Has it really been that long?

Wow, It has been a long time since I've blogged!!! Like a lot of people I am getting ready for the holidays, and it seems like time is always getting away from me!

We recently had some family photos taken, it had been about 4 years since our last. My sister-in-laws friend did them. She was a sport we had all of my husbands family, it was no small feat! She really did a super job! Thanks Katie!

I just wanted to share with you a painting I just listed on Etsy, It's called "Someone to watch over me"

Have a Wonderful Christmas!

It's been way too long.....

Hello, again it seems like forever since I've blogged and I guess it has been!! Well summer is almost on it's way out and fall is just around the corner, although here in Temecula is feels like summer is just beginning!

I have had a rough couple months, but things are getting better.

I signed up for the goddess and the poet workshop with the very talented Suzi Blu, and finished another mermaid painting for my daughter who turned 9.

Here are a few photos,

I admit I'm a fan!!!!!

I just finished reading the Twilight series by Stephanie Meyer!!!!!!!!
I was at a yard sale a few weeks back and saw the first book, twilight. I thought hey it's only a quarter, why not read it and find out what the hype was about.
Was I surprised! Okay, so that was the first book, which once I started reading I literally could not put down! I finished the first one in a day, then I thought oh no, I can't just stop here, I have to find out what happens next..............I started asking my 14 year old son if his friends (girls he knows) have any of these books I could borrow. He looked at me and said "what, not you too mom, all the girls at my school talk about is Edward and Bella". I must admit I was a bit embarrassed, here I am a 42 year old thinking about vampires, have I lost my mind? I got over that pretty quickly as soon as I started the next book. So needless to say I am a huge fan and I am proud to admit it! So I say go on give them a read, I think you will be a huge fan too!

The sea is calling

I really wanted to go the the Suzi blu mermaid class in San Diego, but I just couldn't manage it...what a bummer! It looked like all you ladies had a great time!
Well, I thought I can't make the class, but I can certainly make a mermaid.....

Maybe next time

Pink Saturday and Happy Easter

Without Easter

Without Easter,there would be no hope of heaven.

Without the hope of heaven, there would be no repentance,

no personal transformation, no attempt to follow

biblical principles. Without Easter, the world would

be in chaos and darkness. Jesus' death and resurrection

means we can be reborn, to live better, to do better, to shine light

into the shadows.


Happy, Happy Easter
