Challenge 16 - Fruitylicious - Tuesday Alchemy

Happy Happy Tuesday!!!

It still seems like Monday to me - I guess three day weekends still throw me off a little.  Spent the weekend moving everything out of storage and into my sister's garage.  Fortunately the weather was a little cooler which made the project a little more tolerable.

This weeks challenge with Tuesday Alchemy is called "Fruitylicious" and I really hope you decide to join in this month.  We have a terrific prize and personally I would love to see what ideas everyone comes up with.

My sister has a bowl of decorative fruit on one of her tables in the kitchen and for some reason I am fascinated by it.  If that sounds odd to you - well in a way it does to me too but I wanted to see where this creative journey would take me.

I love all the colors, textures, and shapes.  I guess you can say it appeals to me on an artistic level and I wanted to make something for this challenge with that image.  I decided to take some photographs of the bowl of fruit and I thought it would make a great key holder my sister can use as a decorative element in her kitchen area.  She loves it and even though it was a really simple project in a lot of ways there is something really rewarding about this one.

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…

It's Going To Be A Fabulous New Year

Hello My Lovelies
It seems I am always thrilled for the beginning of a new year. Time to put some things to rest and begin focusing on new dreams and goals.  I love pulling out my new 2018 planner and put it together and then filling up the pages, writing down my new dreams and goals as they pop into my brain.  Helps me stay more focused rather than feeling confused and lost. Plus there are some amazing new planners out there that make it fun and really pretty too.  My temporary move is behind me and hubby and I are feeling more settled.  My bronchitis and pneumonia are finally behind me and I couldn't be happier. 
I have decided to post my DT projects not only on my Hugs 4 The Heart Facebook group but coming back to begin posting here again as well. I hope you will come and visit me. I am also on Pinterest, Instagram and on Etsy.  I will be back tomorrow with all the links. My most exciting goal is get set up and doing lots of crafting videos too

Thanks for all your encouragement an…

Cupcake and a Celebration

Hello Lovely Ladies
I hope your weekend has been fabulous thus far.  It's been sunny here with a cool breeze.  It's been a welcome relief from all the cold and rainy days.   Today I am sharing a card I made in celebration of a one year anniversary for Leigh S-B Designs.  She created this cute cupcake image in celebration as well as for a challenge of sorts. 
I created my heart shaped card and used lots of Washi tape to create the background.  I all used white Cardstock borders to help break up the color.  I colored the cupcake and the number ONE with Copic's. 
Here's the card I created:




Leigh congratulations on your first year anniversary.  I hope you have many more.  Your images are wonderful and fun to color.

Thanks for stopping by.  It always makes me smile

With hugs and smiles
