Looking Forward

Hello everyone!   I've been spending the wee hours of the morning doing a bit of online shopping.  I don't usually get out much to go to the local craft stores...probably will go around or just before the Christmas season to see what they have to offer.   Anyway.. before I get too carried away... the store I tried this time around is https://www.facebook.com/groups/lighthousestopnshop/.   A friend of mine told me of the beautiful lace they have to offer...so I couldn't resist. ;)    And speaking of lace.... I have a stash of my own stuff... that I can never seem to find when I'm crafting.   So, I am trying to do my best to get a little more organized.  Wow what a job! ;)    

Here's what I've done so far with the ribbons for easier access - 
Just put those all in one tote.  


And this is what's left to go through.    This will take some time...but it will be worth it.

We are looking forward to our upcoming August 15th Challenge - Are you ready??    

You have to be a follower to enter in the challenges.   We are a family friendly challenge blog, so nothing spooky, scary or otherwise.    Please see our Rules page to find out.   

Before I even think of getting into these messy bins,  I'll be checking in with the sandman.   Good night!   Oops, it's morning folks... either way, have a wonderful day!

Mary

Encouragement from the Heart

From my heart to yours...

Psalms 29:11- "The Lord will give strength unto his people; the Lord will bless his people with peace."



June is about here... and something just for you

I am posting again after a long absence.   Since the other post was a bit gruff sounding, as if I was totally fed up with blogger....and I was at the time, and still am to a certain degree.    Before all the happenings around our house, I was in the process of getting everything changed over... but at this moment... I feel that I'm in a holding pattern so to speak.  Which simply means that I will wait until I'm fully sure that I will be making that trek to a new "blog home".    I just want my followers and visitors to know that I did not jump ship.  I would not do that.... I would let you know should the ship be sinking... and currently the ship is sailing just fine.
  
This next paragraph is totally off the subject... just didn't want the reader to become confused.**


  To make a clearer statement... After we returned from a very relaxing trip we came home to find that our washing machine decided to fail, turning my entire load of laundry into a greasy speckled up mess!   Which made me wish I'd never put in such a big load.  I couldn't understand what was happening.  But after my husband took apart the agitator he showed me where the grease was coming from.... grease in a washing machine?!?!   You've got to be kidding me. I freaked out.   Now what in the wide world of sports was I going to do to get the grease out of the wet clothing.  I called my mother (I was still in the freak out stage), and asked if I could bring my soggy soiled clothes over to her place to see what we could do.  Of course that was not a problem.  My mother's wisdom proved to be very helpful.   After a couple of thorough washings and a good dose of Oxy Clean got those clothes bright and white.   No stains were left behind. Yahoo!     After that mess it was time to buy a new washer.     BTW the new washer works great... I love it. ♥     Okay... getting back to the first night of our coming home from the trip... we then realized that the central air conditioning decided to give up the ghost as well...  just what we needed.   I was beginning to think that our house had turned against us.   Fun.   Thankfully, the weather hadn't turned too hot... not yet anyway... and we could enjoy having the windows open.     I don't know about you, but, I can only handle humid weather for so long...  we went about a month with no central air.    And just recently got the air conditioner fixed.  Thankfully for free!   I'm telling you this because I am grateful. And so relieved.


♥♥And here's another statement I would like to make.  For those of you that are looking for a good deal.  I am having a sale.  Go to my Etsy Shop Createful Heart Digis   Where you'll find a really good deal.. at least we think so... starting today through June 30th... with your purchase of 2 images you'll get a 3rd image free.   Its a great way to get to know our store.  ♥♥  

Thanks for coming by.... leave a little comment love while your here.... and don't forget to check out the sale.♥♥

Hugs, Mary ♥

Victorian Lady *Update*

I think this turned out pretty well... had to think what would work for this Victorian lady.   This time I cut the image out.   Colored in with Prisma watercolor pencils.   Added a pink and teal flower (that I made).    It would have taken me a month to look through my entire lace and ribbon collection.. so I settled on this white ribbon with lace.   Let me know what you think.   Honestly, I feel that I do a better job with creating drawings and digital artworks.   Sometimes I don't feel that I do a very good job in creating pretty cards.  But at least I do try.   I'll give myself a pat on the back. :)
Here's the picture:   

And here's another angle to see the face more clearly.  ta-da!
Now, I didn't realize how small the printing of the picture would be so... it took some careful attention to detail to make sure I colored in the eyes just right.   And still, it looks like I could have done just a tad bit better.    Well anyway... these are just samples of what can be created with the Victorian women digital images that are in the shop.

If you were on my blog earlier you probably noticed a blurb about a challenge that I was having well that has been closed.  Due to the fact that one must pay for the service.   So sorry.   If you would still be interested in showing me your cards that you've made using any of our images then you may do so.   Just send to me a link to your blog and I will be more than happy to check it out. 

But as an added reminder I am having a Digi Sale going on through March 22, 2017... the coupon code is Spring.    As always, I am happy to have followers join my blog.  And this is just an added bonus.

Thanks for understanding....

What a processor can do....

When the old computer decided to kick the bucket... hubby thought I could possibly have fun creating with the processor.  Hmmm...  so, I just happened to have just the right size block for it.   


And this is what a processor creates....
Lots of tiny background dots.
