I was on Pinterest, looking at my boards, oohing over my pins!
I kind of ADORE Pinterest! Anyways, I came across a board
where I share my creations.
I realized quickly, too few of the things I have made were on that
board! Sad to say even fewer were shared here!!
So I decided to share one of my most fave creations!
My Jack and Sally wall hangings! <3
I LOVE Disney, and even if it were not Disney, I would still
LOVE The Nightmare Before Christmas!
Tim Burton is an Epic human and I adore almost everything he makes!
Another plus? My dad, rest his soul, also LOVED The Nightmare Before
Christmas, we had that and so much more in common.
I miss him SO very much!
So on with the post....
Here is that project, two coffin shaped wall hangings and a coffin shaped
chalk / message board. Each of these were bought on clearance at the end
of the Halloween season. Yes, I do shop for home decor during Halloween.
I AM THAT GIRL! Muhahahah! <3

I hope all who view enjoy what they see, and maybe even feel inspired.

                        Stay blest-

So I was. Craving some creativity. Wanted kind of a challenge.
Then I decided to go looking through my stash.
I started crafting seriously back in 2005, when my amazing mom
gave me a scrapbook kit for my b-day.
Then I could not have hoped to imagine to have the stash I have today.
I feel so blessed, and over stimulated at the same time! LOL
As I was saying... so wanting a challenge I looked in my stash and
came across a kit? A 7 gypsies kit, to be exact. The colors are a challenge.
The paper is a challenge! And now I am trying to think up what I can do
with this. It seems like a mini book kit? A diy journal kit MAYBE?!
All I can find in way of a name for the kit is "Grid It"...
Challenge accepted?! I will be posting a follow up to this rant just as soon as
I get started on doing something with this kit.
Hope everyone is busy being blest!

Pink Madness.

So I have been M.I.A. from this blog.
I have missed it! Life was super-crazy in 2016!
I rarely if ever crafted it was emotional, it was ugly!
So here it is 2017 and not only have I been crafting,
I am making my first post here!
I have pics. Creating, posting, sharing pix! <3
17 is one of my fave numbers!

So here we go... I am sharing what I called pink madness,
I called it pink madness because it was nearly driving me crazy!
Also I am a bit cra over the color pink!
I wanted to bring my layering game way up, and wanted this to look
a little shabby. I started with a basic plaque I found at the Goodwill.
I wish I had taken a before pic!
Anyways... here is when I was already into the project BUT not too
deep in and thought to get a pic!

I was totally loving this... BUT then I made some changes...

At that point I thought I LOVED it... BUT it was missing a title... maybe a quote?
Then this was the FINAL result!

So with this I was super happy. I never have too much of an idea what I will end up with,
this had ben through a few changes. I honestly love how it ended up looking in the end.
Thank you to those who take a peek at what I am doing! Hope this inspired you, and made
your eyes smile! Have a very blessed weekend!   Love - Dezz

He was perfectly human. I love him flaws and all.

The beginning of 2014 I lost a VERY precious light in my life.My Grannie McNew, I lost her in January... and in the last month of 2014, I lost my dad. I knew I loved him, I just never knew how much until he left.
I never have missed someone so much in my life... I realized the things I shoulda or woulda said if I had the chance again. I woke up today from a dream that my dad was in. He didn't say a word.
I was not going to say anything to him, and then I remembered what I needed to say to him!
I walked over and looked him right in the eyes and told him, that I love him SO much, and that I LOVE his smile. He smiled, and then I woke up. I felt a release. I felt peace. I felt loved.
Today is my Grannie's b-day, she would have been 91 years old. I miss them both and love them very much!  Please let the people you love know that you love them. If there are walls up just say what you need to say anyway! Life is so very short!
I will miss them every day until I am with them again in heaven. I hope and pray 2015 is so much better than 2014 was.

More human than human...

I have decided that I am sick of many, many, things in my life. One of the top 4 is disrespect directed towards me. In any form.
I knew a long time ago that people only do to you what you allow them to do!
Somehow, somewhere along this journey of my life I lost sight of that?
I have heard things I never would have dreamed,  I would have heard said to me.
I have had things done to me I would have swore 14 years ago... would never have been done to me!
I also myself have said and done things that I am very ashamed of!!
Maybe I justified doing and sayings those thing because it was in retaliation?
There is REALLY no justifying things like that on either end of the situation tho.
Humans make me sad, I feel so very human today. Perfectly imperfect and broken.
If you are reading this say a prayer for me. <3
