Couldn’t See the Products for the Projects

Firt let me say DUH!!! I can’t even tell you why I’m so slow to notice. Well, now that I  know I’m going to get better at listing the supplies that I’ve been using.  

Any link I include for thr products I’ve used will not be an afflait link (unless specifically noted).  I’m not real good at listing multiple links at the same time, so the links I include will most likely link to where I purchased my product. However, I will try to include the names of other places you can find the products as well.

Today was a kind of errand day….yeaaaa. None the less her is my current face.



All in all I don’t have many nit picks on this practice chick…insane right…lol


Prisma Premier Water Soluble Colored Pencils (SSS)

I have been using Dylusion’s 8 x 8 cream journal (SSS )for all of the posts I’ve listed with my practice faces.

Love Working on Faces

First, my 3rd and last face from yesterday was bugging me. I didn’t like having reverted to sparse after moving on to creating a first face with hair. So, my first order of business was to update my previous posts last face. I realized yesterday but was too lazy to inset into yesterday’s post, but she looks kinda sad……definitely not purposely done.


I was feeling like I was kinda on aa face roll…lol So, here are the last 2 from today…as of right this minute. Unfortunately, as you can see I have some unnoticed misalignment on blonde. I bet you can’t guess how many times I erased and redrew the right side of her face and not digging blonde in general I dunno kinda looks like you are seeing blonde through water….hmm

No worries…..pencils, colored pencils and a journal….practice ahead—->

No More lil’ Egg Heads….Lesson 2

For some reason today I just decided to take the leap to lesson 2. I know it’s been awhile since I started working on the little egg heads as part of lesson 1. Incase anyone has a memory like mine the online class I’m working on is Beautiful Faces by Jane Davenport.

Here’s my first attempt at practicing larger features. I was rather happy with how she turned out, surprise…surprise.img_1347

For my second try on paper I decided to try and give her a bit more hair.  Not too bad, but she needs a little surgery on her right eye…lol Ahhhh, it is fine she’s young yet….lol


My last test drive for the night got the sparse hair, but in a return I gave her a touch of color. Thought this one ended up better than expected and that is always nice to see!!


Hope this post wasn’t too boring. Hope everyone had a nice weekend!

My Name is Jennifer & I…

My name is Jennifer. (Holding up right hand ✋️) I am hopelessly addicted to art & craft supplies!! Don’t get me wrong I LOVE❣️) the hands on working in journals and creating cards. No matter what if I’m not multi colored with splats of paint & mediums all over me I haven’t been my craft room.

When I say addicted I  don’t mean I just have a few stamps, rulers, markers, and a few pads of paper. I have a lot of paper which wouldn’t be too bad if I used it. I am a paper hoarder…I have some pieces of paper that are so beautiful  that I can’t bear to use….lol Absurd I know, but it’s the truth. I have had to apply very strict purcase rules to my art / crafting shopping or window Shopping. One thing that makes me weak is all the super neat stuff the companies are always creating!!!

So, you might be wondering why I’m blogging this today. Well, I have been forcing myself to not open any email that does not look like it is from family or a bill. Basicly I don’t open anything that doesn’t look legit.

I broke my rule…well actually I should say I’m going to brreak my rule.  I’m waiting to catch the Lawn Fawn mail box …that is a definite awaiting purchase. I unconsciously start flipping through contraband(lol) emails. Ohh man!! I couldn’t see and read enough I was beginning to create shopping carts st 2 or more companies.

It Boggles the Mind(at least mine🤔)

I must be walking around this world on auto pilot. Seriously, how else can I be doing this doing that and putting off those other things? Yet, if someone(or even if I just try to remember) I draw a total blank….like loud white noise blank.

taking into account the above information…….uhhh maybe I should say above non information.I find myself getting ready to try and put something amusing in a post because I realize my pockets are bare. I’m not feeling to bad because it’s only been a day or two. Everyone knows how life has to fit in somewhere…..right?

NO WAY!! My eyes feel like they were about ready to pop 👁👁 out of my head. It tells me it has been 10…yes…10 day since my last post!!! Granted I did visit and create another page that I’m deciding if I want to use.

JEEZ, what kind of blogger am I?? Well, we all know the reality of this cyber situation is I get lost. Where? I have no idea, but I’m pretty sure y’all probably guessed that too.

i hope to have something to offer something for anyone nice enough to check out my blog.

2016??…Where’d it Go??!

I’m thinking my last post of the year is going to be simple. Simple as in just a quick update of sorts and on to the countdown. Of course I am sharing some practice faces for the las 3 days. I decided to put them all in one post this time.

No big parties for me….nope not a party animal here. Hopefully everyone has a great time finishing up 2016 along with a designated driver at the ready.

Happy Crafting & Happy New Year to ALL!!

Everything Looks Better in Pink!!

OK, I know I can’t be the only person out there in cyber space that is as challenged as I am(or seem to be) at working in blog land.

I am just getting started on my slow and steady(hopefully) pace and I start to hit the cyber zone.  Then, just as things appear as if they are going forward…… BAM!! I hit one of those traffic calming zones(I know those are techniquely for motor vechiles) butttttt I think the analogy works pretty darn good In this situation. Don’t you??

You know these so called “zones” are jammed with speed humps, speed tables, tight turns and stuff so as to keep drivers from exceeding 5 MPH…Okkkkk maybe 10 MPH…lol. Sounds funny here, but when trying to cruise in your ride not so much…..you know it’s true.

By now I have computer eyeballs and am ready to pull my hair out…Grrrrr When I read the directions it sounded(read) so straight forward(mentally nodding my head)…ok yea I can do that.

I’m sure you can guess I have yet to be able to do this. Whats this?….you ask? What’s this extremely difficult look is it I’m attempting to create? I am supposed to easily add (yea right..grrr) decorative corners to my blog pictures…..just to jazz things up a bit. slapping forehead
