Well, this is for my Twi-Girls. Especially Tonya. I have mentioned in the TTIC forums (we have so much fun there!), how I have been sporting the Goth look (with intermissions of Raver, Medieval, and a couple of other extreme looks) since I was like… 13 or 14. I have been dying my hair all sorts of colors like blue, pink, green, etc since I was in high school. The look had to be temporarily shelved because maternity clothes are SO not cool, and the whole, don’t dye your hair while you’re pregnant thing. So, I had to suffer with normalcy for a couple of years. What a tragedy, I know. But, I finally, FINALLY took the time to bleach out and colorize myself the way I used to. And I am proud to say that Phoenix picked out the color (which happened to be the one I was secretly hoping for!). Feast your eyes on this folks…

Bella's Lullaby 001

I also did up my makeup a bit, though you can’t really tell in this photo. I am not the “typical” Alison in this pic… but you can at least get an idea of how I like to look. I am thrilled with the color; it’s always been my fave color to dye my hair. And little Phoenix said “Mommy, Phi like your hair.” Precious! I am so happy he likes it!

Now let’s go back in time…

Bella's Lullaby 002

Now, these are all photos of photos, so they look kind of crummy… but here’s some more teal… with my hair nice and short!

Bella's Lullaby 003 Yes, this IS actually Halloween. So it is a wee bit more extreme then my every day look. However, if you just picture a little less makeup, then this is often how my day to day was…

Bella's Lullaby 004 At the Ren Faire! The Dark Fairy (if you only knew how many families stopped me to take pictures with their kids! Now I know what Mickey Mouse feels like!). I have some pink locks here… another fave color to use.

Bella's Lullaby 005 My Birthday. Probably about 9 years ago. Purple and pink goes so great with my red plaid pants dontcha think???

So, there ya go. Me and a couple of my looks… I was actually surprised at how few pics I could find of me… So I put up what I could find here. Hope you enjoyed! And remember… you asked for it! :)

Christmas in July with Imagine Crafts & Stencil Girl!

Hello! Have you heard? The Imagine AIRs have been hopping with Stencil Girl! If you have been here before, you know I loooove me some stencils, so this collaboration was very exciting for me! The teams are hopping for 3 consecutive Saturdays, and this is week 2. I have the entire list of hop links at the bottom of the post. Be sure you don't miss anyone! I decided to to create an extra large gift tag with my new stencils. Using red cardstock, I taped down the Journal Texture #8 Stencil  and inked it up with Golden Glitz Delicata ink . I promise you, this is the BEST gold ink you will ever use! The Journal stamp only has 2 diamonds on it (it's a 4x4" stencil), so after I inked up the first pair, I moved over the stencil, lined it up, and inked again. Next I wanted to do something textural with the Urban Insiders Star . So I took some evergreen cardstock, taped down the star, and slathered on some yummy Iridescent Green Creative Medium . After the medium dried, I ga

Remembering Aletha

Greetings, Friends. This post today is part of a very special blog hop. We are celebrating the life of an amazingly talented artist and friend. The crafting community lost Aletha Jane Williams on May 5, 2019. Those of us that worked with her on Design Teams or on Challenge Blogs all agree that she was one of the sweetest and most talented women we knew. We are not here to mourn her loss though. This hop is happening in conjunction with a very special celebration of her life and her art that her husband Bob is holding in her home city of Tulsa, Oklahoma. Please join us in honoring our incredibly creative friend Aletha . My card features the "Remembering Aletha" Sprite, which Mitzi (owner and artist of Aurora Wings ) created specifically for this hop. She is generously giving the digi away to all, over on her blog. This sweet Sprite looks so much like Aletha, and I know she would have been honored. If you download this digi for yourself, please be sure to give a huge "


Greetings! I don't have a project to share with you today, but rather, an announcement. I have decided to completely revamp my blog, and move it to a new site. I've been blogging at 21st Century Pillow Book for over 10 years now, and it's been wonderful. But the "Pillow Book" aspect got lost somewhere along the way. If you don't know what that is, read my description in the blog header, or do a quick search. They are really very cool. Anyway, I thought it was due time for me to work on a new blog, more of a brand, etc. So, I invite you to now join me over at . I've still got some polishing up to do, and a whole lot of learning, as WordPress is completely different from Blogger, but I am really excited for this new site. I've wanted to do this for a long time, and I am happy to finally be getting it done. Bear with me as I figure out the best way to make it all look and flow. I thankfully have some help with that. But I think you
