Eva Macie was one of the winners of our Anne Bagby Giveaway.

Here's how Eva described her process on her blog,

I decided to create a 12" x 12" foam stamp using the craft adhesive backed foam sheets. One cut into the buttery foam and I was hooked! I spent hours, totally mesmerized, cutting little shapes and sticking them onto a chipboard backing. Anne used canvas board, which would have been a better choice because the adhesive pieces may have easier to reposition. In addition, it also may have warped less with all of the wet paint applications. I mixed all of my paint as Anne suggested, cut and ironed a stack of tissue paper and began pulling prints.
After looking at the variety of prints I pulled from my foam stamp, I chose one with a circle shape that I blocked out on the stamp . It looked Asian to me so I decided use kimono as my theme. I applied a glaze I made, similar to Golden’s asphaltum, to the printed tissue and then I stenciled the words ’KIMONO’. I created the kimono from one of my Citra Solv papers, which I printed on a label and collaged this to the tissue print.

Isn't that foam plate great?! Thank you for sharing Eva!

Prayer Flags

What a joy it is to find a friend who has "like minded creative passion" my prayer is that all women learn to trust and also speak "one on one" instead of gossip - we women can really make a difference if we agree to do one thing - communicate with Love.    (no that doesn't you don't speak your mind - it just means go to that person - one on one ....old friendships can be renewed frendships restored etc.

the New Weight Watchers "let's take it off for good"

My dear ...very long time friend Terri, agreed to be my buddy this week in Weight Watchers! yaaaay! She has already lost 52 lbs  - took a break with Christmas but is back at it again...and we are going to encourage each other.

I've joined weight watchers for 12 times think something would have told me to stop trying.  How much in life do we not "fit in"?  But I always knew that it was "me" in this case LOL  I just could get the points - I knew how a break might be 1 point etc., but how do you figure out mixed dishes etc.,  

And then there is the meetings....I'm always so afraid I will say the wrong thing....but 60 lbs heavier since 2006 Wedding it's so time to get this weight off for good!  I actually secretly would like to take 100 lbs off but I will be more than HAPPY ...extatic with 60 lbs LOL.  Anyone want to join us - even if you're doing a different program? My friend Laura is doing a tremendous job with Metabolife she's down to size 2 and 4 ..way to go Laura!!!

As we make the journey to our success....:::let's constantly encourage each other::::believe it or not ...a smile in a grocery store can make all the difference to those having a bad day :-)....Everyone here on this blog YOU are special to me...;Please email me if I can help you in anyway, huggs, Pamela AND HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!     p.s. If they can do it ...WE CAN DO IT!!!

Pink Glitter Face

I hope you all enjoy PinkglitterFace's art as much as I have since 2008.  We meet wonderful people in the art world....most give us Joy...this is one lady who's art you will enjoy purusing.   She  left a quote from Ms. Channing ....I hope you enjoy as well....may we all take time to "smell the Roses" this Year and focus on the good in our lives and settle the "unpleasant" and put things where they no longer "take our Joy"....We can make a CHOICE, choose Happiness.....once this choice is made :::::Your Beautiful Garden awaits you :-)...~~ Mmmmwwahhh, Hugggs, Pamela

"I will seek elegance rather than luxury; refinement rather than fashion. I will seek to be worthy more than respectable; wealthy and not rich. I will study hard, think quietly, talk gently and act frankly. I will listen to stars and birds, and babes and sages with an open heart. I will bear all things cheerfully, do all things bravely, await occasions and hurry never. In a word I will let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious grow up through the common." - William Ellery Channing
