Little Patch of Heaven

We all have one (hopefully).
It can be your own yard or garden...or it can be a park or spot along the river.

I have a number of places...trees and water always make me happy :)

Find your Little Patch of Heaven today and celebrate it:

Right now...sunshine is going to make me happy. I'm going to go soak up the rays and read :)


It's A Party!!

We had a great weekend of playing and relaxing (a nice mixture of both!).

Saturday was Hayden's birthday. 9 years old. Where does the time go?
He wanted to take some friends up to the hot springs, so we played in the pool all day. Had a picnic. Then they came home and had a sleep over. Wore themselves out!

The kids have always wanted to buy a disposable underwater camera. We bought one and took tons of pics. They should be developed by Friday. If they are any good, I'll share :)

Sunday we were all bums. Bored games. Time in the sun. A nap. Perfect!

I did get some scrapbooking in before the fun started:

It's a Party! I have it listed here on eBay. It's a girlie party...but those are so much more fun to scrap! The cupcakes and gifts are my artwork. The little girls are images from Saturated Canary. Super fun to color with Copics.

And I also colored these for the current layout that I am working on:

These are my designs that I drew and colored. It was a busy weekend!

They are all cut out and ready to be placed on a scrapbook page. Hopefully, I'll get to that stage soon!

Hope you all had a great weekend!


Coloring Always Makes Me Happy...

Just a quick pop in to show you what I have been coloring...

It was way more time consuming than I expected. Kyla and I have been sitting at the table most of the morning :) We aren't complaining though. Coloring is always fun!

The image is a blending of two digis from Saturated Canary. Keep checking in to see what I make with them...


How Long Has it Been?

Happy Tuesday!

It's already been a super productive morning. I woke up early to go teach a Yoga class (the regular instructor had a family event come up). Normally, I practice in the late afternoons or evenings.

Morning was different. Refreshing. I am in love with Down Dog and Frog Pose. I'm ready to tackle this day! Namaste :)

Yesterday I finally went down to my craft room and scrapbooked. I can't even remember the last time I made a page. I've had the urge. The desire. Never the follow through.

Words do not describe how content I felt yesterday when I finally started putting papers together, cutting, glueing, and creating!

I listed this one on eBay. I also have another one that I am hoping to finish today. I'll post it here when I get it done.

I'm not sure which part I enjoy more...the coloring or the scrapping. Good thing I get to do both!

It's been awhile since I posted a free goodie. This happy guy is looking for some love and attention:

Download him by clicking here: Happy Dog. Directions on how to use him are posted at the top of the blog :)

Okay. I'm off to be creative.

Hope you all have a wonderful day!


Let's Try That Again...

It's been rainy and drizzly here. And Oh So COLD!

I'm so ready for warm weather. Summertime...where are you?

While I have been stuck inside, under a blankie, I have finished a book (Weird Sisters...really good!).
I have debated different art projects.
I have spent time with the in-laws.
I have drank coffee and read my book at the library.
I've searched through online scrapbook kits.

And, I've decided to start selling on eBay again.

I loved scrapping and sharing (I have CD's full of pictures of all the things I made over the years. Yikes! I have gone through some supplies!).

Here is my first listing in a loooonng time:

I am currently coloring and scheming my next few layouts. Check back often!

Happy Sunday,


It's Summer Time!

Good Morning!!

It's officially the first day of summer break (the weekend doesn't really always just feels like another weekend). When you wake up on that first Monday and you know you don't have to go to school...that's when it starts to feel real :)

To celebrate, I have a free digi for you.

She is super sweet!! And ready for coloring and crafting :) You can download by clicking here.

I've added some fun new things to the shop...with more on the way:

Happy Monday!
