Hi everyone! Just a quick note to say yes I am still here. I've been super busy creating. Here is a little of what I've been up to...

Dresser that my neighbors threw out and I dragged into my back yard.

So far this is what I've made with the dresser. 3 planter drawers to go with the painted planters I made last year.

Stay tuned to see what else I make from the dresser… more fun stuff to come!

Long time no write!

Things are finally getting back to a place where I can focus on my art, and catch back up with all my blogger friends. I have missed you all and am looking forward to seeing what everyone has been up to.

As part of my getting back into the swing of things I decided my mannequin needed a make over.

I am really happy with how she turned out, and she is ready to wear all the new fun jewelry I have planned to make!

Since I last posted I also had to say good bye to my snuggle love kitty Jasmine as she took ill with cancer that had spread and wasn't treatable and 5 days after her death  Tyler (the last of my three labs) had a heart attack and passed away.  Needless to say it all left me absolutely heart broken.

I do have a new member of the family, and her name is Jazlynn named after my Jasmine Kitty. She is crazy high energy and already thinks she runs things.

This is Jazzi doing what I call her road runner impersonation Jazzi Roadrunner

I haven't had a great deal of time to create this past year; however I have lots and lots of fun ideas in my head and I'm eager to start creating again. 

I'm looking forward to catching up with everyone and getting back doing the things I love :)

Thanks for stopping by! Hope you have a wonderfully creative day!

while i was away...

Hi everyone!! Yep, I'm still here :) Life has been ..well... like life gets. So sorry for the absence. I did want to stop in and say HELLO! Missed everyone so much! And to let you know what I've been up to.

Other then just getting by day to day with life's little obstacles...I have also been creating. Not jewelry this time... I've taken my beading into a little different direction. Some place I never dreamed of going, but am so very glad I have.

I have ventured into doll repaints. What is a doll repaint? That's what I asked too the first time I heard it. Essentially you take a doll, strip her down to her base, remove her factory makeup, and if you would like.. remove her factory hair, eyes, what ever you want. And then you begin to recreate her.

That is what I did here. I took a liv doll. Removed her make up, removed her eyes, her hair. And replaced her eyes with new ones, changed out her hair and curled and styled a new do for her. Gave her honey bee wings, and an outfit completely created by hand.

And it was so so much fun! I've always had a love for fairies, so it really was so much fun to create my very own!  I'm excited to create more and will be sure to share them as I do!

Again, so sorry for the absence and do hope to get to spend more time here as things settle down.

Much Love!
