Looking back....

Silly little Valentine
Love Shack
Circa 2010

Looking back in the blog...I came across
this little bride and groom Valentine...

The little gift bags Victoria Secret used during
Christmas 2009 were perfect for this project.
Along with a heart candy box lid, candle stick,
crepe paper and some Mary Engelbreit  paper dolls. 
Yes, I admit.... a bit corny...but, it is Valentines!!!

Let's Get Real!

Several months ago I posted a photo of
my newly remodeled studio.

I received several sweet comments.  There
were those that liked this or that about it... and
then those that said they wished their creative
area was as neat and tidy.   Such kind the time I thought, someday
after a marathon of creating....I will show
the after shock!!! 

So let's get real....  

 When I am in that 
mode of rushing around...being all creative!! LOL...
I don't close drawers...     I do the grab and run.
For looks like this.
And worse at times.

 This might not seem so bad to some....a couple of
bottles of glitter have fallen over.  So What?
 The question is, where are all the other bottles that belong there???  Good Question!

Maybe the glitter is....under all these lovely and wonderful treasures on my work station/rolling cart.  

I love this piece...
It has drawers..lots of open space underneath and a great place to hold my paints.  Plus the great butcher block top.  It holds so much.....
to to much!

Glitter found......check!
Along with a variety of other precious creating necessities.  On the kitchen bar area.  It's where I go when I run out of room.  Why does mister mister put up with me?
Exposing my behind the scenes is a good thing.....
I did find my glasses and hair clippie when taking this photo.

 Tossed about vintage books...just  can't help myself.  Finding the right aged page is an art...I'm sure you would agree.   But why is there a red glittered reindeer in this photo?

However, today I am organized and have all the 
supplies located in one area for tomorrow's

I know you might have thought I was going to show 
you the entire studio in "after shock" from afar.....

Let's Get Real....
that would have been way to scary!!!
Have a great weekend.
Best Wishes,

We were married in January of 1983. 
Thirty years of New Year's Days!!
One full month of new beginnings!
 Just Amazing..... 

We have two young friends who are marrying
this year.  Just imagine what the next 30
years holds for them.   In 2043 they will
be celebrating their 30th wedding anniversary. 
We look forward to seeing all that the coming years have to offer them.   We hope that they are
blessed with as many wonderful memories and special moments as we have had.
