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.)

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

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! 🙂
