About Me

I'm married to a sweet and wonderful guy. Finally finished college but can't seem to find a job in a lab, I'm a Microbiology major. Hope to get a good job and be able to start a family. I love to craft, especially with paper products. I've recently started an etsy store, dreamer633.etsy.com. I like to try new products and techniques.

US Virgin Island ATC

Well, it didn't take me long to come up with my USVI ATC, thank goodness! The wording is printed on green vellum, took forever for it to dry. I really liked the pic I found but thought something more was needed yet I really didn't want to detract from the pic. I went to Walmart (only place near me open with scrapbooking supplies :)) and looked all over and finally came to the bead area. I found these pretty green and brown beads that I decided were perfect! The clear green makes me think of sea glass and the brown beads have faint lines which suggest shells to me. So, here it is! In case you're wondering how the beads are attached I used the Bazzill N Stitchez method, pierced the paper, ran the floss through and then threaded the bead onto the floss, definitely something I'm gonna have to do more of!
