What People Are Saying:
Christy Sobolewski (Gulfsprite) says: "I have to tell you, your positivity posts on your blog have really helped me to stay the course & remember my priorities & what I want from life (which is to be positive & choose to be happy}. It works, which I never would have believed if I had not tried it myself! Suzanne McRae says: "I just love how you shine your light for others, by teaching where you have come from and how from that place that has no doubt been quite challenging. You have created and continue to create the kingdom that you are in now which is shining brightly with all that you do and it especially shines through in all that you are! You are a GOLD STAR and a vision of SUCCESS in my books! Thank you for sharing so well with all of us. xo"

First in a new series for Tuesday – Cardology Tuesday!
Since I am always making cards, I thought I would give you a peek each Tuesday at a card I have made – for YOUR INSPIRATION.
The first card for Cardology Tuesday is a Pocket Card, made with the Envelope Punch Board.
The pocket part of this card is made using an old sheet of Sunny Paisley scrapbook paper from Chatterbox. The pocket size is 3 X 5 inches. Once making the envelope on the Envelope punch board, I snipped off the one end.
The blue wood grain paper is old also, but no information left on it as I had used part of it already.
I used one of my corner rounder punches to make the scallop at the top of the orange cardstock on the front of the pocket. The doily is vintage.
The leaves under the paper flowers are hand-cut and then scored.
The pocket tag is made from Whisper White Stampin’ Up cardstock, the front is covered with more of the blue woodgrain and a strip of the Paisley.
The heart at the top of the pocket tag is cut from a textured wallpaper sample and backed with cardstock for stability & so its able to be pulled on. The little orange heart was punched from the Paisley paper & then coated with Crystal Effects.
Hope you enjoyed seeing this card and will come back each Tuesday for another card that I hope will inspire you to make one of your own or similar.
Coloured tissue squares were calling my name this past week!
I had bought a package of pre-cut tissue squares at the dollar store and used them once in the past year….
What to do, what to do! Tissue Collage Backgrounds!!!
For today’s Make It Monday video #6, I created a Tissue Collaged Background , I used it on a card, but it could be used for a Mixed Media Canvas or an Art Journal page or ??? You try it and go with it and I would LOVE to see what you do with it.
If you are unable to view the embedded video below, you can see it HERE.
I’m coming clean & going to be vulnerable here!
Why haven’t I blogged as consistently as usual, or sent out an e-zine or posted on social media?
I am human and am not perfect! Life is not always easy or effortless (my word of the year).
I am trying very hard to stay in a positive mindset everyday. Its taking more energy lately. Lots of journaling happening so I can clear my head every so often. Somedays I just want to be somewhere else where I can do whatever I want!
I have elders in my life. They, at various times have my attention, and one of them is needing my constant encouragement right now.
I have a business that involves coaching others, & teaching others and making artwork for possible sale and everyday, its taking my leftover energy to keep that alive. I LOVE my work and feel its what inspires me everyday. It happens to also pay the bills!
I have had to say NO to a few things that would have been AWESOME experiences. I need to be able to BREATHE!
I am working on more workshops & programs at a slower than usual pace while also doing more writing and editing of my book – I want to be in that positive mindset when working on them and that sometimes is hard.
I am trying to give 110% in everything but sometimes I feel you are not getting the value you are used to….
It may seem like I am not very attentive or aware – I am here and see/read when I can.
I am hoping a situation will change, it seems to be ready to move into a different mode at any minute. Even as I write this, I feel that change is imminent.
I am writing this not for sympathy or pity, I just want to make you aware and I truly do promise to be back to giving you the value you deserve soon.
Bare with me please and know that I treasure each of you!!!
I just want to say “Take action even its imperfect!”
