man in the moon


Decided to do a little painting. Got this far in one day. I have used this image in a collage in the past. Can't get this guy out of my head.

I gave Logan this art journal and he has already done several pages. Love his Beverly Hills picture and his self portrait.

My grandson and I made these out of matchboxes and scrapbook paper. This project was in this months Country Living. I enjoyed it. Him? Not so much.

No pictures today. I sewed my dress and it looks a lot like a flour sack.

elephant crystals




This is what Logan and I worked on this weekend. He did the Scull beads and I wrapped the large crystal. I added mine to his lamp after he went home. He thought I should make a key chain for my new camera bag so I did. Love it. I wrapped the elephant crystals the other day.

OMG! I'm so excited. I found this cool National Geographic camera bag at my favorite freight store! Paid forty. Priced at from eighty to sixty online. So, not that great of a deal but LOVE it. Always hated my old bulky black bag. AND, it matches my purse. Ahhh. Great shopping day.

dye samples

hand dyed fabric




I love the way this is turning out. First I cut out the caftan. Then I hand dyed the unbleached muslin using the Rit Dye Microwave instructions. Easy! Love the marbling effect without jacking with resist or worse yet wax. I then rubber stamped some crackle effect and pounded fresh pansy's onto the hem. Not sure if I'm done with my altered fabric. Tomorrow I may do some hand embroidery. Anxious to sew this up and wear it to the pool!
