Great movie...

I loved the movie (Julie&Julia). I think Julia was a kick in the pants! I have watched Julia Child on PBS and other TV spots- what a cool woman! Hope you get out to see the movie. We had a wonderful time! We enjoyed the movie and had a blast looking at all the cool shops at the Cherry Creek Mall- wow! I have been a good girl this year and Santa must prepare...it's gonna be a long list! AL- thanks for the treat!! :)

Enjoy your day- make it a special one! I'm headed out to get the new Somerset (Mixed Media magazine).....SUZI BLU IS IN THERE!!!!! Can't wait to get it in my little hands.......... I hope they have it....that will make me combust if they don't.

I had SOO much fun making this "fairy jar" (i think that's what they are called). Used an old jelly jar and cut out a fairy, glued lots of glitter and other fun jewels on her, filled the jar with rose petals, stars, more glitter, splashed a little paint behind her and ta-da....It's a fairy in a jar for my niece!! Hope she likes it...
Well- this is another weekend creation... not sure i like her. Her face is too long but it's just what happened. The cool thing is....is that i didn't "look" at anything when i created her. I just went with it and this is what came of a brave moment.
Her brown eyes....
and she is a dreamer....

I would like to thank all of you for taking a look at our blog- that makes me feel so good inside to open my blog and see a comment or two. That really flips my skirt. :)
Matthew has started school- he is a FRESHMAN in HIGH SCHOOL!! OMGoodness....where o where has the time gone??? Whew- can't believe my "baby boy" is in high school. I am excited, thrilled and a little nervous...what fun- to be a teenager and have so little responsibilities. If we only knew then what we know now. Would you do it any differently if you could do it all over again? I sure as heck would...

enjoy your day- make it a great one!
see you next time-

Calm Weekend...

Just enjoying the weekend...it's still outside and the sun is shining. I have had a pitcher of Passion Tazo tea and enjoyed a cold glass outside with my Lucy. Had a fun morning and painted a little last night. I have soo missed painting and creating- been busy with life and work. We must MAKE time for our fun- for our passion. Doesn't matter if it's big or small or what it is. We all know what fires us up...what makes our engines run. I know what does it for me- what does it for you?? Here's a couple pages...not sure if i like em...but it's what was created and it released lots of stress. The lady isn't finished- need to work on the bird and add lots of glitter (not done till i do this). Have fun today! :)
