Happy October!

Well I am trying to upload my pic's and it's not working. Maybe it's me, not a morning person. I'm up in the studio early today to beat the heat that is on it's way.
I'll  try again later........

Well I can get old photo's so I posted this decorated Pringles can (An idea I borrowed from my blogger friend Sharon) to show how you can artfully send cookies to your favorite college students.
I will be making one "University of Maryland" style for my great niece.

Have an artful day!

catching up

Hello all! I am still here and was told by some that my blog is being I am back. My computer is upstairs and it is very hot up here in the summer. Even with the so called AC.
And those who know me know I don't do heat.
So last week we ventured out to PA for the Quilt Extravaganza and here are a few of my fav's. Sorry no credits....oops.
 Above is a close up of her eye from this portrait. Goes to shoe you can use any fabric's.
 This is a close up of the lovely pinks.
 Love the detail on this realistic rhino.

And just plain yummy colors here!
Have a great weekend!

Lost in time

So sorry....I didn't really drop off the edge of the earth. Can't believe I missed the whole month of May! I am posting this from my iPad, so if it works I will definitely be posting more.  
I just noticed that inside the heart on the above pic, it says sweet. Like sweet heart, but I don't think I planned it that way. Or did I? I can't remember much of anything lately.

Right now I am trying to stay awake so I can see the rocket launch tonight from Wallops Island.
It is scheduled for 11:05. Hope I don't forget. Yes, it's that bad ( memory)

Good night all!

new obsession!

 Love this new stamp collection by Tim.
New obsession?
I have avoided it for a long time and now I ask myself why?
So many wonderful ideas, recipes, artwork, name it, it's there.
 I found this fabulous bird art there and would love to have this tattooed on myself. Sorry I don't have the artist name offhand.
Pure yumminess!
But beware! Very addicting and consumes many hours of time.

Have a  great Thursday!

Hello April

Someone needs to let Mother Nature know that it's SPRING! It's been so cold! I hope it warms up soon but not jump into Summer heat. I enjoy the cooler weather.

I can't believe that I missed blogging the whole month of March. I have been feeling bad and have been very busy when I wasn't sick. I have been getting ready for the Art Asylum at Queen's Ink in Savage Mill on the 27th.

Been making journals and rag bagz like crazy....promise to show pictures next week.

Have an artful weekend!

I love this!
Yes, I am a butter freak...always have been.
Do you play Draw Something?
I cannot believe some of the art people create for this game.
Hope your Tuesday is going well.

weekend art

I had some company for the weekend. While she was trying on clothes at the store I was wandering around and found some interesting textures.
Sweaters stacked up.
Colorful slacks stacked.

And the front window of my favorite Rehoboth Shop....Bella Luna.
We had a great time despite the freezing temps and snow.
I think I have my blog fixed now.
I will be expanding to a new section with my Rag Bagz soon.

Hello February

I am still here. Surgery is done and I am getting better each day. It was scary but we won't get into that. I am happy to be alive! Still having computer problems, but getting by. This weekend I am working on two projects, one of them being a Valentine art swap for My Heart's Fancy. It's so nice that I am able to stay connected with my art buddies in OK. I miss them....and the great shopping! Hope to be back next week with some show and tell.

studio sunday

OK! It's Studio Sunday and thats where I am and DH is in the kitchen conjuring up some wonderful smells making chili. I don't eat chili but it smells good whilst cooking. I didn't get to explain the photo on my last post because I was having computer problems. It's a card that I made for my niece for her 18th birthday. I can't believe she's 18 alredy and will soon be headed off to collage. where does the time go?
Still having issues with the blog. I can't remember wht the above pic is because again, it's just a jumble of letters and words. I'll get back to it. OK, I remembered, the top is my January quilt page.
This one is a huge whale painting I made for my daughter for Christmas. She loves the whales! I made one for myself in different colors and it's being used for a headboard in the surf room (AKA hubby's office) I am trying to organize and tidy the studio today and get ready for a few new projects. One of which I will share on my next post. You can do it too!

happy artful new year!

Well,I am not off to a very good start this year. The Friday before last I had a gall bladder attack and ended up in the ER. Followed by a week stint on the couch. Surgery is set for the 21st of this month to take the sucker out. I knew I had a stone in 05 but they didn't want to do anything about it. I'm just thankful that DH is retired now and is here to take care of me....and he is! Then I sign onto blogger and things have changed. Can't get photo's to download, not sure if this will come out or not,( but I have DH to fix it.) Took me two days to get this far. So after I get myself taken care of, I plan to give the blog a whole new look with new fun places to visit. Meanwhile I am trying to tidy up the studio and get ready for a new year of fun art.
