I am so super excited! All my books are now available on the Kindle. You can download them through the links shown in the sidebar on the right. Oh! and Amazon Prime members can read the books for free!
All three books are based on upcycling techniques. Turn soda cans, plastic packaging, fabric scraps, old books and magazines into works of art. Everything from cards, frames, scrapbook layouts, bags, ornaments and table decor!
The Ultimate Guide to Upcycling can also be downloaded for free if you sign up for my blog. 🙂

I have a few holidays coming up and since life at work and home has been so busy lately I have decided to plan a craft staycation for myself! This idea struck me as I was wistfully going over all the different craft retreats and cruises available to crafters these days. Unfortunately time constraints do not allow me to travel and currently no such activities are scheduled in my city. So if I cannot go to a craft retreat I have vowed that it shall come to me 🙂
Over the next 5 days I will lay out a plan for the most awesome craft staycation ever! Read on if you too are wanting some crafting and me time to get away from the hectic routine of everyday life…

I am home for the holidays and am loving the feeling! I have had a terribly hard semester and finally it’s over! I am getting a lot of time with family, friends and am able to craft as well! For supplies I am looking in the absolutely beautiful bazaars in Pakistan. In fact I have decided to put together a few kits for the mixed media artist! They are going to contain…
I was enjoying the summer, trying to be creative and making the most of time away from school, but what do you think happened today? I was struck by the common cold and am feeling miserable now with a sore throat and fever…Oh well! such is life. Even now I refuse to sit idle, i.e. not make something =), and so have been trying my hand at some beaded earrings that I will share with all of you once they are done. I need to make a trip to Jo-Ann’s to get some finishing touches for those…Hmmmm maybe tomorrow if this stupid cold permits…
For now I wanted to share some thoughts…
I have some ATCs for trade and because for some reason my flickr account won’t let me login I am posting pictures of available ATCs for trade here. Let me know if something catches your eye!
Now on to other things…
