"Wake My Muse" New size!! 9" x 12" Yes, new size! I am using tag board...usually used for paper cuttings! Know what I mean Vern?! Trying it out for size...seems to be holding up to my collaging abusage!!! ***grin***
As you can see by this piece of art I have needed to get out of the house....the weather is bitter cold and has been snowing off and on for the last few days. Alot like Washington State weather...state of the evergreens, Snoqualmie Pass etc.....You get the drift..Anywho I have got ants in my pants to get my Christmas shopping done....haven't even started...if i wait on the Hub....it will be all last minute...and I am sure you know...when your last minute shopping there is nothing to pick from!
I however...have found out that my landlord is creative!!! She makes those dolls with the ever so pretty crocheted dresses, hats, even a pretty crocheted basket with flowers! They are so precious! Oh wait my oldest got one of her dolls that she received for her 21st birthday from her! Will take photo!
Back to the Journal Art Pages....I have many more in the making....I cut out many images that tricked my trigger in different magazines and just wet to town collaging! My landlord caught me at it and offered the magazines that they received! Heck Ya!!! Got to love landlords like that! They are the best and the sweetest!
It is Friday and a bit of family time so I must go til another time!!!!
I don't know what to say.... Audrey has given me this lovely
award! Thank you so very much Audrey!! xoxoxo I really don't deserve these sweet awards...I haven't really been here....I haven't really done any blogging lately .....I looked! It has been 5 whole days! I was thinking..."Really?....5 days?!....I guess I really havent been good at kicking my hubby out of my computer chair huh? LOL Audrey...I do...very much...appreciate and love the award....Thank you! I have hope of being here more and try to inspire as many souls as I can in my lifetime!!!
Oh! Hey! It snowed early this morning....my 21 year old daughter Sarah took this photo at just past Midnight (yes that is considered morning lol) Take a look!
***GRIN*** "Ha Ha Ha old man (to her dad) after it LOL He just does not like snow one bit!
And just what was she doing out there at that time...we had had a long long looooong day at the doctors office...to find out she has Pneumonia (walking Pneumonia)....Poor dear.
Look who is trying his best to sit up!!! Awwwwwww Gabe! You are just the cutest little man!! Love you sugar bear!
"Insomnia" Hope I spelled that right!? Anywho that is the extent of my sleeping or not so sleeping habits these days....ugh...except for last night after our not so pleasant time of waiting and waiting and waiting at the doctors office...I was quite wore out and slept somewhat like a log but from what my hubby said...all over the place...said...that I took over ALL the pillows and slept sideways for the most part of the night...funny to me...but not so funny for him!
AAAAAAAnywayyyyyyss...Not my favorite piece of art but it definately says what needs to be said.
I was able to slip in next to my hubby whilst he was working at the puter desk....where my puter sits also...offline of course...and get a whoppin load of collage element sheets done for my group Collage Play with Crowabout....a miracle in itself I might add...but it is true I have some fun stuff lined up for those wonderfully talented artist members of the group!!! I have not been able to be online like I would like to be since hubby works online most of the time and we have to take turns (***cough*** he doesn't share equally LOL) I just kind of non chalantly(sp) ease up by the desk and steal the mouse hehehhehehe and do what work I can offline...a bit crowded but I GIT ER DUN...LOL
If there is anyone...while I have not been here AHEM (directed at mr. man) that have emailed with their request to join Collage Play with Crowabout and have not received an invite to the group.........PLEASE EMAIL ME....Please! I do not want anyone who has requested to join to feel left out!! To Helen...I've got your back girl! Your invite is on it's way!! I just know I have missed a few requests...so email me again and I do apologize for not getting to it sooner....AND while I am out and about I will by ME my OWN notebook to write these down in so WHEN it is MY time to use the COMPUTER...I will be ready...and not starry eyed from not knowing WHOM and WHO I haven't sent invites to!! That was not directed towards anyone who has interest in the group LOL ...Don't get me wrong I love my hub so dearly...and I know he works extremely hard for his job...but I do miss you all and I do miss me....I am sure some of you know what I am talking about!
I just know I am forgetting something...but with the little time I have on here it has to be quick so please understand for my ranting and raving or what ever you want to call it....We're good right???!! lol
Much love and hugs!!! Creating something already!!! Show me!!
I am so happy my little Grandbaby Gabe is home and we got to celebrate his very first Halloween and Trick or Treat with him!!! I captured this photo just as we got out of our mini van to go haunt us up some treats!! Now I may be his Grandma...but isn't just the cutest little lion you ever did see?! I could just eat him up! Those sweet cubby cheeks, little hands and little feet with such adorable tiny toes!!
He is quite the busy one since he has come back home! He has rolled over...trying to get his first teeth in (oh im sure you know how fun that is lol)...he wants to sit up so bad but his belly is so chubby and his bum bum so round oh what joy he brings me! He is babbling and trying to spit out words...so far "blah blah" is his first closeness to a word...we are still not sure what it means to him but none the less it cute! Oh and he loves to imitate his Grandpa...when Grandpa coughs he fakes a cough...way too funny! :O)
Ok, so while I was gone...not willingly might I add...I did manage to get some art done...and lots of cleaning (ugh) I assure you that, that wasn't so willingly either LOL Where have I been you ask? I will tell you....Since my hub is now working remote from home...and as you know...one and only one internet connection....he has been on the computer non stop...literally! I told him he needs to quit holding my computer hostage for so long...I have a life too LOL Sheesh! I apologize to all my readers and my group members....oh how I miss you all so much!! This will not happen again....I swear! Even if at midday I have to overturn the computer chair with my hub in it LOL :OP on you mister mister!
Speaking of which! Here is the puter hog at Halloween! LMAO!
I'm gonna get a hurtin' ...I just know it! LOL
This is my daughter Tima...the skinny little thing she is...I really don't know where she puts that big heart of hers at!! :O) What a princess!
