what do I know for sure?

Fortunately I've learned a few things along the way on this journey of life.
Always wear clean underwear, look someone in the eye when speaking with them, the roll belongs with the tissue coming off the top not from the underside, and always keep a spray bottle of Downy wrinkle release handy. But I think the most important truth that I have learned is that everything happens for a reason.

We may not always understand it right away or even like the way things turn out. It may take days, weeks or even years sometimes before we can look back and realize that there was a higher plan as to the way something occurred. But the reason was there whether obvious or not.

I also feel like if we are honest with ourselves we will admit that it always works out for the best and highest good. We may not have been hoping for an outcome or liked it at the time but rest assured it was the best way.

Why the sudden burst of introspection, you ask? This was our prompt for Roc's monthly journal group "what is one important thing you've learned in your life"? You can join the group or see other interpretations for this prompt here.

slightly sinister ... who me?

Anyone who really knows me knows that my life is pretty much an open book (mainly because I never know when to shut up). The slightly sinister I refer to in the title is a new image kit released by Tumble Fish Studio at Here are a couple pieces I made from this new kit.

I like the irony of making a happy piece from a 'sinister' kit with this first one:

Then I had a little fun with the bird and probably started heading a bit more in the 'sinister' direction.

Finally I just had a little fun on the dark side:

Whether you lean to the bright side or 'sinister' side I appreciate you stopping by today and hope you find the time to check out The Tin Goat again soon.

A Few New Pieces

Today I thought I would share a few pieces I've done using the new Tumble Fish Studio kit "Greg's Anatomy".

The first piece is a 4 x 6" or postcard size:

Next is a sweet little guy literally wearing his heart on his sleeve and carrying a female reproductive system flower - who could ask for anything more?

And finally you may remember my latest addiction, the altered envelope:

If you would like to see more of the "Greg's Anatomy" kit or any of the other wonderful kits by Tumble Fish Studio go to and have a look.
