Oh heck what a day !!

Hi friends,
Its been a busy day around here. WE had a lot of wind and rain last night so it made for a restless night. Sleeping next to a rattling window is a bit of a problem then there is the skylight over the garden tub which I though was so cool and romantic 19 years ago when first moved in but it and the 2 exhaust fans sure make sleeping rough when its super windy. Another major event for us today Ariel got her nose broken at school in P.E. playing kickball. School called we picked her up then to the Doctor who sent us over for x-rays. Got the call at lunch time She definitely has a deviated septum so we see the ear nose throat specialist Monday morning He is the same doctor who took care of Jeremes broken nose in 1998 so we know he is a good doctor. Seems never to be dull around here I think what ever will I do when my house empty of smallish people?? Hopefully hide out I my super-duper fabulous craft room 🙂 Well a girl can always dream can’t she lol. I am going to be working on a Mother’s Day tribute for my Mom to set with her urn at my Dads. Levi made a card for Melissa since Sierra made something at school. I am hoping to get this project posted also since I can see the photos in my last post finally. I wish each Mother and Mother to be and very Blessed Mother’s Day I know I’m early but I wanted to make sure that I did.

Much love and many hugs,


My mixed media canvas Graphic 45’s Couture collection

_203 Ok Friends I am going to try this a different way to see if it posts. Here is my first ever mixed media canvas using graphic 45’s Couture collection. This is a very beautiful collection and I love it. I really didn’t have this in mind when I started the canvas I just picked some colors of paint that I liked and had at it. I then stamped some script. I used my drywall shackling with a stencil to add texture. I tore some scraps of paper and glued them down randomly with mod podge. I then added my tiles of images I cut out and glued them down . I added a strip of lace ribbon and glued a Coco Chanel saying strip and a row of bling. I used some red spray on some rosettes to match the red in the tiles and put 2 rhinestone flourishes to the roses to look like leaves. On one tile I added a row of black bling. I used some rub and buff on some of the stenciled leaves.Then mod podged over the whole thing I think this can be very addictive I could use all my hoarded paper that I can’t seem to part with them I may run out of wall space in my crafty corner….wait a minute I already have…. I guess I can stock up on wall art for my future craft room 🙂 Let me know what you think and if you haven’t thought of giving this a try, please consider it. Creating this was very rewarding.








Love and hugs,
