My sentiments exactly!
I am really deep cleaning the studio so there is no new art to share...I am staying focused and not giving in the the temptation of stepping to the table and starting any new projects. Soooo....
I am
taking a
blog break
for about a
See you then!

random friday

Yesterday was a wild day for tornadoes in the midwest!
We got by with thunderstorms...
and more to come.
Tis the season.
Yesterday was our quilt guild meeting...
...lecture was about crazy quilting.
Lots of fun detail...I love detail.
...and I learned quite a bit.

But the quilts were not the only thing knocking our socks off.
Check out Kay Z's car!

She made a quilt she really loves....

....and covered her car in it.
That's one wild ride.
Way to go...
...or is it way to sew ?
Have a great weekend!
It's Art Fest weekend in OKC

Happy Earth Day!!

This geranium was a cutting from last years plant and it survived all winter in the garage.
It bloomed for me today.
Al tho it's a bit spindly...
I love it.
It's a true survivor.

wednesday already?

Can't believe it's Wednesday already....
...still spring cleaning.
Found my camera!
It was buried under a mound of fabric in the studio.
Been busy running around having labs done and getting caught up on yearly doctor exams.

But I did get a bag order done and here it is.

She is into sky diving and archery...
...what do you do for that?

Luckily her favorite color is blue so I lined it with sky fabric.
Added some blue flowers.
Then I threw it into a Target bag...done!

Have a happy hump day!

random friday

Yesterday I heard a bird singing and noticed he was on the ledge at my front door looking in the transome window. My foyer is decorated with birdhouses.....

....Was he or she admiring these fine homes?

or wondering how to gain access?

several models available

Or was the bird trying to communicate with the little bird in the cage?
The bird in my cage is a British robin and the bird on the ledge also had a pretty red breast.
Any way I enjoyed watching this creature and bird songs are always welcome here.
Enjoy your weekend!

wednesday update

Not out to lunch just yet.
But I will be a little later.
I got up this morning before the sun!
Need to catch up on cleaning....
....took some art time yesterday.

I'd rather be quilting!

Why is it that whenever I need to do something....
I always want to do something else?
It drives me crazy!
Hope your day is less confusing.
Happy Wednesday!

spring cleaning & postcard pages

Trying to get spring cleaning done but keep getting distracted by little art projects.

I gave in to my ADD (art distraction disorder) and made some more postcard pages. You know those annoying business reply cards constantly falling out of magazines. As I was weeding out old catalogs I came across these pretty girls in the Anthropologie catalog. Love their hair!

And I did make placemats with my selveges!
And my lunch looks pretty good on them.
Hope your Monday is going well!

Question of the day.....

What would art be without color?



so thankful for color!!
And I love them all.

Still using the pages from the cookbook.

Here is Harley.
In his favorite spot...
....on my car...

Have a colorful weekend!!

silly stuff

Yeah...I'm supposed to be spring cleaning the studio... hard to do.
Too many distractions.... I covered these sticks with pretty colored papers.

why not?
it was fun

Here is a close up of the bottom.
They are to organize my many spools of tape and ribbon.

And you thought I was goofing off...
...wasting time.
Hoping to produce some real art in the near future.
Right now the allergies are killing us!

late posting

I'm still here...
...been a little busy with some projects.
We are having some storms...lightning here.
But some people are having 70 mph winds and golf ball size hail.


I also took some time out to play.

Danita made these cool spools and I thought I needed some in my studio.

So I made these funny girls.
I like the second one from the left.

Now I am off to try to find my camera.
Been using my phone camera.
it's here somewhere!

Random Friday

Last night DH and I colored eggs.
...just for fun... egg reason.
It took all of 5 minutes.
I remember coloring eggs with the kids and it would last for what seemed like hours or maybe it was.

We mixed and created our own shades of Easter colors.

Woke up at 6 am to a wild hail storm.
It freaked out the cats.
I thought for sure that windows were going to break.

Nickel to quarter size hail balls.

Yesterday I turned on the AC because it was so warm in the house.
Crazy Oklahoma weather.

Paper towel art from the eggs.

Easter cupcakes for DH to take to work.

I love Easter but it's so hard being away from family
My BFF called today to cheer me up.
Thanks Debi!
Happy Easter!!

no foolin'

Did you know that when you put fresh cut tulips in a vase that they continue to grow?

It's true!

Day one...

...and I kept these a little longer than usual.

Day three...

...getting long and lanky.

Day five....

Are you supposed to trim these?

Happy April Fool's Day!
