Despite the rain, the temperatures have been almost spring-like....in the 60’s and it even hit 71 degrees a day or two ago.… Continue reading Overflowing with Flowers
It was a dreary overcast day when I was playing around and practicing my watercoloring....and using my Aqua Painter, so I decided to make something bright and cheery. So put your sunglasses on and gaze at my pink creation....shades of Lovely Lipstick and Mango Melody to be exact. This stamp set I used is called… Continue reading Pretty in Pink
One of the gifts my husband and I received at Christmas was an Amazon Echo Dot, so now I can out loud and I have somebody that will listen and respond...if I call Alexa’s name that is.

Blue birds.… Continue reading Taking a Bird Break
When I first saw the Santa’s Workshop Designer Series paper with the whimsical elves and Santa & Mrs. Claus....I wasn’t really enamored. I don’t have small children anymore...my two daughters are long past the wonder of Santa Claus, Mrs. Clause and his elves. But I purchased it anyway because it was the only “fun” looking… Continue reading Mrs. Claus Dreams of Snow!
