You're the Best


Just wanted to pop in quickly and show you a card that I made using one of my fun new buttons from Pinque Peacock.  I knew I would LOVE using these Farm Fresh buttons when I first saw them.

I thought I would start the month off right with a bright and joyfully colored card of thanks, realizing my color choices are totally out of season!

I have all but abandoned this blog over the last month due to work and life craziness.  I finally put down the keyboard (I work in the IT industry) and decided to take some time to let my inner artist free.

So, last weekend, I took a Clay Monoprinting workshop at a local artist's studio and LOVED it.  I knew I would, because I took the same workshop a couple years ago, except I took the one day version.  Mitch is truly an inspiring artist.  And so helpful.  He's very eager and willing to spread what he knows on to others.  He isn't having another workshop in my area until next year, but I just know I will most likely sign up again!

Below is one of the prints I finished.  In comparison to the last workshop, the prints I did this time are so much more fun.  Now, I have to figure out what I can do to make this a regular thing!  But I have no space left for any more art supplies! [I know I am not alone, right?!]

Anyway, I hope you have a great weekend.  My husband is doing the New York Marathon, so we're off to the big city for a little fun!

Mixed Up Media Chix - Summertime Blog Hop!

I have a fun project to share today!  Very excited about this one.  I've been working on it for over a week and...well...it's still not completely done, but it's getting there!
I've done this for a super wonderful friend that is going through a bit of a rough time.  She needs encouragement, so I'm putting together a little art journal to let her know how special she is.
And while this is a special gift, it's also part of a really fun blog hop I'm participating in with the other Mixed Up Media Chix!   Follow along...You'll truly be inspired.
So, if you need to start at the beginning:

Oh, guess what else is going on...
IT'S OFFICIALLY SUMMER.

Each page has a little journal page insert: 

This journal was made from lots of recycled stuff, including...wait for it....
Toilet Paper Rolls! (yeah, I know...totally cool, huh?)
Old Book Pages (including those from a h…

Cold Heartless Prank

I get a call this afternoon at work from "a friend" of my daughter's. He said that my daughter had been in a serious accident --> hit by a car. He told me that she had a compound fracture and was being taken to a hospital (he told me the name of the hospital). I asked a few more questions as my panic increased to almost hysteria. I had started to cry and was shaking pretty badly

My daughter lives across the country - literally. I was so frightened that something had happened and she was injured and well, you know....all sorts of terrible things started running through my head.

So, in a scurry, a few of my colleagues here at work searched Google and found the number for the hospital ER and the State Police for me. What a blessing they were.

The ER said that she hadn't arrived yet. They also said that they hadn't received any "codes", meaning, that at least they were not having an emergency brought in that was life threatening. The emergency room sugge…
