It is Friday !!!

I have listed the following little collages in my etsy shop. I did some different kinda things with these little pieces. I hope you like them.

This week seems like it has been soooo long. It started out crazy and seems to be ending as such. Thursday I went into my kids school to volunteer and when we arrived there were firetrucks everywhere. During drop off.... a minivan lost control and drove into the front of the building. Thank God there were no kids walking into school at the time. The mother was flown to Baltimore ...... the school did a great job with directing the kids and parents and by 10:00 am things were back to normal, however everyone seemed shaken a bit. I ended up being a sub for my sons class as the instructional assistant. Today my oldest came home with a 102.5 fever and I had to spend my evening sitting on the dirty cafeteria floor with my youngest watching Madagascar 2 for the Family Fun night at the school . I can not complain..... it is 10:00 and everyone is asleep and I can sip my tea and relax, tomorrow is but another day!

I survived......

Well, I survived my crazy day yesterday! I have found that when you are thrown into a web of craziness that involves at the very least a dozen or so children....... having food helps. I did not eat anything until about 2:00 in the afternoon and I was so hungry that I did not realize how hungry I was!

Today I spent much of my time being creative. The above is some shots of some experimenting I am doing. I am not so sure about it yet , but It is fun to try different things.

This is a very bad picture of a piece I created for just my family. It is our family portrait.

Here is a little peek at a big piece I am working on ..... I should have it finished by next week and off if will go to Florida to the "Humidity Gallery".

When will I find the time????

I feel like I am on this gigantic tread mill and my goal is just outside my arms grasp..... I am forever running . I was a volunteer at my sons Cub scout banquet yesterday. I arrived at 1:30 to set up and I returned home at 8:30 that evening. The banquet was between 4:30 and 7:00. The things we do in the name of our children..... I am not even sure if I ate and if I did..... well did I taste the food!

I spent today as a volunteer in my youngest classroom and then I was a volunteer at my oldest Jump rope for heart event. I am subbing for 1/2 the day at my kids school tomorrow and then I will take my youngest to his doctors appt. . I am thinking that I can finally get back to creating by tomorrow evening. I think tonight I will still be on the treadmill in my dreams , I only wish it would burn the calories in my real life.

New things.....

I just finished this little house today. This will be sold for charity. It will be in I am not sure when it will be posted..... I will have to give you an update. This charity will benefit a single mother in Haiti and the money will help her build a home.

This piece is in my shop right now. I call it The Family meeting.
I also have added some more prints. I just took a bunch of stuff out to send to a store in Tallahassee " The Humidity Gallery". My work seems to be doing better in person than online at the moment. I hope to have another update soon.
I just picked my youngest up from school. He threw up in class. I am preparing myself for the worst.

Pillows, Pillows and a tree ......

I just finished this Tree pillow and I must say , I like the way it turned out. My boys ( including husband ) have been instructed that no dirty boy head will be placed on top of this. Moms of boys , you know what I mean.

This is another little pillow that I made. My pictures are awful, I have texture within the blue color ........

And here is my little tree that I just love. The picture makes my house look a bit lopsided....
I have it in a base of shells and rocks that we have collected on our vacations.
I have been battling a chest cold and trying to keep up with my little guys so I hope to have new work soon to show you.

Little peek.......

Here is a peek at what I am working on right now. I hope to have this finished and in the shop on Tuesday ( cross fingers!). I am also working on an assemblage piece just for me. I will show you more on that very soon.
Now to address my very poor spelling and grammatical errors( yes I am aware that there is a spell check ). I am a horrible speller ........ I hope that everyone will be able to overlook this and if I have a grammatical error..... please I assure you I can speak proper English, I just type really fast and sometimes I do not proof read. Perhaps I am committing a blogger Faux pa .........
Have a great Friday the 13th! No scary movies for me !!!

Is it really almost Valentines Day??

The days just keep whizzing by me. My older one was home sick for 3 days this week and I am feeling a headache coming on . I am in denial that I could be getting sick so ..... I will keep plugging through . I bought the kids teachers some candy to put in little bags for Valentines ..... I thought I was ahead of the game when I got them on Monday. Slowly I have nibbled.... a little here , a little there. Needless to say I had to go out tonight to get more candy! Chocolate is my weakness!

Happy Valentines!!!!

New Birdies coming soon.....

No. 1 Bird

No. 2 Bird
I am having fun with my new linocut birds. Unfortunately I can never be satisfied with just the ink and paper...... I have the need to embellish and I am o.k. with this. I struggled for a long time with process and method. This can really translate into everything in life. We all see things within this box that " people" ( I loved to know where they meet to make all the rules!) seem indicate how things should be done. For some things... yes , there is a definite way to do them. However for most we have our individual insight to do what is right for us.
So , I add paper to my linocut. What might you do today that is somewhat out of the box???

Sneak peek....

This is a sneak peek of what I am working on now. My work space gets a tad messy as you can see. One gal will have tree branches as hair with birds and the other will have vine hair with flowers and butterflies. I hope to have these done by the weekend or early next week.

Talk to you soon,


A try at prints...

Here is my little birdie. I like adding the paper scraps but I think I will try this in another color or maybe do a series of them..... hmmm I need to think a bit.

I love my chairs .... I like using my favorite vintage grocery invoices as background.

One in blue..... these might be in my shop soon.
