Santa for President!




Santa may never be late, but I am! So off we go for the weekend…er, um and beyond post!

No matter how you feel about Santa Clause he is pretty unavoidable is some shape or form. I never really remember much about Santa growing up, and as a  mom felt uncomfortable simultaneously telling the truth about Christmas while also perpetuating a lie about a jolly, old fat man sneaking into our home and leaving gifts.


Why, Enthusiastically, Dawn?


Sometimes I really do amuse myself. It is usually during these times, I simultaneously embarrass my daughter but, hey, that’s what mothers are for. I remind my 13-year-old that it could be worse. Much worse. At least she isn’t in the local Drugstore with me three aisles over yelling, “Pooh, Pooh, where are you?” No, that was the embarrassment I suffered and survived. She really has it easy. Because, I am actually really funny. And I totally agree with myself on that one.


Post Christmas Video Attempt and Why I Am Not a Public Speaker

12/27/13-update: I am working on the video if you are unable to see or hear it! Sorry for the inconvenience, I am really still learning all these gadgets! 

                                                             Here is the YouTube Link

Happy day after Christmas, friends. I am just experimenting with my new tablet. I have no idea what I am doing but I am learning. This video is my first and it is a very informal candid what it actually is like to see me first thing in the morning! I thought I would practice, shamelessly with you all. I suggest scrolling to the bottom and pausing the Beach Surf loveliness to hear my so soft -HA- voice.

One of the biggest reasons I write instead of speaking is because …well watch the  above video and you will understand. Then the 20 second video below, says it more succinctly…

Feel free not to share…consider this our little moment. 
Dug understands me. And I him.
Praying the day brings you love, peace and smiles.

It’s Almost Shark Week (ICAD Update)

Shark Week Tribute
OK, so we are in the Home Stretch in this ICAD challenge. I have been collaging and messing with paints. Literally messing. Unlike the amazing art I see at the Daisy Yellow Facebook Page. However, I do not let me artistic lack hold me back…NO WAY! I am loving every minute of it!
Enter Loverboy flashback…
Due to my hectic Beach Schedule, I usually post only a little on the FB page. 
Summer’s short after all. But, I am daily inspired by those who post their beautiful efforts regularly.
Thanks for taking the time to peek at these mini canvases. 
Art really is therapeutic!

Christmas in July (ICAD Update)

Christmas in July #1

My latest ICADs seemed to embrace a theme. Winter. Since we have been having a steady stream of hot days, my mind wandered to cooler themes. I had some vintage pictures and sea shells I integrated, also a few stickers via Creative Memories. 3 white beach pebbles account for our Snowman- perhaps he should go by “Rocky” not Frosty! I used Stampin’ Up stamps for the July letters. Acrylic and watercolor paints, sharpies. Oh and I almost forgot…SPARKLES!

Christmas in July #2
