Some Things I'd Like to Share

Believe in Your Own Song

My mixed media piece, Believe in Your Own Song was chosen to be in 2 beautiful Etsy treasuries this week!

They are:

The Prairie in My Dreams
Created by Takin' Time--thank you so much!

My Mother's Nest

Thank you so much, Cricket and Cat from Tattered Rebel!

Nostalgia Collage--New in My Etsy Shop
A lovely thought for Mother's Day~

Original Collage. The female graphic is from
Shabby Cottage Studio. The music paper is

Dream Girl Collage--New in my Etsy shop
Graphic of female is from Shabby Cottage Studio.
The French graphic is from The Graphics Fairy.

And here is a tag I just completed for Tag Tuesday at Rebecca's Belle South! The theme was "chairs," so I used one of my favorite graphics from Shabby Cottage Studio called Chaise de Summerhouse.

One of my favorite color combinations is robin's egg blue and taupe, so creating this tag gave me a chance to use it.

A Country French feel to it...

With plenty of curly seam binding and lace.

If you'd like to see a close-up of anything posted here, please click on the picture.

Thank you so much for coming to visit!

Also, some exciting news~Dezinaworld has a fabulous graphic with pink roses as a freebie today if you'd like to grab it!

All I have found is Art Journaling sites. I Love art journaling, don't misunderstand, but I love creating with vintage items, paint, ephemera, dimension, beautiful fun! And you are AMAZING!!!

I hope you don't mind me stopping by, and rambling a bit. I'm your newest follower!! and I've bookmarked you too!! don't worry, I might be a little crazy, but not a stalker!!

Now I love this French chair tag most of all. I am going to do some creating of my own this weekend. I can't wait to start playing. I have been gathering pieces along the way, and almost have everything that I think I am going to need.

Thank you for continuing to inspire me to create sweet friend. I so enjoy seeing each and every creation. Your talents SO amaze me.

Hope you are doing well. I am home sick today. I think I have a flu bug. Rest, rest and more rest. I just had to get my "Cindy" fix for the day. Many hugs sweetie and SO much love, Sherry

SJ @ Homemaker On A Dime said...

Hi, friend! You've got a lot of informative & creative posts so why
not show them off at the Creative Bloggers' Party & Hop? My co-host
this week is Amber from Lucky Lees To Be.

This is a combination of linky party (where we can show off our
creations) and of blog hop (where we can follow as many excellent
bloggers as we like), hence the name Creative Bloggers' Party & Hop.
It's a great way to meet awesome creative bloggers like you and
increase your followers in the process.

All you have to do is 1) link up whatever creative post you'd like to
share - can be a DIY project, decor, photography, crafts, recipes,
poem, thrift finds, tips, or that informative syndicated post that can
make us laugh, or cry - in short, whatever you're proud of! 2) Then
follow as many blogs as your heart desires, preferably starting first
with the one before you and after you, and leave a comment to them
that you're doing so.

You’re not required to include the party button – you read that right
– not required to include the party button but if you’re so inclined
to display it in your blog or your post, you’re very much welcome to
do so :)

See you at

Melissa said...

I found you at Homemaker on a Dime's blog hop. I love mixed media, and yours are so stylish and beautiful. I have yet to try it, but your pieces are inspiring.

SJ @ Homemaker On A Dime said...

Yay! You came! These are all eye-candies. Great job! Thank you for sharing this at the Creative Bloggers' Party & Hop :) I hope you'll join us again starting 5 pm this Sunday, PST.
