During the Christmas period I somehow got obsessed with this idea of making my own bath salts after purchasing and reading a copy of Willow and Sage - another publication by Somerset which as usual is beautiful and informative. It is all about creating your own bath salts, soaps, creams etc. etc. I don't know how they can make a whole magazine about this but they did and I love the issue I purchased. So apparently it is really easy to make your own bath salts so off I went to purchase - epsom salts, essential oils and then from... Continue reading

Something new I have been working on ... Hope you are having a good, creative day too! Cathy Continue reading
I was so afraid to hit the publish button on my new blog format. I so hope you like it and find it easier to get to everything. Although it should be self-explanatory (I hope) let me just take you around a bit. - So I would suggest that you go to my Connect section first right up there at the top on the right. I also prepared a video to meet you "in person" if you prefer that to reading the whole section. ; ) - Next you should go to my tabs at the top to the tab... Continue reading

I have been meaning to share this with you for the longest time. I had started writing down some funny rules for the house when I moved into the condo in July. Just funny rules and rules that made me smile and I hoped would make other people smille. I finally typed something up and got it in a format that I liked and here it is below. I am also including a downloadable version for you if you would like your own copy. Enjoy! Here is a downloadable version for you. Download House Rules Continue reading

The New Year is here - it's 2015. I have so much I want to share with you in the next few weeks of this year. I like picking a word for the year but I am still thinking on it. Have you picked your word for 2015? I wanted to remind you that on January 5th Part 4 of my Watercolor series starts and we will be tacking "objects" in watercolor. I do hope you join me for this part of the series. You can still of course register for any of the 3 previous part as well. All... Continue reading

I hope you are all getting ready for Christmas and that you are just about done your shopping and baking. I am ahead of the game this year and have everything ready as of today.

Let me know who you want to send the gift to and I will make sure that the recipient gets all the class info on the 5th! Wouldn't... Continue reading

It's been a really long time since I spent a day just playing. Just creating for the sake of creating and trying out things that have been on my todo list forever. These were very very difficult to take pictures of but I hope you can make them out and see what I did here. This is something I have been meaning to try for a long long time! These are actually very simple to do... (see below for diy instructions) These are chandelier crystals - you know the kind that hang from chandeliers. They are were clear when I... Continue reading
