I thought I should show my Halloween ATC cards before Halloween gets here...
kind of muted colors - but after all it is Halloween - lol!
I like this one - love the bats and the pumpkin tree - just fun!!!
Of course - this is my entry for
CED today!
Starting November 1st The annual
Art Everyday Month will start - I hope to participate
as much as the inspiration leads me.

If you want the lowdown on AEDM - just click.
Thanks for stopping by and Looking - Peace!!

Yes - another ATC creation. I like this, tho I am so not a fan of green (everything in our house growing up was in green - UGH!!) but I like the greens in this.
The dark side lady looks like she is just floating in for the moment - kind of halloweenish.

This is my entry today for CED...
Still working on the hibiscus digital painting - it is just not moving along for me - I have no idea
why because I have done many paintings and none have taken this long...geez!!
At least I am still creating - so this is a very good thing...it is all coming along slowly but surely!
Thanks for stopping by and Looking.... PEACE!!

Here is another ATC I had created during my break. Again kind of simple but I like
the pinks in it - (I am a big fan of pink).
I also love the little fairy in it - too cute!

This is my entry for CED for today! I am still working on the same digital painting
I have been doing since September but for me it just is not moving fast enough for me!
Hopefully I can get that done soon so I can move along to another one!
How is your creativity going??
Thanks for stopping by and looking!

Just thought I would show you all another ATC I had completed...I so love the lil girl in it. Now I really like the way this one turned out - love the happy colors in it...lol. Of course this is my entry today for CED...love being creative!

Have been still doing some major surfing. Just looking for inspiration and ideas and such... I seem to be on a kick about it lately. Have found tons of stuff on halloween.... SPIDER CRAFTS. The site is from Better Homes and Garden - you can just surf away at their site.. but the link above is a good place to start!

Any one else have any craft projects to share - let me know - if you leave a link - I will share it here if you want! Well - Thanks for stopping by and looking!

I thought I would list another craft idea - we used to do this craft at my daycare with the
kids - for Mother's Day...very easy...we used rose colored cellophane so that the kisses really
did look like roses...yellow or red are best - white does not look as good (at least to me)...
Give it a try -

Candy Kiss Roses

For each flower:
2 kisses
1 square colored plastic wrap/cellophane
Floral tape

Put the two kisses together with flat bottoms touching. Put tip of one kiss in the center of the square of wrap and pull wrap down around the kisses. Put a wire up next to the kisses. Pull the wrap down over part of the wire and wrap floral tape around starting at the tip of the bottom kiss. Tape securely. Once you make the first one or two and get the technique down they go very quickly. These make a wonderful bouquet.
**side note** the square of wrap/cellophane has to be big enough so that when you cover both kisses it covers them entirely -

I am hoping to take some pics of life around the ol' homestead - but convincing my head of doing that seems to be a major undertaking -
enjoy the craft and have a great weekend!!!
Thanks for stopping by and looking - PEACE~!~

This is one of the ATC cards I created a while back - just trying to play without any stress or obligation sort of speak.
Kind of simple but to be honest - sometimes I really like simple.
Right now I am digitally painting another beautiful flower but it seems to be going very slow - so I had to walk away from it for a while before I get frustrated.
I think I have definitely discovered that I always need instant gratification and results when I create or play in creating...well that is a good step forward.
I think that is why I love my digital camera - instant results - instead of having to wait to see what the pictures might look like....I guess I have no patience that way.
What has creating helped you discover about yourself?
I will definitely include the above in my entry to today's CED ... it is always good to create!
What are you all creating?
Well Thanks for stopping by and Looking!!!

During my internet surfing I came across this craft project that I thought
was just way too cute and you do not have to dye the trees in the colors of Halloween only - you really could get creative with other colors for other occasions or to make the color of
any room decor - just too much fun - so check it out for yourself... HALLOWEEN TREES.

The morning has started off rainy - hopefully it will dry up later and we can enjoy the cooler weather that has hit the sunshine state - when temps do not go above 85 degrees this time of year - that is cool - that is wonderful!!!
I have discovered that the scrapbooking program that I use is not compatible with Vista..GEEZ!
So my question is does anyone use a scrapbooking program that is compatible with Vista? - I have no idea what I am going to do because now all my pages I have done - about 50-60 of them cannot be printed because there is no program that reads the format - geez - I am not happy!

Well I think that is it for now - Thanks So Much For Stopping By And Looking!!
See ya next time!

I have been spending my days with mega-surfing....finding things that are inspirational, topics that interest me, ideas for things to do etc...before I know it - hours have flown by - this really is a good thing. It has kept my mind busy (which is my first priority) and makes me feel like I am doing something good...moving forward.

I also have been busy creating my new blogs since AOL gave all their customers the boot..so I am trying to find peeps that I used to be in touch with at AOL...that is coming along well, I think.
Also in between - I am still creating my digital ATC cards...that keeps my muse happy.
So the love bunny above is my next extry for CED...I think it is cute - simple but cute!
Now this blog is NOT going anywhere - I am still using it for my art - my creativeness..but my everyday life blog and my inspirational share blog have now officially moved to blogger.
So again - in case I have missed anyone...Here are my new blogs:
THE CRAZY LIFE ....... my everyday life blog - get to know me, my family and my crazy life even better ...you never know what I might say....LOL
ANGELS TOUCH MY HEART ........ This is where I share inspirational quotes, poems, stories that have been sent to me, or that I have come across during my travels through the internet.. If you have something inspirational you would like to share - please feel free to send it to me...

Okay - remember if you take pics of those beautiful fall colors coming alive - send me them or share them in your blogs - I am thirsty for them (does that make sense). For some reason - truly my soul is longing for them...

Thanks For Stopping By and Looking ...... PEACE~!~
