I have had a little break from blogging and feel really revitalised and my muse really needed a holiday......I have been enjoying the sunshine but that was short lived..oh the british summertime eh? Matthew fractured his wrist 2 weeks ago but he is doing well and is now sporting a nice blue cast after having a new one put on. I decided to to get my soldering items out and kick start my creativity whilst listening to my ipod ( and the oh so amazing Mr Jim Morrison.....oh if you didnt know I am a huge Doors Fan) and creating bottle art and have the lovely smell of beeswax in my studio....and believe me it smells oh so wonderful. I love the image of this little girl I have so many great images sometimes its really hard to decide which one to pick. Well I have so many blogs/emails to catch up on.........
I must say a big Thank you to Dee for giving me the Makes my heart smile award Thanks so much Dee. Thanks for stopping by here.
Where does the time go........ I have been having fun messing about in photoshop and just generally playing around which has been great, I have some new projects to work on and also last week finished the last book in the Twilight saga which was a fantastic read. Currently working on some Art Bottles my new addiction and also a canvas Shrine for a project over at Paperwhimsy.
I have spent this evening playing with my Melt Pot and Soldering Iron.........I recieved my mesh and wax today so couldnt wait to get creating. The wax smells so lovely. Both bottles availble in my Artfire Shop. Thanks for stopping by.
Today I have been creating this canvas, It really wasnt what I expected to turn out but I am pleased with the results. I really do love this quote....and the image is also a favourite of mine and yes I know I always say that......The size of this deep edged canvas is 5"x5". Inspired from an Online workshop with JoAnnA Pierotti. This canvas is available in my ARTFIRE Store. And please stop by my suprize giveaway here,

If you know me well you will be aware I have been suffering with my Back and Leg since last May. I saw my specialist on Tuesday and after me pouring my heart out he explained to me what is causing the pain in my Leg and the only way to cure the problem is by having surgery on my back....I have to have another MRI scan again which I am dreading..but needs must so if it is a little quiet here........
I have been busy working on some great projects over at PaperWhimsy - A Tussie Mussie(above WIP) project and a Rolodex card swap I am having great fun with these. Its half term here so I have been busy trying to keep Matthew entertained which has been so great he is growing up so quickly. Thanks for stopping by here.

I must say again if you havent taken the online workshop you simply must. The images are all Paperwhimsy. These bottles are available in my Artfire shop now. I will be working on some more really soon. Thanks so much for stopping by here.
Well it has been so quiet over here at Whimsy Dreams hasnt it?..........so whilst I have had my nose into Eclispe for most of the time, I have been creating aswell I am so excited to share that I sold my very first pieces of Art over at ebay last week. What a great feeling that is....for me anyway. I have been lucky enough to take some wonderful workshops with JoAnna Pierotti from MossHill Studio....amazing workshops and JoAnna is such a great teacher so you must head over if you havent already.
A BIG Thankyou to my lovely friend Dawn she sent me some amazing tiny canvases last week, she knows I love anything like this. This pendant was inspired from 'Collage Mossy style' Workshop I took with JoAnna. Thanks for Inspiring me JoAnna.
