Ahhh…felt so good to have my hands in paint for a few days…now back to ink work.

If you’d like your own custom pet portrait, now would be a good time to book before the holiday madness ensues.  (Seriously, where has this year gone?!)

The folks over at the new Craft Corners Blog asked me come up with some crafty goodness for a guest blog post.   I had a lot of requests for an Ink Transfer tutorial after I made my Wedding Tree Tags, so I thought I’d roll with that idea.  Skip on over to  Craft Corners for my step-by-step tutorial on how to make No Sew Monogrammed Cloth Napkins.  Seriously, one of the easiest and most versatile techniques you’ll ever come across!
