Hello everyone

Just wanted to check in and let everyone know that I am busy trying to organize my studio so that I can start working on some new projects with some new techniques.  Just watched a C&T Publishing show demoing the use of colored pencils on cloth.   The instructor used pencils  by Inktense; which I was unable to find in 3 different art and craft stores.  So I am going out on a limb and trying a colored pencil made by Kimberly.

Hope you all are having a very great Thursday!

As mentioned yesterday the sun is not here. So glad I enjoyed yesterday's sunshine; however really did not learn much on the camera. :(   Hope you all had a great Tuesday, and have a productive "hump day".  I am off for some medical attention and some chores and then back to designing some jewelry.

Happy Tuesday

Well the sun is shining finally here in WA state so sitting in my craft room seems a little out of sorts at this moment in time.  Never know when the sun will re-appear...think I might go and take a walk at the park and teach myself  the in and outs of this new camera :0)  Have a great day and be blessed.

Crazy Monday Morning :)

Thank you everyone for visiting my blog this weekend.  I so enjoyed reading all the great reviews.  Being a newbie at this blog thing as well as blog hopping it was very encouraging to see all that attended.  I am sure you saw some great and wonderful ideas along the way :)

I am off the "wash that gray right out of my hair" or something like that :)  Those of you in my age bracket (but we are not really addressing that are we?) will remember the ad. As a child I often wondered how you had gray to start with and how in the world did you wash it away...Darn why did I every wonder????LOL

Have a great Monday and make some noise for all the great people that help make this first ever blog a great success...clap, clap, clap.

Hope to see you soon......hugs
