it's that wonderful, magical night...

If you look closely at the top left pumpkin, can you tell what is carved in?


If you guessed a dolphin jumping in the water, you're right.
That comes straight from the imagination of a very special little 5 year old girl!
Good job, right?

And I had to do a Orange and Black purse for this special occasion:

Happy Halloween,
All Hollows Eve,
and Blessed Samhain!

it's woyww #230...

Yes, another Wednesday has rolled around, too quickly I think since I missed last Wednesday and have no idea where it went or what I did.

I have to admit that I did tidy-up since I couldn't even find my art table buried under a pile of half-made purses, canvas and then found what I had already been working on.

 And there is a look at my art table in all her glory!
In the back you can see a hot pink purse and a lime green purse ready for decorating and handles.

On the left are ear warmers, plaid material for flowers and a box of broken jewelry that my friend Lynda gave me from her store for me to use on purses or mixed media! I scored BIG TIME!
Oh and my bumper sticker from my daughter.
Looking to the right is the bowl of cloth flowers I need to put hair clips on along with a bag of old zippers to make zipper roses!
I have lots to keep me busy these next couple days.
That's it for me, short and sweet??

Don't know what's the big deal about Wednesdays or WOYWW is? Please visit our amazing hostess Julia over at Stamping Ground to find out more!

Have a Wonderful Wednesday!

i'm back and i got presents...

Have you ever had weeks that fly by so fast that you don't even know what happened or why?
Well that is how it has been since I got back from my Tahoe trip.

I have made some more purses which I will show later. First though I want to share some wonderful gifts I have gotten.

This is from my Sissy Lisa:
The necklace on the left is a mixture of different beads strung and twisted beautifully together.
The gorgeous necklace on the right is turquoise nuggets strung with brass seed beads.
Lisa makes the most awesome jewelry.

THEN, I got a package from my daughter!
Her and I were separated when she was 2-1/2 years old and I have not seen her since. She just turned 33 years old and we are talking every day.
Her and I are so much alike.
I feel the empty hole in my heart is finally filled with my baby girl back!

Here's what I saw once I got the packaging stuff and towel out of the way:

First this precious little baby faery; wings, diapers and binky with a cute little bow holding up her little baby hair.

Next was a photo album full of pictures!













A book she made me promise to read with a cute bookmark that cracked me up.
She also included this darling little pipe cleaner doll and a tiny change holder:

Yay! A bumper sticker with my favorite Dragon saying on it.
I think I will put this on my art table!

And last was a couple special little things she wanted to give me! I will treasure everything!

Yep, this is my beautiful baby girl!
I am so blessed to have my daughter and my sister back in my life.

I wanted to share my joy and love and beaming heart!

May you have blessings coming your way too.

Now it's time to go find my workspaces that are covered in complete chaos before tomorrow's WOYWW.

WOYWW #227...

Yes Wednesday has rolled around again and that means it's time to share our work spaces on What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday?
Find out more from out more from our lovely hostess Julia over at Stamping Ground HERE

I must be becoming a true WOYWWer as I am on vacation with my sister and her fiance in beautiful South Lake Tahoe, California!

My Sissy and I have been creating here on the coffee table BUT before I show you both of our workspaces, here is the view we can look out at during playtime:

Absolutely breathtaking!

Now here is my space on the coffee table:

And yes that is tea and not coffee. I have to limit my coffee intake to one cup a day. I am almost over the withdraws!

The beginning of my drawing "girl behind the tree".
And I just splurged on a tin of new colored pencils:

Now onto Lisa's space:
As you can tell, she is making some beautiful jewelry out of stones, stone beads and a little silver and "bling".

Time to take a break, walk outside and breath!

The sounds of waves hitting the shore reminds me of the ocean.
The beach is only a few more steps below!

This is the condo we are staying in!
I don't want to leave!

Time to finish up playing for now.

Lisa finished two amazingly awesome necklace/earring sets:

I love the detail in the stones that makes every one of them unique.
Lisa definitely has an eye for color and putting it together!

My camera couldn't even come close to capturing the beauty in this piece. 

I was more playing around laying on the loveseat, all propped up and coloring, talking and laughing. This is as far as I got:
All of this was yesterday afternoon. Since today we need to eat and start packing to go home after FOUR GLORIOUS DAYS filled with love, laughter, tears, talking and healing I feel like a brand new person with a brand new goal.

That will come in a later blog.

As for today, have a Wonderful WOYWW!!!

it's wednesday, and it's woyww #226...

Happy WOYWW #226!
This is the fun day of the week to post our work areas and take a peek into work desks, tables, areas, couches, floors all over the world where some of the most creative people create!

If you would like to learn more, please visit the amazing host of this Wednesday party, Julia, over at Stamping Ground!

I missed last week :(
So I will try to quickly catch up on what I have been up to.

First, here is my art table:








Hiding the mess and clutter is a lightweight, pre-made blue tote that I am doodling on. I was actually doing it laying on the couch although I thought it looked better on the art table for the picture.
Really I have so many little art spaces around here I just couldn't add one more.

Next are some purses I am getting ready for my friend's booth that she is letting me put them in for the Fall season! Yay!
And my favorite so far, besides my own, is the green one below:
Well that's it for me today!
I will be out visiting as many of you as I can. 
I think I am going to do what others do, which is visit everyone that ends in the last number as mine, then the friends I have met through here and always anyone who leaves a comment...and if computer time today permits, more spaces!!!

Have a WONDERFUL WOYWW WEEK!!!
