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 www.swap-bot.com 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 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!
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!
Coming soon I will have a store front featured through Lollishops it will be launching late this fall. My work was chosen for this site which brings many talented women together who are all hand crafters. Many of us have an Etsy site as well but this will vary from that storefront. I will keep you posted as I'm currently adding some new creations in different mediums. Just in time for Christmas - Yeah! I'll keep you posted & let you know when the launch will be :)Can't wait for you to check it out!
I'm just tingly over leaving in a few short hours for my Art class through the fabulous group ZNE it's the first annual Convenzione. (www.zneart.com) I stumbled upon this group online & the networking, friendship, & inspiration is trully amazing. I can't begin to tell you what it means to meet more of these fab ladies. I'm taking a class called "Little Pink Houses" by: SallyJean Alexander! (not the exact house I'm making in pic but 3/4") I'll be sure to write more when I return I'm leaving cyber world behind at home for a few days. I'll take pics too!

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.
Hi I)m the mother of 2 boys (18 & 14) they are my pride & joy. In my spare time or should I say my passion is creating in various mediums. You see I have played with many art forms since I was a child & I love to be creative when I'm not working for a living.
I primarily create Altered Art, Jewelry, Faux Cakes. My work is sold via Etsy, my website, & E-Bay.
I thank all of you that have supported my work via kind words or sales. Each piece is a little bit of me & it's a joy to have someone like what I do.
