Joy, Joy, Joy!

 This is the season of Peace, Joy and Love! I love everything about Christmas, always have. This was a fun and easy card to make using the Eclipse technique. I often wonder about new techniques and how they start. Seems once you see one they are showing up everywhere. You […] Read more »

Little Drummer Boy

Doesn’t this just make you think of the song! It’s one of those that keeps playing in your head after you think of it. Pa rum pa pum pum ….  Here’s an interesting tidbit. I looked the song up online and found out that it was written in 1941 and […] Read more »
