Pom Pom Monsters High (with Klutz: Pom Pom Monster Salon)

I went to see Monster University last weekend and, guys, it was amazing! I had pretty high expectations for this one and wondered how a prequel would do without cute little Boo... But it definitely lived up to my love of the first and, after that, I just couldn't get those monsters off my mind.

So, I grabbed a copy of Pom Pom Monster Salon and put my inspiration to work. I took things even further back and whipped up some cute pom pom monsters to populate my Monsters High School!

School’s out guys, congrats!

What will you get up to this summer?

Beachy Keen (with Window Art)

One thing this crafty gal has always dreamed of — besides my very own crafting room, of course — is that one day I will get to live near a beach. As a born and bred city gal, sometimes this dream seems destined to stay just that... But with a little inspiration from my favourite friend, I’ve found a way to bring the sun and sand to my skyscraper-filled view.

With a  couple of rounds of Window Art under my belt, this time I decided to take those pretty little paints off-book and make some dreamy summer scenes that take me to my happy place.

So, I searched out some beachy clip art online and printed them out in full page format (don’t worry if it gets a little grainy, as long as you can see enough of the picture to trace, you should be good to go). Then I popped them in the plastic sleeve and got to painting. And all those bright and shiny colours that I raved were perfect for fall and Christmas, turned out to be pretty great for summer too!

So now, this city-bound gal just has to look out her window to see soft sand beaches and bright turquoise water! Turns out, with a little help from Klutz, dreams can come true!
