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!


Unscripted Sketches # 119 - Praise The Lord!

Usually, when making a card that's not specifically for someone at the time, I try to imagine what circumstances that card could be used for.  That's what I did when I made the card for this week's Unscripted Sketches challenge.  The image (found at Graphics Fairy) shows a butterfly in different stages of metamorphosis from a caterpillar, chrysalis, to a mature butterfly.  And my sentiment is 'Praise The Lord!' . . . how many times have you known someone who was going through changes, struggling with a decision, or just maturing into the person God wants them to be?  I can think of many times, and I think this would be an amazing card for someone who has just reached a decision or gotten a new job, or any number of situations.  And I really LOVE this card!!!  Here is this week's sketch . . .

And here is my card based on the sketch . . .
