Yes, my life is in transition. I am now getting used to life as a widow. What will this bring? Time will tell.

Flutterby Butterfly


My very colorful butterfly fairy digital collage.

I wish my ample curves looked half as good as theirs.

They are by Free Spirit and I'm pretty sure they were freebies.
The colorful clouds are from my  misc collection.

Digital Collage X3

For some of his freebie funky fonts

My first collage follows the style of his pinup collages.

This more somber collage is in the style of his DJ Hell collages


This one just took on a mind of its own.   I guess you would call this
a little bit Eduardo and a lot me.

The small canvasses that I used are by Angie Young....a Facebook freebie.

Sandra Bullock Makeover Steampunk Style

Steampunk Makeover

Our challenge was to use someone that we knew.  It could be celebrity or family, etc.

Sandra Steampunk

Many, many layers later and Sandra's makeover is complete.
I can't remember exactly what I used but for a couple.....

The Fish are Jumping

I guess I could call my cat Tuna Juice because
he loves the juice drained from the tuna can.
Sometimes I call him Toodles just for fun.  He also gets
called you !@##$* cat at times.
His real name is Red.
Ya gotta love him.

Messy Me


The beautiful paint smudges, drips and drabs are by Binty Designs.

It was fun creating messily but living with a mess is
totally different.  Busy, busy, busy with vacuum, mop and dust cloth.

Another Rainy Day in Old London Town

London Calling

I was lucky enough to visit London a few years back.
  We packed for rain but I can't
remember opening our umbrella once.    Perfect weather for a
perfect trip.

Alone in my Thoughts


I used an image of Rodin's Thinker and stuck him
up there all alone in thought.

I think this is my third try to come up with something decent.
The map was googled and the rest of the images are from my collection.

Happy Dance

I'm doing my happy dance.  The day is gorgeous and sunny,
I've had a fresh cup of coffee and read the Sunday paper and
I'm making lots of headway in the cleaning out of some (quite a few)
unwanted things.  My efforts will make for some happy shopping 
for Goodwill shoppers.

Theme - Happy

Hats Off to You

This week at Crazy Amigo Challenge  the theme is

I can't believe what came to mind first.
I've heard of this group but I can't remember ever
hearing them.  Not my style.  Their hats did intrigue me, though.

Devo Hat

I love this cute hat model

Flamenco Dancer


One of the first live performances I ever went to was
a Ballet Folklorico performance in Sacramento CA.
By the time I left, my blood was sizzling and I was hooked.

Ballet Folklórico de México (1970)

During the years that I lived in LA I spent many an evening
at the El Cid dining and watching flamenco.

We would walk down the long steps from Sunset Blvd into
an evening of good food and wonderful music and dance.

Blue, Blue and More Blue


I never dreamed that I would ever use blue ivy.
Ha!  Well, here it is in all of its blueness.

Summer Sky

This is right on for our weather here in the summer.
We are always getting storms.   Most come through very quickly
but some do linger and can cause all kinds of havoc.
In fact, just this morning about 3 a.m., we had a short but intense storm.   
The sky was all bright with lightening flashes and noise of
thunder.  I always like how the noise of the thunder seems to roll out to the ocean.

For this I layered two photos and came up with a
City in the Clouds.

 Weather or Not
Summer Skies

Another hot day for us but thank goodness we have our
a/c.  I feel so sorry for all of those that have lost  electricity.   I hope all is back
to normal for you soon.

Dream Vacation


I don't have to go that far to enjoy something like this, lucky me.

Happy 4th of July

All That Glitters

This is how our sky will look tonight. I think every pier along our
stretch of the coast is having fireworks. Our little community
is having their annual Independence Day Boat Parade at the inlet. 
At 1 p.m. F-16s of the 77th Fighter Squadron "The Gamblers" will do a
flyover along the SC coast. They begin just north of us in North 
Myrtle Beach and fly down the coast to Charleston and Hilton Head.
That should be a sight to see and I'll be watching.

It sure wouldn't be a bad day to be a mermaid.
Our 92 degrees today is going to feel like 108 degrees.
I'm melting already.

Heart of the Orient

Jim Dine Heartwork

I've found a new to me digital kit artist that I really like.
Her name is Linda of Lindalous Scrap Spot and she can be found here.
I used images from the Asian Drama.
