I just can't stop with these!! They are so much fun to make and so neat to add to cards, gift boxes and anything...
Hi Everyone...i just added two new designs to my sticker line called "Sweet Treats" I love these stickers...I have to say the the ones with my "Sweet Cuppie" family are so sweet too....I added a few to a section in my Shop on-line so I can get them to anyone in the world...not just the people in my small town shops.....
The best way to get a message across is to go by word of mouth...personal experiences....and I was happy when one day U-printing came to me to help host wonderful giveaways of their products....they are a very friendly company that works on quality customer service. I love hosting giveaways with U-Printing and sending out postcards, canvas prints and business cards to winners ...this way you get to see how the company works and also gets you to see the actual product.....If you have a blog you can also get into a Sponsorship Program with U-printing.com...you will also be getting some great giveaways...they always do some fun things to get you some products....so what are you waiting for!!!

I created a piece for the IF Prompt this week...."Drifting" .....at first I was going to do something sad....but then I found some comfort in my sketchbook and my ink...and created my flying chickens....everyone knew chickens couldn't fly....but Randy Rooster wanted the new hens to know that anything is possible if you Believe....so he got them all hooked into their parachutes and they were "Drifting" all day....and now that they believed anything was possible Randy's job was done.....
Have faith in your dreams and always know that there may be a way to do what you want to do....you just have to take a chance and believe.....
I will pop by and see you all soon!!! thank you again for your support!

It makes you really realize what a gift each and every day is...and how we should never take anything for granted....I mean anything.....So do me a favor and remember this and take time each day to do the right thing ...to call your family....to tell them how much they mean to you....to share in life ......we all think that things can never happen to us....but the truth is anything can happen at any time....and you can never ever be prepared ....so you just have to live and cherish each moment....I haven't created anything new yet today...so I added a picture my Mom made me when I was a wee little girl...she said the angel watched over us...(my brother and I) and now this angel sits in our sons room watching over him.....and I know that an angel is with our nephew and his family today and always.....
Paris is called the "city of lights' because it is the most- lit city in the world.
In 1828, Paris was the first city in Europe to use gas lamps. It used gas lamps to light the Champs De Elysees......having all these lights earned it the nickname La Ville Lumiere....The City of Lights.....pretty neat!!! I know whenever I hear Paris my eyes light up!!!
I am having so much fun with Wednesdays in Paris....and this week's watercolour is inspired by the Eiffel Tower.....It is created with 140 lb watercolour paper, liquid watercolour paints, ink and metallic liquid acrylics....It is inspired by Spring in Paris....and I hope you enjoy it!
It is also available in my Etsy Shop....

We had the most wonderful Saturday....it was filled with quality time ...just the three of us...from a day at the beach to some shopping to a wonderful dinner out....and then some fun rides in the field....
Well when we were at the beach I found so many amazing rocks...it was so neat....and I sat there and looked for my sketchbook and my pens....then I found that I had left it home...(which I never do) so I decided to draw on the rocks....and here are some of my fun rock sketches.....I also took a big bag of rocks home for more sketching....
So what do you do when you forget your sketchbook?
