Today I finished my "Play" banner that I started a couple weeks ago at my friend Heather's house. The banner is made of gessoed muslin with a variety of materials including felt, wire, paper, and ribbon. I will hang it in my studio to remind me to take time to play.
The other thing I finished was a journal page using the crepe paper rose tutorial I found last night online.
It's a good thing I have the blogging without obligations badge on my blog, cuz it surely has been quite a hiatus since I last blogged.
My Husband and I bought a new house and moved in. I'm happy to say we are settled in nicely and loving it here. I resigned from a job that was making me miserable and stealing the joy from my life (no pun intended), and right now I am a stay at home wife which both my husband and I are really enjoying. I have enjoyed making a better quality of life for us at home and taking care of other errands and such so that my Husband doesn't have to bother with things once he's off from work. Life is pretty darn good right now, I must say. :)

Here are a few of my art journal pages:
And here are the larger pieces:
I am looking for an iphone app that would allow me to use blogger on my mobile phone. I haven't had much success in the app store, so if anyone knows of a good blogger app for iphone please let me know.
I have more to share, but I'll save the rest of the updates for a later post. I'm anxious to go check on my favorite blogs and see what you all have been up to while I was away!
I have an inner child with a very loud voice. I am still learning and improving in my artistic skill. I enjoy whimsical and gothic art because it makes me smile. I enjoy connecting with other artists to gain inspiration.
