Candace has Arrived!!

Guess who came in the mail...yes I said WHO? Candace has arrived and I can tell you that she has quickly gotten used to the Florida Sun..Soon after opening up the box,I found her out back catching some rays..."OH Candace,Be sure to put on some sun block!"

Stay tuned for Candace updates as we will be enjoying her visit this week.And if you would like to see more of her adventures visit her Momma's blog at

We have also been enjoying ourselves in the summer sun.Yesterday we had a wonderful day at the beach.Taking advantage of these lazy,no schedule,kinda days...

I cant say I have had much creative time,but I don't really seem to mind.I did have to finish up some projects like these custom journals and cuffs...

....And at night when the house is quiet I manage to fiddle around with some digital work.Here are two recent challenge entries..

The first is the freedom challenge and this piece is called "Hope".The words are taken by the the song "Green Finch and Linnet Bird" from the movie Sweeney Todd.You are listening to the song now.I had to use the bird cage in this challenge.

Next is the Dark Challenge.Something I must admit, I am not totally used to,but I am having fun with it.The first Piece is called "Time"..

...and this one is called "Road Kill".I had to use the clock pieces and the dolls in the finished work.

As always,
thank you so much for stopping by

I like that picture of Candace with your soon in the are truly a wonderful photographer. The pictures of your kids at the beach are just heartwarming... especially your son in the surf! For someone who hasn't had a lot of creative time lately, you sure have a lot of wonderful new things to show us! Beautiful work as always!
