Beach Dreamin'

I've got one final layout to share from the Inside Out Live Your Dream kit. 

This time, I addressed a dream I only get to indulge in once in a while, but that I hope to indulge in more as time goes on - the beach.

I'm over on the Inside Out Blog today to share the Story Behind the Art. 



This one dream I hope to be living more sooner rather than later!!!

Peace, ya'll!

The Dentist

I'm not sure entirely why, but I have the urge to add a "DUH DUH DUH" to that...

So...the kiddos went to a new dentist here in town.

They loved it.

Which seems counter-intuitive if you had the dentist of MY childhood...

I guess going to the dentist isn't the horrible experience Bill Cosby made it out to be.

Anyway, I didn't get to take them to the appointment...so my sweet husband made sure I got the play by play for their visits.




Where were the cool sun glasses when we were kids, Huh?

Peace, ya'll!

Baby shower gift tags

Occasionally, I get asked to craft some awesome things for parties...

I love taking time out of my normal art process to make commissioned work...its refreshing and gives me the opportunity to try things I might not normally try.

This time I was asked to make a tag for a baby shower favor - Its a Girl nailpolish by OPI. The theme for the shower was "Vintage botanical" and the party hostesses had already come up with a banner that had the colors / theme.

Colors were a coral pink, chocolate, white, brown and pale gray with touches of yellow and a spring green...so so pretty!

So...I came up with these little things.



The butter fly is punched using a three step EK success punch...note to self...MUST get me more of these....

The stamp is an old Hero Arts stamp.



There are some doily pieces, some Heidi Swapp Gold mist and finally a little pearl in the middle.



They turned out so cute. They look SO CUTE nestled together on the table...





Peace, ya'll!!

by Design

One of my most exciting dreams that I have the incredible blessing to live is designing for Inside Out. I have to say that there would be a LOT less of me in my own pages without this amazing company. 

Today I'm talking about this great opportunity and my project to document it over on the Inside Out Blog. 



Artistic endeavors are soul filling and I'm extraordinarily blessed to get to do this with a company that is really focused on healing, exploring and filling our souls through art...Its a once in a lifetime gift!

You can get the whole story HERE.

Peace, ya'll!
