I can't believe it's Monday already. I had so much planned for the weekend and only got about half of it done. I have not even had a chance to visit all of the wonderful Pink Saturday visitors yet. But as always, I will get to each one, even its Friday by the time I get it done. I so love Pink Saturday and appreciate everyone stopping by to visit and leaving wonderful comments.

Thanks for visiting and have a wonderful and safe week.

Warm Wishes, CindyLew

Happy Pink Saturday

Hey Bloggers, Happy Pink Saturday!!!!!!!!

I woke up and thought, hey I know I have something to do this morning:-) Oh.......... Its Pink Saturday time again.......I just love PS. But no snow, just rain:-( I was so hoping for snow this morning. Although I did want to go shopping today and that means a trip down the "hill" as we call it. Eventhough I live in the High Desert, I have to make a trip down a pretty good mountain side to get to nice shopping areas. So we call it, going down the hill. How funny.

Hope you all have a wonderful and fun Pink Saturday and Beautiful weekend, whatever the weather is like in your area.

The Weekend!!!!


I cannot believe it is the weekend already!!! Not that I am complaining, but..........

While searching the Internet I found some beautiful pictures of rooms that I just have to share. I have to say, I see a theme going on here and I am not sure why. I have been a pink lover my whole life. My bedroom is pink and my office/craft room is pink. I am not a girly girl, but just love pink. But for some reason I have been picking a lot of blues lately, even my blog is blue. What is up with that??????  Hope you EnJoy them!!!!

I usually try and attach the link where I found the pictures, but for some reason I did not attach it this time, but I really love this house. I could live here, blue or not. Let me know what you think.

We are supposed to have snow this weekend, so I am looking forward to it. Have a wonderful weekend!

A New Day! Another Week Gone By

Good Morning Bloggers;

I have been absent from blog land for a couple of days and still have not had a chance to answer everyone back from Pink Saturday back yet, sorry if I have not made it to your page, but I will throughout the week.

I had Monday off, but just had a really lazy weekend; didn't get as much done as I had hoped to get done. I had all these ideas of what I wanted to do for my art, but only got one thing done and that is not even done yet:-/ But at least I worked on something I guess. I think I have to many things going and it makes me feel like I am scattered, which I have an issue with anyway, so I am going to try and finish up some of my projects so I can focus better. Does anyone else have that problem????? I have so many ideas and I seem to start them all and never finish any of them.

My thoughts are with those of you who have family in New Zealand. I was just watching a couple of videos of the earthquake and it looks so devastating. I am truly sorry for the families and people who are suffering.

Have A Great Week!!!!!
Love & Light, CindyLew

Here is a picture that I did while sitting on my back porch. I used coffee for the face and just a little color, but I think she is cute.

Sketchbook Challenge Post

Hello Friends,

Finally got a picture posted to this months Sketchbook Challenge I still don't have my Moon and Sun picture completed yet, so I posted this one for now. It took me a couple of days to complete it because I did all the lettering by hand. All the DOTS to add texture and shading took a long time:-/, but pretty happy with the results. Please let me know what you think.

Of course I just had to use my new Visual Journal that I got this week from Strathmore. It is so awesome. I guess I could have come up with something a little better to put on those beautiful 140lb Watercolor pages, but it will do for now. Can you tell I just love this new Journal:-))

A Few Of My Favorite Books

The picture is not the best (taken with my iPhone-sorry), but I was just going through some of my books tonight and thought I would share some of my favorite books with you. I just got the newest of my much anticipated books this weekend. If you have not picked up a copy of Pam Carriker's new book (Art At The Speed Of Life), you really should........ She is an awesome artist and I love the book and of course her work. I have not had a chance to read the whole thing yet, but much like Kelly Rae's (Taking Flight) and Tim Holtz – Compendium of Curiosities books, it gives you step by step instruction on how to do the projects. Each page is beautiful, much like Kelly Rae's book. Of course it goes without saying that any and all books from Stampington & Co.  are as awesome as they come and I really love my book on Acrylics – Altered Surfaces. It has so much information in it that has truly helped me with my color choices. Of course I can't forget Journal Bliss by Violett If you have not seen her book or her art, you are in for a treat, she is awesome. She is one of 16 artists hosting a free online challenge. It’s called The Sketchbook Challenge - It is a yearlong project that you post your art work to. They give a theme at the beginning of each month and you contribute art that goes along with that theme. Each artist gives their own point of view on things and contributes in their own way to the challenge. I am guessing by now you have figured out that I am all about "FREE"….. Of course I just had to throw in the Visual Journal by Strathmore because I just purchased a few after signing up for the free online courses that they are offering at I don't know about anyone else, but I am a sucker for a good book:-0.

Well now that I feel like I am a walking talking advertisement for all of these books, I guess I will dig into Pam Carriker’s book and enjoy it while I can. I have just had the worst news from my husband tonight, but I have to keep going otherwise I will lose it. Maybe that is why I was looking through the books. He has once again gotten laid off from his job. After being off for almost two years, he had just gone back to work. He worked for a few weeks; got laid off for three weeks and has worked for a couple of months. Not long enough for us to get caught up on everything, but we are grateful that he has worked, because it has truly been the worst time in our 31 years of marriage. Now once again, he is laid off. I am not sure what to think any longer. But I trust we make it through this.

Love and Light, CindyLew

A New Week!

Good Morning,

Well another week is upon us and the weekend flew by again. I am so happy that I got to participate in my first ever "Pink Saturday"; I so enjoyed myself:-) and of course.............. Thank you and welcome to my new followers:-)

So it is back to the weekly duties of feeding my babies as soon as I get up and taking care of my little (not so little ) Rottie while my husband is off at work. Not that I am complaining, because after him being out of work for almost 2 years, I am just glad that he has a job; out of town or not. Lots of things to adjust to being by myself, but its all good.  I know many families that have fallen on hard times and have it much worse than we have, so I feel blessed that he found this.

Have a wonderful day and blessed week!

Warm Regards, CindyLew

I think these mountains are so beautiful with snow on them.

Happy Friday Everyone!!!!!!

What more can I say but............... Happy Friday!!!!

Eventhough its cold outside we do not have the snow and ice that most places have right now, so I am happy about that. Just cold:-) I can't say enough about the fact that the weekend is hear already.

Maybe I will come up with something for the Sketchbook Challenge this weekend and get it submitted:-/ I still can't get past the opposites thing, but at least I have a few ideas now.

Have a wonderful and safe weekend!!

I know this is the second post in one day................ But while I was blog hopping I found this beautiful blog and could not help myself; I just had to share!!!! Sooooo, pretty much I want my room to look like this:-/

Another Week Almost Over


I have been absent from my blog for a few days, but I have been busy. I cannot believe its Thursday already and Friday is around the corner. I am looking forward to the weekend:-)

For some reason I am having a hard time coming up with things to create for this months Sketchbook Challenge.  The theme is opposites!!!! and I don't want to do the usual good and evil thing or the black and white thing, so I will really have to think about what I can draw that fits the theme.

I just have to post this picture I found on the Internet. I just love pink as I am sure you can tell, but when I saw this, I could not help myself. Oh, and if you love cats like I do, check out the virtual cat on my sidebar. It is too cute. It purrs and follows your mouse when you roll your mouse over it. Tooooo cute!!!!

Have a wonderful and safe weekend!!!

Warm Regards, CindyLew
