I was upset to see that CSI was a repeat....but happy to get a little ART in. This weeks challenge at Wednesday Stamper is HALLOWEEN. So I pulled out a few new stamps and my old spiderweb and candy corn stamps and made these tonight.
Today was another busy day, with little ART time!! It was Sam's day off....more work on the house, bringing my car to the shop (thank goodness it's under warranty that includes a rental car---alternator and O2 sensor are being replaced), other running around. Busy, busy, busy.
I did get this ATC made for the Top Hat Design Works Halloween ATC contest.
Speaking of little men. Our son, Braydon turned 12 yesterday.
We had a good time celebrating and I think he did too (see 2nd photo---the loot count---LOL)!! and the cake was really good.
Just amazing how fast the time goes.
This picture was taken of Brynna last night and she just looks so grown up. She is talking, learning and potty training now. She wore a big lacy yellow dress last night that she calls...."woo woo".
What a weekend we had -----UGH!! Last week Braydon (our son) brought home a virus and was sweet enough to share with all of us, except Brandi. I was the last to get it and the longest to keep it. UGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH But we are all better now YIPPIE!!
Friday night was the big rivalry football night and Friday evening the girls were putting on their war paint. LOL Yes, Brandi did the painting and luckily it come off their shirts.
I made two more pieces for Bernie Berlin's Artists Unleashed auctions...
It was a long night ... (when they're quiet you know something is up) LOL
Oh yeah, this is Brandi's latest drawing.
She got the idea for this one from a digital image she made
She really loves to draw.
well, I've got ... ART to do and a little one to play with. Hope everyone has a WONDERFUL week!!
Yesterday, I made this ACEO for Bernie Berlin's ARTIST'S UNLEASHED charity auctions. Bernie is such a sweetheart and I want to help, even if just a little. So I'll be working on things to send her for about the next week. She's still taking ART donations if you'd like to send a piece to her. Anyway--you can click on her name and follow the link to get all the details. Another way to help out a little is to check out the FUN products in Bernie's CafePress A PLACE TO BARK Shop.
Earlier this week I made these two Altered Tin Lid Ornaments and this slide Shadow Box Ornament.
A week or two ago I made these earrings and forgot to share them.
These ornaments and earrings are available in my ETSY Shop.
We are back and catching up from a FUN weekend at "the farm". Our BIL's family has a farm in Mexia (pronounced Ma-hay-ia), Texas. The weather was absolutely BEAUTIFUL!! I've included a photo album of some of the pictures from this weekend...on the top right (you can click on the album and then each thumbnail to look at the photos in a larger size) or click here------>FARM PICTURES
We all had a blast feeding the cows, making smores, walking the trails, etc (of course the guys were hunting).
Friday I made this ATC for the Top Hat Friendship lottery...
The Altered Postcard Swap Pictures are up on the ARTeZine Website <-----just click here, click new stuff, click New for 2006, go down to the bottom of the list and click Altered Vintage Postcard. There were so many BEAUTIFUL entries!! This was such a FUN swap to host!!
Speaking of BEAUTIFUL things. If you want to see some really BEAUTIFUL ART...my friend, Kelly Snelling, has updated her picturetrail with her latest BREATHTAKING ART!! WOW
Brynna (our youngest) loves to scribble and color on anything she can get her hands on. So this week while doing some supply shopping I bought her her first pack of big fat crayons. So while the big kids do homework...she sits and colors, they are usually done before she is. LOL Last night she sat in her high chair and colored. Brandi (our oldest) sat and drew at the desk and I worked on some ART at my work table. The "boys" ...Sam my DH and Braydon our second oldest played at the other computers.
Here are two pieces that I finished last night!! Friday night
a 4x4 hanger
"everything tastes better with chocolate cake"
well, this is how far I got updating my blog before our internet and phone went out Saturday morning. Time Warner still hasn't made it out to help yet, but Sam hit the reset button this morning and it's working fine.
Sam is on vacation this week (hunting season is here!) and it's so nice to have some extra time....ahhh.
Anyway, so here's the other piece I finished Friday night...
It's a large altered formica tag
Saturday morning I made these altered postcards as my entries for the ARTezine Altered Postcard Swap I'm hosting, these 2 ATCs and a christmas ornament just for FUN!!
Well, now I'm off to play catch up on all the email, ETSY stuff, etc.
