June Birthday Contest Giveaway – Contest closed!

Hello my friends!



“When you get the choice to sit it out or dance, I hope you dance”

Just to let you know i use the random number generator to choose a number – i wish i could give you all a prize.

I am 61 today and in celebration of living 61 years and to thank you for your support and love over the years I am having a contest giveaway!  Yay! You might be wondering why i am showing you my ear?  Well my wonderful son and daughter-in-law gifted me with hearing aids – you can’t see them can you? They are so skookum. Now i can hear layers of things i could never hear before, can hear conversations going on in the cubicles at the bank and don’t have to keep saying WHAT???? It’s so cool – and to think i was so reticent to get them and admit i have a hearing loss.



Birthday Contest

I’ll be giving away an original illustration (i made inspiration cards with these) – Believe, A “love who you are” dog tag necklace, a set of 10 postcards and admittance to my online workshop Journal Bliss!   The workshop is on art journaling and is full of techniques, tips and tricks.

In order to enter the contest please let me know in the comment section of my blog on this post what your favourite quote is. I’ll be drawing one lucky winner Wednesday June 24  at 9 am PST.  Good Luck!

Birthday Bike and a Holiday! Hooray!


Here i am with my BRAND new vintage look bike!  I love it – my family pitched in to buy it for me for Mother’s Day and my birthday! 


It’s an Electra Koi design and has so many wonderful features – a fun bell that works, a funky bike seat, detailing on the fender and chain guard, gypsy grips (how cool is that?) and even the wee thingy on top of the pump nozzle has a flower design!  Sweet!  I still have to buy a wicker basket for it – i envision riding my bike on the quiet streets in White Rock – trying to avoid the busy ones.  I have an idyllic vision in my mind – i see myself riding in France in little villages with winding roads with a French baguette coming out of the basket along with fresh veggies spilling over.  I see little old ladies donning black and grey dresses waving as i ride past ringing my bell!   You REALLY do see that in some of the French Villages.

Sketchbook Challenge – Pathways

I have been remiss and dropping balls on a number of things – i REALLY NEED a Virtual Assistant.  Does anyone know of a good one?  Here is one of the projects  i have not kept up with – THE SKETCHBOOK Challenge blog – the June Challenge was Pathways – what a wonderful prompt!  I’ll bet you can come up with tons of Journal Page ideas for that one?  Do hope on over to the blog – there are some fabulous posts there on what the participants are up to – such a variety of talent there!

Going on Vacation!

Starting on the weekend I’ll be on holidays for 2 weeks.  Mr. G’s family is coming from S. Africa for a visit and also his daughter is getting married.  Lots of celebrations and fun stuff happening soon!  Because of all of the activity i won’t be blogging much – if at all.  I might post the occasional photo for you to see what we are up to!  We will also be going to Desolation Sound – the gorgeous place we went to last summer when we kayaked? So I am really excited about that – doing a happy dance!

And the Winner is……

The winner of my birthday draw is…. Brandy! Congratulations Brandy – please contact me with your address so i can mail the goodies off to you!
