Many themes to choose from including, ballet, tropical, teacher, golf, camouflage, princess, animal print, groovy, flowers,and many more.

Ribbon Tip
An easy way to stop ribbon from fraying is to take a match or lighter and lightly burn the end of the freshly cut ribbon. This will melt the ribbon just enough to stop the fraying. It works very well with grosgrain ribbon and satin ribbon as well.

Woodworking Tip
My rotary tool has shown to be one of the most versatile tools I have purchased. It is great to get in tight places and for fine detail work. With the right bits you can work with wood, metal, plastics, ceramics and many other materials. It is important, however, that no matter what brand you choose to purchase it is important that it is compatible with the Dremel line of products.
 
Tammnoony - The Art Of Painting On Wood

We make art on wood with unique designs. Most of our items are made of light wood and all items are painted and drawn by hand with lovely color combinations. No two items alike; each one has its own unique and different design.

Green Tip
If you paint use water based paint (aka acrylic paint). It's better for our environment!

Be organized, not messy. It makes crafting easier!

Our shop offers custom designed frames using unique bling magnets, personalized clipboards and jewelry and trinket boxes. We use scrapbook paper, tulle, jewels, ribbon and design many of our own papers. These gifts are perfect for school teachers, young girls and any woman that you know that you want to give a unique gift to. We can also custom design any one of our items to match colors or personalities. We offer the most fabulous paper covered projects on the web.

Mod Podge Tip
Using Mod Podge (which we do in all our items) can be very tricky. Many times the paper is wrinkled and gets bubbles. Here's a trick to using this product. Put the Mod Podge thickly on both the paper and the item it is going on. Start putting the paper down at the top and slowly lowering and pressing it at the same time. Use a rolling pin (or any a brayer if you have one) to roll over the paper to push out any air bubbles.

SandAndArt in Glass Bottles

sandandart.com is a website which offers amazing sand art bottles from Petra Jordan featuring camels, mountains and other desert inspired designs. Petra is an ancient city in Jordan and is where these artists obtain the beautifully colored sand they use in their sand art.

Sand Art Tip
When making sand art, arrange the granules of sand slowly. The most important thing is to compact the sand and not allow air between the granules which can spoil the shape by any slight shaking of the bottle.

Woodworking Tip
When cutting intricate fretwork pieces on your scroll saw there is always a fuzz left on the back of the piece. I find using jeweler type files works best to remove those "fuzzies".
