Imagine That: I’ll Be Missing You

In The Studio

And I will!

Today on the Imagine blog I’ve got another interactive card–this time a shaker card–that uses both our color challenge as well as the new Dewlet dies as stencil and shaker window. Make sure to check out the video to see the whole process.

This card has another layer to it, though: it’s my final project as an Imagine Artist in Residence! It’s been a fabulous three years on the team and while I’ll miss them all terribly, I chose not to apply for the 2019 team (their’s or anyone else’s) so that I can spend more time on my own projects.

I hope you’ll follow along here on the blog, my instagram page, and–most of all–my YouTube channel to see what I have planned for the upcoming year. I’ll be announcing my personal challenge right after Christmas and I’d be thrilled to have you participate, too!

Stay tuned for more and have a creative day!


Off on Our Next Adventure!

Third Time Wife

Well, Hive, the time has come for Roadie and I to offer one last wave from the rear view mirror as we head down the road to see what’s around the next bend in the road!

Just over a year ago (I don’t think I will ever forget, especially considering I got a speeding ticket the next morning when I was paying more attention to mentally composing my intro post than my speedometer–oops!) I was announced as Miss Road Trip and just under 6 months ago, Roadie and I were married in our intimate outdoor ceremony at Honey Lake Plantation.

It has been an honor and a privilege to share our wedding with the members of the Hive. I thank each and every one of you who have left comments on my posts–seriously, it was always a thrill to see the notifications in my Inbox–and for the encouragement and occasional commiseration they held. I hope that my posts were informative and encouraging in turn–if even one person found one of them useful I’ll consider my time here well-spent.

Special thanks go out to my fellow Honeymoon Generation blogging Bees–I’ve enjoyed sharing this journey with each of you and value the friendships we’ve built over the last year and then some. If anyone is on the fence about applying to blog for Weddingbee, I say do because you just never know what will come of it!

Life has stayed very much the same for we Road Trips since the wedding–there have been little shifts that are hard to pinpoint but you still notice, and I fully admit that being able to call Roadie my husband still gives me a little thrill. But big changes are now on the horizon!



After several months and 7.5# of paperwork (unfortunately not an exaggeration), we just recently closed on a 1910 Folk Victorian that’s a bit of a fixer-upper but perfect for us, just over the FL/GA border. We’ve spent the last two weekends taking care of some odds and ends around the house before the roofers get started (poor thing was a bit neglected when we found her, but we’ll soon fix that) and are looking forward to restoring and renovating our Pink Gingerbread Dollhouse for the foreseeable future!

Of course I’ll be blogging the process, along with various other facets of living a creative life, over on, in case anyone wants to follow along and virtually peek in the windows.

Wishing you creative days and wonderful weddings!


Mrs. Road Trip
