Thank you...

to everyone that commented on my OWOH giveaway, but especially for those who showed concern for my health.

I got my diagnosis on January 30th and have been processsing the fact that I do have Fibromyalgia. I did the routine blood work and x-rays to rule out anything else, but from what I know about the condition from friends who have it, it wasn't too much of a surprise. It is nice to know that I'm not as crazy as I was feeling. Now I can get the help I need and move on with my life and hopefully get back into creating my art on a somewhat more regular basis. The last 6+ months have been hard with the job change and the fibro flareups becoming more frequent and intense, but I am able to see the light at the end of the tunnel now.

Anyway, thank you all for making this year's event an amazing one for me. I never thought I would receive so many comments on my giveaway, especially since I hadn't even made my prize yet. One journal is completed, but I haven't been able to take pictures of it yet because my camera is on the fritz and I have yet to make a second one, so the 2nd and possibly third prizes will be something that I already made and most likely something that you've seen in my journal.

Thanks to all 400 of you wonderful people!!

One World~One Heart


It's that artfully AMAZING time of the year again...One World~One Heart!! I participated last year and discovered so many incredibly talented and generous artists from around the world. The blog candy is just...WOW! Click on the above linkie for a list of the participants and check back often as more blogs will be added to the list as the event goes on.

I've been running behind and have yet to make my giveaway(s) because of health issues and trying to get a diagnosis, but there will be one and possible two or three depending on how many comments I get. Please check out my blog so you get an idea of what kind of work I do and if you like my style. I do plan on making at least 2 smallish art journals, approx. 4x6", made with 140 lb. watercolor paper, hand-bound and covered with scrapbook paper and other embellies.

Anyone with or without a blog can enter my giveaway, just please leave a way I can contact you if you're a winner. OWOH starts today, January 19th and ends of February 12the when I announce the winner(s).

Now get thee to the OWOH homepage and start checking out the other participants!! You won't regret it...unless you don't!

Have a great day and be artful!

Sunday's Daily Art/Challenges

Rainbow Lady's Challenge--Facelift for an Old Friend (
5x5 collage
I used one of my favorite background stamps and instead of using it for the background, I made a frame of it and cut out the middle, which will be used for another project, perhaps a tag. This was a fun challenge and happily was one that I never did before.
