Happy New Year!

Thanks to Barb Speck for the use of her image.

Happy 2012!

As the New Year dawns, we all look forward
to what a brand new year can bring.

No matter what happened in 2011,
good or bad, we look to a fresh beginning.

At least that's what you're supposed
to believe as the ball drops.

For most of us, we look forward to
building on the foundations we've laid
in the past year or years. We strive to
continue on a good path, to keep reaching
for our goals and to share happiness with
as many others as we can.
Why would you want to wipe everything
out and start from scratch?

At MoonlightJourney, Becky & Lynne
are grateful for the past year. The business
has grown quite a bit and we have more
customers than ever. Most of our customers
feel like family since they buy from us so often.

Our Design Team is one of the best around -
give them an image to work with and they
amaze us every time. We try to offer
collage sheets and other artistic goodies
that you can't find anywhere else.

MoonlightJourney prides itself on giving you
more than your money's worth. We don't use
one image and just make it different sizes
on a collage sheet. You get different images,
artistically altered images to launch your
imagination into the stratosphere.

So here's to the upcoming New Year...
may we all have jobs that we love, a roof
over our heads, enough food on the table
and friends & family to love.

~ Becky & Lynne

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas!

May all your wishes come true
during this magical time.

May you have Faith and Love,
Companionship & Family.

May you see the brightest star
in the sky and know that
it shines for all living things.

May you know the true meaning of
Christmas, strive for peace on earth
and share what you have with others.

Only then will the magic of Christmas
be something you live all year long.

New Collage Sheet

I had a lot of fun creating this sheet.
I had it in my head for a while but didn't
have the time needed to actually do it.
Then last week, I was stricken by the
flu and didn't have the energy to do more
than sit in front of the computer.
Despite putting my head down on my desk
from time to time, I'm pretty pleased with it!

Free Halloween iPad Homescreen For You!

As some of you know, the last few weeks have been very
difficult around my neck of the woods. For some reason,
Mother Nature has gone to extremes to make life interesting.
 I'm happy to report that my basement is finally dry and
the task of storm clean-up is under way!

I felt that it would be nice to give my fellow iPad
users something fun for their Homepage Screen.
Believe me, if it weren't for my iPad, I would
have lost my mind sitting in the dark trying
to read a book by flashlight!

Here are the steps to get it into your device:
Open your iPad & navigate to this blog.
Click on the photo above to make it larger.
Tap & hold your finger on the image.
A dialog comes up so select SAVE IMAGE.

Then go to SETTINGS on your first page.
Choose the image tap SET AS

Of course, you can save the image to
the computer you're on now and sync it
the next time you sync your iPad

Have spooky fun with it!

I dare say that we have the most
wonderfully witchy collection
on the entire web so come see
what we have to inspire you!

New Collage Sheets

It seems that the only creative time I have lately
is in the evening when I'm playing with my iPad.
The two collage sheets that are pictured above
were created on the iPad, transfered to my computer
and finished off in Photoshop. You can have a lot
of fun if you put your mind to it and learn the
new gizmo as fast as possible!!

On the iPad, I used Photo Booth to take pictures
of my wood floor, the gravel driveway, the
side of the house and anything else that had an
interesting texture to it. The photos were saved
in Camera Roll (in case you don't know where
they get saved to - LOL!)

Then I used an app called PicGrunger (.99 cents)
to make the photos grungy. I also found a great
app to get the photos from the iPad to my computer
without using the sync wire thingy. It's called
PhotoSync and it's the best $1.99 I ever spent.
It comes in 2 parts: the app for the iPad and
a download application that goes on your
computer. You can transfer images back & forth
among all sorts of devices - wirelessly!

Ah... isn't technology a wonderful thing?

These sheets can be found at MoonlightJourney
on the $2 Specials page.

Free iPad Wallpaper For You!

I've been away from blogging to take care
of family & doggy matters so I thought
I'd try my hand at creating a Wallpaper
for all you iPad users out there.

I hope you enjoy looking at this as
your home screen as much as I
enjoyed creating it in the first place!

Here are the steps to get it into your device:
Open your iPad & navigate to this blog.
Click on the photo above to make it larger.
Tap & hold your finger on the image.
A dialog comes up so select SAVE IMAGE.

Then go to SETTINGS on your first page.
Choose the image & tap SET AS

Of course, you can save the image to
the computer you're on now and sync it
the next time you sync your iPad

Have fun with it!

New Collage Sheet For Charms

We get requests from time to time to make
special size or special subject collage sheets
so here is something for the jewelry makers.

The circles are 1.25 inches in diameter and
they'd be perfect for making charms for
charm bracelets.

All the images are of vintage children and I
spent quite a bit of time fixing up the images
so they'd look their very best for you!

You can see this collage sheet at
MoonlightJourney along with over
300 other collage sheets. We also have
digital elements packs, craft projects,
and instructional classes.

New Collage Sheets!

There are four new collage sheets on
MoonlightJourney this week.
These are the ones that I (Lynne)
created. Yes, the one above is a bit
of a departure for me but
they are so pretty.

The one below is more my style!
Becky (my friend & partner at MJ)
has 2 new sheets as well and they
are all on our website right now.

We're still fund-raising for the
Red Cross of Central Oklahoma
to aid the tornado victims near
Becky's home. Please stop by
our site and learn more about it.

We're delighted to let you know about
a wonderful art challenge that's hosted
by our friend Vicki at The Cheerful Stamper.

Her challenge is for you to create art
with the theme "Things With Wings."

So get out your scissors & glue or fire up
your graphics program and join in the fun.

MoonlightJourney is a very proud sponsor
of this challenge & we're touched that
Vicki gives of her time and talent to
promote the creativity in us all!

Helping Those In Need

During June we are donating to a special
project near to Becky’s heart.
Terrible tornados touched down near her home
causing great devastation for 60 miles,
nearly ½ mile to 1 mile wide through that whole area.

The American Red Cross of Central Oklahoma
is helping all of the families touched by this tragedy.
For every sheet sold through the month
of June, we will donate $1.00 to the
American Red Cross of Central Oklahoma
Dept. No.96-0397
Oklahoma City, OK 73196
to help with clean up and the personal needs
of the families devastated by the tornado
of May 24th 2011.

(For an up-close look at the destruction, please
visit Becky's Blog)
That means if you buy 1 sheet we donate $1.00,
5 sheets $5.00, 10 sheets $10.00 so on and so forth.
You'll only be charged the price of the collage sheet;
the $1 donation will come from our profits.

We will be putting a running tally on


so you can see how much we will be
donating to the Red Cross on July 1st.

all the good things that America is...

New Collage Sheet ~ Cats!

Many of you who have followed me
know that my "day job" is working
for our local Humane Society.
I'm the PR Director and have been
with the shelter in one capacity or
another for almost 20 years.

I'm always promoting animal welfare
and I don't hesitate to preach the
importance of spaying & neutering
your pets. In fact, if everybody did
the "right thing" when it comes to
their pets, I'd be out of a job.
That wouldn't be a bad thing
because if there's no need for
animal shelters, rescue groups
or municipal pounds that would
mean that all animals are treated
the way they should be.

So my passion for the pets
sometimes shows up in my artwork
and this collage sheet is one example.

All the cats are from our shelter and
I thought it would be fun to make
them look like the sweet treats
that they are. I have to thank my
good friend Marion for the photos.
She volunteers her time every week
to take photos & biographies of the
shelter pets. Then she uploads them to
Petfinder and other online sites plus
she sends them to local newspapers.

Kitty purrs to all the folks who work
so hard for the betterment of animals!
