Been a while

I know it's been a while since my last post. My daughter is starting to crawl now and requires more attention. She is so sweet. Also, I've been working on a series of small designs that has been keeping me busy. I hope to have them done in the next month. So many things to think about...so little time! In the meantime, I figured I'd post my submission I did to QA. I'm not sure if it will make it to the next issue, so send some blessings my way! For the challenge, it was called "Doorway to Your Imagination" so I thought about what would be the keys that would unlock the door? And, so I thought about what was needed in your imagination...like having aspirations, dreams, vision..etc. The door itself was done in pastels and I accented all the stones, steps, etc with black thread. I also used webbing spray on the fabric.

A Cool Website

I just thought this was the coolest thing. I was searching around for pictures of the inserts to the 45's because I think they would make an interesting compositional element in a quilt and I came across this. So, I decided to produce my first record. You can make your own record here. If you do, please email me back, I'd love to hear what you decide to "record."

On my wish list

I've been looking for some time a good product where you can get airbrush results without a compressor. So, when I saw this, I thought this is a great "wish list" item. The problem is you also need to invest in the pens. I wish I knew how this would work on fabric. I wonder if they bleed? Maybe I should buy one pen and see. But, they give some really great results on paper from what I've seen.
This product (Copic) you just attach the pen to an air can. Pretty nifty eh?

Gifts from Abroad

I received Doreen's package. And, boy, what a treat! Check out all the goodies! She made me 4 lovely cards. We did a trade using shaving cream, fairies and artist choice. I'm thinking Doreen needs to teach classes at her local shop not take them. I really like the torn paper effect she did on the art deco lady. And, the shaving cream card is made with fabric...isn't that cool. Also, Doreen gets these really special paper flowers and she sent me some. I'm very lucky to be able to trade with Doreen. Thank you so much for the trade!
