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 . 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!

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.

10) My greatest love are my children and my grandchildren. They are my soulmates.
