Memory box & card: You’ve touched my life

"Stop procrastinating and write a blog post already" I keep telling myself! I put the task on my calendar for this morning and promised myself that I would make this a priority today! If I made New Year's resolutions, I would say mine would be to quit procrastination and stop chasing those "squirrel" distractions! I should have blogged about this a few months ago but better late then never! I am in love with altered cigar boxes that hold handmade cards! A lot of work? Why yes, yes it is! But oh, the results are well worth the effort!

Changing Lives and Hearts

"Delight yourself in the Lord, and He will give you the desires of your Heart"  Psalm 37:4 I have no doubt that God places people in our lives and in our path at different times for a purpose.

Whether you create for a living or, just create to create, running into a "block" can really be frustrating can't it? I've had those days.....often they run in a row and I can't seem to get beyond them. I was talking to a fellow artist one day and this subject came up so I asked the question of her "what do you do on days you are blocked?" She acknowledged having times with little to no inspiration but said she learned a long time ago that even though she is unable to create something new, FULL STORY HERE....... Read more

Strength Hope Faith – Finding A Cure

Good morning everyone and welcome back for another post supporting breast cancer and finding a cure! I was browsing the internet and came across a similar layout which I just fell in love with! Notice the image on these two creations? Yes! It's the same image that was used in my previous post which you can read about here. (The image, created by Krista Smith, Saturated Canary LLC is called “Boobie Love”) Since this is a digital image, I was able to resize it and make her bigger with focus on her upper body. I'll be honest in telling you that coloring her with Copics was much easier with the image larger because there are several areas with tight spaces (I was never one to be FULL STORY HERE.......
