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.


A few pages from my ROD journal

There are too many pages to show all so I have picked a few of my faves...Ill update pictures as I fill my journal .


So Excited

So I just saw on Facebook that I won the Unity Stamp today...I'm so excited and can't wait to use it...

Also excited that I got my signatures done for my Remains of the Day journal...now I just have to bind them in then start filling it up...decided I am going to fill it with my favorite people places and things...its going to be way cool...
Ill get some pictures posted of just my favorite pages since there are like 60 total...

Also last night I stareted my shabby fabby chunquie junquie journal...got the cover done and some inking...got the pages placed tonight but the glue stick I have is evidently minus the glue because the scrap paper is not sticking to the lined paper in the composition book...hmmmm...thinking I might have to order some helmar spray adhesive...yes...I think I will.

A few other exciting things are going on that I can't talk about yet...hopefully soon. All in all a very exciting night...

Some fun and colorful pictures taken this evening at the farmer's market and after I got home.

My first Remains of the Day journal cover

So I have been working on this every chance this week that I had...I finally got after it today, Saturday, and I am so happy with how it turned out...I have done a lot of sewing on this cover...all of the white areas of the fabric have been sewn in with pink or green color. Then all of the trim sewn on...I am having so much fun with this...It's not perfect but I like it that way...If it were perfect it wouldn't look near as cool LOL

Father's Day gift

I know I know, Father's Day was like 2 weeks ago. I left for vacation right after that and just have not had a chance to update.
I got this idea online and here is the link to where I got the instructions.http://transparenttouches.blogspot.com/2010/05/fathers-day-project-chinese-take-out.html
It was a really easy gift to make and so easy to personalize.
Hubby loved it too.

Thanks for taking a look
