Happy Valentine's Day

This little treasure is by Lisa Kaus. I found it in a little gallery here in Washington. The picture does not do it justice, but if I waited to get a better shot I might not get it posted at all.
Please excuse my absence. I have been trying to get back into the exercise routine and this is causing my whole schedule to be off. I also tend to hibernate in the winter, but the days are getting longer and hopefully I will be a better blogger.

Last but certainly not sweet petunia lost her two front teeth and every time she smiles it just makes me smile. I hope it makes you smile too!

I am back from my blogging hiatus and I hope you all had a wonderful and artful holiday!

I have been working on making and finishing several journals. The first two pictures are the cover and back of a journal created using the "Teesha" method with Fabriano Paper. The second set of 3 pictures are collages on a pre-made journal to use for general notes at the Art Nest coming up in February. I also finished sewing some signatures in the fabric journal I had started back in October. Yep...I am trying to finish some of my projects that have been sitting around. Taking little steps in the direction I want to out closets and the studio. I hope all those little projects add up to one organized studio, house and closets.

I also had the pleasure of meeting up with the new Seattle Art group. We had sooo much fun working on projects and chatting. What a wonderful group of artists. It was fun to see what everyone was working on and hear about things going on in the area. The lovely lady behind the painting is Tara Ross.
