My first "official" crafty YouTube video!

I did it! I conquered my fear of going on camera to record this video showcasing the writing desk box I altered for the Secret Valentine's Day Altered Box Swap over on Life on the Scrap Beach. I love how this box came out. It was my first altered box project.

I used the Mariposa paper line by DCWV as my partner wanted her box red, white and black and I immediately thought of this paper. I just love butterflies and I hope she does too. The roses are all from I Am Roses and I colored them with Lindy's Stamp Gang Starburst Sprays, then I used some prima bling and flatback pearls and lace trim. 
 I am shipping this out tomorrow so I can't wait till my partner gets it. Yay!

Valentine's Day-ish Mail art

I'm not sure what's come over me but I've been making lovey Valentine's day mail art recently. With some old fashioned collage images, embossing the envelopes, and using glimmery sprays to make it all sparkle. I'm loving it.  :)

Jan 2012 Mail Art

I'm working on a few other projects that I will post once they are done. One is a writing box for an Valentine's Day altered box swap that is almost finished now, and the other is a Travelogue for Your Paper Pantry which is a mini album that will be going to 9 partners to share and travel and be decorated. I'm excited for this. Just need to finish my pages and off it wil go. I wil post photos when these goodies are done...and I really need to get brave and do my first you tube video! I'm shy and a little scared, but I will....eventually I will.  :)
