Friday Night Craft Night

Exciting Friday night here in Orting.  I have been experimenting with some new paint techniques for my coasters. 

These are the ceramic tiles.  Still a work in progress but I am liking the effects so far.

Venetian stone tiles.

What do you think?

Have a great weekend!

Hello Friends!

What a beautiful weekend we have had.  I wish I did not have to go into work today.  It would be nice to go out and enjoy it again today.  Keeping my fingers crossed that tomorrow is another day of sunshine and blue skies! 

Running the Orting trail yesterday was refreshing and energizing...

I hope you have a wonderful weekend full of sunshine and laughter.

Be Inspired!

Contest Time

Hello everyone!

It is contest time! I have been busy working on my coasters and would like to share a set with you and it could not be any easier.  There are several ways to enter.  The first would be to leave me a comment here.  Second way to enter would be to "like" my facebook page and leave a comment.  I really enjoy making these coasters and I hope you will enjoy them also.  I have many coasters to select from you can see a few of them on facebook and Etsy.

Have a wonderful week,

Day 1 - Here we go

We must let go of the life we have planned, so as to accept the one that is waiting for us.  Joseph Campbell
Never in a million years would I have believed that I would be where I am today.  This is definitely not the life I had planned, but you know what?  I don't mind.  This is exactly where I want to be.  I would like to invite you to join me on this road to self discovery and we can learn new things together.

Who said you can't teach a old dog new tricks?  My goal with this blog is to learn all kinds of new tricks.  Whether it is a new craft, recipe for my crock pot or even reading the next great novel.

I am have already learned so many new things this year.  A few of my accomplishments are opening an Etsy shop you can also visit my pinterest page and last but not least I started my Facebook page  I still need to work on my photography.  I am not a very accomplished photographer, any suggestions?  As soon as I have finished snapping all my photos of my coasters I will offer a give-a-way to my fellow bloggers and Facebook friends.  Hopefully this will come in the beginning of next week.

So let's get this party started,
