What's New on the Blog...

Heading to CHA in Los Angeles

Here is a peek at my new business poster. I am picking it up from the printers this afternoon and starting the packing process. It is going to be a busy time in LA. I am not only showing in the License and Design section of the show ( Booth 4840) if you are in […]

Triple Play Blog Hop – The final project – this time anyway!

Christmas is around the corner and I am running to get there. I apoligise for missing the last two hops but my excuse is bound to bring oohs and awhs from most of you as well as perhaps as Oh you poor baby!. I was on a cruise with my hubby and frankly blog hopping […]

Foam Frame

Thanks Eileen for creating this fun frame. I however did not know what you had intended it to look like so I made art. Double stick foam dots were used to add the painted pieces to become my art piece. Really simple and kinda cute.  

The Perfect Hairband for Fall

Fall is here and with the windy days and all that leaf raking I like to wear a hairband so that my hair stays somewhat out of my face. I used a dollar store hairband (7 for $1 actually) and tore off the horrible fabric if was covered with and then wrapped it with fabric […]

Punch some holes – lace them up and add some metallic accents with a silver rub-on product. Slip in the cupcake of your choice and […]

Trying to design around computer issues

It seems once again I have been sidelined by my ineffective use of my computer. It does not come natural to me. At every turn I feel frustrated as I could have done it by hand faster than by computer. I am sure I seem like a dinosaur to many of you

Visiting with like-minded business women

Recently I had the opportunity to drive up to Maryland with Eileen Hull to visit with Tiffany Windsor, Heidi Borchers and Candice Liccone. It was a true pleasure and really an inspiring afternoon as each of these ladies talked about their businesses, the past and what the future might bring….. We might have different paths […]

Lorine is the consummate designing professional. Her talent for creative ideas is matched by her follow-through and attention to details. I admire her skills and am amazed to watch her constantly expand her design techniques. She listens carefully to the needs of her clients and delivers the goods. Lorine is also in close touch with consumers and designs to their needs and wants. Lorine is your “go to” person if you want a job done right.
