Little Theatre

This little theatre is made with very simple things. You will need:
1. Little box
2. Decorative paper, scrapbook paper
3. Water color paper
4. Glue gun


  • Measure your box using the back of the box to trace the outline on the decorative paper.
  • Cut out the decorateve paper and line the inside of the box. (Trim if it is too large)
  • Paint curtains and vallence on watercolor paper. Cut out. 
  • Glue gun edges of box and glue curtains in place. 
  • Deorate the box with sitckers or scrabook elements.
  • Cut out a character or sticker or make your own from watercolor paper ... cut out and glue on a match stitck.
After I made this my toddler wanted to play with it. I had it for about a week until he ripped it apart.

Vintage Cut outs and die cuts

I love die cuts and have a large collection of victorian ones. I have been wanting to play and make some pretty photos with them. I keep them in an album. I will keep sharing them with you hope you enjoy.

So inspired lately...

I have been so inspired lately to draw and paint and take photos. I have not been that inspired to sew.
I am not sure why when I am sewing I don't want to paint and when I am painting I don't feel like sewing. It takes a lot of energy for both. I am always impressed with people who can accomplish so much.

A little art a little time

Lately I've been painting and drawing again. I started this a year ago and finalyy finished it. It is Acrylic on watercolor paper. My husband And I collect vintage papers, I collect the die cuts and he collects vintage postcards. We love going to the postcardshows in Pasadena. This painting is a nod to some of my vintage collections.
