The latest headline prompt for Fall Fearless and Fly grabbed me unexpectedly! There was a completely different plan for my Fall Fearless art. I had planned to do the color prompt but I could not get the questions out of my head. Before I knew it my Fall Fearless had merged with my Artsy Fartsy. [...]
This has been a journal page that has spanned months. I started it and then it buried under a pile of other projects. Does that ever happen to you? As I cleaned up my studio I found this and finished it instead of finishing my cleaning… Started with [...]
I have been on a quest to use up things. Now, I am a realist and I know it will be 2075 before I used up everything, but any step forward is a step forward…I liked this paper but didn’t love it. A white pen and mindless doodling brought it back to life. Since [...]
A long weekend in Phoenix at Creative Escape renewed my soul! The whole southwest vibe mixed with 2 visits to the spa, GREAT friends, and artistic scrapbooking fun made for a wonderful trip.

There was a terrible disease I had on vacation – shutterbug-itis. This meant I took photos of everything just to get a few incredible pictures. The results are some very mediocre photos. But the memories were fantastic. So I decided to play around with some of the blah prints. 1. Scratch lines around shapes in [...]
Have you ever felt overwhelmed by all you want to do? Feel like you don’t have time to finish a project? I have. Then I just need to remember that a step forward, no matter how small, is step forward! I tend to take lots of vacation photos (2,000-4,000) a trip. Not all of them [...]
Do you have any old scrapbooking papers that you may not love anymore or that you never did but they were part of a larger collection of papers? Well I do, actually quite a few. My style has changed over 10 years – no shock. I decided to experiment with them. Since I might never [...]
