A Unique Bustle of layers


With a single row of 5 bustles.


With a double row of 3 bustles or 6 bustle points. The end result looks so much better.



Un-Bustled


A variation of the french bustle was used to created the finished bustle. Nylon rings with color coded ribbons were used to create the finished bustle.

Tub Time Crayons

As a coordinator to help with crafts at our local Mom's group one year we decide the ladies would make children friendly recipe scrapbooks.  Each meeting the Mom's came together and created 2-3  4"x6" pages that would be placed in a small photo-album.  Once the year was over I continued to add more pages and create books for gifts.

Pella Dolphin 2010 Regional State Tee Design





Our local Swim Team creates a tee-shirt to wear to the State YMCA and Midwest Regional swim meet each year. This year I had the honor of designing and coordinating the project. Using contrasting colors can help create a more interesting and easy to see design. This years t-shirts were printed on grey or purple 100%Cotton Gildan ultra tee's by a local screen printer.

When working with lots of names on a tee-shirt is is always good to have the individuals initial the spelling of their name on the actual arwork before giving final approval for screening.
