Blog Love, Books Club, Creations & Vacation!

Thank you so much to those who posted on my blog and made me feel all warm and fuzzy. It's always nice to hear from others and I was blatantly being a whiny butt, wasn't I?! I've loved reading everyone's comments and I'm going to look at everyone else's blogs this weekend!

I snuck in a final book club this evening before our trip (see below). We had a great time eating and discussing. The book Falling Leaves really made me mad. I hated the way the girl's family treated her. I seriously think they were insane or something. *eyeroll* I'm looking forward to our next book 'Watership Down'. Sounds interesting. After the meeting, I was given a tour of the hostess's house. She is a fabulous artist and every wall is graced with a gorgeous creation, you just want to go up and touch them. There were oil paintings, mono prints and collages. THEN, she took me, Lisa and Trish to see her art room. I drooled I think. I love it there! Built in wooden long wide drawers to store stuff, unfinished projects sitting there like eye candy and an 'ideas' wall with inspiration galore. She also showed us the book about her China trip she has been working on. Little works of art on each page in oils, watercolors and markers. Fabulous!!


Trish is begging for pics of some projects I finished up so I'm posting them for her (and anyone else who wants to take a gander.)

First two are the last catalog cards for the swap I was in with the AlteredArtSwaps Yahoo Group.


These are the 'pocket fairies' I made for the BMuse Yahoo Group. Please meet my girls 'Feather', Gertrude', 'India' and 'Lacey'. (CLICK FOR CLOSEUP, and open your screen up.)



Here are some cards I made for the Art By Moonlight DT using ABM stamps and collage sheets (made 3 cards, 2 ATCs):



It's VACATION TIME! We're hitting the open road! Traveling across country! I can't wait! We're going to my parents house for several weeks. I've packed until my brain hurts from mental list making and crossing off. I carefully picked out art supplies, stamping stuff and fabric for quilting. I have ordered DVDS, books on CD and art books from the library for our trip. I have also packed clothes, snacks and more stuff that I can count. I'm done. We leave in the morning. Never fear, I will be blogging from GA. I'll just be more relaxed doing it...

Trisha said...

Yep, you drooled (as did I).

The fairies were lovely enough on their own, but the pockets are a perfect match for each of them--I'm lovinum even more now . . . but Fastball Fannie is still my favorite!
