I'm Late!

"Technique bonanza" was used in making this ATC. I used chocolate color metal and a clock mold both from Ten Seconds Studio and ran them through my BIG SHOT machine. Then I placed the metal only through my BIG SHOT to completely flatten it. I then covered card stock cut to the ATC size with the metal. A "wheel" was used for texturing the edges of the card.

The white rabbit rubber stamp is from Artistic Outpost. I stamped the rabbit image repeatedly onto different color card stock to make his clothes. His scarf was made from purple crepe paper.

The umbrella and buttons on the vest were made using Adirondack Dimensional Pearls. The image was cut out and glued onto the metal. Copic markers were used to add just a pinch of color to the white rabbit.

Diet? What Diet!

The desserts at Maggianos Little Italy were exceptional! We all gained five pounds....but what an awesome excuse!

Anthropologie Eye Candy

This is one of the many reasons to enjoy St. Louis. I heard through the grapevine that a store is coming soon to Tulsa!

Jefferson National Expansion Memorial

Did you know that it is the Arch in St. Louis? We wanted to buy tickets to take a ride to the top. I've been to the top before to see the awesome view and thought that would be really a cool experience for my girlfriend. But it was closed that day! However....we'll try again!

The base is larger than one realizes!

This is the view when you rest your body against the arch looking straight up!

Symbol of Freedom

I absolutely love our flag and our country. I enjoyed the July 4th holiday in Arkansas with my sister Annie. We spent our time sitting on the front porch working on our projects that we brought with us, took time to antique, and ate lots of great food from the grill!

The Art of Entertaining

OMG....if you are in the St. Louis area...I highly recommend stopping here for their FAMOUS cake glitter balls! YUMMY SUPREME! And doesn't their shop look adorable?!! And their service is soooooo friendly too!

You can see the cake glitter balls in the showcase. The yellow ones are made with the white cake flour and the pink ones are chocolate!

You can not eat just one!!!!

They also serve lunch and do catering!

This is a paper flower outside on the building.

This will be on a radar for each STL visit!
