Amazing sheets and the quality is beyond belief!!!

A few more fun Sunday pics

Wow, 20 cents higher than on the main land now this is the life you can actually just pull up and drive right on the beach

and here is proof....we did just that. Tried to see some wild horses today but didn't want to use the new car to go four wheeling. Tried to get a tour but what few folks were out today all tours were booked. We are going to try and head back before tourist season starts.

It is back or should I say I am back with .....

One dollar Wednesday!!!! Due to the move and not having internet I was unable to post Patty's One dollar Wednesday art. So here you go make sure you go here to pick up your one buck digi sheet and while you are there make sure you check out all her new stuff!!

Well, I guess it is time

Man I hate to do this but when I went to my email yesterday I had 260 emails. They were all from here and some spammer so with that said I am going to have to do that id thingy and I hate to do it....... Sorry.....

At last I am in the new studio

Here are just a few pictures. This is some of my art, art that has been sent to me as well as my Audrey picture. Tons of paint, etc This is where my T.V. will go as soon as it gets here but for now I have a picture from 1875? an art class in Lakeland Florida from my dear friend Barbra Joan and my S.U. ink pads,
Here is Breakfast at Tiffany's as well as my paint holder. And below that table? Tons of stuff it took forever to go through it all today

Here is my new desk. pens, pencils etc
And this is all ATC stuff with cricut right below ( speaking of which cricut needs to make an ATC inspired cartridge) are you listening Cricut?

Here is all my glues, tattered angel ink sprays and of course my Tim Holtz stuff.

More glue than any one person would ever need...

This is boxes upon boxes of unmounted rubber stamps

And here even more boxes upon boxes of unmounted stamps

this is from the door entering into the studio

This is where I keep just

I have all stamping magazines back from 13 years ago. I would never dream of getting rid of them. lol

And tons of Stampin Up sets of wood mounted stamps, they are all on this and it is full. The canvas is blocking the majority of them but I have tons and some of these are 13-14 years old too. lol
Now you see Darcie wood mounted stamps of course they no longer make these and these are so cute ..

My flowers on top, boxes of cards to do and more stamps... but in the center is the letter that came with my amazing Breakfast at Tiffanys altered box.

I can't wait to get into the studio again. It has been almost a year since I have seen many of my supplies as most may remember we planned on moving last year this time and it didn't happen. This year here we are and I am loving the outer banks.

Breakfast AT Tiffany's Altered ART

OH MY GOD This arrived today from Patti.
The pictures are in the wrong order... but let's break this amazing piece down. The piece is an altered two sided box with legs. The outside piece oh my god perfection. The inside just nails it.
First here is Holly Golightly strumming her guitar on the fire escape.

And here is my favorite pose ever of Audrey Hepburn. Patti nailed it with her cigarello and the song Moon River. WOW
This is an actual movie reel. I mean I can't explain in words how amazing this piece is. You can see from the pictures how beautiful it is and this just doesn't do it total justice.

TA DA here it is!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I mean seriously this is just simply fantastic.

This piece will hold a place of honor in my studio in the new house right next to the amazing canvas Toni made me.
The art world is an amazing place....
Patti thank you so much for this...and again....thank you just isn't enough. I only hope you love your piece as much as I love mine.
I will post pics of my altered art project at a later date ( after Patti receives it)

I received a request to evaluate some jewelry from and post my honest thoughts. I asked Sarah to send me any piece she wanted but to make it the average price a customer would pay when visiting her site.

What I received today just blew me away.

Not only is the pearl beautiful but the setting and chain are of such a great quality.

Here is what the website says

White Gold Rhodium Bonded Pearl Pendant With a Pave Set Clear CZ Leaf Grasping a Tahitian Pearl in SilvertoneThe Leafed Tahitian Pearl Pendant is simple and classic but still unique. The silver tone leaf of pave CZ grasps a tropical tahitian pearl of beautiful colors. White Gold Rhodium Bond is achieved using an electroplating process that coats the item with heavy layers of rhodium, a close cousin of platinum that costs three times as much, which gives our jewelry a platinum luster.

I can't say enough how pleased I am not only with the pearl but the chain. The chain is not a light weight chain you would normally see on a necklace but a twisted heavy duty chain.

I would give Sarah a thumbs up and say you can't go wrong buying from Sarah at

So, run on over and check it out. This necklace is on sale for $65.00 and for a Tahitian Pearl that is a great price.

Thanks Sarah and I hope that everyone who reads this stops over to check out your site.
