LOL WOW this summer has just been a whirl wind so far for us. Seems I just can't keep up...I'm behind on shipping, packaging, ARTing, swaps, weeding, etc....my craft room it UPSIDE DOWN and horrible...which is not the norm for me and drives me nuts. So bad I'm having to move piles to work...this will have to change soon, maybe today will be the day I have to spend a day putting things away.
Sunday Sam and I spent the entire day cleaning out the garage (which is all his....I have more than my fair share in the house)....he asked for my help and I knew he needed it. We took everything out of the garage and put it in piles/sections all over our driveway and yard YIKES......tools, fishing, camping, etc. Then section by section we put it back into the garage. We came in and ate supper at 10:15pm. Woooo we're we tired. But WOW what an improvement. Did I mention it was HOT...about 100 degrees.
Yesterday was Sam's day off so we went and unloaded all our recycle and then went to Lowe's (to return some wire)...ended up with $80 worth of plants and lightbulbs. LOL GEEEEEZZZZ I'll be adding a few flowers in the front and Sam is adding a suculant/catus mini garden in the back...in a pot that I just love but can't seem to keep anything alive in. LOL
so here is some ART that I have managed to get done lately...
sometime back I made this June Lottery ATC for PID...but forgot to post it. LOL
For the FIsh Hangie Dangie swap with AAWA. I made this hanger...I used a vintage bookcover, some paint, vintage lace, wire, and old map and book page painted with the extra paints (which I used monday in some more projects...I always squirt out too much paint), fabric, trims, images, glass glitter and a button. Didn't know what on earth to do for a fish piece...but this was FUN!
I made this card for a friend recovery from sugery...
and for the PID Weekly Challenge...Postage Stamps....I made these....an ATC and a 3x3 collage (yes with the leftover paint papers from the fish hangie)
