kate's book list

kate's book list is complete! last week i purchased a crop-a-dile so i could bind this cute little book together. it's a gift for my youngest sister, kaitlyn. she is just like me and loves to read her little heart out. i actually just read "dear john" this weekend (by nicholas sparks) and i cried. it is good...not what i expected in the ending. but good. i think it will make a good movie...except for the ending. hehe. but nonetheless...a good book.

so anyhow! i made this little book's covers out of some recycled cardboard i had & covered with patterened paper. i created the inside pages in adobe illustrator, printed and cut them out. then i just decorated with stickers and thickers, some pearl embellies and a butterfly punched out of a strip of paper. pretty simple, but i think it's really cute! i want to make one for myself.

Pink Wuzzie

happy friday! this week has been dragging by for me...so tgif!

yesterday i made this cute little wuzzie (as i call them). in honor of valentines, she's pink! i patterned my wuzzies off of a drawing i did for a painting, that never got painted. so i turned them into little cute felties!
i am also finishing up a cute little mini book for my little sister, kaitlyn. both she and i share a love of reading, so over christmas we talked about keeping lists of all the books we've been reading. she started on harry potter, at age 9! i just read those about 3 years ago and loved them, so i can imagine how fun they must be for a younger person. but anyhow! i made a little journal for her to keep track and when it's all the way done, i'll share it with you.

Quick Card


it's been a busy day so far. i was lazy yesterday so i've got a lot on my agenda today. i have already painted the last coat on the middle room, cooked breakfast, done dishes, cleaned the fridge, done 2 loads of laundry and taken out the compost.

still more to do, but i wanted to share a quick card. this one has a sweet little deer stamp on it that i made for the "female art collective", which is a group of female artists from louisville (but now they are adding more from around the country). they have a website where lots of great handmade stuff gets sold. femaleartcollective.com

color challenge no.21

well it's been quite some time, huh!? hope everyone had a very special holiday season and is getting back into the swing of things. i know i am.

i stayed up way too late last night to make a card for dawn's challenge this week. it's been on my to-do list for several days but time is getting away from me. other things keep popping up lately and i haven't had time to do a whole lot of scrapping.

can i just say how much i love dawn's challenges? she seems like the sweetest gal. her colors this week are chocolate, light yellow, cream and light teal. hope you like my card! (ps we had to buy a new computer over the holidays - ug i know right...both my desktop and michael's laptop went kaput at the same time - so! this is the first time i've used this version of Paint so i hope my picture cropping isnt' too crazy! haha!)
