House Chunky book Swap

We are doing a chunky book in my BOOKARTZ Yahoo group

This is where my muse took me. I had it all drawn out to add little rooms, with my fish, birds, flowers, and adopted cat. But my muse had other ideas. Ok, so here is the explanation on how this came about. I live in Central CA. where wine is king. Hence, the grape printed napkin. My Grandchildren are the center of my universe, so this little one reminded me of one of them. (couldn't fit all 14 on one 3x7 page.)

Now I just have to come up with the chunky part to add to it and its good to go. I hope. LOL

Metal Tape Embossing

The first one I scanned alone, the others I scanned together. Hence, the difference in size. These are ATC's for a metal tape swap. I am not a dry emboss person, so this was my first attempt. Learn something new all the time. Stay tuned for Teesha Moores ATC's. Those are a work in progress at the moment.


If you scroll down, you will see how these started out. They are now completed and ready to go out for a swap. When they come home, I will attach them with something and hang with a dowel or branch of some kind. Will post, when I figure it out.

Crazy life

Its been awhile since I have posted. Life is crazy in the summer months, with painting the house, redoing bedding in flower gardens. Can't seem to keep up with my art these days, but I do have a few things to share. I will get them posted ASAP.

I've been TAGGED

Tagging is a blog thing where you tag a fellow blogger to post 7 things about themselves. So here goes.

1. Favorite time of day for me is early morning. Its when I get the most done in my day. Especially in the summer months, because it gets so hot here in the afternoon.

2. Art is my favorite past time. I would love to own my own studio where I can have classes and play all day.

3. I love to read. Give me a good book and a corner and I will be good for the rest of the day.

4. I love flowers and like to garden WHEN its cool out. I want a garden that has little room areas around the yard where you can sit and rest and just take in nature. I have one wall that I am thinking of taking a paintbrush to and doing a mural.

5. I am a shopaholic when it comes to art supplies, like all artists and crafters are. If I don't have it handy then I need to order it. Need to get out of that habit and work with found objects more.

6. I have a dream to go to Mexico and take a class with Micheal Deming. He does such fun work and I want to go on one of his junk hunts down there. Wouldn't that be fun? YES it would for me.

7. I love to travel, hubby is a stay at home, so we don't go out much. I want to go to swap meets, antique shops, junk stores, just spend a month and collect all types of fun finds to work with. Told you I was a shopaholic. LOL

On a personal note, I find it hard to communicate with people I don't know, in a group inviorment. Takes me awhile to warm up and have a conversation. Guess thats # 8. So I will go find someone to tag now. Thanks Charleen for the tag. LOL
