Things that never should have happened but somehow turned out awesome.

Accidental Art


While washing my hands this morning getting ready for another coat of lilac polish I noticed the shape of the soap took on a ghostly appearance. The creative side of me just couldn’t miss the opportunity to add some googly eyes and a post it note with BOO written on it for the next person in line for the bathroom. I thought I’d share my sudsy spirit with you today.


Mission accomplished! Sally Hanson’s Lacy Lilac nail polish is perfect for spring and summer and a statement polish for me for the lavender color which represents Lupus Awareness Month.

Today I’m finishing up my sewing collage and starting on this…..


I made this garland of buttons, beads, and bobbins for the painting I’m currently working on but it just didn’t fit in the way I wanted it to so I decided to make a special piece just for this band of bling. What better things to do this time of year than to create gardens… indoors and out!

Since the sun has taken a certain dislike to me I’ll make my garden indoors for now. I’ll share me blooms with you as they grow.

Egg-spress Yourself


They look like eyes. they both cracked the same way into the pan. I immediately saw a face and had to snap a picture for my Accidental Art collection.

I took some pictures of myself last week and the pictures really didn’t look like me…so I took some more at different angles… and still, it’s really not me and I was unable to put my finger on what’s different/wrong. After really studying what the differences were… I figured it out. Whatever has me sick is causing one side of my face to ‘swell’ –it’s quite subtle but it’s very obvious around the eye area as it make me eye look like it’s bulging a bit, much like the left egg in this photo.

I see the rheumatologist next week… so hopefully we’ll find out eggactly what’s wrong with me.



I’ve always loved putting puzzles together and when I saw this one in Costco a few weeks back I knew I had a pastime that would be relaxing enough to take my mind off doctor visits. These cupcakes are enough eye candy that I didn’t even crave sweets…. other than some coffee with Sweet Italian Cream coffee creamer. /NOM!

It took a while to put this 1000 piece puzzle together which is what I was looking for. I had so much fun with it that I just picked up another from my grocery store this week…

How quaint is this village?


Tomorrow I have some accidental art to share with you… A happy accident that happened while making breakfast this morning. It’s rather egg-citing so check back soon!

Glitter Explosion


While adding the finishing touches on today’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month ATC I grabbed for some old school glitter glue I haven’t used in forever. I noticed that the glue wasn’t shaking to the tip so I squeezed the bottle and it was extremely brittle from age and it just exploded! I haven’t touched any of it … I’m letting it dry and I’ll be using the glitter litter for something clever down the road which should be lots of fun.


Button Up! This card is fully loaded with glitter and sparkly and topped off with buttons to fasten to keep you warm through the icy winter. Lots of gold and pink and brown. Sweet at pie!

Three down!


Three down… This was fun.. VERY fun. I need to take detail photos so you can see the nommy goodness of the texture and bling I added… I’ll get those up tomorrow for you…

Today I’m working on the 4th doll…Imagine…. and this adorable little wooden substrate.

I’m thinking beach! Don’t cha think?
We shell see! 😉

I’ll be back tomorrow with detailed photos of An Evening in Paris for you.

Butterfly Breeze

I’m continuing to work on my garden series and completed Butterfly Breeze yesterday afternoon. I’m super happy with it and stretched my limits a bit on this one. I smudged more and added some texture to my flowers. I truly enjoyed the process of this painting. I included more moss from my yard to finish off the garden look of this piece.

The butterflies are done with modeling paste and smudge painted with several shades of pink, topped with glitter glaze and outlined and smudged with black charcoal. I used a black seed bead to set twisted wire for the antenna. The texture on the flowers is done with Scribbles 3D fabric paints.

Drop me a comment and let me know if you carrot all for for this painting. =)

After a candlelit evening watching TV and chatting it up… here’s what left. The wax went wild and now I have a monkey’s face in my candle holder. I thought this was comical enough to share with you… art appears everywhere, you just need to be receptive to it and look for the unexpected.

My living room paintings are done and I’m going to hang them today but sadly my dad’s still in the hospital so I’m off to return some phone calls for my mom. After my calls are made I’ll hang my art, take some pictures and share them tomorrow.

Over and out for now.

You Have To Break A Few Eggs…

Here’s what’s left of the eggs I dyed for Easter. The wonderful intensity of the colors was too good to pass up. I just had to save them for using in my art. I’ll share once I’ve used some. Right now however, I’m working on finishing up the paintings I’m creating for the living room. ‘Almost’ done!  I have a few things to finish up on them and then I have the edges of the canvases to deal with …

This weekend my Dad went into the hospital with a mild case of pneumonia, A-fib, and somethings wrong with his blood sugar. Any prayers would be greatly appreciated. He is a very much loved man and a pillar to his family and friends. He may be transfered today to a bigger hospital here in town… I’ll keep you posted.

I’ve some other things to share as well, but I don’t have the pictures yet so I’ll share those this week. I’m off to say my prayers and work on my paintings.

God Bless!

My cutting board looked very much like a watercolor painting after chopping vegetables for Everything Slaw. The purple cabbage and carrots together in the bowl looked so much like Halloween too. If you’re looking for something to serve with pulled pork, burgers or sandwiches I highly recommend this recipe. It’s quite yummy!

I’m busy in my studio this morning… bright and early! We had a snow storm over night and I was up at the crack of dawn to see the results… check out some of the pics after you grab a cup of hot cocoa!

Quite frosty out there indeed. I’m wrapping up in a blanket, pulling out my paints and enjoying the view from my studio window! See you tomorrow!
