Irish Lass

A day to transform winter's dreams into summer's magic.Well my Irish Lass got a little distressed LOL Her face started sticking to a piece of paper I laid down when the glue was still wet ... oops ... she made it through mostly in tact though.

And yeah ... it's spring ... no snow! It's been in the 60s and 70s for almost 3 weeks ... yippeee!

Waaaahhh! Shoulda Told Me!

Panic Day -- Give into panic just one day & you're set for the year!
Ugggghhh!! No one told me March 9 was Panic Day. The idea is that you take one day to have a major panic day ... and you're set all year. I missed my chance ... now I have to panic all year LOL Well ... at last I'm off to good start ... hee hee

Urban Nightscape

Urban Nightscape
This is my contribution for the Urban topic on Artwords. This theme was a bit of a stretch for me ... and yet I've been a city girl for the last 25 years. I was born and raised in a small town ... and hated every minute of it! I found I had no identity in a small town ... but in the city ... well maybe I'm more interesting because I'm eccentric LOL

New Chunky Page

A real lady knows how to accesorize.

Here is a chunky page I made for a dear friend.

Michaelangelo's Birthday

Michaelangelo Faux Fresco
This month was Michaelangelo's birthday, so I dedicated an art journal page to the master! To create a faux fresco look I spread spackle on muslin, added color and image, and gently cracked before sealing and gluing into the journal.

Between Earth and Sky

This is a journal page I did in Christy's Flavia calendar journal ... fun ... fun!!

Beauty Assemblage Screen

Here is an assemblage screen I made for a charity auction a few weeks go. The photo isn't the best, but the others were unusable ... eeekkk! The base piece is made from a vintage book cover from my dear friend Angie!!

Doodle Bird Postcard

Doodle Bird -- he looks a little angry at the colors I chose LOL
Oops ... this is long overdue. I had to start this over 3 times LOL So I put it aside and came back to it. Fabric is not always my friend LOL

Doodle Journal Pages

These are a couple journal pages I did at the Traci Bautista classes the last weekend in February. I did the backgrounds on both pages. The doodling on the left was done by Traci Bautista and the doodling on the right page was done by me and Tracey Kazimir-Cree from my local art group who was also in class.

Urban Snow

I'm a little late getting this up, but this is yet another snow dedicated page from the February calendar journal. Not going for pretty in particular ... but it makes a statement LOL

This is what the 63rd day of blizzard snow looks like.

Eiffel Art

Yippee! I finished the last of my Eiffel Tower decos ... and here they are ...

Faux Postcard - Eiffel Tower Biking in Paris

Life Update

My life seems to have not slowed down at all LOL I thought this would get easier after the light rail opening at work ... but that does not appear to be the case.

On the upside, I may finally get a job title change and upgrade ... aka promotion. I've been working toward this for several years. I got a promotion 7 years ago, but this one will be special to me, as I have basically created my own job and I may finally get to reap the rewards.

And what a change. It seems that people know I am possibly moving up the ladder and into management ... I'm not the bottom of the food chain anymore! People hold up meetings for me ... can you believe it?

With my special work project getting ready to go back into full swing I will finally have to succumb and cut back on art swaps ... sigh ... so I am in wrap up mode right now.

Are You?

You Are a Nigella
"Many people think you are just a little bit odd, but you consider yourself just a little eccentric. You find new experiences exciting and fulfilling."
