About Me

My photo

Well, I can't really tell you allllll about me! LOL. But I can tell you that I'm a wife, mother, grandmother, aunt, cousin, and Christian. And I love scrapbooking, card making, painting, and altered art.  I love to coordinate parties with themes and come up with new ways to incorporate paper art into them.   I enjoy working with my hands and making something out of nothing.  It's such a wonderful thing to know that there are so many beautiful women out there who share the same passion for this hobby....ART! that I do. I draw inspiration from everything around me and from people like you! So, let's get scrappin'!

Sketches 2014

Hi all:
I'm always so excited when I can sit still long enough to post to my blog.  I neglect it so much for weeks at a time.  Not because I want to, but because there's so many other things that I need to take care of.

Like still trying to get my space in some kind of order.  Granted, it is absolutely nothing to look at, but I'm trying to have a space for everything.  And if I can't and I can do without it, I'll be donating it to somewhere, somebody, some time very soon.

So, what have I been doing crafty?

Well, if I'm not doing a page in my art journal, I'm working on sketches.  It's something that I've been doing for a long time.  Never have I said that I was a sketch artist.  But I think with each time; I get better.  I keep trying my hand at actually painting the sketches, but I never really learned how to do "shading for skin tones." So I find that I really like how my sketches come out, so why "mess them up trying to paint them?" And so I just don't.  Remember the song "I love you just the way you are"?  That's how I've been feeling.

I've been sketching like crazy.  Anywhere, everywhere.  People who are interested in what I do are always asking me "who" the sketches are of?  And I have to say "who does it look like?" Because I'm not that good! They're from my imagination.  Don't get me wrong, I get "inspired" by someone that I've seen or crossed paths with, but they're really no one in particular. And if they look like someone you know, then that's great, it means that I'm getting better at it!

These are some of those pages in my sketch book

I have a lot of pages to post.  But it's hard photographing sketches. I'm no expert...teehee!
But they'll show up really soon.....

Thanks for dropping by. Please come again!

Your drawings are so fun. They do not need to be perfect to express yourself
