New Art Journal Plans....

I've decided my next "body of work" will be a series of the Divine Feminine (Madonnas, Goddesses, etc.) So, for some odd reason, I was inspired by Pam Carriker (don't ya love her!) in this VIDEO.

So this is my first practice piece.

The next picture is the cover of the Journal I purchased and put into a spiral bound book to be my "Goddess Journal".

I blogged about this HERE.

Thanks for checking in.

More Birthday Give Aways! GOT CAKE?

Whew, now that Christmas is over, the holiday still continues in my heart. I don't really feel relief, in fact, it's kinda sad that suddenly all the Christmas music stops.  But I'm on a roll now, for my BIRTHDAY GIVE AWAY.

Today I am gifting one of my cupcake paintings. It measures about 4x5", painted on a studio canvas, no need to frame.

Keep leaving your comments. I'll pick random numbers on January 4th and will send the winners my/their birthday gifts!

Sweetest Blessings for continuous Holiday Joy

Free Calendar

Hello dear friends... Hope you're having a happy holiday! Everything is done at my house, so I spent some time today creating a blank calendar for next year. Feel free to copy and paste (or drag) to your desktop, or what ever. I created it in photoshop then saved as a jpeg.

It's for my 3 ring 6x9 datebook. (Decided not to buy one this year.) It's ready to print at 8.5x11 landscape. If you cut right at 5.5 you'll have space to punch holes. I printed mine on cardstock and glued them onto last years (opps, it's still this year!) tab pages. Now I can clown around with my pens and colored pencils.  If you can't nab it from here, send me your email and I'll send you a high resolution jpeg.

Sweet blessings!

Birthday Give Away!

Finally, I've finished my Christmas crafting and baking. Now I can turn my thoughts to the New Year and my.... SIXTY-FIFTH birthday! January 4th.  And I'm celebrating this year with a few gift aways. I have several items in mind and will be listing them in the next few days.

Today, I'm starting by giving away one of my hand-made spiral journals.

This sweet journal is approximately 4.5 x 5 inches, the chipboard front and back are covered with paste papers I made last October in Oregon. (See old post.)

Heavy weight art paper inside will support light washes, pencils, and most drawing tools.

 All you have to do to enter is
leave a comment and join my site.
I'll be choosing randomly on my birthday
(Jan 4th) and will mail packages that day. (Of course I'll include some random goodies too!)

Last Christmas Mini Book for the year....

Tadaaa. I just finished my last mini album for this season. This one is for our family Pirate Gift Exchange. You know, everyone picks a number. 1st person picks a gift and unwraps it. Persons 2, 3, etc. can steal your gift or choose a new one. It's a rollicking good time! And always so funny! Secretly, I'm hoping my niece Lisa will end up with it.

So, my sweetie Molly agreed to be my prop this morning, holding up the book. I didn't get all the pages, but this gives you an idea.
