Lots of Exciting News

Hello my dear sweet friends - 

Boy oh boy has life been full of lots of changes.  So many new things going on - and I can't wait to share some news with you.  I am not even sure where to start so I think I will just share things throughout this next week.  

First of all I am on a new design team CS Designs and I am incredibly excited about it.  I will have more information available before the end of this month regarding the blog hop and other great stuff so I hope you will check back soon.

I just discovered as I was looking at my google account that this is my 100th blog post and that's so exciting to me.  I think I need to have a blog candy giveaway and hope you will check back on Friday for more details and join in the fun.

And I have also started a new blog (nope I am serious) and it's called "Breaking Up with Fibromyalgia".    

This blog is really a deep personal one for me because I have been battling this monster for quite a while now and I am hoping to reach out to others who are hurting and battling the same silent illness.  If you feel so inclined to check out my new blog I would really appreciate it and you can find it here:  

Breaking Up With Fibromyalgia

Thanks so much for spending some time with me and I hope you will come back.

With hugs and smiles always

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…
