Featured Friend!!! Fenbears!

Wow, Alyson Commons is an extraordinary master bear designer! Her bears are tiny works of art that are collectors dreams. Fully jointed, weighted these bears are One of a Kind or very limited editions. They are not toys, but collector bears to be treasured as family heirlooms. Wouldn't it be exquisite to feature one of these little artworks on the front of an heirloom photo album for a new little one in your house? Wow! Alyson has been featured in specialty bear magazines and has been crafting her bears for the last 18 years.
Her ebay link is
Please go check her out! Of course Aly is our own Alyluvsminialbums in the scrapping YouTube community. Let her know what you think. Each of her bears come with laminated birth certificates!

Here are the Mini's for Auction and a Video that Kimscrapper made for me!

Wow Kim made this for me after I told her I had no way to make a pretty one! Wasn't that the sweetest, kindest gesture? My heart was so touched by this. I know that probably every one of us has someone in our lives who has suffered and maybe even succumbed to this evil disfiguring disease. My great-grandmother and my dear Aunt June are the two that come to mind for me. Both of these wonderful woman went on with their lives until they passed away from other causes but so many do not. I am so very passionate about this cause! This has really touched a nerve with me and I want to make sure that my effort is worthy of these two great ladies. And Kim, how can I say thank you enough? Please ladies, if you can spread the word in any way, we only have this week for this auction, but we always have the time to stop put a few of our funds into a cause like this. Thank you for watching and helping.
Sincerely Deanna
What A Great Cause! Think Pink

New Boot Tutorial

Hi all!
Well you may have noticed the plethora of videos that I have been uploading, lol that's because my computer was not working well and messed up everything I put on it. So I had to start over on the Victorian Boot project. However, it is fixed now and I have this tutorial to go with it. If there are any problems now just let me know and I will be glad to help. Enjoy the video, I decided just to put the link because it will take to long to upload here. It is 26 minutes and that is with the still pictures at the end so this is really simple and does not take long at all. Here are some pictures. The pattern is 3.99 and will be sent in an e-mail after payment is received through paypal. The button is after the pictures. Thank you ladies.

The Huge "Mini" is Done!!!!!

Hi Friends!
I wanted to show you this gorgeous mini I created for Charity at A Lil Scrap of Heaven. We are doing Cynthialoowho's swap and she requested the 5 and dime paper. As you all know I am kind of a deep colors, vintage lover so bright and cheerful scared me to death........ However, I love it! This was the funnest project I have done so far bar none! It just kept growing and I could not leave anything out! I really do think it is very very nice.
I am entering this in the Design Team call for Alilscrapofheaven.ning so wish me luck. I hope you enjoy this. I am really thinking of making a few kits so if you would be interested let me know!

Sweet Photo Box

Hi! I created this little photo box for my first design team project for The Altered Page. It was alot of fun and actually very quick and easy. Some time ago, on a fishing trip with my husband, I was crocheting and I started creating these little oval frames with eyelet edging to insert trim into. I have made them in several sizes and just love how they turned out. Today I put some ribbon through this one and fell in love. The colors went together so well and it was just very very pretty. I mixed paint to match the ribbon, painted and modpodged the box in and out, made a little saying cut it out, blinged it up and slipped it on top of the photo here slot and Wa-La! sweet little box. Lot's of fun and so quick and easy, I would like to encourage everyone to come over to and see what we are up to. I am going to host an altered box swap over there so come and join me!
Have a happy scrappy day!

It is Official I am Addicted!

You all have to see what I created yesterday. I was in a swap at The Scrap Beach for tags and I have never really made any unless they were for a specific album with the exception of my "fashion" tag which was for the WOC design team call. I wanted very much to enter the design team call for The Altered Page so I wanted these tags to be special. Well I can say that I love them, don't want to send them, LOL, and my 6 year old (very discerning) grandson says they are "So Beautiful!"

Grandsons are great for the ego. I had problems with the pictures but I will show you a little sneak peek of one and will post the whole bash later today.

ok it's later and here they are...

Hello All,
Well as I said in the last post I have been making butterflies.....butterflies........and still more butterflies. It's been alot of fun tonight is the get together so I will be posting some more pictures of that but here are a few pictures of the preparations. Craziness! I also wanted to share a little dress I made for a small friend of mine. She brought the house down when she wore it to church on Sunday night. Our visiting evangelist called her the Polka Dot Princess and it's true she certainly was. I enjoyed seeing a little one in one of my creations again my princesses are all grown up! However I think Racquel is still a princess in her Easter dress that I made her this year don't you? Ok gotta get to crafting so much to do!
