Hunting for rocks,fossils and shells on the Seashore-Joy.

My little Paleontologist
Hunting for rocks and shells,esp.on the shore bring Me joy. A Grandchild enjoying the same thing lights up My world. Mary Anning enjoyed the same activity as My own little Paleontologist. She lead an interesting life,even Google did a doodle on Her birthday in 2004. I was ready to change My major in College to Archaeology when I got the phone call that I was accepted into the Nursing program.So often I've wondered what would have happened if I decided to tell them I had other plans. Roaming Egypt or South America maybe. Truly though I made the right decision, You are assured of a steady paycheck and everyday touching others who are in deep need.I do though choose archaeology shows over anything else on TV.All this train of thought started when My daughter sent Me this photo.A small thing in life-treasure hunting on the shore-can renew Your Joy.,,, Hugs Denise

Mixed Media

Mixed media,has become My favorite form of creativity over the Years.I sometimes crave playing in it and it's become "My cup of tea".It seems to Me that everything goes and not too many rules,if any. My different experiments and trials of artistic endeavors into this medium have been very therapeutic to Me and to so many others I've come to know, in the Mixed Media art world.I lose Myself in the time spent, the cares of My world fade away for the time being.I would recommend this type of art to all those in difficult times of life, transitional changes in life (change points).Google it , read, peek and enjoy.See if it's right for You. It sure was right for Me.

 Older papers with text can be used. Any of Your favorite ephemera, most embellishments like buttons, ribbon, glitter.  Acrylics,watercolor,oil pastels, pens pencils, markers of all kinds,stamps.The list can go on and on.

                        Please join Me at My regular blog Coffeeberry Cottage,I've had for six Years now.This Imagine Joy blog is really an experiment of Mine,I really don't know where it's going if anywhere.
    Always look up and out not down and back....Moonshine girl.

Excited about My new business

My husband Paul and I at one of Our daughters homes.....We've now been married 39 Years and He's been a blessing to Me since the day I met Him.I've thought now for many Years that I would like to bless Him in a slightly different way than usual.I've had Nursing jobs on and off through the Years in Our marriage to help Us buy homes and pay for Drill Teams ect.(We've raised 4 daughters).Now though I just want to pour buckets of tons of money over His head.Does that sound strange? It's true though, We have blessed and blessed eachother in so many ways, I think it would be fun -I can just see His smiling face.So I'm in the first few weeks of a new online mentoring business. I want to help other women find Joy they have lost or never found,through Christian based inspirational art journaling.I'm hoping some of My old friends from Coffeeberry Cottage will spread the news to those in need and My new friends too- welcome all : ) send them to My e-mail address please
I'll be posting more later but for now hugs and blessing-Denise of   Imagine Joy.

Just Imagine.

"...Joy unspeakable and full of glory",to know what that feels like does truly exceed the power of speech. Mountaintop experiences,even in the depths of despair and grief ,We can be assured that....  
 joy unspeakable is near and never leaves Us. 
My thoughts derived from  1 Peter 1:8.....
My Joy
Welcome to My new Blog .Hugs and blessings  Denise
