I AM The Luckiest!!!

Today is the day I am going to Donna Downey Studios
to take TWO classes with

Short story.....Last year while waiting for what was ENDLESS hours in the hospital waiting room for BEST HUBBY IN THE WHOLE WIDE WORLD to come out of surgery...I was doing mindless surfing on my tablet....when I stumbled upon Stephanie Ackerman's Homegrown Hospitality..{truely a GOD thing}
A peace came over me....I sent her a message....she texted me back....and I have been following her journeys ever since....Sooooo when I saw she was coming to DDStudios....just an hour and a half away....BEST HUBBY paid for my classes!!
These are a few pre-class mini art frames I made with Stephanie in mind...
I cannot wait to see what she inspires me to do today!!

MY ART>>>A Brand NEW Direction>>>>

Yesterday....I participated in
Vintage Market at the Park
in Greer, SC
For several months I have been leaning toward creating more mixed media art canvases....and absolutely loving the creative journey.
The show was quite successful...I had huge interest in my art...sold several pieces..was approached by 2 stores...and had inquiries about "commissioned work"
>>>>I am feeling affirmed in my decision...and my art>>>>
I did set my etsy shop in "vacation mode" for a bit...while I get my new web-site up & going...was able to register  StudioBeeCreations with, that was the first step


I am sooooooooooooo excited for what's next with
{I will keep you posted!!}

Owie...the Artist!!

We moved to South Carolina almost 3 years ago to be closer to our Grandguys...
Myles, Sam & Owen.
One of the BESTEST things is spending time with these sweethearts...
I have decided to JUMP BACK into scrapbooking...because I can use my creativity to document the moments in time.....I want to scrap, because it makes me happy.....I do not do chronological ( for me this would be a disaster...I will never be able to "catch up")
Last week....we were painting in their back yard...
Owie....the Artist
Super duper sweetheart....

I used a stamp from my Stampin UP! stash...(yep...still got ALOT of these)

...and THE KIT.....was a Gauche Alchemy....I know..I are saying WITW???...why is she buying stuff she possibly already has in her vast stash???( you were thinking it!..right?)
Well......lookeeee at all the goodies....oh my... wonderful punchinella...assorted flavors & sizes...unique papers...combos that forced me to think outside the box!..Loveeeeeeeeeeeeee!

...and I still have TONS of leftovers to add to my stash!!..I cannot wait til February's kit to get here!
Lots more pages, cards and Home Decor gifties...coming soon to my Etsy shop!

My Favorite Things for Scrap It Girl..

well...............better late than never!

Here is my contribution to Scrap It Girl's

January 31,2014 uber cool beaners is THIS!!????
Found on a "day trip date" with my hubby (Mr.Wonderful) a "yard sale"...on a very side/off road...
This was a file cabinet(slate grey in color) that we transformed into awesome storage ( in a yummy VALSPAR turquoise....yes, we work @ Lowes)!!
Measures 36"w x 19"d x 11"h
3 drawers are 10"w
...and the BONUS...they  were ALL filled with VINTAGE sewing patterns!
...for the steal of the day....$5.00!!
The picture does not do it justice (snowy day in SC)!....but it is by far a fun & YUMMY addition to my studio!
Currently I have it filled with my "I cannot even think of getting rid of these Stampin' UP! stamps!"
(you know what I mean!)
I plan on being better with my Scrap It Girl sure to check us out!!
