Happy Spring my crafty friends....It has been awhile since my last post, where does the time go? I have had some home and health issues I have been dealing with in the previous months, but all is finding harmony again, I am on the mend and ready once again to take on the world. I have so missed my craft room and sticky, inky messy piles of fun.  So as a first post in sometime I have decided to let you know what I have been up to in last week or so. With my brand new Cameo, my mojo is slowly returning, and my new shipment of shiny beads I am ready to get this show on the road.
I have started once again playing in my art journals, I have really missed my art journals. So here are 2 pages I completed.  It was so amazing to play with all the inks and mediums once again. To me an Art journal is a place to record your thoughts, emotions and feelings as they are happening. It is great therapy to be able to put to paper the good, the bad and the ugly. Today I was having one of those moments and awaiting my creative spark to return, as I was putting the color down it hit me.  None of us or very few go through life with everything roses every day all day, we have to grab a hold of that moment and live it the best we can in that second. I decided to not feel bad for myself and went looking for my MOJO! This is what I found...
SO Carpe Diem to you....Seize the day

Back from Chicago!!

I have to say, I was a bit worried about going to Chicago, its a big place full of people and traffic, and things this old country girl just does not experience. I am a true country girl, always have been always will be, I love the smell of the fresh cut hay, the barnyard sounds and smell, and I love to look at all of Mother Nature's beautiful lakes, streams, mountain ranges, valleys full of wild flowers, and the smell of horses and leather, nuts? perhaps, but it's how I have lived my entire 50+ years it is what i love. Saddle up my best girl and go out riding, or load up and head to the nearest rodeo. The rodeo life is long, tiring, hard work and at the same time very rewarding. Just you and your horse making memories and having fun.
I have been to Milwaukee, new Orleans, baton rouge, phoenix, tucson, Indiannapolis, St Paul Mn, and a few other larger cities, but I have to say, CHICAGO you are spectacular!!
My son's booked a penthouse suite for 3 day, along with Garth brooks tickets, that alone was an incredible gesture, when the 3 of us opened the door to a penthouse(54 floors up) it literally took our breath away! I have never seen such an amazing view from way up on top. It was sensational! although I am a country girl, I was blown away by the miles of buildings and sky-scrappers, each one more beautiful than the next. I was so excited for evening to come and see the city at night. I definitely have a new appreciation for big city living. I would never give up my country life, but I can honestly say I would love to spend more time in Chicago. I took 664 photos in 3 days. At times I would just sit on the corners and watch that world move, and it moved in every direction at high speed, no lazy day afternoons sipping tea on the porch, it is a constant movement. The city is so rich in cultural arts, and theater, and my goodness so so many things to do. We did not have time to do or see everything, we did our best thou. A wide variety of food and entertainment, and people. I met more people from other countries than I did from the U.S....It seems even other countries are taken with Chicago's diversity and opportunity. After 2 days of eating and sight seeing, we were ready to watch Garth brooks in concert, see back in 1991, on his first tour he came to Milwaukee and I took my boys, they were then 7 and 15. Well this time around they took me, and did it in style, complete with limo ride to and from concert. It was an amazing concert, just as good as if not better than his first tour. He is an amazingly talented humble man, we loved every second. Thank you to my wonderful Son's for a week I will never ever forget! You are amazing young men and I am proud of you everyday of my life, and honored to call you mine! Thank you for a unforgettable vacation. With every beat of my heart I love you more!

Here we come Chicago and Garth

Getting packed and ready for a trip to Chicago to see Garth Brooks. We seen him back April 13, 1996 in Milwaukee, his first ever tour, we front and center and had a blast, tickets were about 10.00 each and his show was FANTASTIC!!!
I am sure he will not disappoint this go around either. This time instead of a seedy motel and the parking/driving issues we have rented a penthouse and a limo door to curb and back. I can't wait, me and my boys and a few friends will once again make the trip.
so there will be no market or craft show for me this weekend. Will post pics as I get them...
Have a great week all

Craft Shows in full force.

Hello my crafty friends, well it is that time of year again, when craft shows and fairs are everywhere. I do have several larger shows coming up which I will post, but in the mean time I will be in Manitowoc every saturday from 8am to 1pm. Lots of new things to see and projects to do, new flower kits, tear bear kits, layouts, altered arts, new classes which by the way are always free, I even have a few sparkly items. I am also going to be giving away  in weekly drawing so stop on down on Saturday's and pick up your freebies and enter the drawing.
Classes are scheduled to start in August which by the way is not that far awaym considering this is almost end of June. Not a very good Summer thus far,

A sneak peek and some sparkle and shine.All Swarovski crystals all hand beaded by me. It is a great diversion from paper and ink, and I do love to be creative.
Have a great week my friends, see you on Saturday's, unless it is raining. You can check my blog here or Facebook to see if the weather is forcing me too stay home.

Survivor, Paper bag album

 This is a new scrapbook I have designed and put together. We all know one of these very special people, courage, strength, determination, and spitit for fighting and over coming. This project is very special to me and although it was an emotional project to complete I have completed it for a very special person in my life.

 This is a paperbag album, all files used were designed in my beloved MTC program and inkscape, and cut on my favorite machines, including Sizzix and spellbinders.

 There are plenty of pockets and tags for additional photos and journaling.

 If you would like to order your own custom album, please email me. Wait time is approximately 2 weeks.
If anyone would like the files used in this album, leave comment with email address and I will send them.
Hope you all have a craft happy day.

A little sparkle and shine for spring time

After this horrendous winter which still has not left our grips I decided I needed a little sparkle and shine among all the muck yuck. So while beading some stick pins for my scrap projects I decided to go back to my old ways, and before I knew it I had a pile of bling. All for sale, all real gems and swarovski crystals, dont see your favorite color, I can make to  your specifications.
I will only load a few here as there are way too many to list.     

Hope you all have a great day..
