Hi, hope you all had a wonderful Easter weekend. I spent it with family and it was great. Sometimes when things go unplanned is when they turn out the that. !.
Well, I'm still working over at 21 Secrets and I'm posting this to let you all know that Suzi Blue is having a giveaway on her blog. All you need to do is post this badge on your blog and link it back to her. I was getting a little worried about Suzi there, I know she's busy writing her book but she hadn't posted in a while. Glad you're back Suzi and good luck with your book.

It's a pretty large badge but hey it's for Suzi.

So, I'm off to continue working on my canvas . I'll check in with you guys later.
Have an awesome day. !! Blessings. !

Sit and Sleep...huh?

Crap, I have been sick for the last week. It all started with a little runny nose a little stuffy. So of course it couldn't get better so it blew up into a full size phlegm fest in my chest. I didn't want to go to the Dr. because I was afraid he'd leave me in the hospital. Since I have Sacoidosis and it's in my lungs we need to be very cautious about any kind of infection or cold turning into something a lot more seirous. Soooo, my DH called him and he prescribed some antibiotics and some other meds. Well, it destroyed my stomach and now I have this cough that's driving me insane and I can't sleep unless I am totally upright...:-(. Not all. I am literally writing this post with some ointment on my chest and neck wrapped up with a scarf to see if it helps the freaking cough any. I generally have a hard time sleeping but this is going to be BAD. Not being able to participate or do anything for my workshop 21 Secrets has got me really, really frustrated. I'm hoping this blows over soon and I can get back to work. I did finish some mixed media pages I was working on and I started one for one of the classes. It's going to be a loooooooong night for me...;

This is a page I was working on a while ago that was unfinished and finally now, FINISHED...YAY !!!

I really enjoyed this piece...reminds me of my hippie days..LOL. !!!

OK, this is one I'm working on and not quite done yet...this is how it started;

This is where it's at right now..

OK, so I will say goodnight and ask you all to say a little prayer for me...let's hope my wrapped up scarf with the ointment will help my cough tonight....

Blessings...and nite..!!!!!!

Thank You Everyone.

Well, another year has gone by and I am a year old you ask? Not going !! It's been a pretty good year but then again it's all how we view things. I gotta say it was a pretty good day , got me some nice gifts .I spent it with family and friends which is always the best way to spend your Birthday. Looking at all of the wonderful well wishes I received on FB , emails ,cards...really was the peak of my day. What a wonderful warm feeling one gets when you see that someone takes the time to send you a message and wish you well. I'm very grateful and I hope you all get the same ten fold.
Today I received a package from a very sweet friend from Washington..Chel. I was blown away. Being the sentimental fool that I am, it made me cry. She made these lovely magnets , baked some awesome goodies, send me a cute Blue beanie bear and the greatest Birthday card with the sweetest message. Thanks Chel, you are loved..!!
OK, so I haven't been spending too much time in my workshop this week. It's been one heck of a week though and today I spent what energy I had cleaning up my bedroom. I am pooped. But, I do have a pic of the art journal page I was working on for Tam's class over at 21 Secrets....all finished. I'm hoping tomorrow I will be able to get some artsy stuff done and catch up on some classes...have a great weekend...Blessings to you all. !!!!

It's Almost Finished.

Hey, just thought I would pop in before I start to wind down for the day and begin my "try to get some sleep" It's been a good day today. I feel like I've gotten things done. I got in some reading, and above all got sort of caught up on my class projects. Here is the art journal page I began today. It's got lots of work on it and it's not quite done yet. I need to let it dry a bit and tomorrow I should be done. I also finished my Spring ATC's for my exchange group...yay. !!!

Here are both projects....have a great night everyone...don't let the bed bugs bite...Blessings. !!

Hi, Happy Sunday to all of you. I have been working like a little bee these days,hence my delay in posting on my blog. I am working on the 21 Secrets over at DirtyFootprints Studios. They have 21, yes 21 great artists sharing all of their wonderful secrets with us. Right now I am working with Tamara Laporte on Collage, Paint & Soul. It is fantastic !!! All of the classes being offered will knock your socks off. Go take a look and see for yourselves. It will definitely keep you busy for a while.

So many new classes now and they are all inspiring . They all keep us busy and enjoying our journey through the Art Healing Process.
