I have created yet another monster!  Don’t forget that, once I start making something that is special to me, I just can’t stop!  These are so much fun to pump out and I can see it already…this is my next crafty phase!  :)  Man, and I just got my studio organized…

Some news…. hop on over to Pam’s blog, my dear, Aries Gypsy.  She is looking for artsy folks to do an ATC swap~~ get ready for this… the theme for this swap is anything Volkswagen bus!  How cool~ considering that a big, bright orange bus with a camper pop-top was our family vehicle until I was a teenager!  :)  They hold a special place in my heart, those awesome VW buses!  Check it out and leave Pam a comment if you’d like to participate!!  I know that I’ll be busy, count me in!!!



Melody… this one’s for you!!

My dear Deb at~- Sparkling Scrapbooks -~sent me a box filled with handmade and heartfelt MaGiC~

This is what was waiting next to my front door this afternoon.  OH MY GOSH!!!!!  Deb and I did an Alice swap and she absolutely SPOILED ME ROTTEN!  Look at all of this… WONDERLAND!!!  Thank you, thank you, thank you, you are so good to me!!!  I am still in awe and drooling over my new yummies!   I truly am at a loss for words to thank you!


The pictures do NOT do these pieces any justice at all.  Some of you may know that my camera is on it’s last leg.  Still, no screen… yet I had this bright idea….ready?  Since everything else was working fine, I thought that I’d try to still take pictures and upload, even though I couldn't SEE anything that I was taking a picture of!  *YIKES*  I ended up taking about 30 shots~ hoping that even if only a couple turned out, that’d be awesome… and IT WORKED!  I won’t ever know if the pictures are in focus or if I’m even capturing the desired image, but it’s getting me by, at least in the meantime.  I am so glad that you could take a tiny peek… I hope to get this dilemma remedied soon!

Thank you again so much for your thoughtfulness, Deb!  You are so special to me!


A wish for today.

Doodling lately…

artsy 034

These are SO old, I stumbled across them  in a forgotten sketchbook of mine and recently, started to play with  them again.  I  find old works that I was really never happy with~ set aside and forgotten… picking them up again and re-working them with a fresh mind is always inspiring for me.  (Painting over the whole thing and starting over usually happens to most of them! )  I find a lot of these rejects floating around in my studio…:)
