Sunday Night - Tarot pre-read - update - no edit magick!

Wednesday, July 19, 2017


Man you guys, it has been forever since I blogged! I really miss it, but my job had really kept me so tired and stressed I could not make it work for me. I was working 50-60 hours a week from October to April. Finally I moved into a new job position which as left me not working so much and more time to devote to what I love. CREATING!

I have been slowly able to re-group my energy levels to get back to sewing, journal making, painting and digital art work. There is still farther to go though, as with all things.

I took some time this week  to update my blog look, as  you can see, still not 100 percent happy with it,but I do love galaxies! I have been working on my website and really want it to mesh with my website more, color wise etc, so at this point I am not sure if I want to spend more time redoing my website or not. I need to just get it live, because now it sees no traffic, which is not good for my overall goals. not sure it really matters if a blog looks like a website, but cohesiveness does help.

I am working on many upcoming projects that are exciting and I cannot wait to share with you! A giveaway, some new YouTube videos coming soon, the new website and more!

I would also love to hear about what you would like to see, or have missed seeing?

Hot Potato!

It has been a hot, hot month so far you guys, but I am pretty pasty and allergic to the sun and well love air conditioning! BUT still it has been hot, I guess really more humid. Here in Tennessee, the humidity is horrible! I have also had a super busy few months. June was a wedding and worked a bit extra month. And May was pretty much work and I also had this horrible stomach bug that lasted for 36-ish hours, man I have not been that sick for like 12 years. Then I did not eat for 5 days, which is insane, but I could not.

So enough with all that. But it is still early June, so not all the way through yet. But I work all this weekend and then next week I have a three day weekend but then it goes right into the next weekend which is July 4th weekend and I work all that plus July 4th.

I wanted to stop by though and say HI! As I never do enough! Hope you guys are all staying cool! And I will have some new project shares in July. And I am going to start working on a e-course for journal making, let me know what else you guys might want to see either in e-course or on some YouTube tutorials.

Art Card - back - perfectly me

I created an art card for an art deck project recently and thought I would share the back of it for you guys to see. Finished size is 3.5 x 3.5.  I used a gelli print I had and then just wrote my information on the back with some gel pens, a few simple inspiring words, added a bit of shine around the edge with  Inka Gold and voila, I love it. Nothing fancy, but perfect.

Don't be intimidated and go make something one of a kind and perfectly you today!

What to do when you do not know what to do?

Just seeking some solice from my current mind, the decisions that sometimes have to be made that are so tough and life changing, scary they can be. How do you guys weigh things and figure out how to make major decisions? Pros and Cons, or other ways, talking about them etc?

Repurposed Frame - Inkling

For 2016 I purchased an Inkwell Press planner. If you wish for more information on that please visit their website at Inkwell Press or do a search on YouTube and you will find lots of reviews and videos. The planner world is huge and full of options that I will not get into on this post. :)

So what is this post about??? When you receive your planner you also get an inkling, which is a quote for you. Packed randomly, yet they always seem to get to who they need to. Mine is "follow your arrow". Below is a picture of how I currently am keeping it. Framed in a frame I got from the reuse place for under $2.00. Not 100 percent happy with it as I think the word dreams distracts from it, but happy enough with it until I find a different frame.

Game Dice Embroidered Bag

Urban Threads designs online is  a great resource for creative, modern, funky, vintage...pretty much all kinds of embroidery designs, I love them. Not only do they have great designs and tutorials and freebies, they have awesome customer service! I recently ordered a set of cute small designs, 4x4 inch designs, here is a link to the designs I got.

I decided to make a dice bag as I did need one and they had a tutorial that I figured I would try. A few things I discovered as I went along. I suck at cutting circles and I should always measure for my liking even if it is different from what they are saying in the tutorial. The tutorial is  well laid out and fairly easy to follow. I have experience sewing though so for those who are beginners, make sure you read all the way through it once or twice before you start. The end product is OK, but I do plan to make another as there really is not enough room at the top for the cord and then to leave a nice looking top scrunched up. You will see what I mean in the pictures below. When making it I thought it might not be, but I continued to follow the measurements in the tutorial. You could also place the design lower to make up for that but next time I will just add to the top, that way there is more room for error with the design and top area.

Thread used were Sulky 40 wt rayon (light to dark) 1121, 1109, 1192 and Poly-lite 1195 in my bobbin.
