rose is coming!

So , if you have been with me long, you know my bff rose is a majorly special person in my life. My Hubby, Nick, is going to Oklahoma to see his daughter and he will be gone a whole week. So, Rose is coming to stay with me. We are going to go shopping tomorrow and then play for the whole week! I am so excited about it!

However, since I am leaving very early to go get her, I thought I would post  the Friday freebie today... It is in honor of my Native American Heritage...

Hand Dyed Doilies

Wow I am so excited to say that my hand dyed doilies are now for sale on Ebay and will soon be on etsy as well.
I figured out a way to make them not bleed when used in mixed media projects. They are not foodsafe, though and should only be used for decoration or artistic endeavors!

 I am in the process of refining some of the digis I made, so if there any you guys have liked in concept but thought could use some work, leave me a comment and I will be sure to fix them.

Dad had his voice box removed yesterday and is resting in the hospital. My daughter is looking more and more pregnant everyday. She shows like she is four or five months, but is only 8 weeks. We have been assured there is only one baby in there!

I am finishing up the editing on my next two videos and will have them posted to You Tube tomorrow.
I added a you tube button on the side of the blog here so you guys could go to the videos right from here. Also, if you become a follower of my you tube channel you will receive notifications when I post new stuff.

Thank to those of you who have gone over to dreamy memories on etsy to take a look!

Howdy!

Well, dad does have to have his voice box removed as it turns out. Hopefully that will get rid of the cancer for good.

Nick and I are doing well. I am feeling a lot beter these days except for the hip issue, but that is just something I live with.

I am so excited to say that I am going to be a Grandmother!my daughter is due in January and the only thing that sucks is that she lives on the opposite side of the country than me. We talk on the phone or Skype almost daily, though and that helps.

I have been looking at my old digis and realized that they are mostly in need of fixing. The lines are too squiggly or too thin etc.  I want to use my new drawing program to redo them, but I have a bunch of other stuff going on too. I am still designing and selling my stencils, designing counted cross stitch patterns for our business (Dreamy memories) and doing art journaling and other crafty projects. I am currently working on another mannequin. I want to make a few wall hangings that have been floating around in my brain. The yard work still has to be done.... And then there is the Ladies auxiliary at church. Oh, and last but not least- Nick and I are having our marriage consecrated in the church (renewing our vows) on Monday...

Whew it makes me tired just typing it all... Who knew I would be so busy after I became disabled to work?

I will really make more of an effort to come and post more regularly...and if I get the didgs done will post them here...and who knows, maybe I will get inspired to make some more!

ARTIST

Being an artist is more a state of mind I think.  For a very long time I used to say that I was not an artist, then I was published in some magazines and began to sell some of my stuff. When people began referring to me as an artist, I began to own it. There may be tons of people who are "more" talented or skillful than myself, but what I do has merit just the same. And what you do in your world has merit too. If you tell yourself that you are not an artist, then you are not. If you accept that you have the heart and soul of an artist- then that is who you are and will continue to evolve and grow into.

If Jackson Pollock can make "paintings" of paint splatters and become famous for it- you and I are at least as good as him!

Have faith in the process and in yourself. Own your creativity and artistic self....have a great day
