It's a rainbow of birdies...

it's a go.....

I've been invited to consign some of my art at a new shop here in my city, the shop is one of those quaint cottages made into commercial businesses.  I'm so excited, ya'll!  Check out the link to The White Dove

Here's one of my first pieces I'm working on....please remember it's a work in progress and has a whole lot more work to it.  If you squint your eyes just right you may be able to see where I'm going with it.
Sorry for the horrible photography...Who's a photog friend in my followers--gimme some tips!

you can't see it very clearly...but it will eventually say, "Sing a new Song" and the birdie will  stand out more.  Can't wait to try some of my new techniques I'm learning.  Whoopie!

 I'm also working on a blog header and business cards, etc.  I'm leaning toward something with these two favorite little characters: Pepe(the one antenna-ed ladybug) and Myrtle--the cute one.  The MR named these cute little hand-me-down salt/pepper shakers...he named them after us.
Watch for more news as the weeks progress.

By the way..for those of you that know I'm on a personal crusade to BAN Mondays from our calendars will like to know that incidents that happened today proving that Mondays are a bad idea.

Let's see if I can put this in a polite way, so as not to offend, or to end up in a file in my personnel folder at work.  We had a department conference call and well.....the...uhm....pressure is on.

That's all I can say.

Well...I guess I could say one more thing. At the end of this hairy day, the fella in the office next door to mine, (works for another company), stuck his head in my office door and said, "You ok?"
"Sure." I says with not much conviction (thinking to myself--oh, if I could only say what I really think)
The fella asks again, "Are you sure?  Have you looked in the mirror?"
Feeling a bit embarrassed, "I said, no....why?"
"You look like you've been riding in a convertible and your hair is wind blown!"
Needless to say...there was no riding in a convertible for me.  I'm guessing unconsciously I was pulling my hair while working through some of Monday(durn you Monday**raising hand in air and fist pumping**) problems.

Welcome Tuesday......

Who knew you could do this? amazing way to waste time and become inspired.

I think I searched "Mixed Media" and came across some AmaZeBaLLs projects. I'm sure ya'll have heard of Christy Tomlinson, if not..then you need to stop reading RIGHT now and head to her blog.

Just kidding...

Stay here for just a little longer.

Any I am wading through all the beautiful photos on Pinterest and scroll to a video.
Huh, what's that?
A video on Pinterest(I'm new to this pinterest thing...)



I've included the video below.  But, first...check out my first attempt at adding dimension with Modeling Paste.  (is that spelled right?)

Eventually this canvas will have a bird on a birdhouse with the word SING on it.  It's all in the works.  Come back to see more!

Vogue Chapeau

Last night the MR and I watched the finale of Project Runway ALLSTARS, and of course we had to get into the fashion mood.....

How come he looks better in his chapeau then I do? By the way...he is such a good sport--he always plays my silly games.  Thank you MR!

News Day Tuesday

Heidi Klum stood up!? 

I've decided to feature what's trending in the world of news today......this news will only be fun, silly and purely delightful content.
If you want the real news...go turn on CNN. just saying.

Heidi Klum stood up!?
How is it possible to stand up the woman once know as "The Body."
But not just because she has that body, but just because she was adorable.  She seems to have a charm about her (plus she is German!)  and is anyone just a upset as I am that her and Sting are splitting up.

Heidi was at a UNICEF fundraiser where celebrities where singing karoake to raise money.  Smokey Robinson was supposed to sing with Heidi and he stood her up.
How does that happen?
But Heidi was nonplussed said,  "Smokey stood me up. He was supposed to sing My Girl with me. Will anybody else sing with me?"  The host suggested everyone help with a rendition of YMCA. Tom Hanks and wife was the first to jump  on the stage to help Heidi out!

And there you go... the NEWS of the day!

Monday is a lame way to spend 1/7 of your life!

My effort to ban mondays is coming along just a stand against Mondays I am taking the day off from work.
 Yeah, that's right.
Not going to work today.
Not gonna do it!
I'm going to stay in my pjs until I have to...

But, wait...I'm still going to work.
I am working with a local charity to put on an event. Lots of work today--but in a good way!
See you tomorrow!

Hold on Sunday, I ain't ready for Monday

Happy Sunday Ya'll!
Today I will travel a bit up the road to visit my mom and sister who where in a head-on car collision last week.  Before you panic, they are both ok.  Remember I have the cutest mom on the planet and that cuteness  translate to resilience. Margie, my sister, has a jammed thumb and mom has a cracked rib.

They are both healing, but still need to take it easy.  Me and my twinny are going to visit today and do some housework.

I wish I could be there everyday for my mom and dad.  Seems like a lot of pressure is on my sister Margie.  What to do, what to do?  Send up prayers and healing thoughts to these two very special ladies!

Monday is a lame way to spend 1/7 of your life.

Don't we all really want to complain about getting up early and running out the door to work.  So, why not be freaking honest about it. Why not make this a safe place to complain about our work, coworkers, bosses and our jobs in general.   Hence the title of this posting!
I hereby ban Mondays from the calendar.

Hold on Sunday, I ain't ready for Monday

Boohiss, it's almost Monday.
As you all know I am on a personal campaign to ban Mondays.  Check back tomorrow to  see where I'm going with my ban tomorrow.

Ya'll need to visit The Altered Paper Blog for some fun swaps that she hosts. I've entered into the 12 month swap and am really stretching and learning new techniques.  Go by and tell her Georgie sent ya!

In the meantime we'll visit a little tag I made for my swap partner, Mercedes from All Things Pretty .  I was uninspired, but then...magic happened.

Literally, this little fairy appeared on the tag.
No, not literally, but it was fun to say.

This is a new look for me..I've added more flowers to my stash and am incorporating them more.
What do you think?

 Added some stickles to the edges of flowers.
Flip side....
The photo is from a RAK I won a few months back.  
Happy Sunday!

We ain't in Kansas anymore...toto

There were some horrible storms going through the countries middle and also through Nashville TN.
Thankfully, our little piece of earth went undisturbed.

Others were not as lucky as we, but emergency preparedness is very important.  Me, the MR AND Sookie (in the kennel) had to take cover in our bathroom while a storm passed by.
