Happy Happy Thursday My Dear Sweet Friends

I don't know about you but I am so ready for the weekend.  I am hoping to have plenty of time to create and maybe even take a nap.  What about you?  What are your weekend plans?


I have been working on my first Art Journal Page and I am so delighted to be finished. I actually have my first two page done but still have many empty pages to fill up. 

 It was fun and yet stressful because it felt like no matter what I did - I just couldn't get everything I wanted to use to fall into place.  As usual I was worried I would do something to mess it all up but when I made a mistake - I just used more Gesso.  How cool is that?  I find it so liberating. 

I am so thrilled at finally starting my personal Art Journal and I am really looking forward to all the different pages I will be creating and the finished journal as well.

I used a lot of different techniques in creating this page.  I have a list with everything written down and as soon as I get my mess cleaned up I will come back and post everything I used.  And that includes all the copics colors too.

(Update October 1st - I actually put everything away and threw out the sheet of paper with all the Copic colors I used as well as my other project notes.  Man oh man do I feel horrible).  

The image I used is one I commissioned with Betty, owner of Simply B Stamps. She actually made two images for me. This one of me as a fairy and the other of me as a police officer.  I just love her creations. I will be sharing my police officer art page as soon as I am finished.

I really appreciate your stopping by and your comments make my day. 
With hugs and smiles

  2. The house on Fairy Lane :) This is so cute. I love the flowers and the patterns on the "Landing Pad" with our beautiful fairy flying in after a long day of spreading happiness and fairy dust.

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
