I am BACK.......

Hello My Dear Sweet Friends

I am back and so happy to be here.  It's been a long time and sure appreciate your sticking with me.  I am finally able to step back into my Design Team roles and my first project is with Morgan's Art World which will be going live at midnight Eastern time Saturday.  

It's been a tough year for me and I am so happy to finally be able to dip my feet back into Blog Land.   I am finally learning my health needs to come first and I can't push myself as hard as I have been all these years.  Boy - tough lessons to say the least. I have some great doctors and counselors that are helping me put my life back together again.

I am so looking forward to getting a little caught up on what I have been missing.

Thanks for stopping by and it feels great to be back.

I also want to thank some terrific ladies who have been so incredibly patient with me as one of their DT members by allowing me the time to get all my ducks back in a row and my health back on track.  Thanks so much!!  I absolutely love being on your Design Teams.

With love, hugs and smiles
Laine K

    1. Thanks Ingrid. I sure have missed being part of the group. So happy to be back. I promise to take it easy. Just finished moving to our own little place and hubby has been working so hard to put together a functioning craft room for me. I am so wanting to make so many things but my craft room has to be a little functioning.

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…
