My son Wesley and his wife Sandy are going to have a baby! It will be the first grand baby in our family! Sandy has 2 sisters and one has a baby boy, and one is pregnant with a baby boy, and I have made them little baby journals for Sandy to give to them to document their pregnancies. So I thought I would make one for Sandy as well! These are so fun for me to make. I love making little Comp book journals for every occasion! So check back at the end of the year and see pictures of our new grand baby!!! Thanks for stopping by!
New fun Journal I made up out of the 75 cent paper pack from kaiser kraft. I love transforming the comp books into pretty fun journals. I added a ribbon tie, and 8 tabs down the side ready to be labeled.
I made up this small 3.5x5x5 mini paper bag album also out of the kaiser kraft paper. Great for an anniversary or wedding gift. U&Me!
picture placement on the left, and journaling tag in a pocket on the right!
lots of glitter glue and embelishments...journaling page on the right, picture placement on the left.
A picture will fit in under the little tab and behind the butterfly garland. a pocket page on the right with an embellished journaling tag.
Another picture can be placed behind the butterfly tab, and long stip at the end. Nice embellished journaling tag sewn on the next page.
pull out journaling tag with a spot to even write above the "always' tag. Photo placement on the right.

made these 2 baby journals for my great neices. Will be fun for them to have when they grow up. Made them out of Comp Journals. Covered with scrapbook papers, added some flowers, ribbon, and stickers for their names. printed off a cute image I purchased from Saturated Canary Digital stamps. Coloring them with my Promakers. I made tabs on the side so they can be divided for pictures, cute things they say, etc...These are so fun to make and so affordable.

It's been a busy couple months! I have been painting away getting ready for the Art Walk here in town. I have painted 16 paintings in that time! I have 3 sold already, so that is a good thing. My paintings are mostly about being encouraging, being an inspriation, freedom, and most of all being a witness for God.
This is a big step for me today. Its the first time I am putting myself out there with my paintings. I have sold my paper crafts for years, but not really in public, mostly online. So this is different...its really a personal thing. You put your heart out there on the canvas..and you hope that people will accept it..will like it...so I guess I'm waiting for that Sally Field moment...." you like me...you really like me!" lol Actually it's been through all this, that I have learned , I really need to not worry what others think of me or my art..I am proud of it, It is me...like it/me or not. I like it...I like me. I had take a moment during the process and stop painting for what i thought others would like. I had to paint with my heart, with what I had in me for me. And then it made the process alot easier. If you paint for others, you will be stiffled...if you paint for you...freedom comes and things just flow.
Here are the paintings I will be showing on today! All are for sale..except the ones that are marked sold.
This painting is SOLD!
