Challenge 12 - "May Day" Challenge at Tuesday Alchemy

Today is such a gorgeous day in California.  The sun is shining and there is a slight cool breeze which is refreshing and relaxing.  Makes me wish I could create outside all day today.  Hope your day is full of sunshine and happiness too.

This weeks challenge at Tuesday Alchemy is "May Day".  I have decided to submit my magnetic board especially since I enjoy making them.  I thought I would share two photos one with the magnets and the other without.   If you haven't done so already, check out the Tuesday Alchemy Blog and submit your own creation to the contest.


  1. How lovely...pretty AND functional! Love the papers, too.

  2. Oh, so pretty, Laine! That would be perfect for a shabby chic or cottage garden or just because it's lovely home :)

    I'm happy you joined in this week's challenge!

    Lots of joy,

  3. I love the look! I can't even tell that it is magnetic! Very flattering to put in any home!

  4. So cute! A wonderful decoration in your home! Thanks for sharing with Tuesday Alchemy!

  5. Hi Laine first may I say how wonderful it is that you have become one of my followers, I have also joined your blog so I can come back and see your wonderful work. I have been having a look at your beautiful creations they really look amazing so inspirational and full of creativity. One thing that brought me more joy than you will ever know is the video of Hercules, I love all animals but dogs in particular, in fact my very first dog was a Pomeranian, she was my Princess and I loved her with all my heart. I now have a Jack Russell Terrier who will be 17 yrs on June 10th. I have enjoyed my visit I will be back again.

Cinderella goes Camo

Hello my dear sweet friends -

I hope this finds you doing well.  It's been a while since I have been able to post and yet I have been able to get quite a few loose ends tied up.  I ended up making a quick trip to California to get the rest of personal stuff out of storage.  I am no longer scattered across three states and I can't even begin to express how wonderful that feels.  It will take me some time to get all my craft stuff set up and organized again but it looks like I will be able to really get on the ground running again.  It was a group effort and my sisters and brother in law were amazing and so incredibly helpful.  

A few days before the trip I received a phone call (out of the blue) from a dear friend I worked with at the Police Department in California 20 years ago.  It was great hearing from him and we have been having fun getting caught up on things. My my, so many new and exciting changes.  I am still working on getting my health back on track and doctors say I a…

You are Mer-Mazing!!!

Happy Tuesday Sweet Friends
I hope you are having a fabulous day!!  And I am really hopeful it's not overly hot where you are.  It's suppose to be 114 degrees here today and I am NOT looking forward to that.   What I am looking forward to is sharing my newest creation using this absolutely amazing image by Sherri Baldy.  She was so much fun to color and the background was really fun to create as well.  I just love her - she looks like she's just chillin' and enjoying her surroundings.  It's kind of magical and I would love to be there with her.  

I used Copics to color her and the colors I used are:
B00, 02, 04, 05, 12, 14 (Background and her Eyes) E000, 00 11, 31, 33, 35   (Skin and Sand). RV02, 04, 21, 23 (Water Background) V01, 05, 06, 09  (Mermaid tail, top, flowers, background and seaweed) YG21, 23, 25   (Water Background) YR21, 23, 25 (Hair)
I hope she brings you a smile.  Here's the link to her in Sherri's Etsy Shop: Sherri Baldy on Etsy - Image 661 Here's the lin…
