Manic Monday


Not much going on…. I’ve finally had time to get into my “CRAFT CLOSET” and play around for a few hours over the weekend.  I belong to several artists groups on Yahoo…. one of which is “Artists of the Round Table”.  We are working on creating ATC’s using different techniques from Berie Berlin’s book.  I’m enjoying the process and really appreciate the fact that I have to be more disciplined in this workshop.  Here are some of the projects I’ve worked on so far.

OK… The Zentangle Craze ( www.zentangle.com ) is happening and I had to try my hand at a few. (Talk about getting into a zone….. how relaxing to create these)   The first three I decided to keep in the black/white motif as they are so commonly seen. BUT… I decided I’d like to see what a few would look like in luminaire paints. (Great shimmer not being picked up by scanner, sorry)  Let me know what you think…. black and white or colored!!

2 More ATC’s

Soon enough these ATC’s will be up for sale in my etsy shop…

I’m working against myself I think.. LOL  I should be getting ready for show I’ll be vending at but, I tend to want to work on other art pieces.  My muse is back and I’m unstoppable.

Now if I only didn’t have to go back to work tomorrow.  😦

Productive Few Days

Well, my vacation is coming to an end…. and there are lots more things I would like to accomplish, but alas, the time has run out on me.  A painting project in the house failed…. miserably so it took up a lot of days…. as we had to paint over it……..  My husband feels like the walls are closing in on him… *grin*   It wouldn’t have anything to do with the 5 layers of paint on them would it????!!!!   (Side note:  Don’t ever, ever use Ralph Lauren’s Lava Rock Paint….. it’s HORRRRRRIBLE)

 OK, enough of that………    In between all of that and staying up till 3:30 am every night… I managed to get some art done.  I’m pleased with what I created… so here are a few pictures.

Hello World!! :)

Hello World,

I seem to have been absent for a while.  Life is hectic at the moment and I haven’t taken any time for “me” which means I’ve neglected my blog…..  Since I’m currently on vacation and suffering again from swollen glands, sinus infection and ear infections I thought I’d sit here quietly and post some of the items I’ve made in the last month or so.  Yes, I’ve managed to grab 30 min. here and there….. not enough time to call it “ME’ time….. as I feel “ME” time is several hours in the craft studio without interuptions…… Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhh how I long for the day that I can just walk in there with a clean slate…… no housework waiting on me, no work, no cooking or responsibilities……  OK OK, this is getting depressing…. LOL

For now, I’ll just post some of my recent works of art. 


I bet you wish you could sculpt your kaboose so easily!! *GRIN*
