Winter scenes of Spokane

The only real limitation on your abilities is the level of your desires. If you want it badly enough, there are no limits on what you can achieve.
Brian Tracy

The above pictures are of my home town....Spokane
These are my winter scenes of Riverfront was created when the 1974 world's expo was in our city.  Our town is the smallest city to ever host a world's fair!  My mom got us season passes...and we were not well off...we came from Hillyard(the scrappy side of town).  I was just a kid, but remember it so well.  We went there was so much fun!
It is now a gorgeous park in the middle of the city...with the Spokane river going through it and beautiful falls all around.

Fun Irish Brooches

Good Mornin'
It snowed this morning .....but it melted...yay!
Come on over to my Mrs. Tiddlemouse Etsy shop to see my new Irish pins.
I was making a tutorial for the Create it club last week and had to make some pins that are very similar...using alot of the same techniques.
They were a fun diversion.
Sassie Lassie is above.....I want to decorate for St. Patricks now!

I wanted to share with you what I use in my sewing room....when ironing wrinkly fabric or clothes.
It is linen water from the dollar tree(the price is right!).  It comes in lovely favs are rose and lavender.
Just spritz and iron.....suddenly your fabric smells fab and so does your sewing room.
Plus wrinkles are gone!

I put it in a jar on my ironing board so it doesn't fall over.  I am a wild iron fiend...not too
I am finally well and no more flu...yay.  Hope you are well too!

Happy Valentine's Day to you!

I hope you have a Valentine's day filled with love!
I woke up to a big heart box full of Chocolates and a red tea rose plant. 
I got my husband and my daughter a valentine bag (from dollar store) and filled them with goodies(gotta love costco too).
The dollar store is great....I recommend going there if you need last minute gifts.
They have tons of candy, cute sacks, balloons, and assorted cards.
Even if you just get some stuff is a huge savings.
Later we are having heart shaped pizza from papa Murphy's pizza.....yay!
The tutorial for making the above project is Here on my blog!

Magic exists

Magic exists. Who can doubt it, when there are rainbows and wildflowers, the music of the wind and the silence of the stars? Anyone who has loved has been touched by magic. It is such a simple and such an extraordinary part of the lives we live.
Nora Roberts

She lingers where the flowers sway

Hey everyone!  I hope you are having a terrific Tuesday!
I have been painting the last couple days....having fun like a little kid. 
The above painting collage is: She lingers where the flowers sway.
This is a combination of acrylic paints, inks, and papers.
I actually added more to the painting after taking this picture...I was on a roll. 

I love the blues and maroon reds.  Usually I am a pink person....just drawn to pink I guess.
My mom loved red....that was her color.
I have a sweet painting....not quite done...which has the Eiffel Tower in it.
I will share that soon.
Ta Ta for now!

Cat quote of the week - catnip

Here is my "Lucky"....modeling again!
He is pretty fierce when it comes to catnip...his first step is the rip the catnip bag open and then eat it, roll in it, and look really stupid!  LOL
Usually he is very camera friendly, but this time...he did not want the camera around.
I gotta give an inspirational quote:
Keep in mind that the true measure of an individual is how he treats a person who can do him absolutely no good.
Ann Landers
Happy Monday!
