Latest projects

I've been busy messing up my nice clean and organized art zone.

First I made this clock for my Mario Bros. obsessed son. He was so funny when I gave it to him...he smiled so big and then did a fake pass out to show his glee.

My next project was a new address book. Our old one was your basic boring black faux leather. I found a REALLY ugly binder at a garage sale that would fit the bill as soon as I spruced it up a bit. Now I can keep my book out on the counter instead of buried in the drawer.

Clean and organized

I finally got my art zone clean and organized. I had made a really good dent in the organizing process a couple of months ago but then of course..I got sidetracked and the mess multiplied. I've been in an end of the school year panic. I've been trying to get as much cleaned and organized all through the house as I possibly can before I have both kids home ALL THE TIME.

still working out the bugs...

I'm having trouble getting my blog to look the way I'd like. The formatting is goofy and driving me crazy. I want the pictures to just sort of sit in amongst the text not totally mes with it! One of these days I get it all figured out. For now I'll just say sorry it looks odd. :)

Coffee themed altered book

I've been working on lots of projects...scrapbooking-altered style, my anniversary squares for ABC_altered book club, a framed memory box and lastly my COFFEE themed altered book. I'm not thrilled with my pages so far but I'm diving in anyway.

Baby, you can drive my car!

I've finished and mailed off my 15 4x4's for a chunky book swap on BookArtz. The theme just jumped out and grabbed me right away. I can't wait to see what the other participants create!

Mother's Day

I got the sweetest Mother's Day gift from my son today. Each 1st grader was given a blank book to create and illustrate a story about what mom means to them. It was so sweet it made me cry.

It was really funny reading what he sees as my job and what means the most to him. Apparently my ability to make pancakes is really high on his list.

What a treasure!

Countdown time again!

Lisa Vollrath once again is generously offering images from her site for Mothers Day. She has great stuff and well worth your time to check out her sites.

UGH!! typos stink!

I had just finished my 4x4 pages (16 of them) for a swap when I noticed a typo. I am thankful I noticed before sending them off but all that work...now ripping them back apart to fix my mistake! Where was my spell check when I needed it???

Right or left brained?

I thought this was kind of interesting.

You Are 35% Left Brained, 65% Right Brained

The left side of your brain controls verbal ability, attention to detail, and reasoning.

Left brained people are good at communication and persuading others.

If you're left brained, you are likely good at math and logic.

Your left brain prefers dogs, reading, and quiet.

The right side of your brain is all about creativity and flexibility.

Daring and intuitive, right brained people see the world in their unique way.

If you're right brained, you likely have a talent for creative writing and art.

Your right brain prefers day dreaming, philosophy, and sports.
