Because Art Should be Play and Not Work

Four Months have Come and Gone

Trying to revive the blogging habit is difficult--but once again I am back to give it another go. First of all my use took a very long vacation, but finally SHE'S BAAACCCKKK....


I named this "Reclaiming the Muse". I'm not sure if she's back to stay or not--only time will tell..but while she's here I decided to "make hay while the sun shines" so to speak and I finally watched the videos from a classs I signed up for in March called "Creatures" taught by Roxanne Coble. A very fun class using lots of tiny patterns and details which was right up my alley. This is the journal spread I made.


May is always a busy month--my birthday is in May; Mother's Day is in May; and our anniversary is in May. This year was our 20th anniversary--



Then and now!!

And I leave you with this photo I found on Facebook--I don't know who took it

Your work is truly amazing. Both pieces are just magical. I'm going to check if Roxanne Coble is still offering the class you mentioned. Sounds intriguing. Happy Birthday and Anniversary! LOVED the kissing booth photo.
