Altered Planter, check it out!

Hello!  How are you all doing?  Hopefully great!  I have been busy as a bee with sorting for our garage sale, and packing for our move.  It has been a crazy crazy CRAZY summer for us here!  Woooo.  I did manage to squeeze in some time to play with Twinks, and create a tutorial on an altered art piece.  You can find it on the Luminarte Blog.  Please stop in and leave me a suggestion on the Luminarte Blog on what you think I should do with my new planter.  I am thinking of several different things, but I want to see if you have any brainstorms on uses that I did not think of.  Alrighty then?  Alrighty. 

(Here is a sneek peek of the planter in process.)

Well, I need to get my rear in gear and sort and pack again.  {big dramatic sigh} 

Don't forget, the Zutter Zisters have a fabulous Zummer Celebration starting August 8 on the Bind-It-All Blog!  My project will be featured on the 8th.  :)

Take care, and I hope you all have a joyful and creative week ~ Pam

Well, I am going to try to beat the heat and get out into the garden this morning.  It has been soooooooooo incredibly hot and humid we are all melting here.  Today is cooler, thank goodness, so I am off to weed for a bit and pick green beans, cucs, zucz, and basil.  Can't wait for the tomatoes to ripen!  Yummm, summer is certainly delich.  :)  Hope you have a fabulous week, stay cool, and happy creating!  ~ Pam

Happy July!

Did you have a marvelous month of June?  It flew by too quickly, I think.  I did manage to get some sewing done though.I wanted to share a few pics of what I created ~

First, new curtains and valances for the camper (soooo dang cute irl)~

Next, cute little dresses and hairthings for the grandbabies ~

Hollyn was more cooperative about letting me take her pic than Kaya was ~

Hollyn liked the bright colors, can you tell? 

Lots of new headbands (Kaya likes the new headbands, they stay in her hair soooooooo nicely) ~

Also, June was a busssssssssy month at work, and with getting things sorted for a garage sale too.  I have two projects I just finished for the Luminarte blog, I will share more about them later this month.  Additionally, I did want to let you know that the Zutter Zisters are having two summer blog hops, one in July, and one in August.  I will be in the August hop, so stay tuned for deets.  In the meantime though, here is a little info on the July Hop that starts Monday July 11 ~
It's Zummer Time! Join the Zutter Zisters Design Team for some summer themed project ideas, shopping specials and a dose of hot weather inspiration.  The fun starts on the Bind-it-All blog on Monday, July 11, and runs daily through Friday, July 15.  There will be daily drawings for Zutter giveaways, and tips for staying cool.  It's Zummer Time, and the crafting is EASY

Please come hop with the Zutter Zisters, there will be prizes and fun every day! 

Well, I am off to paint a bit and work on a few fabric projects.  Hope you have a fabulously joyful and creative week ~ Pam

How did I come up with Pam's Eclectic Stuff?

Pam- that is me. :)

eclectic --adj.- selecting what seems best of various styles or ideas
*Since I like a huge variety of arts and mediums, this seemed perfect, we will talk about the best of various styles or ideas.

stuff- The noun stuff has 7 senses -
1. material, stuff -- (the tangible substance that goes into the makeup of a physical object; "wheat is the stuff they use to make bread")2. whatchamacallit, stuff, whatsis, sundry, sundries -- (miscellaneous unspecified artifacts; "the trunk was full of stuff")3. stuff, clobber -- (informal terms for personal possessions; "did you take all your clobber?")4. stuff, stuff and nonsense, hooey, poppycock -- (senseless talk; "don't give me that stuff")5. stuff -- (unspecified qualities required to do or be something; "the stuff of heros"; "you don't have the stuff to be a United States Marine")6. stuff -- (information in some unspecified form; "it was stuff I had heard before"; "there's good stuff in that book")7. stuff -- (a critically important or characteristic component; "suspense is the very stuff of narrative")

*What more needs to be said? I really thought about using Pam's Eclectic Sundries, but I thought that might be tough to remember. :) Stuff is easy and conveys a variety of meanings. I like the definition- miscellaneous unspecified artifacts. I also liked whatchamacallit, but that is a lot of typing. :)

So there you have it!
