It's A Girl ! & Miss Lucy

Last Thursday , I went with my sister-in-law for a level 2 ultrasound , they said it's going to be a girl. I'm excited , it'll be fun to have a little girl to spoil. I feel like I'm going to be a grandmother again , my dh's mother and father have passed. He's the oldest , so we'll be considered the grandparents kinda. I've always been very close with my husband's family.

Pam , My sil is pregnant , not the the cat . I hope we don't have kittens too. Lucy the cat is doing just fine , her leg is still healing and she will be going home this week. Posting a picture of Miss Lucy.

I didn't get a chance to post about Spring Fling , but will post sometime this week. I'm working on my altered books , I have 5 started.Will tell you more about them this week.

I have ordered " The Secret" dvd and hopefully it will be here this week.
I'm looking forward to watching it and gaining more insight about positive thinking and good thoughts. Hope it's as good as everyone has said it is.

Hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend.

Altered Books / My Current Passion

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Water Spirit Legends ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This is the title for my new altered book. I 've really been enjoying making altered books.I started my first altered book , a halloween book back in the fall , but never finished it.For Christmas I made my 2 daughters a altered style scrapbook.Using altered style techniques I created them a wonderful scrapbook with photos from their childhood at christmas.They loved their books.

My current book will be all about mermaid legends. I'm posting a photo of the cover , although it is still a work in progress.I'm hoping to create a fun , cute , whimsical style book.It has a 3-d effect , real sand , shells and other items.I'll be posting more about this book as it comes together.

I'm planning to make a altered book for the SPRING FLING giveaway . Will post more about the giveaway tonight or tommorrow.

Hope you're blessed with a wonderful day !

Sick Kitty , Studio and Art Swaps ~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Sick Kitty

Something attacked my sister-in-law's cat last week and I have been nursing it back to health.The vet put it on a antibiotic , twice a day. Since she is pregnant , I volunteered to look after Lucy. She's doing better.


GlitterSis Kai has inspired me to create a art studio I've been thinking about it for awhile and after seeing Kai's studio , I'm ready to clean out the spare bedroom. It's become nothing but a junkroom anyway. So this weekend I plan to start cleaning it out. Hopefully I'll have a studio by spring.

Art Swaps

Frida Kahlo Swap

I finished my self portrait .Don't you love my big hair , I got carried away , its not that full.That's my spirit cat Buddy.He showed up one morning at my business , when he was just a tiny kitten.He's been with me about 10 years.I call him my spirit cat , he seems to understand every word I say to him.My dh says he doesn't act like a cat , I told him that was because he's a spirit.
Now , I 've just got to get them in the mail to Pam.And get started on my crow pages.

Birthday / Frida / And a Mermaid

Saturday night my oldest daughter and her husband cooked steak and pork chops for my husband's birthday. His birthday was yesterday , but they wanted to celebrate saturday night.

SUNDAY - A day of rest and creating - good for the soul !

I decided to do another self portrait for the Frida swap , still working on it.Glad Pam changed the due date.

I'm posting a mermaid atc , I created this weekend.I couldn't get a good photo of it.My new camera is the pits.Well anyway , I did this mermaid with watercolor pencils and glitter pens.I added some real seashells ,sea glass and glittered sand.She's not a great work of art , but she's cute and was fun to create.

Playing in the Snow !!!

Yesterday , it snowed . It only snowed a inch or so , but it was just enough for Curious J to enjoy. We spent most of the day outside playing in the snow. It was J's first time in the snow , he loved it.We don't see much snow here , so it was exciting.He loved making footprints on the walkway and throwing snowballs.

I've had a busy week and haven't had time to create anything.Hope everyone is creating and having fun.
