Wanted DEAD or ALIVE

I am offering a REWARD for someone who may encounter an item that I have been looking for almost a year now. It all started with Laura Denisson's 2009 Halloween album. (I love this woman) She doesn't know that, maybe she does !!! She made this awesome Halloween paperbag mini last year, with the canvas cover and Basic Greys Erie Collection. I instantly fell in love and knew I had to make the album. Well, I made it. Cover and all. But there is one thing missing !!!! I cannot find the beaded necklace with "THE SKELETON HAND" !!! And I am obssessed ! Can anyone relate? So, I am willing to cast a hefty REWARD to anyone who can get me the Skull beaded Necklace, made by Celebrate It, distributed by Michaels.

Should you come accross one and are interested in sending one to me please let me know either here on this post or you may email me at olgamia@msn.com. THAT'S HOW SERIOUS I AM LOLOLOL.
Until then, take good care and have FUN!!!!!! Life is Good !!!!

First look at my April Tag

How much fun I had making this tag for the April Tag Swap hosted by our friend Arlene at butterflykisseswithlove.blogspot.com . Thanks Arlene.
The theme was Roses and flowers, and add some fabric. The fabric is actually my Cupid and Phyque image. That is my favorite stamp in the whole wide world ! There is other pieces of fabric throughout the tag. The Rose on her hair is special! There's vintage lace, as well as vintage bling.
I've not had time to make my first You Tube, but I am hoping May will be a good time to start. I would love to share my techniques with all you lovely ladies! Hope you like it. I'll post more photos soon!

Double Beautiful Blogger Nomination

My lovely You Tube Friends Arlene from http://butterflykisseswithlove.blogspot.com/ and Vangie from http://arrestedmotion.blogspot.com/ have nominated my with a beautiful blogger award! And I would like to thank them both for that! Arlene, Vangie YOU GUYS ROCK !!!!

Please check out Arlene's and Vangie

s blogs as well as their you tube videos. They give so much inspiration !

I'm supposed to list ten interesting things about myself, so here it goes:

1) I am a Vice President to a Construction Company in Miami Florida and we Build out the stores you see in the Miami International Airport. ( I learned Arlene is a Project Manager, hummmm Maybe I can convince her to work in the great MIA )

2) I have been blessed with four grown up children that have their own little families. Making me a grandmother of six. Yes Grandmother. You wouldn't know if you saw my photo ! He He !!!! I act like a little girl all the time ! lolol

3) I dream about opening up my own "Art Making Bar" in MIA. Thus the name Artmingle, Inc. Already Incorporated.

4) I live by myself in a four bedroom , three bathroom Townhouse. Two rooms and the Garage are occupied by Art and Sewing ! My home is my retreat !

5) At this time, I am addicted to You Tube. I have met so many wonderful people here. I feel I am never alone! They are humble, generous and best of all, they share my Passion ! Art and Shopping ! LOL

6) Being so humble myself, I am finding it hard to write ten things that are interesting about me! This is hard labor ! :)

7) Oh ! My favorite symbol is the Fleur De Lis !

The fleur-de-lis (or fleur-de-lys; plural: fleurs-de-lis; French pronunciation: [flœʁ də lis]) is a stylized lily (in French, fleur meansflower, and lis means lily) or iris that is used as a decorative design or symbol. It may be "at one and the same time, political,dynastic, artistic, emblematic, and symbolic", especially in heraldry.[1

8) I have used my formal living room and converted it into a Library. Stores my humongous collection of magazines and books.

9) I love art, in many forms. Painting, photography, collage work, scrapbooking and card making, quilting, and especially mixed media works
