I do...for ever and ever

Just a page in another art journal. 
I didn't have any idea where I was going with it until it all came together. 

I'm finding that I'm working more and more that way lately. 

As an aside...I'm looking at moving my blog to Wordpress to actually USE the domain Mr. G bought for me a while back. 
I'm having anxiety about making the move since I've been with Blogger for so long.
When I make the move I hope you will come visit me there....
I'll definitely keep you posted...

Baby, it's cold outside...

So glad the kids don't have school today!! 
We can stay in and stay warm.

Although the cold is doing it's best to try to get in...

That is ice on the inside of the front door. I even made a draft stop but the cold is persistent.

Anybody needs me...I'll be under a blanket, drinking tea.

Quiet Memory

A second page in my new journal. 
Remembering the day I took hundred's of nature photos and collected seeds with an old friend.

Clever kid

I've been sorting beads and making a few more wine charms lately. 

Little J always wants to get in on the act with me. This morning she comes up with this wine glass charm! 
It's my new favorite of all time.
I never would have seen that in those beads. 
Her mind works so much differently than mine. That's why she's a master Lego builder too.
Me...not so much.

Art Journal

Putting paint to pages of a book is very freeing.

This was a cookbook I never used. 
All it did was take up space,
a new journal is born.

Little bits of this and that hoarded over time. 
Such as the paint strip. 
Bayou blue is the color Big J picked for his room. 
It reminds me of medical scrubs but whatever...he likes it.

Pieces of projects and experiments.
Like bits of rusted fabric.
Polymer clay leaves from the one and only time I crafted with it. Yuck! Hate the smell of that stuff.
As well as a deconstructed silk flower that I used a script rubber stamp across for interest.

Wish Jar

No, this isn't a work of art...
it's just something I did quickly to cover a hot cocoa container. I may pretty it up more...or not.

I read about a great way to painlessly save for Christmas all year long and thought....hmmm...

We have our 20th wedding anniversary coming up in a little over 15 months. We've always talked about going someplace special for each of our "big number" anniversaries but never have. Mostly because we had little kids at the time. Now that they are older, I think it's time.

So I've decided that every $5 bill that crosses my path goes directly through the slot I cut in the lid. I'm not going to look, count, or in anyway keep track until it's time to open it to pay for our trip.

Mr. G is on board the our savings plan. We are both excited to see how much we can save. Since cash isn't a commodity we use a lot, it could be slow going. When I told my mom about what we were doing and she sweetly slipped me the $5 bills she had on hand.

What do you think of our plan??

Summer Breeze


I got up early...well, early for the weekend...and  this is what poured out of me.

The cold weather has me dreaming of summer now that the Holiday season is over.

Happy New Year 2013

First of all....
Hope you all had a wonderful New years eve!!  
Best wishes to all in 2013.

I have decided to pick a word for the year once again.
This year I have chosen  "Simplify" .  
I'll use this word as a guide in the year to come.

Thank you so much for continuing to read and follow my blog.
