Published in SOMERSET LIFE

Several of my Pot Pretties will be published in Somerset Life magazine www.stampington.com
The magazine will hit the stands this fall and can be purchased online at the above email address or in most Barnes & Noble bookstores.
These 3" chipboard circles are mounted on wooden dowels and represent each month of the year. They are 2 sided so the complete set has 6 units. I designed these to stick into a potted plant- great if you have a single plant on your desk at work or to gussy up a favorite plant at home. Each little circle has an image representing the highlight of the month with a tiny tag and sweet little embellishments to match. They are small reminders of the changing seasons of the year and the beauty found in each one.

No excuses- Make ATCs

Even if you aren't feeling creative, take a little time and make some ATCs. These little gems are fast and fun at 2.5" by 3.5". Use up paper scraps, try new techniques, get wild with colors. If you don't like the results, you haven't invested much time or materials. It pays to play in art to loosen up your creative spirit and this is a good way to do it. If you like your results, use them on a collage, greeting card or scrapbook page. Examples above include a pleated ribbon, faux postage and embroidered fabric scrap.
