Welcome to My Mixed Media Altered Playing Card Series- Home Sweet Home!

I am still trying to get the swing of blogging.  I remember to post all of my videos to social media, and then I fall short of blogging.   

Part of it is that I just don't feel comfortable writing. I used to be a really good writer and won some awards when I was in school.  Unfortunately, seven years ago I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and one of the symptoms is brain fog and I think I may have ADD.. because I can't seem to concentrate writing or reading for any long period of time!  

So if you wonder why there is a big gap in entries on my blog, it's for that very reason!   

I hope this finds you happy and well!


Take Care!

Until next time..

Welcome to How to Make a Bookmark My Way!

What I Have I Been Up To?

I have been really bad about keeping up with my blog. I haven't written anything in quite a while.

Where do I begin?

Hmm.. I have been up to many things.  I started a Facebook Group called Mixed Media Altered Playing Cards. It's all about altering playing cards into something else. I am also about supporting other artists on Facebook and YouTube, so I let them post their videos and pictures of what they have been up to besides the altered cards.
If you are interested in joining here is the link:

Here is the video that started it all.

I have also been involved in other Facebook Art Groups that keep me busy between doing swaps and videos on my art journaling. This year I have joined Journal 52 and I have been recording my process of each prompt on my YouTube channel. If you are interested go check them out on my channel.  

As of today I have some other exciting news my good friend, and wonderfully, talented artist has announced her Design Team and I am one of them!

The Gina B Ahrens Design Team consists of Jeri Bellini of My Arts and Parts , Michelle Mitchell of Lady Blue Studios, Cindy Utter of Artsy Endeavors and me of Anneliese's Creations!

I am so excited and I can't wait to show you all what I have planned using Gina's amazing stamps and stencils. 

I will have to be more consistent with my blog now that I am on a design team. LOL!

Until next time.. toodles!
