the background is cover or how I can make texture with it.

    I love how you made stensils out of your girls. They are so beautiful and unique. 🙂

    Thank you,


  3. WOW!!! So many cool ideas!! Thank you for sharing them all with us!! These are all awesome!!

    My favorite tools and supplies would be dies and paper!!

  4. Thanks for so much fun inspiration! Yep, I just HAD to bookmark your site. 🙂
    I can’t live without all the paper in my stash (& those yet to be… haha) as I am mostly a card maker, but love making ornaments & shadow boxes, too.
    Your stencils … amazing artwork. Oh yeah, and I simply adore your beautiful hair!

  5. So many great ideas. My favorite crafting supply is paper so my many kinds of paper give me a starting point for creating several of your ideas. Thanks for sharing them all!

  6. I think that my can’t do without item is gorgeous papers. I love many different kinds…
    Your stencils are wonderful. I am that person who really can’t draw, so they would be perfect for me. I love your images, and hope that you find just the right ways to market them!!!!

Thank you for leaving your sweet comments, I love to hear what you have to say!
