Coloring for Adults, Red Hat Theme

(New Picture added on Oct 21st)
Welcome! (or welcome back) to my blog.  
It's been a while since my last post because life  took me away from random acts of creativity. However, I'm suddenly inspired to ride the wave of adult coloring. 
I'm a proud Queen of a Chapter in the Red Hat Society.  This led me to an on-line Facebook meeting of another Queen (Joann Miller) who has officially organized an International Color it Red and Purple Day. Link to International Color it Red and Purple Day Facebook Page Here 
For 2015 International Color It red and Purple day is Monday October 26th.  
Below you will find three- free to print - Red Hat themed pages that I created for the event. 
I would LOVE to see any of them after they have been colored and would happily post them on my blog. 
I'm thinking of drawing a few more, what do you think?

Please click on the links below which will take you to a nice clean copy, ideal for an 8 1/2 by 11 size paper print out.

Fabulous Blooming Orchids

Haven't posted in a while, actually MONTHS. Work was so very busy this last winter, and then Spring in the new house! I was planting and weeding and growing daily. 
I found I have a green thumb when it comes to house plants, especially my orchids can you believe the blooms on this beauty! 28 buds at last count. I got a tip from a friend to plant it in a clear bowl because the roots love light...yes they do! 
I also think it liked having a friend. This pansy orchid was given to me as a gift in the fall, no matter which way I turned these plants in the window, they kept reaching out to each other. 

For those who want my growing tips, this is a small bay window that faces North. I live in a suburb on the border of Illinois and Wisconsin. I water very, very little once a week, and I check that the "feet" aren't standing in water. They don't like standing in water. Ill be splitting the Pansy Orchid in two after it finishes blooming, and will update how that goes. I learned a lot about Orchids on Youtube, great resource for new gardeners.
Off to a garden party...TTFN

Up-cycled 3 Ring Binder to a Scrapbook

Welcome! If you are hopping along with us today you should have come from Simplyprice.blogspot.com.
If you aren't already a follower of my blog, I would love to have you follow me.
The hop order is;
My Craft Channel mycraftchannelblog.blogspot.com
Tifany DeGough with special guest Midge Hammon Inkblotsbytrd.blogspot.com
Abigail Stoops scrapbookista.com
Michelle Price with special Guest Justina Nadolson simplyprice.blogspot.com

This is a project not only inspired by, but using many products purchased on My Craft Channel. I really can't narrow it down to one episode because I have learned so many tips and techniques watching all sorts of episodes.
We were getting rid of some 3 ring binders at work (they had been well used and were falling apart). I decided to try salvaging the back piece that houses the actual 3 ring mechanism. When my October "Kit of the Month" arrived from My Craft Channel, I knew this was the perfect project for an all day crop.

Here are the results. 
The October "Kit of the Month" was all about the home. We just moved in, and I had put a lot of thought into making our home feel warm and inviting. I want to document what really makes a house feel like a home. 
The front of this album is a chipboard house shape sprayed with Color Shine spray (by Heidi Swapp) glued to a square piece of chipboard that was also sprayed. 
I cut 2 square holes in the house piece so I could make little windows with pictures in them. The windows are covered with clear acetate for the glass effect.
The old silver binder rings are visible on this type of up-cycle so I tied assorted ribbons to each ring to give them a little personality and color. 
The back of the original binder is covered with wood printed paper, and the edges are sealed with gaffers tape so that none of the original binder shows. I left the pocket on the inside back for momentos. 
Here are a couple of the inside pages dedicated to our Home. 
Honestly, I cried when I got this kit in the mail because the sentiments and sayings on each piece really touched me. The paper is double sided and beautiful, the ribbon and buttons included are adorable. they really do a great job of putting a delightful bundle together. (No, they don't pay me to say this, I mean it! ) 
Thanks for stopping (or hopping) by.
Happy scrapping!
