You and Me

 So...V-Day is behind me and I survived (without a Valentine)!! Although i have to admit i was sort of sad (something inside me really was-me heart????) but i SURVIVED!! Without a piece of chocolate i might add. Better luck next year for me- ha!  I give up on love for now (well- it's been a long time) ...but somewhere- someday- it's gonna happen for me and when it does- it's gonna be awesome and will have been worth the wait- for shizzle!!

Boy- there's bigger and better things out than my lack of Valentine love...check this out. It really touches my soul. WOW!
 Enjoy- Peace.
PS- I painted all WEEKEND!! Was so FUN! :)

Flying Pink Guitar

Ok- so here's something that just tickles me "pink".
I am falling in love...all over again!! With guess what??? MY GUITAR! Can i just say that i have a re-newed passion. I have been playing a lot lately and have even taken a lesson to learn "rockin leads"! I learned to play the guitar when i was a little girl (around 13ish) and have always loved music. I played for year's in my mom and dad's band (played the drums back then) and have always plucked my guitar here and there. Mostly in love with acoustic but now i'm falling for the Hard Rock- not heavy or death metal---just the harder rock and i'm loving it!
so here "he" is....he's old but "he" plays like a champ! Someday...a new guitar. It's on my Christmas list.
Enjoy your evening...play some music...it's good for the soul (for mine anyway)!!

Hope you enjoy your evening...I'm really not loving this snow biz. Where's my sunshine???

To my special Valentine...

I LOVE Valentine's Day!!! Finally put together my little pieces of love. I think i like em...it's funny. I had great ideas to paint my hearts (fully inspired by an artist from the most recent Paper Cloth Scissors- love this!) and make them all into mini wall hangings...um...that's not what evolved. I decided to make them into little "mini dream books". I adore little books/journals...so here you have it. Paint, a few stitches,a little fabric, a few pages to write/paint/doodle on (made of Rosin paper) and a whole lot of love. These little morsels of love are headed to the mail box tomorrow. :)

I hope you create some valentines of your own...they are so special- you could make someone's day with just a little love note. Love....i think the world could use a little more of it.

I used some shiny little clips to hold the little book together...hopefully they will hold all the hopes and dreams together.

My neice...little girls have big dreams! I hope she draws and paints in it. She already loves art and LOVES to paint!! Yea!!!

Used some of my favorite "shiny fibers" (i can't remember the name of it as i write this).

Love you forever... i used LOTS of glitter on this one and the one below...i just LOVE glitter!!

Mini "LOVE" wall hanging... below is a close up of the stitching...look closely....i have lots of "love" messages stitched into the fabric.
