In the interests of actually posting something , I thought I'd take a quick photo of a little Valentine's vignette I put together. I love these and make one every once in a while just for fun. I love the semi-permanence , and just change them up when I feel like it. In this one , I used an old photo titled 'Modest and Shy was She' , and I've always loved it , the children are so sweet looking :).
I'm still working on three other projects - one being a Valentines wreath , and the other my first altered tin. Not quite sure how either will turn out , but I promise if they both stink I won't show you lol. The third is a talisman necklace - this somehow germinated from all the words people are choosing to define their goals. A word would have been so much easier *mutter mutter*.
Stay tuned , I may choose one after all.
I really want to do something for OWOH - But. I just found out that we're inheriting an entire set of kitchen cabinets about 4 months ahead of schedule , and I happen to work in my kitchen (yes , it's a complete disaster and about all I can say for it is the dishes do get done before I go to work lol). So , we'll see - what I have in mind is fairly simple , but I've decided if I don't get it done next week , I doubt I'll have the chance. My table - ohh *shoot me now* , the table! It would be bad enough just packing up the kitchen - but alllll the art stuff too - it depresses me to no end , just thinking about it.
I'll be curled up in the fetal position sobbing if anybody wants me.

to say hello! I've been busy wrapping up a Christmas that ran a bit late (for instance , we just went to the office party last weekend lol), and a sick kid and husband but I have been playing at the table and will have something to share soon.
Something interesting did happen though - I was asked to be in a small group called the Art Angels and it's a bit different , at least to me. We'll be sharing our art and sending little gifts to one another throughout the year - I thought that sounded fairly wonderful , lol. This was Lesley's idea , and I'm looking forward to it. The group includes people I've known for a while and some that are new to me and I think we're all going to enjoy getting to know one another better. And a little gift at the door is just Never a bad thing , is it?
be back soon!
