Happy Friday! I’ve been getting back to creating again – finally! Finding time to do what my heart and soul NEED to do is just what the doctor ordered. And I do mean that literally. My doctor said it was … Continue reading
Wow! Been busy with family responsibilities, working on Larry’s childhood home, STILL trying to move all our belongings in and unpacking boxes… then I realize it’s been over TWO months since I’ve blogged. Bad Susie. I’m still around. Just preoccupied. … Continue reading
Just wanted to share today’s sketchbook journal page. This started with some late night scribbling and doodles last night, and I finished it today while listening to the pouring rain. (LOVE the sound of rain!)
I’ve added a couple new items to my Etsy shop!
I LOVE painting these beautiful tin nichos from Mexico. I painted this chapel nicho in bright colors – red, turquoise, green, and more – and on the inside I used the “El Corazon” card from a Loteria game (like Mexican bingo) on a bed of gold glitter (also from Mexico). To see more photos go to my Etsy shop (link above)!
This small wood angel ornament measures just under four inches tall and comes ready to hang with a twine loop. I drew bold whimsical flowers on a white background, making them pop by using purple, turquoise, orange, yellow, and green.
I have lots more projects in progress – I’ll be sharing soon!
‘Til next time…

Lawrence and I have been very busy these past few weeks, dealing with his mother’s health issues, and moving into his childhood home and trying to make it our new home. It’s been kinda chaotic – and honestly, pretty stressful … Continue reading
Life’s finally settling down a bit around here…my mother in law is currently in a nursing home receiving the necessary help in recovering from her broken hip and the problems that resulted from it (including a heart attack). Lawrence went back to work on Monday and I opened up my Etsy shops again…

As I wrote before, my mother-in-law is in the hospital. Today is day 12 of Lawrence and I spending our days (and some nights) at Kaiser Permanente with her. I started bringing my sketchbook with me recently, along with some … Continue reading
