My holiday blinkie from Joelle

Joelle's blinkies are forever. My store however, contrary to what it says at the bottom of Joelle's blinkie, is now at Oscraps. (I didn't want to change anything cus it would sort of be like fidgeting with a Vermeer.)

It's IDSD! You know what that means right?

It's over. It was wonderful! Thank you all so very, very, very much. It looks like there's going to be a lot of fantasy artwork in the works after this sale. If you get in the mood, I'd love to see them. Post them at the Oscraps gallery. Or on my Facebook page. Or email them to me Thanks again and hugs.  đź’“

Oh yes, Oscraps is celebrating International Digital Scrapbooking Day with a storewide 40% off sale starting right this minute  (Friday October 2) and ending Monday midnight. Soo, if you've been waiting for a sale it'll never get better than this.


It was a frenzied summer. Most of the fires around here have been put out or calmed down so I’m spending as much time in the woods as I can.  Here’s me and Zookie chilling on the beach at Breakfast Lake. Congratulations if you can find Zookie, she blends right in with the early autumn golds.

Our Place - my new mini-kit

Hey! I just finished this little mini-kit with deer & blue birds & blossoms & backgrounds. The animal families who's homes are hidden around our place here were my inspiration for Our Place. The blue birds and blue jays are busy building their nests right now. I leave scraps of fabrics out for them which they pick through and fly away with to create really cushy and colorful homes. Our Place is for sale in my store right now for $4.  If you’d like to get it for free you can subscribe to Vicki’s 52 Inspirations program. You can read about it at my store. 

Here's some artworks from the gloriously amazing artists in my CT using this kit.

Has there ever been a better time to let your muse loose, lock yourself in your room, and make masterpieces?

While we're all keeping our social distances I do think this is the ideal time to let all those masterpieces out of our noggins that have been clamoring to get out.  Coincidentally the O’s 14th Annual Birthday Sale is this Friday March 20.  40% off everything, a free collab with a $15 purchase, and fun games in the forums every day.  Perfect timing I think.  Take a peek but don't wait too long, it's all over March 27 Friday night at midnight. .

 This has been the Winter of the Blizzard - best ever for hermits and skiers. Here's our front door. It swings out so I had to shovel my way around from the back door to dig it open.  It's snowing again tonight. I tried to take a picture of the sparkly shards of snow drifting over the face of the full moon but they turned out mostly black with a tiny white dot. Moon shots are tricky.
 When the snow is this thick everything is sooooo quiet. I can hear an owl hooting a half mile away down by the river. That's just beautiful. And scary since I'm babysitting Tzooki, my sister's chihuahua/yorki , who would make a decent midnight snack for any kind of owl.  Tzooki loves the snow, she rockets right over the top without sinking in just like a quail. This is turning into a real winter lover's kind of winter.

Here’s some of my kits (some old, some new) that should get you going.  If you do not already have these tucked away somewhere on one of  your hard drives you can still find them here at my Oscraps shop.

Wild Turkey Traffic Jam

They're back! Wild turkeys move into my back yard every winter. They roost up in the branches of the crab apple trees munching fermented crab apples. Every once in a while one of the turkeys will fall out of the tree and all the other turkeys will gobble hysterically. I'm not sure but it sounds like they're laughing.  Last week one of the families was out for a walk on the trail behind my house. I love walking behind them and listening. They never shut up.
