Happy Memorial Day!!!

Hi Everyone,

Again it has been way too long.........I thought I would have done a better job of keeping my blog updated!! I will have to try and do at least one post a week.
I started a couple of classes in January and I have been busy doing them!! My favorite class is Life Book 2014 with Tamara Laporte!!! I love this class and have met so many new people it really has been well worth the money!! And yes I will be signing up next year!! I highly recommend this class!
So today I thought I should add some pictures of my recent art work. I hope you like it.

Holy Smokes........

Hi Y'all.....
I am amazed that it has been since April that I posted on my Blog!! Wow.......that is not good. I am going to try and do better this coming year.
I have signed up for two classes and they both run for the full year!! Yay! I will always have inspiration so excited. One class is called Moonshine 2014 and that is being taught by Effy Wild and you can find that information here http://effywild.com/ I am very excited to be a part of this class. :)
The other class I will be taking is called Life-book 2014 and that is being taught by Tamara Lapointe and you can find her information here http://www.willowing.org/ and she is going to have quest teachers and OMG I am so excited to be a part of both of these classes....
My passion has gone from card making to mixed media I still make cards but I do more art now. I find it to be really relaxing and I just love to see all the new faces I can come up with. It all started with Jane Davenport she has a class called Whimsical Faces and need I say more......I was hooked. I have taken classes from Megan King Suarez she is found here http://meganscreativebliss.blogspot.com/ and then there is Donna Downey who I have been watching her videos forever she is here http://www.donnadowney.typepad.com/ Lots and lots of practice and now I think I have gotten to a point where I don't hate my drawings so much. It was not pretty in the beginning some of it was really sad.
I will share with you some of my new art work. I sure hope you like it.

Have a great weekend and I promise to be back!! lol

Wow....... I knew it had been a long time since my last Blog but since December!!!!!! I had a lot going on. My Dad passed away last month :( It was a hard end to the month. Not sure where the time has gone either. But I have been creating which is a good thing and great therapy.
I was able to get my paws on some Julie Nutting stamps and I love them!! Ellen Hutsons store had them and they are now sold out. I was lucky to find them, if you want to see if she has any back in stock or you want to be told when they are back in stock. Go to www.ellenhutson.com then check under stamps and then prima. Here are some of my latest creations I am sorta teaching myself mixed media along with the help of some videos out there and some fabulous creators like Donna Downey at http://www.donnadowney.typepad.com/  Traci Bautista at http://kollaj.typepad.com/kollaj/  and of course Julie at  http://www.julienuttingdesigns.blogspot.com/ I could go on and on.
My first canvas using one of the paper doll stamps.

My second canvas not finished yet. I love that new tissue paper from Tim Holtz.

Here is the finished product. I added a few extra elements. Not sure if I can call it finished just yet. Lol
I made this tag from one of the stamp packages. They come on a large tag so I thought why not gesso it up and do a background and add this sweet paper doll

 Thank you for stopping by and have a sunny Sunday!

12 Tags of Christmas tag #3

Hi there,
Oh yes I must be on a roll. I made another tag for the 12 tags of Christmas with a feminine twist. This tag's inspiration comes from Kelly Alvarez's tag. So of course I had to use a lawn fawn set. The snowmen are so cute!!!
