Hi Friends!
Okay, okay, I know it has been almost another year since I posted a new post. 
I have been so busy and not particularly happy with my latest photos so just haven't posted anything.
I recently purchased a new camera and I am loving it! It is a Sony Cyber Shot and the picss are amazing.
On May 19th I became a Grandma for the 2nd time. My new little granddaughter's name is Riley and she is just adorable! My two granddaughters are 15 years apart and I couldn't love anyone as much as I love them! Grandchildren are so special! Alyssia, my 15 year old granddaughter calls me "GoGo" which I love! I am attaching some a really cute pic of Alyssia and Riley.

I spent part of the summer in Colorado and certainly didn't want to return home to our high 90 degree temperatures. The warmest the temperature we had in Colorado while I was there was a walloping 76 degrees!  Can't wait until I call it home permanently.

In the meantime, I have returned to counseling! Woo Hoo! I am working out the Educational Service Center in Amarillo. I am currently the counselor at Happy High School in Happy, TX. My duties at this moment are to make sure the Juniors and Seniors are on track for graduation, alerting them to available scholarships, and financial aide. Anyone that has had a graduating Senior knows exactly how frustrating this process can be. Hopefully, I will be helpful in getting this process rolling. This poor school district hasn't had a counselor in quite some time and their last counselor although very dedicated was 86 years old when he was forced to resign due to a heart attack. I told my sister I thought they were pretty happy in Happy that I was there and she said, "Of course they are! You can see, hear, and walk by yourself!" She then just FONTFLHBO! LOL!
I have been taking a fabulous class at Color Me Creative Classroom taught by the wonderful Marie Gamber called Creative Backgrounds! Marie's backgrounds are so gorgeous! Marie's first video is Marbleized Backgrounds. I am attaching my first attempt at my marbleized background. I colored up a cutey by Some Odd Girl. I love the Denver BRONCOS if I haven't mentioned that before. I colored her up in Bronco colors and I am also using her as my avatar on Fantasy Football. Yes, I am an avid football fan. I was like the "Hump Day" camel, asking everyone what Thursday was! LOL! I would tell everyone, "It is NFL opening day! Wooo Hoooo!" 

I have made a 2nd attempt at the marbleized background. This cute little image is "Joy" by Sugar Nellie. I call her Sophie as she looks so much like my little niece when she was about 4 years old. I just love her!

Please leave me a comment or two about what you think about my little Bronco Cheerleader and Sophie. I love to hear your critiques good and bad! 
Have a fantastic day!


  1. They are both beautiful! Colored so beautiful and the backgrounds are also beautiful. I've been thinking about taking that class but never finished hair class. Glad to see you blogging again.

  2. The granddaughters are both beautiful to!

  3. Awwww.... thank you so much Marie! I am trying to make a pre-New Year's Resolution to keep the blogging up! I am loving the class! I still need to finish the Hair Class and Copic Class 5! I am working on it! So good to see you!

  4. Oops! So sorry Linda! I don't have a clue why I typed Marie other than her class is on my mind. I really appreciate the compliments! I just enrolled in the hair class and still have class 5 to finish. I have missed coloring so I am trying to really surround myself with the copics! Great to see you!

  5. Oh your cheerleader is fantastic and so is the little girl. I love your coloring too. I am just now starting to collect copics pens but do have a few of other companies alcohol markers which I use too. I found you on the CMC site and saw where you wanted to follow others so I am going to follow you if the google will let me. Been having problems with it tonite. My website is and my name is Linda.
