Dream


Okay, I admit it. I'm into butterflies right now...especially this one. It's a nice image, don't you think? I created several of these for Hippieaud's SWAP.

The following image is almost exactly like the above, I only changed the back of the card and the placement of the die-cut leaves.



I had originally planned to do the second card for the swap, but it really was taking much too long to cut out all the little circles for the tree tops...so I changed my design a bit so I could get them postal.

It's raining here today again, but not as much as it was the days after I returned from my trip. The rain puts me in a rather mellow and tired mood sometimes - and sometimes pensive. Today would be one of those days.

I'm thinking of my acting friend, Jami, who is on the verge of passing into the next phase of her existence. Beyond life. It was reported to me yesterday that she probably won't make it through the week, which is extremely sad for her daughter. Tessa will lose her mother just before Mother's Day this year. If I could, I would say the following to my friend, Jami:

Jami, being your sister, Stella, in A Streetcar Named Desire [Tennessee Williams] was one of the highlights of acting. Remember your line as Blanche, "I don't want reality, I want magic"? I wish for some magic now. I wish for a reality that doesn't include you being whisked away from your family much too soon. Like Blanche, I desire an illusion that includes happier times for you and your family.

I will miss your glow and enthusiam. I will miss your big, wonderful brown eyes and curly brown hair. I will miss your robust spirit and nature. For now you must rest. May the angels bring you to a place where you will no longer experience pain. Only glory. Good-bye, my friend.

Inspirational Unity Blog Hop

I have three huge passions related to art: photography, jewelry making, and paper crafts. Above combines two of those passions: jewelry making and paper crafts. The necklace featured is a gift for a friend. I used Unity Stamp Company stamps in all the projects shown in the picture above. If you look closely, you'll even see that I used the Hawaiian Border and the swirls in the lambs fleece of Love Ewe to make the bronze charms in the jewelry above! Besides the stamps used, other materials included Bronz Clay, antiqued bronze findings, and various beads. Of course, what gift isn't complete without packaging? You can find the tutorial for the bag Here . Paper and cardstock, punches, and ribbon used are from Stampin Up! while the stamp used is from Unity's March Kit of the Month . People who know me know how I strive to use humor everyday...and especially to make light of otherwise stressful situations. So, my quote for the day has absolutely nothing to do w

Unity Blog Hop

My project today is a little mini album I put together to give to my daughter, who is exploring the possibility of traveling across America from Washington State to Delaware in July. I wanted to give her something to log and journal her adventures! I used stamps from Unity Stamp Company's June and November Kits of the Month for the cover. Inside the cover, I put a little note. She plans to hitch hike which is extremely bothersome to me. I want her to be safe! Maybe I'll suggest flying out and renting a car and doing a rode trip with her! That would curb my fears and will also be fun! The journal block comes from their September Kit . Unity Stamp Company is featuring a sale on their previous Kits! This is the time to get them if you don't have ENOUGH! See their sales here: Sales at Unity The inside pages were not made with a KOM stamp, but this stamp is cool all the same. I love this flower . It's big and has many uses! To start at the beginning of th

Growing in Unity - Day 5 {Be Your Own Beautiful}

Well, here we are, my last post for the week!  It's Friday, and I am happy to report that I survived my first 2013 work week (an entire three days, mind you) after my little break in December. I thought I would finish off the week with a bright and cheerful card. Because it's getting colder and colder, and this is how I'm choosing to fight off that chill (this and some hot yoga sessions at my local yoga center) ......oh, and delighting in the fact that after passing winter solstice, we are now seeing more daylight with each passing day! I'm going to slip this card in with my daughter's stuff (somehow) when I see her this weekend.  She is about to leave the country, spending the next several months abroad.  And if you remember, she did this a year or so ago.  It was difficult, because she is a bit of a nomad and off the grid when she's abroad (no phone/computer).  So, we don't talk as often as we do when she is "Home"....mostly whenever she i
