Canon Camera Fun

I must say, I have always admired the black and white photos with ONE color element highlighted, but hated messing with Photoshop to achieve it. I still love Photoshop and all it can do... BUT WOW this is so easy! My Canon camera does ALL this in a breeze, with the push of a button. It has inspired me to snap a few pics of the store... just a bit of inspiration! I love this ring... all velvet ribbon, pink and over sized. Perfect.
Upcoming events in the store??? There are too many to share them ALL right now, but we have jammed this summer with all kinds of things to keep you busy. Sign up now for our Garage Sale event June 6-8, and don't forget to mark your calendars for our "Schools Out Crop".

This wonderful glitter by Melissa Frances just in. I took the opportunity to sample it last night, it is BEAUTIFUL. The vile comes complete with a flip top lid and tiny hole for the right amount of dispensing!
I love this vintage bin at the store.. it ALMOST lost its way and ended up at my house... weird. It is stuffed full of fun goodies to pick through for your enjoyment. I snapped the photo with the new camera and pulled all the reds out. Fun huh?

Super cute "texting" layout at by Lead Designer Allison. This is to die for and so appropriate these days! Stop by or call (937)318-5683 to sign up!

Birds are so in right now, I LOVE LOVE LOVE this little book by our designer Carol. Check out other classes by Carol here at the store!

After creating this fun ribbon display at the store, I just may have to make one in my studio. My ribbon is overflowing and busting at the seams. Cute story though... my new pup Chance recently tried to relieve me of some of my ribbon collection. I came home to discover the dogs had accidentally been given free reign of the house all day... instead of eating the bag of chips that were left on the coffee table or raiding the trash, they spent all day in my studio. I arrived at home to find lots of my things out in the yard, including many spools of my beautiful ribbon. Bad dogs!
Now available at $7 kits for purchase. They are the perfect solution to the busy summer days! While supplies last.

More Canon camera fun... quick picture of one of my "Polka Dot Owl" handmade card displays. Check me out at or on for all things handmade! My shop is the Polka Dot Owl and I am selling all kinds of fun things!

Another sneak peek at a bird project by Carol. We have been having lots of fun mixing fabric and scrapbooking together. Beware... one you start there is no going back. I am hooked!
