A 15 year old girl made this.

This puts to shame the output of a number of Hollywood producers
and/or directors.
All I can say is WOW!!!!!!!
This film was made by a 15 year old girl. It is the hottest thing on the internet today.
Lizzie Palmer who put this YouTube program together, is 15 years old.
There have been over 3,000,000 hits as of this morning.
In case you missed it, here it is.
Watch all of it.......and, pass it on!!

I just got notification that two of my digital paintings were featured on Digital Whisper FRONT PAGE!
I am so excited because I didn't think they were very good.
What an inspiration this is !!


As you know Digital Whisper has challenges each week. These past few weeks they have been Digital Painting. It is really hard for me to sketch anything. I am not an artist in that way.

We were to take a photo and make it look like a painting.
This was my original photo.

This is after I painted it! It is very hard to do this and I need much practice but it is fun and as usual Digital Whisper's Challenges are helping me to learn.

This is an abstract painting using digital watercolors

This turned out to blurry. Back to the drawing board :)

Hope you all have a great week.

Beef Steak Pie, Chocolate Bread Pudding with Toffee Rum Sauce

This is different for me. I am not a cook but recently my hubby ask me to make a meat pie he had seen on the Food Network.
This is the pie. I made it from scratch! Me, I did it!
I also made his favorite bread pudding with a different kind of twist.
It is a Paula Dean recipe and she used chocolate chips in it and topped it with Toffee Rum Sauce.
You can find these recipe's on the food network site.

I also wanted to thank my other ATC participants Tiffine, Annie and Miranda Rocha. These are their ATC's which I received today.

I seem to have problems getting people to sign up for my swaps but I will keep trying for those like Tiffine, Annie and Miranda who love to swap ATC's.

Digital Painting

The challenge this week at Digital Whisper was Digital Painting. We were to use our paint brushes which were provided in the challenge to download. The tiny picture is the original image and we were to digital paint that image.

This is my pear painted digitally from scratch.

The next challenge was to do an abstract painting using the liquify filter.

Here is what I came up with.

I painted this using Photoshop paint brushes and then liquified it !

This was an image of Aphrodite. Liquified she is a strange looking character :)

This is was hard and unfamiliar but fun and educational. I learn so much from Digital Whisper.
If anyone is interested in joining Digital Whisper they have many different groups. Just click on the Digital Whisper icon at the left of my page.

Thank You Jesus! Alan's biopsy test shows NO MEYLOMA cells.It showed lymphoma cells which is part of his leukemia/lymphoma. This is what we were praying for. So for now there will be no bone marrow transplant or chemo therapy.

We will take one day at a time and hope the doctors can figure out why his blood pressure is so high and why he has so much protein in his kidneys. For now we are safe. Thanks for your prayers everyone.
Thank You Jesus :)

My Latest Digital Collage

I created this tonight for an ATC Partner over at
The theme was One Color. We had to make an ATC that called out one color when you look at it.
What color do you think of when you see this?

No Results

We were supposed to get the results of the biopsy today but they are not in yet.
I had a feeling they wouldn't be but for those of you that are waiting to hear we have no news yet.

I will post the results as soon as I get them.

Keep us in your prayers please
