What I have been up to these past few days

Well Christmas has come and gone.  It was a little traumatic for me.  We had an ice storm in Arkansas on Christmas and I was out of power for two days.  I fell down the stairs (again) but at least I did not break my leg this time :-)  I only got a concussion and was in bed for two days and not able to do very much for the past few days.  When I did feel a little better, I sat at my desk and worked on backgrounds and a new 2013 mixed media book.  I will post some of the pages and backgrounds that I did......

This is my first experience with a "Smashbook" style journal.  I recently started art journaling and love it!  Someone on Instagram (my new hangout) was talking about this free class on Smashbooks and I HAD to try it :-)  the website is and it's called "Got Glue?".  Anyway, here are my backgrounds from my first lesson........ think I'll do some more .....

My Tribute to the Connecticut Community

Playing Catchup..... Sooooo far behind :-)

Ok, so we are all busy these days with the holidays inching closer and closer!  So much to do!  Anyway, my grandmother has been in the hospital, I have been clearing land for a homestead (yes, you heard me right, I am a crazy tree hugger gonna live on a farm LOL), getting ready for a family Christmas at my house, and dealing with my husband's ex-wife who refused to put his daughter on the plane this time even though it is court ordered that she spends this Christmas break with us....... whooooooo....... anyhoo....enough about my personal life.  I will be posting my December Daily pages here shortly as well as a few other things, including a piece that I did for the families of the children and teachers of the Connecticut shooting last week.  My heart really goes out to all of those families as I am sure yours does as well.  So, enough, I need to start posting :-)

A little help for my friends .......starting out in any form of art it's good to have a basic understanding

Art Appreciation - understanding the qualities of great art.

Healing Angel Painting
