New charger

Hello everyone, I cant believe how long it has been since I have been able to blog.  My charger for my laptop split and kept throwing out sparks everytime I tried to use it.  Luckily my new one came in today.  So I will be back tomorrow with a new atc to show you.  See you then.


I Heart You!!

I Heart You!!

Hey everyone wow I finally got back into wordpress. For some reason it was not liking me all week. Not to mention the fact that my webcam was not cooperating on Monday, my camera was not cooperating today. I need to take a break!! lol Well today I have an atc for you that I wanted to get posted yesterday. I am going to make a bunch of these inspirational cards to send to my daughter away at school just to let her know that we are thinking of her. I used watercolor paper for my base, a dress patteren for the background, watercolor paper for the heart and banner, distress stain by Tim Holtz, watercolor crayons, Golden gel medium, stamp set is Close To My Heart. Thanks for looking and I will see you back tomorrow.

What a week

Well today has been a lot calmer, thank goodness.  But tonight we are headed to get my daughter for a weekend visit, and of course a shopping list of stuff that she just has to have lol See everyone Monday with a video!!

This thing called life

Good afternoon!!  How is everyone today?  I hope all is well.  Do you ever just have those days that you swear are so long and you are so busy that you swear you just lived like 2 days without rest in between?  Well that was yesterday!!  We bought my oldest daughter a new laptop for her to take to college on Saturday when she left.  Well yesterday was her first day of classes and wouldnt you know it she couldnt get it to hook up to the schools printers.  ugh. She spent over 2 hours in the library working with the Geek Squad trying to update it and get it to connect.  Lets just say she was not amused.  She kept calling me freaking out and me not being very computer savy at all I was at a lost.  So what am I gonna do——Oh wait my hubbys cousin does this sort of thing for a living!!!!!!  Called him and he wasnt home, GREAT, but he called me back in a couple hours and all was saved!!  Geesh can I go to sleep now!?! lol  I was exhausted!!  But that was yesterday and today is a new day right! 

So I wanted to give you a schedule of roughly when certain types of posts would be up.  Basically when you the wonderful reader could expect to see some art work!!

Monday—-Monday morning coffee and art.  This is when there will be a video of my putting together an art journal spread.  

Tuesday—- A few life musings and answer any questions from Mondays video

Wednesday—– Atc or other piece of altered art video 

Thursday—A few life musings and answer any questions from Mondays video

Friday—-A wrap up of the week and possible more art work

I cant wait to get started next week with the first videos!!




That dreaded first post!

Really amazing to me that I just sat here for 5 minutes just looking at this blank page thinking what am I going to write.  Will anyone care about what I have to say?  Will anyone care what art projects Im working on?  Well maybe they will you never know until you try.  So here it is, here is that dreaded first post, I thought that I would tell you a little about myself.  I am a mom to 2 wonderful kids, my beautiful daughter is at Carthage College as a freshman!!  Wow how did that happen?  My wonderful son is 14 and is in 8th grade.  Both of them are just fantastic kids all the way around,  I am also married to my soul mate, he owns his own business and we are really very happy together.  We live in an old brick house that is almost 80 years old that we all just love.  We also have 3 dogs, a lizard and a fish.  Yep we have a full house around here.  We arent rich by no means but we are happy none the less. With this blog I am hoping to share my art journals, paintings, my stamped cards and my scrapbook pages, also there will be all sorts of tidbits about my life.  Check back often as there will always be something new.
