Words to Ponder

Time is the coin of your life and only you can determine how it is spent. Be careful or you will let others spend it for you. - Carl Sandburg

Head in the Clouds

There are no creative juices flowing cause I have been sick....but I did get a new or rather an old....blueprint table for my studio. I have to clean it up and then will move it in and am VERY excited for it.  Enjoy the photos taken on the way back from a recent trip.....my head was in the clouds literally....LOL.

Sher's Room

Okay, we all got a mini lesson with Tim Holtz's vagabond from Sher while in Florida and some....not all of us....got to see Sue's room as well!  It is lots of fun that we all share the same hobby....even John likes loopy brads but Terri won't let him play with them often.  The last photo is a painting Morgan's husband Chris painted for Sher.....he is an unbelievable artist. He works with a variety of mediums and all are fabulous!

Time flies

Boy I had all sorts of art goals for the summer and where did it go?  I did some of them but not as many as I would have liked. I have had a lot of fun with my camera tho.

Brayer Fun

Used your brayer recently....me neither....I forget about it ....but you can do so much with it! Took these pictures at a recent stamping show.

New idea?

This may or may not be a new idea for some of you. It was for me.  I didn't make this card. It was made by Sarah at a booth at a recent stamp show and she said that we will see a lot of this coming soon where you leave the focal point white.

Fairy Door Fun

Do you know about the Fairy Doors? My sister Sher told me about them while visiting Ann Arbor.  You can find them other places but they sure are fun to investigate.
