Look at this cute doll Linda made! So cute, so funky! Every thing I love!
Oh what am I going to do we only have 2 left and the next one is mine! I have really loved and enjoyed each and every ornament I have received.

I am so honored to be trading with these talented ladies!

Day #10 of our Christmas exchange--Terrie

A lovely, intricate ornament using a vintage spool, words from a Silent Night, and glittery accents! So sweet Terrie!

Day #9 of our Christmas exchange--Hope's flower fairy pin!

Hope is day # 9 and she made this lovely flower pin! It is so scrumptious! I am going to wear it this weekend with my winter cuff!

Day #8 of our 13 day Christmas exchange--Corrine!

This beautful paper garland is not givien justice in my photo here. I put it on my 2 ft tree, but it is not Christmas themed so you can use it all year round. I got to make one of these Corrine, I am inspired.

Raw Art Journaling, found poetry

This is poetry found in a single page of text. I took a page and marked out the words I did'nt want and left the one I did want. I am not a poet or a writer but it is interesting what comes up.


Never remember,


dropped behind,


silently to succeed,

She arrived a few seconds ahead.

Found Poetry from Raw Journaling online class

This exercise in Raw Art Journaling, by Quinn McDonald is to find found words in magazines and books and write a poem with them.

This is my result. Interesting.

Imagine light,

at a glance,

See the bright side,

Reinventing your art.

Three Vision cards for 2011

Focus was my first word and I need focus in my work and in my life. I used a bull eye to hone in and to take control and see clearly.

Vision cards

Create is my mantra for the year. To go in my studio and make stuff!
I used ccereal box es cut into 5 x 7 pieces. Covered them with tissue paper and when dry painted them and used painted paper towels to cover each element, her is a flower "create" bloooming into life.

This is one of three vision word cards I did for a deck I was a part. The card is 5 x 7.

Vision is something I hope to have in the year 2011. Clear sight intuitive insigths into myself and the world around me. Hopefully this will come out in my art.
