Just a short post

Hello out there. I know it's been awhile since there's been a new post. Sorry about that!

On January 2, 2016, I had a stroke. Yes, a stroke. I am working on writing the story and will put it here but I thought I should at least do a small update or now. I am home and doing remarkably well. I have had wonderful support and help.

Next week I'm planing on a crafty studio tour to be posted, so stay tuned :)

Pendants & Teeny Tiny Cross Stitching

I've been busily creating pendants for the shop as well as for a craft show on December 5th.

These little cross stitch cuties are less than an inch tall or wide :) They will be turned into pendants.

Craft Show Coming Up

December 5th is a busy craft show day in my area. I chose this one, though, because it's a 10-year running find raiser for Make A Wish foundation.
Come see me! I'll have my art along with great inexpensive gifts for Christmas.

I'm so excited to be a vendor at this craft show in Maumee. 

It's a fundraiser for Make a Wish Foundation,
 and this will be its 10th year! 

Please come visit me. 
I will have lots of art and jewelry, perfect for gift giving,
 at LOW prices!

A Little Bit of My Planner

This year's planner was in a sketch book, as was last year :) When I originally set this up, I had planned to have 2015 and 2016 in one book. I should've known better than that! Whatever empty sheets are left after the end of the year I will tear out. Not leaving good sketch book paper behind!

This was just an inexpensive book from Hobby Lobby.

In the very front is the entire year calendar, a gift from Disney Movie Club. I only had to trim the edges a little bit. It works perfectly.

Stampin  Up used to make a punch that works PERFECTLY for adding stuff to this book. You can see I add tags, Journaling spots, etc to it. I'm a list maker so this helps me out so much.

A Sketchy Morning

My husband has work training so I tagged along. Throughout the week I've worked on cross stitch projects (got one christmas gift finished!), but today I hot out my sketch book.

I did a little poking around Pinterest to find an image and this is what happened :)
This was done in a moleskine sketch book with a Pitt type pen, watercolors,  and a few intense pencils. I'd love your feedback!

Hello out there

Wow it's sure been a long time since I posted in this blog. I'm so sorry. I hope someone out there missed me!

I've been working on many things and went back to school. Right now school is kicking my butt! I still get my artsy crafty time, though. I've been doing some cross stitching the past few months. I thought I'd share some photos with you of projects I'm working on right now- both cross stitch and arty.
