Thanks for visiting!

Welcome! This is the place where I share my artsy and crafty projects. I am an evolving artist these days ... finding myself enjoying less of the cards and mini albums that I have made for years, and turning to art journaling and more artistic endeavors. I have always enjoyed some craft or other, and some of my earliest memories of my mother helping me make paper dolls and other crafts. I am now in my 60's and finding myself more passionately enjoying creating beautiful things and learning new skills and techniques and products.

While you are here I hope you will find inspiration and ideas for making your own projects, however any images or projects you find here are my personal property and should not be used for your own monetary gain, or for contests or challenges. Thank You!


New Layout and 'The Girls'!

Hi There - me again! I wanted to ask you to let me know what you think about my new layout. It's fall, and I wanted something sort of seasonal, and settled on this picture of a little wall hanging I made for our camper door a couple of years ago. It's a silk sunflower surrounded by leaves that are made from cardstock, cut freehand, inked and heat embossed.

I really like the lighter background and wider columns, too, so please leave a comment and let me know what you think.

Also, I've been asked about the 'pups', and actually they aren't pups at all, but grown ladies! They are also known as 'The Girls'. Bailey and Bessie are our precious mini-Dachshunds, although Bessie isn't so mini! She's quite the porker, lol! Here's a pic from this morning, but bear in mind that when Bailey is upset she pins her ears back, so you can tell she wasn't happy that I was taking her picture.

Bailey (the one on the left with her ears in hiding) is 5 y/o and Bessie is 3, and they are devoted to each other, and definite mama's girls. Right at this moment they are on their bed here in my office/studio/playroom, sighing contentedly from time to time because they are with me. They are my babies! They also just LOVE camping, and somehow intuitively know when we open the garage door and back the truck up to hook it up to the camper. It's weird how they just 'know'. You can ask Bailey if she wants to go camping and she will run down the hall to the garage door! I think they just love it that the 4 of us are all together in a small space and they get great long walks with my hubby.

Enough gushing over the dogs! Hope you like the new look, and I'd love your feedback - bad or good! Blessings friends, Becky

I love the new layout and the title photo is amazing! Your girls are adorable, too. Our little shih tzus loved to go camping, too, but we don't have the trailer any more. Living in the country is almost like camping after living in the big city! I'm looking forward to the autumn here and it looks like it will be a gorgeous one. Enjoy your camping trip!
