Scary dream!

Last night I dreamt that I had a huge, bald spot...right on the top of my head. Well, it was actually most of my head. So devastating! I tried the popular 'comb over' but it was NOT helping!!

I went online this morning to try and find the meaning of a dream like this.

"To dream that you are going bald suggests a lack of self-esteem or worries about getting older. Alternatively, baldness symbolizes humility, purity, and personal sacrifice. You are at a stage in your life where you are confident in fully exposing yourself."

I can tell you right now, for me, it IS the self-esteem issue for sure!! My hair has thinned over the years and I do have hair envy when I see women with beautiful, thick hair. I wonder if they even realize how lucky they are? I have my health and I'm SO grateful for that, don't get me wrong. But I'd love me some gorgeous, thick hair too :) Just say'n.

A page in my watercolor journal…….

I’m so thankful for my angel and her subtle messages. I’m sure I’ve missed a few and that’s probably what has landed me in trouble from time to time Winking smile but when I do pay attention, she has saved my life on at least 2 occasions and probably many, many more that I’m just not aware of.

The more I look at her expression in this painting, it's like she's a little worn out and fed up with trying to guide me and somewhat annoyed? ha!

Oh well, I appreciate you angel!

Journal page and an owl




It snowed all day yesterday so I played a little Smile  Today I’m off to sit in an 8 hour sales and use tax seminar.  Words can’t express how much this is depressing me!  ugh


Have a great week!

Micki Wilde swap and a journal beginning

First of all, I wanted to share with you the BEAUTIFUL art piece I received yesterday from Micki Wilde!!

Micki had a wonderful plan to swap little pieces of her amazing artwork with anyone who was willing to do the same with her. Such a cool idea!

I sent this to Micki.


And this is the absolutely most wonderful piece I got from her!!


Isn’t she just beautiful!? Love it and thank you Micki!!

The amazing Serena Lewis inspired me to do a little watercolor art journal. My original plan was to try and paint a little something each day to reflect what’s going on in my life. Probably wasn’t a good idea to start it in December when I was swamped with Christmas plans? ha!

I bought one of these:


It’s fabulous!! Nice, sturdy paper and the size is just right, nothing too overwhelming.

Here’s the kind of pathetic part. It’s been 2 months, almost 3 and I’ve only done 4 pages!

003 004


It’s actually a fun thing to do, a great plan, I just need to keep up a little better with it. Thanks Serena (please visit her inspiring blog!) for inspiring me to try!

Mixed Media on Watercolor Paper


I started this girl the other night.  She’s done on 90 lb watercolor paper, which I feel is too thin!  I ended up cutting her out and mounting her to another piece.  Not particularly  happy with the sturdiness ( a little warped) so I mounted the entire piece in a frame that I had on hand.  I like her much better framed Smile  I kind of wish I would have adhered her to a wooden surface now, but it’s ok.

Not sure if you can read the wording?  ‘Yesterday is but a dream~and every tomorrow a vision of hope’

Off to a hockey game and then a birthday party!  Have a great Saturday!

Finished….I think?


Gumball-head girl SmileSeriously, I do need to come up with a title for this one and since she’s kinda ‘out there’ it may take me awhile!

Have a great weekend!! (We’re supposed to get a snow storm!)
