I am finally posting some items I made. Its been a while but sometimes life (and work) gets in the way of me spending time in my "therapy room".
This first piece is for my art group I am in. The theme was nature so, I stamped nature.
I was browsing the net and found a very odd but cool thing to make. It's odd cause you use empty Toilet Paper rolls! This was a fun project. Its a tag book. Here is what I made:
Also, I finally attempted to make some tags inspired by our wonderful Tim Holtz.
I had a blast doing them even though I only made 3. Here they are:
Thanks for looking and remember, all comments are welcome!!!

Well, I went to the art fair on the 14th of November. My daughters came and helped out and my friend Toni also came. We had a pretty good time meeting new people and just talking. I did okay considering there were over 80 vendors.
Our clocks were the hit. Many people came by to look and comment, We did sell 5 of them so that was good. Hopefully we will get same phone calls for orders. If anyone has any questions about the clocks, feel free to email me!
Enjoy the pictures and comment if you like.
Thanks for looking

Well, yet another group of cards I made. I just love to make them. They will be added to the inventory for the Art Fair on the 14th of Nov. Whatever sells, great. Whatever doesn't, I will use them.
The first batch were made using Rock Candy by Ranger. That is the coolest stuff!!
After it dried, I used Distressing Ink over the image. Makes it look pretty cool.
The second batch was done using peel off stickers. They were colored using Bic markers. Too fun! I love to color.
Enjoy and thanks for looking!

I was very blessed to be able to have the day off and go "play" at my friend Sheryl's house on Friday. Her sister Rhonda is visiting from out of town and we had a great time!
I completed a couple of cards pictured below.
I also had to complete the "bird" theme for the round robin for my art group. Here is what I came up with.
Thanks for looking and have a great day!

I went to a Scrapbook and Stamp Expo on the 24th and found these mini dominoes and decided to try my hand at altering them. This is what I came up with.
I used alcohol ink and then stamped on top of that. (The stamps are new too.)
Here is a card I made using one of the dominoes.
Here are some other cards.
This one says "What do you think I do all Day, sit around the house?

I am trying to get caught up on my card making for an art fair on the 14th of Nov. and trying to get enough cards done for me to send out. Here is a sample of my cards.
Also, the art group that I am in has that round robin going on and I was to do something with the theme of funny ladies. So, since Lucy is one of my favorites, I came up with this collage...It's the first picture.
I apologize for the blurry pictures...it was either too much coffee or just not enough.
Thanks for looking!
