I am so excited. Today was the first real, real nice day of spring. I know it has only been spring for a little while but it was so nice. Nice enough for me to put on the old painting clothes and start painting on the drive way. Most people in my neighborhood know me only by me painting something on the driveway! I always have some sort of project that I ‘have’ to paint. Today it was my vegetable box. It has been standing in (the way) in the garage all winter, bugging my husband. ...Read Full Post »

I know I know it has been a while since I posted last. I have been busy with my kids, but I have not sat still on the art front. I have done loads of things. Did I mention in the past blogs that I made a teesha journal? I might have. Anyway, I spent days making my little journal. I was so proud of it. I mailed it certified-mail to the next person in line and IT GOT LOST!!!! My little journal. I sent and receive so much art through the mail, and this was the one thing I really did not want to ...Read Full Post »

I have been so busy with all sorts of things, that I had some mail art to return to some of my artist friends. So today i dedicated to getting up to speed on all of them. Well I think I still have two more to do. I did get 6 envelopes done today and I had a good time. Had some help from my kids along the way. I am pretty tired right now, so i am just going to leave you with the images for now. More blogginf to follow tomorrow!

Sorry, I haven't posted in a little while. I have been doing art, I just have not had the time to post it here in my blog. I have been training for my triathlon, and that is also taking up a lot of time! That and taking care and raising four boys! The boys have a half day school today and i promised to start a new 'tradition'; we are going to the local library for the first time this afternoon. Which reminds me I still have to find out where it is... I figured I can do one more thing with the...Read Full Post »

Well hello there Followers,
I know I know I told you I would see ya'll again this weekend, but I had some time to work on a Nature Journal page for VBR. This is not a 8 by 10, but a 4 by 5, so tiny tiny compared to the big boys I have been doing.
The 3 boys are watching their movie from Blockbuster: The Three Ninja's! So they have been pretty quiet, which gave me a minute to work on some art. Oh, did I mention that the three boys now actually think that they are ninja's? It is to...Read Full Post »

So after I fixed my day a couple of days ago I made a couple more journal pages. I have been SO busy with life! I have spent a good amount of time at the gym training. I feel good, and making great progress, but I am also very tired! As it turns out my friend Corrie, who I made The Crazy Day journal page for, did like the Caged Bird page. After I explained, my day really was crazy, so crazy I made the wrong journal page, while I still had a ton of other stuff to do, she said she would like to...Read Full Post »

So after the bad start of my day. The part where I made a wrong journal page, I was in a bad mood. So I vowed not to do any more art that day. But I had too. I knew that if I would make something I was supposed to, it would lift my mood. So i did it! I made another page which is themed: Royal Women. That was a hard one for me, because I couldn't think of anything, and had never done something like that before. So a challenge is always good, and I think my page did turn out pretty good. I am h...Read Full Post »

Yes i have lost it. I have been working so hard on my journal pages. I finished another one today. One problem: I used a theme that I was not supposed to use! So now I can't use it afterall. SHOOT~!!!!!! So now back to the drawing board. I have to make pages for the following themes: 'Crazy Day', 'Zetti', and 'Royal Women'. ARGGGHHH this makes me so mad. Now I am all done for the day, don't feel like starting any other pages today....
So here it is, this is the all-for-...Read Full Post »

Well I had a good day. I did a little bit of everything I was supposed to do today! We got up early around 6am. Which was good. We all had breakfast, waffles with chocolate spread on them, yammy. Then I was off to the gym, I did my uphill spinclass and a little run afterwards. So that was good. Then I spend some time in my favorite spot at the gym: "the reading corner". I am now 1/4 into the book, that I am supposed to have finished by tomorrow night. Pfew, Let's see if I can make it. Anyone ...Read Full Post »

Well today was a gym day, if i'm looking at my schedule that my hunky husband made for me. I was actually doing good with my third journal page, so i was going to skip the gym. I guess that is the artist in me, not the athlete. My mistake: i already told my boys they could go to the 'club' today. So they just came down here, all dressed up: "Mom we got dressed to go to the gym!" Great so now i have to go. So off to the gym i go, go for a run and a swim.
I would like to show...Read Full Post »
