video tutorial on Halloween gift boxes

Hi Again!  Glitterfest is just around the corner and I'm a busy little witch crafting away in my studio.  I thought I'd turn on the video and share how I make my little matchbox gifties.  Enjoy!

A little creepy...

I love Halloween!  I've always loved it and I still dress up every year and decorate my whole house and the outside yard.  I start looking for Halloween stuff in July, do you do that too?  If you love Halloween then you'll want to check out my new youtube video on these altered file folders with mini journals.   They're almost sold out but not to worry I will have some at Glitterfest which is happening October 14th at a beautiful historic building in downtown Fullerton,CA.   Thanks for popping in.

recycled altered art & more online classes

Hello creative ones, I wanted to give you a couple updates.  First, I am happy to announce that I will be a part of an amazing event thrown by Kim Caldwell next May 2019 and I invite you all to come!  Registration just opened today and from what I've heard it's already half way filled so make haste!  Be pampered and bask in creativity at Kim's "Dreamy Bohemian Affaire" located in Manhattan Beach,Ca., May 2-5th 2019.  Here is a direct link  for all the details, workshops and offerings:

Here is a sample of my workshop for Dreamy Bohemian Affaire, a dream catcher:

Next, I have been invited by Tim and and his team to create projects using the Tim Holtz Assemblage line of jewelry components and I made a short DIY video that I just uploaded today of  a fun piece that I think will inspire you.  Check it out and subscribe to my channel for more creative inspiration.

And lastly, after listening to your repeated requests to have more online workshops,  I have decided to make online classes a priority and hope to have the first of many classes launch the Fall of 2018.  I have so much to share and a vast library to choose from so stay tuned.   If you haven't subscribed to my newsletter (link up on the right side of this blog) then do so now so you can become a part of my VIP student list and receive discounts, freebies and offers only available to to my list.
In the mean time, here is a some eye candy of offerings for future classes.  If you have a favorite please email me ( or leave a comment below.  Thank you for all your support over the years!

Video tutorials and flip throughs

I've been making a few videos the past couple months and just finished a tutorial on altered file folders here:

Also registration is open for the FRENCH BOHO TRAVELERS JUNK JOURNAL workshop in Hemet,CA.  July 28th.  see info in the last post or email me for details


Sunday, March 4, 2018


For several months I've been tinkering away at a new class project and I'm so excited to show it to you!  It's a series of bohemian travelers journals and  I'll be teaching it in Northern California April 6th,  and in Hemet Ca July 28th.  If you're interested in attending let me know and I'll send an invoice.  Class fee is $125.  This is a class packed with techniques, so I decided to have it all day and into the evening from 9:30a-7:30pm!  You will love it!

Here is the description and lots of pictures.  There is also a video, scroll to the end to watch.

 I'd like to think there is a story behind everything we collect, display or stash away, and what better way to use our collections than an artisan journal with a bohemain twist. In this class Robin will open her treasure chest of 20 plus years in paper crafting and show you as many techniques and tips as she can to create your unique story in this eclectic journal. The beauty of this class is that it is open to all types of adventurous creatives from the beginning paper crafter to scrapbookers, junk journal junkies, mixed media artists, quilters, jewelers, painters...we all have a story to tell. I invite you to bring your personal stash  to create your own in this Bohemian junk journal. If journaling is not your thing, then use them as an arsenal for your personal collections or look book. We will be sewing paper, cardstock and fabric for a large part of class, but we will also cover alternatives to sewing. These journals are 8.5" tall and 4.25" wide. They can be used as an insert or on their own.

This class will be LOADED with techniques, it's all day and night and only $125!  Won't you join us?
