By the time this month is over...

..I will have cranked out 20 projects. Oh. My. Goodness! Not trying to be braggadocios, just saying' in case you have wondered where on earth I have been. It's all a very good thing. A few I can share, including this one. I recently finished this layout using some of Studio Calico's newest goodies from the Countryside line--

This paper begged for this layout. That little guy in the country bath should still be that little :( Do you spy those wood buttons? Yea..I need a jar FULL. My newest favorite technique (is that a technique? Or maybe just a look?) is adding bits to string. Here I use the SM10 from May Arts.  I thought it added the perfect little "country" look.
Speaking of May Arts, today you will find me over on the May Arts blog! We teamed up with Little Yellow Bicycle and I created a fun birthday banner package.

You can see the tutorial HERE.
And on the October Afternoon blog today...SprINKlers!!

I have my first ever video tutorial up! I give an intro to the new Art Box SprINKlers, as well as a little tutorial on making ink circles.
You can see all that HERE. And you really should watch it as I make fun of myself saying "great" WAAAAY too many times ;) Those video tutorials are not an easy thing to do! I bow to all of you able to make it look so effortless!!!

Whoosh! That's a lot of info! Found out today that after 3 cases of strep in less than 2 months Paxton is finally over it. So for now it looks like those tonsils are sticking around.
I hope you all are dry and the sun is shining in your neck of the woods. It has been raining so much here there is flooding all around. My next project might have to be making a boat ;)
Happy Tuesday to you!!


  1. Great projects Lex!! Love how the video tut turned out-and the rocket card? Oh...my..
    Maybe we can get our hubbies to take out the boats and meet mid-flood stage for Starbucks? LOL ;)

  2. funny u mention the 20 projects, i was just thinking i have been seeing you everywhere lately!!! good job friend! and thats not a country bath, its a red neck bath! just kidding!!

  3. LOVE that "Country Bath" layout, the papers and the picture certainly matched perfectly :) Love your style, keep up the good work! And WOW, you really produce tons of projects and they're all equally awesome!
