A Throwback with a Video, Buttons, Flair, and Documented Life....

Hello there!

I have a new video to share with you...

And here is the finished page...
I just love how this one turned out... a new favorite for sure!

This week, I have been working hard on getting caught up with my Documented Life Project!
Here are some sneakies...





As you can tell, I have been using lots of Flair from A Flair For Buttons and plenty of gorgeous 28 Lilac Lane!

And, as you might have guessed by that last picture, I am caught up! That means I am officially 6 months in with this. So, I think a little flip through video is in order, don't you?

Stay tuned!

A Sketch Challenge, A Double Page Process Video, and some Documented Life...

Hello there! I am hosting the June sketch challenge over at Cocoa Daisy. Check out all the details here.

I even put together a video for the occasion...

And here is the final layout:

This week, I have also been hard at work on my Documented Life Project...
As you can see, I am using tons of the gorgeous 28 Lilac Lane goodies designed by the fabulous May Flaum. The full line of these gorgeous goodies is available at Ellen Hutson (link on my sidebar.)

The goal is to have May finished before June is over... HA!

Thanks for stopping by! See you soon!

Fixing the Face...

Hi there! Happy Monday!

In my last art journaling video, I mentioned how I felt one of my faces was a bit stiff. So.... it's time to change it!

Here we go:


Yes! I like it much better!



See you soon!

Walden Pond, Unboxing, and Fairy Gardens!

Hello there!

The Cocoa Daisy June kit, Walden Pond, revealed over the weekend and I have a little unboxing to share with you...



And here is what I made with those lovely goodies...






I have two process videos coming in June that go along with a couple of these projects too. Also, with much thought, I have decided to step down from the Cocoa Daisy team. I have LOVED working with them and their amazing kits but it is time for me to move on... perhaps to work on some more classes... :)

This week has involved lots of outside activities as the weather has been wonderful! We all worked on our fairy gardens and decided that the buttons from 28 Lilac Lane make the most perfect "ponds..."
Oh yes... and painting is always more fun when outside:
As we finish up a home renovation project around here, I am hoping to carve out some time this week for my Documented Life Project, as well as some pocket scrapbooking. Oh, and I have an art journaling video that will post this week as well. 

See you around the inter webs!

A New Blogging Plan, A Video, and Sneaks...


I posed a question recently on Instagram…


“Do You Still Read Blogs?”

I had a myriad of interesting responses, but the largest consensus was that NO, people are not reading blogs. It seems Instagram, Facebook, and YouTube have taken precedence for the preferred method of creative inspiration.

I can’t say that I disagree! The amount of creative blogs that I read has certainly dwindled over the last couple of years. Why? Well, I want to see the work of creative people that I admire. More often than not, that work is now available faster via Instagram, YouTube, and Pinterest.

Now, that is not always the case. And when it is not, those are the blogs that I still read!

Now a couple people brought up the interesting point that if they see something on Instagram, they are not able to easily pin it to Pinterest. Ah HA! Good point indeed!

So, why am I babbling on and on about this?

Well… it’s time for a bit of a revamp/rethink of the blog of your’s truly!






For the most part, I am now moving towards ONCE A WEEK posting. Monday, to be specific. My weekly post will include a recap of the prior week’s activities on my other various forms of sharing around the inter-webs… Instagram, YouTube, etc…

I will also include various ramblings of my creative ponderings and such.

Now, will I sometimes post more often? Of course! I am always about being flexible.

SO, without further adieu… let’s get on to this week’s post, shall we?

First up, I have a video to share with you that posted while I was enjoying some unplugged time…











And here is what I have been up to in the studio…






Did you see some Cocoa Daisy sneaks in there?

Kits reveal this Saturday night! Hope to see you there…

Thanks for stopping by and I will see you soon!

Art. Paint. Journal. Play...Seeing Red...

Good Morning!



On this spread I am playing with several ideas... bold colors, pies in eyes, and doodles in doodles....



Thanks for watching!

And now, I leave you for a few weeks while my family and I head off on an "unplugged" adventure! See you later in the month!
