About Me

My photo

I am a mother, a wife, a sister, a best friend a daughter, and artist.

If there was a way I could spend as much time in my studio creating as I do working my regular 40 hour job I would do it in a heartbeat. I am loving discovering myself through art and I can't wait to see where the journey takes me.


Believe in your dreams

I told my daughter the other day...Don't follow your dreams....CHASE THEM!!!!
I wanted to make this page for her so she never stops believing, and dreaming, and that she always knows how proud I am of her...
Dream big little girl!!!! I know you are capable of achieving anything!!!
I love you so much


Art Journal

A little something else I decided to try. I have seen so many awesome journals online and I had this little book that I got at goodwill. I went through and glued 2 pages together through the whole book and I am going to do an art journal. Going to try to do something at least 5 days a week so I will try to post. Here is the cover. I pained it brown and then used crackle medium and put the color tapioca on top of that. I used some Tim Holtz grunge board that I distressed with Tim Holtz ink. The heart and wings are from Miss Marah Johnson. I'm going to try to do a page before days end so Ill try to post.

Love Yourself

WoW it's been awhile since I posted. I made this layout from the Scrapbooking From The Inside Out April kit.

I have gotten a kit every month since December and I have got to get more layout's done. I have been in a funk. There are so many things I can relate to for the challenges I just gotta figure out how to get them on the page. I have to just get past the fear of actually seeing what I feel on paper.



B-Day Card

This is a card I made for my niece for her 14th birthday. I got a huge box of sassafrass papers last month so I used some of those. It was in April but I am just getting around to getting a picture of it on my blog. 

I also have to make a BDay card for her sister so hoping to have that done by the end of this week.
-I also made an envelope flip pocket book for my g/f and I have to get some pics and try to get them up here. it was fun to make...if you want to check it out here is the tutorial...http://www.youtube.com/user/TracysTreasures24#p/u/2/fsjvm-W-Z90
She has some other great tutes also so be sure and check it out.


Today ughh

Today was an awful day. I hate the ugliness that just pours out of people on a daily basis and it is really wearing me thin being around it all day. On top of everything else I am going through right now, my son is stressing me out so badly and I really dont know how much longer it is going to be before he starts acting almost 20 and not 2!!! 

S T R E S S       S T R E S S  and U G L I N E S S     <<<<-------PLEASE GOOO AWAY!!!!!

I am going to read my book (The Postmistress by Sarah Blake) and wait for the Housewives of New Jersey to come on...Just before that comes on I am going to go upstairs to my awesomely comfy bed and the world can kiss my rear for the remainder of the day...

I hope and pray tomorrow will be better, actually I know it will because I get to see my husband tomorrow night. That makes me very happy...I love you babe



Happy Mother's Day

Had a wonderful day today...Slept until Noon. I got an awesome card from Melissa and had a beautifully wrapped gold box waiting for me to open...
This is what was inside...

A beautiful Jane Seymour Key from her signature collection. It has her open heart design in diamonds in the top part and there are black diamonds on the lower part of the key. I love it so so much. It's good to be the mamma =0)




Life is crazy...sometimes full of clouds but the sunshine is always on the other side of those clouds and manages to find it's way and shine through. Here are some pictures I took last night. Clouds are full of hope and change for brighter days!!
