Autumn Colours

I made this cus I love Autumn colours for
even though I'm spending every waking moment 
getting ready to travel up north with a good friend
for an Art Journalling Weekend.

Woo Hoo!

It's going to be a blast.

So thanks for coming by and I'll see you after the weekend.
With a big smile on my face.

Over and Out.

This week's theme is Your Choice
The photo is one I took on a trip to Cuba and the quote
is by Germaine Greer.
(It's kind of my mantra)

Challenge #166 at
So into my Halloween drawer I went...
And since  October 31st is pretty much my favoritest holiday of all,
I was thrilled (get it, thrilled?, mwahahahaha....)
by this thrilling theme.
I made ATC's,
Well, I actually made them for a swap, but what the hey,
Boo is Boo, right?

Did I mention I have a Halloween drawer?
Oh, I did?
Well, never mind that, this is
just the beginning.
You have until Saturday, October 5th 
to link up with us 
and that gives you
plenty of time to make something scary
and still put your parka 
over your Halloween costume 
(if you're Canadian) 
and get out there with a pillowcase
just begging to be filled with sugary goodness.  

See you there!

If I didn't have to work.

First, we did SUMMER:
and now we're doing AUTUMN:
 I'll see you when the snow flies.

Have a funny day.
Unless you have other plans.

Our World Tuesday

Our picnic spot.
I like that this is only 1/2 hour away from where I live.
Like is sweet.

Jingle Belle Vintage

It's kind of hard to tell, but I cut out the window panes 
and put my image behind the window.
Then I wrapped a sheet of acrylic over top of the cards 
and put little puffs of snow on it.
And some snow along the window panes.
The Sentiment was cut from another vintage card.
A spring of holly
(vintage plastic - lol)
And another card is done.

You know you still have time to get all your cards done before December.
check it out,
You won't regret it!

Let your imagination go wild!
I started with a cityscape

Tumblefish Studios,
Bluesse, Holliewood Studios, and Berna Datema

Does it convey my angst (that's such a great word)
 at some of the challenges of a big city?

But I continued on, on a more (I hope) positive note:

All elements used here are by Beth Rimmer.

Please come on over to
and play along with us.
We have fun.
You know we do.

You have until the end of 
Saturday, September 21st to link up with your
citified creation.

We look forward to seeing what you create!

Weekend Reflections

The Weekend in Black and White

Fortunately this photo is not of THIS weekend.
It's a shot of an area where I work that was flooded-this is all supposed to be dry land.
It's under about 5 feet of rushing water.
I was going through my pics and this caught me up short.
Now all that's left is the rebuilding.
I prefer dry.
No doubt about it.

Thanks for coming by.

Wooden You?

The September Readers Art Quest Challenge #1 is
Just create something with wood in it.
It just so happens, I picked up
a wooden owl at Mikey's one day, 70% off or something
a while ago, and
it's been hooting at me ever since to do something with it.
I think she looks rather Unruly, don't you?
I shall name her Matilda.

All of Matilda's parts are very bold and very old from my stash, 
so I can't give any credits.
Kind of like me.

Thanks for coming by,
be sure to check out

Our World Tuesday

That's what I did this weekend.
How about you?

JIngle Sketch

I am so proud of myself.
I managed to make a
Christmas card for the
challenge before the challenge was over!
I hope you're impressed.
And I even like it!
Life is good.
