Good morning! I hope you’ve had a good week so far. We’ve had a great couple of days with Hadlee who is starting babble . . . I’m trying to teach her to say yaya, since that’s what I’ve decided I should be called. I know it’s Greek for grandmother (at least that’s what my Greek girlfriends are called by their grandchildren) but there is also something about those Divine Secrets . . . .
I spent the better part of yesterday working on a mixed media canvas that I have posted on the Quietfire Creations Blog today. There quite the mixture of watercolor paper, embossing paste, stencils, paints, inks . . .
There’s a slew of pictures and more details posted on the Quietfire Creations Blog so I hope you’ll hop over and take a look!
Thanks for stopping by here today and remember . . . life is short, use the whole box of crayons!
Happy Monday! Once again another week has slipped by me and I had absolutely no studio time. I had a little house guest last week because her momma was out of town on a school trip and this grandma got very little of anything else done.
After a couple of events this weekend, I did finally get my behind in the studio and work up something for the Quietfire Creations Blog today.
There are more photos and all the details on the Quietfire Creations Blog.
Hopefully I’ll have a little time over the next couple of days to get back in the studio. I’m missing my inkiness!
Thanks for stopping by today and remember . . . life is short, eat dessert first!
Good morning! I hope everyone had a great Easter weekend with lots of family, chocolate and college hoops. We had the entire fam damily in for dinner and then Hadlee spent the night so she would be here bright and early Monday morning and Kate didn’t have to drive her down. We are all trying to get back into our daily routine after their 2 week Spring Break . . . one of the perks of year-round school.
As I typed the title of this post I had to snicker just a little. Our little Hadlee took her first tumble on the morning of Easter Sunday and came in the door with a banbain (what my girls used to call bandages) on her noggin’ and a big old knot. She tried to sit up while on the changing table and all it took was a couple of seconds and she was down and on the floor. She’s fine luckily and yes, I did get a couple of photos of Hadlee with her Gigi . . .
Last week I received the new March stamps from Quietfire Design in the mail and today I have a project posted over on the Quietfire Creations Blog using one of the new ones. To see more pictures and the details I hope you’ll visit over there.
That’s all for me today! I’m going back to my tax records (yes I know I only have a few more days to get it all together for the preparer . . . which isn’t me) and then hopefully I’ll find some more studio time.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy the adventures that come your way today!
Wow I can’t believe that this project has been a week in the making! I did get a little side tracked with appointments, errands and even basketball (go Hoosiers) . . . just couldn’t help myself!
This is a 6×6 mixed media canvas that has been on my mind for some months . . . it just took awhile to get it done. Because I used cardboard (chipboard) for the heart, it also qualifies for the March eTeam Picks Challenge. You still have time to participate in the challenge and you can read more about it at the above link.
The word Believe was made with some old alphabet stencils and Black Studio 490 Embossing Paste. The canvas was painted with my new Distress Paints and the flowers (made from watercolor paper) were colored with Distress Stains.
I ran out of my gold leafing pen while right in the adding the flecks, so I followed up with gold acrylic paint mixed with water.
Short and sweet from me today . . .
Thanks for stopping by!
Good Monday morning! I hope you had a great weekend . . . well for that matter a great last week. I didn’t find as much studio time as I wanted last week. Fortunately, Kate is on Spring Break for the next two weeks (year-round school schedule now) and I know that I’ll find plenty of time during the day to get inky and crafty. I’ve got some big projects that I’ve been putting off so I’m looking forward to the time to get in the studio. Now this is not to say that I won’t miss seeing Hadlee every morning . . . I’m just looking forward to a little “me” time!
I spent the weekend working on a project that I’ve posted on the Quietfire Creations Blog today. I hope you hop over and take a closer look at all the extra photos and the details.
That’s it for me right now. I’ve got some appointments this morning, a few errands after that and then it will be time to get my craft on! Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the adventures that come your way today!
