December greetings

Merry December wishes to you all,
I've been away from the net for a while. At Thanksgiving I had 9 guests come from out of state, I started a new job in November & am working a bit more. Things were a bit scary since I was losing my job. Fortunately I went straight into a new one. I'm just thankful for a J-O-B. I also as previously mentioned started doing more swaps. Go to it's so terribly addicting. Because of this I 've made my first apron, dotee dolls, & ATC's. Wow what a blast. I've gotten things from as far away as Germany. I've sent things to Canada, Hawaii, Australia to name a few. Isn't this image a sweetie I found her on Flickr. I have a ton of pics to add I just have to get it done. Hope your finding some time to do the things you love.

I have joined the addicting life of Swaps. If you aren't familiar it is when you create a piece of art with a theme & send it off to a fellow artist in another state or country even. It can be a lot of fun. I enjoy it because your giving to a person that also shares your interests most likely & the potential for great friendship is also there. I have been burned already & I've only been at it a few months. This is very disappointing & I could rant about it but I am a believer in what goes around comes around. At any rate this pic is of my Lollipop sweet treat Fairy ATC. Would you believe it's the first time I've made an ATC. Join a swap today it's very well worth it!

Here's my skeleton plaques that went over pretty well at my last show.
We had a fun night going to my oldest son's Spooktacular band concert & then venturing down the Haunted Hallway complete with band kids in costume.
Happy Fall everyone!

Faux Strawberry Cake

Here is a pic of one of my Faux cake creations. I sold this cake to "Poppy" via Etsy & she was taking a pic to show me how well it worked on her cake plate, when her adorable daughter modeled with it! I just thought it was so cute. Isn't she sweet as pink sprinkles? I explained I needed a good cake model as my boys 15 & 11 are not into modeling with faux cakes alas she said go right ahead & use the pic :) too sweet!

ZNE Convenione

Hello Fabulous Friends! I had the best time in California at the first annual ZNE Convenzione. Welcome to my new home "Little pink House" created in Sally Jean Alexander's workshop. I must say creating this was very fun & freeing. I just let it go & was pretty happy with the end result. Mz Sally Jean was so kind & gracious. She's a lovely person.
I met so many great people as well - The friendship's gained were amazing! Special thanks to Chel & Donna my lil angels that made sure I got where I needed to go :) Cheers to my fab dinner partners (that includes ice-cream for supper), super roomies, fun classmates! I could go on forever but just know I want to do it again soon!

Mid week / Angels among us

Well it's been a fairly calm week thus far.

I have had some chronic pain for some time now in my upper neck. I had tried Chiropractor & M.D. but nothing was working. A few weeks ago I went to a different Chiro who practices subluxation which is spinal alignment. This man has offered me such hope. He diagnosed my problem through X-Rays & refuses to "crack" me stating that is not going to help with my ligament damage. So to make a long story short I'm going in 3 days a week along with stretching exercises & by gum I can see a difference in just 2 weeks! Wow! I just had to share because I'm so in awe.

Happy Tuesday

I had a good weekend & survived the heat during square fair. I was very happy with how my booth looked. Here's some pics of it.
I also was able to get my haircut, chair massage, & manicure which was lovely! Proceeds went to local cancer center so it was win win all around. I feel like a semi new woman. Ha
Now it's back to work today - mini vacation is over :( oh well...
