I would like to invite you to be our Guest Designer for July, if you would like to accept the offer please contact Sandie here   and she will give you the details.

                     Our Guest Designer this month is Joi@RR 

Wow - the incredible Sandie and her fabulous design team have given me the SUPER FINE privilege of Guest Designer for June. Thanks Bunches to you all. 
I am Joi from Texas - known by most as Joi@RR because I do all my artwork here on the ranch.  At 62, I am a happily married, retired social worker. Hubby and I celebrated our 43rd anniversary a few days ago. Our daughter, son-in-law and four PRECIOUS grandchildren live far away so we don't see the but once a year.  That gives me a lot of time for art! 
I learned to quilt, knit, crochet, cross-stitch, embroider, and make stained glass after I was married.  However I had never picked up a paint brush to paint on canvas, create paper art such as cards, or do any type of mixed media/altered art until about a year ago.  I LOVE IT!  I feel so blessed to be able to have this time for me to finally express myself in ways I never imagined I could or would. 
You have no idea what an honor it is for me to be here today to share with you this project for Rhedd's Creative Spirit.  For the full story on this creation... Mr. Pygmy Bear... and to learn how he got his name... visit me at  

This was an old, worn out, forgotten breakable plastic statue that is approx. 9" x 14".  I redid his body with paint and the cliff he stands on with refinished with alcohol inks.  The base has lots of items gathered from around the ranch as well as a few little metal critter embellishments.  Mr. Pygmy Bear was sooooooooo much fun to make for you! 

Have a happy and creative JUNE.  Please send in LOTS of entries to this months challenge because I am VERY EXCITED to being able to leave personal comments for each of you. Big hugs. j.
