Always time for color

Life has been busy lately…lots of traveling, working and playing!  No matter how busy I get, I always make time for my favorite thing…COLORING!  

Coloring has become super popular and trendy!  Everywhere I go anymore, I see coloring books and colored pencils.  I’m glad peeps are discovering the relaxing and stress-relieving effects of coloring, whether you color stamps, or in coloring books!

Here are some of my recent colorings, including a page from a gorgeous coloring book by Roger La Borde that I purchased in Port Townsend.


All images colored with Copic markers.

Honor Thy Mother!

Hey crafty peeps!  Life has been busy here!  I am working more hours, which is really good fort craft supply!  Lol!  But I’m still making time to create!  I will always make time for that!

Here are some recent cards I have made for anniversaries, Mother’s Day and more…Enjoy!


Hoppy Easter Everybunny!

Greetings crafty peeps!  Happy Easter to all of you!  I love Easter, always have since I was a little girl!  The egg hunt, the candy, all of the pretty pastel colors!  And of course the delicate Easter dresses!  

I love coloring Easter images with my Copic markers.  I didn’t make as many cards as I wanted to this year, but I managed to send off three to my beloved 90 year old grandpa and my mother’s siblings.  I also colored a few images that didn’t make it onto cards, but they will next year!  Enjoy!



I Am A Colorist (Apparently)

Hello crafty peeps!  Yes, it has been a little while since my last post, but that is normal for me.  We just returned from a long vacation in Arizona!  I visited an art supply store while there, and the friendly owner of the store was impressed with my coloring skills.  We had a lovely conversation about Copic markers and he told me I was a talented colorist!  I love that!  Lol!  So I’m a colorist!  Yes ma’am!  

Here are some of my colorings from our relaxing vacation!  Enjoy and as always thanks for popping by! 





Color Me Wonderful

Hi crafty peeps! Today I have a Copic journal page to share with you. I colored a digital stamp from Saturated Canary with Copic markers. The focus of my page is using the hair color combination of E50, E43, E42, and E44 and E47. It took a long time to color! When coloring this much hair on an image, it’s best to work in sections.
I’m pleased with the way it turned out!



A New Year, new crafting!

Happy New Year crafty peeps! I know January is almost over, but you can still wish Happy New Year for the whole month, right?

I’m so excited about 2015! We have been enjoying our new house, where I have a wonderful craft room, and yes, I’m still getting it organized and ready! It’s almost there! I do most of my coloring and crafting on the couch in the living room anyways, but it’s sure nice to have a room where everything crafty can live!

Here is some of my recent coloring and projects!











Good Tidings and Happy Holidays!

Merry Christmas peeps. I love the holidays, even though it takes me a while to get in the spirit. It seems like the holiday bustle for Christmas starts way before Thanksgiving and that always bothers me. I love to celebrate Thanksgiving first, and I don’t want to hear any Christmas music until at least after Thanksgiving. LOL!

I normally don’t even make Christmas cards, but this year I was really inspired to make some handmade cards for my friends and family. I would like to share those with you now, as I have to get them in the mail promptly.

I hope you like them and as always thanks for reading, and I wish you and yours a very Merry Christmas and a happy new year!


















Simply Betty is Simply Fabulous at 40!

The owner of one of my favorite stamp companies, Simply B Stamps, is turning 40! Betty Queen of Halloween Roberts’ birthday is today, November 10th!

Many of her fans and customers were in on a secret to make birthday cards for her with a secret image! It was such a fun image to color!

I know she’s going to be thrilled when she receives all the cards in the mail! We surely love Betty! Happy Birthday Betty!

Here is my card for Betty!
