I love the rainy weather!

We don't get too much of it in California. So when the weather is yucky, I get to stay inside and play. It's so hard to stay in when the weather is gorgeous!

I had such a fun art day today! I had the opportunity to finish these Artist Trading Pins (ATPs) for a swap on Bmuse. I love the way they came out and they are the perfect size.

These are a couple of ATCs I made today. they are both for swaps in Bmuse.
I'm in a monthly 4 x 4 swap in Mail Art by Design. This is the Dance themed one that i made for my trading partner.

The 4 x 4's have made it to Vickie...

I was finally able to meet Vickie face to face tonight. My son went to a party not too far from Andrew's house and Gary, my DH, and I were able to drive there. I gave her all the beautiful pages bound into 4 fabulous books. It was truly wonderful to see her face. I think she really couldn't believe what she had in her hands.

Thank you all for helping with this project. You made her VERY happy!

My life is so busy...

This piece is for a Paper Whimsy challenge. It was so hard; the pieces just didn't flow for me. I tried my best...I like my final product. I just don't know if the person sponsoring the challenge does. Oh, and learn!

This is an ATC for a Friends weekly challenge. I love these tones are my favorite to work with.

This is my Sheet Music lottery entry. It reminds me of the Osmond Brothers.

I'm in a western themed swap. I can't seem to get Brokeback Mountain out of my head. General Custer was an interesting character...

Thanks Goodness This Week Is Over!

What a week this has been. We had off Monday and Tuesday was the 100th Day of School. Wednesday was Valentine's Day and the rest of the week was a bust! Kindergartners are high maintenance. Thank God for summers!!!

My latest atcs from this week. Enjoy!

My "Serenity" Circle Journal

I am doing a word Cirlce Journal, more commonly known as a Round Robin, with a different group of women. I'm VERY excited about this because it is a group of women I do not know at all. I truly hope they don't gag when they see my art. Their art is BEAUTIFUL; very neat and well thought out. Mine is, well, like my days. Serene and happy or just insane! The word for my journal is SERENITY...wishful thinking!
