October 28th

One more post for today, but this one is actually for tomorrow. Tomorrow Preston and I will celebrate our 12th wedding anniversary. Wow! it has flown by. Can't believe we are old married folk. It's been fun looking at these wedding pictures and thinking about this special day, 12 years ago. Love ya Preston.

What up?

This is a new rolo for the rolodex swap on I made some last night while the kids watched "Chicken Little" which is a very cute movie. I also got up early and finished an album I am making for a cousin of a cousin. I just need to buy some more page protectors for it and add them and it's done. Today we are going across the street to carve pumkins, watch for pictures to come. We will be going to "Light the Night" at Calvary Church on Wednesday and the Fall Festival on St. John's next weekend, so watch for some fall celebration pictures to follow.

The Red Bee is having their Gallery Event tonight, so I am going to pop over there and see how my trading cards did in the contest and look over the silent auction items. That's what's up. What up with you?

Garage Sales

I went garage sailing (sp) today with Stan and Merrilee, but didn't find much more than a book and a frame. But yesterday on the way to school, Emma and I stopped at a great sale that had lots of vintage Christmas decor. We were almost late for school, but these are what I found. Looking forward to the holidays.

Go Red Sox

We have adopted the Red Sox, since the Angels are out of it. Go Red Sox!

Birthday Page

I got these cool chipboard stickers by Me and My Big Ideas, and I made this fun birthday page for Emma. Her birthday was last month, but I had to share it. I will be displaying this page at the Red Bee. I also did a Christmas Chipboard book for display, but I am still working on it. More to come.

Funky Art

Feeling a little funky artness. I have been so busy this week, but things are slowing down with the fires. The kids can't have sports practices because of the air quality around here. So what would normally be a busy Wednesday after school is turning out to be free. Maybe I'll have time to finish a few projects, and start some new ones. What has your week been like? What are you working on?

altered organizer

I found this wooden organizer at a thrift store a couple of days ago, and I painted it then papered it with the new MOD paper line. Now I can fill it up with paper and markers. I should have taken a before picture, cuz it looks a lot better.


These are my latest layouts for the Red Bee. I posted them there yesterday. The isles are really filling up with design team layouts. The store looks great.

Black and Orange

This is what I have been working on the last couple of nights. Inspired by Kris Hurst and her cute things on her blog. Avoiding other things.


Just had to post, because I haven't in a while. No new pics, though I am working on a few things. Just been busy with the kids practices and games and all. I love that the weather is cooling off. It really gets me in the fall/winter mode. I need to works on Christmas stuff for Mistletoe Mall, but I am caught up in the October holiday. I'll post soon.

This is fun. My jr. higher's are painting egg cartons for a project. They are working on pattern in art, so we are creating circle patterns in bright colors. Next we will add small text to make our art say something. These look awesome. Can't wait to hang them up. They remind me of Chuck Close's art.

This cool tin house card made by Roc Nicholas. I love this. I need to try this technique. Sooooo cool! and:

all this cool Sweet and Sinister stuff from the S&S swap on artsy mama's blog. Tricia from Vintage Bliss was my swap partner and she really took care of me. I love the little hanging pumpkins and the sign and trick or treat bag. I especially like the pumpkin head figure. More to add to my tree. What did you get in the mail?

eye candy

Just sharing some pics I have saved on my computer. Just some eye candy for October. Can't believe it's here already. Happy October. Hope you find lots of inspiration in it. I have been sick this weekend, so not much creativity happening here. I hope to bounce back quick though, cuz there is so much to do. What are you working on? Anything inspiring? I can always use inspiration.
