Happy Weekend Everyone! Remember those cool Niche Shrine Kits from last week? Well I decided to elaborate on them, and made so cool new Frames to fit the fronts! The sizes coordinate with the Shrine Kits of course, but the frames can also be used for just about any other project! There are also several other new and newly back in stock goodies, including some authentic Frozen Charlotte dolls!
Design Team Member Cat Kerr has an amazing tutorial for you today, sure to help you think outside the box! Cat will definitely get your wheels turning with this fantastic piece. (all puns intended!) She did an amazing job showing the step outs to achieve her wonderful ombré look. You don't want to miss this post! Hop on over and let Cat know you stopped by: http://inthelightofthemoon.blogspot.com/2016/07/today.html
Happy Weekend Everyone! I had tons of fun designing our brand new Niche Shrines! These cool shrines have a niche built right inside! It's like a shrine inside a shrine! The perfect place to store a small treasure! This shrine would look great with some of the new Stencil Board Picado adorning the front and perhaps a small DOTD embellishment (On Sale!) tucked inside the niche. But this versatile shrine can be used for any theme. Makes an excellent Theatre too! And you could even turn it horizontally for an interesting look. And they come in three cool sizes! I can't wait to see what you create with them!
Happy Weekend Everyone! We have lots of new goodies in the shop, but of course our favorite thing is the new Stencil Board Picado Cut Outs. They come in 5 sizes including a super tiny MICRO size, measuring just 1/4" x 3/8". SO CUTE! Wouldn't they be wonderful on our Mini DOTD Shrine Kits? The cool shrines above were created by the talented Sherry Matthews for our 2013 swap. You can find the whole album on Facebook for even more inspiration here.
Happy Holiday Weekend Everyone! In addition to the fabulous New Goodies in the shop, we are having a STOREWIDE SALE! Use discount code: HappyJuly at check-out for an additional 10% off your entire order, including sale items!

Grab up some Relics & Artifacts today, and make some stunning art! (photos by Sandra Evertson, used with permission)
Yesterday on my daily walk, I found the sweetest little abandoned nest on the ground. I took a photo, but didn't decide to take it with me. Later I wished I had, thinking of all the creative things I could do with it. I made a plan to possibly grab it the next day if it was still there.
Then today, the fabulous new Relics & Artifacts arrived and I just KNEW I had to go grab the nest since it would be beyond perfect for the new Finch. Luckily, it was right where I left it. Nature's gift.
