Something new I have been trying

So if you read my blog you know that I made a version of the clip it up for a friend...and now I have two more that I am painting and working on.

I have also been making these little dessert trays:

I am really enjoying the hunt of finding little plates and candle sticks or candy dishes to make these... I have 3 more made besides these.  I will post those after I get pictures... these three are a perfect size for yummie chocolates or a couple of cupcakes or brownies...(which is what I had in the platter with the dome until yesterday).  Two of the others that I made are smaller and are perfect for See's candies...and one is bigger, big enough for a cake...that one I painted the steam pink... can't wait to show you all.  I am hoping to start selling these... my first attempt will be at the Red Rooster Barn Scrapbook Retreat at the end of the month.
Scrapbook Clearance Outlet is hosting a store at these can check out the information on Dora's blog

Thanks for stopping by....

2012 Word of the year

I have seen lots of bloggers out there who do a word of the year....

And this year I am going to play along!
My word for 2012 is


And boy do I need it! 
So not only is this a word, but a resolution as well.
First thing first....
I am working on my little scrapbook corner....
It has been such a unorganized mess for too long now!
My goal with this is to organize things to where I can find them
and get the work done I need to do... I have so much to catch up on.
After that I am going to tackle one home improvement item
each month starting in February. Wish me luck... I am handy, but never have
done home improvements before!  (I might just need to find me a handy man at times)
What are you goals, resolutions, word of the year???
Let me know... there might just be a RAK involved!
