New websites for my Art

Hi everyone!

Just updating you with new websites for my art.


and at


I have been very pleased with both companies and their high quality products and service.

On FineArt America, I had one picture that the resolution was not high enough for the size print I wanted. They immediately sent me an email telling me of the problem and had a solution that would change the picture to almost a watercolor type print. I loved it so much we went with it and was very pleased with the results.

And on Instacanvas they have prints, canvas and prims. Prims are 1-thick acrylic photo glass that look great on an office desk...bought one from my desk!!

Here is a picture of my creative space and I put up a couple of their products on my wall. I am loving my space.

Go visit these websites, I think you will be very pleased.    The Joker Print

Friday the 13th

Apparently, you cannot complain of your chest while being in the Doctor’s office. 

At the Doctor's office I had an irregular heart beat - throwing PVC's, 
which is normal for me....and my chest felt tight (allergies, but who believes me, lol). 
They ran and EKG and the Doctor called 911, (protocol) made me take an aspirin and nitro glycerin. (didn't want to because I know its allergies, lol) 
By the time the paramedics got there I was crashing because the nitro caused my blood pressure to go to low. I got to ride in a cool RED paramedic ambulance with the siren blaring. 
Wow, was that paramedic or doctor cute!!! 
Got to the ER and hooked me up to the EKG and just laid there waiting to see the doctor. 
I was FREEZING while I was waiting so my sweet husband put on these cool periwinkle gloves on my feet to help keep me warm. 
We were both laughing, they were really good slippers and kept my toes toasty. 

The nurse’s finally came in to tell me they were going to run blood work and CT.  
I guess it made their night and all of them came in to see my feet and were laughing. 
(They did give me real socks after they were done laughing.) 
Hours later, all the test came back normal but I could have told them that!!
The nurse unhooked me from the EKG and O2 said she would not look if we needed to take more of those gloves 
As we were leaving everyone was waving and saying good bye to us. 
I think we were the only FUN people they had that evening. My honey and I had a fun date on Friday the 13th!! 
(I TOLD them it was allergies!!! lol)

Paper mache and scrapbook paper

Sorry about the picture, all I had was my phone camera to take the picture. Can you see the Easter basket in the back ground??

This is a quick craft project I made up for my grand daughter using paper-mache letters, scrapbook paper and ribbon and lots of Mod Podge.  As you can see the last two "E's" I was still working on when I took this picture. I used Fabri-Tac to put the ribbon on, holds so good. The front of the letters are metallic paper and the ribbon I used are glittery too. Perfect for a little girls room, don't you think!!!!

Up-cycle a used book to scrapbook or genealogy book

I just love this idea of recycling an old book

and make it into a scrapbook like this

I have been scanning old pictures with my FlipPal scanner of family members and I think what I am going to do next is make it into a genealogy scrapbook. I have all sorts of ideas running through my head right now.  Can you imagine all those great black and white photos!!

Go visit JANET HOPKINS blog to see the instructions on how to "up-cycle" an old book to a scrapbook.

Can you feel's in the air!!!

We can all feel it—spring is just around the corner, literally. 

We’ve sprung ahead and adjusted our clocks and feel some spring-cleaning may be in our near future. Perhaps a little bird is harkening a call you to action to scan those boxes of precious family photos to pass on to future generations. With the new Flip-pal mobile scanner, you can scan while sitting at the car dealer waiting for my vehicle to be serviced, on the couch with your family who are all doing their own thing or at your favorite Aunt’s kitchen table. 

To get you going Flip-Pal is offering you 2 coupon to help you get started on your projects.
