Three Times a Charm! Oh My and a Scribblers Award

Greetings and Salutations!

I have been given the "Kreativ Blogger Award" by three very special people. Who, all have very different Blogs and that are fantastic at what they do. Please visit MarZel, Moriah and MidnightsDreams, to see what these ladies have been up to for this Fall Season. Thank you Ladies for bestowing the Kreativ Blogger Award on me and for thinking of me and putting a smile on my face! WE all work so hard on our blogs to keep them fresh, new and Kreativ and it means a lot to me to get this award! So THANKS AGAIN!

So here are the rules:

1. Thank the person who gave you the award.

2. Copy the Logo and paste it to your blog.

3. Link to the person who gave you the award.

4. Name 7 things about yourself no one would really know.

5. Nominate 7 "Kreativ Bloggers".

6. Post links to the 7 blogs.

7. Leave a comment on each blog so they know you nominated them.

7 Things About me:

1. I love 501's Button Down Jeans and White-T Shirts
2. I leave my tea bags in the sink instead of putting them in the garbage. (My husband laughs at me, and thank God he puts them in the trash) LOL

3. I'm extremely focused when working.
4. I love Fruit Loops, Java (Just Black), Green Olives, and Honey Nut Cheerios. Great Diet I have!

5. I do not sleep, and if I do I'm tossing and turning all night!

6. I don't watch TV, haven't in years, so don't ask me what's on the boob-tube. Instead, I listen to rocking music and watch movies in my Studio. I haven't been to the movies in years. I wait for the DVD to come out!
7. I can't sing for crap! But doesn't mean I won't keep stop trying! LOL

I am bestowing this award on to the following Bloggers:

Jacqui from

Now for the Scribbler Award. This award was bestowed on me by Zan from Wild At Heart Art. This gorgeous creator of the Monster Swap and Under the Sea Swap. Zan is simply amazing and she puts these unbelievable Swaps together for all of us to participate in and spends so much of her time making sure it's all in place. Please visit her blog to see her amazing stories she writes and all of the things that are going on in her life!

As part of accepting the award, I am supposed to name 5 other blogs that I feel are superior scribblers.

This will be a tough one, because there are many bloggers out there that deserve this award, and I'm sure if I don't list them here, they will eventually get this award, so make sure you pass this on to other Scribblers out there!

5 Scribblers:






Enjoy and keep KREATIV!

Today is Friday, Workshops to Discuss and WIPs!


We made it through another week , and I hope you are getting your creative juices flowing for the weekend!
As you all know, I've been spending time taking some workshops on line. With the overwhelming presence of "NING" so many artists out there have set up Ning Sites, and are offering such fabulous workshops. I'm actually taking quite a few workshops from various Artists. I have learned while taking certain workshops that if you pay for a workshop, you should be able to download the videos for future reference. The one's that I have signed up at Creative Workshops were great workshops, however due to the fact that you cannot download the videos and I had such a hard time viewing the videos (the stop and go), I will not be taking any other workshops over there. I have searched out workshops where the instructor has a presence on the site and allows you to download the workshops. I think it's important that if you pay for a workshop, you should be able to download it for future reference. I know life happens, and it's nice to know that when your schedule frees up a bit, you can still take the workshop without having it disappear on you! With that said, Monica over at, Nancye Williams,, Gritty Jane,, Suzi Blu,, and Marie, are absolutely fabulous instructors and artists and all of their workshops that these artists offer are freaking incredible and well worth the money! I might have gotten the websites wrong, so if you are interested in taking workshops, just click my badges on the sidebar of my blog and it will take you the Ning Group that you are interested in.

Right now, even though I'm signed up for numerous workshops, I'm concentrating on my workshops over at Suzi Blu's Les Petite Academy. (One at a time! LOL) I can't say enough about Suzi Blu. This little firecracker of an artist is incredible and so giving of her art. I have really enjoyed her workshops and learning from her. For someone who never tapped into drawing and painting before, her "Goddess & The Poet" workshop is absolutely amazing. The videos are clear and step by step instructions. Her PDF's are out of this world. If you are thinking about taking an online workshop, I would start with Suzi's Workshops. I know I have along way to go, but I'm looking forward to the journey.

Here are some of my Works in Progress from her Workshops that she is offering!

Now, onto Ornies...I love searching for new ornies on the internet that various artists create, and I'm very excited that Colleen over at has created a new line of ornies. Check her out other there. They are wonderful and have that LoopyBoopy Style! LOL

As Friday... I actually have a THREE Day Weekend ahead of me, WHOOOHOOO!!!!! I woke up this morning and walked into my studio to find this waiting for me!
As you can see, I WILL BE BUSY FOR THE NEXT THREE DAYS! I'm running a little behind in getting my works into some of the local shops here and galleries, so with that said....I'm off to brew another pot of JAVA...stay tuned...for the finished works...LOL
Have a wonderful and creative weekend and do what you love, whatever it is....JUST DO IT and GIGGLE WHILE YOU ARE DOING IT! LOL
Until next time...

DAG's -MMC Challenge for August was to create a Wand. I created THREE!

Here are my Wands that I created. Just in time for the Festivities!

I don't know what is...may be it's the Universe talking or may be it's just that you find and make the coolest friends through blogland and they always seem to be there for you when you have really crap days at work! Well, I came home and there it was...this beautiful card (check out the CROW) waiting to be opened up by ME! My friend Pattee from Odd Dolls sent me this awesome card from an Artist in her local area in Washington State. Thank you so much Pattee for making a crap day into a great NIGHT!
