Bio & Headshot

Well Hello there! If you've stumbled your way to this blog WELCOME! I'm a widwestern gal who is darn crafty. I love taking all kinds of pictures,  but taking funny ones of myself are my favourite. I am a t.v. and movie addict who can remeber all kinds of movie history, actors names, dates and trivia, however, I cannot seem to remember where I put my purse, keys and sometimes my children! 

To learn more about me you can get a backstage tour by clicking on the different links and visiting the bio/headshot area.

While I was away...

I had some brushes with fame.

On a recent trip to the Verizon store to upgrade my phone I ran into this woman...

This is Vicky from the Bravo tv show Real Housewives of Orange County.

I did a real double take of her and I know she knew I knew who she was. She seemed in a real bad mood about her phone or laptop issues, so I left her alone. I didn't have my camera with me nor my phone camera ,so I couldn't get a photo with her.

And what do you say to a reality star?

 Gee,I really like you? Sounds kinda silly.


 this guy calls me!

 And he keeps calling me!

This story begins in my scrapbook room. I was reading some blogs when Brad walks in and says there's a phone call for you. I see it says Michael "Buble' is calling.

I don't know what to think.

The back story is I am a member of the Bungalow  Fan  Club or the Michael Buble' fan club.

He is going on tour with his new cd and I am constantly getting emails letting me know about fan club member tickets, events, etc.

I then forward these to Brad sending large hints that this would be an amazing gift opportunity!

So, when I see he's calling I start shaking and literally cannot answer the phone.

When I do answer...

 Michael is not on the line!

 I've missed him!

I am panicking now when suddenly...

He calls again!

I answer again

and again ...

No Michael!

Brad is now cracking up and I realize this is a joke!

I don't know what is funnier...

the joke itself

or the fact that I actually thought Brad had somehow through some crazy connections got Michael Buble' to call me!

 Apparently this new phone I have (a Droid) has this application called fake phone calls!

So he sent me a fake one from Michael!

My last brush with fame took place here...


Where I met her...


 The Donna Downey!

It was a wonderful Sunday afternoon. We gessoed, painted, watercolored, stamped and embossed.

This was an amazing class. Donna was so much funand FUNNY TOO!

 The perfect kind of class for me... No measuring!

I'm a glue and go kinda girl.

Donna's a paint and go kinda gal. Just put a dollup of paint right on the canvas and get busy. Loved it!

I was so inspired I simply cannot wait to get back from vacation to finish my book and make some more art using some of the techniques I learned in her class.

I met an old friend and even made a new friend, Traci.

You can check out her cool vintage shop here on Etsy.


So sorry I was away so long, I never really meant to go...

I've been making alot of the convertables for orders, gifts, and Christmas outfit requests, including my own!

I am so excited that 3 convertables will be worn by the artists/ performers in this years Willow Creek Christmas services!

I also need some for vacation...

Two of them are a must for the location of my destination...

but more about that tomorrow!
