The Hands of Time and an Altered Clock

Happy Happy New Year My Dear Sweet Friends

Well, 2015 is finally here and I am full of hopes and dreams for this New Year. 
One of my biggest goals is to continue working on my health issues and learn more about how to use my Copics (and World Peace).

 What about you?  What are some of your goals, hopes and/or dreams for 2015??

I am also excited to share my first project as a DT member with Rhedd's Creative Spirit.  I have loved Sandie's blog challenge for quite some time and I feel so incredibly honored to be a part of this amazing group of talented team.  Thanks so much Sandie!!

This is a 12" by 12" piece of wood that I recycled.  It already had the hole in the middle of it but I don't remember how long ago that part was done.  Anyway, I thought it was time to alter it into something and decided to make a clock.  I painted it brown and then used Mod Podge to adhere and seal the background cardstock.  Glued lace around the outside, added some buttons on the face of the clock where the numbers go and then some flowers.

This was actually a pretty quick project except for deciding how to embellish it.  My goodness, the biggest challenge was deciding which buttons and flowers to use.

Thanks for stopping by - I really do hope you will jump into 2015 by joining in our challenge.  It's anything goes as long as it fits into the month's theme.  I hope you will also check out the rest of the beautiful projects created by the Design Team.  And here's the link where you can join in:

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…
