Journal Cover and Red Lips

I finally decorated the cover of my art/anything goes journal....covered it with all the things i love in my life...I still have the back to complete. What fun it is to just cut, paste and paint....oh- how i love this feeling. the feeling of freedom- no one will judge my journal (contents or otherwise)...there are no mistakes here. I love it!

And...how i love lip gloss!!! i have to keep lip gloss on my lips at all times. I especially want this one! i will hunt for it come payday! It's pretty glossy...bet i will be able to stick to the wall with this stuff! ha!! I know this entry is random...perhaps my mind is racing in 100 different directions today. I need a candle and some soft music...i think i need to relax.

have a wonderful evening...

Frida Wood Box

Oh...how i love Frida. Have you seen the movie Frida??? it's one of my favs! i have the DVD and watch it all the time. Anyway....I have wanted something to do with Frida for a long time....decided to make something. Used a photo of Frida from a book (hurt a little to cut it out but i can appreciate her now at a glance instead of having to open her book-it's all good) and used gel medium to adhere the pic and other fun colors to the sides of the wooden box ($1 @Michaels), splashed a little paint on and then ...glued some wooden pegs deals on w/ wood glue. oh...don't ever forget the glitter...used lots of it too. :) Do you like it?
Added some beads...don't know why and i don't like em here....too bad for me...they are here to stay!
I love it!!
Glued a cool pic to the inside (bottom) .... can't wait to place something real special in here!! My mom gave me a two sided quarter (a long time ago)...i think this will be the new home of my cool quarter! I also made a calm "Zen" box for my friend Sherri...gave it to her today. I think she really liked it.

Well peops...Hope you are creating and loving life. I finished these boxes last night...so relaxing. I know the days can be tough at work and all that life tosses our way....but...even if it's just for a few minutes....create-write a couple lines- jot an idea in your journal (scrap paper if you have too).....do it for you- i do it for me and it sure feels good.

Peace to all-
Enjoy the rest of your evening-

Happy Halloween!

I can feel fall in the air (mostly in the early am's). I like it. I painted a "witchy girl" after looking at the new Cloth, Paper Scissors magazine (love that one too). I felt like eating candy corn...instead i thought i would paint. So...here she is. Had something else in mind but here's what came about. Can't wait to paint more. Want to get some wood and do some wood burning too. This witchy mamma is going to a friend. She just bought a home and she loves Halloween. Hope she likes her. (face inspired by Suzi Blu- Petite class)
have a wonderful day....i sooo want to bbq today.

New Haircut for my Matt

My son Matthew....
now this is what i call a haircut....i actually really like it. Matt is a trendsetter for hairstyles at his school (i am sure of it!). We have made it though the 1st week of High School. Um....I just can't believe my son is in HS...can't quit get over that. It is so much fun watching Matthew bloom, unfold, listen to all his dreams and most of all....be his mother. Unconditional LOVE. I love being a mom....i love you Matt.

What an artistic haircut (done my CO Reed's in Lakewood).

Enjoy your evening...i am on my way out the door with my dog Lucy...she's ready and waiting for her evening stroll.
