The finish of My 100 days

Well...these art journal pages are the last of my 100 days project.  They are all collages. 

Some of the collage elements are from Tangie Baxter printables...(above)

Here I used stickers from friends, Tessa and Cindy.

I took this photo in Paris myself.

I love that I can see the stuff coming up from the background under her face. 

Sad to say I did NOT complete the 100 days project. I fell short by 9 days. I filled up my 2 books and needed to start another...and just didn't feel like doing it.
Oh well, I'm happy with all the collages I have... and that is good enough for me.

Onto the next project.

Where Bloggers Create 2016

Welcome to my HAPPY PLACE!!!  I am linking up with Karen Valentines "Where Bloggers Create 2016 today and showing off my studios. I am super happy to have you here today. So, please come in and have a look around. I wish you all could really be here in person...because THAT would be super fun!!! First studio......

This is where all the inky, painty, splattering, swirling, gooey, sticky, messy fun happens!!! :0)

I have been given or traded  artwork with others from all over the world... They surround my studio and give me inspiration everyday :0)

This room is the room were I have the freedom to just let loose and play and enjoy myself and try new things with all the different mediums that I have. I really enjoy that about this room.
I make art journals for sale...and the covers always are original artwork by me. It can get messy when I'm making more than 2 or 3 journals at a time.

My desk. It is very important to me that I have all my supplies handy and close to me.

My shadows.... Bella (big girl) Daisy (black girl) Zoey (cream girl)
I can't imagine my life without them in it.
and that wraps up the messy fun mixed media studio!!!

.....second studio


The "I-need-to-be-spot-on-my-quarter-inch-mark-or-the-whole-quilt-will-be-off-studio-room"
Now, I'm going to take a second to say, that in the past studio tours...I ALWAYS get comments about HOW NEAT MY STUDIOS ARE!!!! Who has a studio tour and doesn't clean up??? Right? Well, I cleaned up my Mixed-Media room for the tour...but this year I decided NOT to clean up my quilt room. So, here we go...into a REAL QUILT ROOM.

Now here in my Quilt room I'm not so adventurous ...that is to say...I am but I am not... meaning...I'm very fussy about my quarter inch sewing line, my cutting line, paper-piecing line...the straight of grain and on and on. So...I put on a totally different hat when I walk into this room. I am NOT the same kind of artist when I come into this room.   But, I do feel like lately some of the other room has been inching its way into this room bit by bit...and I have to say...its kinda getting a little fun!!! So, I will have to wait and see what the future artist Sandra Kaye will look like....Ha :0)
I happen to be in the middle of 3 very big quilt projects and didn't have time to clean up...or want to clean up... so this worked out for you to see my room in its working stage. And before anyone says..."How come your floors are clean?" that is for the safety of my big girl Bella...she is the house GOAT...she love little bits of paper, fabric, ribbon, you name it...she will eat it...then we are off to the dog ER and I don't want that for we have learn to keep our floors clean...and all trash cans have lids or they stay on counters.

My mid-arm sit down machine is in the background there waiting its turn to start up. Her name is Bertha :0)

This is Momma-Nina

Baby-Nina is covered up here

Goldfish in the works

 Love my mini wall...but the projects are creeping up the wall...yikes!!!!

Well, there you go. Thanks so much for stopping by...hope you enjoyed your visit!!!
Thanks again Karen for hosting a great Tour :0)

Redbubble....Fun Stuff!!


I did this painting awhile ago.... and she hangs in my house. My family calls her my!!!
My friend Mindy Lacefield suggested that I check out Redbubble. There they take your photos and print them on anything you want them printed on. And people can go in and buy your art on stuff too. Much like Society 6. So, I took this painting outside to get nice bright pictures and loaded her up to Redbubble. WOW!!!! It was easy and fun. Now... You wonder what the stuff looks like??
Well, here is the stainless steel travel mug!!! AWESOME!!!  And it is not a plastic wrap either. Its really printed on there. Love it!!!

My hubs wanted to order the pillow... he ordered it flat without the pillow form. (cheaper) and the colors are spot on true to the canvas I painted, and it is the same on both sides!!! 
My friend Becky came over to art one day, so I showed her the Redbubble site...and she ordered my Red Roses on the spot for her 6plus Iphone. It is super fun! She has told me if she had them on hand she could have sold them half a dozen times already!!! hehe!!! :0)

Playing with the camera...trying my best to get a new picture of myself with a quilt behind me. I think there were 50 shots this day, and this was the only one I liked!!1 lol!!!! 

If you want to take a look...head on over to Redbubble and look me up. 

Click HERE to find me.

Or you can write down my link and save it for later....

My Poodles-My Loves

 I LOVE my girls!!!! I have three!!! Zoey (above) she is 12 years old next month, and the Mother of Daisy and Remy (who lives with my Sister). I was pulling out my cutter quilts to take chunks out of them to use in a project.... when I came back around the corner...and Ms. Zoey had made herself comfy. :0) I just didn't have to heart to move her. So, for the day I left them on the floor for her.
My sweet little Ms. Daisy ( She and her brother just turned 7 yrs old) They are toy poodles. My constant shadow. My velcro-pup. LOL!! She looks at me like the sun and the moon set on me. :0)

and then there is this delightful creature....Bella ( or whom I call "Bellabean") She is 4 years old. She is a Royal standard poodle. She is a very large poodle. Bigger than a standard poodle. And very protective of her Momma....Me :0) 

Me on the couch eating!!! Do they want something??? hmmm??? To be truthful when ever I'm on the couch eating my girls line up just like this every time. (It wouldn't be because they KNOW that if they are very patient Momma will slip something to them...would it?!!  :0) 

Me every morning when I put my make up on. "Bellabean" thinks it is a good time to watch and get snuggles!! How does one say no to such a face??? 

Due to the change in my finances I need to start grooming my poodles. Poor Zoey!!! I can't tell if she is telling me she forgives me despite my poor grooming skills or what?? But I put her on my bed and she layed down on this pillow. I had to take the picture. Like everything else...practice. I will get better Zoey I promise. She was the first to go that day...Bella went next...and I did better.

            heart melts when my girls look at me with such love in their eyes.
My last photo.... I was in the studio all day.... and Bella simply told me in her way that I had had enough. It was time for me to get up and stop. I am sitting in my chair and she is on her feet. I am NOT leaning over. THAT is how big my dog is!!! 
Bella wanted a hug... she layed her head on my chest and did not move. I held her like this for 5 minutes. I was able to get one selfie.

My girls complete my little world. I can't imagine my life without a poodle in it. And I never will have a life with out a poodle in it. I will always own one. They give you that unconditional love that we all need.

Besides Jesus Christ, my hubby, and kids.....they are a must for my life.
