What”s New…..


I would like to tell you that blogs aren’t a big headache…but alas, I cannot.  Seems like somehow, someway, my blog has become somewhat compromised….maybe it is the “heartbleed” but whatever it is, it is causing me a great big bleeding headache.  But with that said, I will try once again to up-date you on the vast array of projects I have created with the amazingly gorgeous papers from Maja Design.  To see the projects  up-close, with step-by-step details, you’ll have to go visit the Maja Design blog (click HERE.)

Maja Design March Mood Board


Well it is hard to believe, with fresh snow on the ground …..but it really is March,  and Spring is officially right around the corner.

 Maja Design has posted their beautiful and inspirational Mood Board for March 2014.  We would love for you to come over and join in on the fun.  AND you could win some of the most gorgeous paper that there is to be had!  You haven’t seen beautiful paper until you have seen ANY one of the beautiful Maja Design paper collections in person.

Here is what I created, using Maja Design’s Vintage Autumn Basics paper collection & the March Mood Board for my inspiration.  I created a 12 x 12 mixed media canvas piece, and a little cork sail-boat.  On the back of the jar (of the little cork sailboat project) I posted the 2nd part of a Swedish folk song that is included in the Mood Board.  I just loved the sweetly sad feel to the song and it just seemed to fit the mood of the little boat.  To read the words…you need to visit the Maja Design blog, because it was just impossible to capture the words in a photo.

I hope to see you over at the Maja Design blog.  And I wish you one super creative day!  -Nancy


An Up-Cycled Pen Organizer using Maja Design papers


Here is an up-cycled pen organizer I created using the gorgeous Vintage Spring Basics paper collection from Maja Design (specifically the papers: 6th of May front and back; 3rd of March front and back; 5th of May; 7th of May back).

Art Desk Organizer

I created this out of a Sonic drink carrier…you know the one they give you when you order a ton of drinks during their happy hour 🙂 well, this was perfect to use for an organizer….shove some of the cardboard inner rolls from your toilet paper down into it for further organizing your colors and voila…it practically organizes itself.  For the full details on I covered this and embellished it…please visit the Maja Design blog HERE.   I also show you how this makes a great silverware holder for parties or picnics using some fancied up mason jars on the Maja Design blog site as well….so get over there already! 🙂

Thanks for looking my friends! Hope you are having one heck of a creative day! And no matter what, “All is Well!” – Nancy

Nothing but blue skies – Maja Design’s Sommartider paper collection


My latest project was created on a 12 x 16 canvas panel, using the gorgeous Sommartider paper collection from Maja Design.

Nothing but blue skies B


This piece was a lot of fun to create.

My inspiration for this came from what I believe to be was  “Barbie” packaging (what was left over from my daughter’s Christmas present) – it had a great horizon scene which inspired me, and one of my daughter’s books.

I love children’s book illustrations and often think that one day I may actually write and illustrate a children’s book.  Who knows?

An EARLY Happy New Year with Maja Design


Well, I cannot believe it is really true…but as it is already Christmas Eve in Sweden, I think it is safe to reveal that I have accepted a position on the paper manufacturer,  Maja Design’s 2014 Creative Team.  I know, right?  I could pinch myself.  Maja Design (for my USA friends) is an exquisite paper design company out of Sweden.   The paper and prints they produce are truly magnificent….in the highest quality and elegance.  The amazing collections really push me out of my comfort zone…their  beauty truly has none to compare….and I strive to use them in new and uniquely creative ways.  AND that is my new year’s goal…to create above and beyond. 🙂

AND have you seen the 2014 Creative Team line-up….WOW…I am truly humbled to be among some of the MOST talented paper crafters in the industry.  You need to see it to believe it….click HERE.

So, with that said, stay tuned…..I have a whole lot to share with everyone…..AND, with a few surprises along the way!

May God bless you all! and I truly wish you the Merriest of Christmases and Happiest of Holidays! 🙂
