30-Day Coloring Challenge: Day 1 – Lilacs in bloom


Recently I have been trying to schedule in time for coloring with my Copics to continue to improve my skills and also to get back to making more products.  I was in luck when I came across this challenge online that I think is just what I need to jump start my mojo.

The Challenge begins today and ends on April 2nd.  All I have to do is spend a minimum of 5 minutes and color each day then share what I am creating. They don’t have to be finished cards or projects, just coloring. I like this because for me it takes the pressure off and let’s me play. So on some days I might have something complete and on others you will just see what I’m playing with. I will mostly be using my Copics, but I will also use my watercolor paint, watercolor pencils and distress markers from time to time. I hope by blogging and putting my stuff on Instagram, I will stay honest to the task.

Since all this snow is driving me crazy, I decided coloring flowers would make me happy. So I used a digital stamp from this awesome company called PowerPoppy. I don’t know if you remember me talking about Flourishes which was an amazing stamp company that went out of business last year.  I really loved the detail in their stamps and truly miss them. Well this company is on point too. The details of each stamp is so intricate. So lovely you could even leave them uncolored (blasphemy!!).

I also played with different color combinations.  So now I will know what colors to use for variety.


I think I will add glossy accents to the lady bug so she will pop and  of course wink of stella clear all over the flowers! Might keep these for reference and color up some for cards.

Happy coloring!

I bought these wooden hearts a while back with the intention of decorating them for my craft room.

I used the beautiful True Love paper from Basic Grey and some foam letters and flowers.  Love the final look.

I had some satin butterflies I bought months ago and finally got to use one. So cute.

I love this butterfly.

Rain…It’s finally raining!!!


I can’t believe I could be so excited about rain but after the winter with very little snow and the spring with no rain, as an avid gardener, this is a sight for sore eyes. All the shrubs and plants are sighing with joy right now. Nothing is drooping anymore.



There is something special about rain on the plants that is so much fun to capture. I love to see all the raindrops clinging to the flowers. I am the crazy lady that runs out after the rain and takes pictures of my plants.


I hope you enjoy seeing these photos I took today after our oh so welcome rain showers. I would love to see your pictures.
