Happy Monday to all.  Started working on some Christmas cards using more of the Tim Holtz line and some twine.  Voila:

I am thankful for my family.

Three Muses-Mail Art Challenge

Three Muses challenge this week is mail art.


Thanksgiving Cards

It's hard to believe that Thanksgiving is next week.  I'm working fast, making some cards for my family.  I broke down and used my Tim Holtz paper on the cards, along with some ribbon in my stash. 

May you be full of blessings.

Rainy Days...

Raining, clothes washing, drying, and time for a little sunshine.  I scrapped what was suppose to be monochromatic, but I forgot while doing it, and painted some blue gouache on the picture and page.  This is in Stonington, CT, a few years back, when we were able to pick up our little one and carry her to the car after she washed her feet in the brisk Atlantic Ocean. 

Collage Obsession Challenge

From the site, they have science and Einstein as the theme.  I did a tag collage,with some wild hair on his head, just for a whimsical touch!  Enjoy.

Scrapping by candlelight

Scrapping by candlelight.  Here is a picture of the studio, a seat closest to the window for more light.  I never caught anything on fire, but wished I had a fire burning to keep us warm.  I'm sure, one day, all the photo's I took of the days without power will show up on the blog, trees down, snow in the tub for toilet water, spoiled lab dogs, etc...

And the power is on!

Ten days without power, and ten days of scrapping by flashlights and candlelight.  And  now, we are blessed to have power, phone and internet back.  You just don't realize how much you use things until they are gone.  Here are some of the layouts I did by candle light.  It was fun, but by day 7 I was frustrated, reaching for something that ran on electricity.  But it taught me to use what I had and to keep it simple.  Oh and paint, glimmer mist, etc...takes longer to dry a 45 degree cold room!  The things I learned...

I'm so excited, I get to take a mixed media class at Inspiration Station, in CT this coming weekend.  I can't wait, it will be so much fun.
Hope all is well for everyone.
