Mermaid for swap

I made this mermaid for an artdoll swap..I used shells for her"wings"..the paper was painted with LuminArte' Twinkling H20's in several colors. Face image from a collage sheet from collagevisions. Ranger Old Paper ink was used to "age"her.

Drawing of my Husbands

Stephen did this one a while ago.....My Mom and Savannah when she was a toddler(she's 25 now!).

My husbands art

One of my husbands drawings.

Altered card

A Halloween card I made for my husband last year...thought it would amuse him(it did me!!) because he is always comlaining about tripping over all my shoes!! I AM A SHOE ADDICT!!!!


I made this ATC using a PID image. I just love the image in the bird nest...don't we alll just want to view the world from a different perspective?

Mixed media Necklace

This is a necklace I made using a very smooth ,oval rock.stitched around rock to hold it and added charms to it.

Jewelry I made some time ago

This neckace is one I made using my husbans art..I made it double sided because I couldn't decide which to use,,so I used both. The little bottle has a key in it.I wanted it to symbolize the wrongs done and the key to show the "door"opened to change.
I hope you like it.
