Credit where credit is deserved

Hello to my dear blogging buddies,
Thank you for taking the time to visit me and leaving comments.  I can always count on my blogging buddies to give me a boost when needed!

Here is a photo of 'Le Journal' my very own personalised journal that my dear friend Kerryanne made for me some time ago.
Kerryanne has recently started an on-line journaling class, which made me get into second gear and back into journaling.

 Here are a couple of pages I've finished in my Journal. Oops, I forgot to take step by step photos however if you see something you like I'd be happy to explain it to you.
All paints and mediums are Jo Sonja products.

 Zentangles are not really my forte, but I enjoy doodling and playing around.
 My Mum returned last week and is going hung ho at painting up a storm in my studio!
This Buddha design is by Lee at ArtfulLee designed.


 OK, onto a bit of sewing now~I have to thank Vicki at
The Pickledish Patch and
Val at http://val-laird.blogspot.com/ for the cute designs I've made this quilt out of. Thank you ladies for being so generous and offering these free designs on your blogs. 

This is a lap quilt for my Mum.  I'll be giving it to her on Mother's day. Just the hand sewn binding to finish now.
Happy Mother's Day to everyone on Sunday xo

 This is my latest painting project~ Oops, not finished but I wanted to share the talent of others here. Another of Kerryanne's designs called 'Village Shops'.
 I did finish these cute bunnies in time for Easter but haven't had the time to blog.  These are also Kerryanne's design called 'Some Bunny Loves You'.
Have a wonderful, creative week. Hugs, Anna

How lovely to have your mum back for a visit. Looks like she has been bitten by the creative bug too. Didn't she do a wonderful job with Lee's canvas designs.

Well done to you too Anna on all your finishes.
Hope you have a lovely Mother's Day with your mum.
Hugs ~ Kerryanne

You're really busy! I haven't been around much lately due to an on-going project of de-cluttering the house and garage. But I see you have been making beautiful journal pages as well as sewing.

Hi Anna Rosa. Wow, you have been one busy lady. You've been painting and sewing and journaling and making Easter bunnies (which are adorable by the way.) It is wonderful that you are being so creative.
I'm out of town and not blogging this week, but I'm doing some blog visiting on my DH's computer.
Take care and happy creating!!
