gratitude attitude

sometimes i do well to remember to be grateful and other times i get caught up in the noise of life. that noise can still away the moments of life which is all we have this post is about reminding me to stay in the moment....turning the noise down a notch or 2 and being grateful everyday.

11-1-11 i am grateful i made it through the morning after halloween sugar rush......=0) and that i have a warm soft bed and a full nights sleep. (why- kids waking up and sleeping on couch)

backgrounds part 2

 this is a card i made and friends wanted to know how i did the back ground paper so i thought i would do a video and i could not get it to work but i will try here are some pictures to show some of the steps....just remember no right or wrong and if you don't like it keep adding to it .....=0) I like to use 3 colors and add all over a piece of paper or art journal page bright and crazy......then i water down white paint or use the airbrush paint that is already thin (learned from Donna Downey)
put it on top of one side then mist with water and brush over (make sure paint is dry) then if i want more color to show i will lift some of the white off with paper towel.... once dry i use black ink and stamp some of my favorite stamps on like clock faces and my words background....
I cut up the paper to use as backgrounds for card and ATC's sometimes i will use white paint on a stamp and stamp to add extra dimension and use white paint on my finger and go around the edges (gives a different look than ink).

then i added ink to edges and a little on card to blend again adding layers of  items or techniques create depth to the backgrounds....

angels among us

angels among us.....
be brave dream
 2 and 1/2 years ago i went through an epic event in my life that changed me forever....i went from being brave, talkative and fearless to being shy, quiet ( some days i did not speak a full sentence) and afraid. The song in my heart was so quiet i could not remember it or figure out how to heal. a lot of patience from others, from myself for me, online art therapy (because i rarely went anywhere), and i continued prompt in my head of just one foot in front of the other help me begin to listen to my song (dreams, hopes) but it was friends that told me some of the songs of my heart and encouraged me that i could dream  and they just listened when i did talk or just cried for no reason at times....I would touch my face and realize it was wet with tears and i did not even that is the inspiration for this piece and i think many more to come....they will each be one of a kind with an angel and encouraging remind others of the angels among us.....

fyi: this trio is for sale for $40.00 when it posts to my etsy store it will be $45.00 thank you for coming by and have a great day

Oct 6

Grow old along with me
The best is yet to be
When our time has come
We will be as one
God bless our love
God bless our love

Grow old along with me
Two branches of one tree
Face the setting sun
When the day is done
God bless our love
God bless our love

Spending our lives together
Man and wife together
World without end
World without end

Grow old along with me
Whatever fate decrees
We will see it through
For our love is true
God bless our love
God bless our love
by john lennon

it is our aniversary hard to believe 32 years have gone by lots to think on good and bad....

something i have learned
Marriage is accepting each others faults, forgiving each others mistakes
           and loving unconditionally.............helping each other become the best that is in them.

Jacob was a cheater. Peter had a temper. David had an affair. Noah got drunk. Jonah ran from God. Paul was a murderer. Gideon was insecure. Miriam was a gossiper. Martha was a worrier. Thomas was a doubter. Sara was impatient. Elijah was moody. Moses stuttered. Zaccheus was short. Abraham was old. Lazarus was dead…. Now what’s your excuse? Can God use you or not? God doesn’t call the qualified, He qualifies the CALLED.
