died in service to our country. 

Thank you !

Don’t just stand there gyrating.

I know some people don’t like to dance, they feel silly shaking their bootie.  Me? I love dancing.  I just wish I was better at it.  My Guy and I only go dancing once a year or so on New Years Eve (except this year, we didn’t go this year because of the job situation.)

We’re from the baby boomer generation and because there is no *dance* that goes along with “Purple Haze,” we didn’t learn to dance. We just kind of stand there and gyrate, as my dad used to say. 

My Guy and I tried dance lessons about 20 years ago but we both wanted to lead. LOL ( My motto is if you’re not going to lead, I will….LOL) So we didn’t learn much.   But now I’d love to take Salsa lessons and we have actually thought giving lessons another try. Someday, when we actually have a place to try what we learned, we just might.

Anyone know where we can Salsa dance in Sacramento?

Learn 2 Dance


And in the late but better than never category is the page inspired by the Mother’s Day card I got from my guy. I still haven’t told him I cut it up the same day he gave it to me. Sshhh!

Beauty comes in small packages


I won Tapeswell tapes


Yay!! I just got these beautiful tapes in the mail from A week or two ago, someone on Twitter mentioned that Brides Buddy blog was having a tape giveaway. So I hurried myself over there to enter and I was the lucky winner.  Aren’t they gorgeous?

I want to thank both Tracy Kuethe from the Brides Buddy blog and Eileen from for their generosity.  They are almost too pretty to use but use them I will; in my journals and art mail.

OK, gotta go put them to good use…..

The Girl, the Bird and the Pipe


Here are some new journal pages that I have been working on. Nothing fancy, just something to keep me creating.  I’m having fun with the colorful geometric designs but I decided to try something else too. Don’t want to get in a rut. :)

The Girl:

I’ve been questioning my decisions a lot lately.  I guess it has to do with our financial situation, which is still not good.  I will probably be second guessing myself until things normalize …. whatever normal might be in the future. I know normal will be very different but I’m hopeful that it will be better even if it’s scaled down. 

If Only

The Bird:

I could never be a bird; I hate worms.  I’d rather have coffee.

The Early Bird

The Pipe:

I almost feel like I should add text to the pipe. Maybe later. I’m not feeling very wordy right now. Although I’m sure my husband would disagree considering I had a few with him a while ago.  :)
