Experiment with wool felt

Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas. I've been back to my crafty self. LOL I went to the Upcycle Exchange in St Louis last week. I found some cool old books, a scrabble board, embroidery floss, and glycerin soap.

I took wool and wrapped it around the soap and felted it on the soap. It is so cool. The wool acts as a loofa sponge. As the soap shrinks the wool gets smaller too.

I want to share with you the swap box I received from Scrappingwen. I am amazed at her talent and attention to detail. I just love the box she prepared and created for me.

New mini album

Hi everyone,
It has been a long time since I've blogged. I really miss not blogging. Last week I saw a video Marion Smith did on an album she designed. On her site Marion Smith Designs you can purchase the template. I loved the book so much I treated myself to the template. Here are some pictures of the album I did. I will post Marion Smith's album later.

Happy crafting,
