Back in the Posting Saddle Again and It's a Bloobel Kind of Day

Hello My Sweet Friends

I think I am finally back in the crafting and posting saddle again.  I am getting  a little more settled from the move from Washington State to Oregon.  I am still trying to figure out how to get my craft area set up.  We are temporarily staying with my sister until hubby finds a new job.  I even ended up spending a couple days in the hospital but turns out it was nothing serious and that's good news.  

I also thought it would be fun to share the card I made using this amazing image from Artist Lisa Bloobel.  It's an image we are using for her first progressive challenge which ends tomorrow.  I had so much fun with this image and we had to fill in the sign with our "protest" message.

(Second Version)

As you can see this one looks a lot different than the one above.  I had just finished coloring her and added all the signs and put her off to the side on my table.  A few moments later hubby sat down but spilled his coffee which actually had more cream than coffee (hence the color - LOL).  It wasn't funny at that particular moment but I am thrilled it turned out the way it did.  I am much happier with my second version.  What do you think???
 
If you would love to join in Lisa's monthly progressive challenge here is the link for more information:


 Thanks so much for stopping by and your comments mean the world to me.

  3. Hum, is hubby still alive? :) I think I would have struggled not to explode a little! It's much better to spill coffee on something BEFORE it's coloured in, I hope you told him that for next time? I love the second version, and her pink protest!

    1. Hi Annabel - yes, hubby is still alive. LOL!!! He felt so bad. He had the saddest look on his face and kept saying "Sorry" in such a sad tone of voice. I was just stunned when it happened though. LOL!!! Thanks for stopping by Annabel.

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…

Freshly Baked Cookies

She can be found here in Sherri's Etsy Shop. Bestie Image 051 and I just think she's adorable.
