Cinnamon Roll Pancake!!

Tried a new recipe this morning that I tweaked to make faster & easier and to my liking.  The most amazing part, is that is does taste like a Cinnamon roll!!  This is pretty sweet, so I only ate one as I am really trying to reduce my sugar intake.

  1. Cinnamon filling:  3/4 c light brown sugar, packed; 1/2 c butter; 2 T cinnamon. Put brown sugar and cinnamon in skillet with melted butter. Mix well. Remove from skillet. 
  2. Glaze: All to taste & consistency to your preference. Mix powdered sugar, vanilla, water to taste. 
  3. Take any pancake mix. Make batter as normal. After you put in skillet, place the cinnamon filling in a ring into the batter. It wont make a perfect ring but it wont matter. Flip the pancake and cook the other side with filling in it. Be careful so doesnt burn. Flip onto plate and use glaze to coat to taste. ENJOY!

Thru My Eyes

This is a piece I started last year, ended up whiting the eyes out cuz I couldnt get them quite right.  Today, something made me pick her up & finish.  Okay....this is a not everyone can appreciate kinda piece, I recognize this.  But I go where the ArT, my mojo, takes me and this is where it led.  In the past few days there has been a lot of grief - and to some degree I am sure it manifested itself in this way.
With that said, here she is.....Accept it or not.  Either way it is okay with me. :) That's just how it goes sometimes, right!?

THe Whole Shabang!!

In 2013 I want to make more of an effort, an investment into hercreativesoul and determining the direction for it and growth I want to see it soar to.
One goal is to post on my blog more, so far so good :)   The other is to help myself grow creatively, artistically - first art online class in 2013 - check! done!
One other way I can grow artistically and as a business woman is by trying to learn more this year.  That can take on different forms to accomplish it.

You know, all of this is scary to do, get started, then once started, OH MY GOSH?!?! what is supposed to be next?? You start to question yourself? Doubt yourself.  Your abilities.You find that not all women are there to lend a helping hand.  You learn lots about people, "friends", yourself, etc... But then you make some amazing connections.  Some truly generous people.  Have wonderful positive experiences.  I can go on and on.  Bottom line --- THIS IS NOT EASY!! Anyone who tells you it is or they never had those instances come up -- is NoT being truthful.  {{sorry, no time in my life for negative, disingenuous folks}}  Some folks are naturally more confident, savvy, etc... than others but they aren't that good! Any-whoooo.....lets get off that topic- ick!

To help further my growth, I have longed for this book/e-course that Kelly Rae Roberts has - Flying Lessons.  I have her first book, Taking Flight, and I absolutely LOVED it!! It was the first honest discussion I had seen/read & it encouraged me to listen to my whispers.  And BELIEVE!  When I saw Flying Lessons I thought this is wonderful!! Just what I need to help me. Its about how to help your creative business soar.  But it was a little out of my price range at the time.  I believe in timing, the universe has a hand in all this & at that time it just wasn't meant to happen.  This week I saw on FB she was having a 1 day sale on what you ask??? FLYING LESSONS!!  50% OFF!!!  I happened to come across it late on the one day!  So I clicked BUY!!
Happy Dance time!! :)

This weekend I have more "me" time than normal & I plan to devote a good portion of it to start going through this book.  It is over 200+pages!! A wealth of information, of sharing, etc....  I cannot wait to start on my investment into my business & into myself!!
Oh, the lessons are broken into parts 1-3 that can be purchased separately so that may be an option rather than all at once but -- I wanted to share with other creative women this is a great resource to making the investment in your business & yourself.  Good Luck crafty ladies & SOAR!!

You are Wonderful Angel Canvas

I have posted my latest mixed media piece.  A pretty lil angel who like to wear a lil bling & lots of bright colors!! Not to mention that cheetah print belt ;)  I had lots of fun making this.  The background was very busy and bright, which I loved but at first I thought maybe it was a little too busy.  But the more I worked on it the more it all came together and I really LOVE the end result.
She is posted on my Etsy store, hercreativesoul which you can click on the name and go straight to my store to see her and all my other work.
Thanks for looking!!
