jean jacket refashion

Stayed up until 3am working on this passion flower and barely got the outline done. Sure hope it turns out because that pocket is a bitch to embroider on!

coloring book by mic

Having fun coloring in my homemade coloring book. Using markers and gel pens so far. The doodle on upper right is a sticky note I use as my scratch pad to keep my pens fresh. 

So glad to have saved my odd sheets of paper. That fuchsia on the lower right was just a doodle while on the phone or distracted. Sorry about the bad pictures, used my phone and not a good angle.

Check out these lips I found at the thrift store for my gelli plate!

no more Necco

 Ate the entire tube in one setting even though I should have hoarded them. Necco has closed until further notice! Tell me it isn't so.

Finally decide to drip passion vine down the right front portion of the jean jacket. The rick rack reminds me of a trellis.

acrylic pour

Had some fun with the leftover paint and did a couple of pours on some 78 records.  I ruined the pretty one! Bad art week, everything I touched turned out shitty if not shitty then I ruined it somehow in the process. 

Dang, I placed a piece of the foam core over the records to keep dust off them, only laid it sideways and put it on top of the right one. Going to redo it! F#$%

Miss Lucy and bad flea control

Miss Lucy gave us a big scare this week, she had to go in for grooming and when we got there she started bleeding! We both panicked and the vet did about $400 bucks worth of tests. Yikes, so worried and then I remembered that we had started a new flea treatment just five days ago. FRONTLINE GOLD, that shit is going in the trash. The vet said it was a 1 in 20,000 side effect but actually make that 2 in 20,000 because I said something to John about Riki's urine looking dark the other DAY! 

If anyone has had a similar experience I really would like to hear about it and what you use for flea control. Thanks ladies.

She is feeling better today but really tired and on antibiotics for the next two weeks. Riki is not much better because he went in today and had his teeth cleaned, one removed and then his grooming! Poor babies should be all set for summer.

Miss Queenie likes my chair, she is like Princess and the Pea. I bought outdoor cushions last week and piled them in the living room before taking them outside. She climbed that pile and claimed them as hers.
She does have great taste in men because she passed up about 50 guys and laid right on my husbands boot that day. He has loved her from that moment on.
Here she is just one short year ago, no telling how long she had been living under the bridge on the Kaw River in KC KS. Poor baby was gray and had huge mouse sized mattes in her hair.

We hope she gets to enjoy all the beds in the house for a very long time. Love her so much!

cell phone holder

Looky what my husband rigged up for me! It is a cell phone holder for doing art videos! He used a cheap vent phone holder, a yardstick and a cool clamp. I did not want to pay 40 bucks for a tripod that wouldn't work for me.

I love it and him! We have been married 36 years today!

Jean jacket refashion

Added another detail to my jean jacket, my fingers are so sore! That is about six layers of denim and rick rack. Ouch.

I want to add a few climbing flowers but need a rest. I have been going through my beads and have found some cute little accents.
