About Me

My photo
I'm so glad you dropped in for a visit, and hope you find something of interest on my blog. If so, I hope you will hit the FOLLOW button, and carry on this journey with me. It's always great to make new friends, and share our ideas and thoughts with each other. There is no telling what I will be getting myself into...just a fair I enjoy so many things! To name a few: I like drawing, painting, sketching, painting, wood burning, candle making, crocheting, canning, cooking, gardening, natural health, sharing thoughts and ideas, prepping for rainy days, and more. WHEW! I hope you enjoy it! And, I welcome any suggestions from you, as well.
I am a wife, a mother, a daughter, a designer (for DecoArt), and a artist (published a few times in magazines). I also have a bachelor's degree in Natural Health Science's. I have so many hobbies and things I dabble in, that I hope you find something of interest!

Social Artworking

Okay, anyone heard of this?  It sounds like lots of fun!  Go to Social Artworking and check it out.  If you like to get together with groups of your friends, and are looking for something different to do, this might just fit!  Social Artworking would be a great thing to do for celebrating any of life's events, too.  Who says you have to play those silly games at wedding showers, baby showers, etc.?  This would be a great exception, and leave your friends talking about the great time they had!

Looks like I might be teaching this, as well, at our local Joann's in the near future.  So, if you have any question about what "Social Artworking" is, drop me a line!  Looks like lots of fun!! : )  A few paintings:

Scrapbooking By The YARD

Okay, here is something to inspire all of you!  Spring is here, and it is so beautiful outside!  I have a huge yard, but not much time to be working in it, and it seems impossible for me to tackle...just plain overwhelming!  So, we are going to take it one space at a time!

I am going to show you how you can take one little corner at a time, and turn it into something you will just love!

Today I am going to show you just one spot that I will be working on.  It will be our BEFORE photo.  Then, I will post a picture of the AFTER photo, and tell you how to accomplish it!

If you have been interested in creating some little interesting spots in your yard, join me in this venture!  Through a little labor, handpainting, cement work (possibly?), or whatever we decide to go with, you will see changes that you will enjoy.

I call it "Scrapbooking By The Yard", simply because we will be taking pieces of "stuff" and turning this yard into a pleasure to be in, one "yard" at a time! : ) 

This photo will be my starting point.  Join my ventures!  I'd love to see what you are doing too!!
