It's all about MAX

Hello my dear sweet friends - 

Where has time gone?  It's like I have just turned around and lost four months of my life.  I guess in some ways its kind of true. Silly me!!

I am happy to be back and have lots of new things to share as well as getting caught up on what's been going on with you on your blogs and in your lives.

I have some new projects I will be sharing too!!!

I have decided that my first post will be on the more personal side of things and share the newest addition to my family.  Some of you may remember I lost my dear Hercules in August of last year and it was quite heartbreaking. Hercules was such a special part of my life for over 13 years and his passing left quite a huge hole in my heart.  Well like they say - time heals and there is some truth to that statement I guess.  I still miss Hercules everyday and wasn't sure if I would ever get another dog or not.  

Well seven months later I have had a new little furry guy show up needing a new home and the rest is history.  His name is Max and he is a dog rescued from a dog shelter.  I don't know a lot about him except he is adorable, sweet, faster than a speeding bullet, cuddly, and I love how one ear is pointed down and the other pointed to the side.  He has stolen my heart and brings a lot of joy to my world.  So without any further delay - this is Max.

I will be back tomorrow to share a new project and hope you will stop by and say hello.

With smiles and hugs

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…
