About Me

My photo
I would classify myself as an artist. It took me a while to finally accept that monicker, but that's what I am; AN ARTIST!!! I have a wonderful hubs that supports my "talents" in most all avenues, except maybe when the credit card bill comes in the mail...LOL And I have 4 great kids and 5 beautiful grandchildren that I love to pieces. Come on by and sit a spell and "STAMP 'TIL YA CRAMP!!! & "CROP 'TIL YA DROP!!!"

Long time ....NO SEE!!!!!!!

Been a very long time since I have had the time to sit down and visit with you guys!!!! Here's why.... I had the opportunity to design and paint several large mural pieces at a "Jump for Joey" facility. For those that aren't familiar with a J4J, its a large play house for kids.... Its loaded with large air filled slides and other things for kids to jump, slide, bounce on indoors. The one that I'm working on has 4 party rooms and I'm painting murals in 3 of the rooms. The first one was done by a different artist. I was lucky enough to become friends with the owner and she saw my work and loved it. Below you can see results of the first two rooms and I will start on the third room monday....
First room has a jungle theme..... Yeah I know you are saying kangaroos don't belong in the jungle....lol But that is the registered logo for J4J franchises. So I have to incorporate "Joey" into all the rooms.









This next room is a beach theme........








The next room will be a sports theme and I have a super cool idea for that one!!!!

Hopefully I can be back at least part-time on here and post a few cards, but until the mean time.... I miss all of you and "Stamp til ya cramp and Crop til ya drop"!!!!!

Until later, FRIENDS!!!! Gotta split..........TFL!!!!!!
