I have been blogging at Yahoo! 360 for some time. I do like it for the most part but there are issues that I am having and they bother me a lot. First, I don’t like when it looks like some of my blogs have disappeared. I have over 200 entries in the last year… Continue reading A New Year – A New Start
I was back at Green Pepper Press’s Street Team and…. what a shock! Crusade #15 is where I live. About two years ago or so, I did a round robin altered book that had this same theme. Above is both the Crusade #15 banner and the spread I did for my altered book. If I… Continue reading Where I Live

The dictionary says: as·pi·ra·tion –noun 1. strong desire, longing, or aim; ambition 2. a goal or objective desired res·o·lu·tion –noun 1.… Continue reading Aspirations versus Resolutions

The difference is probably little but the one thing I know I need to do is look at this year’s progress, or lack of , before setting up for the new year. Why make the same promises to yourself,… Continue reading A Visit to 2007 Aspirations
As I have said before, I have been checking out Tim Holtz’s blog on a daily basis as he details and describes techniques in his “12 Tags of Christmas.” I have tried the techniques with items I have on hand and I have a lot on hand. My most successful try is the background for… Continue reading Finished Product – Pin

I picked dominoes as they are non-porous and the Adirondack Alcohol Inks that I have had for forever it seems. The image above… Continue reading What I was working on….
Okay, I am not a big game player. I occasionally pick up the WiiMote and bowl or play tennis but I don’t play Guitar Hero much. I occasionally threaten that I am going to ask for the Dancing with the Stars game for the Wii. So, my son who swears the Wii is his likes… Continue reading Leisure Suit Larry
