wow, not even 10am yet!

Okay, I have not done these today, but I have done a LOT of stuff.... all critters have been fed/watered. Back yard trees have been watered. Dishes done. Coffee drank. Posted for the Saturday Strengths on HighLowAha. Email checked. 17th annual Festival addresses formatted for mailout. Tomorrow's book for group discussion has been read & highlighted at topic spots. My art group databases have been updated. Now "all" that is left is making some decos for my art groups and some greeting cards for my rack @ Bastrop Producer's Market!

This picture is of a technique called "One Sheet Wonder" where you decorate an 8.5x11" sheet of paper & then use it to make as many cards as possible using those pecies to tie them all together. I think the most I have ever gotten out of a single OSW is 11 cards. :-o

Home free as the wind blows

Tonight is home free. That means nowhere I have to be, nothing I have to do (except a quick stop for milk) and nothing on the evening agenda except Dragon Baths. Those did not get done Tuesday because we went in search of a chest freezer. Our journey ended when we found one @ Sam's. Lowe's, Home Depot & Sear's SELL them but they do not STOCK them, which seems a bit odd to me. Good thing we have a Sam's card!

This one is titled "oriental" for the background paper. Then I stamped the woman holding the fan on bottom right & the kanji on the top left, which I embossed with red EP. there is a stamped phrase on lower left but it is hard to see here. In real life it is embossed with black EP.

still amazing., still sick

I kept the right ones out
And let the wrong ones in
Had an angel of mercy to see me through all my sins
There were times in my life
When I was goin' insane
Tryin' to walk through
The pain
When I lost my grip
And I hit the floor
Yeah, I thought I could leave but couldn't get out the door
I was so sick and tired
Of a livin' a lie
I was wishin' that I
Would die

It's Amazing
With the blink of an eye you finally see the light
It's Amazing
When the moment arrives that you know you'll be alright
It's Amazing
And I'm sayin' a prayer for the desperate hearts tonight

That one last shot's a Permanent Vacation
And how high can you fly with broken wings?
Life's a journey not a destination
And I just can't tell just what tomorrow brings

You have to learn to crawl
Before you learn to walk
But I just couldn't liten to all that righteous talk
I was out on the street,
Just a tryin' to survive


LLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLONG day... sigh... this is the song I woke up with and, since my brain would not reboot, I was still singing it tonight, thought I would post before crawling back into bed & seeing if I make it out in the morning or not.

Card background is natureprint paper... really.. look it up. This is done with Bastrop pine needles, a pine branch and a leaf. laid needles on the light sensitive paper, placed branch so it threw shadow, and then placed leaf directly onto paper over shadow. Counted to 60, took in & ran under cold water. Awesome stuff. only drawback is the color.. there is only 1 and this is it. Gotta like blue!
