Wonderful 2006 Ahead!!!!

I'm so excited to report that some fantastic things are happening at BIZZI! Okay, I might be a tad bit biased, but...see for yourself: I will be a featured designer in the April Edition of Just Cross Stitch Magazine that will be available in early February; I designed the cover of the new Stitch-A-Licious Volume II Cookbook for Needlework Markets that will be available at the Nashville Trade Show; and have illustrated my first children's book! :) So stay tuned!!!

Best Wishes to everyone for a healthy and prosperous 2006~!
Warmest regards,

When I think of you...

This was a fun piece - watercolour garden with a nice copper gate. Look carefully and you will find a little rabbit in the grass. This fun whimsical piece delighted its new owner. It will soon evolve into a new cross stitch for it at Nashville.

Life...Live it! Love it!

This is what I love about what I do...I am blessed to have stitchers like Erin! She took my "Let Your Spirit Soar" and stitched it up on Silkweavers Dream fabric and gave it to her friend that had lost everything in a fire and needed a new lease on life. I hope that this small gesture blessed their life as much as it does mine. I feel privledged to have been a part of a small way. I hope my designs continue to bring about blessings to those that stitch and those that don't...

Life...Live it! Love it!
Thanks Erin for passing this on!

I love the month of September. It stared when I was little, because my mother's birthday was in September and my grandparent's wedding anniversary. It was always a month of celebrating. Plus, I just love Fall! I love to feel the cooler breezes and see the changing of the leaves. The color this time of year can be just fabulous.

This year I am celebrating something new - my first wedding anniversary. It has been a tough year, but one that I feel we are stronger for having been through it. I have done a lot of retrospection of my life and have set forward with new goals and changes that I hope not only myself will benefit from, but those around me.

My new motto is: " it! it!"

"If the Broom fits..." is complete! I have the PDF file available for those who want it. It is a FREE bee design. For complete details on the program refer to my website - free bees.

I also picked up a few new designs from the framer and excited about photographing and publishing them soon. I will let you know when they are available.

Oh, and if you liked the artwork published below with watercolour pens - experiment. It is available in note cards (blank inside). Just let me know.

Well, it is Monday and plenty to do! Have a Marvelous Monday!

I just love Fridays...they are the inspiration for the weekend. I find they either give me energy to create or vegetate. I always have a list too long to complete any given day much less a weekend. But, it feels so great to start a Monday off when I can at least check something off my endless list!

I just added stitching my new FREE bee to the list as I just received the fun fabric - some Aida 14 count Purple Potter. I'm not a big fan of Aida cloth, but I just love this full rich colour! It is a simple design, finishing approximately 4"x4". So that will be fun.

Experimenting with watercolour pens

This has been fun. I have done some new drawings utilizing watercolour pens. They do blend and I find it is so similar in application, that if you do not want something to bleed into something else to wait until the area is dried before applying. As with regular watercolour, you must, I repeat MUST save your whites (paper). You also must start with the light colours and work towards dark- what I call giving depth to the painting.

Start with something small. Draw a simple picture and experiment. Do not skimp on paper quality. I find that the heavier paper allows for a more colourful and detailed painting.

Happy Creating!

Paintings, sewing, designing and such!

Hi, I just started this blog to talk about my fun adventures with BIZZI Creations. I will try to keep you up with where I am going...what I am doing...and what I have been up to (at least creatively :)!

I look forward to hearing from everyone and I feel that is so important in life. Since school is back in session I have been thinking more about taking painting lessons and even trying to teach some.

Before I close, I will mention that I might talk about my two cats, two dogs, husband, or son even along the way. SO, stay tuned.

Currently, my cross stitch designs are on view (trunk show) at Cross Stitch Unlimited in Arlington, MA! It will be there through mid- September.

I will be releasing a new FREE BEE cross stitch design for Halloween! I think it is a kick! I will let you know when I have it available on the website. I am trying to create PDF files so you don't have to wait for the snail mail!

Have a fantabulous day!!!!
Paula :-)
