Gelli Arts Print- Cat

I spent some time down in my studio. I just wanted to play. One of first loves is collage. I have been thinking about doing a cat collage for a while so here he is.

The other thing I have been thinking about is “being yourself”. Learning to love the person you are and not changing so other people will love you.  I read this online- One of the greatest challenges in life is being yourself in a world that’s trying to make you like everyone else.  Someone will always be prettier, someone will always be smarter, someone will always be younger, but they will never be you.  Don’t change so people will like you.  Be yourself and the right people will love the real you. You shouldn’t have to change who you are to be around certain people! God made you the way you are for a reason and loves you just the way you are….we all have different talents…we are all a work in progress (WIP). Celebrate the true you! catgelliprintbycs copy catgelliprintcloseup copy How we should treat others…framedbeyourselfquote   Thanks for stopping in…hope you enjoyed my post! Hugs, signk

Woo hoo- OWLS

I am going to make this short and sweet today since right now I am suppose to be packing for a long weekend away! I just wanted to share a couple of new necklaces with you.  First, I want to talk about your spiritual animals, you can goggle it an take a million and one survey’s to find out what your spiritual animal is. One of mine is the owl. I am not one of these jump on the band wagon type of gals since owls are cool I am going to do a bunch of owl pieces. Not that anything is wrong with that, it would be good marketing. I guess my point is that owls have a special meaning to me.

So, here are the necklaces:



I would love to hear what your spiritual animal(s) is! It’s sort of fun if you believe in this time thing or not!

Well since I am getting a little long winded now, I better fly off and finish packing.


Have a great rest of the week and weekend! Thanks so much for stopping in!

I am trying out a new Photo Challenge. I had been taking a break for Photo Challenges but I am ready to get my feet wet again! SMILE! I got to spend a lot of time out in nature this week to nurture my soul.

The prompts are Yellow and Light for this week.


I know this one cover both yellow and light but I just couldn’t be done that easy.

Life never seems to settle down long enough for me to think we are settling into a grove! Oh well, it’s life be in it! SMILE! Seems we always have something going on and things to do! It is making it more difficult for me to spend time down in my studio!

Sometimes we just need to play in the leaves!


I did steal a little time last night work in my studio. I finished up this little kitty painting. It’s 5 x 5 inches


I have to remember to trust the powers that be, I know he has a plan for me 🙂


Thanks for stopping in to visit me!
